If I'm going to weigh 210 by Oct. 1st I really NEED to watch every piece of food, good/bad, that I put in my mouth. When I found out I was pregnant with Ryan, I weighed 210 lbs. I had Ryan Oct. 1st and weighed 243. Since Ryan, I had another beautiful son but have not been below 210 lbs since the day I found out I was pregnant 5 years ago. I know my mini goals are do-able and probably not pushing myself as much as I should on some.
Long Term ~ My goal is to reach my pre-baby weight from 9 years ago before Mother's Day 2011. (166)
SW - 227.5 (The weight I was when I decided I NEED to do this for me!)
Short Term ~ lose 17.5 by Ryan's 5th birthday (I'll be the weight I was when I found out I was pregnant with him.)
lose 25 lbs. by Thanksgiving
lose 30 lbs. by Christmas
lose 40 lbs. by Valentine's Day
lose 50 lbs. March 28th
lose 60 lbs. by Mother's Day
I will do this, and I will do this for my benefit first and foremost and when if benefits everyone else, that will be the icing on the cake.
I've noticed after taking 10 days and doing NO exercise at all and not being conscious about what was going in my mouth that I feel like crap - slow, sluggish, depressed. I tried to eat yesterday like I should and felt super hungry all day long. I need to start doing what I know how to do and then add to it after the new habit/routine has been formed.
I am super excited about the Christmas challenge I've joined and can't wait to see if I can surpass my goal - - - even if it's only by 1 pound.
NO ONE WILL STOP ME! I AM IN CONTROL OF WHAT GOES IN MY MOUTH AND HOW LONG MY BUTT SITS ON THE COUCH!

I haven't logged anything since the beginning of January. I was doing well maintaing at 220 lbs. I never went up or down more than 1.5 pounds UNTIL June. Since June I have been as high as 231 and as low as 222.5. I have decided that Friday the 13th is as good a day as any to start anew and that is what I am doing right now! I know I can't dwell on the past and everything I've done wrong. I know I need to focus on right here and now and that is what I'm going to do. I through out all the chocolate I was saving "so if the kids wanted it there would be some for them" . . . yeah right, I hit the stash more than the kids have this summer. Okay tomorrow morning SparkPeople Nutrition Tracker and I will become best friends again and my feet will pound the pavement!
here I come!!!

Well, to my surprise, the number went down this week. I really fell off the wagon last week. I haven't logged anything and really haven't been paying to much attention to what I've been eating.
I've been really out of it since last week Tuesday and it took me until this morning to realize why. The reason - my mom left Monday from her week long visit. She lives in TX and I'm in GA and we only see her twice a year. I'm back on track now and plan to stay that way.
I know I had a couple of bad days. One day I know I didn't eat enough because I woke up at 2 am starving and the other day, I went to bed with a massive stomach ache. The good news is I didn't have any of my old comfort/pig-out foods in the house. The bad news is I found a new comfort/pig-out - Alpha-Bits cereal and skim milk! I've decided as long as the cereal is 110 calories & 2 1.5 grams of fat or less per serving then it makes for a healthy comfort/pig-out food until I learn to not be an emotional eater.
My new New Year's Resolution is to really give my best at whatever it is I am doing. I've been very consistant with losing weight since I began my new life journey on Nov. 19, 2009 but I haven't been giving it my best. I'm not going to worry about what could've or should've or would've beens. Today I'm making a fresh start!!!
My friend and I figured out the math and if I want to hit my ultimate ideal weight, I need to lose .66 lbs a week, EVERY week. I know once I get close to that weight, the weight doesn't come off as easy so I REALLY need to bust by my butt now and stop relying on 'diet' to lose small amounts of weight.
From today on, I will give my best!!
On a side note, I have to say, I lost weight over the holidays!!! and for this I have to applaud myself for all of the hard work and will power I used when it came to certain foods.
