I just ate when I'm hungry and ate until I was satisfield. I had a couple binges. I've also been doing a lot of errands to keep busy. Now I need to take a progress pic Fri, 4 Jul 2014 13:48:26 EST binge eating. i need advice http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5724682 I'm trying to eat healthy. I end up being hungry all the time. I'm drinking tons of water and walk. Then I go on a binge. I really don't know what's wrong with me. Maybe I'm concentrating on it too hard. I guess I can eat junk just not as much. That might be my problem... Tue, 24 Jun 2014 08:23:59 EST The Monster Burger Attacks! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5722445 Didn't realize how monterius it'd be. I couldn't eat it all. I logged it. Its over 1000 cals. Tomorrow I'm making more lifestyle changes. I've got to star walking and stuff again. I've noticed when I miss a day I lose motivation. I'm not going to weigh or measure myself this week. I want to make sure I keep with a healthy routine for 2 straight weeks. That's my goal. Fri, 20 Jun 2014 22:58:26 EST in a rut http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5721641 I have to slow down on the smoothies. They are causing canker sores really bad.I've also been slacking. I have walked the last 2 days,but not as much as I'd like. The heat is rolling in and storms are predicted for all week. So I need to find things to do in the house. I've got this! Thu, 19 Jun 2014 21:17:44 EST i give up http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5714788 I give up! I'm doing everything I'm supposed to. Water eat healthy and exercise. I gained all the weight back. I want to lose weight so bad, but I guess I have to deal with it. My throat hurts and I've gotta go to the dentist today. That's another thing. I try to get healthy, and every time I get sick. I came be lazy and eat junk and not get sick. I guess its all a sign that its just not going to happen. Tue, 10 Jun 2014 08:43:43 EST how fast can you gain muscle? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5713281 I weighed myself yesterday. The scale said 293. Today I weigh myself and it said 296. Is it possible to gain muscle that fast? I know I shouldnt weigh daily. I know I'm sore as a mofo tho. Tried to walk a mile yesterday, but my mum wanted me to g out with her. I only had 2 mixed drinks then I was done. I did 5 minutes on this one machine I've got. I know I had to burn calories on that thing. I felt it.

I've been eating more fruits and veggies. I think smoothies are helping me. Sad thing is lost our food stamp card. Now we have to wait for a new one. This means I'll run out of stuff for smoothies. Regular milk taste gross with them. I was using vanilla almond milk. Everyday I've Been doing some kind of activity everyday. Yesterday I walked around a carnival for 4 hours.

I actually felt satisfied after eating/drinking that. I think I'll try 3 smoothies a day. I'll try using as a snack. I walked a mile today. I feel a bit accomplished today. Oh! I almost forgot. Next month I'll be getting help from TANF and volunteering. I have to do 20 hours a week and fill out 5 job applications a week. Tue, 3 Jun 2014 22:13:52 EST smoothies http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5709150 Has anyone been on a smoothie diet? Is there any easy tastey recipes out there? I'm trying to put more fruits and veggies in my diet. I eat too much bread. Mon, 2 Jun 2014 18:36:58 EST bad luck http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5707698 Didn't have much luck today doing the yard sale either. In other news I'm a pound away from reaching my goal! Then I can make a new one. I'll be so glad when I reach 289. Tired of seeing 300 and the 290's. Thinking about making my mums basement into a gym. I can't take my daughter to work out because I'm scared she will get hurt. Sat, 31 May 2014 21:27:51 EST yard sale http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5707112 Didn't have much luck with the yard sale. I know my pooch doesn't have mange. Had to throw that in. I can't get motivated to walk. I hate at the end of the day I stuff my face. I passed the orientation quizzes for weight loss surgery. Now I have to do paper work. I've got my fingers crossed that I can get lap band. Fri, 30 May 2014 22:01:18 EST Garage Sale,Lapband,and other odds and ends http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5706519 Garage Sale: Today I'm going to be having my first garage sale on my own. I'm nervous. I hope people come. I'm not all that great at math though. I have mostly baby stuff, but I have a couple of other things too. <BR> <BR> Lap Band: I found out I'm a candidate for surgical weightloss or non-surgical weight loss plans. My preference is surgical. I have to watch videos,take quizzes,and print documents. In order to do this I need a computer and printer. I just hope my insurance will pay for it.... Fri, 30 May 2014 05:35:32 EST tired of liars http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5698178 Marriage is a joke. This is why I gained all my weight back.

I wish therewas social classes that teach people to be social and not to be scared that people will laugh at what you say.on another note i lost 2lbs. I've noticed if I stop my routine just for a day I fall behind and get lazy. My goal today is 1 mile but might do 2. My goal for the week is 10 miles. Tue, 13 May 2014 15:43:45 EST reaching goals http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5690087 Last week I reached my goal of 7 miles. Almost to my goal for this week. My goal is still 7. If I go over I won't mind. So far I've done 6 miles. I try to do 1 mile a day,but lately I do 2. Yesterday I didn't walk. No biggy. I've been eating less. I'm trying to hold back on sweets,because I don't want my daughter eating them. Only as treats. I hate when other people give her soda,coffee,and candy. She's only 14 months going on 15. I don't want her to end up like me. I'm trying to set a good ... Wed, 7 May 2014 21:44:34 EST cant break it. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5687782 I can't seem to break the 300 mark. When I do get under it I gain it back. Trying to walk 2 miles a day,but make my goal a mile a day. I hhaven't been eating as much. I drink nothing hut water. On occasion I'll drink juice. I'm thinking I have Pcos. My periods are off. I'll go 3-4 months without a period. Last month I bled 1 day. Something isnt right. I'm trying my hardest to lose eight. My body doest want to cooperate. Mon, 5 May 2014 08:15:10 EST weigh in http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5664935 I gained 4lbs. I do good then I get in a slump and eat my way out of it. I'm really trying my hardest. Its hard when you have a 13mo old. I try to stay away from temptations but eventually I give in. I'm not trying to deprive myself. I guess I need to rewrite my goals. If I do good eating all week and walk I'll reward myself. Sat, 5 Apr 2014 10:16:46 EST depressed http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5663023 I feel if I wasn't fat people would want to talk to me and hang out.

Fri, 21 Mar 2014 13:22:55 EST calorie counting http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5651953 It takes a lot of time to count calories and I def don't have the time or measuring cups to accurately measure the food. Do we use most of the cals we eat? Should I not worry about fruit and veggie cals and make them a treat instead? I have a 1 year old and its hard to sit and really count all of them. I think I did pretty good today counting. But it really is time comsuming. Is there an easier way? I didn't walk the last 2 days due to running errands. I've been taking hydroxycut to help boos...

I'll be full and I just won't stop. I don't know what is wrong with me. I know I'm doing. Today I'm going to walk 2miles. And tomorrow 1mile. Maybe tricking my body would help. Instead of eating I'll do things to keep me busy. Not saying I'll starve myself. I can't wait until they have the new nutrition labels on food. Maybe I could actually count calories. I feel so miserable. I need to lose weight to be here for my d...
