I Want to SCREAM at the Pounds!!!Well, not today.....

Monday, April 05, 2010

This title was brought to you courtesy of my toddler ,who was watching me weigh myself! Actually, I've been pretty HAPPY at my progress so I'll save my scream for another day!!! I'm leaving the 180s behind and sailing into unchartered territory of the 170s; ,haven't seen those numbers since...I don't when... oh yes, I do ... the 30s! My hubby wrote on my cardw/the bouquet of roses for my 50th--Happy 30th!Which I think is so sweet!! But I am embracing my 50s with a healthier body! Anyway,I have dropped another 1% body fat so anyway I slice it{btw,the leftover cake & pizza were given to my hubby's work!},the LOSSES ARE GREAT!!!! Hope the Sparkers reading this are losing ,too---remember,like the icon I picked-the turtle-S_L_O_W_ and steady wins the race b/c we want the weight to stay OFF and it will when you take it slow & it's better for your body ----an easier adjustment..... emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Isn't it great to be in a whole different weight bracket. I'm in the 150's and I can't wait to see 120 something. At 5'2 and shrinking thats a healthy weight. I remember when I was in my 20's that weight would of freaked me out.. I normally weighed around 105 to 108 but in my 50's I'll take the extra Have a great week. I hope you see the 160's soon...

It's A SPecial Easter indeed!!!

Sunday, April 04, 2010

First,this day is about my Saviour---He is Risen indeed! I am blessed to Know Him as my Saviour! But also, it's wonderful to celebrate my niece's birthday.....she and my brother surprised me for a visit on my birthday....he lives in another state! Also, {submitted as a secret of success that nobody will believe---lost a .4 of a lb. eating choc.cake & pizza!} Note : the title was a typo-but then I left it as it applied!---that's how I see God working in my life all the time. He lets me make my mistakes ,but accepts me as I am and HOPEFULLY I LEARN from them! Have a blessed Easter today!!

Today's My 50th Birthday and what a birthday gift

Saturday, April 03, 2010

Well, originally when I started this weight loss journey,I had today as my 'hit the goal' day. And after I lost TEN lbs. the FIRST MONTH, I thought this is doable!{I just added strength training and only hit my range 8x that month.I was concentrating on 1 thing at a time!---I'm also starting to list"my secrets" to help others!}. But after I hit a plateau for a week and was losing 1.25 a week instead of 2.5 a wk.,I saw this was alot harder than I thought!Don't get me wrong!IAM HAPPY with my weight loss and know eventually it WILL COME OFF! Today was a nice surprise after a MOM"friend" gave me a dark's my secret pal-some pal?! And you know I ate the WHOLE bar!! That's why I don't have choclate,candy or cookies in the house at all.....b/c I KNOW ME!!!! Anyways, Celebrating my 50th in an unusual fashion----Having a private party at my SON"S GYM so all the 2yos could climb and play safely while I get to talk to all my friends & mom friends,too! No gifts, just funny cards and the cake,food and tableware,drinks are all provided! No clean-up and no bringing anything!Yes,I get 1 piece of cake and my 2nd fave food after OREOS, sausage pizza!! --1, 2 slices tops!! Then, when it's done{only 2 hrs. long} I EARNED MY TREAT--15 lb. loss= a visit to a new scrapbooking store!!! What a delightful birthday for a kid -at-heart who loves to scrapbook!! Note:I'm Noweigan and my son likes frogs!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Happy birthday! I've just read the article on SP about fitness party - I think it's a brilliant idea!
Congratulations on your weight loss and keep up the good work.
Thanks for your comment on my sparkpage! I'm just like you - I don't want to have any chocolate in the house or else I just eat it. I guess knowing ourselves is the main part of success.

Happy April Fool's Day!

Thursday, April 01, 2010

Well, today I lost all the weight I've ever wanted and it promised me it was going to stay away the rest of my life,so I could enjoy the "fruits" of my labor and not worry about cholestrol....Worry agreed with weight that it should also stay out of my life so it has said good-bye!Fear of the unknown has left as well and BOLDNESS TO SPEAK about SPARKPEOPLE has joined up with a BETTER ATTITUDE to help me control my eating habits.NEW LIFESTYLE has sailed in from Charleston{where my L.I.L.Mommies Sparkteam is visiting on a virtual trip},bringing in NEW CLOTHES that are going to make new friends with me. FITNESS and FEELING HEALTHIER have jumped on the bandwagon with BOLDNESS TO SPEAK.------

Hope you enjoyed my April Fool's story;got the idea from some previous entries on the daily SparkBlog about french fries,etc.! Although there are truths in the story,especially about BOLDNESS TO SPEAK.....guess I'm just wanting to spread the I think I'm ready to change to Stage 4 of DIET STAGE STRATEGIES OF THE SPARKDIET!!! Thanks to all sparkers for their wonderful,helpful comments and thoughts and reading!! Happy Easter to all and no chocolate for me! I have something better eat!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
