All I have been thinking about is 219. 219. 219. TWO NINETEEN!
I am trying to get there. I really am.
219 means I have lost MORE than 70 pounds (which is where I have been since June losing and gaining the same 5-10 pounds).
219 means I will have left the 300's, 290's, 280's, 270's, 260's, 250's, 240's, 230's and 220's behind.
219 means I am only 3 pounds away from losing 75 pounds and on my way to 80,90 and more.
219 means I am getting closer to weighing less than my husband.
I want those things. REALLY BAD!
For the last few weeks I have stepped it up. I walked a 5k for the first time ever, added back 3 day a week 1o minute excercise video's, I have been planning my dinners and tracking truthfully and if (like today), I am having a heavier dinner than usual, I plan for a healthier breakfast and lunch.
I am not going to lie and say I have been perfect (wth does that mean anyway?) but I have been mindful and in the back of my mind, I keep saying 219. I want it. I want it bad. I am trying really hard to get there. I feel if I can blast through that stupid 220 wall, I will be on my way to the rest of my weight loss.
It may take me longer than I would like, I may go up before I go down but I guarantee you, I WILL GET THERE. And beyond.
So keep watching because one day, one day really soon, you are gonna see a blog from me titled "219".
That is my chant. That is my goal. That is my mantra.

Yesterday I went and helped my neice have a garage sale and move into her new place, which is starting a fabulous new life. I lifted alot of stuff and didn't eat very well but got it done and had a good time doing it, frank was home with a cold and by the time I got home last night, he was so sweet and sincerely missed me. As you know, we don't spend alot of time part! Anyway, today I made breakfast and even tho he was still sick, we took stitchy for a walk and then came home and i made lunch. There were several hours in between all of this, lol. Kady had made cake pops and I really wanted one. I even put it in my tracker. When I went to the frig, I saw a big bag of grapes. I popped one in my mouth and it was crunchy and delicious and sweet. I got a bowl of them, came to spark and pushed delete on the cake pop and added grapes instead. Its funny how that simple act has made me feel so confidant. I can get through the rest of the day now. I'm sure of it.

I have lost about 40 pounds since June. Unfortunately, it has been the same 10 pounds over and over. I hit my 70 pounds down in June. I am still here. That is unacceptable.
You know what else is unacceptable? Eating cookies while reading cannie's blog on sugar addiction?
And you know what else? Eating cookies because my stress was off the charts last night. I know better. I usually don't stress eat anymore but damn, last night was a cookie avalanche that started with one.
So, you know me, little miss positive. I will do better today. I have committed to myself and now to all of you, to do my 5k walk today. I have mapped it and i know what I have to do. I have dinner planned, the cookies are out of sight and i have a busy day ahead so that will be good to keep me busy.
You wanna know what I am doing for lunch? Huh? Do ya?
I am meeting CELLISTA for lunch in Oakland today! She is visiting family and I am less than an hour away! I am really excited! The last time I met a spark friend, she went insane and dissapeared (Mai a, if you are lurking, I still miss you!).
So yea, I will take a picture of us(with her permission) and let you know how my day and my walk goes. Have a great day sparkies!

So you all know I have been preaching back to basics....eat 4 servings of fruits and veggies a day, eat more than the minimum protein, excerise 4 days a week. This last weekend was crazy busy and while I was happy to not gain any weight this weekend, by today, I was struggling.
I was hungry and munching and tired and kinda moody. Then the light bulb went off.
Barely 1 serving of freggies in the last 3 days. I skipped walking on Monday. I was a little short on my water and barely made the minimum with protein.
It is hard to believe that just a few days of not quite doing what I know is best for me had me really out of sorts. It was really interesting.
So back on track with my nutrition starting today. I started my morning with the 10 minute Kickboxing video. And i signed up for that trick or treat trot thingy and agreed to walk a 5 k by Sunday. Keep in mind, I usually walk somewhere in the 2 mile range but since my back/hip was hurting at about a mile for some reason, I haven't been going that far. Today I decided I would take my pain pill and just friggin do it. I meant to map it out first but frank got home early so i figured I would wing it and we would walk where we usually do and i would know how far 3.1 miles is.
So we walked and i was so excited and i came home and tracked it. It was only 2.7!!! Gah! I was so mad! So now I have to do it again! But I have tracked it and know what I
have to do and I'm gonna do it. Frank said why am I doing this? I was close, just forget it.
Um, no. I told myself I would and i am going to. Nobody cares if I do it. Except me. So i am gonna do it. And i am gonna eat well and i am gonna get out of these 220's if it kills me!
So we went
