Sick of others success.... My turn!!!

Sunday, September 08, 2013

After being on another path for too long I have come back. I have hit my highest weight end of August and been so depressed! I am also no longer a member of my gym, I am an assistant manager!!! I need to lose this weight for me, my kids, hubby, and to show people at the gym that if I can do this that anyone can! Honestly I am so sick of hearing about everyone else's success stories because I just want to be one! Well, yesterday my husband finally confronted me telling me that he has seen my weight gain over the past few years and to him it doesn't bother him but he knows that I am upset. I cried so hard! I am my own worst enemy and too hard on myself and not others!!! Also, I am the Queen of excuses!!! So no more excuses... this begins now!!!

    Start with setting a few small goals: track 5 out of 7 days, do 10 minutes of exercise daily, drink a single glass of water, etc...

Then as you conquer each small goal you can make them bigger: 20 minutes exercise daily, 2 glasses of water, etc

    I think my words are coming out of your mouth! I have also been full of excuses: no time, too tired, too hot, I don't feel like it, and the list goes on. I'm trying to build up active friends & be present here on Spark to help support my positive changes. Let's see how we do!

Keeping the game going

Tuesday, November 01, 2011

Well this is a continous game! I keep coming back here saying that I am back and then vere away when something else comes up! Promise though Spark People has stuck to me in other ways as in making me a better person and working on my marriage. I never thought that when I started Spark People back in July I would loose so my focus on my weight, but have gained so much more in many other areas of my life. I have started going back to church and now completly immersed into that and the connections through there, well my marriage is amazing and I am feeling like a better person!!!! However, now that I have found the inner me, now I have to find the outter me. The person who can keep up with her kids and feel sexy and doesn't mind looking at herself in the mirror or in pictures. Also, my husband and I want to have one more little one and well I feel God wanted us to first work on our marriage and maybe now he will allow us to have another little one, however, I know my weight is an issue to and not eating healthy so I want to eat healthier to allow my body to have another baby and then my goal is this time to not have gestational diabetes and when I have our final addition to loose the weight asap so I can get around easier and have a better mentality. If you are reading this please (if you want) add me as a friend so we can keep each other going because trust me I am going to need everyone lol!!!Well tomorrow I am going to toss the dice again and get my game on.....

10# down but tough weekend....

Monday, July 25, 2011

Hey I have lost 10# in the past 2 weeks!!! I am so excited! This weekend was tough. After I measured (lost 7.5in overall) and then did my WI well it was that time of the month for me and then I didn't have the time to go to the gym and honestly did do extra activity at home. Basically, I took the weekend off from exercise, but did really good with my diet. However, I was so down and depressed this weekend that I couldn't get to the gym. LOL Never thought that would be me. So, tonight after work and dinner I am proud to say that I am going to go to the gym! Wooo hooo!!! Also, my body is starting to want water a lot more! I guess these are two of the changes that "The Spark" book mentions.... I think that things are really changing in me! I keep telling myself that it was ok to take the weekend off because I have done so much and my body needed the rest with getting my well you know what! However, that negative part is still trying to pull me down! But the weekend is now done and I can't wait to get to the gym tonight! Oh, I might be getting the transfer that I want to a closer store to my house and instead of me having all wacky hours and having to work weekends to get some hours cause I had to drive 25miles to work well I will be working M-F 5am-10am and 2miles from home so I can go to the gym on weekends if I get the job. Tomorrow is the interview! I can do this!

    Congratulations on the weight loss. It sounds like your body needed a couple days to adjust to the quick weight loss, so don't get too down on yourself for taking a couple days off. Keep up the great work!

Saturday, July 16, 2011

I am stoked... I lost 6#! I deserve it though because I busted my butt this week by going to the gym and then staying within the Spark plan! So, this week I am going to add in some at home exercises to rock this week! GO ME! GO ME!

  


The De-Everything from my life...

Friday, July 01, 2011

Well a lot has been going on the past few days... Today is a new beginning for me, my family, and a clean slate for my husband and I! Lets put it this way... I reached my breaking point yesterday! Well, the 11th of July is still going to be my start day to a healthier life, but I do know that some other changes need to take place. For example, no eating in front of tv or computer, need to have dinner with family at the table a few times a week, get up and get moving in the morning, etc! So, I will start this today! I will weigh in for an intial start weight on the 11th and I am going to weigh back in on October 11th (3 mo) for a hopeful 60 lbs weight loss. Then I will reasess my weight and hopefully at my next weigh in January 11th I will loose 40lbs and then by my birthday on March 11th to loose the last 20lbs. Def. by Mother's day 2012 I want to have made a complete change from where I am now. I will make daily entry into this blog and its going to be to Chris Powell from Extreme Makeover:Weightloss Edition cause I am going to need to have someone hold me accountable... Ok.. Here it goes! Talk to you all soon!

    Well I decided to start today. Went to the gym this morning and wow I kicked butt... this past week had its ups and downs but I am feeling really good about this today! It's amazing all the stressers in our life... But I am using the gym as part of my out! LOL I am also going to keep the journal for Chris Powell so that it will hold me accountable and then sent it to him one day! So hopefully I can go now 3 months w/o weighing myself! This is going to be one of the hardest challenges of my life but I really feel that I am up to it! Here it goes...
