3.6.... That is all I need to lose before I reach my goal weight for weight Watchers. After that I get to make life time and get to go to meetings for free. That will be really nice. 160 is my goal weight for weight Watchers but I plan to go lower.

I usually dont try to shoot for more than one or two pounds a week because anything more than that is pretty unrealistic especially at the weight I am at now but I would really like to shoot for a big number this week. I'm not going to be devastated if I don't reach it because I know I most likely won't but I figure it can't hurt of I give it 100% and I will maybe make my goal by the end of the month.

So I got up this morning and did my biggest loser workout video for the first time in like 3 months. I have really been avoiding getting back into them... It was challenging but not anywhere as bad as I was anticipating.

I planned out exactly what I am going to eat today ... Even working in some pumpkin ice-cream. I am really looking forward to that later on.

If anyone has not tried it you have to get some pumpkin ice cream by breyers. It's not light or anything but surprisingly it only has 120 calories per 1/2 cup serving.

I really hope I can stick to working out and stick to my meal plan

    That was my weight before I gained back of my stupity and I am aiming for that again. Months ago I was 172. Dang it. So once you get there it is not worth saying. It is only pounds it will come off. The last pounds off when you gain back is rough physically and mentally.
I loved that weight 160. Everyone said. I was 10 years younger and that is a feather in my cap being 68. Ha.ha
plus I could move and was more healthy in all things.

So keep up the good work. emoticon

Trying to feel better

Monday, October 11, 2010

well this past weigh in was a hell of a lot better than I thought it was going to be. I lost another 2 pounds bringing me down to 164! That number seems all wrong looking at it, like something foreign. I mean the last 20 pounds have really gone by in a flash and I was just getting use to 180. Not that I am complaining because the sooner I can get there the better.... I mean my goal weight at weight watchers is 160 pounds (even though I plan to go 10 - 15 pounds lower than that) so I am really excited to get to that goal and then in a few weeks not have to pay weight watchers membership fees anymore. that will be awesome.

I have been feeling really bad lately... depressed, unenergetic and horrible about me. I Think Its because I am having a bit of a problem with my self esteam. I know most people, expecially the people who still have alot to lose prob want to smack me... I know me back when I was 270 pounds would want to smack me right now.... but I have really been feeling bad about my body lately. I think its because I am now 160 pounds and back when I started all this, 160 looked alot different in my mind then it does in reality. I wish someone got you ready for the fact that once you loose all the weight, expecially if you started out reeeally big, like I did... that your body may not look the way you expect. I think I see myself alot different then most people though... I feel like I look really big when I know I am not as big as I see myself.

I am lucky in the fact that my loose skin is not horrible. I mean I have seen people who have flaps of belly skin that hang to mid thigh. I only have a few inches that hang over and I can still see my you know what, so Im really lucky because I had a very very large belly roll when I started and alot of back fat... my belly is pretty small now and my back fat is almost gone, I think it would be completley smooth if it werent for the loose skin and I expect in the next 15 pounds everything will get a lot smaller but everything is all loose and icky and it makes me feel really bad about myself, even when Im all dressed. I mean the truth is, if I did not have all this skin on my belly and back then I would prob be about 2 sizes smaller than I am. ::sigh::

Another thing is... the girls have shrunk even more.... or I guess I should say deflated. I can grab a whole hand full of loose skin on each breast... its horrible. I have gone from a small D cup to a B cup and the skin has pretty much stayed the same size... if that gives you any indication how bad it is. The sad part is, if I dident have the extra skin filling the cup up, I would be even smaller. Its crazy. .... I dont mind being this small really but the fact that I cant wear certain bras and they hang way down with no shape at all, really bothers me.

I dont want to feel this way about myself...I am really proud of everything I have accomplished and want to feel good about me. I am really trying to focus on the positives instead of the negitives but its still hard. I think buying some shapewear would do a world of good for my self esteam but unfortunatly I can afford to get anything right at this moment. Maybe in a few weeks though.

Once I make lifetime thats 40 dollars a month I can be buying clothing with. I really think some clothes that fit right and flatter the body I have would help out. No one feels good when they are wearing workout clothes all the time.... Which is what I wear most of the time. I dont have alot of clothing so thats usually what I end up in... my thought being "well Im going to be working out sometime today anyway". So I end up working out at night usually, taking a shower and putting workout clothes on again the next day... pulling my hair into the same loose pony tail and feeling generaly crappy about myself.

Something needs to change... I know my body will change more but the loose skin situation is not going to. I need to just deal with it and find other ways to make myself feel good. I think Im going to start wearing make up... Im almost 29 and have never really bothered much with it, but I am just feeling like I am starting to show my age.... as horrible as that is. I mean I am only 29 and I feel compleatly haggard most days. :-( I need to spend a little less time worrying about everyone else and spend a few extra minutes a day making myself feel beautiful... Im going to seriously crawl in a hole and cry if I dont,.... I feel that bad most days.

So my focuses this week are working on my self esteam... spending some extra time making myself look good, just for my own bennifit... even if I am just spending the day inside with my 1 year old and no one eles will see me. Eating a little lighter because I have been feeling really bogged down lately and generaly unenergetic and drinking lots of water. I still want to lose some weight this week but my main focus is going to be feeling better.

I hope everyone has an awesome week.

~ Jess

    I love what MVISGAK said, so I just want to say "DITTO!!!" to everything she said. The alternative is NOT an option. I know I got real depressed just like you after a significant weight loss 15 years ago-- yep it was the saggy skin that got me... I said, to heck with it if I look this bad after losing weight. I put on 50 lbs and was miserable. WISH I had someone to tell me the skin will tighten up if you stick with it! so now, at 50, I'm doing it again. This time I'm focused. I wonder if my skin will tighten up at all at my age -- but you know, it doesn't matter. Skin is just skin. I feel Sooo much better IN my body even if that body isn't and will never be "perfect". This 'ol body is darn useful now! and I like that.

You are so gorgeous and brave. Love your life NOW. Not just when you meet your body goal. This day is yours! use it up -- wring it of everything it has to offer. HUGS to YOU!

    Definitely start doing little things to make yourself feel beautiful - because you are! I'm the same way - hair in a pony tail all day, sweats if I'm home, little to no makeup, etc. But, I just got my hair cut, and the stylist dried and straightened it just for fun. And man, I felt like a whole new me! It was crazy. I would never think to spend that kind of time on myself, but now that I know how good something like that made me feel I want to try doing it myself some day.

So, something little, like makeup or styling your hair differently might make a bigger difference in your self-esteem and opinion of yourself than you realize now.

Go for it!!

    like everyone else said, skin takes up to 2 years of maintenance to firm up. shape wear will definitely help you feel sexier. you look rockin, though! take care of yourself a bit more (like you did with the makeup) and it will start to sink in more and more. gaining and losing didn't happen over night and neither will renovating your self esteem

  You know what's really funny. I just read your main page and looked at the pictures of your progress and I was feeling reassured that the skin would shrink for me like it did for you. I have a lot to lose and I was worried about it.

I think you look great! You are an inspiration to me. Thanks for blogging!

    You have come SO far. I have read that it takes up to a year after you maintain your goal weight for the skin to shrink back to normal. I have some too, but I'm older and don't think it will go away as easily for me. Add some strength training and keep hydrated and moisturized. All will help with the skin.

You are a beautiful woman, inside and out. Start seeing yourself that way. =)

Look how far you've come girl - for goodness sakes - I know there's little parts of you that you'd love to change or not have there at all, but now imagine - you were practically carrying around a whole nother person inside you girl! You were at 270 and now 164?! Girl - I would be friggin exstatic to weigh 165 - or 170 even!! lol - OK - here's the deal - we play lotto ! I win, I pay for your tucks and lifts - you win - you pay for mine. How's that??

Really though - I don't know anyone that could have accomplished what you have - weight watchers or SP or whatever - and you keep me believing that although it's taking a freaking eternity, I can also get to where I want to be. As far as the stretch marks or loose skin go, just consider it a reminder of where you DON'T want to end up again - and lovely reminders of your babies that grew inside you. That's the only thing that helps me when I'm feeling crummy about my "Bob" - the tum tum.

I am so proud and amazed at you, my friend! Look at you now!

Look in the mirror - yes, put on a bit of makeup - even when I feel like total crappola, it has a wonderful way of making you look GREAT! And you know what they say - when you look great, you FEEL great - nobody else knows about the skin - just you. And Victoria's Secret makes a fabu wonderbra that will have the girls up where they belong and you will feel good about you. And I say, there's nothing wrong with that!

    Thanks for all your comments... I love my spark friends. I did not know about skin firming up after maintenance so that gives me some hope. I'm feeling pretty good right now though, I exercised and then showered and put on some make-up. It's amazing what just that little bit does to make you feel good.

Thanks again guys... Have a really great day!

    Jess, love, you have accomplished SO MUCH and I want nothing more than for you to feel a great sense of pride and happiness in knowing that. That being said, I totally understand how you are feeling. I've been there. Now that being said, I can tell you that by doing two things on a daily basis, you WILL feel a million times better about yourself. First thing - start your day with positive thoughts and self-talk. Tell yourself at least 2 to 3 positive, uplifing, complimentary things about YOU. Focus on the good. Focus on the beautiful. And the second thing - primp. Seriously. Put a little make-up on. It doesn't have to be much...a little blush, a coat of lip-gloss and some mascara to start. I'm telling you, just mascara alone makes a HUGE difference in how you look. It makes the eyes pop. And the lip gloss - makes you feel girly. :)

Now, I lost 155+ pounds...with 125 pounds of that being lost in about 14 months (via Weight Watchers)...and I had spent 10ish years at 300 pounds, and went over 320 with my 2nd pregnancy, so if you want to talk about saggy skin, I had it. That being said, it does get better as time goes on. Down the road, as you continue to work out and eat healthily, the skin will firm up. Unfortunately you'll never have skin like a 15 year-old who's always been 120 pounds. Period. Not gonna happen, so let it go. HOWEVER, you will get to the point where you put on an outfit and feel beautiful and you not only look great, but you KNOW you look great! :) The key to feeling as though you look great is to be wearing clothing that MAKES you feel great.

You will get there...and until then you just need to fake it till you make it! :) Smile, stand tall, walk with pride, be kind to yourself, be complimentary to yourself, immediately stop the negative self talk and replace it with a positive comment about your accomplishments and your appearance. It takes practice, but trust me when I say that if you do that, EVERYTHING will change - for the better!!

Have a GREAT day. You look amazing. You have accomplished a ton. You should be feeling proud and happy. BE PROUD and HAPPY!!

    I am really sorry that you are not feeling as awesome as you are looking. No one is perfect. Everyone has some thing(s) they hate about themselves.

You MUST remember that you are a bajillion times more beautiful, radiant, lovely, condfident, (insert adjective here) than you were at 300 pounds. Every time that nasty little doubt creeps in, shine the light of truth and progress on it.

You have come a long way baby.

    I was reading your blog and thinking that at 29 there is still time for your skin to shrink back, I remember reading somewhere on here that the body can take a year or more to have finished "adjusting" its self after you have reached your maintenence weight.
In the meantime may I suggest a good body cream daily and doing toning exercises.

It's a bit trite but they say beauty comes from within, I think what they mean is you have to learn to love yourself.

    Oh Jess, I relate to so much of what you are going through. I've tried to be extra conscious of the mental part of this journey, not just the physical, because while it IS about the physical, it's not what ultimately takes you down.

What you have accomplished is amazing. I have already made peace with the fact that I am going to need to get plastic surgery for both of the issues you mentioned... not because I am 100% sure I'll NEED them, but I'm 100% sure I WANT them. I still have a long way to go, but you are an inspiration because you are there!

Take it a day at a time friend. You are beautiful.

Thursday 10/7 Food Blog & Update

Thursday, October 07, 2010

I had a rough day yesterday... well my whole week has been hard actually. I used up all my weekly points this past weekend and so I was left with a negitive amount of weekly points that I had to try and make up for by exercising. Its been hard because I only have 22 points per day to eat and I find it hard to stick to that. I usually eat about 4 or 5 points over that each day and use my weekly points for it. I cant do that this week because I dont have any weekly points left. do you see my delima?

So here I am, 2nd day of That time of the month, Im feeling hungry and sad and crappy. I feel like crawling into bed and crying. To make matters worse we spent waaay more money than we planned last weekend so I had to cut back my shopping list alot. We normaly spend 150 dollars a week at the grocery store and this week we spent $65. Was not pretty. So Im having to scrape together every bit of creativity I have to make my meals appealing. Its hard.

So yesterday I did alot of nibbling. I was trying really hard not to nibble but I did ... Im really hoping that this week is not horrible and I gain 5 pounds. I am so scared of that.


Breakfast - 3/4 cup honey graham Ohs, 1/4 cup mini wheats, 1/2 cup skim milk, 1/2 banana

Snack - 1 1/2 servings kettle cooked chips

Lunch - 1 flatout wrap w/ 1 morning star chicken patty, lettuce, 1 tbls light ranch..... 1/2 stuffed bell pepper

(did not get a picture)

Dinner - baked whole wheat macaroni and cheese w/ light hot dogs, ketcup, 1/2 baked sweet potato, peas & carrot salad (shredded carrots mixed w/ raisins and light mayo)
This meal I find to be kinda odd but I am just trying to use up things I have on hand right now. lol.

bad day for food blogging... I dident take pictures of hardly anything. I went over my points yesterday by 3 and thats just the stuff I tracked. I know for a fact I was prob at least 7 points over with the other nibbles I had here and there.

Im reeeeally looking forward to saturday. Even if I gain weight, at least my points reset.

    Sometimes we have to do what we have to do, but next time don't let the emotions dictate how you react to the situation. Count your blessings that you had $65.00 to spend. There are people who don't have a home and food except for a charity shelter. Your meals were creative and beautiful. You can do it, even though it is hard. Count your blessings and look at it from a positive perspective. Hugs to you for trying

    Make sure you drink lots of water the next couple of days and don't fret a gain - if it happens, it's only temporary. If you have time to get in some extra exercise sessions, go for it. They'll not only help you physically, but they'll help you mentally, which sounds like something you could use right now. LOL - not that your mental or anything. LOL! I mean, that time of the month is wraught full of emotions and irrational thinking, so anything we can to do make it better is great, right?

And remember - everything that happens in our lives are opportunities for us to live an learn. Take last weekend for example - you not only spent too much money, but too many points, and now this week you're cutting back on both to make it work. But the point is that YOU ARE MAKING IT WORK! You should feel very proud! It's much easier to just spend what you don't have instead of cutting back and to eat whatever you want instead of cutting back. YOU'RE ROCKIN' IT!! :)

I hope you have a GREAT day. And remember, Saturday is just a couple days away - you can hold out for a couple days with regard to overeating. Be strong. Drink lots of water. Keep yourself occupied. And keep tracking - even if you go over on your Points!

Thursday Food Blog & updates

Friday, October 01, 2010

First off, I got in 30 minutes of walking yesterday morning after I dropped Aiden off at the bus stop. There is not a good place to walk on my street since there is no sidewalks and the road is very busy.... but there is a rather large church accross the street from my house which has a parking lot that extends the whole way around it.... so I walked the perimeter of the parking lot for 30 minutes, it was well lit, away from the road and the parking lot has servalence cameras... so that gives someone a little less motivation to try and kill me and throw me in a ditch somewhere. ..... (yes I think about that when Im walking... even though the crime rate is not high here I am alway cautious, expecially before the sun has come up)

I felt good afterwards though.

For breakfast I had an egg white and sausage english muffin and a large orange

Lunch time I had a lean cuisine steam bag meal.... tastes good, good amount of food and only 5 points per bag...... and a small salad

I had a glass of root beer

For dinner I had tomato, chicken and cheese frittata w/ a baked sweet potato & some steamed asparagus.






Cup sugar free apple cider

cup sugar free hot cocoa & fat free popcorn

.... kinda stopped tracking yesterday so not quite sure how much this was... pretty sure i was not over though.


took a pic of my outside fall decore if anyone was interested in seeing


I bought these pants 10 years ago at a thrift store when I was 300 lbs. I have talked about them up here before. I have almost gotten rid of them sevral times because deep down I knew that I would never be small enough to wear them... It just was not possible.
Well guess what... I was wrong! I put them on this morning and they fit! I could stand to lose a half inch or so in my thighs but other than that they fit perfectly. They arent really my style anymore, they are like a punk rock type plaid pant but Im gonna wear the hell out of them, just because I can!
It makes me a little sad to know that I almost got rid of them because I dident beleive in myself enough to know I could do this. I guess that is the difference between being ready to do this and not.
I had that glimmer of hope in there somewhere though, or I would not have saved them for this long.

The bigger of the two pair is a size 22... When I started I could not fit size 22 anymore, I was squeezing my big butt into a size 3X maternity pants because I could not find jeans that would fit me.... I suppose I was around a size 26... so my before size was actually much bigger.... :-( ... I got rid of the 3x maternity pants because its hard to find maternity clothes at that size and I knew someone else would most likely really appreciate them.


Have a great friday... Im going to be rockin my size 12 skinny pants today so It will be a good day for me.

I have been eating the shrimp scampi and another shrimp one. I don't like your page lol I love candy corn and I am refraining from buying or eating any because I will eat the whole bag!

woke up yesterday and went out walking for 30 minutes at the park with my sister.... wow its so nice right now for morning exercise outside.

I came home and put on a pot of coffee and then desided to weigh in on the wii fit since my sister was weighing in. She unfortuatly ended up gaining some weight :-( but I lost 2lbs since I had weighed in last which brought me to a healthy BMI... a major milestone. Its not official until I see the weight at weight watchers on that scale but It was an awesome thing to see.

Breakfast was an egg white english muffin with a turkey sausage patty and ketchup and 1/2 a cup of coffee with splenda (I have been avoiding coffee creamer because it adds 1 point which I think I could use in other places)

For lunch I had some leftover egg plant lasagna and a small salad

I desided not to have a snack yesterday afternoon because I knew I wanted to eat a snack later that night when I watched The Biggest Loser. So I just had a glass of diet root beer.

Dinner I made fish tacos.... I just took a parmesan herb frozen tillapia fillet and baked it and cut it up and put it in crunchy taco shells. With that I had corn and uncle bens ready rice spanish rice. It was all really good.

After dinner I played around with the kids

Then I got them in bed half and hour early so I had time to make some pumpkin fluff and watch the biggest loser. MMMM tastes just like pumpkin pie and is only 2 points a serving.

PUMPKIN FLUFF - 6 servings - 2 points each


1 box sugar free fat free vanilla pudding mix
2 cups fat free milk
1/2 can pumpkin
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
8oz tub fat free cool whip

wisk together pudding mix and milk following package directions. Mix in pumpkin. Fold in 2/3 cool whip.... save other 1/3 to top each serving with a dollop.



Daily Points Eaten - 26
Weekly Points Used - 4
Weekly Points Remaining - 14.5
