Today has been a long day........I did my weigh in this morning I am down to 239.5, which is good. I am okay with it. I initially started out aiming for 235 that is my prepregnancy weigh and I wanted to be there for today (Its my daughters birthday) So with her being 6 years old today that was my ultimate goal. I am glad to be this close to my goal. I am truly okay with it. I think being so close to my 240 is what has me bummed. I am riding the fence here. I just want to get away from the fence. I do know that I am planning and re-evaluating for May as I type this up. I will post my plan tomorrow morning, and get started on it right away. I am working on this. I will not fail, I will not give up, I will not give in. I will succeed.

Tomorrow is my daughters Birthday and my weigh in!!!! Breathe and breathe. I am so excited because I want to see how well did I do this month. I also need to do my taping so that will be done. I am cutting off my food at 7pm tonight, I know I am in my calorie range so that is all good. I am cutting off the water intake at 10pm. So I wont eat or drink anything until after weigh in tomorrow morning. I hope to be in the 230's. We shall see, I will take 239, I dont care just get me out of the 240's. LOL I will be back tomorrow morning to report the news.

I am here doing this the right way, the way that is finally working for me, I have tried so many things in the past its a shame. I should be crowned the Diet Princess, however I would give up my title because this is a lifestyle change and not a quick and easy fix.
Things I have tried!!!!
Slim Fast- Yuck!!!! I threw up after the first bar and a shake I couldn't hang with it. This was many years ago. ( just recently tried the chocolate bar that tastes like a snickers, it wasn't bad, I could use it as a snack, thats it)
Atkins- I lost 10 lbs and quit, didnt like limiting my foods, too drastic for me. Plus right after I quit the pounds came right back with friends.
Phentermine- diet drug that was an appetite suppressant. That helped I lost 10lbs with the first week, I had slowed down to losing 2 lbs a week until I got down 20lbs, then I stopped and my appetite came back full blast. Which meant the lbs came back full blast.
Lemonade Diet- I felt too deprived of the food, just drinking the juice, seemed to be leaving me hungry, lacking my nutrients and vitamins, and just hungry. I didn't think my body would lose weight for good with that one, I just lost willpower on that one.
I have even tried to go without eating, but that didn't work. I have finally come to realize that its all about a lifestyle change, meaning take things in moderation, and exercise to balance what you put out and what you take in!!!

I was sitting here and started thinking to myself about all of the things I am noticing about me since I have started this journey.....
I finally have come to a point where I have realized that I have to do this for me and no one else. I have tried to lose weight before and I will say this again and again You cannot do this until you are ready to make the change. It wont work, it wont work, It wont work. I have tried and failed many times before only to gain more weight back and be more depressed because I was taking quick and simple ways out. I am so glad that I have come to this point and its coming off and I know its going to stay off because this is a lifestyle I can live with. Plus if I can do it, you can to. I am so glad that I am finally getting these pounds on off.
These are a few changes I have noticed about me:
Love- I am loving me even more. I am focusing on the things I need to do in order to lose this weight and putting me first, meaning we can do whatever you want to do, but I need to get my exercise first. I prefer to get my exercise done first thing in the morning, which gives me energy through the day, I have tried the evening thing and could not sleep at night. Hmm.....My confidence is building up too. I can look people more in the eye, I always look people in the eyes when I speak to them but lately I can look into the eyes of a stranger and say hello. Smile. and keep on my merry way.
Determination- I have my DETERMINATION RUNNING ON HIGH, I am so determined to do this that I am not seeing anything else. I am not saying I just exercise but this is a goal that I am looking and seeing and I refuse to get sidetracked or even but on the backburner. I am going to make my goal and I have even thought about going even further down on my numbers to 160, but I am going to keep my goal at 181 for now because that will be 100 lbs down and then I will extend my goal. Plus right now I am taking it in quarter strides. I feel like I can do anything right now. I am on this.
Support- the support I get from here is wonderful, I like how we are all going through or have been at some point the pain, the midnight cravings, the beginning, the end and the in between. So we can all work as a team. I just enjoy the support we give another and the feedback. Its truly a wonderful thing.
I am just glad that this is all working out for me. I am doing it up Big.
