busy, busy

Tuesday, August 14, 2012

just an update on my past few days. Have been working 2 16 hour shifts this weekend. My knee survived. It was hurting and swelling , but it's getting better. I am off for 4 days(need that to recover...lol) and than I will work some swing shifts. Not my favorite shift, but at least I am working.
I really like my job and the facility that I work in. Met some pretty amazing people. Just got to resist the temptation to order food out from the local restaurants.
Haven't been able to keep up with all my Spark friends lately, but will get busy on all the blogs , that I missed. Love you all.

    So glad that your knee is holding up (sort of). Sounds stressful to not know for sure that you'll get through a shift, though.

Hope the knee gets better!

    So glad you are enjoying the new job. The hours are insane though! Can you pack some healthy things to eat, so you aren't tempted to order out too often?

    So glad to hear your knee is holding up! You have had a big swing in activity level, so that has to be great news for you. Way to go!

Comparisons....

Saturday, July 14, 2012

My journey to weight loss and a happier healthier life started in January 2012. I was on medical leave for a bad knee,which required surgery . I weighed in @ 300 lbs and I was not happy with myself and I knew that I had to change the way I eat and live, if I wanted to get slimmer and healthier. My doctor told me to loose weight and offered to give me some pills to help. But I turned him down , because I know that it is only a temporary fix.
Starting Spark people was the best thing I ever done. It holds me accountable for my actions. I know I have to track my food every day, so I don't get side tracked. Some of my friends think I getting obsessed with tracking, but I don't let it bother me, because I am doing this for myself .
Here are some comparisons to my weight loss journey.
300lbs -my beginning weight


My weight now 270lbs


And this will be my goal 200lbs


I am going from a big fat catfish to a sleek pretty fish.
But the journey is not over yet.

You should feel so proud of your achievments!!!! You will reach your goal because you have decided to stay focus. People will always say things to make us stop tracking, but keep going you are on the right track!!!!
Go get that fish!!!! emoticon emoticon

    Good blog, and good for you not taking the pills from the doctor. Why do they always want to solve a problem with pills? You are doing a fantastic job, keep up the good work. emoticon emoticon emoticon
