I'm in an exercise slump. I am having trouble making myself find the time to exercise. I get in a few little 10 minute walks a day, here and there, purposefully walking more, but that's it and it doesn't feel like real exercise to me. I'm so happy I'm down 60 lbs. I know I need to at least loose 21 more so I'm under 200. Then another 20 to be the skinniest I've been since 94 (before my daughter was born). Then I will be very happy. I still don't "see" that I've lost weight mentally. I see myself in the mirror, or the size of my clothes, and I smile, I'm happy. I forget though, and feel shy of cameras, etc. and I'm still a big girl. 16/18 bottoms and 18/20 tops. This was my first major goal - to be able to buy clothes not in the plus section, and I did, at Meijer. So I'm happy, but I know I have a ways to go. I've just plugged up every minute of my time. Between working, cleaning, cooking, taking care of my family, ebaying (selling), and family events (parties Parties parties) I haven't time to even start packing for vacation (leaving tomorrow). Our vacation isn't a "real" vacation. We are driving my daughter out East to visit her family (fathers). We will stop and see my father in NH first - first time in 8 or 9 years, he's leaving Saturday on business, so it will be a quick visit. Then we will go to my hubby's mother & step fathers and Rebecca's father's parents (same town). Then after that, I am not sure what. I really don't want to hang out there. His mom is crazy, and his sister is even crazier. Not a good crazy either. Plus we have to sleep on their floor. Yeah, nice vacation. Hubby said the shower is so nasty you want to take a shower after showering - great, even better vacation plans. NOT. We can't take our bikes - he doesn't want us to put the bike rack on the new car. I think we could just fine, if we put a towel on it first where the cords touch. BUt then he says we can't access the trunk - why do we need to? We will have the cooler and stuff in the back seat with my daughter. Oh well, we shall see what happens tomorrow. Vacation.. vacation.. vacation... I need one.. and I'm not going to accept less. ha.

Thank you all for your suggestions and thoughts!! About 2 weeks ago I felt burnt out. Between being on the computer at work all day, then going home to log more stuff on sparkpeople, and sell more stuff on ebay, I just felt burnt out. I dreaded going on the computer. So I started coming on here less and less. I do miss some of it (spark) And I'm ready to recommit myself to the next 50 lbs to lose. I did not gain (nor lose) any weight during my 2 weeks off (yeah). vacation is coming up in a week! We don't really know where we are staying yet, kinda playing it by ear. We decided we will eat sandwiches, bananas, apples, etc. as much as we can for vaca and make good food decisions as much as we can. I think we will be good. I did remind myself today that once I eat something with sugar in it, I crave it strongly the rest of the day! Grr! I ate a smaller panera cookie today, and now I just want to EAT. So I'm drinking more water and ignoring that sweet tooth. Craving is a horrible feeling, and I don't understand people who don't get cravings. It's such a strong emotion for me, and I think I need to figure out why. Is it all physical reaction, or is there something emotional? hmm... thoughts welcome on that one for sure!
Another question I have is, should I start my ticker over for the next 50 lbs? My new weight as my start weight - starting over kinda? I'm proud of what I've lost so far, and I LOVE the way pants are fitting me! I wasn't as embarassed at the pool, and I was able to wear a tankini - bottoms are 16 and top is 18!! My top still is more of a 20 though. My husband is doing the same thing - his belly is last to go, his pants went from a 52 to a 42 - and some 40s. But his shirt size is still 3XLT since his belly is so big. His shoulders/chest look good now though, more like a weight lifters. I know we will get there, and I'm not concerned with when because I am enjoying life more than I have in years. I do want to keep a mindfull eye on what I do though, making sure I eat right and exercise right, because i DONT want to go Backwards - and I know how easy it can be, one lil thing here and there, all add up!
Thank you again for your thoughts, ideas, friendships! I know I could not have gotten this far without sparkpeople people.. (lol) and I am very thankful.

So far I've gone from size 26 pants to size 16/18. I've lost over 50lbs. I've only gone from a 24/26 shirt to a 22. I've gone down a bra size (both band and cup) but only one. I'm feeling lopsided. Top heavy. I would like to add something to my exercise & workout routine that focuses on my top half catching up with my bottom half. Please, any suggestions!!!
I have the biggest loser last chance workout, 30 day jumpstart, and shred-it with weights, MTVs grind workout tape, a swiss ball, a stepper, wii & Wii Fit, PS3, treadmill, bicycle. I'm hoping to start swimming soon too (depending on weather).

Well, we celebrated our 1st anniversary as a married couple (tomorrow) today. Hubby really wanted to go out to dinner somewhere that is special (meaning, not healthy). So we went out to mexican and I did pretty good up until dessert. We couldn't agree on one to split. .so we ended up each having our own. I'm not going to beat myself up because it's a once a year thing, however, my body is VERY mad at me. I feel sick from the sugar and eating too much of the not so healthy stuff. I did drink extra extra water today, and I bought more fruit for the week. I'll be fine tomorrow morning. I just went way over in calories & bad food today. lol. The morning will bring a nice fresh banana & some oatmeal. I'm going to make some strawberry icy drinks and take the bike out if it's not raining. If it's raining, then watch out jillian michaels, I will be doing the last chance workout. My laptop is acting up, I think I need a new fan. I have to get my other one back that I loaned out in order to make sure I can get on here and log everything throughout the week & check in with people & their blogs. I'm slacking, I know!!! So Sorry!!
