I'm stoked that I was only 5 pounds more than the last time I weighed in in January! <BR> <BR> I've ordered new workout videos and bought all the right foods!! <BR> <BR> LET'S DO THIS!!! :) Sun, 28 Nov 2010 14:34:54 EST Keeping me on my toes http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3793992 Well...This was my first week back at work being a new mom (for the 2nd time in 13years). I have to say that it's been extremely challenging. I haven't had much time for myself. Wake up, change baby, feed baby, shower, burp baby, start hair and make up, entertain baby, finish hair and make up, entertain baby some more, put clothes on, give baby a pacifier, prepare diaper bag for sitter, but baby in stroller, take to sitter, go to work. LOL That's the extent of my morning EVERY morning. :) ... Fri, 19 Nov 2010 11:19:13 EST We're on the way... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3788759 Well...My son will be 7 weeks old tomorrow. I had my final post-natal doctor visit today and have been given full medical clearance. Yay! For me, this not only means that I can finally go back to work, but I can start managing my weight better. <BR> <BR> I'm looking forward to going back to Weight Watchers and plan to do so in the next couple of weeks. I found my WW workout DVD and want to fall in to a schedule/habit of working out in the mornings or evenings. I'm thinking maybe DVD in the... Tue, 16 Nov 2010 21:12:07 EST Ok...This is what happened.... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3737341 So my last blog was about me falling off the wagon and putting some of my weight back on. Well...There was a reason for it! I found out about 2 weeks after my last post that I was pregnant! Hmmm...That explains the lack of motivation that I had for going to Weight Watchers LOL <BR> <BR> But...I've had the baby and I'm ready to get going again. I went to the doctor for my 2 week follow-up (I had a c-section), and I was only 10 pounds more than my last weight in at WW. <BR> <BR> I'm plan... Sun, 24 Oct 2010 19:12:35 EST Falling off the wagon http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2991378 Well...I slipped, tripped, stumbled, crashed, burned and landed right on my face! :) I had some issues that made me fall off the wagon. I haven't been to a Weight Watchers meeting in 6 or 7 weeks. Ugh. I feel terrible for it. I've kept up on my dues...knowing that I want to go back. I know that I've put some of my weight back on. I was almost down 25 pounds. I think I've gained somewhere between 10 and 15. <BR> <BR> But...It's all good! :) I've decided that I'm going to jump up, wipe the... Fri, 12 Mar 2010 12:14:47 EST It's Tough http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2808754 This is a really tough week. I'm PMSing LOL Really REALLY craving the sweet stuff right now. Just keeping my fingers crossed for my Saturday weigh in :) Thu, 28 Jan 2010 11:52:01 EST Hanging in there http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2799446 Well...Last week was successful :) I lost 2.6 lbs at Weight Watchers for a total of 24.6 since I started on 10/24/09. Not too shabby! Not having too much of a bad week this week either. Started out with Disneyland on Saturday...So I definately got my excercise in :) <BR> <BR> Still watching everything I'm eating and counting my points. I'm just hoping to lose .4 this Saturday so that I can get my 25 pound medallion!! WoooHoooo!!!! :) <BR> <BR> I'll check back soon! Have great weeks! Tue, 26 Jan 2010 12:22:21 EST Here we go again! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2767705 Well...It's been quite some time since I've been on Spark People. But...I'm goig to try and keep up daily again :) <BR> <BR> On October 24, 2009 I joined Weight Watchers. I've done really good thus far and hope to keep on going strong. <BR> <BR> To date...I have lost 22 lbs following the WW plan. I've had my rough moments...especially with the holidays...but I know I can get back on track and reach my goal! <BR> <BR> Glad to be back! :) Tue, 19 Jan 2010 14:42:45 EST I'm Baaaa--aacccckkkk LOL :) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2303310 Well...I've been away for a while. I stopped my diet when I realized that the grapefruit juice might conflict with some of my medications. I stopped taking the meds and the diet at the same time. I didn't really want to take any chances. <BR> <BR> Well...I've now spoken to my doctors and it is completely safe for me to be back on the diet and take my meds! WooHooo...Great news! I was doing SO well before too. Oh well. Better safe than sorry. <BR> <BR> So I've started my diet again this m... Mon, 10 Aug 2009 13:30:24 EST Back In The Saddle! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=1948711 Ok...So, I fell off the wagon! LOL <BR> <BR> I completely stopped my diet 2 weeks ago after going for 4 weeks and 21 pounds. Well, today I'm getting back on the wagon. No more soda. Limited coffee. No more ice cream. LOL <BR> <BR> The good thing, however, I kept the weight off! I got on the scale to start my morning...210! So, I only put 1 pound on in 2 weeks. Not too shabby! LOL But I'm off and pacing again! Wish me luck! LOL <BR> <BR> I'm definately going to try to get in mo... Mon, 6 Apr 2009 15:29:35 EST 4 Weeks Down! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=1897950 Ok...So I failed miserably this week. LOL I weighed in last Friday and was down to 210. Yay!! Of course...I forgot to log it in on this site. But that's ok. I can report that I got on the scale this morning and...Wha LA!! 209! Now....let me tell you how my week has gone..... <BR> <BR> It all started with El Torito's on Sunday. That was my first down fall LOL Then...there were 3 days this week when I forgot my lunch. I was PMSing, so I ended have a total of 2 1/2 Pepsi's. And don't ge... Fri, 20 Mar 2009 18:28:52 EST Made it through another week! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=1856129 Well...I made it LOL I got on the scale this morning and was down another pound. Better to lose one than to gain one. LOL <BR> <BR> This is my free weekend. I can pretty much eat what I want (and finally have a Pepsi!) LOL I have my aunt's 90th birthday party tomorrow and plans to go to Carney's for the world best chili cheese fries LOL <BR> <BR> I'll weigh in again on Monday and then start my 12 days again :) And yes...these are the instructions of the diet. :) <BR> <BR> Have a gr... Fri, 6 Mar 2009 14:34:40 EST I Cheated :( Argh! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=1853744 I've been doing really good. I make my breakfast and lunch every morning. I have all my necessary items at work and home. However...Last night, I neglected to take out a piece of meat from the freezer to make for lunch today. I figured it wouldn't be too much of a big deal. I could always run and pick up a chicken salad somewhere. <BR> <BR> Nope...Didn't happen. <BR> <BR> The boss ordered pizza for lunch. I gave in and had a slice. <BR> <BR> I feel really bad. Not only because I got inst... Thu, 5 Mar 2009 17:53:30 EST Movin' Right Along! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=1844221 Ok...So I've decided to weigh myself on Mondays and Fridays. The reason being...I have every other weekend free from my diet :) So, if I add Monday to my weigh in, I can keep better track of what not to do on the weekends. LOL <BR> <BR> That being said.... <BR> <BR> I woke up this morning after my first weekend on the diet. It actually wasn't too bad. I thought I was going to have issues on Saturday night when my parents dragged me off to a casino LOL But the snack bar ended up having s... Mon, 2 Mar 2009 19:15:58 EST Utterly Baffled! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=1835020 Ok...so first week down (well 5 days) and I'm feeling good. Everyone's encouraging me to keep going and I'm getting lots of kudo's for keeping on my diet. <BR> <BR> However.... <BR> <BR> I got on the scale this morning. 219!!!! How is this even possible? No normal person loses 11 pounds in 5 days. I don't care you who are...unless you're on some serious drugs, that shouldn't happen! LOL <BR> <BR> Maybe it was a combination of everything. I stuck to the diet plan 100%. Always drank my gr... Fri, 27 Feb 2009 12:46:29 EST Fighting the battle http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=1832218 Ok...I'm a little worried. The hardest part of any diet (I think) is fast approaching. THE WEEKEND! For some reason, weekends have always been my downfall. During the week I have work to keep me busy and my mind off of stuff. But the weekend...Ugh...Really not that much to do. <BR> <BR> I've done good this week. I haven't had any soda at all. Now...those who know me know that's a HUGE accomplishment for me. I have a minimum of 3 to 4 cans of Pepsi a day. Again...At work, I'm not too worrie... Thu, 26 Feb 2009 13:30:53 EST
