I really couldn't tell you why?!? But.the important thing is........I'm back. So is my dear friend Nateese. I am unsure how any of you feel about the HCG shots....but my friend Nateese and I have started that. I'm on day 3, and she is on day 1 of the shots. I know it seems drastic, but I need the extra push to get me started. Besides I have a few friends that have successfully completed the HCG shot and.......WOW~ Huge difference. I honestly f... Wed, 13 Feb 2013 13:39:49 EST Eating out! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5210554 I was very proud of my self today! Today, my husband and I had to run into town (12-15 miles away from our home) to go to one of the many doctor's appointments my husband has. After, we went out to lunch because his daughter (my step-daughter) had gotten us a gift certificate to a place called HuHot! It is a all you can eat mongolian, cook-in-font of you type restaurant. I am pleased to say that I only had one bowl full of food. And I had chicken, some noodles, mushrooms, cabbage, brocco... Wed, 16 Jan 2013 19:53:07 EST Another day, another pound.... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5205195 Hello Fellow Sparks, <BR> So I had a slip yesterday and ate some things I should NOT have. Not like McDonald's or anything,..but my husband make Turkey pot pie with LOTS of gravy and fried up some tortilla's to make "chips. I had two helpings! <em>24</em> But I will say, since I have started Sparks...I have yet to drink any soda. Could that be one of the reasons why I've dropped some weight pretty fast???? Also yesterday, before I got into the shower, I weighed myself again. I had... Sun, 13 Jan 2013 15:04:45 EST Wow...this Spark thing is working! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5199344 So...I have been following everything I have been reading on Spark! Guess what??? I have already lost 6 lbs. Yes...I realize it is practically nothing...but for me...it's HUGE! And so quickly! I seriously thought I was doomed....forever to be stuck in this fat body...to never lose this awful weight. So...as I was saying....this is soooo working! Yay! <BR> <BR> I got up this morning, looked at the scale and with both dogs staring at me...I hopped on! I couldn't believe my eyes! Of ... Wed, 9 Jan 2013 19:33:16 EST Do a little dance, make a little food....get down today! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5194981 It's been awhile since I have made a blog post. I spent the last legs of winter break with the family. Today...school started for me. I am less than thrilled with that. I don't know why I am such a drag about it?? I have gotten straight A's since I have started last March. Maybe it's because I know any free time I did have.... to do pretty much anything I wanted is now....GONE! So like I said, I spent the last legs of winter break with the family. We played Wii games and snacked on he... Mon, 7 Jan 2013 12:35:00 EST Get to know me! Fun little questions!

Thu, 3 Jan 2013 16:55:15 EST Oh feel the burn baby...even though I'm only walking. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5186998 Alright! Both kids are back to school after winter break and the hubby is back to work. Time for round 3 with that darn treadmill! Again, I put on my version of yoga pants. (My tight sweat pants) and my over-sized t-shirt. Today I decided to NOT wear shoes, as I feel like I'm picking up giant weights as I attempt to walk on that torture machine! Instead...I borrowed a pair of my husbands super thick winter wool socks! Extra cushion ya know??? This time, I found one of my old CD's I ma... Wed, 2 Jan 2013 21:01:52 EST Happy New Year....and Whoa, what a hard change! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5184526 Happy New Year everyone! I made it! The family and I stayed up and had family game night. Nothing like Wii games to ring in the New Year! Anyhow...I have officially begun my lifestyle journey! Made a mistake and ate what I thought to be a healthy breakfast...but turned out to be WAYYYYY over my calorie intake! Oops! No three egg fully loaded veggie omelets for this mama! Hehehe! <BR> <BR> A good friend of mine was ever so kind and dropped off a Weslo Cadence CT 4.8 Treadmill for me... Tue, 1 Jan 2013 18:46:39 EST The New Year is almost among us! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5181235 We all survived 2012!!! And to think that the actual movie "2012" scared the daylights out of me. I'm someone who can watch horror movies all day long, everyday....but put a disaster movie on...and there goes my stomach. Strange huh? Anxiety attack full force. I usually have to turn off disaster movies half way through, just to calm down. Anyhow, so I am glad we all made it safely through 2012. Now.....bring on 2013. I have big plan you know! <BR> <BR> I am starting a new year in s... Sun, 30 Dec 2012 18:38:21 EST Just a shout out! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5181175 Awe, I just read all the nice comments that everyone has left me. Thank you so much for all the support. I am still very new to this and a little unclear as to how to respond back to all of you??? I did want to acknowledge that I read and appreciate all the kind words and time you all took to welcome me and encourage me to continue on this new path! <em>30</em> <BR> <BR> I am pleased to say that I have already started changing my diet. I have yet to really work out, but I believe I ... Sun, 30 Dec 2012 17:39:03 EST I think everything's gonna be alright! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5179144 I was pretty nervous joining, only because of all the failed attempts I have had in the past. I literally had to stop and remember that I have overcome some much already. I've been in school with a 3.85 GPA since last March, I quit smoking in October, and have made the choice to become healthy again. <BR> My dear Jim, who I have been with for well over 11 years now, but is still NOT my legal husband....was recently diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol.... Fri, 28 Dec 2012 19:41:17 EST Just starting. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5178287 I am just starting this journey and am hoping that it goes well. I need this to go well. I have to have this go well. This is my last resort. I have tried all sorts of weight loss things, and nothing has worked. I am fully aware that all of this is up to me, but I need motivation and will power. I have none. I am not beginning this until January 1st. Wish me luck. <em>239</em> Thu, 27 Dec 2012 23:50:46 EST
