I finally made it to the 220's I'm stoked

Tuesday, June 08, 2010

I am sooooooo happy I will tell you all I did see the 229 last summer but it was only for a couple days and not because I was eating right it was because I got sick and this time its for all the right reasons! No looking back only looking forward and this scale will only be moving down! I have noticed that I'm losing by not only the scale but also by how my clothes fit its exciting my shirts are getting to big and my shorts fit much better can't wait till they all fall off so I can buy new stuff that is way more flattering!

The biggest thing I'm doing now that is keeping my wieghtloss moving is I really stay away from the bad carbs I eat lots of protein and fresh fruits and veggies. My down falls are eating out and I am getting a little better with that but its still hard depending on where we go so I make it a point not to eat out often! My other down falls in that past have been pizza, bread and pasta and in the past 6wks I have had pizza once and if I fix my family pasta a have a bite or 2 to make sure it is done or tastes ok and that is it. I have aloud myself to have a treat here and there but don't over due it I did have ice cream yesterday from Mc Donalds they have snack size mc flurries which is still kind of a lot but it was a one day thing we don't live near a Mc Donalds (which is a very good thing) that use to be a big down fall for me when my husbands was gone alot I use to take my kids there often because is was cheap and easy but not anymore!

I'm kind of nervous about this wknd we are going camping for 4 days and I am soo excited but at the same time kind of nervous because I won't be near my scale for 3 days and camping usually bribngs on lots of munching! I have a plan tho! I plan on taking lots of fruit and protein I can eat and sticking to the not eating bread with my brauts or burgers! I have a weigh in with my Dr monday and so there are no days to make up if I screw up on the wknd and I want to be down to atleast 226 when I go weigh in so I will be trying my hardest to be as close to perfect as possible!

I'm not sure how many BLC I've been in so far but I will tell you this is my best one ever this is the best and most progress I've made in sometime!

In closing for today I will say for me its amazing how seeing a good # on the scale can make my day brighter! Can't wait to see what it says tomorrow! GO RED HOTS emoticon

    Great Job! A tip when you are camping is bring lots of water (will help curb the snacks) and since you are camping, do some hiking or biking.

    I find that I do better when we go camping that I think that I will. Maybe all the hiking and biking burn off more than I think. Good luck and great job, keep up the hard work!

    Do lots of hiking while you are camping too, and have fun, you are doing great, and you know what, the longer you go without pizza and McDonalds after awhile you are not going to want it, and it will taste nasty.

    Take lots of bottled water and stay away from the salty foods.. You have a great plan in place and half the battle is won in the planning.. Have a great time.. for us camping brings lots of exercise too so thats something to look forward too..
    We went camping over the long weekend last week and I gained but I'm pretty sure it was the few beers I drank and the pretzles... darn things are non fat but full of sodium... lol
    Nearly forgot the tell you that its great news on your weightloss... What great progress your making... woo hoo!!!!!
