Sun, 3 Feb 2013 16:58:58 EST 1 Month Down-01/29/2013 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5231475 Well considering it has been 1 month since I started my lifestyle changes I can honestly say that I am pretty happy. All though my clothing still fits the way it did a month ago but I know, eventually this will change. i still think that I did amazing for my first month! <BR> <BR> Here are my stats for Month 1 <BR> <BR> Start Weight=226 <BR> 1 Month Weight=219.5 (TOTAL OF 6 POUNDS LOST) <BR> <BR> Start Measurements...

Considering I did not track for most of the week I find this great! <BR> <BR> This is my 1 month way in so I will be posting my stats a little later!!! I can't believe it has been 1 month. Wish I could of see a little more weight loss but I have a feeling my measurements will make up for it! <BR> <BR> Now to think about what to add to my lifestyle change, more food changes, exercise changes and maybe adding more things will have to s... Tue, 29 Jan 2013 09:53:03 EST Day Twenty-Five to Day Twenty-Eight (01/25/13-01/28/13) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5226763 Well definitely slacked on recording food this week, but did get some exercise in. So exausted and trying to kick these blues, because I know its affecting my weight. <BR> <BR> Well weigh in is tomorrow - 4th week hopefully with be great!! Mon, 28 Jan 2013 09:04:47 EST Day Twenty-Three & Day Twenty-Four (01/23/13-01/24/13) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5221334 So the 3 week blues has kicked in. I feel like I am giving up, but in my mind I know I cant afford to and truly don't want to. I have been feeling blah the last few days like my body is missing something (most likely sleep). Can't sleep through the night without getting up 20 times, I'm just exausted. <BR> <BR> Hoping that this passes and it's just the winter blues kicking in! <BR> <BR> Hoping the snow sticks around for this weekend so we can go have some fun in the snow - since it's been 2... Thu, 24 Jan 2013 09:24:46 EST Day Twenty-Two (01/22/2013) Week Three Down! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5218314 Ok so besides feeling bloated, gassy and fatigue; now I am extremely crabby too! <BR> <BR> According to the scale I gained .5 lbs which is probably from this yukkk feeling. <BR> <BR> Either that or water weight, since I started this new supplement to help boost my metabolism. <BR> <BR> This is usually the time I start to quit, because I ALWAYS gain on week three, but I am going to think positive :) At least it is not 5 pounds!! <BR> <BR> Although I am thinking positive I think it is time... Tue, 22 Jan 2013 09:44:12 EST Day Twenty & Twenty-One (01/20/2013-01/21/2013) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5217673 wow did I slack yesterday. So didn't track (hope that doesn't bite me in the ass tomorrow). Been a laid back weekend, which was well deserved and needed. Started a new supplement hoping it helps with the process. Week 2 is coming to a close and this is my hard time when I usually start giving up! Need some support :) <BR> <BR> TTY all tomorrow.

FYI if you have the opportunity to try McDonald's Chicken Wings, do it. Not only are they delicious but calories r...

Just tired from Tuesdays marathon (move @ work) So I took it a little easier than I usually would. <BR> <BR> One good thing I have to note. I usually have a White Chocolate Mocha Latte from Starbucks daily (not the small one either) I have cut down to one a week. :) <BR> <BR> Then today I was craving a donut and guess what I passed :) <BR> <BR> I am very proud of myself. Gotta get those po...
