It don't count if you don't write it down!

Saturday, September 12, 2009

This past week has been really rough and I did gain a little bit of weight, around 2 pounds or so. Im not sure the exact number because I dident write my weight down on my chart to track it. I really dont want to count it because I dident get a fair chance this week because of being sick. If I write it down it will just make me sad anyway. I have convenently got into a mind set where if I dont write my weight down on the chart then it dosent count. I am still under 225 as far as I am concerned untill I write it on the chart.

Well I got some antibiotics from the doctor. She thinks I got a virus and then it turned into a bac infection. :-( ..... I also got a prescription for some really good cough syrup with codine in it but the doctor forgot to sign it and they cant fill perscriptions like codine with out the signture. :-( office is closed till monday so Im out of luck with that. Hopefully the antibiotics will have me feeling 100% by monday though.

As it stands I fell crap loads better today than yesterday so hopefully I will only have to deal with this a little while longer.

Today is Saturday and I have hit my reset button, Im ready to get back on track, track what I eat and start up my exercise again.




Sick :-(

Friday, September 11, 2009

well last sunday I started getting a soar throat and pretty much knew I was getting sick. I was right and since then I have felt worse and worse and now its moved from my head down into my cheast. :-(

This has really thrown me off this week because I havent felt like writing down my food so I have done really bad with that, I have not been paying attention to how much I eat so I am pretty sure I am going to gain weight this week.

To add to everything I havent been exercising. I felt a little better a few days ago so I tried to do 20 minutes on the elliptical. That did not work out so well because I really could not breath very well. I have desided that I will not try that again till after Im feeling better.

I have a doctors appt. this afternoon so hopefully they can give me something to knock this sh*t out. I feel like I have that little green mucus guy from the commericals in my cheast. Its not very pleasant.

I havent been sick in more than 2 years so I geuss I had a pretty good run. All I can say is, I hope I do better next week.

Keeping things in perspective

Friday, August 28, 2009

My sister and I were talking about weight loss last night. She was still a bit discouraged because she gained 0.2 last week and dident think she was going to lose any this week. I told her that she needs to not worry so much about week 1 and week 2 and think about week 30. She asked me how I have stayed so motivated after almost 8 months of doing this and I told her she just needs to not think so much and just keep doing what she needs to be doing. Thinking about it really does get you in trouble because you get obsessed with the number on the scale. You just need to take it one day at a time and try not to focus on where you are now but rather where you are going or how far you have come.

What has really helped me to stay on track is my weight goal chart. (www.fitday.com) I set a goal of 200 pounds by the end of the year and even if I go up a little one week I am usually still within where I need to be to reach that goal. It really puts things into perspective so you can stop focusing on the short term and focus on the big picture.

    I couldn't agree more. When I first started, I just took it one day at a time. I focused on what was going on, but wouldn't put too much thought into it. Thinking is a great thing, but thinking too much will get ya every time!

Not feeling so hot about this week

Tuesday, August 25, 2009

We went out to olive garden on saturday and even though me and my husband split a meal I have been feeling extreamly guilty about this whole week. I ate over my points on saturday but I should be able to recover.

I just feel like Im in a funk this week... I feel like Im not eating the right way or exercising enough and just have a general run downed and blah feeling surrounding me.

I know after I weigh in on saturday then I will be able to push my reset button and feel better about the upcomming week, Im just tryign to stay focused and survive this week without making bad desisions.


We went to my inlaws house this weekend and my husbands parents and grandparents went on and on about how great me and my husband look. Its really been the first that anyone has made a fuss about my weight loss. My husband has lost around 70 pounds so they have seen a difference in him a bit sooner than me, but this time they noticed me too.

It felt really good but after the next day with them still doing it .... it became a bit annoying. lol. I geuss I cant complain


well I did pretty good today, I watched TV and worked out on the elliptical for an hour. Im feeling pretty hungry now so Im going to go get a snack.


A great week! 46.1 pounds total loss!

Saturday, August 22, 2009

well I have totally made up this week for my gaining the past two weeks. I am currently down to 226.9 pounds! That's a total of 46.1 pounds this year. wow 226 seems low. I look at it and it doesn't feel real... I still feel like I'm 250 for some reason even though I am noticeably alot smaller now.

I am really elated, When I look in the mirror what I see makes me happy. Its really a awesome feeling when you start to like what you see in the mirror.... when if you were told today that you would look exactly how you do now, forever it wouldn't be that bad. You see I have always wanted a smooth silloete... I could be a size 20 as long as everything was smooth all the way down and in proportion. I despise rolls but I have always had problems with looking like a pack of rolls. I'm really not that bad now. My sides which use to be boobs, roll, top tummy roll, bottom tummy roll and then hips is now almost smooth... there is a little puckering here and there but for the majority its one long line. I like that.

Its funny because now that I am smaller, I can lose 5 pounds and see a change, where before it would take at least 15 to see any new changes in my body. Its exciting and really pushes me to not eat that second helping or get up on that elliptical and do just 20 more minutes.

I'm so happy.

Me and my sister had a bet going to see who could lose the most weight this week. she weighs like 270 pounds and I have really been trying to motivate her to be motivated to change. She says she's going to do better each week but then eats bad stuff or eats too much or doesn't exercise and then gets really sad when she doesn't lose. I bet her 5 dollars that I could lose more weight than her at the beginning of the week and we put both 5 dollar bills in a jar with our weights written down.

She has worked so hard this week. She's exercised almost every day and been really good about writing down her food. It almost makes me sad that I lost 4 pounds this week because I know its prob gonna be hard to her to compete. I don't think she lost that much ..... I hope she did though, I hope she beats me so she can continue her motivation. I want her to be happy and healthy, and know how great it feels to lose weight and accomplish something that once seemed impossible.

I wish it was as easy as putting 5 bucks in a jar to motivate the rest of my family to live healthier lifestyles. I guess you cant change someone who doesn't really want to change themselves though.

Here is to another great week!!!

    Well done, Jessica. Keep up the good work and continue to motivate everyone, especially your sister. Is she a Spark person? If not, maybe that is what she needs - the site is so helpful and makes you want to succeed. Logging everything you do makes you so aware of what you are doing to your body and encourages you to do better - as you have proved!
