Ok. Here I am still going strong on my new lifestyle of eating and exercising. Down another pound....which is kind of surprising because of the dramatic weight lost of the last 2 weeks. But maybe it was just water weight? Don't know, all I know is that I am still staying motivated to keep it going. I will admit that wasn't as vigorous in my exercising this week, maybe that had something to do with it. But I will press forth and keep on my track!
To my fellow Sparkers....I hope you all have a fabulous week and the scales show favor to you!

Get the tune to that James Brown song in your heads. (I think its James Brown)
I FEEL GOOD! I FEEL GOOD! I KNEW THAT I WOULD, YEAH!. SO FINE...SO FINE.
BA BA BA BA BA WHOOOOO!
Ok, I guess you might be able to figure out that I had a very successful week in my weight loss journey! Yeah, I am proud. Proud that I was able to stick to the eating plan, proud that drank my water, exercised, and even had a good attitude while doing it! I even refused to eat the donuts THAT I BROUGHT TO WORK for everyone else to have.
But it's not just me doing this. I really have to thank God for giving me the willpower to overcome this food addiction that had me in its grip! I really do feel good!
I hope that all my Spark Buddies are doing well, and hanging in there in their journeys to healthy living! Don't give up if you had a bad week....just start all over again. I wish I had done that before I just tossed it all to the wind.

The sun is shining, the birds are singing and I am down 8 lbs!!! All is right with the world! I really feel good today. I'm off to work, pedaling my bike. It's not a long ride, but its enough to get me motivated. Downhill to work, and uphill on the way home! It's been a good week. I can honestly say, that by weighing and charting my foods, I can really see where I need improvment. I thought I had it all together by "eyeballing" my portions, but sadly, I suffer from "proportion distortion." It really is amazing to see what an actual portion looks like. And to think that fast foods sometimes offer double portions under the guise of regular! No wonder I am so overweight! But moving on and getting healthy is now my goal and I just wanted to tell all my friends to keep going....don't give up! We can do this! Have a great day everybody!

Ok, I haven't failed yet. That is a definate plus!!! Things are going well, and surprisingly, I have stepped right back into the swing of things with the weighing and measuring. I can see where I messed up so many times, when I have fallen off the wagon, so to speak. My"guesstimation" is way off the charts! Since I am an empty nester, I have time to fool with preparing my meals and counting and all that good stuff. So...I put what I would normally eat on my weight loss plan on my plate., THEN I weighed each item, put down the amounts, and transferred it to another plate. Boy! was I shocked at how much I really was putting on my plate. Seeing is believing. I guess I forgot what a "proper" serving size is! So I am not discouraged. After supper was done, I transferred my new amounts to the tracker, and saw that I really did much better the second time. I put in the first amounts as a test, and ya....it was bad. All the food, even when good and nutritious, doesn't do a bit of good if I am eating 2 or 3 times the serving sizes! Seems like a no brainer, don't ya think?
So... like I said, I am not discouraged. I am back on track and pressing forward to win this challange of the foods!

And I wish I had never left. My lack of motivation has been really really bad. I am beating myself up over it too. My clothes don't fit, which is really bad, because the last time I lost my weight, I gave away the "fat" clothes". Now I am in serious trouble! I don't have the "cushion" to prolong this any longer. I hate the way I look. I don't know why I let myself go the way I did. Yeah, I do...it's because I was just to lacadaisical to stay on track. An extra bite here, a bigger serving there, we all know how we get to where we are. But we are all in this together!!! So.. all that being said....I am going to be back on track. Starting today, its back to weighing and measuring, exercising, and really making a difference in my life. I am so embarrassed by my weight gain, I can't believe I let myself go. I think back to how much better I felt, more energy I had, I was happier....the list goes on. So enough of the pity party for me. No one wants to go to Pity Parties. It's lonely here. So...I am hoping that all my SparkPeople friends will band with me as we journey toward our common goal. Being happy, healthy and fit!!!
