Well, I didn't do too well last night - I had too many (homemade) nachos - at least it was fresh salsa! I know I over did it with the cheese and the chips which has lead to the 1 lb gain today - and that time.
I HAVE done something right already today. I got my cup full of ice before I went to bed and had about 8 oz of water while I was getting ready for work! If I can at least keep this up on work days, it will help.
Not sure what the plan will be for tonight with hubby. I bet anything we'll end up with the neighbors. I'm waiting for hubby to ask - "any new year's resolutions?". I can't tell him that one is to lose weight or he'll hound me - he doesn't mean to, he's just trying to help. But the support doesn't really help when it comes from someone who can eat anything he wants and doesn't understand that it's hard to lose weight.
Sparkers - you are my support and I thank you for it.

OK, so I changed my weight goal date to our wedding anniversary. It would be nice to be at the weight that the hubby fell for me. I realize that there is no way I will get to 130 by March - that would just be unsafe. So, I will figure out what I want to be at by March and shoot for it.
I still need to work on my goals for 2009 - self, house stuff, couple stuff, etc.
I felt like I did well yesterday. I did go over the calorie intake - damn those leftover Christmas cookies! But I am down 1 pound today - I know it's because I got the water in yesterday.

3:50 p.m. -
Ok, so far so good today.
I actually brushed my teeth after lunch and I think it's helping. I'm hungry, BUT don't feel like eating because of my teeth feel clean. So, I'm downing the water and trying to wait to dinner.
Now, what to have for dinner - it doesn't help that I'm really hungry!

Today is going to be slow at work, so I'm going to work on making my plans/goals for 2009. I REALLY want to get moving on this weight loss. I'm not sure if I'll make my goal of 130 by March (I know - no way will I make it), but any weight I do lose by my birthday will be an accomplishment. I can do this.
Yesterday at my hubby's mom's house, we found out that his sister and brother-in-law have been going to the gym quite a bit and they showed us pictures of the biceps while they were working out. Now, hubby's sister is skinny as it is, so now she is toned and has definition. She is lucky that her hubby is into working out also. My hubby, on the other hand, feels like people are watching him when he's in the gym and tries to eat right and will go in spurts. He does not work out at all. Our exercise is walking Pups. Anyway, I'm saying this because I cannot depend on him for support when it comes to working out.
We have a treadmill in our basement and I used it up until the time we got Pups. Hubby would use it sparingly.
I don't know if this would be wrong or not (input is welcomed) - I was thinking of using the visitor passes at different gyms just to participate in some classes. I used to love taking step and aerobic classes. I think because of the music. I was also thinking about looking into Fitness Together where it is one on one with a trainer to get the weight training in.
I definitely need the weight training. For about the last 2 weeks or so, my hip has been hurting me and I know it's because of my posture when I'm sitting. I'm leaning forward and I shouldn't. I need to strengthen my legs to get rid of the tendonitis in the one leg and the baker's cyst in the other. My left arm has been bothering me too. It hurts just to lift it. That worries me because my aunt's tendons snapped in both arms.
Here I am not even 40 and I have all these aches and pains. Not good.

So, after today, the food should be winding down. Hubby and I had our Christmas Eve dinner last night, today will be Chinese food and then probably more food when we visit his mom this afternoon. After that - it should be the end of the temptation and overeating. We do have some leftovers here at home, but I should be fine with the limiting.
I have been thinking this for the last week - get through Christmas and that should be it - time to get serious and buckle down. This week alone, people have said they have noticed I have lost weight. That just makes me feel so good!
Today, I received an inspiration for my goal. What better inspiration than pictures from a former crush - not a boyfriend, but a crush. To see his 2 kids and very pretty and skinny wife (even though I am happily married), makes you wonder- what could have been/where would I be if it did happen. Would I want him to see me in this shape?
So, here's to the new inspiration, putting the holidays behind me and getting as close to my goal by March.
So I showed my hubby the crush's e-mail/christmas card. What a reminder of why I married him - back to reality - "Is he trying to get his friends back since he's not famous anymore?" "He's just showing off his family" Then hubby said - "Sorry - that was nice that he remembered us."
Hubby just brought me back to reality. Hubby always keeps me grounded. Hubby actually liked Crush the most out of the band because Crush was the nicest and most down to earth. And yes, Crush was in a band that was famous in the early 90's and I used to hang out with them (friends only, no groupie stuff) before and after hubby came into my life. Hubby was also a fan of the band (before and after we got together).
Anyway, back to reality that I have a great hubby and a great life. Hubby loves me no matter what.
