BNDGDRGN88's SparkPeople Blog BNDGDRGN88's Blog on SparkPeople, home of free diet plans and a healthy living community November 16, 2013 Hey everyone. So, it has been a long time since I did a post. Today I am sick again, darn colds. I will kick it though. :) I recently did a re-weigh to double check my eyes were not tricking me. I started this journey as most of you know at over 315 pounds. I now weigh 160 pounds and am only ten away from my ideal goal weight! My mother was a heavy woman since I can remember and she went the gastric bipass route! To this day she regrets it outside of not being big anymore. I told he... Sat, 16 Nov 2013 19:01:18 EST September 4, 2013 Hello everyone. Officially I have lost 145 pounds, originated at 315 pounds down to 170 pounds. :) <BR> <BR> ~BndgDrgn <em>402</em> Wed, 4 Sep 2013 19:36:20 EST August 11, 2013 Hello everyone. It has been some time since I last blogged. I have been so busy with my first born starting school this week. Exciting! Another exciting topic is that I lost more weight. I have officially lost 126 pounds! I started at 315 pounds and am now 189! I feel great and know that this time, I WILL make my goal! I can do this and I WILL! I want to thank all of you, my friends, my sparkfamily for your support! Thank you!! Things are so much better! One of my exercises is wal... Sun, 11 Aug 2013 03:25:25 EST July 18, 2013 Hey everyone. Today is a little bit better. To date I have lost 115 pounds. I submitted a recipe today on sparkpeople, first time I have ever shared a recipe. I started my weight this time around at 315 pounds and now weigh 200. I am very excited. I will post pix I took today to show how far I have come. My old pants verses me today. There is a sad note though. I have an 11month old black lab pup that I have to rehome or he will end up in a shelter. I took him on with the intent and ... Thu, 18 Jul 2013 20:48:50 EST July 17, 2013 It has been some days since I last blogged. I have been sad. I learned that my fiance had been talking with his ex again. Some might think no biggy right. Well I was going to think no biggy but it quickly changed to something else, not sure for a good word to call it right now. But he had told her that he wishes that he had brought her the roses he was going to bring her instead of reconnecting with me after a fewyears of lost connection. That he wished he was with her because he would ... Wed, 17 Jul 2013 15:56:13 EST June 26, 2013 Hey everyone. <BR> <BR> So I have been doing the Level One of Jillian Michaels "30 day shred". It is an amazing workout. I am super sore but know that it is working so forward with it. :) <BR> Yesterday, I felt super confident in my own skin, which as many of you may already know, I am not comfortable in my own skin, and never have been (outside of the occasional blue moon). But I felt super good about myself. So, I got purdied up, in other words had hair and make up done. Even my nail... Wed, 26 Jun 2013 18:17:18 EST June 21 2013 So I have gotten the first of hopefully many responses to my application to what I want to do. i submitted the required information and hope that I make it. :) <BR> <BR> Today I feel pretty good. i did a post of my life to how I came to be here on spark. I mentioned that doctors say I will have to have some 'cosmetic work' done to correct somethings diet and exercise cannot fix. I have my first appointment for consultation next month. I am nervous. And what things need to be done are ... Fri, 21 Jun 2013 18:32:55 EST My life story :) ~This is a long one everybody~ So I realized that I never really posted why I am on spark people to start with. <BR> <BR> Well as some of you know I am a young mother of three, only 24 years old. I have two boys and a girl, not in that order. I had my first son when I was eight-teen and a senior in high school. I graduated at the top of my class and I also finished early too. Everyone told me to abort my son, and that I would never graduate or make myself anything good in life. Even the school dean told me that I wou... Fri, 21 Jun 2013 18:26:34 EST June 19, 2013 Yesterday I sent in inquiries for my dreams to a few companies that I found locally. Doing more research as I go and getting great help and advice from JD (someone already in the industry). I am super excited and had some great confidence and motivation today to push myself just a little bit more during my work out this am and feel like I will be able to pull of a light evening work out as well. JD has been a great inspiration to me and I love his work. Again I am super super excited. Th... Wed, 19 Jun 2013 19:51:39 EST Relationship support, update It has been two days since I posted my blog entry "Relationship Support". <BR> I have been doing my homework on what it is that I want to do and getting advice from all over, the whole nine yards and then some. I never do anything big without checking it out thoroughly first. My significant other, still is not on board, even though I try to talk about it with them (I mean, hey, communication is important right). It seems like they are slowly understanding that this is something that I have... Wed, 19 Jun 2013 19:47:40 EST Relationship support There is something that I have dreamed of doing since I was four years old, maybe even before I was four but I can only remember as far back as four years old. I told my significant other about it and there just doesn't seem to be any support. It just doesn't seem fair when I support them in everything they want to do and I help them sift through all the details so they can put their dreams and desires into action. I wonder now if my significant other is part of why I have such a hard time... Sun, 16 Jun 2013 22:43:07 EST
