So, my feelings got a little hurt yesterday evening and it really upset me! It's about my sister in law. About eight years ago my brother in law ans sister in law had to live with us. Nancy, my sister in law, was never very nice. They ended up moving out and when they did she accused me of stealing her diaper bag! Which totally peeved me off because I would never do that. Anyhow, that was in Springfield MO...we moved to Peoria IL stortly after that. My fiance talked them into moving up here 1 1/2 years ago. I have tryed my hardest to like the lady and put things in the past! I've been nice and we have hung out, etc...I was very pleased. Then our guys got into an arguement and she hasn't really talked to me much since, they live a block away BTW! Anyhow, I went over there 2 weeks ago and chit chatted for a bit...she's not come t my house to hang out or anything in over 3 months! I have been texting her...sometimes she texts back. Well, last week she didn't text back at I finally texted and asked if she was mad at reply. I found out from my brother in law that there phone was suspended and she couldn't text back...but she got the text...she didn't even bother coming over and telling me this herself or that she wasn't mad at me! BUT last night she was hanging out at my neighbors!!!! Yeah, at my neighbors....right next door!!! Did she come over and talk to me then!? NO!?!?! Sorry, I really needed to vent on this one...

My calorie counting is going great!

    you know what if she doesnt want to spend time with you , its her problem really ,, i had to go through that with friends and even some family members, pretty much I refuse to let them hurt me anymore and they had no right to hurt me so I cut them from my life and as hard as that was i am the better for it, but funny thing they still come around or call or text me which is fine but I am not going out of my way

    There's an old saying...we can pick our friends but can't pick our family (or In Laws). And venting is GOOD!

I do see how it may be odd that my weight enteries were the first thing I wrote, well, I just didn't want to forget it!

I had a great weekend. I do find it harder to count my calories on the weekend as I am at home with my family. I still seem to be losing! YES! My youngest son walked a mile with me and we did it faster then normal and he was so happy! My whole family is supporting me in my weight loss journey! My mom sent me a great email telling me she's here for me. I am going to actually lose this time.

I have tried so many times before. The Dr Atkins diet...grrr. I lost 60 pounds on it then gained 75 back! The last time I tried it, I about passed out at work. It's not for me.

Exercise over the weekend and so far this week: I'm walking a mile a day. Takes about 20/21 minutes. I try and get some crunches in and I am always doing streches when I am just standing around, may look funny, LOL!

Stress: I am learning to handle stress better. So far so good. I can do it!

Hope everyone has a great week!

TGIF! My week in a nutshell.

Friday, September 17, 2010

I'm so happy it's Friday but I'm on call for work this weekend. I really hope I don't get a lot of call offs. At least it's not a payday weekend.

Stress: My stress this week has been up there. I am a group home manager. My site should have six staff memebers to be fully staffed. As of this week I only have two staff members and they are my third shifters. One is 8 months pregant and the other will need to get surgery on her shoulder soon. I have been making lots and lots of calls to get my shifts covered. If I don't get them covered then I have to work them myself. So, that's been getting to me. I am also behind on two student loans and there's no way I can get them caught up. The holidays are quickly approaching. My youngest son's birthday is 10/30, then halloween, my oldest son's birthday 11/18, Thanksgiving, mine and my fiance's 10 year anniversary 11/26, and then lastly Christmas. Am I going to survive? Better yet, will my wallet survive?

Exercise: I have decided to sign up for the 10 minute challenge. I figure I can do that much. It's a babystep and that's what I need right now. I have tried walking a mile every night but sometimes time gets away from me. I can find 10 minutes!

I made a yummy meatloaf last night, it was great and yes I only ate one serving, though I wanted more. Eating healthier has become a little easier for me. I still feel like it's work counting calories and measuring or weighing serving sizes but it's working so I will continue!

I want to thank everyone in 300+ Team! You guys are great and very supportive!

9/1 336
9/7 334.2
9/13 331.6

I looked back at my food journal and 6/29/10 I weighed 348.9

Have a great weekend!

    Congrats on your weight loss - that seems quite an amount in a fairly short time, but not too huge then I realised it was from the end of June, so nice and steady.

Adding in exercise will help, especially with size.
The 10-minutes-a-day is definitely doable.
If you can't get motivated - follow a course of SP fitness videos. Your 10-minutes is measured for you, and you get the company! And a SP boot camp varies your exercises for you over the course of 7 days - a win/win situation.

Let us know how you're getting on.
And what is the recipe for your meat loaf?

It's in sight!

Wow! So today I feel great! I know I am glowing! I have lost 10 pounds since the 30th of August. My goal is to get down to 300 pounds by Dec 15th. I was wondering to myself if I had set to high of a goal but I truly believe with confidence that I can do it! I am watching portions, counting calories and walking a mile every night (except last night.) I have never been able to do this before but here I am!!! I have given but on soda, which was very hard for me as I was drinking at the very least a 2liter of regular DrPepper a day. Mind blowing, I know. I only drink water now and I love it. I can do this! I have tols so many people at work about my weight lose and how I am down two pant sizes and everyone is so supportive! And Sparkpeople, wow, thank you!
