Below 300 l bs.

Wednesday, January 09, 2013

In September of 2009 I went over the 300 lb mark. I have been as high as 326, maybe even higher but didn't get on the scale. I joined a 12 wk. holiday wellness challenge at work and set my goal for 16 lbs, since I weighed in at 315.2. Today was weigh-in and I weighed 299.0. I cried. For the first time in a very long time, I feel like I can do this. My goal is to get to 250 lbs and to maintain that. My Dr told me that is a great weight for me. When I was 325 lbs it did not seem doable. When I decided to take in 5% increments it seemed a little easier. Now that I have met that 1st goal it seems very doable. Now instead of looking at needing to lose 75 lbs, I now can look at needing to lose 49 lbs. I haven't felt this hopeful and happy in a very long time. Sparkpeople and Zeal Wellness Drink has given me the ability to do this.

    Congrats! I remember that milestone feeling FANTASTIC! You can do this! I get overwhelmed by the big numbers also. I break it up into smaller goals that feel much more doable... and they are! You've got this.

    That's fantastic!!! You can do it, especially when you break it up into small goals like that. I know that looking at a major weight loss, the numbers are daunting. Making it in steps is the best way to stay focused and on track.

    Congrats Kim!! Good for you. Breaking through that number barrier is a very emotional thing. Just know this, you are capable of doing this, and you WILL do this. One step at a time, one lb at a time. You may well even surprise yourself.

    Fabulous! I hope you are extremely proud of yourself, as you should be. I hope you are picking out another interim goal before you achieve your final goal. It worked so well for you over the 12 week program, it sounds like this is a good way for you to go. Good luck on your continued journey.

Gained 1.2 lbs this week

Wednesday, January 02, 2013

I am pretty sure I am not going to make my goal that I set in our Holiday Wellness Challenge at work. I would have to drop 7 lbs this week. Darn it, but I am not throwing in the towel for sure. I couldn't believe I gained a lb when I have been eating less and using Zeal Weight Management Products to help me. Of course I did eat and ENTIrE 1/2 gallon of French Silk ice cream saturday and sunday. emoticon
Here I go, back in the saddle again.....

    I feel MUCH better today! I tracked everything yesterday and stayed in calorie and nutrition range. Woo hoo. And today I am adding working out at the Wellness Center after work.

Thanks for the support!

    I had a little gain also. I am sure mostly water weight. Mine and yours both will be gone in no time!

    Thanks MaryAnn. I really like that we had this Holiday Wellness Challenge. Pretty sure the point was to keep us from gaining. I know I have neer lost during the holidays before so I reckon I will go ahead and run with this deal.

I admire how you keep up with folks on here and keep up with your fitness minutes.

    I think you did very well, considering the season we just came through. I always seem to gain the "Santa 7" over this time of year, but this year I only managed the "Santa 5." These pounds that come on quickly, usually disappear just as quick. All the best on your challenge and the New Year.

Ice Cream Cake

Monday, December 31, 2012

Oh how I love Ice cream and then Ice cream cake from Dairy Queen, holy moly. I was at a little going away party and ate very good for the lunch part. Then I saw the cake. I had a small peice. Then I look it up on for my tracker. Well I am glad I enjoyed it very slowly and that I only ate one peice. That is HONESTLY a big change in my part!

all or nothing has to change

Thursday, February 09, 2012

I am either all in or all out. I have lived my life this way and it has not served me well. I went to a convention for 3 days and got off track again and have been on a carbohydrate binge. I am jusmping back in whole heartedly mostly because I like how i feel when i do this.

Ugghh Saturday was a disaster!

Sunday, January 29, 2012

A friend invited me to go eat at our favorite restuarant that had been damaged in the Joplin tornado and had just reopened and I went. I ate everything that I loved on the dang buffet. Then continued to eat uncontrollably all day long. I was emotinally eating and feel sick today. But I am grateful it was only one day and that I am right back on track today. One day won't kill me and I didn't like the way that I felt, obsessing over food for the entire day. Today I am tracking and planning and feel empowered again. I may even exercise!

    Slipups happen. Just as life happens. The important thing is what you do after that. Obsessing about it is only counter productive. Taking control right away is the best cure. You can do this.
