    You are doing great. These challenges are great. I know they really keep me motivated. I feel like I am always pressing to meet some goal or another.

    As long as the scale moves the "right" way, that's all that matters!

Good job kiddo!

    Oh my, I started slowing down in Jan it was so hard at first and "humbling" like you said. I'm still waaaay slower than I used to be, but I've stopped paying lip service to finding new ways to find progress and REALLY had to start doing it. I do hope you get back going though, I know I want to, but in the meantime....
You are doing soooo good, I'm proud of you, hope you are proud of you too!

Everybody cry for me!!!

Sunday, March 25, 2007

I dont know what my problem is but, I feel like a time bomb waiting to go off????? I made it through the holidays without feeling picked on and deprived even with all that good holiday food around but, here it is spring and all of the sudden I want to eat everything????? I've been lucky enough not to have platued so what am I complaining about I DONT KNOW? I think what frustrates me is that I am not depriving myself of any certain food I'm just eating them in moderation or mabey picking a healthier version so what is my problem?
You know what really pisses me off? I am so close to being under 200lbs and that does not seem to be motivating enough for me why? I also was able to put on a size 18 pair of shorts today havent been that size in a while?

Alright I'm done crying! LOL

    Cut yourself some slack, kiddo!
EVERYBODY( and if they deny it they are lying) has been there more times than not. The only thing I keep in my head is that old saying " Nothing tastes as good as being thin feels."

Bought an Easter skirt,as I had nothing to wear. Took a ladies( not womens) 16 and 18 to fitting room. The 16 fit! That is why I think about how being thin( or at least thinner) feels!!!!

Can't wait to see the day my thighs won't rub in the

Have a good weekend!!
**big hugs**

    I hear you. There are many times when I just want to sit down and start eating whatever I feel like too. When I can't I feel sorry for myself. Maybe it's just spring fever. Who knows. Hope you are feeling better today.

    OMG, totally just had this convo with Troy over dinner. I feel so unmotivated and this is the first time since well, ever on this journey. And as you know I too am close to onederland. Troy's like, "that should be motivation enough." But why isn't? Maybe I should look deeper, surely there's something psychological to it, if both of you are kind of feeling the same way?!?! Hmmmm...good blog, Kristi.

    Hi Kristi,
You are SO not alone... I am trying to get out of the 200's myself, and it seems that I am pretty comfortable here! That sucks, because I have another 41 lbs to go!!

I feel your pain. My issue isn't the eating so much, but the lack of cardio. I even feel flabby!

I belive we are in Week 18 now!!

Sunday, March 25, 2007

So my body has slowed down to 2lbs per week? I cant be upset because that was the original goal anyways and at least I havent platued yet right? I think I just liked the rush of losing 3lbs a week it just made me want to jump right on my tredmill and when other people were snacking I was like NO thankyou but, now I'm like HELLO are you eating in front of me?????

Anyways good Week down 2lbs for a total of 56.5 lbs in 18 weeks!!

    I've slowed further down. In the beginning it ws 3-4 lbs per wk. Now it's a little over a pound if I'm lucky. Think I should get back on the nutrition track though! I think 2lbs a week is wonderful! I'd kill for that now, haha. Congrats on everything you are doing awesome!

Spring Fever

Monday, March 19, 2007

I'm down another 2.5lbs this week for a total of 54.5lbs however.........I have changed my weigh in day to Monday's because on April 2nd I will be starting the Sparks Biggest Loser Challange and that is the Official weigh in day, it was perfect timing because yesterday I weighed my self just out of curiosity and the scale said I had lost 1 mabey 1.5 lbs? I didnt freak out but, my attitude was definatly different then the weeks before instead of coming out and logging my daily food and exersizing I opened the fridge and ate the left over chinese food wich I have no way off tracking and the crust of my daughters Pizza? Not sure why I did this but, lucky for me there was not a lot of chinese left I then got on my treadmill and worked out but, I couldnt run because my tummy was too full and I kept getting a side cramp?????????? Why do we do this too ourselves anyways for lunch I still had my one peice of planned pizza but, I drank green juice with it and then I had BBQ chicken (bonless Skinless) and fruit to make up for my Breakfeast I also made sure that I still got in all my water so lucky me that I made my bad judgement at the first of the day and not the last and was able to save myself.

See ya next week

    I think was the day I also hogged out on chinese (although doesn't sound like your's could be termed a hog-out). You are doing awesome and last week's lost must've really got your engine revving! Good luck on the challenge!

    I know exactly what you mean. I don't do this very often to myself, but yesterday I couldn't seem to stop myself. Oh well, today is a new day and I am planning my food for the day and am determined to achieve my goal.

Here's what I do when I really want pizza: I use pita bread and then put on the tomato sauce, veggies and a little meat if you want. I add about a tablespoon of cheese and throw it in the over. It is really quick and you feel like you have had a great treat.

Good luck today. You are already doing so well - oh yeah, congrats on the lost weight. Where did you find the biggest loser forum?

Have a great day.

    Good recovery! I've been able to do things liek this a lot less, but I guess it's just going to happen sometimes. I think the key is to let it go and not beat yourself up over it.

Best Week Ever

Sunday, March 11, 2007

Ok so I'm doing better this week it was not as hard as the last 2 weeks and I am down another -4lbs this week YEA ME, that is a total of 52lbs in 4 mo. I've got another 78lbs to go until I reach my goal. 9lbs until I'm under 200, 13lbs until I hit my 1/2 way point 35lbs until I am no longer obease and 63lbs until I am not longer over weight. And my new Goal reached date is December 9th. So as you can see I have a lot of numbers and goals I will be hitting and completing in the next month or two I am so EXCITED!!! This week I ate at the top of my Calorie ranges but, I'm not sure if that's what did it or if it is because aunt flo left town? At the starting of the month I added back 5 cups to my water intake per day (in the 2nd mo. I was drinking 20 cups of water per day) in the 3rd mo. I cut it back to 15 (this mo. I took it back up to 20 per day) and I lost 12lbs this month v. 10lbs last mo. who knows.

I will be posting new photo's sometime tommorrow so dont forget to check them out.
Thanks for reading my posting and see you next week!

    Congrats on the weight loss. That's so exciting.

I have been wondering about the water issue. I started out drinking about 14-16 glasses a day. Then someone said don't drink too much, so I cut back to 10-12. However, the weight loss also slowed down. I have been debating upping my water intake again. I think you have just convinced me.
