Things are...looking up!

Saturday, March 01, 2008

Well, after my sort of melt down on the 24th, I reevaluated a lot of things. I also worked really hard at tracking food, although I admit I missed a day. Tracking my food bite for bite has really opened my eyes to how much extra I was consuming. All the little bites sure add up to a BIG bite! I am starting to feel better. I already am seeing the scale go down, so I hope that by my next weigh in on thurs. that I am at 149.8. That is my one week goal. For the first time in a while, I feel like getting under 150 is possible. If it doesn't happen however, I still will be proud if the scale even moves down slightly.
On another note, I had a yearly doctors appt. yesterday. He told me that he thought that I was in good shape. my blood pressure was also at 108/64. hurray. It is always nice to have a doctor tell you that they think you are in good shape!

Why is it anyway?

Sunday, February 24, 2008

I am trying really hard to figure out why it is so much harder for me to lose weight this time around. The last I lost a significant amount of weight, I was in college of all places. Shouldn't that have been harder? Now I am married and am struggling to lose more then a couple pounds. I am losing and gaining those same freaking pounds too!

I have pinned it down to what I am eating. That has to be the problem! I work out 4 days a week pretty hard, so I just don't see it being my work outs. I think I really need to try to be even more accountable for what I am eating. I am think I am going to have to start planning all my food choices out the night before and just stick to my plan. I thought fitting in exercise would be the hard part, but really, it turns out to be eating properly. I know I can do this, I know I can!! I really want to succeed as I have so many reasons to coming up. OH, I am also going to make my food hournal available for all to read. ..Good, bad, is all going to be out there.

Getting closer!!

Sunday, March 04, 2007

Wow, so it has really been a long time since the last blog! Well, after the holidays I was back up to my starting weight, or almost anyway, so I revised my strategy, added workouts and am doing great! I broke into the 140's which is awesome. I want to get down t oaround 145 by the end of March because then my sister can adjust my wedding dress to fit me at that weight. My wedding is mid-may! Yeah I am so excited. So, not only is my big day getting closer, but so is my goal.


Slowly but surely

Well I have been here at spark for a little over 2 months and have lost 4lbs. Not a huge amount (only .5lbs/week) but at least I am seeing progress I guess. It is better then not budging. At this rate, by next May I will be down to where I want to be for my wedding and honeymoon. Probably actually before then. I have been picking up more and more exercise to add to my plate. I am a little worried about winter though, the only thing I will probably be able to do outside on a fairly regular basis is running. Something I do once in a while, but isn't exactly a favorite thing. I am also not a member of a gym cause I have a tight budget right now. So I am just kind nervous. I think I am gonig to have to start doing workout videos this winter. I know it is only just about August, but I like to plan ahead. Heck, I start X-mas shopping in Sept.!


Is it just me?

So this always happens when I try to control and change my eating habits. I feel like I start to eat out a lot. But then I think about it and come to the conclusion that maybe I have always eaten out this much, but it is more evident now that I kinda wanna watch what I eat.
Things are going ok. I am still working on consuming less calories, but I am guessing that this will get better over time.
