Side note the fact that I am being sexually harassed here instead of my full-time job is strange because there is a pretty even amount of men and women so is strange. Anyway i have been there two years and about as long as I have been there the guy lets call him Billy, had been bothering me. Though it was in the range of strange and annoying I ignored it one because he didn't touch me and two it wasn't very often and ... Sat, 19 Nov 2011 02:44:49 EST Madame is Back, http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4589400 I am happy to say that my dog has returned. Not without help. Apparently when she got off the leash she ran away. A guy was getting home and saw her and thought she was lost and cold so he took her I guess that makes since because it was cold and wet outside. He was looking for her owner he was going to take her to the shelter but didn't get around to it because of the strange hours. They didn't want a reward and I got my dog back I have not been able to find her dog tags so I will get new o... Thu, 17 Nov 2011 22:50:22 EST SOMEONE STOLE MY DOG!!!!!!!!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4587836 Saying someone stole my dog may seem a bit presumptuous but not with my dog. My beautiful madame. First let me tell you why I know that she was stole (or that someone has her) I have had her and her since she was a puppy in 1999 13 years come next August 12. i also owned her mother. i trained her without the help of trainers ( i used the internet of course). I have had her for ten years and for most of that time been her sole owner and care giver. Leash laws are really enforced here in my ar... Wed, 16 Nov 2011 22:12:09 EST Something is Terribly Wrong. The conclusion http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4568813 First off let me say thank you for everyone who gave me advice on this very serious situation(to me). i really appreciate the advice. <BR> This diet and exercise thing is VERY tricky. Here was my thinking eat 2000 calories to maintain and cut no less than 1200 a day to lose. Even the gym dietitian and spark said it was ok to eat 1500 calories. The meals at Jenny Craig ( I am almost certain) are 1500 calories if not less. So you get the point I thought eating 1500 calories was doing good. Wha... Fri, 4 Nov 2011 20:11:25 EST Something is Terribly Wrong. (may contain tmi.) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4545701 I have been working out and dieting, I have lost lots of weight dropped 4 or 5 dress/pants sizes and shirt sizes.I have not missed working out in like months. So you ask what is terribly wrong. I have been kind of losing my hair. My body hair has always been sparse like I guess most dark skinned people are I never had to shave to wear shorts. But other places that normally have hair don't anymore. My underarms and lower(hope you get the picture) the hair in those places is really thin nearly ... Thu, 20 Oct 2011 22:57:06 EST Motivation http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4474859 Before <BR> I used to listen to music as I worked out( when I went <em>20</em> )I knew the songs and music is ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS playing in my house <em>102</em> it got very boring. I was sure the best way to keep motivated was reward myself but I wasn't losing weight so buying clothes didn't work and obviously food wasn't a good way to reward myself) an trying new workouts got boring just as fast, I was at a loss <BR> <BR> Now <BR> I recalled an old magazine article I read once in the ... Fri, 9 Sep 2011 03:45:35 EST I am back with the spark http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4398686 My last blog was in March I was moving and had a lot going on.

Mon, 14 Mar 2011 01:07:13 EST I've Gone Banana's http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4031598 Strangest thing for the last few days excluding today and yesterday. I have been eating nothing but banana's The last few days I have not ate much of nothing. I have still been doing my healthy cooking thing planning out my meals and what not but when push comes to shove I always grab a banana and then that will be all I want like Friday I had four Banana's and maybe ten grapes. That's it, when I crave nothing else I feel sad cause I know is not healthy to be eating so few calories. I don't... Sun, 20 Feb 2011 02:25:00 EST Valentines Day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4024015 Hey how is everyone. I had a wonderful valentines weekend we only had the weekend so Friday, Saturday, and Sunday we stayed in the Adolphus in downtown and just went hung out.

Wed, 16 Feb 2011 22:58:33 EST Loss of appetite http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4005916 For the last few days I have not had much of an appetite. I have been trying to do really good with working out. I have even been planning my meals. I had some challenge on SP that said plan your meals for the whole week. I did that. I got up early and cooked and packed my lunch. I am gone from my house all day so take lunch and dinner with me. The last few days I planned everything out and took lunch and dinner with me. I left my Tupperware <em>28</em> it makes me angry. Is two days since ... Thu, 10 Feb 2011 06:14:29 EST Feeling Great http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3998156 I am free from my house after like a week trapped in. I am very happy even though the Steelers lost. I went to the Super Bowl. I am so glad the snow stopped, and it was not as cold as I thought. Maybe is me but I am sure it had alot to do with the Pissed off fans around me. Who screamed in anger the whole game. I can't help but think I would have enjoyed it more from my house where I could have changed the channel during half time and saw the commercials. The things we do for our friends. I d... Mon, 7 Feb 2011 13:33:30 EST Tuesday sucked, Wednesday Sucked, Thursday and Friday not looking better http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3986090 Wow I can hardly believe that I am going to be stuck in the house Thursday and Friday just like Wednesday and Tuesday. Is kind of like a mini vacation but you don't get paid or vacation and you don't get paid for vacation and oddly enough bills don't take a vacation. Having the first week of February off is irritating. Not only that everything is closed and I am low on food. This week I was planning on shopping. All I have in my fridge is Kale and side veggies like onions, bell peppers, All k... Thu, 3 Feb 2011 06:47:43 EST Snow in the South http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3981862 Today in Texas it snowed. It was just a little but in the south people can't handle the snow people couldn't drive, and they put sand everywhere. I hate that, why put sand all sand is, is dirt, dirt and water equals mud mud equals big mess every place when it melts. <BR> I was stranded on the bus for 5hrs today 5 whole hours on my way to a big mandatory training at work far away from my house I got up at 5am, wait not got up I was up since yesterday didn't sleep. Anyway I left the house at 5... Tue, 1 Feb 2011 20:07:00 EST Back Home http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3975987 Is good to be home, I missed my bed and my stuff even though the hotel was nice. I am having a hard time getting focused. After the news from the doctor I had Thursday and Friday off I tried not to be sad. <BR> I moved to stage two of my diet. It seems like awhile but is been really two weeks since I refreshed on 1-18-2011. You know I keep thinking how happy I am to never gain back any of the weight I lose and to always lose if I stick at it long enough. <BR> There is nothing really like bei... Mon, 31 Jan 2011 02:14:35 EST Going Out Of Town http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3971000 This person that I know used out be my friend has invited me out of town for church. I don't even want to go I feel with all that is going on I should be at home. My fiance isn't going he is sitting at home he disagrees with church. I don't feel welcome, He doesn't either he says they don't want non black people in the church, I hate to agree but my mexican friend married a black guy who has been in the church all his life and at the church events he goes off and talks and she sits with me an... Sat, 29 Jan 2011 08:20:14 EST I am preoccupied http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3967683 I had so much on my mind an was so upset today that I did not even eat anything I didn't even realize it. I got some unpleasant news at the doctor this morning. I could not even focus on my school work. I sat around watching stand up comedy and reading until I felt somewhat better, Now I am doing homework I must admit that when I am upset nothing like math and science to make me feel better. Nothing like solving complicated formulas to help me feel focused. Though today I must admit that I f... Thu, 27 Jan 2011 23:22:30 EST Quick blog I weighed myself http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3963340 I weighed myself, the funny thing is that I haven't gained or unfortunately lost in weight in a long time. I don't know how I feel about that. I am taking my sparkpeople healthy eating challenge more seriously. Is wonderful I have to go to work now Wed, 26 Jan 2011 15:42:37 EST So I Have Good New, and New motivation http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3958431 Today I reached my goal for the breast cancer 3-day. The goal was 2,300 I made my goal I have been trying to raise the money for about two years. The last few years I have been volunteering or working as a crew member. As rewarding as it was I am very happy to be a walker. It is new motivation for me to get healthier I know they have safe guards for people who can't finish or who need to go rest or what not, But I want to finish and walk the entire time. My Godmother and two of my aunts had b... Tue, 25 Jan 2011 05:06:46 EST Resisted Temptation. 2nd week of fast break http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3954866 Ok, I have been a vegetarian for about ummm, since I was in the 6th grade. I am 24 now. Anyways. I have been a vegetarian for however long that is. I am just now trying to attempt being a vegan. Though I have stopped drinking milk and most times avoid cheese and don't eat eggs. But today, I went to subway. Usually i have the veggie max, which is like the veggie delight but with a veggie patty, on herb & cheddar bread, with two cookies. But today I got the veggie delight (just veggies) on whea... Mon, 24 Jan 2011 02:14:49 EST Stayed with in My calories Yes. Failed in search for deeper meaning. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3951867 You know those time when stuff happens to you over and over. Then you come to the realization that is maybe you. What do you do then. I have been kind of looking for deeper meaning in things looking in different places for God if he exist. But is seems to be some secret club that I am not welcome in. I have a friend she is apostolic, I have been attending church with her for a month. But I am don't feel welcome if that makes since. Their could be several reasons for that. One the church is ju... Sun, 23 Jan 2011 03:14:30 EST My New Webcam http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3948659 I just got a webcame for my desktop. I thought hey lets play with the webcam Fri, 21 Jan 2011 21:18:14 EST I feel like a failure today http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3948220 Okay, I don't know what I was thinking today, but I had doughnuts for breakfast. Not only do I not know if they were vegan, I know they were 360 calories a piece. Not only that my vegetarian friend Milagro who was at my house using the internet, saw me come back with dougnuts and was cool. Then she made pig in the blanket using tofu and Pillsbury crescent bread, I had 3 of those with 2, 360 calorie doughnuts. You would think that after that smorgasbord of unhealthy fattening things for breakf... Fri, 21 Jan 2011 17:34:54 EST I am Baffaled by the popcorn http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3939601 I love popcorn I could really eat popcorn everyday. In fact I went for 8 months eating only popcorn for every meal. Of course you know I got sick. As much as I want to lose weight I am not sure i could not eat popcorn. So here is my issue I would love your replies. how do you measure popcorn calories. cause it really confusing like how much is a normal sized bag of popcorn. <BR> Also what up with all these people on here trying to lose weight to feel beautiful then saying they big and beauti... Wed, 19 Jan 2011 03:49:52 EST It Only Works If You Do It http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3939351 Today I recorded EVERYTHING I ate on the site. Is so cool, I went over my fat but I stayed with the other things. I usually didn't record everything. Is usually like "I am not going to record this ice cream cause it don't count" I had a whole list of reasons why food didn't count. Obviously I didn't lose any weight. Now I see it like this. I record everything and it all counts. So i will eat and always remember is being recorded being mindful of that instead of recording somethings and findin... Tue, 18 Jan 2011 23:59:26 EST So Let's Be Honest about motivation http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3937927 Okay everyone. I have been wanting to lose weight for a long time but not really working towards it, yo-u know those people who always talking about what they want but not really trying that was me.

I live in Texas my mothers family lives in Illinois I only go and see them once or twice a year. Last Christmas I went and my cousin was bigger than me. Then this year exactly one year...

I reset my goals because i lost way i just didn't track my food online. I actually wrote it down though. is Funny. I don't like tracking it online and searching for the food OMG. I hate to do that.

I won't try to hold myself to logging in my food each day but i will write down the food a... Tue, 18 Jan 2011 01:48:12 EST
