I started drinking pop here and there and then it was one everyday sometimes more...I stopped taking my supplements and overall just wasn't trying to lose weight. The last 2 weeks I have been trying harder, but still not to my full potential. <BR> <BR> I had a goal for myself today and I am .1 lb off of it(230.0). Which is good but would've loved to see the 220's, feel like I let myself down...again.So this week I am goi... Mon, 18 Mar 2013 10:57:19 EST Goal for Monday morning weigh in.... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5286614 Well, I was 231.2 on Monday. So I am back on the wagon. I wanna be under 230 lbs when I weigh in on Monday. I was 230.8 this morning so I am starting to make a little progress again. I went and bought a new workout dvd last night. Jillian Michaels Kickbox FastFix. I must say, I sweated more in two of her 20 minute workouts than in 40 minutes of my beachbody dvd. I am gonna try to work up to doing all three 20 minute workouts a day. If I can't make progress doing that, than I am really doing ... Thu, 14 Mar 2013 13:47:38 EST So hard staying with the program, but starting fresh...again http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5277717 I gained 5 pounds back last month because...well...I got lazy. Sad with all the progress I was making. I guess I thought I deserved to slack a little, but a little slack turned into more like a month. Before I know it, the weight started creeping back. I have worked out a few days this week and have been trying to watch my food choices better. I have 1.2 pounds to go till I am back where I was before I fell off the wagon. <BR> <BR> The seamstress came and took measurements and my dress for ... Thu, 7 Mar 2013 16:58:29 EST Ughh....been disappointed in myself http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5249107 Well I haven't gotten too far in the last 2-3 weeks. The weekends hit me pretty hard while trying to spend time with my fiance and then two of my sons celebrated their birthdays. So between chinese food, ice cream cake, regular b-day cake and just the overall feeling of "I don't wanna have to watch everything I eat all the time"...it just got the best of me. <BR> <BR> I started out this week better than I was doing though. I worked out 50 minutes today. And I did some major house cleaning ... Wed, 13 Feb 2013 13:01:30 EST Week 3.....I'm still here http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5222624 I haven't been good this entire week. But I haven't been terrible either. I had to weigh myself this morning to see what damage I thought I had done and to my surprise the scale had actually gone down. 238.2lbs I thought NO WAY, so I took measurements to see if there were any changes....and sure enough, waist came in 1.25" smaller and hips were 1" smaller. My chest was even .75" smaller and both thighs(which I am terribly self concious over) down .5" each!!! I can't believe it. I am so happpy... Fri, 25 Jan 2013 07:36:22 EST A new week http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5216927 I am so excited! First off, I weighed in this morning at only 5 lbs less then my starting weight, but, I am out of the 240's, which in itself I am proud of. I am 239.6. On top of that, I did my measurements and I am down another whopping 5.5 inches overall. So a total of 8 inches lost in just 2 weeks. A whole inch off my waist and 1.5 inches off my hips since my last measurements. I picked up my wedding gown yesterday and am soooo excited to wear it this June. I am hoping I can get down to a ... Mon, 21 Jan 2013 11:26:16 EST Almost 2 weeks in, and... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5212667 After almost 2 weeks I am down almost 5lbs, and am 2.5inches smaller overall. I slacked off the first few days of this week. My fiance wanted to go out for Chinese Sun afternoon, I didn't eat as much as I used to but I know it was still more than I should've. I figured I'd count it as a cheat day. But then we had to do some running around Monday night and he opted for grabbing pizza on the way home rather than me making dinner since it was already getting late. So again, not what I should've... Fri, 18 Jan 2013 09:03:04 EST So far so good... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5202079 Well I got my new scale on Sunday night and weighed in at 247.2 lbs and all but 50% bodyfat, YUCK! My suspicions were true. I had gained about 10 lbs since I last weighed myself. This is the heaviest I have ever been and I don't like it one bit. <BR> <BR> My fiance is 269lbs. I am trying to cook meals that are not only healthier for me but my whole family as well. My oldest was chubby from about 8 years old till he was 13. He finally hit a growth spurt and he went from a little boy to a y... Fri, 11 Jan 2013 11:53:10 EST Tonight I find out how much I really weigh.....UGHHH http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5189986 I haven't weighed myself in months and I know I've gained weight just by the way my clothes don't fit me. My scale quit working a while back so tonight I am going to buy a new one to get my official starting weight. I am dreading it!! Back in 2006 I lost 35 lbs on my own by eating better and exercising. I got down under 200 and swore I'd never let myself go back. Here I am though after keeping it off for 2 years, back at my heaviest ever. <em>15</em> <BR> <BR> I refuse to get married un...
