I only gained about a pound while on vacation last week and I did not watch what I ate - well, I did while I stuffed my face with it! I have a loss the beginning of this week too!!!! .6 to go to cover my July goal before I even think about my August goal. I am thinking the right way (most of the time) this time! <em>244</em> Tue, 26 Aug 2014 13:56:17 EST progress??

So it is pouring today and what has to happen..................? Yes, the idiot light for low tire pressure came on when I started my car this morning!!! So... I had to stand IN the rain (I WAS having a good hair day - do not have those often!) and check each tire - the passenger front tire was only 26 pounds... hope it is not a sign that I need yet another tire. Hope it is just because the change of weather. I really do not want to have to stop in the rain on the way home and again put ... Wed, 13 Aug 2014 08:46:13 EST HI! That's it! Tue, 12 Aug 2014 16:27:06 EST July goals unreached So they are not august's goals with an addition: the two pounds from July and five more for August.... <em>198</em> Mon, 11 Aug 2014 13:45:25 EST Again... why did they have to fix the scale??! I am the one who mentioned it too! i knwo it has to be accurate for the ppt's due to their CHF but now I have 5 lbs instead of 2 lbs to go to my next mini goal which was due today...

PHEW!!!!!!!!!!!! <em>198</em> Tue, 15 Jul 2014 13:16:08 EST Mostly good weekend Saturday went to Mohegan sun to see Jeff Dunham. Stopped in at Margaritaville for dinner - Oh yeah! <BR> <BR> Tropical fruit margarita with mango puree in it... jerk chicken bites and CHEESEBURGER (in paradise!). The Jerk chicken was excellent.... ate MOST of the burger (too big!) and some fries (not even half). I was full but oh so very happy!

Wed, 9 Jul 2014 09:09:38 EST Thought of the day..... Just remember someone else might have it worse... Tue, 8 Jul 2014 13:19:43 EST Foiled Plans so no walk yesterday - too hot and I may have to skip again today but I am going to the gym tonight so it may not matter. Just hope it is not too humid there - ugh! Thu, 3 Jul 2014 09:05:58 EST Walking at work Been doing more walking at lunch instead of sitting playing with my phone in the lunch room. Only takes me 5-10 minutes to actually eat mt lunch - leaves me with 20 min that I can use to walk. I do not like sitting in there half the time anyway depending on the company. Why did I not think of this sooner??? DUR! <em>20</em> Tue, 1 Jul 2014 14:04:06 EST Four day work week! YAY!!! <BR> <BR> Funny how we wish our lives away looking forward to 2 day weekends... <em>334</em> Mon, 30 Jun 2014 12:53:41 EST Thought of the day... It is a beautiful sunshiny day - why did I not call in sick??! My boss did! <em>334</em> Fri, 27 Jun 2014 08:51:40 EST Morning! <em>334</em> Mon, 23 Jun 2014 09:07:40 EST Doing okay Had Burger King for dinner last night and I DO NOT FEEL GUILTYY!!!! Fri, 20 Jun 2014 12:41:13 EST I scared my body I think! Hired the trainer for Monday to change my routine since I have not seen any changes in over three weeks... weighed myself this morning and I must have scared my body - finally a drop! 1 pound but it is a drop nontheless! <em>334</em> <BR> <BR> I will still keep the appointment with the trainer though... Thu, 19 Jun 2014 08:35:21 EST Thought for the day..... Happy Friday the 13th and enjoy the full moon tonight!!!! The ppts at work are going to be out of contol... gunna be a long day! <BR> <BR> On a brighter note: Today marks 25 years and 6 months that I had to have my Thyroid out because of a stupid tumor. <em>512</em> <em>510</em> <em>44</em> Fri, 13 Jun 2014 09:48:45 EST Another complement... makes me try harder! Encouragement via complements... got one at the gym last night and I pushed myself harder AND stayed on track and did not snack (though I REALLY, REALLY wanted to!) when I got home and made dinner. There is hope for me yet!!? Tue, 10 Jun 2014 13:24:16 EST Things to make you smile! Enjoying the complements I am getting more than the number on the scale... I think the scale should take a hike! <em>216</em> <em>192</em> <em>244</em> Fri, 6 Jun 2014 09:07:25 EST Thought of the day.... “I know of no more encouraging fact than the unquestionable ability of man to elevate his life by conscious endeavor.” <BR> <BR> ~Henry David Thoreau~ <BR> <BR> Thu, 5 Jun 2014 08:51:00 EST While the boss is away... I am here! <em>20</em> <em>334</em> Tue, 3 Jun 2014 12:59:05 EST Ankle Hurts! I am tired of it hurting! There. I am done whining (for the moment). Just going to keep it up while at my desk and try to resist using the treamill at the gym tonight since that would most likey make it worse. I really have to get this fixed... but I know I will not. Doctor is a waste of time (and cost me $500.00 already for xrays last year that showed nothing and the doc never really calle me on them after they were done). So i just will have to deal and rest when it hurts! Mon, 2 Jun 2014 10:35:19 EST Morning! That's it! Have a great day! Thu, 29 May 2014 09:04:53 EST Thought of the day..... Worries of yesterday are whatevers of today.... Wed, 28 May 2014 08:41:27 EST Keep 'em coming!!!!! Down seven..... lets hope that this is downward fall that continues!!!! Tue, 27 May 2014 13:48:01 EST Progressing... Finally!!!!! You go though the days fretting and stressing because you are doing everything you can (well. mostly) to change and it is not showing. what a difference when it really starts to show. Today my boss said to me "you pants bagging a little on you?" YES! I am almost down 8 from my {most recent} highest weight (not recorded on here but that is okay!) I am starting to really track. I had pizza last night but only 3 pices instead of eating half but I know i was having it so I ha... Fri, 23 May 2014 08:51:34 EST Small Yay.. but it is a YAY anyway! Got on the scale today.. got off... got back on and said "yay"! Down a only a pound. Have not seen a change in a while so this small accomplishment is kind of huge!!! One pound is one pound! <em>30</em> Wed, 21 May 2014 08:38:27 EST Not as good... So my Hubby went to a concert at the Mohegan Sun Sunday and before he left he stopped at Krispy Kreme for a few doughnuts. Today he brought them out and I had one. I think i is because it is a few days old but all I could taste is the oil. It was not enjoyable. I have not had a doughnut in a while and now I am good for a while.

No matter where you go or what you do, you live your entire life within the confines of your head. ~Terry Josephson <BR> Mon, 19 May 2014 11:10:25 EST Yum! Had an ice cream sundae today and it was good!!!!!!!!! Fri, 16 May 2014 16:18:44 EST Who Knew?? I think (don't want to talk too fast here...) I might be making a dent finally. The scale has not dipped but is also is not going back up (as it usually does). Just have to stop killing what I do during the week once the weekend comes. THAT is my down fall. Great during the week (structured setting: work, etc.. get the munchies, have nothing to cure them so I ignore them). Crappy one the weekend (get the munchies and try reall, real, real hard to ignore it!). Thu, 15 May 2014 08:21:29 EST Bla! And that is all I have to day..... Wed, 14 May 2014 08:51:30 EST Thought of the day... Why fret over what you have done - concentrate on what you can do! - Author - ME! Tue, 13 May 2014 13:16:30 EST Little man is sick today - but still funny! He came down with a cold this weeknd and wanted to, at first, go to school then his tummy started feeling funny. So we head out so hubby can drop me off at work, take andrew to his grams (hubby's mom) then go to work himself. Once on the way to his grams, he proceeded to vomit. His comment - "well at least nowIi will only have the runny nose and cough now since that is out of my system". <BR> <BR> So cute even when he is sick!

If you do not hope, you will not find what is beyond your hopes. <BR> St. Clement of Alexandra <BR> <BR> Fri, 9 May 2014 09:31:51 EST Another appt tonight I have no idea if this is even going to work. He has shown no effort to trying to do things on his own. Granted he has not had one "accident' at school so far this week but he also has not tried ot go on his own or at least admit without being asked if he went in his pants. We have not given him one point since hs not earned them but Auntie keep sbuying him stuff that is not on his reward list - I really think that should stop all together but I know that is not going to happen.
