Third time's the charm right? <BR> <BR> Since I last fell behind in my weight loss journey I have switched jobs and gotten off the medication that was causing my weight gain and the issues I was having losing weight. I think part of the reason I stopped last time was because I felt like with my medication I wasn't going to get anywhere anyway but I couldn't stop taking it. <BR> <BR> So here I go again, right from the beginning. My goal is to lose 3 poun... Sat, 30 Aug 2014 15:23:20 EST First Goal http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5406815 Finally made it down to my first goal of being under 300 lbs! 299 to be exactly, it took me two weeks instead of one but at least I made it! My next goal is 275 lbs, and when I make it I'm going to buy myself this dress <link>www.modcloth.com/shop/dresses/buddin<BR>g-starlet-dress-in-emerald </link> Sun, 30 Jun 2013 22:49:14 EST Fell off the Wagon http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5399767 Well, rather than loosing 2 lbs and getting below 300 for the first time in...ages; I fell of the bandwagon. I know where I went wrong, I fell into the trap of not having enough food available to bring to work so I was forced to eat out rather than eating healthier food items. I also let myself run out of fruit so now I'm suffering major fruit withdrawals. <BR> <BR> Tomorrow is another day and next week is another week and I'm going to go for being below 300 lbs and try again. However unt... Mon, 24 Jun 2013 01:37:20 EST Goal 1 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5393483 Almost to goal # 1! Two more pounds down and I reach 299 lbs, which will make the first time I've been under 300 lbs in...probably over a year. <BR> <BR> The question is...what to do to celebrate? Tue, 18 Jun 2013 13:20:13 EST A Minor Victory! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5374166 So today, despite the fact that my visiting boss bought me a Cherry Coke (one of my weaknesses) I only drank a sip of it rather than finishing the whole bottle like I would have a month ago! Yay victory! Fri, 31 May 2013 23:58:36 EST I Love Turkey Bacon http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5370747 I love turkey bacon. I love it so much that I don't even buy regular bacon anymore, even if the recipe calls for it. This was an entirely useless post I know, but it was all I could think to blog about. Tue, 28 May 2013 19:44:49 EST Hello, My Name is Ashley and I am a Control Freak http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5365184 Which is silly, considering I have little to no self control when it comes to food. However in my work, and sometimes home life, I need to control everything possible. From the angle a display is placed at work to how my roommate does the dishes. Perhaps I use up all my controlling on other people and forget to leave some for myself? <BR> <BR> The first step is admitting it though, right? Thu, 23 May 2013 00:14:11 EST Bad Streak Continues http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5364009 Well my bad streak continues, I seem to have fallen back into some of my old habits. I have a million excuses of why, I haven't had time to grocery shop, what food I do have requires cooking which I detest and with my work stress has made me even less willing to do so. However, I'm sick of excuses. I'm having a bad streak because I'm not making myself follow my plan. I'm giving into temptation because I'm being weak and I need to get myself together. <BR> <BR> Tomorrow is another day and... Tue, 21 May 2013 22:46:01 EST Bad Streak http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5361635 Well I'm having a bad streak for food eating for the past few days. I've been over-eating and not eating great food. <em>39</em> I've feeling pretty bummed about it overall, but I'm trying to remind myself that tomorrow is another day and that I can do this. Sun, 19 May 2013 23:01:27 EST Roadblock http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5353530 Well, I've hit my first roadblock since I restarted my quest to loose weight. This one is in the form of a really painful back spasm. Its making it very hard to exercise properly and it makes me want to eat constantly to battle the pain. <BR> <BR> I've been over calories a lot since it happened so today I decided to restart the quest to stay within my calories since I can't do much for exercise. I have been walking as part of my exercise but I have to do so slowly because most standing an... Sat, 11 May 2013 22:46:52 EST Feeling Bloated http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2150966 I hate feeling bloated, it makes me feel like all of the effort I'm putting towards losing weight isn't doing a damn thing because I put on my clothes and I look worse than ever. <BR> <BR> Sun, 14 Jun 2009 22:56:35 EST Introduction http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2116941 I'm Ashley and I'm going to start losing weight now! I've tried before, dozens of times, but I'm determined to do it this time. I'm actually a very healthy person, the problem is I don't work out enough to counterbalance what I eat. So now I'm going to eat less, exercise more and hopefully lose the weight that I don't want *crosses fingers* Tue, 2 Jun 2009 16:50:51 EST
