Focusing only on my failures. <BR> <BR> I wanted so badly to get fit and look and feel good on my trip to DR. I didn't lose a pound, and my body didnt change. I still had a great time, but I hardly took any pictures and finched every time my friends did because I knew how bad I was going to look. Its made me so depressed about myself. <BR> I know there are people way worse off than I am...

For those of you who don't know what that is, its a giant glutten fest haha. <BR> Ate so many delicious fried things and beer, I love it. I didn't gain anything from it though so I don't feel to bad! <BR> Yesterday I got home late from work and then had to feed the husband, finish up ebay things, and then head out to the airport to pick up the motherinlaw in the RAINSTORM. <BR> It sucked. <BR> But I WILL get back...

I've been at this for a while now, i'm just not seeing any changes. I know I must be getting stronger, because my workouts arent hurting the next day as much as they used to. I can feel that I am gaining more endurance. I'm just not seeing the results I want. <BR> 90% of the time I eat around 1,200 calories, of those are healthy meals, protein shakes, fruit and veggies, not my usual pasta and whatnot.

It was a heartbreaking past few days. <BR> 330am on thursday we were woken up by my husbands sister freaking out saying we needed to go to the hospital. Then about 2 min later his mom called and said his dad was in an ambulance on his way to the hospital and she didnt think he was alive.

Mon, 14 May 2012 09:13:48 EST Question http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4870009 How do you all find balance on the weekends? <BR> I'm not going out partying and whatnot haha, but its kinda hard to keep on track when i'm not at home. If I am around my own house its a little easier. But like this weekend I went back to my home town for a grad party and spent the weekend with my parents. So i got off my exercise schedule and way off the diet. <BR> How do you do it? <BR> Or better yet...

And just like everyday, my weight hadn't changed. I was not ready to accept this fact. I worked my butt off in the gym and when i got home for the last two days, not to mention all last week. I know I'm not looking for a miracle but some reassurance would be nice. So i did it. I got back on the scale, gave it a death glare and there it was. 2lbs...gone. <BR> I almost didst believe it, so i got on it again, and it was still the 2lbs gone! <BR> So ...

I need to lose 50lbs, and its not just a crazy number i thought up cut i hate my body, no, i really do need to lose it. I'm overweight, and its killing me. <BR> <BR> I've started out going to the gym for 30-60 min at least... Mon, 30 Apr 2012 21:13:05 EST
