today is weigh in day and I am now 214.5 pounds. I lost 4.6 pounds this week. woot!
I did not think I did that great this week, I only exercised once but I wrote down what I ate and dident eat anything particularly bad.
I'm back on track with my goal of being 200 or lower by new years. Happy me.
I know I was having a really hard time the last few weeks. thanks to everyone for all your words of encouragement, you really helped me keep things in perspective.
Have a Great Halloween !

Yesterday was a really nice day for me. I spent all day with my kids :-) I searched thru the closet and dressed Aiden up like a pirate. He kept running to the bathroom to look at himself and would laugh because I drew a little mustach and beard on him. we listened to spooky music while baking carrot cupcakes.
Yesterday afternoon we went out to a small halloween festival for kids under 12 at a local community center. Aiden got to play games and get candy and go thru a haunted house. There was hotdogs and chips and snow cones and popcorn there and I dident eat anything. I only let aiden have a hotdog because I dident want him to be full of junk and not want dinner.
we came home and I made a really yummy casserole with sweet potatoe, apple, turkey sausage, cheese, onions, salt, pepper, ginger and pie crust. (sounds a bit weird but sooooo good!) ... I knew aiden wouldent eat it so I took the extra pie crust and filled it with whole wheat pasta and cheese sauce, mixed with mashed sweet potatoes. MMMM macaroni and cheese mixed with sweet potatoes has an awesome taste! and the kids dont know the difference, I think I will make it like that from now on. .... We carved our pumpkin while dinner cooked. Lyra helped which was really cute. Then we put lyra to bed and Me, Andrew and Aiden ate dinner and a cupcake a peice while watching Old Halloween Micky Mouse cartoons. :-)
Im glad I got to do something for halloween with aiden. He wont be here this halloween because he goes to his biological fathers house this weekend :-( I have only ever got to go trick or treating with him once since he was born. It makes me kinda sad. In another two years He will be with me for halloween at least because it wont fall on a weekend in two years, So I can look forward to that.
Im taking lyra out trick-or-treating tomorow, that should be fun.
HAPPY HALLOWEEN EVERYONE!!!!

I havent really had my head on straight the last two weeks. I geuss I have just had my head wrapped around other things that I kinda pushed my health to the back burner. I know I cant do that.
I havent gained any but I havent lost any either. Im not saying I totaly gave up and went back to old habits because I dident. I still ate reasonable portions most days and reasonably healthy food most days, but I dident track what I ate, I dont know how many calories or points I ate and I only exercised maybe two or three times in the last two weeks.
My anniversary came around and I was doing alot of sewing because I was altering my wedding gown to wear to the ren faire. My other sister moved into our house so now we have 4 adults and two children living in a very small 3 bedroom 1 bathroom house. My sisters have been getting on my nerves too so there is a certain amount of stress Im feeling at the moment. To wrap all that up money is really tight so I havent had alot of food I like eating around... so I tend to want to eat double of the food I dont like to make up for the fact that I dont like it in the first place (if the makes any sense at all).
I went to the ren faire yesterday and I had a good time... I ate food that was not very good for me. I ate a bread bowl of broccoli cheese soup... I had 2 apple ciders at the faire.... I came home and ate 2 1/2 brauts and 3 cresent rolls and then had two more apple ciders with rum and buttershots.
It was a heavy eating day to end two weeks of not so good eating. I stepped on the scale this morning to find I had not lost or gained. Im ok with that.
I am off to a good start today. I exercised 40 minutes all ready, I ate a healthy breakfast, I already drank 3 glasses of water, and I took my vitamin.
I will reach my goal of 200 or under by new years! I am still pretty much on track to do it, I just need to step up my game and think about why I started this and finally finish what I started.
Im smaller, my pants fit better, I feel really good about me....... but Im still a fat girl, I still cant fit into the clothes I want to wear, I am still at a very unhealthy weight, Im still obease. I cant settle for mediocrity! I wont settle!
Im worth doing this.... I just need to get my head straight and realize it.
