Took for freakin ever but I did it. Yaay me. I am finally in the 250s. Still a long way to go but I am getting there one pound at a time. I have 9 more lbs to go to reach my next goal. I am trying to lose it in 10lb goals, it makes it easier for me. Hopefully these 9 lbs wont take 2 months to get off like the last 10lbs did. But at least its getting off, So I am happy. Wed, 28 Feb 2007 15:53:34 EST TLC'S SuperObese People I watched this show on TLC last night called" I eat 33.000 calories a day." It was about 4 super obese people, 2 men and 2 women. One of the women weighed 346, I thought to myself thats not that big. Then I was like wait a minute, that is big. That is alot of weight, it got me thinking . I said to myself when did my thinking get like that. It was because before I went on this program I was almost there. I was almost 300lbs. I was close to being SuperMorbid Obese. Oh my God I tho... Mon, 29 Jan 2007 12:02:00 EST 5lb challenge I am starting a 5 lb challenge saturday with my birthday group. I think this is just the motivation I need to get me to my V-day goal. I love a competition!! Thu, 25 Jan 2007 19:30:37 EST 10% goal Hey a spark friend just reminded me that I have hit my first 10% goal. Wooohooo. That made my day. Thanks Frisky!!! Now to set my next 10% goal. I have upped my exercises, I am now doing walk away the pounds 3 miles every morning and turbo jam 3 days a week. Then my strength I do on Mon, Tues, and Wed. So I am ready for the pounds and the inches to continue to melt right off. Have a great week!!! Mon, 22 Jan 2007 09:40:26 EST spark anniversary Yesterday was my 3 month spark anniversary. I have lost a total of 30lbs, since I started. Thats an average of 10lbs a month. Way Kewl!! I have enjoyed this journey with all my spark friends helping and encouraging me to keep going. I'm not gonna lie its hard sometimes. When you see someone eating a big juicy cheeseburger and chili fries , with a shake next to you at the dinner table. I used to eat like that every friday, and wondered all the time "Why I was so fat." Duh!! But I am h... Fri, 19 Jan 2007 15:33:49 EST turbo jam Ok I did the 10 workouts and I didnt lose 10 lbs or 10 inches but I did lose about 3 lbs and 2 inches off my chest and upper back, 2 inches off my waist and 2 inches off my hips and an inch on each calf. So a total of 8 inches. So it works great in my opinion. Might have lost the lbs also if I had followed her diet. But careful of your knee if you do this program and use the modification they give you because yesterday I hurt my knee. I think I twisted it so for a few days or so I am not... Tue, 16 Jan 2007 13:42:15 EST hig huggers? A few months ago my little sister gave me a pair of hip huggers that I couldnt even get my big butt into, and today I got them on and they fit perfectly. I was soooooooo freakin excited and thought it was so kewl that they fit. Its things like this that make losing weight and small sacrifices like no milkshakes and stuff well worth it. Like weight watchers say Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels. I am far far far from skinny but I am on my way. I am way healthier than I have been in ... Sat, 13 Jan 2007 20:03:26 EST Getting Started Ok I am finally getting started on my Turbo Jam. Before the holidays I tried but to much kept getting in the way. Well the holidays are over so no more excuses. I did it Friday, Saturday and Today. I am going to do it all this week and see how well it works. Heres hoping its all they claim it will be. Mon, 8 Jan 2007 20:29:09 EST Holidays Yaaaay the holidays are over and I am sooo glad. Now I can get back to normal. Only had a 1 lb weight gain over Christmas so thats good. I am glad that tomorrow is Jan. 1 and I am starting back on my program full steam ahead. I got my turbo jam stuff in a few days before Christmas and used it a few times but starting tomorrow I am going to do it for the 10 straight days and see what kind of inches and lbs I will lose, not that it matters as long as its some weight loss. Its fun to do and... Sun, 31 Dec 2006 11:07:11 EST trying a new exercise Ok yesterday I got in my turbojam dvds, Monday I am going to start it and see if the infomercial is correct. doubtful but it says 10lbs and 10 inches in 10workouts. I dont think it will work that well but I am hoping it will bump up what I already do. So I will try it for 10 workouts and check to see how well it does and I will let ya know. If I even lose 5 more than I have been losing then it will be worth it for me. Sun, 17 Dec 2006 17:01:11 EST Great !!!!! Hey guys I went shopping today, had to all my clothes were falling off of me.

Ok ya'll after falling and twisting my ankle and getting sick on top of that (UGH) I started back on my exercise today. I only did a mile walk tape but it felt great to just be up and running again. I also went outside and played tag with my daughter and nieces and I am proud to say NONE of them could catch me. lol Also I tried on my old faithful around the house jogging pants and they fell right off. Yeaaaaaaa Waaaaaaahooooo. Hope everyone else is doing great and thanks to all the su... Thu, 30 Nov 2006 17:07:47 EST ouch okay this sucks big time.

I just feel like I have no energy when its dreary out. It makes it hard to get up and be all excited about exercising when you just want to stay in your warm bed and wait out the cold rain.

I am still exercising everyday except for sunday. Me and the Lord both rest on that day. lol <BR> If anyone has any good tips or ideas please let me know. Sun, 12 Nov 2006 18:17:36 EST
