How funny and crazy. The only bad part is all my children and grand children live very far away. 3 children and 8 grandchildren live in Idaho and 1 child and 2 grandchildren live in Mississippi. <BR> As far as my new healthy lifestyle I am proud to say that all is working out great. Fri, 28 Oct 2011 13:27:26 EST one day at a time http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4553465 Well today went very well for me, I know its only day one but for me this is a great accomplishment. I exercised and stayed within my calories. It's funny because I feel Like I ate more than usual...LOL <BR> My problem is I have a bad habit of starving myself or only eating once a day which is what has usually sabotaged Me. <BR> Goodnight all Wed, 26 Oct 2011 00:03:18 EST SCALE IS CRAZY http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4553013 OKAY SO KINDA FREAKED OUT AND HAPPY AT THE SAME TIME. YESTERDAY WHEN I WEIGHED IN I WEIGHED 220, THIS MORNING I WEIGHED MYSELF BECAUSE I NO LONGER FELT AS BLOATED. AND TO MY SURPRISE TH SCALE SAID 210. I MEAN SERIOUSLY I HAD NO IDEA SOMEONE COULD HAVE 10 LBS OF BLOAT. MY HUSBAND EVEN SAYS HE CAN SEE THE DIFFERENCE. SO I AM GOING TO WEIGH MYSELF AGAIN IN THE MORNING JUST TO MAKE SURE AND THEN TRACK IT IN MY TRACKER. SO IS THIS WEIRD OR WHAT. OR IS IT JUST ME? Tue, 25 Oct 2011 18:18:28 EST so far so good for today http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4552702 This morning my husband said my goal was to find some recipes and take care of me. That was a great way to start the day. <BR> So I have been tracking all that goes in my mouth today and I forgot that when you track you are always more careful of what you eat. <BR> I found my exercise dvd's and dusted them off. now all I need to do is actually use them. Tue, 25 Oct 2011 14:36:30 EST Here I go again http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4551415 <em>249</em> Okay well here I go again is right. I tried to start the spark again in June and as you can tell I haven't done one darn thing with it and as a result I have went from 190 to 220 in just a few months. No workouts no food diary and well now I am more depressed than ever and when I'm depressed well I am just not me. I am usually a very happy go lucky person and makes everyone around me happy I have a contagious personality. when I am happy so is everyone else and visaversa. soooo... Mon, 24 Oct 2011 19:44:49 EST
