I tend to dwell on the things I can't do because I'm fat... Lucky for me, exercise is not one of them. Did an awesome 65 minutes on the elliptical today and felt amazing afterwards. Low calorie intake today too makes me hope for the best on weigh in day. However, watching the biggest loser and reading blogs makes me think about all the things I wish I could do...
This past Sunday my work sponsored a day at Great America. They rent out the whole park for just our work and let you have your day of fun for really cheap. However, I didn't go. I see no point in wasting the money if I can only go on half to a third of the rides. Its embarrassing enough trying to go through a turnstile or sit on a bus seat with someone, much less fit on a ride with them. This is something I would LOVE to do when I lose weight.
Another thing I would love to do is go see a concert or a show. When we were in Las Vegas I was so afraid of going to see a show because I was scared I wouldn't fit in the seats. Its happened before (luckily we were on an end and the end seat was a little wider than the middle ones) and I do not want it to happen again. I want to go and enjoy a concert/show and not be worried that I can't even fit.
Something I should have done is joined a SP biggest loser challenge. I looked at the rules and whatnot and thought "I don't know if I can do this." WHAT WAS I THINKING?!?!?! Now I'm regretting not doing it and have to do it on my own. Hmph.
Grr. If this isn't motivation, I don't know what is!
Watched a lot of weight loss shows tonight to get me motivated as well. First I watched Heavy on Netflix while I organized my file cabinet. That show, like the Biggest Loser, is motivational, but leaves you feeling like you should be losing more. 100+ pounds in six months is NOT normal. These are circumstances where they work out 5+ hours a day... and have food made for them...who has the time for that?! Not me. Not anybody I know. So I'll stick with what I'm doing and I'll see results... just may take a while! Can't wait to watch next weeks BL though! Ramon is already a favorite :-)

So my last blog was kind of negative nancyish but I was just in that mood for some reason. I weighed in today and was at 321, down two more pounds. I am looking forward to Sunday's weigh in already hoping to be in at 319. Oh, that would be fantastic. On track for my goal of 300 by xmas! Its definitely going to take some effort during the holidays but nothing I can't handle.
Just checking in with my weight lose for the week and now I'm off to bed. G'night Sparkies.

In one month I lost 14 pounds. The last time I start to exercise and lose weight it took me three months to lose that. YAY!! It felt like it took forever but it really didn't and went by so fast.
Last time I did the weight loss thing I didn't count calories and it helps, so much! I went a little overboard on calories last weekend, because of a birthday party and being out of town I wasn't able to track as well and it drove me NUTS. At least now that I'm home and can see what I'm eating with the calories included it helps me so much more.
I am going to up my exercises this week to 60 minutes a day on the elliptical. I also need to drink more water. Its hard to do with my job because I'm technically not supposed to leave my desk (weird, i know, but I take phone calls and it's super busy this time of year). Luckily, I work out of my house and because my boyfriend is currently laid off, he can get me things if I need it.
So 14 pounds in one month. Is that average? Good? Bad? I suppose thinking two pounds a week, four weeks is eight pounds... that's good I guess. My main question is when did you start losing your inches? After two months? So many pounds? I know everyone is going to be different but I'd like to know when to expect SOMETHING. My pants feel like they might be a LITTLE looser, but not enough for anyone else to notice. I want to have people say "WoW! Look at you!!" Hopefully soon.

I was cleaning my room the other day and came across an old journal from middle/high school. After reading it for a while I came to a section that I talked about how I was so fat and how I had to lose weight and this and that. I kept reading and on 1/4/01 (freshman in HS) I stated that I weighed 214 pounds. At that time, in HS, that was big, it still is. Right now, I would LOVE to get down to that again. That's over 100 pounds away. It feels so very,very far away.
