So I finally gave in today and opened my 8 year old Laptop so that I could wright a blog ...for some reason I can read and edit my blogs on my I-phone but it wont let me create one...also it has the add a photo link but when I click it nothing happens so I gave in and decided to open the computer and then remembered that my photos are on my phone so I still cant upload a photo unless I send it to myself in an email so that it on my computer. <BR> Why are there so many steps what am I doing ...

Tue, 30 Aug 2016 18:05:42 EST 57 I set my goal for 211.0 I got 211.2 close enough for me considering my endometriosis has been killing me all week and I have been constipated I am not going to complain. As of today I am on vacation for 10 days. I am not going to set myself up for failure and set a weight-loss goal instead I'm going to plan to maintain so the following week which is May 27th I plan to be at 209.0 now all I have to do is figure out how to make good choices while on vacation that has never been a strong point f... Fri, 13 May 2016 15:44:54 EST 54 I really need to start posting my blog and then editing my spelling every time I do that I end up deleting the entire blog before I post it and then it makes me feel rage because I don't have time to retype it so another really long blog about my weekend gone!😟 Tue, 10 May 2016 12:59:30 EST 50 Well I set my goal at 213.0 this week and never managed to get below 213.6 although I admit I do feel frustrated mainly because it's Mother's Day weekend but seriously why does that matter long story short I'm setting my goal for next Friday at 211 and hopefully whatever kept me from hitting 213.0 this week will make up for it plus some! Fri, 6 May 2016 15:12:09 EST 46 213.6😍 Mon, 2 May 2016 14:39:56 EST 45 I have been so busy I didn't have time to check in and say I am at 214.6 as of Friday! My goal for next Friday is 213.0! Sun, 1 May 2016 13:38:38 EST 42 I had typed out a really long blog with a lot of detail and then apparently hit a wrong button and it deleted so no blog for today! 😞 Thu, 28 Apr 2016 11:19:10 EST 36 Goal met 216.8 is my weigh in for today my goal was 217.0 so I'm very happy my goal for next week is going to be 215.0! Fri, 22 Apr 2016 15:12:58 EST 34 I work the graveyard last night so I had made a plan that when I woke up today if I wasn't at least at 218.0 i was going to go jog as one last ditch effort to hit the 218 because I thought that number might have been setting myself up mentally to fail since my last weigh-in was 219.4 on Friday long story short when I got home from work this morning I stepped on the scale I didn't really care for the number that I saw although I know I usually drop down quite a bit while I'm sleeping I wasn't ... Wed, 20 Apr 2016 14:38:22 EST 33 I had pizza Friday again and then Saturday I went to a baby shower a baby shower that I had planned so I was in charge of the food I made sure that everything there was something that wouldn't tempt me and wasn't bad for me for instance we had carrots and hummus and pita chips we had turkey slices and blue diamond crackers I believe they're called almond Thins and we had hard boiled egg String cheese and almonds anyways I had planned to log my calories there and then for some reason suddenly ... Tue, 19 Apr 2016 11:35:47 EST 29 My official weigh-in for today is 219.4 I really thought that I was going to have 219 today but I'm okay with it I did my best I contemplated taking a quick job I figured that might knock off the point for at least in water weight anyways but I'm just so mentally and physically exhausted and honestly yesterday it was just hard not to completely sabotage myself all together and I didn't so I'm proud of myself I'm setting a goal for next Friday of 217.0. Thank you for the Fruityful for being... Fri, 15 Apr 2016 15:27:53 EST Day 28 I am in some need of motivation today I woke up feeling sad.......... also I can feel my endometriosis pain it's tolerable at the moment but i feel like stuffing my face with carbs this whole week has been so busy that I have been planning to get my to do list done today and now here I am unmotivated I wish it was stuff that I could procrastinate but it's the middle of the month and I still have sales taxes to figure out for our home business I need to get are home business ready so that we c... Thu, 14 Apr 2016 11:21:12 EST Day 26 Today I woke up and weighed myself and I am so glad I didn't sabotage I weighed in at 219.8 that puts me exactly at a two pound loss per week weight my goal for Friday morning is 219.0 im super close and I'm hoping I can do it! Tue, 12 Apr 2016 14:44:39 EST Unplanned off track day Friday night I decided to start having pizza Fridays again which is fine because it gives me something to look forward to all week. I tracked it the calories fit in my tracker although the sodium did not the next morning when I got up for work I didn't feel good but I'm having some pretty bad allergies to spring when I got to work I drank water like I usually do but I don't usually get hungry until I get home this week I was hungry almost immediately probably the result of the unhealthy Pizza... Sun, 10 Apr 2016 21:47:20 EST I made it! My first goal is complete! I made it through 21 days I am officially on track! My current weight is 221.8 although I wanted it to be 221.0 today I'm remembering in past years if I didn't get a two pound loss the following week I got my two pounds plus whatever I was missing so I'm just going to cross my fingers because I know I ate right and exercised enough last week! I really haven't struggled with food or exercise most of my issues were with wanting the scale to do things my way 😜 Fri, 8 Apr 2016 21:04:34 EST I've almost made it! I hear it takes 21 days to make or break a habit today is day 21! Current weight 222.2 Goal weight 129.9 Thu, 7 Apr 2016 13:17:41 EST Steps I'm really torn right now I have 10000 steps and I want 20000 steps but I do not want to get off my butt and I feel zero motivation! Tue, 5 Apr 2016 20:17:40 EST Day 19 Does anyone know if it's possible to add pictures to this blog from Facebook? Current weight 222.8 Tue, 5 Apr 2016 16:14:35 EST Day 18 Im on day 18 I am so close to the 21-day mark that was the first goal I set for myself. I am starting to feel a little frustrated with the scale I only want to see a .3 loss everyday or a .6 loss every other day I don't need to see big number losses I just need to see the scale moving down every day in order to keep me motivated I know that's not always possible but that is what I would like today I decided to reward myself and I purchased a $300 bird backpack so that I can take my parrot wit... Mon, 4 Apr 2016 17:23:44 EST Two weeks under my belt! One more week and I'll have a habit! I weighed in today at 223 my goal for next week is 221 I have 13 weeks until I visit my grandbaby and my goal for that is 197! My work schedule the last 2 weeks has been horrible and will be even worse over the next two weeks I'm tracking my food and my job is physical but unfortunately I'm not getting many on purpose exercise steps hopefully in a few weeks things will calm down and I can change that! I took my eclectus parrot to the vet last week for his ... Fri, 1 Apr 2016 15:59:18 EST Day 13 is almost over! I am more than halfway to day 21. Twenty-one days is supposed to be a Habit it's definitely getting easier however I'm still struggling with sabotage During certain times of the day so far I've made it through all of them hopefully I can continue. I am down another .8 my current weight is 224.2! Wed, 30 Mar 2016 16:03:06 EST I made it to Day Eleven! So Friday when I woke up I had zero motivation to stay on track I kept telling myself you can't blow day 8 I ended up getting through the day okay A little over my calorie range but I did log all of it on Saturday again zero motivation to stay on track but when I got from home from work I went for a walk and that helped. On Sunday I woke up again with zero motivation to stay on track my husband and I drove to Wyoming to pick up our lotto tickets and decided on the way back to pick up a Carl's... Mon, 28 Mar 2016 14:35:02 EST I made it one week! Although I'm a little upset with myself this morning I'm not going to beat myself up about it, is what it is unfortunately when I got home from work this morning I decided to have a salty snack it wasn't a lot of calories although I didn't portion it or weigh it I know about what was in the packages and it was less than 300 calories but it was about 700 milligrams of sodium so my weigh in today is 226 that is up .8 from Wednesday if I sit and worry about that this will be the end of my streak... Fri, 25 Mar 2016 14:19:34 EST Day 7 All I have to do if make it through today and I've made it an entire week! Woo hoo! Thu, 24 Mar 2016 17:08:25 EST Day 6 I can't believe I've made it to day 6 I hurt so bad yesterday and all last night at work I'm still hurting now and I'm hoping the pain goes away soon but it's such a great feeling to know I've made it to day 6 Iand im down another pound 225.2! Wed, 23 Mar 2016 14:24:39 EST Day 5 Made it to day 5 so far so good although I wish I wasn't fighting the stupid pain too I've only been living with it for 2 years and I'm turning 40 this year I hear about all these women that have been struggling with it since their teens I guess I should just be grateful. If I can make it 3 more days I plan to set a ghoul for my trip to Iowa to see your grandbaby. It really doesn't take a whole lot to throw me off track for instance I made a plan today to get up and take my car in for service... Tue, 22 Mar 2016 11:17:19 EST Day 4 I did it I made it through the night at work and I also made it through the morning it's just after noon I only have to make it 8 hours before day four is a success! <em>9</em> Mon, 21 Mar 2016 14:11:28 EST Day 3 I'm on day 3 today I feel like I'm doing really good but unfortunately my endometriosis pain came back last night. Over the last six weeks I have only had 4 painful days which is not typical. I'm hoping this time is short and fast also. I'm trying to talk myself into just pushing through the pain like I wish I would have done for the last 2 years alough it's easy to say that when I'm not hurting but now that I am I feel like I have a mental disorder I'm constantly arguing with myself it's wei... Sun, 20 Mar 2016 18:55:17 EST 15 Weeks until I meet my grandchild for the first time! The reality that in 15 weeks a lot of photos will be taken that are never going to go away has set in I don't have time to get to my goal but I have 15 weeks to feel better it's too bad it's taken this long for me to get on track but I'm really hoping that it sticks this time! My starting weight is 228.8 Fri, 18 Mar 2016 16:22:15 EST Endometriosis I was doing so good maintaining at 180 I wasn't at my goal but I didn't feel horable. I was jogging most days and then March 2014 I started having a pain in my lower back that lasted for several days we were headed out of town so I finally took a pain pill and still didn't get any relief when we got back I bought new running shoes and the pain went away or so I thought. About 21-25 days later it came back and after 6 months of this happening I finally went to the gyno who checked me for every... Thu, 7 Jan 2016 21:57:01 EST 260. 165. 202. 235. 232. 215. 208. 174. 203. 230 These are my November weights starting 2006-now. I really want to be 130 next November! Thu, 19 Nov 2015 10:53:25 EST 9 year spark anniversary Yesterday was my spark anniversary. At one point i was 30 pounds from my I am 100.....I really hope at some point i can reach my goal. The good news is I'm still down 30 pounds from my highest weight in 2006! Thu, 19 Nov 2015 10:31:57 EST Day #1 Current 235.2 <BR> Goal 129.9 Wed, 4 Nov 2015 11:54:03 EST Facebook memories <img src=""> My husband just posted this photo on his facebook page (he's at work). <BR> 2 years ago he posted it and wrote "That's my baby" ....I think this may be a subtle hint that he would like me to get back on track. Wed, 4 Nov 2015 11:52:20 EST 233.4 <em>9</em> Wed, 14 Oct 2015 18:50:21 EST 236.0 I've lost 4 pounds in the last 9 days.... Tue, 13 Oct 2015 11:57:47 EST I took a few steps..... In the right direction today! <em>9</em> Mon, 12 Oct 2015 23:02:07 EST I can't seem to find motivation I wan't so badly to be on track but, I can't find anything that motivates me....I don't seem to care about all the typical reasons to get on track. A trip to Portland would motivate me but, I can't figure it out financially and the way my husbands vacations work makes it even harder. <BR> <BR> I know I need to do it to be healthy ect, ect, ect but, none of those things kept me from eating when I lose focus and nothing gets me out of bed to get in exercise.... <BR> <BR> I've lost the same 10... Mon, 12 Oct 2015 15:25:52 EST Does anyone else do this....... I wake up everyday with a plan.....I have all these things that I need / want to do and my mind really wants to do it but, when it come time I waste hours battling myself over it? <BR> <BR> Example: I was up before 6 am this morning....on my to-do-list was <BR> -Mow the front yard <BR> -Organize some business boxes <BR> -Start figuring out the sales tax <BR> and <BR> Figure out dinner. <BR> <BR> Instead I watched Quanico and then went back to sleep for 2.5 hours...I then laid around for 3 ...

My food is logged and I'm headed out for my 3 mile walk. My husband said if I make it through Day #1 he will download a new song on my I-pod! <em>224</em> for being easily rewarded! Mon, 9 Feb 2015 11:52:33 EST I have stopped the gain! Just by walking 3 miles a day I have stopped the gain but, losing weight is another story...I'm going to start walk / jogging again to see if that will help me get my food on track...there is only 18 weeks until summer, and I know I don't do good during the summer so it sure would be nice to get down to the low 180's where I wasn't miserable for the summer! Thu, 29 Jan 2015 12:28:52 EST Control..... I don't know about the rest of you but, when I start feeling overload I start procrastinating....even thought I know if I worked harder to accomplish things I would feel better...eventually it leads to feeling depressed and that's when I start hiding, eating, sleeping ect..... I've spent most of this week hiding from my brothers accident (I know my mom needs me) but, I don't feel like I can handle it! I was an only child until I was 8...I remember wanting siblings SO BAD, and now I just wish ... Tue, 20 Jan 2015 11:22:43 EST I got my internet updated! I finally got my internet updated to 20 Mbps so I can finally log my food without wanting to tear my hair out! So despite the fact that I woke up to stressful text telling me my brother had been hit by a car and was in surgery ....after I went to visit him I did my 3 mile walk tracked my food ... I'm hoping to stay on track. Tue, 13 Jan 2015 19:14:38 EST I gained 30 pounds this year mostly in the last 6 months......In march I started having pains that my doctor thinks is Endometriosis then around the end of April I started having Anxiety again....then the Summer hit and I never do good during the summer. Over the last 6 month I have gone from the 181.8 that I have been maintaining at for over a year or so back up to 211.8 .....I have created a ton of new bad habits that I need to break and worst of all I stopped jogging back to the basics...time to make small chan...
