REBEKAHROBSON's SparkPeople Blog REBEKAHROBSON's Blog on SparkPeople, home of free diet plans and a healthy living community measuring everyone asks me if i'm also measuring. for whatever reason, i really didnt want to. i think it might be because i never know exactly where to measure. i do the part of my waist where it bends, pretty much where it's smallest, and i try to do the hips where they're biggest, i had no clue where to measure my neck.... it's just so much easier just to step on some scales and then go about your day. <BR> but i measured just now, so we'll see if it really makes a difference in my life (skeptica... Tue, 17 Jul 2007 12:10:15 EST progress! i think it was last saturday that i panicked because i'd crept up to 174!! well i have been really trying hard to lose, and this morning i'm down to 168.4!! that's about 5.5 lbs!! i'm going to try to keep this momemtum going! Sun, 8 Jul 2007 13:34:32 EST a little overwhelmed i've been trying REALLY hard to drink my water and track my calories, even if i go a little over. <BR> but since i've been stuck in the same weight loop for several months, it seems like i'm never really getting anywhere. i get really excited when i see i've lost a pound. but i dont know if it's my metabolism or what, but if i slip up for a weekend, i can easily gain 3 pounds back. so it's pretty discouraging. <BR> i've lost a pound and half since yesterday morning. which is awesome. i was... Fri, 6 Jul 2007 15:44:22 EST New day! ok, the holiday is over and so are the excuses. my sister and i are doing a water drinking challenge. there are no prizes, just the pride of saying 'i drank 64 oz of water today!!'. so far i've got my first cup down, not too shabby! <BR> i can easily drink water if there's no mtn dew present. but yesterday, we had 3 2 liters, and that's all i drank. then i felt so guilty about, i dreamed about not being able to resist mtn dew lol. <BR> i've been getting a little strength training, but bare... Thu, 5 Jul 2007 11:08:39 EST New challenge i've just recently started trying to diet again, and it's really tough. i'm never 100% motivated. one good thing for me though is that today my sister joined spark people, which is really cool. but now i really have to be accountable because she'll know if i'm messing up! lol. <BR> so today i logged my food, which i really havent done. and just in lunch i pretty much had all my calories. that's what happens when you're not careful at taco bell. <BR> but i'm going to try harder for supper an...
