So I gained back 44 lbs in 2008 and then 36 pounds in 2009 for a weight gain of 80 pounds. I am now at 240 lbs AGAIN!!!! So starting today I am planning to make 2010 a GREAT year just like 2007 by losing 100 lbs AGAIN!!!

My plan is to exercise for 1 hour 6 days a week and eat below 1900 calories and of course my 14 glasses of water. Hopefully this will result in a 2lb loss per week over the course of a year I should be at or below a healthy weight of 144 lbs.

My photo journal seemed to help me in 2007 so I will get my picture and post it today!

Wish me luck emoticon

    Wow Kristi, seeing you on here as inspired me. I want to do this too...and this time, I might even do a photo journal like you. However, I will not take photos of myself in my underwear! Hahahaha.

1900 calories eaten, 500 burned....sounds like I could follow that plan. Perhaps it's time for me to dust off my sparkpage and start blogging and logging and whatnot.

Good luck to you. I KNOW you can do this. You are awesome and you have all the info you need to do this again.

    Well, at least you slowed the weight gain DOWN in 2009 :-)

I think it's time for all us 2007 people to take our journey back! I lost nothing last year, and I'm not sure if I gained 5 or if that's what I started at...either way, I hate that I lost an entire year. My goal has been to get this weight off by the time I'm 40, and that's IN SIX MONTHS!!! AAAARRGG!!! :-) I have to lose 55 pounds by June!?! LOL At least I'm on the right track.

You're going to do this. I have complete faith in you.

38 Weeks Until Summer 2010

Saturday, August 29, 2009

Spring and Summer are the months that I tend to have a hard time with food because of BBQ season we are now coming up on Fall and Winter so if I could just snap out of my bad habits I could be back to the 150's by next Spring.

I have a really nice Treadmill and weight bench in my home however I just cant seem to motivate myself daily so I have purchased a Gym membership in hopes that once I get there I will become motivated and get it done.

It's been over a year now of struggling and gaining for me! I have gained back 68 of the 101 pounds that I lost. I now have 105 pounds to lose but would be happy to just get back to the 150's by next Summer and stop gaining.

I'm hoping this is my last I'm getting on track blog and that the rest will be my journey back!

  I hope you are still around and hanging in. Remember this is a journey not a destination. You can do this. You are not starting over you are just continuing on your journey. No journey is ever a straight line. :)

    Hang in there. Let the past be the past and take it from here. Try not to think about how much of that 100lb loss you've gained. I know it's not easy, trust me, I know. But like Princess says: you've done it before and you WILL do it again. We both will! know that I'm in your corner and rooting for you. Just keep trying!!

    It's not over until you stop trying. Better to keep recomitting than to do nothing.

Keep it up -- you'll get there again.

Good Morning Spark Family!

Tuesday, June 23, 2009

I'm here to make a 1 day commitment to myself. I have my gym clothes on and I'm ready to go as soon as I hit send I am going to do an easy 30 minutes. I also have most of my food planned out for the day and I AM going to stick to it. I just woke up and so far nothing stressful has happened which is why I am so motivated and ready to go. My goal today is to deal with stressful situations in ways other then food. Honestly I think if I get stressed today I will go lie on a blanket in the sun and take a nap. emoticon

I miss taking care of my Spark Page!

Monday, June 22, 2009

November of 2006 I found Spark People... and then everyday for the next year I logged in everyday logged my food, water, exercise, checked in with my
TEAMs commented on every message that was sent to me ect..... when suddenly I decided that I was tired of the same old routine I was tired of logging my food every morning before I could eat, I got to where I was spending so much time on line trying to respond to every one that Sparked me that I could no longer find the time to exercise. One thing led to another I stopped logging my food then I stopped eat right exercising and drinking water. It is now a year of so later and I have gained 62 pounds of the 101 pounds that I had lost! I miss Sparking but, I'm so afraid to start again for fear that I will feel overwhelmed again!!!

How could someone with all my sucess just give up on myself like this?

I miss you fellow Sparkers!!!!

    You know, I got to thinking at the beginning of summer this same stuff. I had the most success when I first started SP and was so obsessed with my teams and friends. Now two year later I'm down weight, but in the last year, I've lost nothing. I've maintained, which is great, but pretty much weigh the same.

So I decided to step back up and try thinking about other people's journeys and try to help THEM because when I helped others I lost the most. So, I'm back on helping to admin the BLC challenge, I've jumped off Purple and have a brand new team. I'm excited about leaving "everything" behind and starting over.

I injured my leg last Monday so now I can't exercise for 6 weeks. I think I can start sooner than that, but it's gotta be easy swimming and cycling stuff. But it's made me slow down, so that's actually a good thing! LOL

You can do this babe!

    I earn my Spark Time. I exercise, log my food, etc. Then I set the timer, just a suggestion, otherwise it can take up a lot of time.

I'm still doing it!

Sunday, May 03, 2009

I'm in week 5 of my Marathon training. Yesterday I jogged 6 miles. I've got 3 training days this week and then on Saturday I will be jogging 7.5 miles.

I'm having to train by myself until close to the end of June since my daughters Soccer games are right over top of my group training. I'm not going to let that hold me back. Yesterday I got up at 5 am and did my 6 miles in the poring rain to get home in time to get her to her game. I got home just in time to get a message that said the game had been canceled due to the rain. emoticon I run in the rain for and 1.5 hours at 6 am and they cancel the game. emoticon Baby's!

Anyways my food is still out of control but, I am working on it. I'm not seeing any weight loss because of it but, at least I have stopped gaining.

I'm hanging in there! emoticon

    That's amazing. I can't do more than 3 miles right now, and that's a killer. Go you!
