I have seen others lose more than this in a week and I always wonder what they are doing and why can't it be me with those losses. Well, I will take this just as if I met my goal. I have been literally working for months on exercising and what I should eat and I was at a complete stand still. Last weekend my mother had read an article about polycystic ovarian syndrome (POS) and said that the only way they lost weight was on a low carb diet. I could kick mysel... Tue, 19 Jun 2012 11:57:28 EST Seriously! Argg! That's all I have to say today. I felt like I had a good weekend (went to the zoo and walked forever) and worked out hard last night. I weighed in this morning and was so excited to lose a pound but no........I pretty much stayed the same (2 ounce gain). It is so frustrating. I should have lost around 10 lbs considering how long I have been working out and watching my calorie intake. Even though I know where I should be, I am still going to keep my head up. I know I can do better on the... Tue, 5 Jun 2012 13:03:39 EST Finally Feeling Better Yesterday was the first day that I felt like I had enough energy to do some kind of exercise. I ended up doing 31 minutes of Yoga. It felt really good to get back into sweating. My food choices weren't the best still though. I was thinking that I wouldnt weigh in this morning on my normal day because I gained another pound but I have to be honest with myself and with spark People. I can't just deny the fact that I gained weight. I am trying to stay positive and tell myself that I finally feel... Tue, 29 May 2012 11:54:42 EST Blaa! I have not weighed in for 2 weeks now. I Was in jury duty last week and was not able to have a microwave or even a fridge to put my food. It made it very difficult to stay on my diet as well as drink my water because we couldn't just get up and go pee. Lol. I did however still do my exercises afterwards and I think that's why I didn't gain as much as I thought I would. I still gained though. Now, this week I am horribly sick with a cold. I feel defeated. I want to lose weight and have realize... Tue, 22 May 2012 11:26:40 EST Todays weigh in I am so happy with todays weigh-in. I didn't make the best choices over the weekend and did not drink my water like I should have. On Monday I was busy with dr's appt and that messed up my routine as well but I made sure to have a healthy dinner and I did some jumping jacks and some jump rope to get my heart rate up. I really didnt think that I would lose anything. I know I started out on Spark People at 194 but before I really got into losing weight and being healthy I went up to almost 196!... Tue, 8 May 2012 12:43:43 EST So thankful For the past couple of weeks I have been trying to grow as a person. For some reason I have felt this urge to learn more and open my eyes to other things that I may not have been seeing. Like so many others, I have taken things for granted. Not purposefully, just on accident From the day in and day out life I have been living, things sorta started to mesh together in a rhythm of waking up, going to work, coming home, cooking dinner and going to bed. I started to read the Spark People book and... Thu, 3 May 2012 14:32:01 EST
