Getting back on track

Saturday, April 26, 2008

I knew keeping the weight off that I lost would be harder then losing it, and that once again in my life is proving to be true. Since last October I have been gaining and losing the same 8-10 pounds which has been super frustrating but, I'm happy to say that I still have not given up. I exercised this morning for the first time in a few weeks and I am determined to stay on track with my eating. So far so good. I am going to make myself some short term goals like I did in the beginning and see if I can get these 9.8 pounds off and then work on the last 37.

I know I can do it I just need to make it my first priority!

    You are the reason I joined SP. I read the article in People Magazine and I have decided not to give up. I just read your sparkpage and realized that you lost weight at the beginning like it was nobody's business. Unbelievable. I have only been able to lose an average of 8lbs a month. This said, maybe you are used to losing weight quickly and are getting frustrated that the numbers aren't going as fast as they used to? I might be wrong. But slow and steady. you are doing great, and are still and inspiration for me.

    You know, the more I know people that are "maintaining" the more I come to believe that it's really about keeping your weight within a certain range, give or take 5-10 pounds, than it is about staying at one set number.

It also seems that this is way that the "naturally slim" people in my life behave. As soon as their belt gets a little too tight, they recommit for a while, and then just repeat that cycle as they need to.

Don't be too hard on yourself. :)

"Mommy Olympics" Update

Friday, April 25, 2008

Thank you all for helping my daugter..........It was a lot of fun we woke up this morning at 4:30 and got ready to be to the event at 6:30 am. I was Super nervous but, soon found out most of the mom's were. We did not win the big playset but, had a lot of fun trying. They had relay races, baby food eating contest and a tug of war. In the end Inna won a $250.00 Birthday party and the dog you see in the photo above.

Who knows there's always next year..........thanks again

    Just wishing you the best of luck on Friday!! I voted for you (Skinny's plea worked), and just got your thank you note - thought I'd better check your sparkpage to learn more about Friday - - and what I found was lots of inspiration!! You have done so great with your weight loss! Just looking at the changes in your pictures make me think it's really possible!! I'm going to sleep tonight with a very positive attitude. Thanks!

P.S. Will be anxious to hear how things go Friday!! Best wishes again!

    Now that we are doing it I am terrified. I just put all the food that I was eating in the trash and I am getting on my Treadmill.

I think I just found some motivation.......... emoticon

    That's awesome Kristi! I wish I could watch you compete. Maybe you can post some pictures or give us the link to the radio station's website and they might have some pictures posted. I am keeping my fingers and toes crossed and sending you all the strength and energy you'll need to beat those other moms! I know you can do it! Wow....this thing will look great in your newly finished back yard! emoticon

I have Motivated so many people so why cant I motivate myself?

I have gained 10 pounds over the last 6 weeks. I know I can do it .. now if I could just stay motivated for longer then a day! I only had 15 pounds to go and I would have no longer been over weight. 15 pounds .. I eliminated that in my first month with Spark!

    Thank you so much for sharing this. It reminds me that this is a lifelong thing and there is no "arrival". I think that mindset has sabotoged me before.

    Thanks I know what the problem is I just am having trouble making myself do something about it!

No exercise and way to many calories.

WANDAH3 4/20/2008 2:32PM

    Are you eating enough? My weight elimination slowed down when I began exercising more and didn't know to adjust my calorie intake. Now that I am working on increasing my calorie intake and maintaining my exercise minutes, my weight elimination has once again adjusted accordingly. Either that or it just comes down to choices...are you making good ones.
Just a suggestion....try positively affirming each time you want something to eat that you are eating healthy and wisely, that you are fueling your body so that it has optimum health, that you are eliminating weight and your metabolism is performing at it's best.
Just throwing out some food for thought. I know you will find your solution.

Fun Contest

Sunday, April 13, 2008

My 8 year old daughter entered an online contest with a local radio station to win herself a Swing Set / Playground. In order for her to win she has to be one of the top 20 kids to get the most votes. If she gets enough votes then I will have to compete in something called the "mommy Olympics" with 19 other mommies to try and win the play set for there child. If you have a spare moment please go to

and vote for Inna #67. They will be showing the contest on the local news station and if we get enough votes I am going to wear my Spark T-shirt to compete. The voting Starts Tuesday April 15th and ends Tuesday April 22nd.
Thanks everyone in advance for taking the time to help us win. If you get this message and you wouldn't mind copying and pasting it in your Team's to help me pass along the word there is only one vote per computer so that would be Awesome!
Thank you,
aka Kristi

    I'm going to ask all my friends to vote. I don't bug them for stuff like this often, so I don't feel guilty. It would be so excellent for you. We have a great playset in the yard, and it's the best thing in the world. I hope you win!!!!! Try to remind us tomorrow, when voting starts.

    With out Sparkpeople there is no way that I would have competed in a "Mommy Olympic" before I lost weight so I have to give credit where credit is due. =)
