I already posted this blog in the hi rise apartments but I just had to post this in saying goodbye to 220ville for the last & final time! I got on the scale & it read 219 lbs. so I guess it's time to move on down the road! emoticon I called the moving van & they will be here any time now. I never did make it to the lobby. That's ok because my bags were packed a few days ago. As I'm looking around this empty apartment it's mixed emotion. emoticon I've been in this ville off & on for about 2 1/2 years. It's like I'm leaving part of me but I'm so happy to leave because I feel so depressed in this ville. It's not to bad in 210ville but 200ville is the turning point for me where I finally start to look & feel better about myself! emoticon I have 10 lbs. to go before my self esteem comes back. I never thought I would move out in a little less than a month. I'm so happy about that! I know using the food tracker helped. I hope by next year at this time I can read this blog from 170ville. What a happy thought! emoticon That will be 40 more lbs. to lose! emoticon I know it gets harder the more you lose. I know I can do it if I don't take any more detours. I promise I will never come back to this ville! Here comes the moving van. emoticon I am shutting the door now forever on 220ville! Arrivederci 220ville emoticon emoticon emoticon

I couldn't wait till Saturday to weigh in. I'm growing so impatient! I started using the food tracker. No more eye balling my portions of food. It's ok to do it a little but not for all that you eat. Plus the fact that you don't realize how fast the calories add up during the day. Anyway, I'm moving down to the 1st floor. For how long I don't know? My weight has been emoticon & emoticon like a ping pong ball ever since I moved to this ville. For all I know I might be up to 226lbs. again tomorrow. I'm going to try & be optimistic. emoticon I'm putting my apartment up for sale. I can finally see the lobby clearly. I already have my emoticon packed & called the moving van to make arrangements. I moved in on 4/23. I would have loved to get out of here in a month but it doesn't look like that will happen. Maybe if I really watch what I eat I can move on down the road by the end of next week. That would make me so happy! emoticon These last two lbs. are going to seem like an eternity! emoticon

Started out good yesterday then in the afternoon I went out with my DH. I pigged out. Beer, canned mixed nuts & the list went on & on! emoticon emoticon emoticon I'm afraid to see the damage. I am going to wait till Saturday to weigh myself. Hopefully I will be back to 226 lbs. then I won't feel so discouraged. It's bad enough when I'm still dealing with being in this ville that gets me so depressed but to have the scale go up because of my own stupidity is even worse! emoticon Oh. well I'm back on track this morning. It's hard to get back on track once you slip up like I did for two days. I have to be very careful & it will be hard for the next two days till I can back into the diet mode but I know I can do it. I am going to wait till Saturday to post. I'm going to take a break for a few days! I am going to spend some time getting the camper cleaned & ready for the summer season. Maybe that will help me to take my focus off of slipping up so terribly. I almost forgot to mention. emoticon I did start to use the food tracker from spark. It has been eons ago since I used it. The only problem is I start out good in the morning tracking my food my lunch or supper I'm to busy & forget. I really have to do something about that.

Wow 4 days can make a difference! emoticon emoticon I really haven't been counting calories. Just eye balling my portions. The bad news is the scale read 226 lbs. this morning. I've been eating a lot of ham, cabbage, & green bean casserole. The beans & cabbage is fine but way to much ham even if it is jennie-o 98% fat free. Ok! I refuse to get discouraged. Today even if it is time consuming I'm going to use the calorie counter from spark till I get in the habit of eating about 1200 calories a day!

I'm finally moving on down to the 2nd floor. I started to pack! emoticon It's been slow going. I hope I can get out here by the end of May. I know that is pushing it but I will try! Another lb. & I'm going to put my apartment up for sell. I hope I NEVER, EVER, come back to this ville. I hope I can be reading this blog from 180 or 170ville by next yr. at this time
.
Update on Cocoa: emoticon The vet took blood work & it's not to bad. Since I was having a hard time with him eating I assumed he was in 4th stage of kidney failure. He's not their yet so maybe we can have a little more good quality of time with him for the summer before he goes down hill. We decided not to let him suffer so once his quality starts to go down we will let him cross over to doggy heaven. He's been such a good dog he deserves that much from us!

I couldn't wait till Friday. I weighed myself this morning & I'm back down to 223 lbs. I sure hope the scale does not go up again. I just want to see the scale go emoticon even if it is at a emoticon pace. I wish I could just knock off these 4 lbs. I guess I just have to be patient. emoticon I think I mentioned that my dog Cocoa has CKF. It's only a matter of time. Some dogs can live up to 1 1/2 yrs with it. He was diagnosed in Jan. but the urine tests are bad. Today we have to take him over the vets for another urine test. He is only 8 yrs. old & it's breaking my heart knowing that he might not be around by the end of summer. The last two weeks he his become a real picky eater. This dog would eat anything that looked like food. Trying to lose weight & be healthy & dealing with a terminally ill dog is hard. emoticon emoticon

I was afraid to get on the scale this morning. I had to work & when I came home my DH had a stuffed chicken & bacon slice of pizza for me. I had a crappy salad for supper so I ate the whole slice. It was a very big slice. emoticon The bad news is when I went on the internet to see the calories this morning it was anywhere from 500 calories to 800 calories for that slice! emoticon oh well! I blew it! The damage is done. On a positive note I am going to be working the rest of this week.(3 days) I think if I stay on my diet the extra calories from working should balance everything out. I am not going to weigh myself till Friday because I really don't want to get myself depressed if the scale goes up. emoticon emoticon emoticon

Well the bad news is the scale went up to 224 lbs. this morning. emoticon I guess I won't start to pack any time soon.I tried to be careful yesterday. I did indulge in saltine crackers, turkey pepperoni & a piece of string cheese. I think if the scale doesn't start dropping at a decent pace the next thing is to start counting all my calories. I know it's time consuming but that is the only way I will be able to tell if I'm eating a little to many calories or it is my metabolism that slowed down to a emoticon pace. I'm trying to be positive but it's hard. I'm dealing with some other issues. One is that my dog cocoa has CKF. His kidney's are failing & he's only 8 yrs. old. To watch him go down hill each week is so sad! emoticon I doubt it very much if he will be around till the end of the summer. I'm trying to keep focused till I can get out of this ville. emoticon emoticon

The scale hasn't moved in 4 days. Finally am moving down to the 3rd floor. I'm finally starting to see the lobby in a distance. One more lb. & I'm going to start packing. Then I will put my apartment up for rent. I did good for mother's day. I truthfully didn't think the scale would be down at all. If it stayed the same I would have been happy. Anyway I have another obstacle to deal with today. My BIL is visiting & we are going out for lunch today. The only thing on the menu that is remotely diet food is a chicken salad. I was thinking if I bring my own fat free dressing & try to not eat all the shredded cheese in the salad maybe the scale will stay the same tomorrow. I hope this is the last obstacle for a while. It is much easier to stick with a diet when you have control each day. To be quite honest it's hard enough sticking to your diet some days even without these obstacles! I will check in tomorrow & post how everything went! emoticon emoticon emoticon

OK, today is Saturday. My weight is still 224 lbs. I'm happy that I didn't gain. Tomorrow is going to be hard. Tomorrow is mother's day & I overheard my DD making plans for making me a meal tonight. I have to try & not go to much over my calorie range for the day. I can see the lobby in the far distance. I don't want to blow it now! As I've said a million times before this is one ville that makes me feel so depressed. emoticon I have to get out of this ville ASAP.I hope the scale doesn't go emoticon by Monday because of mother's day. If it does I will have to try my best to get the scale headed in the right direction. emoticon Call it a slight detour but I must try not to let it get me down! emoticon emoticon

I'm moving on down to the 4th floor. I wasn't going to post a weight loss because I usually weigh in 1st thing in the morning. Today I didn't which I think threw my weight off a little. I think I'm going to wait till Saturday to weigh myself & see if I am still at 224 lbs. I think if I stick with my diet I will be still at 224 lbs. I hate to get on that scale & see a weight gain. Right now it's to depressing for me! emoticon even if it is only temporary weight gain. I have to work today & tomorrow so I don't think I am going to post till Saturday! emoticon emoticon

I'm so happy to report that the scale is down again. I'm moving down to the 5th floor. 225 lbs. Half way point. emoticon As I mentioned before I'm not going to get to excited because tomorrow the scale could be up to 228. It seems my weight has been up & down like a ping pong ball in this ville. That is so depressing. emoticon For the last few days this is the 1st time that the scale has been going emoticon at a consistent pace. One happy thought is now that I'm half way through this ville even if the weight goes up because of water retention I won't be in 230ville. I wish the scale was closer to 221 lbs. but I know I just have to be patient. emoticon Another happy thought is two more lbs. & I will start to see the lobby in a distance. I will be able to start packing then. That will defiantly put a emoticon on my face. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

I'm happy to report that I'm moving down to the 6th floor today. I know it is only a lb. but at least the scale is finally going down even if it is slow going. emoticon At least I'm not at the top floors where it is so easy to slip back to 230ville. I have 7 lbs. to go to get out of this ville & it's going to seem like an eternity. I want to get out of this ville so bad I can taste it. I just have to keep pushing & be patient emoticon till that day comes! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

I almost forgot that for the zillionth time it seems, today I have a weight loss of 50 lbs. Ten more lbs. (216) I will be at my half way point!

The scale moved down to 227 lbs. this morning. I'm not going to get to excited because the scale could be back up to 229 lbs. tomorrow. I'm just taking one day at a time. I didn't have pretzels before bed time. I'm going to see if this helps bring the scale down. It's so nice when the scale is going in one direction emoticon but when your weight is going up & down like ping pong ball it is so hard. It's depressing. emoticon Especially when you are trying to get out of a villle that makes you feel so depressed. I don't know what it is about 230 &220ville that makes me feel so down but I do feel so down in these two villes. I think it has to do with the way I look & the way my clothes fit me! emoticon emoticon I can only emoticon till I'm finally out of here. I'm going to be very happy when that day comes.

Ok, the scale is up 1 lb. Still holding at 229 lbs. It's been over a week now I'm getting concerned. When I'm dieting I always have a snack before bed. It helps me for some reason stick to my diet. I started eating 22 pretzel nibs before bed. I thought I was doing good because instead on eating out of the bag I counted them out. WRONG! Because the weight isn't moving I am going to reevaluate the situation why the scale isn't going emoticon I didn't realize that 22 small little nips is a whopping 176 extra calories I'm eating. emoticon I guess I'm going to have to be more careful on counting my calories. I'm going to stop the pretzels for now. Perhaps in a few weeks eating them only once or twice a week & only eating 15. I do like dry cereal. It's better than eating chips etc. I used to eat fiber one cereal as a snack when I lost a lot of weight last year. It's only 60 calories & your getting a lot of fiber as a bonus. I'm going to measure the cereal & start eating that as a snack. Also I have to be more careful on what I'm putting in my mouth at all times!

I am so surprised. emoticon what the emoticon read this morning. I got right back on track yesterday & did good on my diet. I did go with out with my DH & had a couple of light beers. I made sure I did cut my calories for lunch. I didn't want to go over my calorie range for the day. I would go out with my DH once or twice a week last year when I was losing all that weight. It didn't seem to hurt my diet as long as I cut some calories for one of my other meals. It seems for me to stick with my diet I really need to get out once a week to socialize. I thought the scale would be up to at least 231 lbs. this morning when I weighed myself to see the damage I did from election day. The scale read 229 lbs. emoticon so I am still in 220ville. I am so happy about that. emoticon Now I have to focus on going down the floors. I would really like to get down to the 7th or 6th floor so I'm not teetering on the top floor. It's so easy to slip back into 230ville when your on the top 2 floors. My next small goal is to get down to 227 lbs. ASAP. emoticon emoticon

I had a big set back. Big for me because it undermines my work I'm trying to do plus the fact I already feel down because of packing on all this weight from last July. 1st the scale was up over the weekend because of water gain then yesterday was election. I work at the polls & it's a long day. The workers bring all kind of goodies emoticon emoticon emoticon need I say more. I DID GOOD ALL DAY THEN AT THE END OF THE NIGHT I PIGGED OUT! I had fudge, donuts, several packs of of crackers. emoticon emoticon emoticon OK the damage is done but guess what? The good news, I'm back on track this morning. I will wait till tomorrow to see the damage. I know between water gain & pigging out last night it will put me back in 230ville. That is still ok because I'm staying in this ville & try ASAP to lose any extra weight I have put on. Just because of a set back I can't stay away from the scale. That scale is one of the only things that will hold me accountable & help me lose this weight!

Today is my 9th day back on track. The scale went up over the weekend even though I watched my diet. That was so depressing for me emoticon because I am trying to get back to 210ville ASAP. I did have some water retention. I'm assuming it's water retention. Tomorrow is election & I work at the poles. It's a very long day for me(16hrs). The bad news is they are bringing all kinds of goodies. Donuts, candy, pizza etc. emoticon emoticon I don't want to go back to 230ville. When your on the 9th floor of a ville your teetering on the edge. It's so easy to go back to your old ville if your not careful. Sometimes I do gain some water weight which puts me back in my old ville. It's depressing but if I am watching my diet usually within a week things start to balance out & the scale starts going down emoticon again. Before you know it I'm down to the 7th floor. I hope this works for me this time because I refuse to back to 230ville. One of my spark buddies told me if I am super strict on myself these 30 lbs. will come off quickly & I will be back in Onederland. Being super strict means I have to start weighting & measuring everything. I have to try to stay on the lower end of my calorie intake. Now the question is, will my body cooperate? I am so mad at myself for gaining these 30 lbs. back. I know because of my age it's only a matter of time before my metabolism slows down to a crawl. emoticon I am very worried about this. emoticon & with good reason. Last year at this time when I got back on track I had a real hard time at 1st losing the weight. I was so scared then. You think I wouldn't have learned a lesson! I guess I'm a slow learner. I am promising myself this time if I can have one last chance at getting this weight down before this happens I will never leave Onederland again. If I don't get this last chance I'm going to be extremely depressed. I will try to deal with it the best I could. I will watch my diet & march down these villes as fast or as slow as my body permits me to. Enough of rambling on for now. emoticon

I'm officially back. The scale read 229 lbs. this morning. I was in 230ville for only 7 days. That has to be the fastest I ever moved out of a ville when starting at the top floor. I tend to lose a lot of weight (mostly water ) for the 1st two weeks when I get back on track. Even if it is mostly water weight I'm losing I'll still take the loss! emoticon I'm so happy to be back here & not in 230 or 240ville but when I look in the mirror it still gets me down! emoticon I really need to get out of here ASAP!
I'm hoping if my body will cooperate to be out of here by the end of May. I don't know if that is doable with losing so much weight in the last week. I know it's only a matter of time that my weight loss will slow down or even stop for a week or two. I guess my body will need time to play catch up. I just have to be patient emoticon And most important not to get depressed. I will just emoticon and do whatever it takes to move on down the road to 210ville ASAP. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Day 5 & I'm doing well. I have 3 more lbs. to lose to get back here. I'm starting to get excited. It feels so nice to be back on track & see the weight going down. emoticon I was starting to feel like a stuffed pig. emoticon I know that doesn't sound nice to say but it's the truth. I feel I must be honest with myself if I want to lose this weight & become healthier! I was getting out of breathe going up the stairs etc. My clothes were getting so tight that I knew if a gained a few more lbs. I would have to go to the next size(18w).When I look in the mirror emoticon I feel so depressed! I know I'm just starting out again but these last few days I do feel much better. emoticon Another 15 lbs. & I won't feel so depressed looking in the mirror even though I have a long way to go. emoticon emoticon

Day 4- Back on track. As I've said before I lose a lot of weight the 1st two weeks. Most of the weight loss is water. I now have 4 more lbs. till I can officially move back in. It might take 2 more weeks but I'm going to keep pushing till I move back in. emoticon emoticon

Well , as of today I'm officially back on track. The bad news is I have 12 lbs. to lose before I can get back to this ville. I am going to try real hard to get back ASAP. The good news is at least I'm back on track & trying my best to start losing weight again. I will post here at least once a week till I can return. emoticon emoticon

Well, I've been off my diet since I posted. I got on the scale & I no long belong here. The scale went up. I decided to set a date to go back on track to hold myself accountable. The date is on Saturday(April 16, 2016) This will give me a few days. I want to go shopping on Thursday & get some healthy food. I want to plan a little in advance on things I would like to cook that are healthy. Also I really need a little more time for soul searching. This doesn't mean I will pig emoticon out till then. I don't want the scale to go up another 10 lbs. I have enough to lose before I can get back to this ville.I really want to get it right this time. On Saturday I will weigh in & whatever ville I must join I will do so. I hope it won't take to long to get back to this ville & then go on from their. I will check in here once or twice a week to post my progress.

The scale read 220 lbs. this morning. I am so happy. emoticon I have my emoticon packed & I am so ready to move back down to 210ville. Spring is two months away. At least by the beginning of April I hopefully can be in 200ville where I won't feel so self conscious. emoticon Around 205 lbs. is where I seem to have more self esteem. My clothes fit better plus I start physically feeling much better! emoticon I also hope by the end of round BLC#30 (May 4th) I can be back in Onederland. Some of the things I write are repetitive but I use these villes as a weight loss journal. These villes have helped me tremendously. I am sitting in the lobby. emoticon Now the waiting game begins! I hope I can move out of here in a few days! emoticon emoticon

Two more days have gone & the scale was emoticon 2 more lbs. It read 221 lbs. Two more lbs. & I can leave here. I hope by the end of next week I can move on to 210ville. I promised myself I will never say I will be back. I am hoping once I get back to Onederland,199 lbs. that will be enough incentive so I won't come back. I hope by the beginning of April I can be back to Onederland where I was the beginning of July(2015). My stay in Onederland in July only lasted for 4 days. emoticon Oh well! Maybe this time when I enter Onederland I will stay this time. The nice thing about getting back to Onederland is that I will be a decent weight for summer. I know I will still have a way to go once I enter Onederland but at least I will fit into some of my clothes & won't look to bad. I tend to feel very self conscious on the way I look when my weight goes over 209 lbs. emoticon emoticon

It's been only 2 days & I'm moving down to the 4th floor! Thanks to starting the BLC#30. I am on a new team, Spicy Sparkologists. I love the team. They don't push you. They let you do things your way. If you don't lose the weight in 15 weeks it is totally your fault. When I 1st get back on track I usually lose a few pounds of water weight. The weight usually drops fast the 1st 2 weeks. I will be so happy when I can at least get back to 210ville. I hope 2016 will be the last year I will be in the 200 villes. One of my goals is to get back to 190ville this year & stay permanently in the (one) villes. No more 200 plus villes! emoticon emoticon

Today we started our BLC#30. I am on a new team Spicy Sparkologists. I really like it. You can work at your own pace. Their thing is one size does not fit all. I really like that. Anyway I had to weigh in. The scale read 229 pounds I have 30 pounds to lose to get back to Onederland. Oh well, at least I'm officially back in 220ville now. They changed the BLC rounds from 12 weeks to 15 weeks. I don't know if I can do it but I really would like to see Onederland by the end of this round! emoticon emoticon I am going to try my best & see what happens. Maybe by next month I can leave here & get back into 210ville! emoticon

I'm trying to climb out of this hole I dug. I only have myself to blame. I am afraid to get on the scale because for all I know I might belong in 230ville or 240ville. emoticon I think I will get on the scale 1st thing tomorrow. If I weigh more than 229 I have to decide if I want to stay here in this ville till I lose the weight or move to 230 or 240ville.

I'm back as of yesterday for the millionth time! emoticon I wasn't even going to come back to these villes but in reality it's the only thing that holds me accountable. After some reflection it seems very time I go off track & start bingeing I also stop weighing myself daily. That is a real bad thing for me because getting on that scale very day holds me accountable! I am going to weigh myself each day from now on whether I like what the scale reads or not! I weighed myself 1st thing this morning to get a exact reading. My weight fluctuates so much during the day that is the only way I can get a proper reading. I'm happy to say I'm moving down to the 2nd. floor! Three more lbs. & I can get back to 210ville. My short term goals are to get back to 210ville, then back to 200ville (209 lbs.) where I will feel & look much better. emoticon It is surprising that putting on an extra 20 lbs. can physically put a toll on your body. The next goal will be to get back to Onederland. It's hard to believe I packed on an extra 25 lbs. since July! emoticon It's going to be very hard & slow going because Bdays, Thanksgiving & Christmas are right around the corner! I believe that if I keep focused & keep my motivation up I can do it. It would be so nice to begin the new yr. (2016)back in Onederland. Only time will tell. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Still here. Went up slightly today. Oh well. I had a really quick drop though, and I've been eating healthy, so hopefully I won't stay long.

I have a cold going on that's pretty annoying. I slept a lot today. The rest of me is still pretty weak, but at least my mind wants to be doing things now.

Still hopeful to leave for good soon though.

Awesome job and emoticon I am down another pound today so moving into the third floor. But I have been moving up and down these same floors for months. I am determined to get past the plateau and move on out of town. Hopefully we will both move on out of town soon!! My goal is to be out of here by May, so I have two more weeks to get these 3 pounds good and gone!

Been stuck in 220-ville too long!! I made a brief trip to 210-ville a few weeks ago, but keep ending back in 220-ville. Big plateau for me between 224-220. I am going to have to work hard this month to break free!! Come on swim suit weather!! I love swimming laps.

Wow! the day has finally arrived. The scale read 219 lbs. this morning. As I have mentioned several times before it means a lot to me to get out of 230 & 220ville. I've only been in these two villes for 1 1/2 yrs. I did manage to slip into 210ville for a short time a yr. ago. It really is time for me to move on down the road. I am locking the door behind me & never coming back. I am so happy today that I'm leaving this place forever! The time to say goodbye to 220ville has arrived! I am looking out the lobby window & here comes my moving van. What a beautiful sight! emoticon Bye 220ville! emoticon Wishing all that come after me good luck in your weight loss journey. Arrivederci 220ville! emoticon emoticon emoticon

emoticon Leslie, I hope or should I say I know I will see you soon in 210ville. The warmer weather is right around the corner & the weight will start coming off by leaps & emoticon emoticon bounds!

emoticon Leslie. how are things going? I'm just hanging around down in the lobby looking out the window! It might take a few days or maybe a few weeks till the moving van comes. I've tried to be careful with sodium. I could gain 4 to 5 lbs. like nothing with water gain if I'm not careful. I just want out of here so much I can taste it!!

I think I can! I was just looking at the calendar & we have exactly one week left in March. I was hoping to get into 210ville by then. Even though spring is officially here it's been so cold. I know the warmer weather is right around the corner. It will be time to shed those winter coats & hoddies. I am trying to lose as much weight as I can before that happens. I feel very self conscious the way I look now. I know once I lose another 6 to 8 lbs. I will feel much better about my appearance. I know that might sound a little vain but how we look & feel has a lot to do with how well we lose the weight!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon

I wish I could say the time has come but I have to wait a little longer. emoticon I got on the scale this morning & it read 220 lbs. So I guess I'm moving to the lobby. I finished packing all my things & cleaned out the apartment. As I looked around the empty apartment their was a hint of sadness because I have been living in 230 ville & 220ville for so long now. I know it's time to move on down the road because my body keeps reminding me the longer I procrastinate in losing this weight, the harder & longer it will take me to see my goals. My next goal once I move into 210ville will be 216 lbs. That is my half way point. then 200ville. From their one of my biggest goals, Onederland. emoticon To be honest I really don't know the last time I weighed under 200 lbs. May twenty yrs. ago? I really haven't given it much thought what my goals will be once I'm under 200 lbs. One thing I do know once I lose another 30 to 40 lbs. I would like to start a exercise routine to tone my body. I'm sure I will really need it by then. I don't think I will ever get rid of any loose skin but that's the price I must pay for letting myself get so big. emoticon I just sold my apartment so I have to remain in the lobby till I can call the moving van. This last lb. to lose is going to seem like an eternity! emoticon

I thought it might be April 1st April fools day! emoticon I got on the scale this morning & it read 218 lbs. emoticon I knew something was wrong! I guess I didn't step on the scale evenly. If you don't, it throws my scale off. Maybe for Christmas this yr. I will treat myself to a new scale. I will admit 218 lbs. looked so, so, nice even if it was for only for a brief moment! Anyway, the scale was down a lb. Weighed in at 221 lbs. this morning. The next move is the lobby then I'm out of here for good. Their are times I drop 2 lbs. at a time.(that's not happening to much any more). Boy, would that be nice to drop to 219 lbs. I would skip the lobby & move right into 210ville. emoticon Another thought that seemed so nice is that we have 8 days left till April. It would be so nice to be out of here by then. I truly don't think my body will co-operate. I think it's time to put my apartment up for sale. As I mentioned I started packing my emoticon Now the wait begins. emoticon I will try my best to be patient. I will keep moving & make good emoticon food choices. Hopefully, very soon it will all come together & I will be able to say goodbye to 220ville for the last & final time! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

I'm down another lb. The scale read 222 this morning. I know I shouldn't get to excited because tomorrow the scale could be emoticon 3 lbs. You know how that goes! The fact still remains I am excited. emoticon As I've said several times these two villes(220 & 230) ville drag me down. I feel so depressed in these villes. I don't know if it's because I've been living in them for around 1 1/2 yrs. but whatever the reason I am so ready to leave here & never return. I have 3 lbs. to go & that could take three weeks or more! emoticon My body doesn't co-operate sometimes or I should say most of the time! I've been down to visit the lobby & started making arrangements for putting my apartment up for sale. As I 've said before I'm not putting my apartment up for rent but selling it because I have no intentions on coming back!! emoticon I started packing my emoticon so when the time does come I will be ready to move on. I guess now it's a waiting emoticon game. I will try my best to be patient. I will keep moving & make good emoticon food choices. Eventually (hoping very soon) it will all come together & I will be able to say goodbye to 220ville for the last & final time! I am going to be so happy when that day comes! emoticon emoticon emoticon

Way to go! And thank you for the saying..good thing for me to remember before eating junk. Haven't been doing very well the last couple days....need to get back on track as I don't want to head out of 220_vile the wrong direction...never want to see 230_s again.
Keep up the great job ...Back.on track today but afraid to see what the scale says now.

I was scared to get on the scale this morning because those 3 lbs. I finally lost after 2 weeks might return. emoticon I was a happy camper. emoticon The scale stayed at 223 lbs. I'm starting to see the lobby in a distance & my next ville. It might take another 3 or 4 weeks to move into 210ville. Who knows but you have know idea how happy I will be when I move out of here! emoticon . I can't wait to get out of this ville & move on down the road. I've been living in this ville off & on for about 1 1/2 years now & it's time to move on down the road, PERMENTLY! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Finally after 16 days the scale dropped below 226 lbs. I'm not going to get too excited because tomorrow it might be right back up again. I look for things that motivate me & I just read something so simple but it is just what I needed to hear." Keep moving and make good food choices. Eventually it will all come together." That is what I'm going to do. This really made me stop & think. Even if the scale isn't moving as long as you know in your heart you are trying your best it will come together eventually. It took 2 wks. for the scale to start dropping. Just think if I wasn't patient & didn't preserver I might have gone right back to 230ville again. emoticon Wow, does that make you emoticon and think! emoticon It is so easy when the scale isn't moving to say the heck with it & go back to your old ways. A couple of chips here, some sweets their & before you can sneeze your back to 230ville where you tried so hard to leave. emoticon I promised myself I am not going back to a ville once I leave! As I said before the weight is coming off very slowly this time since I've been back on track. That has put such a scare in me that I made a promise to myself that once I leave a ville I will not return. I have spent the last year & a half between 230ville & 220ville. I am so ready to leave this ville you can't even imagine. One of my short term goals is to reach 210ville by the middle of April at the latest. I hope my body will co-operate! emoticon emoticon

emoticon Leslie, I hope things are going good for you on your weigh lose journey.

Way to go on getting back to 226! Don't worry about the past...keep moving forward.
I had a bad day yesterday...gave in and had a bunch of junk food...pop, chocolate, Wendy's....ooops. Back on track today. Am a little over a pound behind you...hopefully that will come off soon. Haven't been to the gym this week ... I usually go first thing in the morning but guess I haven't been able to adjust to daylight savings time yet....getting up at 6:15 right now just seems wrong. Doesn't help that I have come down with a cold...my first in over a year. Hopefully I can kick that soon....will eat better and maybe that will help.

Have a great day and keep up the good work! emoticon

Just checking in. The scale is finally down to where I started 12 days ago. I'm back down to 226 lbs. So that means I haven't lost any weight in 12 days! emoticon No wonder why people get so discouraged when trying to lose weight. So if I'm real careful maybe I can start marching down these floors to the next ville.
Hi emoticon Leslie. How are things going for you?
