I haven't seen 329 or have been in the 320s in four years now! I'm so excited! I haven't been exercising due to personal reasons, but I have been watching what I eat. I have a very long way to go, but my motto is, "One step at a time, One day at a time". And more good news, I've been taken off my acid reflux medicine! There has been the occasional time whe... Wed, 11 Sep 2013 15:44:41 EST Birthdays, Holidays, Cakes, Pies Oh My! Nutrition Update. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5476948 Hi Everyone, <BR> <BR> In my last blog post, I blogged about having a nutrition appointment. I had that today, unfortunately, I had to reschedule. But the good news is that I still have time before the appointment to lose a little weight. I've been side tracked a little and stopped working out since yesterday. But I'm not beating myself up about it. That's actually a positive thing, because in the past, I would have threw in the towel when I didn't exercise and say to myself, "I'll start bac... Thu, 5 Sep 2013 16:26:42 EST My Goals for September http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5472960 Hi Everyone! <BR> <BR> I thought I'd write my blog for the month of September. <BR> <BR> My favorite seasons are the fall and winter seasons. I love the cool autumn breeze, the leaves changing colors and falling off the trees. <em>465</em> <em>426</em> <em>465</em> <em>465</em> <BR> <BR> This month in September, I have a nutrition appointment this week and I'm very nervous, but excited. I just want to say that I love Sparkpeople and my Spark friends very much and you guys supp... Sun, 1 Sep 2013 21:42:02 EST Eating "heavy"food out of control(But not beating myself up about it)/WATP Workout http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5451992 For the last two weeks maybe three, I haven't been the best at eating healthy. I've been eating nothing but tacos, spaghetti, raisin bran and applesauce, in addition to pastries. I feel disgusted with myself, but I'm not beating myself up about it. I haven't felt bloated or anything. I just feel like crap after I've eaten something heavy. Don't get me wrong, I've been eating fruits and vegetables here and there on a budget when we can afford it, but when those fruits and vegetables leave the ... Sun, 11 Aug 2013 18:18:01 EST Our bodies are like a cars..... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5409980 Earlier today was not a good. But I feel okay now. After a few weeks of no fast food, I ordered two tacos and a plain chicken sandwich, which ended up being my late breakfast. A few hours later, I suffered from dizziness and headaches. <em>198</em> <BR> <BR> I KNEW it was the fast food and in addition to the fast food, I had a small soda and some chocolate. All which I knew caused my ill feeling today. I told myself, "No More, No More. I see it now". And I do see it now. I see what we pu... Wed, 3 Jul 2013 20:25:44 EST My smoothie challenge http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5391295 Hi SparkPeople, <BR> <BR> I've been thinking about trying smoothies again. I haven't tasted a smoothie since I was a little kid and I remember not liking the taste. I'm off to college soon and I'm a little way behind on the smoothie trend, especially green smoothies. I was laughing earlier because my Mom with sense of humor, wanted me to stop yapping about smoothies smoothies smoothies! haha haha! <BR> <BR> In reality, I've always wanted to try them but was a bit nervous because, I feared ... Sun, 16 Jun 2013 22:17:49 EST Can I call this an accomplishment? Yes! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5374040 <em>224</em> <BR> <BR> Hello my fellow Sparkers! <BR> <BR> I believe I may have been away from Spark for two months maybe a little more. But it was for the best. During that time, I had a reconnection with my body and some soul searching from it. For the past several months, and even years, my body has spoken to me, but not like several months ago. I had been battling painful cramps, sulfur burps, food poisoning, nausea, vomiting, hard breathing and everything in between, you get the ide... Fri, 31 May 2013 21:40:38 EST Update since last blog(Positive) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5287143 When I wrote my last blog, I felt hopeless, didn't know where to begin, etc. <em>39</em> <BR> <BR> Since February 8, 2013, I've had some setbacks and slipped into some of old habits, but the difference was this time, I hopped right back on the wagon. I didn't get mad or upset that I went a step back, so what if I had three cookies or three slices of pizza! I didn't let it get the best of me like before. I'm learning new things everyday! It's now day 5 of no sugary drinks and week 2 of no... Thu, 14 Mar 2013 23:24:27 EST I feel hopeless http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5243369 I would like to get back on track to a healthier lifestyle. So much has changed in my health since I've joined Sparkpeople. I have high blood pressure, edema, acid reflux, chest pains, lactose intolerance. I've been eating so poorly for days and months now, my mouth is dry, I can't think straight, low energy, fatigue, etc. I'm only 22 and my weight is now 345. I was listening to my Mom tell stories of how I used to LOVE eating my fruits and vegetables as a kid and very little meat. Now, I don... Fri, 8 Feb 2013 22:16:31 EST A Blog to look back on! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5015590 This is a special blog entry for looking back on. <BR> <BR> <BR> <BR> I haven't been honest with myself, my family and my health. Who am I to tell the next person/people I love and care about to eat more healthier and move more, when I'm not doing it myself. It's time to lead by example and hopefully I can encourage my family that they can do it as well. SparkPeople members, our families away from family, WE can do this!!! <em>306</em> <em>381</em> <BR> <BR> I can't speak for everyone... Tue, 14 Aug 2012 19:26:59 EST
