At first I said only one slice then, before I knew it, it was like 3. The pizza was a 14 inch pie and it was cut into 12 slices but even then it still equaled out to like 600 and some calories. Okay, I'm banned from going out to eat till I learn more self control. So many calories for such a tiny thing. <em>39</em> Mon, 14 Oct 2013 17:41:02 EST Energizer Bunny... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5511378 I can't sleep in anymore if I wanted to, my body is I guess feeling different because of exercising and eating healthier. My hubby cooked me breakfast this morning and than we both went on a walk. I'm so full of energy and I feel great. I want to remember this feeling and how my body feels so, when I even think about slacking I can stop myself. <em>521</em> <em>216</em> <em>52</em> Sat, 12 Oct 2013 09:01:48 EST BOOYAH!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5510895 Lost 2 pounds this week!! Touchdown! Spike the scale in the end zone! Chicken dance! Than chicken dance while spinning around!! O yeah, O yeah!! <em>224</em> <BR> <BR> Met my goal this week so excited! I'm now looking forward to weeks to come. Back in the game and feeling good. It was pouring down rain today but I still went on a walk, I love the rain! <em>257</em> <em>9</em> <em>334</em> Fri, 11 Oct 2013 15:27:34 EST Winters Coming! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5509100 I went for my walk today and I just about turned back around to grab my sweater because, the wind was chilly. Winter is around the corner and so, it got me thinking about signing up to a gym. I signed up before to a gym and eventually I would hardly ever go. I think it's more work to get ready to go to a gym and drive to the gym other than just putting on my shoes and walking out the door for a walk. In plus, I've had some crazy experiences in the gym so, maybe signing up to one is not a goo... Wed, 9 Oct 2013 15:36:47 EST Food Doesn't = happy! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5508204 Today has been one of those day where stuffing my face with anything like cheese cake, ice cream, pumkin pie, banana bread (and not just a piece) came to my mind a couple of times. I haven't read much about emotional eating but if I were to over eat today, I know it would be done on purpose because I'm thinking that maybe one of these tasty treats right now would calm down my nerves. BUT, I'm not going to!! I'm going to stay within my calories and continue drinking my water, take a nice hot... Tue, 8 Oct 2013 17:25:02 EST Good Day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5507248 Good day, I stayed within my calories and went for my walk. I just need to drink 4 more cups of water. <em>194</em> Mon, 7 Oct 2013 17:55:12 EST Beautiful Day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5506102 I went walking to the park and back with my kids just now. It is so beautiful outside, what a gift. I am getting stronger now as I'm walking. Towards the end my legs start to give up on me but I made it all the way today without asking my son to help hold me up. I hope as each day goes on and I keep on walking I get stronger. Now I'm going to go rearrange my room, time for a change. Sun, 6 Oct 2013 15:01:47 EST I need a PUSH! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5505324 Todays been pretty good. I went to work this morning for a couple hours. Then went to a community church event outside with free food and games for the kids. I've stayed within my calories today but I still need to drink a couple more cups of water and still go for my 30 minute walk. I feel so good lounging here on the coach, I'm just about to stay here and not move. I need some motivation. <em>134</em> Sat, 5 Oct 2013 16:14:03 EST Weigh in Day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5504244 First weight in since start over and I've lost 6 lbs!!! Awesome <em>224</em> <BR> Next goal 224 by the 11th. Fri, 4 Oct 2013 09:44:59 EST Hahahahahaha!!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5503260 Today would be one of those days where breaking my diet and everything else could come into my mind. Life!! Right now I am just laughing because it seems like everything is being thrown at me to see if I give up. But I'm just going to keep on and doing me and leave the rest in Gods hands. Still moving forward!!! Thu, 3 Oct 2013 08:31:48 EST Back Home http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5502807 I've been away from home working these past 3 days but luckily before I left I packed my cooler with healthy snacks and pre-packed dinner meals so, I wouldn't eat out and go over my calories. Fast food or eating at a restaurant could be dangerous for me right now. I know you can make healthy choice options when you go out to eat but knowing me right now, it's just safer to stay away and pack my own food. I did pretty good and made sure I walked on a treadmill at the hotels atleast 30 mins bef... Wed, 2 Oct 2013 19:58:25 EST Energized http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5498446 My energy level is off the roof. I could have sleep in today but I got up detailed cleaned the kitchen, made breakfast for the kids then we all went on a walk. I feel so much better now that I have changed my ways!! <em>104</em> Im thinking I'm going to have a salad with grilled chicken for lunch and continue finding cleaning projects to do around the house. Go, go, go, go nice to feel happy to move. <em>185</em> Sat, 28 Sep 2013 10:57:02 EST Starting Over!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5497950 This is really sad to say but I now weight 232lbs. BOOOOOOOOOO!! I've been struggling all for a long time with quitting smoking and I just wanted to be quit before I continued my weight lose. I figure what would be the point of eating right and exercising if I'm still killing myself with cigarettes. So these past 3 months I haven't smoked which is GREAT but in the meantime I have but on my weight again plus 12 pounds. Today I decided to start my weight lose journey again now that I've been s...

So excited and not believing it I'm pinching myself! I have lost a total of 24 pounds since I started about 3 months ago in January. Thats an average of 2 pounds a week. I feel soooooo much better. Clothes fit and I don't avoid mirrors anymore. I still have 40 lbs to go but losing these next 40 lbs is going to be done with joy. My next goal is to be in onederland by June 1st. I know I can do it thats, 11 lbs in 2 months. So EXC... Wed, 27 Mar 2013 07:13:12 EST 4 lbs lost since Accident. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5292076 I finally got to the store and bought my scale. 213lbs. lost 4 pounds since last weigh in. I'm glad I haven't gained since my accident. My initial goal was to be at atleast 210lbs by my anniversary which is tomorrow but I know now that has to be reset. 3lbs in one day is not happening. LOL!! Doing much better and looking forward to everything. I'm back to work and feeling good. Tue, 19 Mar 2013 08:27:39 EST Sent for a Spin!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5285094 Two days after writing my last blog, I was in a car accident where my car did a 360 in the snow and it hit a pole. So, for the past month I've been going through physical therapy and trying to get back on my feet. Thank God now I am fine I feel great and can't wait to get back to my routine of loving life. My life was on pause for a minute but, luckily I don't think I've gained any weight or lost for that matter any this past month. I plan on purchasing a new scale because I just got on mine ... Wed, 13 Mar 2013 10:36:51 EST Go Away!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5241454 I love a mix of all seasons thats why I love pennsylvania weather but cold weather go away already!

One step at a time I can do this!! <em>224</em> Wed, 6 Feb 2013 11:19:15 EST The Difference!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5238389 Been noticing a big difference in my body. I tried on my jeans that I had bought for Christmas and they don't fit right, they are saggy and baggy. WooHoo!! Not that that's money down the drain but that I can see the difference is great. I'll probably hand them down to someone. Tomorrows my weigh in day and despite what the scale may say same or minus, I know I'm on the right path. <em>9</em> Tue, 5 Feb 2013 08:52:33 EST SuperBowl Night!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5237119 Staying within my calories is getting much easier and I don't have that hungry feeling anymore as much as I did the first couple of days when I started but, this week has been the toughest with temptation around every corner. Thursay birthday party, friday food and movie night, Sunday Super Bowl. To much for me to handle I was this close to losing it last night. Of course there was pizza again!! <BR> Luckily, I planned ahead and made sure I saved 300 calories just for that one slice. But i... Mon, 4 Feb 2013 12:22:36 EST Movie and Food Night!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5233606 Friday nights at my house is the most tempting nights. We all gather around with or friends watch movies and have anything from pizza, subs, soda, ice cream , fast food, popcorn with extra butter and chips on the menu. Tonight I myself choose subway and an ice cream cone from weight watchers and my trusty glasses of water. Everyone else is having the usual. Fridays are hard so I have to stay focused and " stuck to my guns!" Even though I'm missing out on the tons of melted cheese on the pizza... Fri, 1 Feb 2013 18:21:52 EST Lo and Behold!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5230023 Today's weigh in day for me so, drum roll please!! I lost 3 pounds this week!! I truly can' t believe it! I only went walking once this week, I even went over my calories twice this past week so I'm scratching my head, impossible how!?! The only thing I can think is that I completely cut out mayonnaise and butter from my diet this past week. Not complaining I'll take it! Just surprised!! 50 more to go let's do this!! <em>9</em> <em>244</em> Wed, 30 Jan 2013 10:19:22 EST Tough Week! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5226682 I don't have access to a gym so I've decided to go walking for my exercise but these snow storms and freezing weather has made it impossible for me to go on my walks. Thursday freezing, Friday and Saturday snow, snow, snow. Today another snow storm and then it looks like I may be able to get one walk in before my weigh in day on Wednesday. I've been eating pretty good this week despite all that so I should lose something right?! Mon, 28 Jan 2013 08:10:39 EST Lost 4lbs!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5220129 Todays Wednesday my weigh in day and I've lost 4lbs this week. Total lost 11lbs in 3 weeks!! My next short term goal is to lose atleast 4 more lbs by Valentines day. I am so happy I decided to change this gaining weight around. It's funny how one can get so lost and when one finds their way again it's like how could I have ever allow that to happen. Feeling good and looking ahead!! <em>381</em> Wed, 23 Jan 2013 12:42:07 EST Tomorrows weigh in day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5219233 I think I'm doing pretty good this week! Exercising, tracking calories, drinking water! Lets see what happens! Last week I lost zero lbs so I'm pretty anxious about tomorrow! Tue, 22 Jan 2013 21:20:12 EST Yes or NO?!? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5217406 One more day after today then It's my weigh in day. I keep checking myself out in the mirror and I can see a difference so I hope the scale shows it as well cause last week I didn't lose not even one pound. I know it's going to take much larger to take it off then to put it on but some sign of progress would be great. <BR> Today one of my co-workers made me some turn overs stuffed with carrots, green peppers, red peppers, yellow peppers, broccolli, string beans, onions, potatoes, and cheese... Mon, 21 Jan 2013 17:39:44 EST The first step to recovery is admitting you have a problem!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5214328 Hi!! My name is Dally and I am a Mayoholic. I love mayonnaise on everything. I believe a sandwich is just not a real sandwich without some Hellmans mayonnaise. I can also write a book on several recipes that Hellmans mayonnaise goes great with but, that would take a couple of weeks to write the book so, long story short I am here to try and Quit mayonnaise. And I'm not talking about low fat or miracle whip no no no absolutely no substitutions for me it has to be Hellmans REAL mayonnaise. This... Sat, 19 Jan 2013 13:12:57 EST So Happy Walking!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5212603 Today I feel really good and I'm ready to go out see do my job, then rush back home and get my walk in.

I just can't wait till Wednesdays weigh in day because I know this week I have definitely lost weight even my son says my stomach looks smaller. So excited and looking forward to everyday. <em>9</em> Fri, 18 Jan 2013 08:13:14 EST Health is Wealth!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5210415 So today is my weigh in day and I got a doughnut on the scale. Not surprised because I'm thinking since I lost 7lbs the first week my bodies probably in survival mood or maybe I gained muscle? Who knows!! I'm just going to keep on trying and doing what I've been doing eating right exercising and believing in myself. <BR> I just starting taking vitamins. I good some multivitamins, fiber and fish-oil. The multivitamins I'm taking to fill in the gaps I may have with nutrient... Wed, 16 Jan 2013 17:49:20 EST Just Blogging...... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5205656 Sparkpoints are hard to keep up with I usually miss a couple days of collecting points because it takes up to much of my time but I am trying to atleast once a day write a blog. Just to make sure I'm keeping myself in check and it also allows me to fiqure out whats going on in my head. It's like talking out loud. LOL! This weekend has been good staying within calories and I walked Friday my regular 30 mins plus an extra 2 hours when I took my kids out to see the Farm Show. It was fun seeing a... Sun, 13 Jan 2013 20:41:34 EST Why!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5200226 I was very happy yesterday with my results on the scale it gave me energy and motivation but, today I glanced in the mirror and felt so disappointed, sad and upset. I'm glad that I decided to start eating healthy again and exercise so I can lose this weight that I've put back on but, why did I allow myself to go there again. I was such in a good place all my clothes fit me, I felt good and people would compliment me often beside your occasional hater that would say you should stop losing weig...

Usually I skip breakfast all together run to work and then realize later that I didn't eat anything and end up going to the drive thru and ordering something unhealthy and loaded with calories. <BR> I ate an egg, piece of toast and a banana this morning not bad but it's gonna take me some time getting use to taking time out for breakfast. <BR> I'm more Aware of things around me, aware of my health, aware that what I'm doi... Tue, 8 Jan 2013 06:55:14 EST Down but, not Out!!!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5194740 Okay so yesterday I should have brought along dinner. I ended up eating pizza one cupcake and soda. I went way over calories. So, today's a new day and with that lessen learned I'm ready to workout and keep a better track on what I'm eating. Only two more days till weigh in and I will see how I did this week. So excited and motivated today just can't wait for my walk today!!

I felt good and I could breath normally without struggle. I didn't have to stop for any breaks or lean up against a wall. I had gained 64 lbs back after losing 130lbs so, I know just in that itself has not done any good for my body. I want to get back in shape. Not being able to walk is really a smack in the face of reality. I'm only 35 not 95 I should be walking... Sat, 5 Jan 2013 13:38:26 EST I got that feeling back again!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5189455 Getting ready for work and I thought I write a quick note on how I feel. I feel so energized ready to go and I just can't wait till weigh in I can already feel the difference. I work till about 2 today so I will be getting my walk in about 3 or so but so looking forward to it. It's funny how I feel so motivated now and when I think back how so unmotivated I became I allowed myself to gain most of my weight back. I don't ever want to feel that way again!!! This feeling is to good and I am so h... Fri, 4 Jan 2013 06:24:29 EST Day Two http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5187552 Yesterday I went a little over my calories. I had spaghettis and didn't measure my portions out before serving myself. So for the next time I have to remember to measure! Portion Control! Ok a few more days and I'll get back in the swing of things. <BR> This morning up bright and early and going to get ready to go on a walk with my hubby. This is going to be great getting it out of the way so early. Here we GO!!!! Thu, 3 Jan 2013 06:36:55 EST Day Numero Uno!!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5185833 Today is day 1. I want to lose 64 pounds before my birthday this year in November. I know it's possible atleast one to two pounds a week. I still need to sign up at the gym meanwhile I guess I'm gonna be layering up and going for a walk today. But before the 9th definitely need to sign up. I've also changed my work schedule so that no matter what at 2 o'clock everyday my butt will have no excuse not to work out. My hubbies also going to join me which is a great motivater. Just the beginning ... Wed, 2 Jan 2013 10:35:59 EST
