I got up and put on nice clothes and did my makeup and I really feel like I can take the day on today. My daughter brought me a fiber bar so I am already starting out awesome!! And she is being relatively good looking at pictures. The little things get me through the day :) Fri, 8 Mar 2013 11:40:03 EST Here I go. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5102040 This is it.

Wed, 17 Oct 2012 00:50:53 EST Week 3 Reflection http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4588363 Weight: 197, -7 lbs <BR> <BR> I am in my fourth week now. I actually can't believe this is happening. And I kind of feel like putting myself down and saying 'Well, you didn't track and exercise everyday and you are weighing 1st thing in the morning so your weight probably went up!'. But you know what? I am not supposed to be perfect at this. I can take breaks and personal time for me. I can have that big slice of pizza guilt free. I can decide not to walk. Because this is what keeps me going... Thu, 17 Nov 2011 09:44:55 EST Week 1 Reflection http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4566457 Weight: 200, -4 lbs <BR> <BR> Well, I did it. I made it through an entire week, still motivated and ready to do this. However, I am disappointed that I didn't lose 5 lbs, so I am going to blog myself through it. First of all, I may have lost up to 7 lbs because I bought a new scale. The old one said 207, but the doctor weighed me at 204. That old scale now says 200. And I am just generally stressed out. But I need to get over that and focus on some goal setting. Because I did AMAZING this we... Thu, 3 Nov 2011 10:33:38 EST I Challenge You http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4485672 Ok, so I just weighed myself. I gained it all back. Why? Because I didn't commit myself to changing one small thing everyday. Or maybe I just went too fast. But, I really think it's time to step into Stage 2. I know exactly what I am doing wrong. So I challenge myself. One challenge a day for a week. Too bad all my motivation comes way late at night. <BR> <BR> 9/15 Challenge: Drink 8 little bottles of water. Wed, 14 Sep 2011 23:51:14 EST Two Years Later http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4449407 I just wrote a negative entry. Then went back and read blog posts from two years ago. <BR> It was amazing how much insight I had into myself. <BR> No more negatives. <BR> Set a daily goal, do it, feel good. <BR> <BR> Daily goal? 5 jobs apps, 1 walk, 1 exercise video, 1 liter of water. <BR> Start small, do well. <BR> <BR> The exercise video is accomplished. Wow. A simple 10 minute cardio routine sure kicked my butt. I think I'll be doing the beginner steps next time. Actually cooking lunch n... Fri, 26 Aug 2011 10:26:13 EST Oh, the pants. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2476634 So, I think a lot of us have done this. We buy an outfit or a piece of clothing (which is at least 3-5 sizes too small). And we say to ourselves "I am going to fit into that!! You just see". Well.. No. You probably don't fit into it. Still. I think my blogs are going to become little myth busters. For me anyhow, that pair of pants sits there, staring at me, mocking me. 6 months later my butt barely fits into the pants I already had. As you can imagine, those pants will certainly not be seeing... Tue, 13 Oct 2009 18:09:50 EST It's Not About You. It's about ME. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2458327 I hate to constantly state "hey, I'm starting over again!". It's so demotivating. Sometimes I just wish there was an hour to hour guide on how to lose weight personalized just for me. But it isn't going to magically appear. I know I have to try things and see what works for me. And then hey, I'll have my trusty guidebook to return to. But starting and getting into the habit is so hard. I mean, I'll go onto other people's pages and see all of their progress and the goals they met and I want it... Tue, 6 Oct 2009 20:44:08 EST
