Trying to get it right

Sunday, February 22, 2009

Here is my official before pictures for 2009, weighing in at somewhere between 228 to 226lbs. I have been fighting the same 2 pounds all year. This was taken last night at my SIL's b-day party.

My goal is to weigh at least 175 by the end of the year, which is what I weighed when I graduated high school. I was considered fine back then, not to fat, not to skinny. That would leave me still needing to lose 30lbs to be at my ideal weight. I don't know that I want to get down to 130, maybe 140ish we will see.


Measure, Measure,Measure!

Tuesday, July 22, 2008

I have not been losing the way I would like to…so starting tomorrow I will measure everything that I eat. If I can’t count it I can’t eat it. I will measure everything that goes into my mouth for the next week. I have been measuring pretty much everything but my meats. I have a scale so there is really no reason for me guesstimating on them. The only excuse I have is just flat out being lazy. It really makes no sense, I am taking the time to measure my veggies and my carbs so why wouldn’t I measure my meats, pure laziness plain and simple. No more eating out and guessing on what the serving size is either. I will pack my lunch and only eat what I am certain about the calories on. I have been half assing and getting half ass results no ones fault but my own.

    I agree to take this challenge with you as well. I also have a scale, but always "eyeball" what i think a 4oz piece of meat is. Haha and who am I to guess such things. Good luck, hopefully we can make it happen this week!!

DH broke my liquid measuring cup about a week ago. I have been measuring things with one of my daugher's bottles until I can get to the store to buy a new one. emoticon My mother always said where there is a will there is a way. So I am working with what I got. emoticon

    This is too funny. I feel you though. At least you measuring still instead of say oh well and guess-o-mating!

    I just love your black betty background. I might have to borrow that one (smile). I've heard that saying many times myself. One thing about women we know how to make things work

Fighting My Way 2 Onederland By 12/30/08

Saturday, June 28, 2008

I have been thinking and we have 6 months left in the year. I am going to set a short term goal to reach onederland by 12/30/08. I weigh in on Tuesdays and this is the last Tuesday of the year. I believe I can lose 36 pounds by the end of the year. That would put me at 196 lbs and also get me to my second 10% goal.
