i finally did it. i got out of the 140's. i also finally hit my 15lbs mark...i'm so thrilled. i reallly can't say how it happened. i cheated, ok not cheated but enjoyed much ice cream one day, but i got back on the horse and i guess not doing that daily helped me stay on track. so i know i can have a treat, just not a box of treats. gotta remember that. not only did i lose 2.8lbs this week, i hit my 15 lb goal. so two things to celebrate. i can now worry about the next five pounds on my journey. i try to go five pounds at a time so as not to get to far ahead of myself. kinda makes it a bit easier to handle this way. though i stayed at this last five pound segment much much much longer than i wanted to. but now i'm off to the next race. i feel so good today i feel like i could fly. maybe i just wasn't eating enough. truth be told i upped my points this week, weight watchers, and maybe that helped to jump start my metabolism. i had to do something different because what i was doing just wasn't working for me. and a friend (cat) also told me her secret is to change her strength trained routine on a monthly basis. i was doing to same ole same ole. so with that said. i 'm off to start this new week with enough energy and enthusiasim for all of us. i just have to remember to take this one minute, day, and week at a time and the rest will fall into place.

well here i am at the last chance day once again. as i look back on this week i wonder why i seem to not be able to get it right. i've done fine all week till yesterday. i could of maybe worked off the ice cream attack if it was say on saturday, but no i have to have it on wednesday and now i know what is going to happen. when i say attack i mean attack. i had three, count them three ice cream bars. one just wasn't enough, it tasted like more. i don't get myself. i say i want to lose this weight, but then i have moments like these and i have to wonder do i really want to do better or is that just hype?
i have lost almost 14 pounds and yet i sabbatage myself weekly to get the remainder off. i have to wonder if i really want it bad enough to fight for it or am i just telling myself that. i say i want it, i get upset when i don't get it, but then i go and do what is needed to wreck a great week in progress. i had finally gotten in my exercise, i have been staying under points for days, i'm on weight watchers, then i go and do this. ok i've beat myself up about it. i've told the sp community all about it. and there is no where to go but up from here. shoot i'm already down. so i'm picking myself up, dusting off my a** and getting a move on. so what this week may be dud i have next week, the next, and many more after that to get this right.
i vow this week to use my food scales for something more than a dust collector, i vow to use my nordic trak and that great exercise room i have, and i vow to stick to plan. i can and will do this. one minute, day, and week at a time. enough is enough. i'm the only one standing in my way and i need to push past my weakness and get to my strengths. have a blessed day all.

well the weekend is over and i made it without much ado about nothing. i had to work this weekend so it helped me stay on plan and get my walks in at lunch. the weather is had been wonderful (compared to last weeks rain daily) and i have been able to walk during lunch and in the evenings with the dogs. they have gotten so used to it i'm not even in the house and they are at the door wagging tails and ready. they are my new motivation to exercise in the evenings and i have to tell you they are very good at their jobs.
my plan for today is to get through it without much trouble. i will get my walks in and i've already got my strength training out of the way for the day. i've got the next two days off and i will do my darndest to stick to plan those days. so till i blog again, i will take this journey one step at a time. no running for me.

yesterday was my weigh in day. i'm a day late in blogging but i've been busy getting in my exercise for next week. i gained a pound this week, i'm not upset about this as it is my pms week and we all know what that means. heck really i'm used to gaining two pounds for i'll take this. i was a bit upset to begin with, not with me but the scales. i got so mad i kicked them. may i not suggest that method for all. after i yelled at myself for a couple of minutes i stopped and said to myself, self, this is the wrong week to be so upset. and you know what? it is. next week i will take it back.
exercise was a no show this past week also as it rained daily so i couldn't get my lunchtime walk, or evening walk with my pups in. so mostly it was a bust no matter how i look at it. but this is a new week, new ideas, and new goals. i have learned one thing, no matter how much i get upset, rant, rave, and carry on i end up heading for the same routine. you know what? this is now a lifestyle for me. i can't seem to do it any other way. so in truth this week wasn't such a bust. it taught me that i am going to get there from here and i will not give in or up. shoot so what it takes me the next year to lose the remainder of my weight. i look darn good at this point and i feel darn good. no conceit here. but guys we have to give ourselves a pat on the back for a job well done, because in the end we are all we have to count on. in the rough world we can't depend on others for our happiness.
that is my sermon for the day. so till next time. don't give up or in. and remember as i do, this is a journey best taken one minute, day, and week at a time.
