WOW 60 Pounds

Monday, June 14, 2010

Wow I never thought that I would ever loss 60 pounds and I have actually lost 63 pounds. I still would like to loss about 40 more and with the help of SP I know I can do it. I went to the doctor today and my blood presser went from 131/72 to 104/68. I hope my cholesterol went down to. My doctor had some many nice thing to say to me today, that I left filled with so much pride and motivation. I can't wait to see her next year and be even more healthier.
Thank you SP friends for your support and my family there is no words to express how I feel about all of you. THANK YOU!!!!!
See you at 70 pounds. emoticon

I went on vacation last month and did pretty good there. Did a lot of walking so I didn't gain weight, but I was use to doing regular exercise that when I came back I haven't been able to get myself back on track. I also what to snack at night for some reason. I was also having trouble getting back to a good sleep pattern, but I think that is almost under control. Naturally I'm a night owl and I changed by getting up earlier and going to bed earlier, but on vacation I was a night owl so now I'm not getting up as early. This effect eating three meals and a snack a day, which I think make me want to eat at night. I tried setting my alarm but then I'm tired all day and don't workout very well. I have never had so much trouble going back to my regular routine before. Is it because I'm getting older???? If anyone has any suggestion please Help!!! I am getting frustrated and wasting a month of weight loss. emoticon

    Honestly hon I think your mind is stuck on frustration to begin with. Take a look at your thoughts and see if you are simply fretting too much. That will cause most of this.

Back from my trip! Lost or Gained ?

Monday, April 26, 2010

Well I'm back from Vegas and the scale is calling me. I get out of bed and slowly walk to the bathroom. Should I or shouldn't I ? Oh what the hack its not going to change the number no matter how long I stand here, so get on. I step on the scale the numbers are going up and down before it stops I close my eyes. I start to get nerves, with my eye shut I say to myself should I look or get off. I then yell out loud YOU CHICKEN!! Open your eyes as I do I look down and see a number I can't quite believe. This can't be right. I get off and then get back on. The numbers go up then down and finally stop, it was right. I lost a pound and a half. I can't believe it. Lose weight on vacation. That's a first for me. I did try to make good chooses, but I also had more then I should have. You know what they say . What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas.
I was there with my sisters Celebrating my 50th Birthday and half way point in my weight loss.
We had a fabulous time seeing shows, buying out all the shops, basking in the sun and checking out all the Casino's. Don't forget eating at the good restaurants. We did put on alot of miles and I took the steps when ever possible. So I guess I should be afraid of vacation.
Here to next time!!!!

I would give you a real picture but I forgot my camera emoticon emoticon

Dare To Dream

Thursday, April 15, 2010

When I started my journey in October 2009 at 266 pounds all I could dream about was to just loss a few pounds and exercise so that I may live longer then my Mom and my Mother in law.
I lost my mom seven years ago, she was always pledged with different illness. She wasn"t extremely over weight, just under 200 at 5 foot 5inches. She has a bad heart. Then just short of a year a go I lost my mother in law. It was so sudden, she was never a sick day in her life. We had a full autopsy done and all they could say is she was obese.
That began the journey of me thinking I need to do something. That October I found Sparks.
Today after losing over 50 pounds my dream is still to become as healthy as possible, but I also dream that maybe some day I can wear a size 12 pant. emoticon
I haven't seen that since I was in high school. Do I dare to dream so vainly? Could it be possible? Maybe even smaller. The sky is the limit. That how this time around in my quest to loss weight is different. This time it more then weight it life. If I want to be here and live a long life I need to do this, for me for my husband and my son.
So I say to everyone out there DARE TO DREAM!!! emoticon

Have a Great Weekend.

    Yes dare to dream. If we didn't dream how would we get anywhere in life. In high school we dream about college and the career we want, we also dream about finding our soul mate, getting married and having children. Dare to dream that is the only way you are going to get anywhere in life.

Take care.

Las Vegas Baby

Saturday, April 10, 2010

I'm so excited need week I'm going to Las Vegas with my sisters. I'm looking forward to wearing sparkly cloths and sunning emoticon by the pool. I can't believe I just said that. I love the sun, but it wasn't long ago that the only place I would sun tan was on my deck. I wouldn't wear a bathing suit infront of anyone not even my husband. Don't get me wrong I still am not a bathing beauty, but I don't think they will yell (whale on the beach). LOL I plan to wear my now size 16 compared to size 24 bathing suit with pride. I also am going to do something else I would not do before, take lots of picture with my sisters. This trip is my first real reward since I have been on this journey to better myself. Now that I think about it in the past when I would DIET I would reward myself with a sweet treat. This time is different I'm not on a DIET, I'm on a life changing venture. Not once have I thought of rewarding myself, because I feel this change has been my reward. I have never felt so good. I have been thin before, but never have I had the energy, zest for life as I do now. God has really reward me with his help on this journey. My whole family is benefiting . I like to Thank everyone at Sparks emoticon your storys, encouragement and all the positive feedback has truly blessed me.
Well Vegas better watch out because here we come.
emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
(The four of us)
