I have been between 180-193 for the past 5 months. I just saw a picture of myself and I can't believe this is who I have become! Another person I know lost a tremendous amount of weight but I can't seem to get out of the 180s! I was upset with myself a few years ago because for years I couldn't get out of the 150s! I didn't even post pictures back t... Thu, 25 Jul 2013 22:03:03 EST this is hard http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5351515 for the past couple of days i have been trying to stay below 1300 calories. But I am still hungry and want more so that is all i can think about. i really want to give up but i am slowly trying to just take one day at a time. Thu, 9 May 2013 22:52:45 EST Need a month off! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5278893 What I need is a month off to just focus on working out and better eating habits. Since early last year I gave up coke and burgers but I have not lost weight from it at all! Well it is more than one year now and I had told myself that in 2013 I would go back to eating burgers and drinking coke (of course in moderation). But now I decided that I would reward myself with those treats only when I reach my 160s. My friend told me that I am only depriving myself but I don't see it that way. ... Fri, 8 Mar 2013 12:55:57 EST My plan for the Holiday Break http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5152047 Below are a list of what I plan to do during my break: <BR> <BR> 1. Drink lots of water <BR> --------drinking water will hopefully curb my appetite <BR> 2. Start jogging more instead of just walking (since I don't need to track fitness minutes I can stop worrying about getting the most minutes in a day) <BR> ---------jogging will help me burn calories <BR> 3. Eat less meat and more veggies <BR> ---------eating more veggies will help me to get in more fiber and help me lose weight <BR> 4. ... Fri, 30 Nov 2012 21:25:00 EST Easy day so far http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5140677 So it is Monday and I have been good so far. I have been eating fruits and veggies so far. I did have a zucchini bread today for lunch but the rest of my calories were not that bad. Now if I could just stay in this frame of mind for the rest of the week.

Sat, 17 Nov 2012 20:15:37 EST Thanksgiving week...going to be hard http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5138685 This is one of the hardest weeks for me in terms of eating. I only eat this type of food once a year so I want to be able to enjoy it. I am going to follow the advice of my fellow Starlets and eat small amounts and try to eat only once. One plus is that we are eating at noon so I can hopefully burn it off. I really want to be down to 165 by December 31 but I doubt that will be possible so the best I can hope for is 173. At this point I am just really sick of always having to think about ... Sat, 17 Nov 2012 19:48:56 EST Not a bad start to a new week http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5109328 This week is not so bad but then again it is only Monday. Is it wrong that I am really getting tired of all the vegetables we have to eat? I know it is good for me but I am just not used to these many vegetables in one day. Not complaining just making comments <em>20</em> <BR> <BR> I am so wide awake for some reason but not wide awake enough to actually do anything productive <em>30</em> <BR> <BR> My friend is starting to try and get out of going on our walk/run in the evenings b...

Eat more vegetables on a daily basis <BR> 2. Drink 8 or more glasses of water <BR> 3. Sleep at least 6 hours nightly <BR> 4. Exercise at least 1 hour every day <BR> 5.

Cut back on my coffee intake <BR> 8. Spend more time outdoors <BR> <BR> <B... Sat, 20 Oct 2012 21:17:48 EST 3 things I love about myself http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5100254 1. I love my feet <BR> 2. I love that I care about what people think and feel (sometimes that hurts me but I still love myself for being that way) <BR> 3. I love my widow's peak (not sure why i love that but i just do) Mon, 15 Oct 2012 17:43:55 EST 3 things I love about myself http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5098755 1. I love that I love going to church <BR> 2. I love my ears <BR> 3. I love that I have dark hair Sun, 14 Oct 2012 15:25:00 EST 3 Things I love about myself-Saturday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5098001 1. I love that I don't like to be idle <BR> 2. I love that I am accommodating <BR> 3. I love that I like to be around people Sat, 13 Oct 2012 21:29:23 EST 3 Things I love about myself http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5096379 The first thing I love about myself is that I am genuinely a kind person. Secondly, I love that I rarely hold grudges. You have to really do something to hurt me or my family or did the same offense more than 10x. The third thing I love about myself is that I care about people. It matters to me how others feel and I will never accept or understand when people tell me to just worry about myself and no one else. Fri, 12 Oct 2012 11:18:43 EST Eating right takes practice http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5094326 Eating is my biggest issue. Not that I don't eat enough but I eat too much. I am guilty of being addicted to meat. I do like other things like fruits and vegetables but before the BLC20 challenges, I didn't eat fruits and vegetables as consistently. I have tried new vegetables and fruits and now I know which ones I like and don't like. <BR> <BR> (Vegetables) Like: okra, bitter gourd, baby spinach, zucchini, carrots, corn, green beans, green peas <BR> <BR> <BR> (Vegetables) Dislike: ... Wed, 10 Oct 2012 17:36:06 EST New Week http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5090878 So today is a new week and my aim is to better at eating right and exercising than last week. Being part of the BLC20 challenge is really helping me because it is making me be accountable for my actions and making me push myself harder. I have been losing weight each week but not much which is disappointing. All I can do is try harder and smarter. Mon, 8 Oct 2012 07:30:05 EST Not a very successful day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5056844 I didn't realize I ate so much until I sat down and had to track my calories! The positive is that I did walk around a lot today. But tomorrow is another day so I will concentrate on less protein and carbs and more on vegetables and fruits. I need to remind myself "All in moderation"... The other positive is that I was really wanting chocolate covered almonds but I did not give in to that temptation <em>224</em> Wed, 12 Sep 2012 22:23:05 EST 12 week plan http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5056516 <em>341</em> Creative Writing 101: My 12 week plan is to to do at least 30 minutes of exercise a day (gym, treadmill, track or stairs). The way I plan to do it is to use 30 minutes of my lunch hour to workout. If I get busy or have plans for lunch, I am not going to deprive myself. Instead, I will make myself workout right after work. Also, I will be drinking at least 8 glasses of water. The way I plan to do this is to carry my water bottle with me everywhere and take little sips th... Wed, 12 Sep 2012 18:35:47 EST Stay positive and keep moving http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5056163 I am trying my best to only take stairs today and to drink as much water as I can. I was a little annoyed earlier today because it really bothers me how some people seem to be nicer to people who are mean to them. And then ignore the people who really do care and are nice. I have seen this for years from people of all ages. Nothing I really can do to change the way people are so just got to keep my focus elsewhere. Wed, 12 Sep 2012 14:05:34 EST Great day! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5055344 Today was a pretty good day working out. I walked with a friend for 3 miles, did strength training and 15 minutes on treadmill. The bad part of my day was when I got home and ate way more than I should. I wish I could say I was an emotional eater or something. But honestly, I just love food! <em>53</em> Wed, 12 Sep 2012 00:14:55 EST 07/11/2012 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4967422 Have a bad cold but the benefit is that it makes me not want to eat. Always look at the bright side of things <em>30</em> Thu, 12 Jul 2012 15:31:07 EST 06/29/2012 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4948030 Last night I went walking for about 1 hour and 15 minutes and I did 20 minutes on the elliptical. However, when I got home I was starving so I ate 2 cups of cooked rice, goat curry, pickle, beans and 2 beef cutlets. And then a piece of cake :( This is why I can't track my food because I eat too much! Tonight I can't work out because I am going out for a party and I am so exhausted from work and annoying people. I know..I know...these are just excuses. Tomorrow will be another day! Fri, 29 Jun 2012 17:55:09 EST new day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4946523 All I had today was 2 small cranberry muffins with a little margarine and 1 appam and egg curry. That is probably already about 700 calories but I still haven't had my lunch yet! The portion control thing is way too hard and depressing. I just want to eat whatever I want and not have to worry about it. But I guess that is not the way it works. On the positive, I did walk for an hour and 15 minutes in the heat and hopefully I will be able to do it again today. Thu, 28 Jun 2012 16:11:41 EST Hopefully one day I will be running :) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4945167 Today I am going to walk again with my friend. I need to get back into a routine of working out. I used to work out at least 4 days a week and now I barely do 1. It is really hot outside but I know if I use that as an excuse I will never go. I hate working out indoors because I get bored which is not a good reason but its my reason. Anyway, wish me luck! Wed, 27 Jun 2012 18:33:02 EST Day 1 again :( http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4945145 Once again I am starting over trying to lose weight. This is getting frustrating because everytime I lose weight I end up gaining it back and then more. But I am not going to give up. I will keep trying with the hopes that one day I will meet my goal. Wed, 27 Jun 2012 18:18:12 EST 06-08-09 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2134339 I am really getting of sick of watching what I eat. I guess I am having a Monday :( <BR> Hopefully this time I will stick to losing weight and exercising because I am really tired of being unhealthy. <BR> <BR> <BR> <em>198</em> Mon, 8 Jun 2009 18:01:32 EST
