Now most of the food items I eat are already in my favorites list so it does not take me so long. The nutrition tracker has been a huge part in my weight loss. Before I started tracking my food I had no idea how many calories, carbs protein or fat was in a food that I ate almost everyday. No wonder I was not losing weight in the start I was eating more calories than I burned. I had n... Fri, 31 Jul 2009 16:01:24 EST Keeping it off but not losing http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2228083 Well I have been keeping the weight off and have not gained anything yet I havent lost anything either. I have cut back on my structured work outs in favor of more outdoor activites to get my cardio in. It is alot more fun because it mostly involves my kids. I always spent my freetime working out when the kids were napping because it is soooo hard to work out with a baby trying to crawl up you leg. Yesterday we walked about 5 miles in 90 degree heat around the park. We stopped to let the kid... Tue, 14 Jul 2009 12:10:05 EST Well..... Rome wasnt built in a day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2079571 So I am over halfway through bootcamp and I have lost one pound. I stinking pound. I dont get it I was doing soooooo great at losing the weight for the past few months and now that I have 14 days left till my wedding I am still 4 pounds shy of my 115 goal. I have 3 weeks till my honeymoon and I look good now but I still want to lose extra baby pounds. I know that after 3 kids and two c-sections my tummy is NEVER going to look like it used to and it really sucks but I have learned to deal with... Wed, 20 May 2009 18:58:58 EST Bootcamp May 2009- Day one! May 3rd http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2028238 <BR> It is the official first day of bootcamp and I did the video three times today. I know a bit much but I am so super excited to be doing this. I am used to doing my normal routine but now I feel refreshed in a way to change it up a bit and actually follow a different routine. I hope to get my tummy and thighs toned as well us my upper body. I have never had sculpted arms and that is something I would like to achieve. I am not looking for body building status but I would rather not have ... Sun, 3 May 2009 13:23:51 EST Bootcamp- I am soooo excited! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2026749 I have been a member of Sparks for over 6 months now. For 9 months I have been serious about losing weight. It all came to me from looking at pictures of myself. I couldnt fit into any of my pre baby clothes after a few months, and my shirts didnt cover my belly. I thought breastfeeding would melt the pounds away. It did help but after I stopped I gained weight. For the first time yesterday I took a picture of myself in a bikini! I put all my pictures from start to now of my weight loss journ... Sat, 2 May 2009 23:07:36 EST Finally!! Almost 2 years later! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=1990402 I have been keeping my positive out look though the weight has been coming off sooo slowly. The last 10 pounds have been torture. I had my daughter almost 11 months ago, so for almost 2 years I have not worn my fave pair of jeans. I was about 110 pounds before I became preggo in late August 2007. I left the hospital at 140 lbs in May of 2008. On a small frame like mine, I looked like a blimp. I am only 5'2! Breastfeeding for the first 3 months really helped with the weight loss, but after I... Mon, 20 Apr 2009 17:55:12 EST Change in your life http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=1949589 If you want to make a change in your life, it all starts with the right mindset. There’s a big difference between being interested in changing and committing to taking the steps to make that change. <BR> <BR> Being interested means sticking to what’s convenient, what’s comfortable and what’s practical and easy. In other words, there isn’t a whole lot of energy involved. <BR> <BR> Commitment, on the other hand, is full of power. It’s about going out of your comfort zone, doing whatever it ta... Mon, 6 Apr 2009 20:48:19 EST So sick, and i am worried http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=1939947 I have not been able to excercise for 5 days now. I have been beyond sick. Last night alone I was up from 2-5 in the morning. I have hardly been able to do anything. I just worry that I am going to gain the weight back that I have lost. Not only that I dont want to fall into the habit of not excercising. I had been jogging 3 miles a day, everyday for cardio, along with other things here and there. I was feeling so proud of my self, 3 months ago, I could barely do 1 mile, and through dedicatio... Fri, 3 Apr 2009 12:45:22 EST
