Being back at this for a couple of weeks, I am starting to see some progress, but it seems to be some much tougher this time around. Maybe cause I am also trying to quit smoking as well. But I want to snack all the time. When dieted before when I wanted a snack fruit would do, but this time fruit doesn't work. I want sweet and salty, junk food. I need to find something to snack on that it also low cal and good for me. Right now, DH is trying to help out and lose a few pounds himself.
I am trying to slowly add in more exercise, but the cold weather is not helping on that account. I take the dog out for a work about 10 min in we are both so cold that we head back into the house, he ends chewing on a bone and I end up reading.
Good luck to all!!

Well I have been home from vacation a few weeks now, and just can't seem to get get into the swing of things. I have lost one pound in the past three weeks. I feel like exercising anymore, in fact tonight was the first time since getting back that I did anything other than walk the dog. Every morning I tell myself that after work I am going to work out, but somehow I find other things to do. I have been doing okay on my calories, but near the upper end or a little over. I start the day so good and then somewhere it all goes downhill until I am sitting in front of the TV and snacking on something that should not even be in the house. So writing here to make a change. Recognize what is wrong start again. I am updating my goals and all (no use keeping goals that are never going to happened right).
Tomorrow is another day, and I will make the right choices!!

I am back and vacation was wonderful. Both days that we were in port were beautiful, sunny and in the 80's. I loved the cruise and Canada is beautiful, at least the parts we saw. I am also happy to report that I only gained 3lbs while I was away. I didn't actually make it to the gym on the ship, but we walked just about everywhere we went on the ship and did a fair amount of walking when we were in port. We were on deck 8 and most of the stuff to do on the ship was on Deck 9 or Deck 5, it was just easier to take the stairs then to wait for the elevator. I think that is what helped keep the pounds down, cause I ate and ate. I am having trouble getting back into the swing of things now. I think my body got used to eating all the time, and now it thinks it is hungry when it really isn't.
Now I have 15lbs to lose in a month to meet my next goal. I think that I am going to have to make some goal adjustments cause that one is a little lofty, that would be like 4lbs a week. I am going to try, but not beat myself up if I don't make it.
Hope everyone did well while I was gone.

Well, today is the last day I will have access to the web before I leave on vacation. I have never been on a cruise before so I am really excited. I fell just short of my goal of 15 lbs by the time we leave, I only lost 13lbs, but I still really happy with that. I have told myself that I will be happy if I only gain 5 lbs on vacation. I am trying to be real, it a cruise with food service 24/7, I am going to eat and want to try things. I hope that I can keep it to moderation.
Well wishing everyone good luck while I am away.
See ya on the 30th!!!!

Well, it's been awhile since I have had a chance to write.
I am happy to say that while I haven't been able to keep up with things online, that I am still loosing weight
I normally enter everything at work, but I have been so busy lately that I haven't had a chance and I took a couple days off work to go see Tom Petty last week, which put me further behind in my work. But now I think that I am mostly caught up and it looks like things my slow a bit.
It has been so hot lately that I have not been able to get out and walk and I haven't felt like doing anything, so I haven't. Last night I turned on the Wii for the first time in a long while.
I have two pounds left to make my goal by the 23rd, and I really think I can do it. I plan on taking the dog on a long walk tonight and then maybe do a video or two. Hopefully, I keep the motivation that I feel right now throughout the evening.
On a bright note, the weather has brought out the shorts. I don't have a single pair of shorts that fit me. DH took me shopping on Saturday for clothing to wear on our cruise, and bought I wonderful dress in a size 12. I haven't fit in a 12 in several years.
Hope all is going well for everyone else out there and remember just keep moving!!!
