I deal with depression and lately it's been a little hard to cope with it, so I needed a day where I could feel good about myself. So I decided to put on some make-up and dress up. I really did feel good about myself and it was what I needed to get out of the rut I've been stuck in. I had shot up in weight, going back up to 203 pounds and today I'm back down to 199.8 pounds. It's amazing what ... Mon, 14 Jul 2014 15:54:57 EST Feeling worth it. :) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5727818 My highest weight was 280 pounds. I had become a recluse at this point and not wanting to do much let alone work out. I felt terrible and unattractive but I wouldn't do anything about it because I thought that, at this point in my life, that I was happy. But I wasn't. In some ways I felt depressed. I felt like I wasn't worth looking like all the other girls who were thin and pretty. I didn't want to leave the house I was in because I was afraid of being judged. Of course I'm going to be judge... Sat, 28 Jun 2014 15:18:01 EST gained weight and struggling with the bf. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5714654 My weight has been yo-yoing between 202 and 208.... Today I stepped on the scale it read 208 and I have to admit that I'm kind of disappointed in this. I have been doing so well with working out at home but when I go to Nick's for a couple of days I feel like I don't have the room to do so and I end up mindless snacking on what ever is in front of me! I try to get out and go walking with him but he hates walking and even admitted to being too lazy to actually enjoy it, but he will occasionall... Tue, 10 Jun 2014 01:38:45 EST Jackal Of Anubis EVP Session http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5704028 JOA went to Duncan Manor and did a short EVP session near the old wooden door that leads down to the basement. (we were outside doing this!) Tue, 27 May 2014 03:09:38 EST Weight Loss Update. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5698847 <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/2/0/l2062951683.jpg"> <BR> <BR> The picture on the left is when I weight 270 pounds last year and the picture on the right is where I'm at right now at 205 pounds. :) I'm very happy with my accomplishments and I know I have much more to go! I have a goal to get to 196 before my birthday, August 28 and at this rate I'll be closer to my main goal than that! :) Tue, 20 May 2014 00:09:45 EST Adventure at the soldiers and sailors home... also some weight loss update. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5683269 Let's back track to a few days ago. April 25-26 I was in Bloomington with Nick. We went on an adventure and explored an abandoned building (legally, we didn't go inside). The building is called the Soldiers and Sailors home and it was built in the middle of the civil war for orphans whose parents died in the war. It is said that the first superintendent of the school, Mrs. Virginia Ohr, was accused of mistreating the children. It survived the Civil War and the Spanish-American War, opening it... Tue, 29 Apr 2014 14:52:31 EST Cemetery Adventures with Jackals of Anubis. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5657090 Last week I couldn't work out because I was down with bronchitis! So this week I'm trying to work my way back up to where I need to be. It's a slow progress. Motivation has been drained from my body after a week of being sick! D= But I'll get there. I'm forcing myself to work out for the bare minimum amount of time and allow my body to get used to it again... hopefully the motivation will come crawling back when it sees how much fun it is again. <BR> <BR> Anyways, last Saturday the 22nd I w... Wed, 26 Mar 2014 14:08:47 EST E.R. visit. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5650428 So at around 9:45pm last night mom took me to the E.R. I've had a bad chest cold for the past few days and nothing has been working so my parents thought it would be best if I just go to the hospital to get something a bit stronger than over the counter medicine... turns out I have bronchitis in my left lung that if I had waited just a couple of more days would have turned into pneumonia. When he said I looked at my mom with this sort of "I knew it" look. the doctor just looked at me and put... Tue, 18 Mar 2014 01:29:30 EST SB7-SPirit Box test http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5648637 Monday, March 10th my mom and I went to the cemetery and took my camera and spirit box. This is the results. Sorry the camera work is awful.... I suck! D= Sat, 15 Mar 2014 19:34:10 EST Working out, random ramblings about abandoned jail, spirit box, work and stuff.... :) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5642593 Okay, today (3.7.2014) Had been a really great day for working out! It was not cold at all so mom and I took a short walk to the prison and back. It sounds really weird, but the prison is one of my favorite places to walk to! <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/5/7/l572650185.jpg"> Its old, and full of history but it's still active and no way for me to get inside to do ghost hunts! But there is an old county jail that has been closed up for years now that I would love to get inside... Sat, 8 Mar 2014 02:55:01 EST Short Jackals of Anubis vlog. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5641734 my first vlog tryng to get used to being infront of a camer and talking a bit about my ghost hunting gear so far. :D Thu, 6 Mar 2014 23:00:21 EST 220 pounds?? ptthhh I'm never seeing that again! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5637151 I am finally below 220 lbs! I weighed myself and the scale said 218.8.... I am so excited! I haven't been below 220 in a really long time, so this is a big deal for me! Seeing that number on the scale just blew me away! I seriously wanted to cry because I was really happy. I have goals to be 196 by August 28 (my birthday) I have a feeling that if I keep this up I will reach that goal a little sooner. Maybe I'll even get to wear a bikini this summer!!! :D :D Sat, 1 Mar 2014 20:06:02 EST work stress and ankle weights http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5635737 Hey everyone! I haven't been feeling all too well lately. There's a lot of stress at work right now and it's just bogging me down a lot. However, there's also a lot of changes being made as far as equality goes and also we are starting to weed out the weaker links in our small crew. <BR> <BR> I had gotten my check before leaving work last night and was able to do some shopping in the evening, I picked up some ankle weights! 10 pound per weight, and of course the weights are removable. I hav... Fri, 28 Feb 2014 03:05:13 EST Ready to face my day! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5628470 I work at 4 PM. I decided to knock out 80 jumping jacks and 20 push-ups before I shower. :) I feel strong today. My blood is flowing through my body, I'm warmed up, stretched and ready to face the day. I always feel amazing after a work out, regardless of how short or long it is. :D :D Gonna have to keep this up! :D :D Wed, 19 Feb 2014 15:31:18 EST Need to keep drinking water!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5625578 I still have a lot to work on. I realize that I don't drink nearly as much water when I go to my boyfriends house. I really need to make sure I stay on top of that, even there. Today I feel bloated and tired. I did jumping jacks today and I did not enjoy them. Because I'm bloated my stomach bounced too much making it painful. I'm back to drinking water now and hoping that it will help me out a lot! In fact, I know it will. I think I'll get fruit for lunch. I'm feeling as though I need it, esp... Sun, 16 Feb 2014 13:46:25 EST a little time is better than no time. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5620576 So far my workouts hasn't been very long. I've been trying to get in the habit of exercising more often than I have been on the time. I really do have to admit I really want to go running! We have a rec center in town but it's 6 bucks to use... that isn't really that much considering you get the whole place! Track, weights, machines, pool.... the only thing you cant get are the classes. How ever... nothing beats running outside in the fresh air. In a few days its supposed to get in to the 40'... Mon, 10 Feb 2014 15:49:41 EST depression?? My own worst bully. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5618711 I've worked out two days in a row now... I have these little heart shaped stickers that I put on my calender on days when I work out. :) It's childish but I like it. I started doing that at the beginning of the year and sadly my January only had 2 stickers on it :(. February is looking slightly better with 3 stickers lol. <BR> <BR> I don't really know why I lose motivation as easily as I do. Maybe it's due to my anxiety and perhaps a slight depression. At times I do feel trapped with in my ... Sat, 8 Feb 2014 14:29:24 EST slow progress and new goal :D http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5618139 I weighed myself today. I am now at 221.4 pounds, which means I am losing weight... just slowly. The winter has been harsh and it drains my motivation. But I am confident that I will lose 25 pounds by August 28 of this year. It'll be rough, I understand that I will have to make some sacrifices on top of the sacrifices I've already made. <BR> <BR> Also, I'm writing a story, its about vampires and other creatures of the night. :) It's going well so far. I've had to start over about 100 times!!... Fri, 7 Feb 2014 20:17:41 EST working out. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5505670 so I've been working out, not as much as I would like, but I'm doing a lot more than I have been doing. Insanity kicks my ass. I can barely do the warm ups, but I'm getting better. My legs are toning up at least, now the rest of me has to follow suit eventually lol. To be honest, I wish I was more focused on my health and more constant with my workouts. Yes, I'm doing insanity but I should really be doing it at set times every day (minus one day for rest). I need to try to focus more on my ea... Sun, 6 Oct 2013 02:24:51 EST THIS IS INSANE http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5498622 I got new shoes to work out in. :) Also, I started insanity yesterday! Well, it's the preparation part of Insanity... it's slowed down a lot and its just to get you ready for the 60 day challenge known as Insanity. Yesterday I couldn't make it through the warm ups! I felt really out of shape. But I wasn't too upset. I knew I was going to have troubles with it and that I wouldn't be able to make it through the whole thing! But today, I went further. I finished the warm up part and did the str...

I feel it in my sinuses and the pressure in my ears. It isn't too bad but it's making me dizzy! <BR> <BR> I got my first tattoo Thursday! <BR> <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/7/5/l751330881.jpg"> <BR> <BR> Its a raven on the bust of Pallas. <BR> <BR> Also, Jackals of Anubis!

Thanks, now time to go get ready for work. :D <BR> <BR> --Rach Wed, 11 Sep 2013 16:14:07 EST 11 pounds?? how?? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5478269 I don't know how I did it but I did it. I lost 11 pounds! I had to go to the ER today because Ive been having some weird symptoms. Dizziness and my ovaries been felling like theyve been ran over by a freight train.... the Male nurse wasn't sure what to make of that analogy. The exam came back normal but they havent gotten around to reviewing the rest of the test yet. <BR> <BR> So 11 pounds lost.... wow! I really dont know how I did that. Ive been shoving cakes and stuff in my face the pas... Sat, 7 Sep 2013 01:02:01 EST I DROPPED SOMETHING!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5456339 Working at Walmart and going for walks with mom and doing some workouts at home is really paying off. I got paid today and decided that I needed some new jeans. I have been wearing size 24s for the past year. Today I tried on a size 22 but they were too loose on me. As of today I am a size 20 in jeans! I DROPPED TWO PANT SIZES!!!!!! My legs are toning up and they look longer and my shirts are all starting to feel a bit looser on me as well. I am one happy girl today! :D Thu, 15 Aug 2013 16:19:03 EST My Managers are okay people. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5454639 The store manager really surprised me tonight. Knowing and had read the doctors note yesterday, she really came through for me. I walked into walmart today and talked to the Ast. Store Manager and had him read the same doctors note, he seemed more inclined to help and see what all was available and had called the manager who had hired me in the first place to come to the AD office, while we waited he was deciding to put me on overnight stocking seeing on how that was the only available openin... Wed, 14 Aug 2013 02:53:41 EST I have some weird anxiety... REGISTER-PHOBIA! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5453439 I had a doctors appointment today, mainly because I need a note for Walmart. I have acute anxiety when working with money, like it terrifies me. I know it's a weird anxiety to have but its mine and there's nothing I can really do about it. All I know is that Walmart really can't say that they don't have an other position available except for cashiering, because I hear all the time that 3rd shift stockers needs people bad. Also, every day there's carts to run and I can get fish for people and ... Mon, 12 Aug 2013 23:20:31 EST Reaaaaaaly short blog. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5449163 My month long challenge had already failed. Well.... F*ck. Even though I am still eating chocolate I'm not eating a lot of it. I've really cut back on it. Also, my sleep seems to be getting better. <BR> <BR> I've switched to soy milk again. I don't feel as bloated but I'm thinking of trying almond milk. Thu, 8 Aug 2013 19:34:48 EST my month long challenge http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5443290 This is going to be a short blog. <BR> <BR> I'm making my own challenge. No chocolate, energy drinks, or coffee for a month. I'm going to start buying healthy stuff, veggies, fruits, stuff like that. I just really need to start getting healthy and stop being addicted to everything that I don't need. I know chocolate isn't all that bad in moderation but when you're addicted to it then it kind of is. Sat, 3 Aug 2013 13:22:42 EST WTH http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5440544 It's 1:01am, I have work at 9 am.... I'm not even tired! But I really need to try to sleep I guess. This is why I hate morning shifts, because there are times where insomnia hits and I just can't sleep. And no, I'm not going to take any sleeping medication because my body is actually too sensitive for that. The last time I had any sort of "drowsy" medication I was out for 3 days! I really to work on getting on a sleeping schedule, I would probably lose weight a little easier. Except I need mo... Thu, 1 Aug 2013 02:40:56 EST Walmart, Insanity, and other updates. :) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5397753 Working at Walmart is a lot more stressful than what I thought it would be. With the season coming to a close so is lawn and garden. I love working back there, it gives me the chance to move a lot, and left and all that fun stuff. I really hate to go to a different department afterwards. The scheduling is stupid. Next week I'm working 530pm-10pm and then the next day Im working 830am....... it's killing me on my sleep and on my social life. It isn't constant and I hate it. I like the people I...

Something to think about. I do work tomorrow, 9-4... doing computer stuff and being shown around the building (even though I kind of already know it by heart!! lol) I think I'm going to work on this gym of mine, thats just next room, and trying to make it as efficient as I ...

It's been storming a lot lately! D= I have not been eating as well as I would like to. There's been a lot of stress here. Also, my motivation for working out has been next to none. I really have no idea what's going on with me. I want to lose weight but I'm finding it really hard to stay motivated. D= <BR> <BR> I'm going to start trying to wake up at 5:30 every morning, to eat a little breakfast, stretch and then go running around 6 when the ... Tue, 21 May 2013 23:43:54 EST getting the ant problem taken care of http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5343363 my room is usually infested with ants, but mom found a thing saying that ants dont like peppermint. So, in a spray bottle I mixed peppermint extract, mint extract and water and sprayed my room down. It actually worked. I see a few ants here and there but it isn't as bad as it used to be! So Im really happy about that. Also, it smells good. It smells like spearmint gum lol. <BR> <BR> Went walking with mom today. Tomorrow is Nick's birthday, Ill be making him some oatmeal raisin cookies. :) H...

Tue, 30 Apr 2013 18:38:07 EST Sleep is getting better. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5339194 Sleep is getting better. Went to sleep around 2 am last night and woke up at 6:50 this morning. I ate some cream of wheat with raisins for breakfast.... I actually had breakfast. It feels weird to be awake in the morning. I'm tired though. Thinking of working out some and taking a nap and hopefully get into a routine. Hopefully I can go to bed earlier tonight! <BR> <BR> Yesterday I weighed myself.... I gained at least 4 pounds. I'm not happy about this. I didn't track it because I'm actuall... Mon, 29 Apr 2013 09:25:36 EST Lack of sleep, repelling/attracting ghost and a jump rope! The next few days should be interesting http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5337526 So the past few days since my "nightmare" I haven't been sleeping well at night. The lack of sleep is really getting to me and today I just feel sick and I have a headache. I just took a short one hour nap forced my self awake! I NEED TO SLEEP AT NIGHT! Unless we're investigating.... But I really need to try to get my body on a sort of schedule as far as sleeping goes. Seriously, not sleeping is bad for the body. I feel more stressed out and my body aches for no reason. My eyes hurt, my head ... Sat, 27 Apr 2013 17:41:25 EST Nightmare or something more.... demonic? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5335653 The other day I woke up around 9 something in the morning just to go back to bed some minutes later. Has anyone had a dream so real you could have sworn you were awake? I laid in my bed with my eyes open. To the side near the foot of my bed was an old, homeless-looking woman. She was transparent and white and where her eyes should have been was nothing more than black voids. We locked eyes for a a couple of short moments and then I felt my neck get tight and I couldn't breath. I thrashed abou... Thu, 25 Apr 2013 20:07:13 EST A letter to me from my own body. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5333143 Dear Rachel: <BR> Hi, I'm your body and I know you like fried food, bread, chocolate, cake, ice cream and candy but the amount you eat is really ruining me. I'm not asking you to stop eating them completely but you really need to cut back on it. Also, I really love it when you work out. My lungs may burn and my heart may race and my muscles will ache but sometimes we all must endure some pain to get stronger. We're never mad at you when you work out because we all want you to be heal... Tue, 23 Apr 2013 15:58:49 EST My weekend.... my first ghost hunt.... kind of. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5325862 I was with Nick this weekend. It was really fun and I got to do some amazing things. I made some new friends which is always good. We played world of darkness... because we're geeky like that. Nick, Bendigo and I went on a short ghost hunt at a local cemetery. We took a lot of pictures and even tried EVPs, but it was way too windy to pick anything up. We captured a few anomalies that we just couldn't figure out. We have tried debunking them and tried to recreate what was captured. I'm hoping ... Tue, 16 Apr 2013 23:57:00 EST Sexualizing Obesity? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5319167 So I'm on deviant art, because I love see other peoples art work... being over 21 I get almost all forms of art shown to me and I realize that there are women who are trying to make being morbidly obese sexy! I don't know about you, and I know that every one is different and has some weird fetishes, but all I see is one unhealthy woman. Promoting anorexia is a bad example for girls and some boys, and so is promoting obesity. I really have no idea what's wrong with promoting healthy bodies and... Thu, 11 Apr 2013 02:25:04 EST Bottle Water and Soy Milk... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5317361 I've noticed that I drink a lot more water when it's bottled water. Our tap water just doesn't taste healthy so I don't drink a lot of it. Now that I bought a case of bottled water I drink it up like a fish. Also, I've been drinking more soy milk than regular milk, reading the labels it shows that soy milk has more vitamins than regular milk. But I'm hoping that these little changes in my diet will help me lose weight. It'll be fantastic if they do!! Tue, 9 Apr 2013 15:47:19 EST Things I know to be true about myself http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5310824 I got an idea to write a list of things I know to be true about me. I'm not sure how much that will be but I think it would be fun and maybe I'll learn more about me through this :) Let's get started. <BR> <BR> 1. I'm a female <BR> 2. I'm over weight. <BR> 3. I eat when I'm stressed or bored (mostly) <BR> 4. I get emotional easily <BR> 5. I play Dungeons and Dragons <BR> 6. I love Star Trek: The Next Generation <BR> 7. I love to paint <BR> 8. I love to write <BR> 9. I nerd out often <BR> 10.... Wed, 3 Apr 2013 23:32:38 EST Changes, we can't help it when it happens. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5306391 Lately I kept thinking of one word... a simple word that can have a profound effect on people. That one simple word is "change". We all change. Sometimes change can happen quickly, in the blink of an eye and other times it can take a few days, weeks and even years. One thing can change a person. Everyone you meet changes you in some way. There's no denying that. The way you feel can change and the way you see the world changes. <BR> <BR> In high school I wanted to join the military. But tha... Sun, 31 Mar 2013 14:54:12 EST I miss Jr. ROTC's P.T. when it left my muscles burning for days. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5298664 It's Spring. It's snowing. I am not happy about this. I need to go running and I cant do that when I have freezing air cutting into my lungs! <BR> <BR> I have been lacking on working out. One thing I hate is people watching me while I'm trying to exercise. It makes me feel a bit self-conscience. I don't mind working out in a group but when I'm the only one doing it then it just feels ridiculous! Also today has been terrible with eating... I've ate a lot today. It really has been just one of... Sun, 24 Mar 2013 20:49:58 EST Fruit smoothie???? Yes, please!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5297340 Moms been making fruit smoothies lately. Want some?? they're really good! I've notice that my cravings for chocolates and sweets aren't as bad when I have a fruit smoothie. I feel healthier after having one and not as tired. Yup.... I think this is my new addiction! =D <BR> <BR> -- Rachel Sat, 23 Mar 2013 15:17:43 EST Really short update http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5285485 It's already half way into March... I've slacked off a lot in Feburary but Im really serious about this time. Mom and I agreed not to buy chocolate for a month and see how we feel then. Also, gonna talk to dad about going to the rec. center at least once a week. <BR> <BR> This is really just a short update... theres really no excuss for feburary, just laziness :/ <BR> <BR> I just wanna say though, it's weird, when I was in school I didnt mind working out. I loved pushups, they were my fav... Wed, 13 Mar 2013 16:04:27 EST Day 7 No pictures today http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5248388 No pictures today, but I did take them. Theres really no difference in how the shirt fits on me just yet, and it's just annoying to have to look at the same picture over and over. I think that I've done okay with my eating, hardly any snacks and only 2 slices of bread with nutella. Cereal for breakfast, chicken pot pie for lunch and fish for dinner... I dont like fish but I ate it anyways because its healthy. Lately I've been craving chocolate, maybe its because valentines is the week and Im ... Tue, 12 Feb 2013 22:40:22 EST Day 6 of pictures... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5246429 <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/1/8/l1825904014.jpg"> <BR> <BR> <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/1/4/l1426822561.jpg"> <BR> <BR> <BR> I gained 2 lbs over the weekend. It make sense, my weekend diet was pretty poor and I because I wasn't feeling all too well I didn't workout at all. I'm not going ot track my weight gain, instead I'm using it as a tool to help me. I think it would be okay for me not to work out on the weekends, however, that doesnt mean I have to... Mon, 11 Feb 2013 12:54:05 EST Not feeling well!! D: http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5244626 No pictures today and possibly none tomorrow either. Will start back up Monday. <BR> <BR> I have a bit of a tooth infection that's trying to make its way out so I'm not feeling the greatest right now. I haven't even been able to work out today. Shame :( Sun, 10 Feb 2013 00:55:48 EST Day five. Im starting to feel better. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5242938 Hey everyone! :D I'm not starting off with pictures today. Today is day five, and I've managed to work out every day (except yesterday because of sinuses and I helped mom in the garage) My arms are starting to feel more tone and I feel as if Im getting strong in my legs as well. My abdomen isn't feeling any changes yet. Today I had a bacon and egg sandwich and a glass of chocolate milk. I've been trying to drink more water lately but I tend to get tired of it quickly. Since I'm no longer feel... Fri, 8 Feb 2013 13:56:31 EST
