JEANNIE52112's SparkPeople Blog JEANNIE52112's Blog on SparkPeople, home of free diet plans and a healthy living community Defeated So I am feeling totally defeated and it makes me so frusterated that I have allowed myself to get to this point. I have been down this weight loss rollercoaster so many times. Each time because I have had a baby, and I have taken off the weight, but it seems like this time is even more trying. I can count the reasons, this is #5 and I am so overwhelmed with taking care of 5 kids and working and its harder to make that small amount of time everyday for myself. I have been making excuses lately... Sun, 25 Jan 2015 09:16:30 EST so far so good So I officially started my healthy lifestyle changes on Monday Sept 1. Yes for some reason I always do better if I start on the 1st or a Monday, and this time it was extra perfect, bc It was the 1st of the month on a Monday ;) So I have been doing pretty awesome actually, eating wise. I am cutting all refined sugar and white flour out of my life. This is hard for me since I LOVE sweets. But I know that they are awful for my weight, and most of all the health of my body. I have been reading so... Thu, 4 Sep 2014 11:18:19 EST Im back and READY to start this awesome journey I love Sparkpeople, and I always find myself coming back here. I think its a great community and can be very motivating and full of support. Not to mention all of the information they have available for us with new ideas! <BR> I had a baby 8 weeks ago, and I am anxious to get back on track, I tried to keep as healthy as possible with this pregnancy, but to be honest the last few months were ruff. I stopped running and excercising pretty much altogether because I felt so crappy and HUGE! Bei... Sun, 24 Aug 2014 07:31:36 EST starting AGAIN So Ive been on this journey now for awhile...4yrs give or take a few months. i have lost 117lbs total. That sounds like alot. That IS alot, but you know whats so crazy is that I still feel like I look that same way that I did when I was super big. Size 24 pants to size 10. I still feel disqusted with my physical apearance at times, and then I look in the mirror and I see what a difference there is. I look at pictures, actually I showed a coworker today my fat pictures and she didnt believe... Thu, 8 Aug 2013 16:49:26 EST getting impatient. Im so frusterated this week...i havent really lost anything, just maintaining but i havent been eating bad at all and I have barley had ANY carbs and my protein levels are high. I guess its bc Im PMSing? I dont know but I am going to start my running up again and train for a 10k,. I havent ran for 3 months after I was running 5miles due to a heel injury. Im hoping its completley healed bc i really want to get back into running...i feel soooo much better. I just hate when I dont lose, its so d... Thu, 28 Mar 2013 16:04:43 EST Totally bummed. Almost two weeks ago I injured My heel while running 4-5 miles 4 days a week. I thought maybe it was plantar faciatis (my spelling is off) which is not an injury you really want as a runner. Sometimes it takes almost a year to heal if it gets really bad. I don't think that's what I have thank God! I think it is just inflammation of the tissues of my heal because I was wearing those toe sneakers to run in which doesn't really give much support but its like running barefoot which I Love! But I ... Sat, 26 Jan 2013 12:01:52 EST Scale obsession I've had this debate with myself for a long it good to weigh yourself everyday or every other day? When I way myself everyday (or just about everyday) I feel it helps me keep on track if I weigh myself in the morning and I'm up a pound or so when I'm at work and there's a bday party I'm more motivated to say NO to that yummy looking piece of cake. But on the flip side, when I weigh myself all the time it pretty much dictates my mood for the day, which is soooo not g... Wed, 9 Jan 2013 06:30:24 EST Bad bad choices :( So it's day #6 of my weight loss journey. I've been doing fairly well this first week until today...(and a little bit yesterday too) my daughters are quite the little bakers and its not helping me out any!!! My oldest got one of those cake pop makers and made some yummy cake pops and then my middle daughter decided she wanted to make some chocolate chip cookies... My weakness...and they were soooo yummy that I had some for breakfast. So my day started bad. Chocolate chip cookies + pmsing = di... Sun, 6 Jan 2013 18:30:11 EST Day #3 Im on day 3 of low carb/no sugar. And I want some sugar NOW! Even though I lost weight from October and then gained some back in Decemberat the beginning, then I ate and didnt hold back on anything over the holidays and I lost another 5 lbs! I dont know HOW that happened...but Im not complaining at ALL! So as of this morning, I have lost a total of 29lbs since June (having a baby and all) and I weigh less than what I did before I was pregnant. I have only 2.4lbs to lose before I am under 200 ... Wed, 2 Jan 2013 16:17:29 EST :) SO this is my very first blog entry...its hard for me to write or track food because we dont have internet at our house and the only access I have is at work (Im a nurse in an office and I dont have alot of time to get online at work, let alone write a blog entry :) But i will try to commit to once a week atelast. I also need to get some pics on here... <BR> So I actually started my diet at the beginning of October. I just had a baby at the end of June and managed to get back to my pregregnan...
