It kind of hovered between 189 and 199. It's not as good as I could have done, but still so happy to see the 180 area! I can't believe it. <BR> I'm taking a comp day today and my friend and I are going shopping for a dress for my daughters wedding. I'm really not looking forward to trying on clothes. I hope I find something that looks good. I wish I would have started dieting much earlier, but still 19 lbs. isn't bad. I guess I... Mon, 26 Sep 2011 08:49:33 EST Seventh Monday My scales say I'm up a pound this week. I've been so sick this last week and now Dale has it. I stopped taking my diet meds. so that I could take my anti-biotic. I was afraid of how they would interact. I looked it up on the internet and it advised against taking them together. I couldn't stay home from work, so I struggled through it. I'm better so now I'm starting back on them today. My head is full and I am still blowing my nose all the time. But no fever and chills. Thank the Lord! I didn... Mon, 19 Sep 2011 10:31:26 EST Sixth Monday Only one pound this week. But I'm feeling horrible. I have sinus infection. Started anti biotics. Taking NyQuil. It's only supposed to last a few hours, but it stay's with me until about noon. Two days of it now. I have to go to work. No choice. Too much drama if I miss. It's not worth that. <BR> <BR> Hope this week goes OK. Poor Katie has to be with boring people. She will go home Wed. <BR> <BR> Boy do I wish I could go back to bed!! Mon, 12 Sep 2011 07:35:51 EST Fifth Monday I'm down another 2 lbs. I've lost 14lbs. now. My gosh it's great to step on the scale and it isn't over 200 now. I'm beginning to feel good. I'm stressing over work and church stuff, but praying, praying. We have Buisness meeting Wed. night. Praying hard that nothing bad is coming up. Katie will be staying with us for a week. Grandma is going to visit her family out of state. <BR> <BR> I'm working on a "Prayer Journey" study for our Wed. night ladies group. We are going to create journals an... Mon, 5 Sep 2011 08:16:36 EST Fourth Monday I am 2 more lbs. down this Monday morning. I'm beginning to feel it in my clothes now. I'm so very excited. I know I won't be a size 10 or even a 14 for our daughters wedding, but I will be better than I am now. I've got until the end of Sept. before I go shopping for a "mother of Bride dress". I am not looking forward to that. But will do it anyway. It's my baby!!! Besides that, all of our kids and grandkids will be staying at the same hotel/pool with us. It will be the first time we will a... Mon, 29 Aug 2011 07:42:51 EST Third Monday I am beginning to feel so good. I have been eating right, and it hasn't been terribly hard. There are some things I need to work on. The scales showed 196 this morning. 3 more lbs. down. That is major awesome!! I go back to the Dr. Sept. 2nd for the "official" Dr. weigh in. I hope she is happy with what I've done so far. I only have two more months of meds. and then I'm on my own. <BR> <BR> Work is really hard and stressful this year. I'm hoping that it will get better soon. Church is also ... Mon, 22 Aug 2011 19:21:03 EST Second Monday I've been doing pretty good with my eating this last week. Tracking calories, eating OK. The scales said 199 this morning. It's been a very long time since I've seen it below 200. By everything thing that I've read it looks like it's coming off pretty fast, but boy it feels like a slow process. <BR> <BR> Today I will go to EW and help a new gal set up her lab. I was asked to transfer and turned them down. So this new gal doesn't know anything about the programs or how to get started. LH and... Mon, 15 Aug 2011 07:58:31 EST First weigh in Monday... again I was brave and got on the scales this morning. I've done so well this week on my eating. Not much walking though. When I got home from the Dr. my scales read 208. This morning it read 201. I don't think it's exact because I weighed in the afternoon last time. But I've decided to weigh every Monday morning and go from here. I had the munchies really bad last night and found a bag of shredded carrots. So I slowly munched on those. I need to make a grocerly list today and get my house in order.... Mon, 8 Aug 2011 09:45:43 EST Getting Excited The last few months I've been going through a series of tests. I have some symptoms that nobody can figure out what's going on. I've had a colonoscopy and blood work. My colesteral is a little high and they found diverticulias. Now that I know what it is my Dr. and I are working to make things better. There are alot of things that I can't eat. So keeping a list and not eating certain things is helping so much. I am on a 3 month diet pill. This is the second day and I'm feeling great. I'm onl... Fri, 5 Aug 2011 16:17:40 EST First Snow this year Today we've had our first snow of the year. It's so beautiful outside. It feels so fresh and new. I de-junked our house this weekend and bought the things I need to get serious. Today has been great. I've stayed on track and really not that hungry. Tonight will be the kicker. I have supper planned. It's after while watching TV that kills me every time. So I need to get busy with things and plan a snack and get going. My baby deserves me to be better than this for her special day. I can't wait... Mon, 10 Jan 2011 16:54:48 EST It is official It is official. My baby girl or 25 is getting married on Oct. 9 2011. 10 months to look better for her big day. I'm scared that I can't do it. But I'm going to try. I've got to get my head wrapped around what I need to do and do it. Starting....this morning.... continueing....this moment. Mon, 3 Jan 2011 21:27:50 EST 'Today was rough Today was really rough. The stress at my job seems over the top. I finally had to talk to my boss about a co-worker. The situation was addressed. I hope the stress level is lower now. It will depend on how I handle things and how my co-worker responds. She has a lot of drama in her life and brings it to work as well. It's very hard to stay possitive with 8 hours of non-stop. I can't get away from it. I'm locked most of the day around it. I so look forward to going home every day. I think abou... Thu, 30 Sep 2010 16:47:51 EST Excuses middle name. I haven't been to Spark People for several months. I've gained another 10 lbs. This summer I fell and hurt my arm and wrist. The Dr. said no more Curves for me right now. It's been four months. We've moved, job has changed, stress level is sky high. I feel horrible. My brother in law just had major heart surgery and isn't good. In 10 years I could be as bad. I just had my blood work done and it all is looking good though. That's encouraging. So I'm thinking that I've got to get serious. I nee... Wed, 29 Sep 2010 16:44:52 EST
