My oldest wanted to spend the summer with there. I drove there and spent a couple of days there. When I came back I stepped on the scale to find that I had gained 7 lbs. I quickly decided I had enough and was going to kick it into over drive. While I was gone my Garcinia Cambogia arrived. I started taking it on Wednesday. It really does a good job as an appetite suppressant. I didn't over eat like I normally do. I ate 3 small meals that day. ... Fri, 28 Jun 2013 09:53:55 EST traveling blues http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5398971 My daughter wanted to spend the summer with her Granny and Papa, so, I have driven her to their house. Today is day number 4 of staying here ( I will be leaving tomorrow early in the morning) and I feel super heavy. My Mom is an old southern cook who usually cooks a lot of good food. I've tried to skip her meals but then I get a lecture about not eating. I'm scared to step on the scale when I get home. At least it will just be me and my 2 month old this summer and I'll be able to work out mor... Sun, 23 Jun 2013 09:45:04 EST Excited http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5394424 Yay! I hesitantly stepped on the scale this morning and was shocked to see that I was below 200lbs. I almost shrieked with joy but since it's so early and I have a serious headache I with held. I'm now at 199.6 lbs, not much below 200 but still below! I didn't manage to find Garcinia Cambogia yesterday so, I'm stuck seriously watching what I eat till I get the bottles I ordered (which should be early next week). Wish me luck to stay on track.... only 64lbs to go till I'm' at my goal weight! Wed, 19 Jun 2013 06:03:11 EST Garcinia Cambogia http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5393031 Alright so after a few week of entertaining family and friends my weight has climbed back to over 200lbs. With an extremely heavy heart and growling tummy, I began looking for a supplement that would curb my appetite. I'm an emotional eater. I eat when I'm happy, sad, depressed, you name the emotion and chances are I'll eat when I have that emotion! I ran across Garcinia Cambogia. It has some mixed reviews regarding weight-loss but overall every thing I've read has claimed it to be a good app... Tue, 18 Jun 2013 07:43:30 EST Not too bad http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5377551 Well, I faced my fear this morning, I stepped on the scale. To my surprise I only gain back a little less than 3 lbs over the weekend. So, I plan on adding in an extra workout somewhere in my schedule. Despite gaining the weight back I'm feeling a lot better now. I pushed my self this morning and did 20 minutes on my tread climber instead of quitting at 10. I'm thinking about getting back on and doing 20 more minutes later today. Fingers crossed I'll find the time for it. Tue, 4 Jun 2013 06:32:11 EST Weekend fumble... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5376424 Well, we had friends spend the weekend at the house so, watching what I ate was extremely hard! I'm terrified to get on the scale. I don't plan on stepping on my not so favorite friend till my weekly weigh in day (wednesday). I know I didn't drink as much water as I should have so, I'll have to force myself to drink more this week. And to top it off I just remembered my in-laws are visiting next week. I really hope I can do better watching what I eat when they're here. Right now I need to jus... Mon, 3 Jun 2013 08:26:48 EST Oh my... weightloss http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5373358 Being on this detox crap is tough! Yesterday I wanted to give up! Thank goodness my husband said today is the last day! I've honestly never done any type of detox and not sure how I'm supposed to feel. I'm hungry (not starving just hungry), tired (more than usual), and down 7 lbs. That's right I've lost 7 lbs. I know it's mainly water weight but it's hard to believe that I've lost that much when I've been drinking water like crazy! I drink so much water that I forget to log it. I'm happy I've... Fri, 31 May 2013 08:10:27 EST Bored and Hungry http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5371492 So, I've been avoiding the kitchen cause I'm hungry! This detox crap is for the birds! I went outside and started thinking about how to lose this extra baggage without feeling so darn hungry! Think about all the things I've read about in the past but never put to use. Then it hit me! I need to make short term goals! I immediately ran back inside and started working on my short term goals. I'm in need of losing 68lbs before I reach my goal weight. Everything I've read states that a lose of 2lb... Wed, 29 May 2013 12:41:06 EST Beginning is tough! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5370519 Here it is... I actually started over yesterday, 27 May 2013! What a day to start over, Memorial Day! What a bad decision! Everywhere I went I smelled BBQ! And it didn't help that instead of going off of the suggested meal plan I decided to start with this week long detox meal plan. It's supposed to help flush your body and promote weight loss. It was my husbands idea and it was something he acquired from a friend at work. My personal opinion is that this so called detox meal plan is the cabb... Tue, 28 May 2013 14:31:17 EST
