I absolutely love it! <BR> <BR> Tacos were a hit last night. I used lettuce for a shell instead of the regular soft shell the rest of the family had. I got a funny look from my husband but that tortilla just doesn't fit into my diet right now especially with how many calories it would cost me! <BR> <BR> Hubby knows I'm on a diet but I think he forgets a lot. He went to the store last night and even tho I told him I didn't want anything he came... Thu, 7 Nov 2013 12:12:39 EST Yay! My fitbit came today! Its so pretty pink! I thought about waiting and getting the force but it looked a little bulky to me and it didn't come in pink so I went with the flex. I'm super excited to get started! <BR> <BR> My hubby also bought me a new Coach purse yesterday so I am one happy mama! <BR> <BR> I didn't get to blog yesterday but it was a pretty okay day. School went fast as we only had two lessons. Then we cleaned the RV. Little man is earning money for chores now so he has a littl... Wed, 6 Nov 2013 12:56:54 EST Happy Monday! Day 7 <BR> <BR> Today is going so so so much better than yesterday. <BR> <BR> I got up earlier than usual and had some time to myself before my little man woke up. The neighbor has been gone for work so its been up to me to watch his dog. I was so happy this morning when I went over to take the dog out and there wasn't a mess to clean up. Its a very needy dog and if it gets mad it will tear into the trash or go pee on stuff. <BR> Thankfully the neighbor will be back today. He called and sa... Mon, 4 Nov 2013 14:37:30 EST Ick! Day 6. <BR> <BR> Woke up in a bad mood this morning after having a bad night. <BR> <BR> Hubby came home late and then stayed up finishing paperwork until 1:30 in the morning. He had to be up at 5 so he napped on the couch instead of coming to bed. He has a hard time waking up and I understand but it still made me grumpy. <BR> Of course Hubby had to work today, the one day he usually has off. <BR> I feel like I haven't gotten to see him all week and this next week is going to be all the sa... Sun, 3 Nov 2013 14:10:26 EST Day 5, Happy Happy Happy Five days since I started blogging. <BR> <BR> The kid and I got to sleep in since its Saturday. No homeschool so we are just hanging out. <BR> <BR> Went on a long walk with the doggie this morning once it warmed up a tiny bit (not much). <BR> <BR> Other than that I'm feeling kind of lazy today but I'm on track for my calories today and I've had 5 cups of water so far today. <BR> <BR> I also got my hubby's Christmas presents in today. I'm so excited I'm not sure I can wait to give them to ... Sat, 2 Nov 2013 12:56:31 EST November Goals My original goal for November was to get down to 259lbs. Well seeing as I'm down to 262 right now I am changing that goal. <BR> <BR> Weight Goal for November - 252lbs (loss of 10lbs) <BR> <BR> Drink 8+ cups of water a day (haven't been doing so good as this) <BR> <BR> Do a minimum of 30 minutes of exercise per day, except Sunday. <BR> <BR> No fast food. <BR> <BR> No soda. <BR> <BR> <BR> <BR> I ordered a fitbit flex so hopefully I will be able to track better and stay motivated! Fri, 1 Nov 2013 14:46:53 EST Day 4 Its Day 4 since I started blogging again. Seems to be helping keep me accountable again. <BR> <BR> I did my weigh in this morning and came in at 262lbs. I lost almost 3lbs this week. My ticker says I've down 17lbs or so. <BR> I'm feeling really good about my loss this week. <BR> <BR> Last nights dinner wasn't a big hit with my hubby. He said it was "alright." My 5yr old loved it believe it or not. <BR> Here is a picture of my hubby's plate. <BR> <img src=" Fri, 1 Nov 2013 12:13:22 EST Day 3 Started off good today and I feel good about how productive I have been but I've totally blown my diet out of the water today. I know by the time the day is over with I'll be at least 500 calories over my limit. <BR> However I have been pretty active today. Took the dog on a long walk this morning. Did homeschool with the kiddo, walked the dog around again. Cleaned the entire RV and cleaned up outside. After this I'm going to do 30mins or so of a workout DVD. <BR> <BR> I just got back from g... Thu, 31 Oct 2013 13:50:13 EST Day 2 I feel like it was a good day today. I woke up early this morning but I felt refreshed and ready to get going. <BR> Took the dog out for a walk first thing and then the little man and I worked on school. He finished early and got to have a lot of fun working on his art project. He got paint everywhere but he helped clean it up. <BR> After school I did chores and then took the dog out for another walk. <BR> <BR> I did pretty good on my diet today. I think I might go over my calories a littl... Wed, 30 Oct 2013 18:02:02 EST Day 1 Well its been nearly a year since I joined this site and of that year I wasted nearly 6 months not following my diet. <BR> <BR> I started in Dec. 2012 at 280lbs and today I'm at 265lbs. I've maintained all but 10lbs of my weight loss so I am not totally bummed but I know that if I had stuck with my program I'd be close to my final goal. <BR> <BR> I really am tired of being fat and unhealthy. It seems like everyday I'm thinking to myself..."well if I wasn't fat I could do that." I'm tired ... Tue, 29 Oct 2013 11:13:45 EST
