I'll start with the small victory , i have been sparking for over 3 months now & have had great success , well my fiancÚ always says he is going to start watching what he eats & then 10 minutes later i see him eating half a bag of trail mix while watching tv ( trail mix from costco = very large bag with M&Ms mixed in ) most suppers he is eating the same things as i am (i do all the cooking) but his portions are out of control !!!! well yesterday i made a really nice salad to go with our supper he liked it so much he has brought one for his lunch 2 days in a row !!!! woohoo !!!! Small Victory !!!! now if i can only get him to eat Breakfast !
now to the how could they think that ???? I had someone comment a few days ago on my weight loss the comment was , do you think you are loosing too much weight ???? Too much weight ????? I am 5,3 & 198 pounds !!!! I'm not trying to , nor do i want to be a size zero . i would just like to be between 135-150 pounds ... i am eating right& exercising , my blood sugar , bp & cholesterol are all at normal levels again & i plan to keep it that way !!!! i laughed at them said no & walked away !!! i still think it's funny just thinking about it !!!LOL
well today is day 2 of overtime , i will be glad when it's over i miss my morning workouts , did i just say that i miss working out !!!! That's funny !!!! it's just allot easier for me to break my work outs into 2 sessions per day instead of doing it all at night after work ... oh well , everything should be back to normal by monday :)
Hope everyone is having a great day !!!!

I have had consistent weight loss since oct & for the past few weeks i have been waiting for the dreaded plateau , i have noticed the weight is coming off slower than usual & i was fine with that because i know that is the normal process . I am waiting for test results from the doctor that i'm a bit worried about & i have a fitting for my wedding dress soon & there was a flood at my reception hall, i guess it all got to me & i made some bad food choices & did not drink enough water but i am proud to say i did all my workouts , i did not even skip one :) well i weighed in this morning and i have gained 1.5 pounds !!!!! now i have to get back on the wagon & eat right & drink plenty of water & fix the damage i have done !!!!

I taped my 600 pound life wed night & started watching it , it is about Melissa Morris's 7 year journey to loose weight . she said something that really spoke to me , she said something like " they are fixing my body , but i wish they could fix my head " people who watch us go through our journey to loose weight do not realise the emotional struggles that go with it . the guilt you feel when you have an extra scoop of potatoes or miss a workout or OMG have a piece of chocolate !!!! that even after you loose the weight the fear you will gain it back or the fear that you will fail ! it's more than just watching what you eat & exercising , you also have to change the way you think & battle all your inner demons .
Melissa Morris is one brave woman to go through what she did & to have T.V cameras taping it all . I have / had 100 pounds to loose i am down 41.5 so i have 58.5 left i could not imagine starting at close to 600 pounds !!!! what an inspiration she is !!!!

it will be 4 months sunday that i joined Sparkpeople & i have been following the plan & exercising daily & for all my effort i have lost 41.5 pounds & i am proud of every single pound of it , but lately (last 2 weeks ) i feel like i am stuck in a rut , no i have not hit a plateau , but i feel the need for change . Maybe i should add some new music to my MP3 & i have several work out dvd's in the basement that have never even been opened . your probably asking right now why i have not opened them , well i have a deformity in my spine ( my L3 ) & if i bend repeatedly my back seizes & then i can't move for days .... This is probably the reason why i am bored , i do the easier workouts that do not require bending so i don't affect my back , yes my workouts have been affective in my weight loss journey but i know my core really needs work ! Fear is a horrible thing & it often hold us back from being all that we can be , from achieving our ultimate goal ! I remember clearly the day My doctor told me i should change jobs because my back would not hold out much longer if i kept doing manual labor, i was only 25 at the time !!!!& 50 pounds less than i am now !!! Every time i push myself and feel any pain in my lower back i remember all the physio therapy sessions i had to endure to get me mobile again . This fear makes me feel helpless ! i just have to remember the more weight i loose the less strain on my body & back & the more mobile i will be , i cannot totally fix my spine but i can improve everything around it to give it more support ! i think i need to take another look at those unopened DVD's !!!!
