back in onederland!!

Friday, March 12, 2010

It's been so long since I've seen a 1 in front of my weight I forgot how good it felt. It's amazing what one little ounce can do for your ego! Now on to my next goal which is to fit into my old clothes that have been collecting dust for over 2 years now. I have about 10-15 lbs for that. One outfit is now hanging outside the closet for inspiration. Onward and (down)ward. No more up!

back from vacation & fatter than ever!

Saturday, July 26, 2008

Wow! I didn't realize a person could gain so much weight on vacation. It doesn't help when you are kind of forced to eat out every night for two weeks. Even if you make good choices sometimes, the food at a restaurant is not prepared the way you would have done in at home. I don't even want to share what I weigh on this site I'm so embarrassed. I'm right back to where I started 2 years ago. GGRRR!!! How did I let this happen? I'm not in the mindset to lose either, which is really scary. I'm so pissed at myself for winding up back here.

    I understand where you're coming from. my in-laws came to town a few weeks ago and I did the same thing. Try to think out it this way, yes you overate but now you know what to expect the next time you go on vacation and can develop strategies to still keep it fun and keep it healthy. Try not to beat yourself up. The fact that you know you need to get back on track is a positive thing. You're headed in the right direction. emoticon

    I think that would be one thing that scares me about Vacation. There is all the choices of what you can eat and the servings sizes are like 3 times the size we would eat at home. don't be so hard on yourself. you might be back at where you started a couple years ago but remember you have lost the weight once and with motivation and determination you will lose it again. I lost weight before my met my husband and in 2 years I gained it back and than some. If you need motivation and support you have come to the right place to get it. good luck with your weight loss journey

I got a promotion!

Saturday, June 28, 2008

After 9 1/2 years at the bank, I finally got a Asst. Manager position. It took a lot of hard work and proving myself to people, but I did it. More money, more recognition, more responsibility. I can't wait! I am so excited to start my new job. Maybe things are looking up now. My husband and I have struggled so much for the past 4 years. My kids have had to miss different things to participate in because we didn't have money to spare. I hope this is the beginning of good things to come.

gotta lose weight!!

Tuesday, May 06, 2008

It just hit me that I'm going to Georgia in 2 months and I need to lose some weight before then. I don't want to look huge at the beach. I don't want to be uncomfortable in the airplane. I'm going to try and lose 15 lbs. by July 4th, I'm leaving for Georgia on the 8th. We are visiting my sis and her family, who I haven't seen in years. I saw my sis at Christmas when my mom passed away, but she couldn't bring the kids with her, it was too expensive. So I am excited! But I have to get myself in gear and stop making excuses for not losing.
