KILA1228's SparkPeople Blog KILA1228's Blog on SparkPeople, home of free diet plans and a healthy living community Old Posts Do you ever go back and read your old posts? I did today. It was an eye opener. I'm jealous of the old me who lost 100 pds seven years ago. I gained it back. Seven years ago I started my weight loss journey on Jan 4. Tomorrow I hope to start the same journey- again. On another note it's back to work after vacation. Raise your hand if you are going back and thinking Nooooooo! ?? Tue, 3 Jan 2017 05:59:06 EST Photos - A perspective of a skinny person I was eating lunch at work the other day listening to 2 co-workers talking. The one said I don't think I know the person you are talking me a photo. The other got on FB and showed photo. The person said oh a head shot....she must be fat. Everyone stopped and looked at the worker. The worker said all heavy people take head shots and never full body photos or even photos from the waist up. They hide and are ashamed. Then I realized I do this and when I did lost a bunch of weight I... Thu, 22 Dec 2016 06:56:10 EST Working out! Soooo....the last couple of Fridays have been busy. Friday is a workout day. I get home and before I know it the time has flown by and its late. For the last two Friday's I have been working out at 10 pm! Before I would have been - I'll workout out on Saturday and not do it. Woohoo to me for staying motivated and working out. Sun, 1 Nov 2015 10:53:17 EST Comments, looks, and attitudes... Warning: A rant is coming on!! Have you loss a bunch of weight and got rude comments about it? I did. How much did you lose? WOW, that much and then you get the look. You know, the one, where they look you up and down. I love this comment I got from my MIL..."Wow, you look good but now you look sick" What? I look good but sick? People can be mean and judgmental. I get to the point where I find myself fibbing about exactly how much weight I loss. I find that people are less supportiv... Thu, 9 Feb 2012 19:13:23 EST A question for the runners out there... I've been to many websites and many sparkpages over the past few weeks and seen many "before" and "after" photos. I've come to a conclusion that I want honest answers/opinions about. Here it is... <BR> <BR> I've notice that people who lost weight by exercising by elliptical gliders, bikes, stair masters, etc. (no running) look good. <BR> <BR> Then you see the photos of people who use running as their main exercise. Now they look GREAT. It seems they managed to shed those "fat" rolls bet... Wed, 17 Aug 2011 16:13:22 EST It's been a while. I've been away. My husband got back from a deployment and I totally lost it. I stopped everything. My elliptical glider broke and it took a month to get it fixed. So, while it was broken I took it as an excuse to screw off. I ate crappy. I weighed 170 on Christmas. 100 pounds gone! Then I screwed off. I gained 20 pounds back and I feel it. I feel the fat rolls, the out of breath feeling from not exercising daily, I feel sleepy. I got tired of counting calories. I got tired (even a... Mon, 9 May 2011 07:58:35 EST Friday Well, I have to admit, I haven't been very motivated lately. I've been trying to lose weight since January and lost a ton. Now, that it's November, I can feel myself getting less motivated. I'm still working out 4 days a week but, boy, do I have to push myself. #sigh# I'm hoping this is a phase and I'll get myself out of the "self-composed slump" soon. Fri, 5 Nov 2010 09:11:54 EST Tuesday It's been a while since I posted a blog. I'm currently 11 pounds away from losing 100 pounds! Wow, I cannot wait until I hit that mark! I'm so proud that I have accomplished this weight loss. I feel so much better about myself. I'm starting to like me again. For so long I've been hard and disappointed in myself. I couldn't believe I allowed myself to get so heavy. Now, with a weight loss, my feelings are changing! I had some really HARD days and struggles the last year but it's worth... Tue, 26 Oct 2010 09:55:28 EST Tuesday Well, my speech class was cancelled today. I'm not complaining. It gives me a chance to catch up in Biology. On another note, I've been feeling really blah lately. I haven't been eating good and I've been putting off study and it's effecting my grades. Ughhh...whatever this mood is that has overcome me needs to GO AWAY! Tue, 12 Oct 2010 08:38:56 EST Weigh In I lost 2.8 pounds this week. I'm kinda surprised because I ate alot. Oh, well! Now, I'm 16 pounds away from losing 100 pounds!! I started to lose weight on January of this year, so hopefully, by January 2011, I'll hit that 100 pound mark! On another note, I work out on the elliptical glider, it's basically my only work out. So my mother-in-law up and buys one because she seen how well I did/do on mine. She worked out on in for 2 minutes and could do no more. She called and said she's r... Sun, 10 Oct 2010 16:28:33 EST Monday I'm so cold!!! Burrrr!! I just put up my Halloween decorations. Translation-Fall has officially arrived for me. Thanksgiving is around the corner. I weighed in on Sunday and lost 1.6 pounds! WooHoo to me! Mon, 4 Oct 2010 12:50:13 EST Thursday I have the whole day to myself. My goal today--get a good work-out this morning, a load of laundry, and some much needed TV time (I got a bunch of stuff on TIVO to watch)! Thu, 30 Sep 2010 06:23:58 EST weigh in I lost 1 pound. I, honestly admit, this week was crappy. I ate crappy and I exercised crappy. I did not give it my all this past week. All in all, a pound is a pound, so WOO HOO!!! Sun, 26 Sep 2010 15:35:11 EST baggy clothes I was running late yesterday morning. As I was getting dressed I grabbed the first pair of pants my hands landed on. I put them on and they were SO BAGGY. The pants were real loose around my hips. I didn't want to pull them up all day so I changed. Okay, I think it's time I go through the closet and get rid of baggy clothes. It's weird but I feel it's going to be hard letting go of those clothes. I was in size 22's for so long that getting rid of them is like closing a chapter in my life... Wed, 22 Sep 2010 07:21:27 EST Monday I woke up this morning with a sore throat. Why! I hardly ever get sick, but this year alone, this would make the 4th sore throat I've had. It's driving me nuts! Mon, 20 Sep 2010 11:06:53 EST Cupcakes Today is my son's birthday. So, I got him a cupcake cake. I plan on having one cupcake and no more. I figured that cupcakes were a good choice. It keeps the kids and I from eating to moch sugar. A cupcake is a cupcake but the size of piece of cake can vary. Anywho, Happy Friday everyone! Fri, 17 Sep 2010 06:42:34 EST Dinner I had butternut squash soup for dinner tonight!! Yummy!!!! Wed, 15 Sep 2010 20:19:21 EST Monday Okay, I woke up this morning and the news anchor stated the it was September 13th. What? Where did the last 13 days go?!? I forgot to take down my tape measurements at the beginning of the month and I've been meaning to get it done. Now, it's the 13th already. I need to measure myself and look out the window and wonder where did the time go! Halloween, Thanksgiving, CHRISTMAS! Mon, 13 Sep 2010 07:34:46 EST My workout. I always work out on Fridays. Today I am not in the mood. I'm complaining, I realize, but some days are differently better than others. I WILL work out but I'll be counting every minute until I'm done!! <em>246</em> It's so worth it! Fri, 10 Sep 2010 07:35:23 EST Thursday Night I'm tired and grumpy. I'm going to bed!

Sun, 5 Sep 2010 20:37:30 EST Applebee's I went to Applebee's with the determination to eat a low-fat dinner. It went out the window when I saw the new item on the menu. Ravioli. I love ravioli. #sigh# Tomorrow is weigh in. Note to Applebee's before a weigh in... Sat, 4 Sep 2010 19:27:45 EST The Weekend Labor Day weekend. A signal that summer is coming to an end.

My son got Silly Putty on a new comforter I bought. I put rubbing alcohol on the Silly Putty; the rubbing alcohol worked like a charm and the Silly Putty came right off! It made me so happy!

Sun, 29 Aug 2010 12:05:05 EST Saturday I'm feeling a little uneasy this morning. I woke up feeling overwhelmed. I got the house to clean, homework, watching what I eat, grocery shopping, going to the park, I need to pay some bills, buy my husband some supplements from GNC and ship it to him overseas, change my son's sheets (he's 2 and had an accident), return a book to the library, get gas for the truck, and a few more things. Lots to do on a Saturday. Sat, 28 Aug 2010 09:30:02 EST Friday, Friday, Friday Enjoy the weekend everyone!! There's not that many weekends left this summer, so get out and enjoy! Fri, 27 Aug 2010 06:42:52 EST Thursday I woke up and had a bowl of cereal. I took my vitamins. I grabbed a couple of bottles of water to get me through the day at school. I brought a mid morning snack with me. I ready for the day! Thu, 26 Aug 2010 08:28:13 EST School I'm stressing and the problem is Spanish class. When I start to stress I want to eat!! This class is my NEMESIS!! I think I'm an intelligent person. I do well in all my other classes but this class. It's only the second week in and I'm lost. *sigh* What to do?? Try not to eat is one thing!! I'm stressing out!!! Wed, 25 Aug 2010 19:10:11 EST Tuesday I'm so tired! I slept crappy last night. I'm off to bed!! Good Night! Tue, 24 Aug 2010 21:12:15 EST Working out. I worked out this morning and somewhere along the line I did something to my back. It's very tight and achy feeling. I'm getting ready to lay down and take it easy. Tomorrows another work out (maybe)!! Have a good night everyone. Mon, 23 Aug 2010 20:52:07 EST weekly weigh in I weighed in at 200.2 pounds. Up 2 ounces from last week. It's all good. First of all it was that TOM and I ate and ate. I had the munches all week. LOL!! Sun, 22 Aug 2010 15:01:51 EST My weekend. Not sure what I'm doing this weekend. Probably going to try and enjoy it. There isn't that many weekends left in the summer. It's amazing how time flies!! Good night! Fri, 20 Aug 2010 21:07:59 EST Thursday I'm getting ready to go to my classes this morning. I woke up this morning feeling hungry! I ate a big bowl of corn flakes with sliced bananas. I'm trying almond milk this week and I like it. Haven't tried soy milk but I will. I'm trying to find healthier milk and I'm looking around! Have a great day everyone!

Tue, 17 Aug 2010 21:50:28 EST Feeling...ummmm I'm feeling a little grumpy today. It's the TOM and my throat is scratchy. It's going to be a long week. Mon, 16 Aug 2010 19:30:11 EST I reached a GOAL. My original goal was 200 pounds!!! Today was the magic day!!!! 200.0 on the DOT!!! <BR> <img src=""> <BR> I changed my goal for 170 pounds. The bottom line is I want to be healthy and out of the "obese" category. 174 is the point were I go into the "overweight" category. I'm so happy!

It's suppose to be 100 tomorrow with a heat index of 112. I live in KENTUCKY. If I wanted this kind of weather, I would have hauled myself to Arizona or Nevada. *sigh* It's hard to motivate yourself, when even through the A/C is, on it's hot inside!! Who doesn't love August?!? Come December I'll be a complaining about the cold!! <em>334</em> Thu, 12 Aug 2010 06:44:51 EST This Morning. I woke up this morning with two little feet in my face. My son got into bed with me again. It's becoming a habit and I need to break that habit. He's so sneaky when he gets into bed I don't wake up and don't know he's there until morning. I got my daughter dressed and ready for school. She doesn't want to go. It's her 6th full day. She goes to school until next May. I laughed and told her, "don't complain, you have MANY days left to do that." It's been really HOT and that's been affe... Wed, 11 Aug 2010 06:42:20 EST School I went and picked my books up from school today. I go back next Monday and I'm not looking forward to it. I have four classes. Two are fine but the other two, I am not looking forward to them. Spanish and Speech. I struggled last semester in Spanish 1, now it's off to Spanish 2, and I'm hoping this fall flies by and I get out of the class soon. As for Speech, OMG, is all I well say about that. Tue, 10 Aug 2010 19:28:17 EST Monday I ate pizza for dinner tonight. I had one piece and that's all it took. I had one then another and another...boy it was good but I'm gonna be doing extra workouts this week. Oh, well, it was good! =) Mon, 9 Aug 2010 21:06:29 EST 70 pounds gone! I weighed in today at 201.2. The first time I weighed myself (for sparkpeople) Jan. 4th of this year I weighed 271. 70 pounds gone!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! <em>236</em> Sun, 8 Aug 2010 13:17:33 EST Saturday I'm enjoying a quiet Saturday night with my family!!

Tue, 3 Aug 2010 22:31:19 EST Monday I went shopping this morning and bought a new dress. I love it. It's been a while since I've bought a new dress. I never wanted to wear dresses when I was heavier. Now, I'm looking forward to when I have a chance to wear it! Mon, 2 Aug 2010 16:27:49 EST
