Severe Weather in AR

Tuesday, April 26, 2011


Got some video of the ominous clouds, but the aren't nearly as creepy recorded as they were in person! the lower clouds and the higher clouds were moving in different directions... you can't really see that in this, I reckon I moved the camera too much. It's calm now, but we're still under a tornado watch.. we have more to look forward to tonight.

    I live in Arkansas, too. We rode out the storms in the hallways of St. Vincent's Infirmary in Little Rock while the tornadoes tore down trees at my house. I haven't been home yet to see the damage. I'm going home tomorrow morning for a little while, I'll see it then. I'm praying for all those folks in Vilonia and other parts of the state that have been devastated over the past two days.

I hope that you didn't suffer any damage.

Week 6 on WW

Saturday, April 23, 2011

OMGosh, it's been one of those weeks. I have been emotional, weepy, forgetful, worried, and occasionally elated... go figure... tom's here this week, too. Oh really? I couldn't tell. **sigh** ;)

So much for my intentions on NOT using the weekly points last week. I used up every one of them! And I was so scared to weigh in... with tom, all the eating, all the issues. I just knew it was going to blow.

But I did it.... and to my sheer surprise, lost 2.5 lbs. So I am finally back on the weight loss wagon. That made me happy.

Also, what happened that was good this week: my daughter did well on an oral book report and was entered into the book pageant where she has to dress up and act out a little part of something from the book along with giving her report again... She's Arya from Eragon. :) and she looked adorable. I should've got a pic! Dang... just another forgetful thing. I will when she does this again for the pageant.

I also finally tried the Hula workout I got from Netflix... wow, that is some workout and I CAN DO IT! I can do those moves. Now... I didn't finish the workout cause I got pooped. But I really liked it a lot, so I ordered it from Amazon. :) Can't wait for it to come in (I would have just copied the one from Netflix, but my burning software is on the fritz... besides, the DVD was just $5.)

Anyhow, I'm really hoping next week is much better than this week was!

Week 1: -5 (5)
Week 2: -5 (10)
Week 3: -4.5 (14.5)
Week 4: +6.5 (8)
Week 5: -6 (14)
Week 6: -2.5 (16.5)

Week 5 on WW

Sunday, April 17, 2011

I had a grand day with my daughter today. All we did was go shopping at several places, but she loved it... trying on clothes and stuff like that. She got her first "real" purse today (from the ladies' dept) and we bought a lot of pretties to make it HERS. We did that this evening after a terrific supper of grilled burgers & chips. Ever had a jalapeno burger? it's delicous, especially with fresh grilled pineapple. YUM!

Anyhow her purse is coming along nicely.

The rest of my family had a great time airsofting. It was my oldest daughter's first time and hubs said on the first game round with her first shot she took out a seasoned player! LOL! When they got home, she changed the oil in her car (with Dad's guidance, but she requested to know how to do it.) Smart girl. :)

Weigh in today was down. So, I got all but 1/2 lb of that horrid gain gone, but I was hoping for better. I wanted to show a genuine loss. :/

oh well... when will I learn that pizza the night before weigh ins usually results in undesirable numbers. I will do better next week. I plan on not using any of the weekly points... just the daily. Plus keeping on with the water and maybe even a little exercise this week. I just got a Hula Dance workout video from Netflix and I'm looking forward to doing that. :)

Week 1: -5 (5)
Week 2: -5 (10)
Week 3: -4.5 (14.5)
Week 4: +6.5 (8)
Week 5: -6 (14)

Week 4 on WW

Saturday, April 09, 2011

Well, did I really expect to continue to lose 5 lbs per week? Really now... one had hopes, but last week I didn't do anything right to lose any weight whatsoever. Matter of factly... I"m genuinely scared to step on the scale for fear of gain. I've yet to even take a peek.

See, last week I seemed to be so hungry. I didn't go over points.... until Thursday that is. And I went way over. When I mess up, I mess up big... and I seem to do it doubles. The first mess up: Chinese Buffet. I didn't have a plan when I went in, other than my mind set that I need to make sure I get my money's worth. :/ The second mess up was pizza last night. I did have plan there. I have eaten pizza every Friday night this whole time... and still lost weight, but some old stinkin' thinkin' invaded my brain... "oh well, I messed up this week already, might as well and eat as much pizza as I can hold and start over tomorrow" and my plan went bye-bye.

So, here I am this morning, feeling very heavy, bloated and swollen (I retain water very easily) and scared to weigh. I gain much more easily than I lose.

Are these feelings I'm having now... feelings of failure, fear of the scales, and total disappointment with myself... worth pigging on pizza or "getting my money's worth" at a Chinese buffet? Completely, totally, and absolutely NOT. So.. why in the world did I do it? ugh. I lost focus. I didn't think past the food or the moment.

Oh well. I screwed up, wasn't the first time, won't be the last... I need to see what kind of damage I did, suck it up, and fix it.

Going to weigh now (long pause here that you won't notice.)

Its worse than I thought. I'm up 6.5 lbs. But no tears here. I would definitely kick my own butt, literally, if I could, but what I can do is get mad, get back on track, and get off this excess weight as fast as possible. I'm pretty certain that it's manly fluid retention. So... this week's goal is to rid myself of that, and lose a little more to boot.

Last week I was 14.5 lbs down, by next Saturday I want to be at least 16 lbs down total. I can do this.

4-10 update... I weighed this morning and I'm already back down by 3 lbs!!!

    I too have had those feelings!

I notice with myself that if I lose really fast, I gain back really fast. I have totally approached this WW thing with the mentality that it will take time. And it has. Don't worry about that gain, it's prob water and that comes off pretty easily. One day at a time. No self hate. Just do what you know is right, and it will come off.


You are doing awesome! Just awesome. One bad week is nothing you can't handle!

    Hang in there! You will see a difference over time, we all mess up here and there, can't be perfect. Today is a new day, and each day is. I am sure that you are having far fewer mess up days than what you used to have. We are not only getting thinner, we are getting stronger and healthier!

    You're right, you can do this!!! I have been in that same place more times than I care to recount - where the plan goes out the window and in it's place is such a strong yearning for the food (Chinese buffet? I've never successfully made it out of that place without "gettin my money's worth"!!) that you go into a full-out pig-out, all the while soothing yourself with "It'll be okay, I'll just start over tomorrow." The nasty feelings, both physical and emotional, that you're left to deal with "tomorrow," though, just aren't worth it. I have to constantly remind myself to mentally stay in control, especially if I eat something off plan, that as long as I don't slip into the all-or-nothing thinking and I can be in control of my choices, then I know I'll be okay the next day. It ishard to take control your thoughts and stop that "stinkin thinkin", cuz we have so many years of doing it the wrong way that we naturally slip right into that mode. But if we keep our head in the game at all times, we can do it!

Wishing you all the best for a successful week!!

Week 3 on WW

Saturday, April 02, 2011

This week I felt like I had gained weight. I have been feeling heavy, bloated, not been drinking my water like I should, and I feel like I've been eating the door off the fridge. So much so that I was even scared to do my sneak weigh in mid week and I was scared this morning, too. But I did it, and imagine my surprise at what I discovered..... I lost 4.5 lbs since last Saturday! Yes!!!!!

Week 3 loss - 4.5 lbs
Total loss so far - 14.5 lbs

    Great!!! When you figure out what you did right, let me know, maybe it will work for me too? I would be so shocked if I would lose that much in one week. Keep up the great work! You will be at your goal in no time!
