MAMAHAJI's SparkPeople Blog MAMAHAJI's Blog on SparkPeople, home of free diet plans and a healthy living community Good Bye - Hello <img src=""> <BR> <BR> <BR> There is a big push to exercise more. Timing is good, we are almost to Summer making it easier to get out of the house more. <BR> <BR> In April I crossed over to being in the 120's but have not stuck there. There has been this hover of a 3-4 pound range up and down. <BR> <BR> Few days ago I hit 128.6 and hoping to walk out one door, enter the other and then slam it behind me never visiting again. <B... Sun, 3 Jun 2012 09:56:20 EST Am I flying again? <img src=""> <BR> <BR> After what seems like months I've been grounded, I think I have lift off again. I have been good about what and how much I eat, with the usual one or two day splurges, (can't always eat at home) that never exceed 1300, most days I keep it under 1000 calories. <BR> <BR> I had a week of going to the gym more often and it showed no results and I was "Stuck" (blog entry). <BR> <BR> A couple of days ago, I ro... Sun, 22 Apr 2012 07:05:48 EST Stuck <img src=""> <BR> <BR> I reached 131.6 Feb 29th and have not seen that number again since then. <BR> Sort of hovering between 133- 134 so decided to hit the gym 3 day in a row trying to break this, with no luck :( Sat, 14 Apr 2012 06:57:48 EST Getting close ..... <img src=""> <BR> <BR> <BR> <BR> Have a spring time baby shower to attend, picking out an new outfit in a new size. Tue, 6 Mar 2012 18:10:09 EST Still fighting the tug o war <img src=""> <BR> <BR> Tug o war with food continues. Sat, 4 Feb 2012 09:10:02 EST Inching my way <img src=""> <BR> <BR> <BR> The scale is not showing whole pounds anymore but instead, tenths of a pound are what I hope for each morning. Thu, 26 Jan 2012 07:15:39 EST Looking back a year - a time when.... <img src=""> <BR> <BR> THIS <BR> <BR> can now look like <BR> <BR> THIS today. <BR> <BR> <img src=""> Sat, 21 Jan 2012 09:28:15 EST One foot in front of the other. <img src=""> <BR> <BR> As the weight comes off, each pound lost comes slower. <BR> <BR> No more leaving a pound behind at the gym, or a stray one at the super market produce area. <BR> Now it is more like a slow drip the last one seen a day ago and it might be sometime up the road before the next one happens. <BR> <BR> Wed, 18 Jan 2012 08:21:01 EST 2012 Time to Work it out <img src=""> <BR> <BR> Have my gym membership, youngest is heading back to college after a winter break. I might be seeing my work desk clear long enough to put in more time on the exercise end of things, instead of just the dieting. <BR> <BR> Sat, 7 Jan 2012 09:26:10 EST Christmas Get Togethers, the day after. <img src=""> <BR> <BR> <BR> As suspected, up two pound the day after. Sun, 25 Dec 2011 13:44:46 EST Fighting the season <img src=""> <BR> <BR> About to head into a dangerous time for weight losers, a double set of weekends that can have record breaking results in a bad way. <BR> <BR> <img src=""> <BR> <BR> S: 170 C: 142.5 G: 130 Sat, 24 Dec 2011 07:33:40 EST ReRuns, let's try to see if it is better the 2nd time. <img src=""> <BR> <BR> This time, daughter, Projectlosit has her father involved on this site. It has been practically 2 yrs that I've been away from the virtual online people I met here. Only one or two didn't delete me. <BR> <em>39</em> <BR> I figure if they (husband and daughter) met online friends they might see the attraction it has for me. I suppose it is not for everyone. I see it as being quite different when you are i... Sun, 18 Dec 2011 19:23:58 EST New Years Party the sequel <img src=""> <BR> <BR> Tonight is the night my husband's family decided on for a Christmas/New Years get together at his brother's home. They do this every year and my daughters enjoy getting together with cousins. <BR> <BR> I'm going in armed with calorie content in common foods served at these gatherings, as well as the knowledge of exactly how many calories are in an 8 oz glass of red wine. <BR> Sat, 2 Jan 2010 06:51:47 EST Happy New Year <img src=""> <BR> <BR> I think of my Dec 20th join date as an early start on next year, vs a late start on 2009 <BR> <BR> <em>30</em> Thu, 31 Dec 2009 18:50:09 EST Snowy day work out <img src=""> <BR> <BR> This could actually be considered a work out if I could take the cold temperatures. <BR> <BR> I've compared the benefits of a shoveling work out, to the wrinkle damage that occurs from skin exposure. I decided I'm staying inside. <BR> <BR> Tue, 29 Dec 2009 13:36:28 EST Stats stats stats <img src=""> <BR> <BR> Picked up a new scale. <BR> It is now spitting out all these numbers at me besides telling me to get off, you're too fat. lol <BR> <BR> <BR> Height ---- 5' 2" <BR> <BR> Body fat ----59.7 :( <BR> Body fat % - 35.8 % :( <BR> <BR> <BR> <img src=""> <BR> Body Water-46.8 % :) <BR> Bone Mass --- 5.4% ;) <BR> <BR> BMI 30.7 :( <BR> <... Mon, 28 Dec 2009 09:03:01 EST Christmas was just a temporary crash <img src=""> <BR> <BR> Who knew one night of not watching what I ate carefully could carry over for two days. <BR> <em>198</em> <BR> <BR> I should be straighten out and flying right by the end of this weekend and resume my decent. Sat, 26 Dec 2009 15:59:30 EST On dry land again Was in shark infested waters last night, but coming out of the water and back to correct eating habits again today. <BR> <BR> <BR> <img src=""> Fri, 25 Dec 2009 16:22:53 EST Day 4 I've gotten that sudden off the gate weightloss of 6lbs. <BR> <BR> <img src=""> <BR> <BR> Now comes jumping into the water with the sharks (this would be my relatives, who like sharks, go at eating at a frenzied pace) <BR> <BR> I plan on eating my 3rd meal of the day before jumping into these dieter's troubled waters in hopes it will keep me afloat.
