monday....i survived the weekend...

Monday, June 22, 2009

i think i have got it now....i survived the weekend. stayed at points both days. now that doesn't happen often on weekends. i stuck with my plan and had a very nice time at a cookout yesterday. i guess it is just all in moderation.

i was baptized saturday evening and also my daughter. it was wonderful. for the first time in my life i feel a part of something bigger than even i could have imagined. thanks sp for giving me the courage to strive for more in my life. not only in weight loss but in all aspects. i just tell myself if i can do this i can do anything.

so on to monday. i have a long week ahead. i have to work this next weekend and that means no rest for me till next tuesday. oh well i can and will succeed. we do what must be done to survive in this world gone crazy.

so remember one minute, day, or week take it slow and steady. have a wonderful day all. michelle. emoticon

  Weekends are my challlenge too! I have 3 days weekends and they are always full of temptation.. During the week i do pretty well because I have scheduled breaks and we are not allowed to have food on the warehouse house floor... and the breaks are only 2 twenty minute ones... but nights and weekends... those are definitley my weak times!! emoticon

friday and weigh in

Friday, June 19, 2009

well i stayed the same this week. am i upset? no way...that means i did something right. can't wait for next weigh in. my plan is for one pound, but we all know how that can go. my points on weight watchers has changed also. with my loss i get less now. so i have a wonderful week ahead to figure this out. i've pretty much stayed on track all week so i think i will be fine. i'm not eating potatos like i once did, which i know on occasion are good for you, i just don't seem to have a taste for them anymore. i love veggies and seem to upped that part nicely. i don't really need chocolate, but i love salt and crunchy. have fourn sun chips to hit the spot and they are actually good for you, that is if eaten properly. i'm learning balance with food, snacks, and exercise. thank you sp for the encouragement and giving my plenty of tools to work with for free. especially in this new economy we have going on. so till next time i wish all a good day and remember one minute, one day, and one week is all you need to succeed.

    Wow That was so freshing to hear. emoticon

I too like Sun Chips. They have all different flavors now.
I also found some cheese curls that have a bunch of multigrain and fiber in them.
Taste good but need a drink with them. ha! dries out your mouth or something.
Which is good I guess cause #1 drink more water and #2 I don't eat as many.

With the economy we have switched to going to produce stands every 2-3 days. This way I don't have any veggies or fruit going bad. I am so addicted to fresh veggies and fruit now.

*whispers* ssshhh don't tell my DH. I am been trying to get him to eat better. emoticon

Have a Wonderful Day!

thursday, last chance day for me.

Thursday, June 18, 2009

here i am facing another weigh in day. i have to confess they don't mean the same to me as they once did. oh don't get me wrong i still weigh in regually, and sometimes more than is reccommended but since i hit the much dreaded plateau and just kind of hung on there for a bit. it took the thrill of my weigh ins right away. now i close my eyes, hold my breath and say a small prayer. sometimes it works ( week before last i lost 2.8lbs) and sometimes it doesn't( this past week i gained 2 lbs.)

any work that needed doing this week to ensure a loss i may not have done. so here i sit looking over my week and wondering. i ate right daily and kept the nutrition tracker busy this week. i count points for weight watchers but this week i did both to see how i fall. i also got my walks in but not my evening one. sorry guys it has been 99* and hotter here and even in the evenings i just don't have the strength to do it. i don't think my little dogs could take it. (my chihuahuas that is, not my feet)

so i will hope the food planning paid off some. i'm over half way to my goal and i'm doing fine. i can't honestly believe i've lasted this long. i never have before. and when i want to quit, i just can't seem to. i head to the foods i need, not want, and i exercise when really i just want to rest. heck maybe now this is a lifestyle to me and not much of a diet anymore. don't get me wrong i still eat the wrong foods on occasion, just not everyday.

so i will end this blog with my usual....we can get there from here and this is a journey best taken one minute, day, and week at a time.

    I will cross my fingers that your weigh-in and hard worked paid off. Maybe the 2 lbs gained were in muscle and now that the muscle is relaxed, you will show a loss.
One second at a time, one minute, one hour and one day at atime...hope it works.

another wonderful day

Tuesday, June 16, 2009

i won't stay long just a note to let myself know what a wonderful day i had. first i stayed on plan, i had bible study and a class for my baptisim (my daughter is also being baptized with me) , and my daughter joined our church. today i thank god for many blessings. i'm going to keep on keeping on and with much help from friends and god i'm going to succeed. so till next time take this one minute, day, and week at a time. it didn't get here in a short time and it won't come off in a short time. patience i think is the key. and believe me im trying my best to be patient. till next time keep sparking.

survived the weekend without many scars

Monday, June 15, 2009

i did it! i actually made it through the weekend without any wounds, guilt, or weight gain. man this is wonderful. my secret you ask? i haven't got a clue. i kept busy. that is my only guess at this point. i planned and i kept moving. i 'm a bordom eater so as long as i keep busy (hands and mouth) i don't over endulge. may i recommend it to all. i have a class coming up tommorrow evening at church because i'm being baptized. man that is such a funny thing at my age to say. but it's true. i felt i was missing something and i think i have found what that was. church and christ. so if your not religous ( and i understand completly) don't shake your head and just turn away now. i have found friendship, love, and much hope at church. i see alot on these blogs and often wonder if maybe what others are searching for isn't right there all along. prayer is wonderful. i know you may not have things answered in the time and space you would like, but believe me they are answered in the manner god wants and usually if you look back it is just what was needed. so till my next blog may i say god bless you all. and remember this is a journey one minute, day, and week at a time. you can't rush perfection, and after all that is what each of us is striving for. we are going to get there from here.
