October 5 2012--lesson learned....

Friday, October 05, 2012

Okay, I took a HUGE break from exercising and dieting, since April , i had gotten lazy, not so much with the exercising part but with the whole healthy eating part. When I seen 121 show up on the scale i thought alright i can eat whatever whenever, but the scale kept jumping from 121-123 then ended up sticking around 126 , so i was fine with that because i was within 10 pounds of my sp goal.My battery operated scale broke and i had no way of keeping track of my weight so i thought, i can do this...I dont need a scale, i am satisfied where i am at and dont care if i dont loose , i just dont want to bee at 166 ever again so i started eating.and eating. exercising most days but i cut back a lot.Then reality really hit me this past weekend when i jumped on the scale and it read 136...i was so mad i let eating one again get out of control and made a pledge to myself to get back to 126, so now thats what i am doing again, i am so glad to have spark or else i wouldn't know what to do.SO this week i began eating a lot of fresh fruits, drinking a lot of water, and set a new goal for myself (new beginning new goal) i almost eliminated all my soda drinking, since sunday i only had 3 cans of coke zero which is my true weakness, i dont think i could ever get rid of it .The way i grew up soda was just always the drink of choice and so never cared too much for water , but since they have all this flavored water now, i gave it a shot.I have been using flavored enhancer called MIO?? I dont have a lot of information about it, just gives water a flavor which helps me, if anyone knows if it is actuallly not good to drink, please let me know, i am hoping that if i slowly add less and less i can evently drink water without flavor...more than i do know ,i usually only drink about 2 bottles of water a day, but with the mio, i have been drinking up to 5!!!.TOday is friday and i am happy to say that i weighed in at 134 loosig 2 pounds this week, hopefully it gives me the motivation to keep going.

    MIO isn't bad, as far as flavorings go. I mean, ideally, you should be drinking plain water. But MIO is a good option if it gets you drinking your water. And its MUCH better than soda. You can do this! I have faith in you!

  If you can loose the pop and increase the water but do it gradually

Today is my 22nd week on spark!!!

Thursday, December 22, 2011

It gets hard when you work so hard and you dont get the results you want, I know I said that the last 10 pounds were gonna be the hardest, but man, they are brutal, I have been checking my weight daily, i see my weight will go up on the weekends, i think it is water weight due to me not exercising the last few weekends, but im not gonna sweat it. i know i am doing the best that i have ever done for myself than i have in years, i am sticking to it, and yeah just like everyone else i do make unhealthy choices but i know how to balance my eating habits, i do give into temptation but in moderation, and what works best for for getting to 117 by june 29,2012...not sure if i will ever get there but i will try to get close as i possibly can and stay is hard work , i know its only seven pounds away but its a long way away for me....i hope everyone else is doing great, stay on track and we can meet our goals together!!!!

    At this point in your weight loss, even when you do EVERYTHING right, things are going to slow down. Its inevitable when you're this close to goal. Get started on the strength training and focus on losing inches instead of pounds. And realize its all going to take a lot more time now. Don't let it get you down! You're doing so amazing!! Have a great Christmas! emoticon

Week 20- 8 pounds left to meet my SP goal!!!!

Friday, December 09, 2011

Can't believe that I finally got off 128, it took me 2 weeks but it happened .Last week i was so frustrated about seeing 128 again, i think i over exercised, hurting my weight loss.On last Friday, i want to see the scale drop to 127 because i was 128.2 that i exercised a total of 180 minutes that day...Saturday morning I woke up still at 128....I was so mad at myself...I thought that this was it..its over,I couldn't loose anymore...So I said i am not going to waste my day away exercising, I am going to go back to my old schedule, just to maintain my weight and not get any bigger..I did cardio, in the morning for 60 minutes, then cardio in the evening for 30..Kept with it not expecting results and yesterday morning i woke up jumped on the scale and to my surprise i was 126!!!omg!!! i couldn't believe it, and now i am totally motivated again...Over the last 20 weeks i have played around with my exercise schedule and now am convinced 90 minutes a day is what i need to drop the lbs..I have been walking around the last 2 weeks with only 2 good pairs of pants that fit me..although baggy not so bad that they are falling off...still wearable but nevertheless was not gonna give into buying anything new to wear til i got to 125...(maybe some sweatpants if i didnt loose any??)well since i got there this morning, i am ready..if i am still there tomorrow(maybe some kind a fluke with my scale??) gonna buy something to reward myself not a whole wardrobe or anything , just something to make me feel good about the hard work i have been putting in..Dont get me wrong, i know i am only 8 pounds away from the sp goal that was set for me, I still have a lot of work to do...i do still have the belly bulge, not as bad as it was 40 pounds ago, but still enough to wear one of those stomach slimmer things under a nice shirt...i am added in a lot of ab workout to my schedule. and kinda worried about the whole"loose skin" thing i hear people talk about...but not gonna be walking around naked anytime soon long as i look a healthy size,and alright with clothes on....its alright with me....hehehe!!!just thought to add that in...oh...and i dont think i will be getting into a bikini either...ever!!!! emoticon emoticoni am going to start adding some more strengthening exercising in hopefully can tone me up a little, even though i am 125 there is still flab and a lot of work to be done so i do have a long way to go..anyways i hope to see everyone in another week...keep blogging i love reading them and miss them when a lot of you stop....Have a happy and healthy day!!!!and a great weekend!!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

week 19 --December 1 2011

Thursday, December 01, 2011

well, today i hopped on the scale hoping i was gonna be at 127, well, it didnt happen, still at 128 but feeling alright about it, it could have been worst....could have gained emoticon...I am okay with it..I added it some ab workouts to go along with my exercising, getting into that size 6 encouraged me..i also met my goal of loosing 5 pounds in November...I havent been able to get into a size 6 for about 10 even though there wasn't a lot of weight loss this week... .4 matter...still feel accomplished.In the past this would have been where i gave up, but not this time, i am going to keep going and hopefully make it to 127 next Thursday...Good day to all, and have a great weekend!!!
