I have lost 21 lbs, but haven't done so well in the last tow week. Instead of giving up, i have extended my date to reach my goal to May 31st. This should give me enough time. Tue, 23 Apr 2013 02:22:10 EST Zumba and toning tonight http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5324702 I exercised 90 minutes and walked 20 minutes today. I kept my calories, fat, protein and carbs on the low end of the range. Tomorrow I weigh in again and I am hoping to be close to my previous low: 147.8. Even if I'm not, I know I have been back on track for three days and will work to keep my streak going. I won't make my goal of 140 by April 30th, as planned, however I can make it by May 30th if I stay with the program. <em>381</em> Tue, 16 Apr 2013 02:29:03 EST Evening is my biggest challenge http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5321136 <em>230</em> I am having a hard time not eating too many calories in the evening. <BR> <em>227</em> Just because there is not one to see me eat doesn't mean the calories don't add up. Fri, 12 Apr 2013 18:13:25 EST Blew it yesterday but back on track today http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5319031 <em>24</em> I ate a few too many calories. it is hard to stay with my plan when I am traveling as I was yesterday. I only went over by about 100 calories. I won't beat myself up about it, instead I will do much better today. <em>104</em> Wed, 10 Apr 2013 23:03:33 EST Finally got below 150 lbs. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5313084 I finally broke through the 150 lb barrier. I had been going back and forth between 150 and 152 for over two weeks. Today I finally got under 150, weighing in at 148.8 and it is a big relief to have attained that goal Fri, 5 Apr 2013 21:53:40 EST Still on this plateau but I'm keeping the faith http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5310662 Back at 150.4 (how familiar) for the third time. I'm staying on track and keeping the faith that it will pay off in the long run. Wed, 3 Apr 2013 21:15:32 EST Still striving for my goals http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5306933 I have been exercising and tracking all my calories. I have been staying within the perameter, so I am hoping I will be down in weight at my next weigh in. Today I bought a pair of pants two sizes smaller than when I started, so that is a great reward! Mon, 1 Apr 2013 01:27:35 EST Back on track! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5303891 I weighed in at 151 today, which is where I was before I blew it last weekend. I am back on track with my exercise and nutrition. I feel encouraged that I will be able to continue to my goal weight of 140. Fri, 29 Mar 2013 00:55:26 EST Back on track http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5300254 Stayed within my goals today. Still need to find a way to eat more protein and less fat. Hoping the damage from yesterday isn't too bad when I step on the <em>192</em> Tue, 26 Mar 2013 01:12:46 EST Big pig out at Red Lobster http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5298974 I really went overboard at Red Lobster tonight. I have been being so good for so long that I can forgive myself and get back on track tomorrow. <em>24</em> <em>306</em> Mon, 25 Mar 2013 02:59:14 EST I'm trying SprakCoach http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5291100 To help get through this plateau I am trying the free SparkCoach feature. Looking forward to starting to lose weight again. Mon, 18 Mar 2013 12:48:46 EST Another trying plateau. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5290477 I need to have faith that I will continue to lose weight if I continue to maintain my calories within my goal range. Just because it has been a week since the weight has gone down doesn't mean it won't eventually. I have gotten out of the habit of eating breakfast and have begun eating after 10pm again, which is a problem. I will eat breakfast every day and finish eating by 10pm every day and hopefully that will do the trick. I am more than halfway to my goal and I need to stick to my plan. Sun, 17 Mar 2013 23:44:50 EST Eight weeks in and 15 lbs gone http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5284077 So far so good, i just need to stay the course. <em>386</em> Tue, 12 Mar 2013 14:38:58 EST Plateaus are challenging http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5277923 Today i weighed in at 155.8, exactly what I weighed five days ago. I slipped up a couple of times in the last week and it is obvious when I get on the scales. However, I have been back on track since Monday, so hopefully I will slide off the plateau and resume my downward slope again. Thu, 7 Mar 2013 20:17:05 EST Still on track to reach my goal http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5269927 Today I am at 155.8 lbs, almost halfway to my goal and ahead of my time schedule. I have been exercising daily and keeping my calories in check. I am proud of myself. I feel better than I have in a long, long time. Sat, 2 Mar 2013 15:19:54 EST 10 pounds gone, 1/3 of the way to GOAL http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5260435 I am finally under 160 lbs, after just over 5 weeks on the SparkPeople site. I am feeling good about the program of exercise and healthy eating that I have established. I know if I stick to my plan, I will reach my goal.

It's been a week since I went over my calories and I have been exercising every day. Sat, 16 Feb 2013 21:38:27 EST Keeping the faith http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5249074 I am at another plateau, can't seem to get below 162, but I have been off track a couple times in the last week, so I will just get back on the plan, stick to it and have faith that it will work for me. Wed, 13 Feb 2013 12:26:46 EST Staying the Course http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5240649 Staying on the planned course and seeing the results I want.
