Where is waldo? more like where has Madamkisha been.

Wednesday, February 22, 2012

I have been MIA for a minute now but don't think for one minute that I forgot about my sparkfriends. I would say I dropped off the map back in November of last year around my birthday. I went to Vegas and found out that not everything that happens in Vegas stays in Vegas ahhh expecting my first little one August 15, 2012. I am very excited emoticon but in some ways it's bitter sweet because I feel like I was just on the verge of hitting my goals but I am definitely willing to scarfice my weight loss goals for a little while for the miracle of life. So lately I've been in the baby communities rather than on spark just trying to be more focus on a new life changing goal that I knew would come together as soon as I was healthy and my body was ready to become a mommy. I haven't totally forgot about my healthy life style I still exercise and try to eat right although I do seem to let my cravings win more often than not. I'm 4 months and I have gained a few more pounds than I've wanted too but it is my goal to not let my weight get too outrageous so that I'm so far away from where I left off and where I want to be. So when you ask where is madamkisha she is taking time to focus on a new journey in her life motherhood. Oh but trust me as soon as baby is here and it's all clear I will be back and more ready than ever to reach my goals. Until then emoticon s wishing you the best at all your endeavors!! emoticon

How fitting

Thursday, September 29, 2011

How fitting that I would blogg today on the anniversary of my first spark blog. Here's what I said......

"So today is my first blog entry of my weight loss story hopefully a success story. I have struggle with my weight most of my life and I feel it has held me back from living up to my full potential. Sure I'm smart, I'm pretty, but I'm a big girl. I'm 27 years old and recently the pressure to be thinner has hit me hard. Especially since I moved to Atlanta a year and a half ago which is no place for overweight people . So recently my job started a biggest loser weight loss contest so over a 6 month period the person who loses the highest percentage of their body weight has a chance to win 3,000. The contest started as of June 1, 2009 and so far I've shed 15 pounds but I'm still not in the top 10 but I hope to continue to work my way up. My goals is to be more fit and healthier and it wouldn't hurt to be able to shop at any store in the mall. I currently weigh 253 and my goal is 175 to start. That's 78 pounds wow that's alot and I know it's not going to be easy but it's something that I have to do. Well this is the start of my journey I have a long way to go. "

So although I have not reached my goal I have made awesome progess shedding over 70lbs and maintaining the weight loss for about a year. Although I didnt win the biggest loser contest at work it really motivated me to be where i am today. So again it's back to the basics for me so I thought I'd reminisce
back to where I started.

Day by dayÖ.

Thursday, September 29, 2011

So lately I have been struggling to stay consistent in my journey. I mean I havenít completely fallen off the wagon I still exercise 3-4 times a week but my eating is so inconsistent. Iím just maintaining my weight loss instead of losing weight. I feel like I loss motivation, that drive that I had in the beginning when my heart was really in it and nothing would stop me from going to the gym or temp me to eat something I knew I shouldnít. Itís like I know what to do but Iím having a hard time doing what I need too. I havenít lost the motivation to exercise I feel like I could and should be doing more...... My problem now is being consistent and stepping my game up to move forward from this plateau. Itís like some days Iím so motivated too break out of the slump and others days Iím not soÖ.. I got to find my way back. I feel like I lost sight of my goals when the compliments and comments started when I shared my journey with people who donít understand the struggle. So here I am at a stand still for months so where do I find that motivation to keep going. With my big 30th B-day quickly approaching Iím starting to reevaluate a lot of things in my life and my goals and where I want to be in the future. I know it all begins with my health, your health truly is your wealth and I want to live a long healthy life. So again itís back to the basics of what I know will get me where I want to be tracking, cleaning eat, and exercise and Iím not going to let the success of how far Iíve to be my motivation because I get too comfortable I need to focus on where I want too be not so much how long it will take me to get there. So this blog has help me to put things in to perspective I guess thatís why I should do it more often. So for now as for me Iím back to the basics taking it day by dayÖ.

    I understand. It's hard breaking through the plateau times. I like to try a new workout, change something in my schedule (the times i work out, eat, snack, etc), eat something different (try some new foods for lunch or snacks)...just change something. It might propel you forward.

Wow I didnt realize it's been this long......

Tuesday, July 19, 2011

Wow I didnt realize it's been this long since I've been on SP. I feel like I totally abondoned my emoticon s and I really miss the encouragment from others with the same struggles. So last year was really my year I lost a total of 75lbs and I'm not even sure how many inches leaving me at 195lbs where I have been stuck for the last 6 months emoticon. It's not that I fell off the wagon I just keep my wagon moving at the same pace I didnt continue to make progress to push myself pass my new found fitness level. So for the last six months I have just been complacent and enjoying not being the fat unhealthy person I was before but not really moving toward being the fit healthy person I know I can be. I continued to go to the gym 4-5 days a week and eat healthy 80% of the time but my biggest issue as it has always been is not tracking my food and exercise consistently so I can make sure I am pushing towards my goals instead being stuck. I guess the first step to change is recognizing and admitting the flaws in order to work on improving them and one of my biggest mistakes was being away from SP so long I mean emoticon and it has helped m,e so much how dare me get all confident thinking I had this on my own and could now do it without support. I now realize that you need support in every stage of this journey and more importantly have to share and help others in their journey as others here have done for me. I have been gone for too long I know it's time I bring it back in full force. SO look to hear from me soon as to how I plan to break through this plateau. I'm back!!!!!!!

Itís been too longÖ.

Monday, October 18, 2010

Itís been too long since Iíve last blogged and shared my struggles and success. Despite my lack of participation on SP lately I have really been hanging in there and trying to stay focused on my goals. Since I last blogged I am so close to onehundredland I can taste it, I walk/ran the US 10K Classic on Labor Day in 90mins and have lost close to 70lbs total. I am still exercising and eating right however here lately Iím starting to feel a little complacent with my workout routine and eating. I have attempted to take it too the next level however seem to fall short. Itís not because I donít know what I need too or should be doing but I feel Iím basking in my achievements rather than pressing forward toward the finish line. Yes losing 60lbs, staying committed to the gym since 1.9.10, and completing my first 10K in 90mins are all great achievements but Iíve learned that I am capable of such much more. I just have to get my beginners motivation back and focus on the foundation of weigh loss success tracking my food and exercise and holding myself accountable for my actions. For the last few weeks I have been lingering between 204-207lbs and I just want to be in onehundredland already geeesh! So itís back to the basics tracking my food and exercising and lending and receiving the support of my SP friends emoticon. Itís b een way to longÖÖ..

    Congrats on the 10k!! You are determined and motivated. You can hit 100 ville. Maybe you need a different routine or exercise to shake up things. I will be looking forward to your progress.
