here i am down another .6. my weight is now 140.6 maybe the plateau is over. next week will tell. 15 pounds lost here i come. finally, seems i've been trying for so long to get here but in reality not so long. shoot i waited 20 years to get on this new lifestyle roller coaster, so really what is a few weeks.
today's meals may be hit or miss because tomorrow is grocery day. i didn't go last week and i have used up my back supply. so it is really hard at this point to get veg, fruit, and protien. but i have canned, and that works for me today. tomorrow i will be ready to start my new week. so till then guys i'm finally getting there from here. one day at a time i guess is what it takes.

here it is another mile stone. within the next couple days i'm going to hit 10,000 spark points. points earned from everything under the sun. i have exercised, eaten healthy, logged, read, blogged, polled, triviaed, and messaged boarded my way around this site for almost five months. i'm not yet at my goal, but i'm on my way. i'm kinda sitting still at the moment. but i hope to be sliding down the other side of this hill soon. wow 10,000 points!!! that is wonderful. it gives my the encouragement i need to keep going. heck i still have 20,000 to get to.
i guess my point to all this is this....don't ever give in or up. not only do you have the scales, measure tapes, and such to measure progress we have the sparkpoints system also. so if you wonder did i do enough today? just look at the points earned for that day. yeah, you did plenty.
today is my last chance day for my weigh in tomorrow. let what will be, be. i'm good with it. i'm still trying hard for the 15 lb goal point, but really it isn't that far away and then i can worry about the 20 lb goal point. so you see guys we have to always look ahead. we sure can't go back and really all we have is right now. so let's enjoy the ride and thank god for allowing us this one more day to try and get it all right. and till next time remember we are going to get there from here.

here we are again, monday, new week full of new beginnings. seems i'm always beginning something. i want to finish this. i've been at the plateau junction for a while now, slowly moving away, but still here all the same. i want to push past this point in my journey. i'm ready for new things. so i commit to myself today that i'm not going to flounder, ok maybe not going to is a strong start, i will try my darndest not to flounder, i will get in my veggies, and fruits above all else. and just enjoy this day. after all that is what this is all about. enjoying each moment in this new life. water, exercise that is all a habit now, it is the food part i seem to be having trouble with. i have to shop for my hubby, who isn't on this journey, and that means things in the house there shouldn't be, and sometimes, not mindyou sometimes, i have to have a taste of this or that. and we all know what happens when we taste....we eat more than we intended. so i have to fill up on the good stuff and think of that as poison. afterall it is that poison that got me here in the first place. so i'm off to begin my new day, wish we luck. i'm planning on getting there from here.

WELL HERE I AM DOWN .8LBS. AM I UPSET? NO! EVEN THOUGH I'M STILL UP I'VE LOST WEIGHT THE LAST TWO WEEKS, FOR ME THAT IS POSITIVE. I'VE BEEN ON A PLATEAU NOW FOR FIVE WEEKS. ANY MOVEMENT DOWN AT THIS POINT IS GOOD MOVEMENT. I DECIDED YESTERDAY ON MY WALK THAT I WAS NOT GIVING UP. I WOULD CONTINUE ON THIS JOURNEY AND DO THE BEST I COULD AND THAT IS ALL I CAN ASK OF MYSELF. I'VE GRUMBLED, KICKED, YELLED, AND JUST PLAIN STARTED TO DISLIKE MYSELF OVER THIS. I REFUSE TO LET THIS GET ME DOWN. I'VE SAID IT BEFORE AND I WILL SAY IT AGAIN....I'M DOWN 12.8 LBS, I'M THINNER THAN I'VE BEEN IN SOMETIME, AND I ACTUALLY EXERCISE NOW. I DO ALL THIS BECAUSE I NEED TO, THIS STARTED OUT A NEED BUT NOW IT IS A WANT. I WANT TO SEE THIS THROUGH. AND IF I HAVE TO KEEP ON THIS PLATEAU FOR MONTHS SO BE IT. I MAY CONTINUE TO KICK, SCREAM, AND CRY, BUT AT LEAST I'M DOING SOMETHING ABOUT MY WEIGHT, HEALTH, AND ISSUES BESIDES WAITING FOR THE WORLD TO CHANGE. I HAVE TO CHANGE ME, NOT WAIT FOR SOMEONE TO CHANGE ME. I'M ENJOYING THE NEW ME I HAVE WORKED FOR. I LIKE MY SIZE RIGHT NOW, SO IF I HAVE TO STAY HERE FOR A BIT AND ADJUST TO IT SO BE IT. THIS IS A JOURNEY, AND I WANT TO STOP AND SMELL THE ROSES ALONG THE WAY. I AM GOING TO GET THERE FROM HERE!!!
