But, i'm really struggling!! At least it's not at an insulin level, that makes me happy!! Tue, 24 Feb 2015 12:36:03 EST blah http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5546983 I feel so unmotivated, yet I want results. Truly a quandry. I want this, I really do, I just don't think I can do it on my own.... Thu, 21 Nov 2013 13:32:28 EST Here I go again.... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5455233 I've been off a while. Then had surgery, (which was a GREAT thing, I'll post more later, it wasn't weight loss surgery) <BR> <BR> Here's to new beginnings!!!! <em>194</em> Wed, 14 Aug 2013 15:53:08 EST duh... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5384724 I fell off the wagon. Not horrendously, but fell off, none the same. I wasn't tracking...I don't even have a real good excuse...except laziness. :( Anyways...here I go again. At least I didn't gain everything back!!! Only a few pounds. Still....gggrrrr at myself!! <BR> <em>28</em> Mon, 10 Jun 2013 15:17:26 EST Whew!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5368352 I'm so glad to see a weight loss this week! 5 lbs!! This raises my motivation in a much needed way!! Yay!! Sun, 26 May 2013 11:15:50 EST Better.... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5367033 I've regained my "spark" :) I have done soooo much better tracking, and staying on track this week. I even went out to dinner tonight, and stayed within my plan! Yay!! Fri, 24 May 2013 20:29:59 EST Almost.... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5363214 I almost gave up. I didn't track for a couple days. Big Mistake!! I really can't do this on my own. I need, and I mean NEED sparkpeople!! I gained a pound. I knew I was going to. I was so discouraged. I'm sure this will just be a bump in the road, but it really made an impact. Which I guess is a good thing. Tue, 21 May 2013 09:31:10 EST I'm so mad... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5352163 at myself! I really blew it yesterday. I didn't eat breakfast or a morning snack...then I had a huge bulk of calories at lunch...then went out to dinner!! I don't think in the grand scheme of things I would have went over too much...but I'm just mad that I didn't follow the plan. I have a plan for a reason.....to avoid yesterday!! <BR> <BR> Oh well, today is a new day, and I am back to it..... Fri, 10 May 2013 12:48:37 EST Wondering.... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5350805 I'm wondering if I'm doing something wrong. I've started to feel hunger more often. I havn't been feeling that in the last couple of weeks, and all of a sudden, i'm like hungry...waay hungry right before meal times. Is this normal?? Thu, 9 May 2013 09:53:06 EST unbelief! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5346567 I am still in shock!! I lost another 6lbs!! That makes 18 lbs total! Woo Hoo!!!!!!! Thank you God, and thank you sparkpeople!!! Sun, 5 May 2013 19:34:33 EST tomorrow http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5345509 I'm so nervous about weigh in tomorrow...I hope I pull a big number, after just maintaining last week.... <BR> Sat, 4 May 2013 17:42:28 EST Sick http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5343161 I'm sooo sick right now. This cold might certainly be the death of me :) Not really, I'm over exaggerating..but I am pretty miserable. Thu, 2 May 2013 11:19:01 EST feeling better.... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5342119 I was pretty low on the self esteem scale, but after having a couple days being able to track my food again, I'm feeling better. Wed, 1 May 2013 14:44:29 EST Encouragement http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5340562 I'm so blessed by this community!! I log on, and see that people have encouraged me, and it helps make this so easier. Tue, 30 Apr 2013 10:06:53 EST week 3 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5340041 I was at a retreat all weekend. One that is highly filled with treats! I did good...I didn't have internet or cell service, so I couldn't track anything...meals were served in a "cafeteria" type setting, so I'm sure it's not what I would have chosen, had I been at home. However, I went ahead in my weigh in, I didn't lose, but I didn't gain either...so is this really a victory? I don't know.... Mon, 29 Apr 2013 21:42:26 EST The results... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5333938 My Dr. gave me a high 5!! I now know my scale at home is the same as the office ;) Yay Wed, 24 Apr 2013 09:57:06 EST Dr. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5333018 I don't think I've EVER looked forward to getting weighed at the Doctor's office. But I'm dying to know how accurate my scale at home is. Tue, 23 Apr 2013 13:39:46 EST Monday! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5331784 I didn't get to eat breakfast... I was in too much of a hurry and forgot to grab it... I hope it doesn't mess me up! (coming from a former non-breakfast eater) Mon, 22 Apr 2013 13:07:22 EST Weigh in Week 2! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5330554 I've lost another 5 pounds!! That makes 12 total!! I'm so impressed with this community!! I haven't added fitness yet, I plan to start that this week...I wanted to go slow and steady, so that I wouldn't quit...I think I'm hooked :) Sun, 21 Apr 2013 12:00:25 EST I peeked... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5328509 Since I'm still in such shock over losing 7lbs last week, I peeked at the scale each day. It wasn't a fluke!! I'm still losing :) Yay!!!! Fri, 19 Apr 2013 09:47:24 EST Still doing it! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5326154 I am so thankful today! I know God is helping me. And the prayers and encouragement from my friends. I'm a blessed woman!! Wed, 17 Apr 2013 09:13:17 EST Wow http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5322650 I lost weight!! 7 pounds!! I'm so in shock right now. Sun, 14 Apr 2013 10:07:32 EST Doing this... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5322048 I totally believe God is helping me here....I've maintained this "lifestyle" for 5 days... I've never lasted that long!! Sat, 13 Apr 2013 18:24:35 EST lunch http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5319697 A friend brought me lunch today, and at first, i was freaking out, b/c I didn't know what it would be, and I really want to avoid anything fast food. She brought me Brueggers. The nice thing about this, is I can stay within my calorie range, and it's not fried :) I will still have plenty of calories etc. left for dinner, and snack tonight. I finally am starting to believe I can do it!! Thu, 11 Apr 2013 13:16:03 EST 2 Days down... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5318154 I'm really focusing on staying within my calorie range. It's not too hard. I truly believe it's a battle of the mind!! I'm very weak, so I'm praying for so much strength!! Wed, 10 Apr 2013 09:45:31 EST ugh! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5315079 That pretty much sums it up...UGH! I want to feel better, I want to look better, I want to BE better!! Sun, 7 Apr 2013 21:01:24 EST
