I have decided to just go back to keeping it simple! I do better that way. I do like having monthly goals but it will be simple. This month I am doing my own little challenge called GET UP AND DO SOMETHING I am going to get a pedometer to track all my steps. I will also be working on my water challenge to drink more. Yesterday I had about 5 cups. And my final challenge is the leslie sansone walk challenge. That is it! ... Tue, 14 Apr 2015 10:19:23 EST March went to the toilet! Lets hope April will be a success http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5907128 Ok I am not going to write a few paragraphs of why I gave up March,I did... and once again have some good excuses... but I will not talk about it,because now I am going to try like hell once again and do this! <BR> <BR> My plans for April: <BR> DRINK WATER!! (at least drink my 4 cup mark for now) <BR> LOG FOOD(or points from ww not sure yet which one I will do) <BR> WEAR PEDOMETER (to get me off couch) <BR> <BR> Those are my goals for the month,not to hard. If I can do it this month then ne... Tue, 7 Apr 2015 13:35:39 EST My March plan http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5885468 Its march!! closer to spring! I am so ready for it. Ready for walks up town with my little guy and taking the dog out for walks. But i hate my summer wardrobe :( But I am ready for my march challenge and perhaps I can loose a little and get some new sorts or tops. <BR> <BR> Feb challenge was so so... started out pretty strong then the last week I just did not do it! so for my yoga challenge I did 3 wks and the 4th I did not even do once! And my water goal was not so hot as well! So for t... Mon, 2 Mar 2015 10:55:07 EST getting my ducks in a row http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5874489 So far my feb challenges have not gone exactly the way i wanted it to. I was wishing to do yoga every day,that has not happened. I have not totally blew it,but I have skipped a couple days. I love doing yoga! and I feel I am getting better and able to stretch deeper now. My water challenge I will admit I have sucked at that! Like wow horrible! I dont think I even had any water at all yesterday to drink. That's bad :( <BR> <BR> I dont understand how I can do pretty good at something and fai... Thu, 12 Feb 2015 11:37:09 EST my agenda for Feb. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5870146 I decided to have a challenge for feb to keep me motivated. I chose to do Yoga this month. Since I am not very flexible i am doing yoga for dummies and complete beginners with Jen Hillman on you tube. I love her stuff! The yoga for dummies that she has are in 4 segments so I figure etch week I will do one segment. So next week I will do #2. my goal is to do it every night. To be honest I missed 2 days this week. I hope this next week will be better. My second challenge is to drink at least 6 ... Thu, 5 Feb 2015 15:10:48 EST challenges http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5864520 So there are a lot of people I know doing some type of fitness challenge for a months duration. I think I am gonna jump on that band wagon! I need to decide what challenge to go with for the month of feb. I need to choose from this list <BR> 1. 30 day yoga challenge <BR> 2. 30 day shred <BR> 3. one mile walk for 30 days <BR> <BR> Which ever one i pick I will try to also add a small goal to go along with it as well. LIke if I pick the one mile daily then I will try to also do 4 days of yoga f... Wed, 28 Jan 2015 13:18:51 EST New plan http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5860867 I have decided to go in a diff direction for now. I am doing awesome with working out and doing yoga! I have not been tracking my food this week. My last blog I talked about how I have been gaining and it just gets me down a bit. Seems like if I don't track I do better. I don't know, could all just be in my head! But for now I am going to focus on water intake, because that really needs some improving! And I'm gonna keep up my streak of yoga and aerobics. Once I maintain a good grip on those... Fri, 23 Jan 2015 09:28:29 EST what got me started again http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5857840 Ok so before Christmas I got on the scale and discovered that i lost about 6lbs. I was excited,so I said to myself after christmas i will start back at sparkpeople and track my food and fitness again. well now this is what I dont understand?? Since I have started back up I have gained 3lbs!! I dont understand how? I am tracking and yes some days I go over,but i wasnt even tracking before,How did I loose the weight? Sometimes I honestly feel I do better not thinking about dieting. For some rea... Mon, 19 Jan 2015 11:07:49 EST Getting out of the lazy's! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5855360 I am doing it!! I have worked out 3 days in a row now!! Woo Hoo!!! I gotta say it does feel good. I did 2 days of Leslie's one mile express. Today I wanted to see what I had in me, so I did level 1 of the 30 day shred. Wow!! It was rough,but I made it through. I could not do one push up I never could do those dang things! I could not keep going with the moves as long as they could, but I gave it my best, so I am happy!! And I broke the lazy cycle! Now I need to decide if I want to continue th... Thu, 15 Jan 2015 21:55:18 EST Some goals I set are going great...some not http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5854326 Well I am still logging even if it is bad! I have been over just about every day,but not by a ton so I am thankful for that! We are low on groceries right now till pay day so I am not able to make as many healthy choices as I would like. I did do a aerobic work out last night and it felt good to do it again, but it was hard! It is sad when a one mile walk with Leslie Sansone is hard. It was her 1 mile express,so it was a little more intense,but I was doing her 2 mile last yr. I think if I a... Wed, 14 Jan 2015 13:12:01 EST I came back to my mat! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5849093 It's day 3 for me so far. I had a horrible start to my day! After my bad morning I pretty much set myself up for failure. I ate way to much today. And I am hungry at the moment, so I will have more food to log to the list. But I told myself I was gonna end the day good... I was going to return to my mat,and I did!! It was so nice to stretch again and have that me time!! Also I am starting day one of making my child sleep in his own bed. He is 6 now! We started letting him sleep with us what w... Wed, 7 Jan 2015 23:47:24 EST Diet starts Monday! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5848132 So it's January, time to eat better! My sisters and I and my best friend are all doing this together. We check in on voxer daily ( so far ) we started yesterday, and we labeled the chat DIET STARTS MONDAY since we started Monday, and it's a quote from Chris Farley in Gap girls from SNL. So far the past 2 days have gone ok. I'm not stressing to much. Just trying to log everything, and trying to up my water intake. I would love to work out, but have not made the time so far. I want to attem... Tue, 6 Jan 2015 22:55:44 EST what do you think? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5803563 ok so I have been thinking about shakeology and those kinds of drinks lately. What do you all think of them? First of all there is just no way i could afford shakeology,so if you have tried anything similar that is way more pocket friendly please share with me your thoughts. I honestly hear that they are good for you,but seems like processed packaged stuff to me. I am just so sluggish these days,and need something to give me energy,and i am horrible at eating veggies,so this could be a good... Thu, 23 Oct 2014 19:52:08 EST so much time has passed,and a lot has happened http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5802815 Its been a while! But I have decided( once again) its time to get back at it. I have not gained,but I have lost my motivation and a lot that goes with that. So for now I am gonna get back to tracking even if it is bad! I need to start trying to work out even if for just a short amount of time. I would like to try this and see if it does not get me motivated again. <BR> So much has happened since my last blog. I was doing ok,then one by one we all got sick in my family,and from then on ... Wed, 22 Oct 2014 12:44:01 EST Drink! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5678462 I don't know what is going on with me,but I am just slipping up. My water intake has been horrible for a while now. So I need to get back to the basics! Tracking my water,and just focusing on water and logging my foods. So dissapointing when you are doing so well,then it all unravels. But I will not quit. I just need to refocus,and get strict with my self again. <BR> <BR> <em>91</em> <em>521</em> <em>91</em> <em>521</em> Wed, 23 Apr 2014 07:54:43 EST 2 steps back... or more http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5677080 I sorta fell off the wagon... again! I used up my ww tracker book,and then I got sick for a week. So I just sort of stopped tracking. I did not totally go overboard,but there was some damage done. I was feeling well enough to track friday,but thought I may as well start back up after Easter. I know probably not the best Idea,but it is what I did. I gained back a pound,i know doesn't sound like much,but I could tell in my stomach it was more bloated and some inches crept back on. I also have... Mon, 21 Apr 2014 12:42:56 EST loving Yoga http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5665837 <em>401</em> <BR> I am so happy,I am now in level 1 vinyasa yoga!!!!! I have done the beginners for a few months now,and I put on level one from sportskool on the roku channel and I made it through the entire 40min! I was so happy I clapped at the end :) It was awesome and fun and challenging. I was not able to hold the down dog as long as the instructor could,but it is a FAR improvement from 3 months ago!! the most challenging move for me in this video is the boat pose. so hard!! <BR> ... Sun, 6 Apr 2014 16:57:39 EST small changes http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5660909 I am noticing some changes in the way I look lately,and the way my clothes fit. My jeans are starting to get a little loose in areas. My double chin doesn't look as hideous lol! My wedding ring can now spin around easily! These few small changes have also changed something inside of me. I feel better about my self,I am not disgusted at my self now,I actually look in the mirror and feel positive! I know I dont look the way I want to yet,but I know i am transforming slowly,and I will be the... Mon, 31 Mar 2014 13:41:35 EST Hello week 5 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5658685 Past couple days have been good,however week 4 was terrible! I went through all the extra weekly points mid week! I am on the old ww program,not the points plus. And let me tell you when I went over for the day,I went over by a landslide! It was not good. It all started last friday we had a funeral to go to for my husbands dads girlfriend. they had a luncheon after the burial,and I ate what was provided,there really wasn't much healthy choices! then it just all got out of control from there.... Fri, 28 Mar 2014 13:41:16 EST WW week 4 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5651552 Today starts my 4th week on WW. I have to say I have really learned allot this month. It has not been perfect,the weekend were killers,but I have hung in there through the good and bad. I have had amazing people telling me not to give up,and I am so glad! Not trying to focus on the weight every week,but since I started I have lost about 4 lbs. I did not adjust my ticker,before starting,but i remember weighing myself day one of ww. <BR> <BR> <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/1/7... Wed, 19 Mar 2014 12:13:59 EST ww week 3 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5646057 well today starts week 3. I did not do so well for week 2. I'm not gona lie,I am a little disappointed. I started the week out strong(my week starts wed) then the weekend hit and it just went down hill. I was over points 4days,and i went one point over for the weekly allowance :( So as expected I did not loose any weight,but I did not gain either,so that's good. <BR> I'm in that stage that I get in where I get burnt out but why?? its not like i have been doing this for 3 months,i just sta... Wed, 12 Mar 2014 09:54:39 EST Feeling powerful http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5641297 Since last night,something changed in me with this whole weight loss business. I FINALLY feel like I will do this,I will succeed! It may take me a while,and honestly I am fine with that(esp since I bought new clothes the other day)But I will do it! I feel powerful for once,and not helpless! <BR> <em>404</em> It is a good feeling to have! I am week 2 in WW,I know it is the same principle as calorie counting,but for some reason,it is now working for me. I think b/c I can quickly check the p... Thu, 6 Mar 2014 11:12:41 EST W W week 1 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5639623 I had a friend (the one I babysit for) give me all of her weight watchers books and point sliders and so on,so I decided to give it a try and see what happens. I dont seem to be getting any results with the way I am doing it now. But it seems to be the same principle as calorie counting. but for me a lot less time consuming! which I love that aspect. I have books to look up what I am eating. Most the time it is in there,and I just find my points. If not in the book,I have my slider to find... Tue, 4 Mar 2014 14:58:10 EST I forgive my self http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5623178 Well it is near the end of the week,and I am just now getting back on track :( better now than never I guess! I was doing great,pumped and proud,then came last weekend. I got very blah. My Husband was in one of his moods,he gets depressed doesn't know why,and sleeps for an entire day!! I just hate it!! It gets me depressed I am sort of a moody person anyhow as it is. I am happy when everyone around me is happy,but if someone is blah or depressed,It seems to rub off on me. I guess it could be ... Thu, 13 Feb 2014 14:07:04 EST Doing good and bad http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5615121 Well I told my self last week since I was sticking to my 2 goals, water and exorcise,that I will start logging my foods this week. Today is day 1. It is always kind of scary and annoying the first few days,just seeing how fast the calories add up,and looking at the little amt you have left to get through for the rest of the day! But it will not be perfect at first,but as the days go on I will get better. <BR> I am happy to report I am up to 8 glasses of water a day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!... Tue, 4 Feb 2014 15:25:11 EST It can be done! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5608942 So for about 2 wks now I have been making some healthy changes in my life! I have been power walking 4 days out of the week. thinking of adding one more day actually. And yoga almost every night. I have missed the past 2 nights actually on yoga. I babysit every other week from 6am to about 4. this is my week on,and I keep falling asleep. I like to do it when every one is in bed so I can have total relaxation. But on the weeks I have the baby I need to schedule it in earlier I guess. I am prou... Wed, 29 Jan 2014 08:29:23 EST still at it! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5603449 I am proud of myself! I have worked out every day since sun,I took tues off for rest. I will prob take 2 rest days. Yesterday my lower back was hurting pretty bad,so I did the one mile walk and yoga before bed. I am getting better with the yoga,some days I feel more at ease with it,and sometimes I feel very stiff,hard to do some of the moves with out the modification. But all in all I am feeling better,less pain,and much better posture! I have noticed a diff in the way my body looks,so has m... Thu, 23 Jan 2014 14:09:51 EST I did it!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5599143 Thurs into the weekend,my lower back was hurting bad,into my right hip area. It was so tight and painful. I was doing some google research because that's how I roll lol! And found some good yoga stretches to do for my back,which led me to youtube and found Jen Hilman. she has videos for beginning yoga,and for back pain. I gotta say I love her videos! She really shows you how to modify if you are so tight in hips and glutes and other areas. I could do most of the moves,it was so peaceful and... Sun, 19 Jan 2014 16:27:52 EST I got Nothing http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5590139 Ok So I still have not been trying! what is wrong with me?? I dont know why I just dont get off my butt and get going with this! I look in the mirror and get upset,you would think that would motivate me to get busy,but nope!! Then I go to the store and get healthy foods,but destroy it with cookies and ice cream,you name it! and yes I will partake in all those sweets in one day! I just wish that someone would come to my house and force me to get going!! I know that it has to be me that does i... Sat, 11 Jan 2014 11:08:31 EST Control http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5576541 Well the Holidays are at a close. Sad to see them end,but I am ready for the new yr and what it will bring. Not to many goals this yr,just striving to be a healthier person. I am sick now,all my family was sick over christmas,and now it hit me. So just taking it easy now,trying to heal. I am only babysitting 2 days this week :) Then off next week,so that is a nice break! <BR> <BR> I am a little disappointed in my eating over the holidays! I had it in my head to have control and limit sweets,... Tue, 31 Dec 2013 10:38:05 EST One more day! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5568726 One more day of work and I am free for a week!! Still eating pretty good,need to get breakfast in though! The weeks I have the baby,it (my schedule) is just shot to sunshine! I gotta say the past couple days he has been pretty good! I think I am just feeling guilty and blaming him because I am not focused as much when I have him. But You do what you can do,maybe I will make a diff plan the weeks I have him,that way I am not feeling down that I am not on track for the day. I did talk to hi... Fri, 20 Dec 2013 13:23:36 EST irritable http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5567160 So I am feeling irritated the past few days. I am eating ok,and doing great on water intake. still sucking at working out! I just feel stressed,I'm pretty sure it is due to my job! I babysit every other week,6 am to 4pm (some times longer) He is a 7month old. cute boy,but I have learned I just dont really enjoy babies but my own. I love kids,give me a pre school aged kid and I will have a ball,but I don't do well with babies crying and needing so much! I dont like to admit that,but hey it is... Wed, 18 Dec 2013 10:12:22 EST a little pick me up! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5561699 So I went and got my hair chopped today! it felt good. I feel more stylish,and less frump girl!! I got a inverted bob. It is very short! I will post pics of it on my profile tomorrow. I just hope when I shower tomorrow and style it,it will look good!! I thought I have been making some improvements this week,and had a good breakthrough with my hubby sunday...so it was time to spend a little and do something to make me feel better...a little pick me up! <BR> <BR> My progress this week h... Tue, 10 Dec 2013 23:00:54 EST For me!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5558266 So I was sulking yesterday,over my weight, self esteem, and issues in my life, <BR> that have not got resolved. I just went into my bedroom and sort of let it all out of how and why I am feeling the way that I am. I was sort of shocked,I just realized I dont think I can change,I dont think I am anything special,I think I am ugly,and that is why I have no motivation to do things for my self like put on a nice outfit,do my hair nice,make up,and so on. I have been so blaah and extremely lazy... Fri, 6 Dec 2013 09:54:57 EST Starting over! AGAIN http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5556786 well Here I am again! back to square one. I have been of spark people for probably 6 months! I was just doing what I wanted not caring anymore,thinking I will fail anyways so what is the point? enjoy your food,you will never be shiny again! And I did just that! but now I look in the mirror and see my starting of a double chin,a protruding stomach that starts underneath my breasts and goes all the way down. So I decided last night that it was time to get pack on spark people! <BR> <BR> I wi...

I sort of ate bad over the 4th,and have not been working out as much. So much still on my mind I am not as focused as I should be. But i do manage to get my walks in, and have been walking the dog every evening when it is not raining. I am happy to see some results in my appearance. Looking back at my winter pics i can see the difference in my face and neck area. Now i want to see a difference in my stomach!! But I will be patient...this is not a race. <B... Tue, 9 Jul 2013 13:27:31 EST My life!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5386195 I have not been very active on here,but I am still trying to get healthier,even though my life is a mess!!! My marriage has seen better days...way better days! I am unhappy,and just tired of trying to hang on to what seems like nothing! I have been married 13 yrs,and it just seems to long to throw away. I also have a little one who would be devastated!!! I just don't know what happened? we were going great for about 3-4 yrs then I found out his addiction to pornography. I had a bill come in... Tue, 11 Jun 2013 19:44:12 EST Advantages of being poor! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5356200 So I put on my size 14 jeans today that were to tight a few months back,and I really had to suck it in to almost be able to zip it up...then I had to put a hair band in the button hole and wrap around the snap to keep them on me. Today they fit PERFECT!! <BR> I dont think I can give myself all the credit,Yes I have been walking and light jogging and moving more,but I think the main reason is we are just to poor!! we could not afford all the junk foods at the store,we are very limited righ... Tue, 14 May 2013 11:15:42 EST Going Backwards http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5338025 Ok Now I am going in the opposite direction with my goals! I wanted to focus on my eating and drinking water,then work on exorcising when I felt Goal #1 was sticking. Well some how I am not eating so hot...but actually exorcising. I am glad that I am out jogging/walking...I don't feel as lazy,and it really helps with my body aches. But now all the work I was doing with the foods has been shot to sunshine(Ben Linus) I no longer eat breakfast when I wake up,I have been having allot of sweets a...

I have had awful pains in my chest (right side) that radiate into my back(right side shoulder blade area) It just feels like I have a bag of rocks jam packed in there! And I am burping like crazy! I feel a second of relief after the burp,but then the pressure builds back up! I have not had a appetite whatsoever. When I sleep on my right side it is painful. Mon was the worst! each day seems to get better,but not fully gone yet. I have not been able to ru...

I started over the weekend,we have been blessed with gorgeous weather! Sun since my hubby was home,i just jogged down my street and walked when I needed to(which was allot) so far through out the week I have been just walking/jogging in my yard while my son plays! It is perfect,i can see him,and I am getting exorcise! At first i could only run one lap around my yard,then i had to walk...well today I ran 4 laps around,then walked. I just ... Wed, 10 Apr 2013 15:56:19 EST focus http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5312837 Ok so I have been in a weird funk lately. I was just getting down and discouraged (again) I just felt like whats the point ya know? It is so hard to stay focused,one little slip up can get you off track quickly!! And I was just tired of thinking about it all day and wandering what to eat,is it healthy? then my sister was in town,then Easter and I just started to give up and loose hope! The scary part is I was almost about to accept it!! I kept saying that eating healthy is a diet,because when... Fri, 5 Apr 2013 16:19:37 EST Good byes http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5297036 Just saw my sister and her family off yesterday! They are headed back to Oklahoma. It was good to see them,it had been almost 4 yrs since I saw them last. We had a whole week,but it only seemed like 4 or 5 hours! I love my family,and I get sad when we all have to go back to our homes. I come from a large family. A family of 9,7 siblings. And my siblings are my best friends. <BR> So last week for me was all about family! I did not really track what I was eating or not focusing on my goa... Sat, 23 Mar 2013 09:55:31 EST Just do it!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5280003 I was down in the dumps for a while,but now I am feeling better. I am just tired of pushing! But I know it is for the better of my life. Usually when I feel this way,I would just give up and do what I want for months on end,and tell my self who cares,eat how you want and be happy,but After a few months I was not happy at all!! So like I have said in most my blogs I am done with that! I was so happy 2 wks ago to see the numbers on the scale going down. Then to see I was out of the 170s it was... Sat, 9 Mar 2013 11:03:07 EST Not giving up! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5273433 So I have been slacking the past few days,and I have not been focusing on my goals. I was going to (last week) start logging in my foods and trying to work out at least 2x a week(hoping to work towards 4x) Well none of that happened!! <BR> <BR> I have been going strong for about 3 wks, and lost some weight,and people were noticing,I could see it in the mirror and on the scale! This is always when it happens for me! I say "well I can have a treat" that turns into a week treating fest!... Mon, 4 Mar 2013 21:50:20 EST Learning to say No http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5261419 So this week has not been the greatest for me eating healthy,but I have also done well considering how I was a few months back! I was going to my sisters yesterday and I kept saying "I am going to pig out, I just know it" I did enjoy 2 oreos and a glass of wine. But i also turned down other tempting things that she was offering me,like debbie cakes and candies. I enjoyed my treats,and now I keep pressing on. Then today we went to my mother in laws and she was offering me hershey kisses,and I ... Sat, 23 Feb 2013 20:18:38 EST Happy/mad http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5258153 Well I am thrilled to say I am no longer in the 170's weight! I was pushing towards 180 a few months ago. Got on the scale today,and I am now at 169 lbs!! It was a very good feeling to see that! I have lost about 5-6 lbs now just from watching what I eat and not having such huge portions! I also have been having breakfast every morning. I did not have any junk food in the house. It was so rough not having the sweets and all the processed stuff in my home. <em>244</em> <BR> <BR> Now this...

Although My mother in law is out to sabotage me!! God love her,she brings us groceries from time to time(she knows we struggle and she has such a helping heart) But she brings all the soda and cookies and all that kind of great wonderful bad for you stuff!! I gave up soda about a yr ago. I do have one from time to time,but i don't normally keep it in my house. Well mt dew is my favourite! She brou... Fri, 8 Feb 2013 21:41:14 EST
