Thu, 20 Jun 2013 17:11:43 EST GRRRR http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5395544 Okay I had this long ass blog written and I DID NOT HAVE HTML in it, and it said I did! UGH. I'll try to repost it later I guess. No time to write now. <BR> <BR> Highlights: <BR> <BR> Walked over 11,000 steps. <BR> 5 floors --that's the equivalent to the hollywood sign <BR> 3rd Consecutive Day of Drinking 1 bottle of water. 16.9oz <BR> Gym Tomorrow <BR> No More Sweets except my weight watchers, smart ones, and organic. <BR> I lost weight when I was eating a bowl of organic ice cream a day. ... Wed, 19 Jun 2013 19:40:19 EST FitBit! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5388119 So I splurged today. I spent a lot more money than I should've since I only had 122$ and owe 60$ to my mom. But I spent 93 dollars on the FitBit One. It should be here tomorrow since I used overnight shipping. (What? It was only 3$ so I said why not!) <BR> <BR> I have a new page on facebook and I would really love it if everyone would like it. Here's the link: www.facebook.com/turningitaround <BR> <BR> I've been so hungry the past few days. Blahh!!! I've also been dehydrated. =/ Need some w... Thu, 13 Jun 2013 14:37:59 EST Please Like My Page! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5387301 Hi Guys! It's me again! I have a huge favor to ask. Okay so it's a small favor but a favor nonetheless! I just created a page on facebook, and I would love it (and be forever grateful) if you would like the page and then share it with all your friends and family! <BR> <BR> I know there's a LOT of fitness, recipes, motivation, ext sites out there and no one wants another one, but I created one anyway because I feel like there can never be too much motivation, and recipes in the world. Each pe... Wed, 12 Jun 2013 20:19:46 EST Turning it Around! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5382911 Hey! Okay! So yeah! I decided to weigh myself tonight (it was about 9 or 10pm) and I was 214.4 which is down from the 215.6 i was the other day. So glad I'm turning it back around and heading in the right direction! My "Official" weigh in is at 3pm tomorrow. <BR> <BR> Hopefully it's even better and closer to where I want to be! I just hope all the changes I'm going to be making this week will help even more. <BR> <BR> I also need to try to drink more water. That one will be the hardest of t... Sat, 8 Jun 2013 23:03:00 EST Whoo! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5382749 Okay so today seems pretty good so far. Went to the store, and of course this store didn't have any decent jeans by the brand I wear. (I like certain brands better because they fit better, and last longer!) <BR> <BR> For food I had a veggie chicken sandwich, peas, black bean veggie burger, swiss cake roll, and my weight watchers ice cream bar. <BR> <BR> At midnight I'm resetting and starting a new chapter in my book. It's similar to the last, but more effective. My goal is to go to the gym ... Sat, 8 Jun 2013 19:53:49 EST splurge! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5381928 let's try this again. tried posting a bit ago and it wouldnt because i did the symbol of a heart and it said "no html" psh. <BR> <BR> so today i had krispy kreme donuts, and mcdonalds french fries. i was craving mcdonalds french fries all day, and really that's been the only thing i've eaten today other then my veggie burger. i look at it like this, you need 1 day where u can splurge or else your body will get immuned to what your doing and won't loose weight or anything like that. <BR> <B... Fri, 7 Jun 2013 22:21:06 EST I'm Back!!!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5379362 Okay, so I just learned how important SparkPeople is to my weight loss. I haven't been on much over the next week or two because I haven't had internet access and I've gained weight during this time. I'm back up to 215 as of 302pm today. :( I have until around 3ish on Sunday to turn it back around and get this weight off! <BR> <BR> I don't know how I've gained weight. I've been following my diet, I've been moving a lil bit. Sure I haven't been to the gym, but that's just because I've been wo... Wed, 5 Jun 2013 16:39:33 EST where? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5369793 What's a good team, or something where I can post when I feel like I need motivation? I honestly know nothing about this site other then how to post blogs, track my food and stuff, and stuff i need to know. i just don't know which team would be best for motivation. please let me know. thanks. :) Mon, 27 May 2013 22:21:35 EST Good Afternoon! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5369548 Hey everyone. I hope your day has been wonderful. Mine has been a lazy day. I got more then 8 hours sleep, which totally drains me for the day (I work best with less then 8 hours of sleep a night) so I've just been on my computer and watching TV all day. For food I've had a morning star tomato and basil pizza veggie burger, rice, and morning star veggie chick'n nuggets, and a weight watchers ice cream bar. <BR> <BR> I've been trying to remember to use my Sensa with each meal. I remembered ha... Mon, 27 May 2013 17:41:39 EST YES!!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5368516 My goal is so much closer then it was just 3 weeks ago! I am so happy and motivated and I want to thank everyone who's been helping and supporting me throughout this journey and lifestyle change. <BR> <BR> May 5th, I started my journey at a whopping 217.8 pounds. After changing my eating habits, and exercise habits, it's paying off in an AMAZING way. <BR> <BR> Today, May 26th, just 3 short weeks later I'm down to 212.4. At work I'm down a pant size. At Disney we have very odd sizing so I wa...

And high in fiber!), black bean veggie burger from Light Life, and some carrots with ranch dressing. I'm about to have a cheese manocotti thingy after i get up to fix it, or my mom fixes it for me. <BR> <BR> I had to work (1245 to 9) and I currently don't have access to my money :'( so I actually brought my lunch to work, from home.

So in week 2, it wasn't the best week. I ate more then I should of, BUT it was that time. It wasn't the worst week ever though. I might not of gotten much done, but everyone has an off week every now and then. I still lost weight, and that's what's important right now. Right? I could of left off some of the sweets, and i could of ate less in general. <BR> <BR> Week 3 Preview: <BR> <BR> I plan on eating less, going to the gym AT LEAST twice (Tues and Weds) an...

So I said screw this and called in. <BR> <BR> Ended up going to walmart to get some groceries and nessesities. then went to denny's to eat. their veggie burger is really good! :D then we went to publix and finally came home after that. <BR> <... Fri, 17 May 2013 19:35:52 EST Good Day. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5358670 Okay so today's been pretty good. I've been cleaning a little bit. Haven't had much to eat, just 8 pizza rolls, some broccoli, and I think that's it. I've been trying not to do much, or eat much because some times, when I eat, if it's not what I want I just keep eating. <BR> <BR> Tomorrow I have to work, blahhh. I'm just bored today have nothing to really do today. =/ so yeah. Thu, 16 May 2013 14:11:14 EST Good Day. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5358669 Okay so today's been pretty good. I've been cleaning a little bit.

Thu, 16 May 2013 14:11:13 EST Gym!!!!!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5358046 Today I joined the gym that is offered by my employer. It's like 4.62 a week, but I have a feeling it'll be worth it!!!! When I signed up, I also got 5 free 55mins of personal training sessions. My first session is Tuesday at 3. :D <BR> <BR> These veggie burgers, if done right and cooked long enough, are SUPER good! I'm really enjoying this new lifestyle of vegetarian eating. Sure I'm getting kind bored with the foods we have in the house, BUT as soon as I can, I'm going to start buying diff... Wed, 15 May 2013 23:52:21 EST It's Working!!!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5357485 Okay so I've been following my healthy eating habits from week one and have done really good. I've cut out a lot of sweets. I'm eating weight watchers or organic ice cream when I do eat ice cream. And for the weight watchers ice cream bars instead of the "giant" ones, I've gone to the snack size ones. They're a lot smaller, but I don't care. <BR> <BR> I figure the smaller ones will be a little bit healthier. Maybe not by much, but every little bit counts! <BR> <BR> Today I also joined a gym... Wed, 15 May 2013 13:29:39 EST Easy. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5356897 At the beginning of the week I was worried I wasn't going to be able to do this because the 2nd week of a new menu I could never successfully get through the 2nd week of change. But this week, the 2nd week, is seeming really easy. <BR> <BR> I would like to have another week like last week where I lost almost 2 pounds. That's my goal each week. I mean I'll accept what ever I get (except weight gain!) but that's my goal each week. I would love to lose 20 pounds by July 22nd, my 21st birthday. ... Tue, 14 May 2013 23:49:33 EST Yum! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5356809 Okay so today for breakfast I had some left over mashed potatoes that I made last night. Then when I got to work, right before I clocked in I had a thing of chocolate donuts from Freshly's. Then I came home and just had a black bean veggie burger. A lil spicy, but super good!!!!! <BR> <BR> Tomorrow I have an interview for a full time position at work and I'm really excited. Half of me wants it, half of me doesn't. But I do look at it like this: It's more money. It's full time. And I can't st... Tue, 14 May 2013 22:22:54 EST Lunch?? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5356140 What do you take for lunch when you work when you don't really have anything to take? PLEASE HELP!!!! Tue, 14 May 2013 10:22:09 EST I'm Trying! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5355574 It doesn't matter what diet I try, week one is always good and I can stick with it no problem. But for some reason when it becomes week two I just have a hard time sticking with it and I want to break my diet. <BR> <BR> How ever, I'm really trying to stick with my diet this time because last week when I lost 1.8 pounds in ONE week made me feel really good and I think if I can have 3-6 months of loosing that much a week it'd be great and I'd be close to my goal. <BR> <BR> If I lost that much... Mon, 13 May 2013 20:11:48 EST Happy Mom's Day!!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5353855 Hey everyone. I just wanted to take a few moments to wish all the mom's out there a Happy Mothers Day. Whether you're a mom to be, new mom, or been a mom for years this day is for you. <BR> <BR> I hope you get to spend it with the people that matter, because these are the moments that matter! Happy Mothers Day. <BR> <BR> Katy Sun, 12 May 2013 09:31:24 EST Week 2 Preview http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5353182 So for this week's preview I don't have many hopes. I've been doing really good. I would like to see me work out at least once a week, and take my lunch when I have to work. <BR> <BR> I walk a lot when I'm at work, but when I'm home I don't do much of anything. I have a feeling it's going to be a really good week this week. I guess that's really it. Just improve on what I've been doing in week 1 and work out a little bit more. :) Sat, 11 May 2013 14:36:35 EST End of week 1 review. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5353165 I figured it'd be best to write a week review at the end of each week to review how the week was, and what I feel I could of done better, or differently. I'm also going to do a week preview of what I hope to accomplish over that week. So right now is the end of week 1 review! <BR> <BR> I only messed up once. I accidentally ate meat on Tuesday because I forgot that our Chili at work has meat in it and I ordered the Chili Cheese Fries for lunch. Other then that I haven't touched meat at all. <... Sat, 11 May 2013 14:09:34 EST So excited!!!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5352532 Okay, so I'm just a little bit excited, and SUPER proud of myself! <BR> <BR> I just started this new diet on Sunday, May 5th. It's only Friday, the 10th, and I've already lost over a pound!!! I haven't changed my exercise habits or anything, but I've been eating healthier. <BR> <BR> I started a vegetarian diet! I'm *trying* to keep it low carb, gluten free, low/no sugar, and organic. I know it sounds like I'm trying to starve myself, but that is NOT the case. <BR> <BR> I'm eating just arou...
