Good morning ladies! I am sorry I have not been around much- just busy with life. I hope you all are well. As for me, I have gained back way too much weight and am unhappy about it. Today I am starting a new program where I have no sugar and low on carbs. The carbs I have come from fruits and veggies. I am willing to give this a month and see how I feel.
How is life treating all of you?

Way to go Schauna! That is awesome! I myself have gained back quite a lot of weight. I am changing my tracker so it has my honest weight loss and I am getting back to exercise. Yes, I am unhappy that I have fallen so hard, but I do have to give myself credit for getting back up and not giving up!
Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

Hi ladies! Just checking in :) Hope you all are doing well! I know a lot of you have me on facebook so you're pretty updated with my life of course :) If anyone else wants to add me to facebook just email me and Ill add ya! :)

Since January 7th I've lost a total of 40 lbs exactly! I'm about 10 lbs behind my goal because in the month of April-May I got a little off track and wasn't consistent with my workouts. But the numbers are going down again! I'm almost 60 lbs lighter then my all time high! Very exciting for me :)

I went to a dietician today to get a professional point of view on my food log/calorie intake/calories burned. Of course, I'm eating too low of calories. I kind of figured that was why my weight loss has slowed. As soon as she saw most of my days were 1300-1400 calories she immediately said to up it to at least 1800 with the amount of exercise I do. That's scary to me. I can easily eat 1400 calories and be happy with it. But I know its unhealthy too. It just kind of makes me mad that sparkpeople puts my range at 1330-1700 when its pretty far off of what I should be eating.

But who knows, I'll try the 1800 range and see how it works out :)

Sorry for the ranting... I try explain all this to my hubby or my mom and they just will never understand as much as you guys will haha :)

Other then being 100% focused on losing weight I'm staying VERY busy with work and hanging out with my family! Nothing new really :)

Happy Sunday and Mother's Day!
I hope you all are having a wonderful weekend! I graduated on Saturday with my BA and ECE teaching license and am done with school! I am so excited, I cannot even tell you how much! After six years, I have reached a goal, followed through without giving up. This is a big deal for me since I often do not follow through with and reach my goals. Kind of like my weight loss goals. I guess now is just as good of a time to start as any.

In any case, I hope you all have a great week!

Good evening everyone!
Like always, I am sorry I have been so absent here. The bright side is that I am graduating on Saturday and will be finished with school (for now). I will have a Bachelor's degree and an early childhood teaching license for the state of Colorado. I am so excited to be finished...to have seen something through to completion which has always been an issue for me. Then I will get back to taking care of me like I should, and I will reach my new goals.

I was wondering if you all are watching the news right now hearing about Bin Laden? I just do not know how to feel. I mean, I am not the type of person to wish death on someone, but he was an evil person who was long overdue in facing his evils.

Anyway, I hope you all have a wonderful week! I look forward to posting graduation pictures here to share with you, and to getting back to playing an active role here!
Peace to all!

Good to see you back Amber. Good luck on your new job.

Hope everyone who celebrates had a Happy Easter. We'll see how this derails my good eating ;) I've had lots of good food and little (if any) fruit or veg... but i dont feel so bad about it, which is important. The main thing is i am missing the healthy food, and not because of weight issues, but just because they make me feel good. I also have another ear infection, so i'm just going easy on myself.

Take care all!

Hi everyone, I am back, life got busy so I stopped posting but I will try to be more active. I am about to start working a second job and I excited about. I bought a nintendo wii last month with my tax refund as a way to get in some exercise and I love the wii sports boxing game it is a great way to relieve stress. I have also been doing walk away the pound video. My goal is to get in 10 minutes of exercise a day.

Susan - that is great that you got your husband to join. I can't get mine to but I did finally get him to join the gym with me! It is so much better having someone to work out with. Great job on your trophy too! Congrats!

Hey ladies. It has been so long since I posted. I have been on tracking my food and all but just haven't been into the posting so much. I have gained almost all of my weight back and have been super depressed about that. I am getting back on track but it is just so hard to get it back off! Glad to see everyone is doing well! Hope to start posting more often.

Shauna - Congrats on your weight loss and school. Good to hear from you again.

Schlumpy - Congrats on your weight loss! You did it!

Susan - Good job on taking a break and NOT gaining the weight! Wish I could say the same....Are you still taking karate? I just tested last Saturday and am now an orange belt. I love it!

Hello all! Boy, it has been too long. I'm hoping i too am back to my weight loss mojo and sparkpeople, but we'll see. Luckily my weight hasn't flucuated more than 5 lbs or so. I'm still down (as of Tues) 59 or so lbs from my highest. I just am stuck around 150 (for the last 2 yrs!). But i haven't been great in my eating and working out so at least i'm happy i haven't gained a ton back.

I'm doing a new workout program called Supreme 90, which is why i think i'm a little excited about sparking again. I blogged about it if you want to read it.

Kat - always great to see you! When did you meet the biggest losers?? I'm sorry i missed hearing about it, would you mind telling again?

Schuanna - good to see you back. Awesome job on your weight loss, and school and job. 50 lbs - way to go!

Schlumpy - holy cow! size 6! You are amazing! Sorry to hear about your parents. And that people aren't that nice now that you're so skinny ;( And i know what you mean about guys. I had a guy at work obviously flirting with me at a meeting (ok, maybe he's just really friendly), but i thought "if this is the way really hot girls get treated, i dont know if i'd like it". It's just another weird emotional feeling.

Take care all!
Susan

Hi Schauna,
I am so excited for you and all you have done for yourself. I can't wait to be there myself...I will graduate with my BA in May and will be able to make my life my own again. I am thinking about doing a couch to 5K type of program.
I hope you all are well!

Hey everyone!! Ok so I've changed my sparkpeople account 3 times now since you've known me! I really don't know why, probably because everytime I take "a break" I forget my login username/pass. Go figure! Anyways, you may remember me as xGodessx or Krischauna! This is my last username since this time around I'm fully on track and definately losing!! I've been 100% commited since Jan 9th, 2011! I started this "journey" last April 2010 and lost 30 lbs. From August to December I took another "break" and gained about 12 lbs back. Since them I'm almost down 50 lbs total! Very exciting! My friends and family are noticing and it feels good :)

I finally feel like my life is on track -- done with school, have a full time job, etc. Now its just time for ME to get back on track, so I'm excited! Today is my biggest loser weigh in day for my at work challenge! Kind of excited to see it since last week I lost 4.2 lbs. This challenge was the best thing that could of happened right now because I was kind of getting into a funk and only losing about 2 lbs a week (which I know is healthy!) and now I have found so much more motivation to work out every day, be more strict on my calorie intake, and take my vitamins daily!

OH yeah! I've been blogging: http://theskinnydreams.blogspot.com :)

Hello my friends. I am enjoying the extra sunlight but hated losing that hour of sleep. I forgot all about the time change so it meant I got home at 4 am instead of 3 am. That was not cool since I had to be at work at 8:45. I made it though and was even a tad bit productive. Life has been crazy lately. Lots of the women congratulating me to me face but hating behind my back. They feel threatened by me now that I am a size 6. Did I say size 6? Yes I did. All I wanted was to be in a 10 but I surpassed that by miles. My parents aren't doing well right now. Dad just had another surgery and they found 3 more tumors in various places in Mom so we are taking that day by day. I am overall pretty happy with my new life as a thin person but at times it can be trying and annoying. I am getting used to it though. I did threaten at 1 point to gain it all back though because too many men were hanging around. Some just plain lost their minds. I hope that everyone is doing well. I miss you all. Love you!!

Happy Tuesday everyone! Needless to say, I have been feeling so emotional lately. My step mother's granddaughter is dying from Leukemia. She is 17 and cannot handle another round of chemo. She cannot have a bone marrow transplant until she is in remission.....which cannot happen without more chemo. It is a no win situation. She has been sent home to finish out her life with her wonderful family. It is just an awful, tragic situation. I know I cannot do anything more than pray for her and her family, but I still feel as if I need to do more.
My brother in law (who is only 35) had a heart attack, apparently his second. He is doing well. He has made many changes with his diet, so that is good....but still stressful.

I hope you are all doing well. Thank you for giving me a place to vent and grieve, I really do appreciate it, more than you know!

Hi everyone, I am doing great. I am sorry I have not been posting more. I was sick the last week or so, so I am getting back on track. I have not worked out in the last week but i am planning on doing so tomorrow. Hope everyone is doing well. I will try to post more. Maybe we can have some sort of challenge or something. I miss hearing from you all.

Happy Super Bowl Sunday everyone! I just want to take a minute to apologize for not being present here. I started student teaching full time last month and will finally graduate in May. It does take a lot of time and energy and so Spark seems to be what has been pushed aside for now. I have also not been taking care of me so much. I have great plans.....but my follow through is lacking.
In any case, I will still be checking in and will eventually get back on track! I hope you all are well! Please let me know if there is ever anything I can do for you! emoticon

Hi, I know it has been forever since I have posted but been super busy and super motivated. I am DONE!!! For real! I reached my goal emoticon . I have lost 80 pounds!! My goal was 140 but I just slipped right by it. I can't believe it that the moment is finally here. I screamed when the scale stopped at 138.4. I hope that all of you are doing well and remember anything is possible. I just proved it!!

Amber - great job on losing weight over the holidays. That is so hard to do! 40 lbs is doable by July and I know you can do it.

Hope everyone is well!

Hi everyone, I am back. My computer died and I ended up having to buy a new one. I hope everyone had a great christmas and a happy new year. I managed to loose 5 pounds over the course of the holiday. I think part of it was due to being sick right before chirstmas. My 10 year high school reunion is this summer so my goal is to loos at least 40 pounds by July which is doable for me. I will post more often . I missed you all. hope you all are doing great.

Hey everyone. It's been a while since I have been on here. Needed a bit of a break. Hope everyone had great holiday!

I have started a weight loss challenge with my cousins so I am back at it again. Started eating healthy and exercising again. My goal is to lose 15 lbs by April which should be doable for me. What are everyone else's goals?

Jump rope is quite a workout! I have even heard of people just jumping without a rope and having the same effect.

Today I went to the gym and ran/walked for 30min. I am thinking of buying a jump rope for the days I can't hit the gym. You can burn the same amount of calories jump roping as running a 8min mile so that's motivation for me since I can't run a 8min mile!

I was just thinking about changing the team goals for the new year and would like some input. Is there anything specific you all would track here? Fitness minutes? Posting in the discussion area daily? Please let me know either here or in a private message. I know we all live busy lives but I would love to see this group re-spark like we used to.

Any suggestions?

Hi all,
I hope everyone is doing well. It has been awfully quiet around here lately. I know how busy this time of year is for everyone. Today is my last day of class for the semester. Then I start student teaching in January which will last until the beginning of May.....then graduation! WooHoo!
Anyway, I hope you all have a great week and wonderful holiday!

Hi all!
It sure has been slow around here. I hope it is just because people have been busy and not that anyone has decided that SP is not worth the time.
I watched the Biggest Loser where are they now episode. Did anyone of you? It is kinda nice to see that even those people struggle. Weight loss is difficult and is work and something you cannot just achieve and then not worry about again. It is a life long challenge.
Anyway, I hope you all have a great Thanksgiving! Enjoy the food and time with those you love!

Hello my friends! Life is so good I can't believe its mine!!! I have lost 66.2 pounds now. Awesome. I have a wonderful boyfriend! Even better. He treats me great and loves my dogs. He does have 2 kids and a very crazy ex-wife and is also 7 years younger than I am but he makes crazy happy. His kids are 3 (girl) and 1 1/2 (boy) and the cutest ever. I have not been around kids much, never even baby sat so it is an experience. I love them though and they love me and I haven't dropped one yet so I feel things are going well. I hope you are all doing good.

Good evening friends!
So I have not weighing myself lately- probably have not for over 2 months. I knew it was bad and ready did not want to see it. I decided to take the plunge and weighed myself yesterday. Yes, I have gained some weight back and I am not happy about it. While I am not actively doing anything to remedy the problem, I am making a plan. Yes, my life is crazy- full time school, part time job, and a family to boot provides me with little time to take care of myself. The problem is that I have put other activities ahead of myself......things that are really not important.
My plan is not set yet and I plan on sharing it with all of you and hope to get some support and encouragement from all of my friends here on Spark people. I know what it takes to be successful at losing weight, getting strong, and being healthy. I have been thinking that I would do this in May, after I graduate. The problem is that I could potentially be back to where I originally started (at 250 pounds) if I do not do something now! I cannot wait until May, I will not wait until New Years, I will start now.
I hope you are all doing well and feeling great about yourselves!!
Thanks Chelle for the birthday wishes, I do appreciate it!

Good afternoon ladies,
I just wanted to pop in and thank you all for the Birthday wishes. I had a nice day. I worked, got my nails done, watched my oldest play football (AND he was invited by the coach to dress out on the Varsity team! he is only a Freshman!) Tim cooked a nice dinner and I got lots of flowers from some of my students. It really was a wonderful, blessed day!

I hope you all have a great weekend! I am taking my nephew out for his 21st birthday! I am determined to have fun!
God Bless!

Kat - only 3? No big deal right? I hope you are remembering to take a minute for yourself somewhere in there so as not to drive yourself crazy. Take care of you so you can keep taking care of others!

Way to go! That is awesome! I wish I could say the same, but I have not been doing so well lately. It is because I am honestly SO busy with work, full time school, my two kids, and my hubby.....I have not had the time to exercise. I have also not been eating well, and I really have no excuse for that, just poor choices. I hope it will get a bit better after next week when I will be finished with 1 of my classes. Then I will only be taking (yeah, I said "only") 3 classes.
Have a great weekend everyone!

Good afternoon everyone!
Chelle, I hear you about the struggle- I have been for about a year but refuse to give up. I know once I graduate I will have more time to take care of me- but having 4 classes, 155 hours of observation on top of that, a part time job, and my family.....yeah.
Anyway, I hope you all have a great week!
Kathy

Hello, Ladies!!!
I'm so glad I"m not the only one who isn't checking in as regularly as I could! SORRY!!!!

Jowanna - That's awesome! Congratulations on your success, and on saving some lives in the process!!!! LOVE IT!

Kat - how exciting! Love the pic!
you've crossed over 50lbs lost!!! WAY TO GO!!! You ROCK, girl!!!

Amber - What a wonderful thing to do! Great cause, and good for you for doing a 5K! (Did I mention that I Love you in pink?)

I've started up as an Avon Rep. It's been interesting, I'm pretty excited about it, and trying not to just buy, buy, buy! I've always looked to Avon because they don't test on animals (which I've avoided since I was 17 as best I can) But, I never thought much about actually selling it... but here I am!
(Posted a blog.. if you're interested.. with a link to my site)

I'll try and keep you posted.. but for now, it's something new and fun to do. Let's just hope I can make a little extra coin for my purse with it!!!

Trying to get back on track.
Honestly, I've been struggling since around last November.. which is going on a whole year now. Since my thyroid went under-active, and I developed the neuropathy, I've only been consistent in small fits and stutters.
But, I'm seriously going to try a do-over.. and back to basics at this point.

Don't know why this particular struggle has been so difficult and SOOOOO Long. *Ugh* Way off that wagon!
Time to saddle back up!

Kat - that is awesome to get to meet them. I watched some of BL on my lunch break tonight and will watch the rest of it on DVR when I get home. I don't know what I would do without that thing - I guess miss all my favorite shows, right? But anyway it was probably a very motivating experience and maybe a bit of a kick in the pants? I know a new season is always a motivator for me. Also, emoticon on losing over 50 pounds. I think that is probably the best feeling I have felt in a long time. 20 more to go and I am there!!!

160! That is wonderful! I am so very proud of you!!

It seems that many of us have been struggling with checking in- it is okay! As I was logging in this evening I was thinking about how SP and this group are like old friends; we do not need to talk to each other often to know that we are thought of and cared about. At least that is how I feel about all of you!
I have been busy with work, school, and family. I just cannot wait to be finished with school so I can start living a bit more that I am now. I know it is all worth it- I completely believe that. School is just a long and sometimes difficult road.
The good news is that I have basically maintained my weight- sitting right around 200. It is not where I want to be, but it is where I am and it is better than weighing 250 pounds like I used to. Yes, I am looking to be positive and appreciative of how much I have done.
By the way- I was able to meet Daniel and Rebecca from the Biggest Loser a few weeks ago. They were in Longmont which was surprising to me! It was so cool to meet them and talk with them. Yes, Rebecca has gained weight back, but she still feels good about where she is and did not plan on maintaining the weight she was when she won the at home player. She said- "This was to win money. It is not maintainable in the real world and I am okay with that. If I never wear my size 6 jeans again, that is okay." It was nice to know that she is not killing herself trying to maintain something that is not maintainable.
I hope you all are well and enjoying life! Have a great week!
P.S. I will post my picture with them on my page if you are interested!

Hello, my fab friends. It is a wonderful day!! I am finally at 160.4!!! That is 58 pounds Done and I am totally excited. I seems that it goes so slowly and then along comes stress and bye bye weight. So I guess thanks to all the stress in my life I only have 20 pounds to go. Thats not really true, not eating meat has been a great help, my digestive system works so much better now that I feel like a different person. I hope that everyone is doing well!! Love you all!!

Morning, Ladies! (yes I'm up at the crack of dawn on a Saturday!)

Jowanna - So glad the veggie life is suiting you! I find that if you establish a relationship at a local health food store, you can move mountains! They're usually very helpful... it's great that they would order things for you! Now THAT is helpful! The only thing you should be aware of is B12. My friend that went vegetarian the same time I started (I've since, as you know gone back to fish and fowl) which is now 19 years ago, was just NOW diagnosed with a B12 deficiency. So I guess it took that long. LOL!!!

Congratulations on your great success on living non-violent with your fork!
And on your great strides for your health!!!

Kat- I know for teachers the beginning of the school year is even more difficult than it is for the kids! HA! I'm sure you will come through with flying colors! You're doing what you love.. and enthusiasm for what you do and passion, and belief in your calling will make you one of the best teachers out there! You AND Amber!!!

Amber - 6lbs! WOOOHOOOO!!!! congratulations! Oh, and did I fail to mention that I love you in that hot pink in your profile pic? Gorgeous!

I'm heading off today for the Life Is Good Charity festival in Canton, Mass. I have three friends to pick up before the 4 hour drive to Boston, then check into the hotel downtown, and catch a shuttle to the festival.
Should be a LOT of fun! I'm hoping I can leave my anxieties at the door and just have a fantastic time!
I'm not even Packed yet and I have to leave in about an hour. LOL!
Anyway, it should be easy enough. It's only 2 days, and one night away. So no worries.

I feel badly I've been rather absent, I keep getting disconnected from the thread, and I've also been in a bad headspace. I'm fighting my way back out of the dark hole and back onto the track.

Hope you are all well and enjoying EVERYTHING!!!!
