Yesterday's blog was after midnight, so I guess that it was posted as today...oh well. I slept well last night & the scale smiled at me...two lbs. lost...every little bit helps to keep me motivated. I am doing OK today, but I have to tell you. It is after 5 P.M. & I am still in my nightgown (I have a bra on...that way I feel like I just have a very long T-shirt on ) ANYway...I weighed in, tracked my food, made healthy food choices, but did not exercise...that always seems to be the last thing I think about doing. I did get a lot of Christmas stuff done...wrapped packages & did some cards & I still need to get to the P.O. & store. I need to work on the nightgown thing...even though I do some of my best work in it...cooking, cleaning...& you thought that I was going to say the bedroom, right?...NOT!!! Haha...Anyway, my plan is to get up in the morning, put on workout clothes, exercise, eat breakfast & then shower. I know that some of this stuff sounds like small stuff, but in many ways, I feel that it holds me back from what I really need to do...good sleep & plenty of it...get dressed, water, exercise, water, move, water...weigh, track & blog...that's all for now. I also need to spend less time on my laptop...too easy to become a couch potato. Thanks for all your encouragement. Take care...

I said started...Yesterday, Monday was not a great day...I DID walk for almost 30 min. & I DID weigh in & I DID drink lots of water, but I didn't do as well tracking... breakfast & lunch was good & dinner was pretty healthy. I get together with two girlfriends every Mon. eve. & it was my night to bring the snacks...I sort of went overboard...took a veggie tray, a fruit tray, chips & dip, cookies & meatballs. I had a little bit of each & felt guilty, because I had already had a chicken wrap at Wendy's for dinner...so I wasn't eating because I was really hungry...I was being sociable... basically that is BS. I never bought the Peer Pressure scene. One of my girlfriends is slim & in good shape. The other is very heavy & is more like Misery Loves Company. Neither of them would pressure me to eat or drink anything, so I'm not about to blame them. But on that same note, it would not be wise for someone like me to get a job in a bakery...like an alcoholic getting a job in a bar. Why set yourself up? I did not exercise today, unless you count the millions of steps that I took, while Christmas shopping & the getting in & out of my car a zillion times. I had my water bottle with me & had to keep stopping at places to pee Once as I jumped out of the car, really needed to go, I darn near hung myself...it is always a good idea to take off your seat belt before exiting your car I tracked my food this morning, but pushed myself to shop without stopping for lunch, so I ate a small bag of cookies at Toys R Us & then about 5:30, I decided to stop at Jimmie John's & picked up two sandwiches (one for my husband...who does NOT need JJ sandwiches either) I'm hungry right now, but I think that I'm just tired, so I think that I will go to bed instead of grazing in the kitchen...I keep asking myself...how did I get back here. It is somewhat ironic that when I weighed in yesterday, I weighed the exact amt. that I weighed when I first started SP...248 whopping pounds...OMG. OK, enough venting...I am off to bed. Take care, y'all...have a good week...

My last blog was Sept. 29th...not proud of that...it's just a fact. It has been almost 3 months since I checked in. My daughter was engaged for almost 14 months & I had PLENTY of time to get my act together & to lose a substantial amt. of weight ...not sure what that number is. The make-up & hair people worked absolute MIRACLES & I received many compliments that I looked wonderful, "stunning" & beautiful. Jan-Marie got married on Nov. 15th...she was an OMG gorgeous bride...the entire day was magical. The camera doesn't lie..even though I was a happy MOB, I was not thrilled with many of the wedding pictures that showed me to be huge. It is not even like I really NEED another reason to lose weight & get healthy, but there is no time like the present. I am kidding myself if I said that I was back on the wagon. I've been dragging my feet & making excuses as I go. I get on the scale every morning & am disappointed every day. I have no one to thank or blame but myself. It is SO difficult to "start over" or reconnect with a healthy lifestyle...I always say...tomorrow is a new day & I know that it is, but it is difficult. I am almost exactly at the same weight as I was when I started SP back in 2011. I am a big believer in the slogan, One Day at a Time & I really believe that you can do just about ANYthing for 24 hrs. Plan for tomorrow? Weigh In, Track My Food, Drink a minimum of 8 glasses of water & Exercise 30 minutes...& SO SP friends...esp. my dear daughter, Jan-Marie, once again, I will thank you in advance for your love & supportive comments as I get back on this journey. Take care & have a great week...

I am so out of sorts...I have not been binging, etc. I just have not been making my SP check in a serious priority...Hope to do better...weighed in this morning, tracked my food & now here I am. My daughter, Jan-Marie gets married in about 8 weeks. We have two Bridal Showers under our belt & now I just need to tighten my belt & hunker down to get through the wedding (Seriously, how many of us, full size girls/women wear belts???) ANYway, I didn't fall off the wagon...I am running along side it, hanging on with both hands...but hey, that counts as exercise, right? I need to get off this laptop & get some stuff done & it is beautiful outside, so I need to take a bike ride. Take care, y'all & thanks in advance for your support. Have a great week. Fill it with love & laughter...

My daughter, Jan-Marie is getting married in Nov. but starts a new job in Michigan on Sept. 8th & will be moving there this Friday. I haven't checked in much this week. I was out of town Mon. - Wed. last week, helping JM look for a house to rent & did not get any exercise or tracking done...It showed on the scale...had almost a 3 lb. gain. I made many foolish choices this past week, eating junk, but today I managed to track, weigh & blog. I went to the store & bought a load of healthy food & feel that I have turned my attitude around to where it should be. Thank you in advance for your support. Take care & enjoy this Labor Day weekend...
