I have always been able to lose weight on it but keeping it off will be the the big test! I am determined this time. I cannot believe how much better I feel with this initial 30 pounds gone. My aches and pains have almost completely disappeared. I actually look forward to walking. I have started using the fitbit and have synced it with Sparkpeople. I keep getting ...

Best part is a friend who owns a water front condo is letting us use it. Otherwise we probably would not go!! lol I need to relax and so do my husband and daughter. Life can be exhausting. I hope you all take time to relax. <BR> Terri Mon, 18 Mar 2013 13:57:59 EST Weight Watchers http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5291212 Hi guys, <BR> I did Nutrisystem last year as a jump start and I did pretty good (lost 21). The food got a little boring by July but I stuck it out til August which was the date to start WEIGHT WATCHERS. I have always loved Weight watchers. I am a lifer. I started in August and have lost 32 so far. I love it because I can eat regular food. I use Saturday (weigh-in day) as a stay in points + weeklies day. I eat anything I was craving. Nutrition goes out the window on those days. I love my meet... Mon, 18 Mar 2013 13:51:35 EST Our Summer http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5110143 I went into the summer on a positive note. I jumpstarted my weight loss with Nutrisystem like I planned. I lost 25 pounds. My next step was to get back to Weight Watchers. NS was too expensive to stay on for the long haul. <BR> We have had a few exciting things happen. Our middle child, Brandon, decided he wanted to join the National Guard. He went to Basic Training for 5 months and we to Missouri to watch him graduate. We took a side trip to Branson for a vacation. We hada good time. We too...

Oh how I wish he were back on the show. I was about 40 years old here and he was 36. Not too much older. lol <BR> That was the only time I went to get in line to pose with someone and get an autograph. Well worth it. Been watching DOOL since the 70s. <BR> Terri <BR> <BR> <BR> Mon, 28 May 2012 03:37:09 EST Still on Nutisystem http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4870127 I stalled a bit during the birthday season. 4 birthdays in 8 weeks in our immediate family here plus Easter plus vacation ( met some Internet friends for the first time in 12 years). Now Mother's Day and a trip to New Orleans. I feel like every 5 days food comes flying toward my head. I have still done well. I wanted to lose 30 by now but I have lost 24. I am 6 lbs. off. I will make that up after we go to Missouri to pick my son up after his graduation from Basic. <BR> Spring is always hard ... Mon, 7 May 2012 09:23:41 EST Week no. 7 on NUTRISYSTEM http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4756290 I just weighed in. I lost 2.1 this week. Total for 7 weeks is 20.9 pounds down. <BR> I am really loving this plan. I am getting more confident that I can do this on my own. I have learned so much about portion sizes. This will be the first weekend on my own. I am still doing the protein shakes. I have a lot of those left. I have been sick all week but since it was a sinus infection it did not do anything to my appetite. I ate well and it was a little harder cause I was home all day for 6 d... Sat, 25 Feb 2012 10:13:27 EST Trying a different plan on NS http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4749489 My daughter and I decided last night to change over to the Women's weekends on our own plan. We will stay within the same calories for each meal eat our fuel and smart carbs. This way I can get a few frozen meals I miss (example WW cheeseburger or the garlic rolls from lean cuisine). I can also eat out once in awhile. I have eaten out 4 times since starting NS (going away dinner for my son, date with my husband...) and I was conscious of what I ate. I did smaller portions and ate a little of... Tue, 21 Feb 2012 12:19:36 EST Still Losing http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4748006 I Lost 1.1 this week. Could have been better but it is still a loss. I have lost 18.8 so far and on my order in March I should receive my 20 pound bear. I just missed it this time around. It was a nice surprise to receive POUND BEAR! When I get a craving I look at him and it really helps. <BR> I just ate a steak and cheese melt. My son took a bite and he said it tasted like a hot pocket. He loved it! <BR> Have a great day! <BR> Terri <BR> Mon, 20 Feb 2012 15:40:48 EST What do I get to eat? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4734849 I just wanted to explain to anyone who was curious about NUTRISYSTEM what you get to eat besides the food they send. <BR> My plan is the women's success plan. <BR> There is an option after every meal to add more food. Example, like if you need to add something to your meal or just eat something extra. You can put the calories in. I have food entered in MY FOOD. <BR> Breakfast: breakfast entrée <BR> protein shake (chocolate, vanilla or strawberry) <BR> Add ...

Usually I have to be up awhile and fall into an activity. <BR> Our new Bridge Street shopping plaza had a ribbon, or I mean shoestring cutting and opened the 3/4 mile trail round the lake. <BR> It seemed longer but hey it was hot. It started at 10:30 in the morning. We walked twice around. It is so pretty and there are so many people to watch so it really goes fast. I want to go there often. I had 11000 steps by ...

Learn to love yourself for who you are, not who you wish to be. Acknowledge that you need to improve your health or weight but believe that you will do what you can to be the best you can possibly be. When we understand and appreciate our bodies, we are able to work with them, not against them! <BR> <BR> "I know I will never be...

No, because: <BR> 1.You don't want to die. <BR> 2. You don't want to hurt anyone else. <BR> 3. It is against the law. <BR> <BR> Would you jump out of an airplane without a chute? No, because <BR> 1.

You don't want everyone mad at you if they save you and bring you back abourd ship. <BR... Mon, 30 Jun 2008 03:45:48 EST Digging deep and writing it down http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=1298264 I decided to update my page. I am putting all that is important to me down. I never do this. I think this is what I need to succeed. <BR> Let me know what you think. I kind of keep to myself but I need to share. If it is all out there what is holding me back? I have been so motivated by a lot of your pages that I want to be motivating to anyone that reads it and especially to myself. I want to get to goal again. I want to stay there. Anyone with me? Let's do this! <BR> <BR> <BR> Th... Fri, 27 Jun 2008 16:57:58 EST It takes a tragedy to make you STOP and think http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=1295848 About a month ago a co-worker of my husband's (He works for NASA) went to walk outside at lunchtime for exercise, like she did everyday, and she collapsed and died. She was 53, thin and had no history of heart problems. It makes you STOP and think. If it happened to her, someone who kept their weight down and exercised, then it can DEFINATELY happen to me. She had a 17 yr. old son. It was so sad. He sang and played guitar at her memorial. <BR> I don't want my kids to have to go through... Thu, 26 Jun 2008 15:14:50 EST New Pictures (finally) on my page http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=1288717 We went to a wedding recently and I wanted to add recent pictures <BR> of my kids especially since my daughter lost 30 pounds. I haven't been able to add pics but I just learned how to resize, yay!!!!! <BR> This is only the 3rd wedding we went to since the 80's. We have to travel to Ohio for these weddings. I guess when my kid's friends and our friend's kids start getting married we will go to more. <BR> We had such fun. I am actually starting to become computer savvy. <BR> LOL <BR> Ter... Mon, 23 Jun 2008 16:08:27 EST wild animal made us work harder http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=1284473 Brittany and I walked our dog Tanner last night. While we were walking Tanner saw movement on someone's grass and we didn't know what it was at first (dark out) and I am eliminating animals in my head (a bunny would run, a small dog would either come to us or run away…) then I saw white outlines <BR> and a fan of a tail form. I pulled Tanner back (he wanted to go after him) and yelled to Brittany “It’s a skunk, run.” We had to run up this second hill that we went down. He made us kick... Sat, 21 Jun 2008 12:35:16 EST 2-3 weeks of hard work to undo 9 days of fun http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=1277159 Here are my three kids (Bamathin) getting ready for the wedding we traveled to Ohio for. We had a great time and we ate but we walked many hills in my hometown of Shadyside. I gained 5 pounds. <em>46</em> I could have easily dained 10 pounds. We did not have 1 home cooked meal. I am going to work hard to get this off. I wish it came off as easily as it was put on. <BR> We Can do this, Now back to work. <BR> Terri <BR> Tue, 17 Jun 2008 22:50:33 EST
