Last week, I slacked on drinking my water and getting in my workout routines. This is why I maintained instead of losing. Oh well!! Off to another week! I'm focusing on staying strong and doing what I know is right. emoticon

Still going strong and staying away from the junk food. I'm almost through week #4 and I'm actually really proud of myself. This is HUGE for me turning down soooo many temptations. Yesterday, after my sons basketball game they had soft pretzels. I looooooove soft fresh pretzels, but I stayed away. I didn't even have a nibble on one. Then tonight at work, my co-worker ordered a pizza and I was offered slices from a guest. It smelled soooooo delicious, but I stayed strong. I'm really going to see how long I could keep this streak going. I'm just really impressed because I really struggled to start this personal challenge.

emoticon Hope your doing well and I'm sending you some Sunshine!! emoticon

emoticon Today makes Day #21 on my clean eating streak. I'm sooooo excited because I actually didn't even have my chocolate covered strawberries my husband bought. I will be eating all the other fruits on the arrangement he bought for me. My kids Maya & Alex are excited to eat the strawberries. He also cooked me breakfast, lunch & dinner since he knew I didn't want to go to a crowded restaurant with their salty food. He kept it nice & simple, which is exactly how I like it.

While at work, they had many little chocolate hearts that tempted me all night. I kept telling myself that it just wasn't worth it.

I haven't worked out the last 2 days and I'm wondering if I should take another day off today. I'll see how I'm feeling once I get home. I probably should force myself to get something in especailly since weigh in day is right around the corner on Monday. I need to stop being lazy!!

I feel amazing because I've been keeping the junk out of my system. Hopefully I will see a 2 pound loss I've been waiting on for the last 2 weeks.

How are you all doing?

Yesterday I took advantage of the kids not having any after school activities. I stayed in bed for as long as I possibly could. I'm soo thankful that my kids are at the age where they aren't as needy. They could do things on their own without having to wake me up. My son has a basketball game Friday, Saturday & Sunday this week. We are thinking these are his last couple of game and then he goes back to karate. As long as we keep him busy!

Yesterday was a lazy day hanging out with family, eating healthy, getting in my workout and getting things done around the house. Today I woke up and made an Egg white omelet with onions, tomatoes and spinach with a side of oatmeal. It can't out sooooo good! I gotta make it for the family. I am about to change to get in my workout for the day. I gotta get moving before the day goes by. I have a small window before I have to run around with the kids.

My week #3 is going amazingly well and I am learning to be creative with my meals. Since my nutritional restrictions, I miss certain foods but still enjoying my meals.

Michelle, My son Alex fell out of bed once and actually curled up and fell right back to sleep. It was actually the funniest thing ever, lol. Does Gavin fall out of his bed often? Were you able to keep your entire day healthy? I haven't had Tilapia in a very long time. How was it made?

Yesterday was another awesome day with keeping my nutrition in line and getting in a double workout. Weigh in day wasn't as good as I wanted it to be, but I am a pound down. I saw 165. My trainer has told me that it takes 21 days for your body to adjust to change. So, I'm hoping next week, I will see better results and at least see 2 pounds gone. We also did measurements and I'm down in my hips and waste. What else can I ask for? We also tested my body fat levels and I'm down 2% body fat, which is AWESOME!! I'm sooooo excited about that. Strength training is definitely paying off.

Awesome day for you yesterday!

No wii time last night but today I got off early my am job so I got in 10 min mma and 10 wii golds gym dance. Better then nothing. About to go make a salad and have some left over tilapia Phil made yesterday.

Gavin fell outta bed once last night tgen I woke him by accident this morning. I covered him up and shut his door so I can get a quick shower. Guess I'm going to have to start getting them at night so I don't do that again. Luckily he went back to sleep but in our bed lol.

Better get him a bite to eat before heading out again. Talk to you later! Here's to another great day!

Michelle, that's great that your feeling better already. Were you able to play on the Wii as you planned? Good Luck getting in your workout in the morning! I just know that Gavin will get it together for you.

Today, I used as a rest day with my exercise. I kept my nutrition in line and logged every single bite. I packed 3 meals to bring to work to finish off my day. Tonight I have Baked Turkey Breast, Quinoa & mixed veggies. I'm about to heat some up shortly to prevent myself from snacking. After tonight I only have Monday night until my days off. I'm looking forward to just chilling and relaxing, but of course I have a meeting on Tuesday and then an eye appointment on Wednesday. It kind of forces me to get out of the house to get things done. I also need to look for a dress to wear to my BIL's wedding next month.

Glad to hear you did so well today!! I'm feeling much much better today. So happy too. I'm at my friends waiting on Anna to finish eating then home for the night. I would like to play alittle wii if Gavin will let me. Plan to get everything ready for tomorrow too so I don't have to run around like a nut in the AM. I would like to actually work out in the morning.

Gavin peed a few times today. He knows what to do he just chooses not to.

Today was totally a good day and I'm soooo happy that I was able to keep myself under control. I felt like snacking and eating foods that I know my body just doesn't like. I'm trying to come to grips that my body just doesn't like certain foods. I'm hoping the longer I fight to keep myself away from them, the easier it will become. Does it get easier? Who know!!

I even told my husband that I can't go out to dinner for Valentine's Day. I just can't eat out until I get myself to the right place. I know if I eat something that's not on my plan, I will sprial out of control. Plus, my body will spike up in weight. I have fought through these last couple weeks and I don't want to ruin all my efforts. We are going to make it into a family fun day.

Michelle, emoticon to almost being done with school. What are your plans when your done? I do hope you figure out your financial aid situation. My daughter is about to head into High School, so my head is starting to spin about that thought. My husband says I'm worrying too early.

I totally know how your feeling with snacking. I work right next to snacks all night that totally call my name. I had to just stop myself one night and I've started my clean eating streak. Monday will make 2 weeks and I'm proud to say that. I do remember that statement from the Biggest Loser and I have kept that in my head ever since. I workout every day with rest days here and there and I want to look as hard as I exercise. Right now, my body just doesn't look as athletic as I feel.

I say take the meds to help you feel better. You have to do too much to suffer through a cold without some kind of relief. How are you feeling today?

Sounds like a fun plan you have with Gavin. Good luck with potty training, I totally remember those days. With my son, once I knew he was ready I just put him in underwears. I wanted him to feel the wet and that got him to fully use the toilet. He totally didn't like being wet.

You are doing so great D!! Way to go my friend!!

School is just moving along. I have a few more weeks and then my math class starts. May 5th will be here before I know it. I can't wait to be done with school. Today I got an email stating my tuition was due which means they messed up yet again on my financial aid and I have to find time to go to the school to find out what else I have to do to get this resolved. I'm so glad this is my last semester!! The financial aid is a pain in the rump.

As for my workouts they are null and void so far but I am eating much better. My problem is when I get home from my second job and need to cook dinner. While I'm cooking I am snacking on bad snacks. I see it and when I eat it I know it but I still eat it. Someone on the Biggest Loser said "if you don't change your eating habits it doesn't matter how much you workout......you won't get anywhere without fixing the eating too" I wasn't to excited about this season but I watched it on the weekend. I'm not feeling like much today. My nose won't stop running and my head feels like it blew up in there. I may have an ear infection cuz one of my ears is bothering me too. I wonder if I can get rid of it without meds.

We are heading out soon to pick up some poster board and a butt load of stickers for Gavin's potty/poopy board. I also want to make a board up for his bedtime routine with more stickers when we do each one. He plays a game that he gets a prize like a sticker to put on a board (they call it a trophy). Gonna try because I really want him to be done with these diapers. I am aiming for one more box and that is all.

Here's to a new week and better habits forming!! Have a great day D!!!

Back to my motivated self!! I kept my nutrition on track and got in my insanity workout. Feeling positive and ready to take on another day. WOW, I can't believe that I've made it to Day #10 and sooo happy that I'm making progress. I know I'll start seeing results through my consistency I'm trying not to stress too much over no loss this past weigh in. This journey is going to have their ups and downs and I have to deal with them.

Hope you all are doing well! emoticon

Yesterday's weigh in didn't go as planned, but I stayed strong. Normally, I would of had a cheat day after a bad weigh in, but I fought through it. I am still going strong and determined to make strides. I am still on a roll with my clean eating steak.

I am waking up this morning and realizing that I do not have any knee pains or just body aches. It's amazing how quickly my body is telling me that it's loving my healthy lifestyle. I am only putting in foods that are good for me and this is extremely motivating. I know right from wrong and there is no tricking my body. I just need to continue doing what's rights. Today will be an awesome day!

To make Day#4 successful, I made 3 different proteins. Chicken, Turkey & Shrimp to help get me through the week. I have to keep things cooked to but grab the wrong foods. It also keeps my family eating healthy, which is the overall goal as well. I have my log book that helps to keep me accountable. Writing here and blogging more also helps me to stay motivated. Hope you all are doing well! emoticon

Day #2, was a huge success! I got in all 6 small meals and started Day #1 of Insanity. Shaun T really kicked my butt, but I loved it, lol. I am totally feeling it in my shoulders and hamstrings this morning. I am going to push through and complete day #2. Once my body gets warmed up my muscles well loosen up.

Day #1: Today was a good day and I'm proud to say that I got in my workout and kept my nutrition on track. I just looooove the way i'm feeling. I have sooooo much energy and I don't know why I even fall off track. I don't like the way I feel when I'm eating the wrong foods that I love. I LOOOOOOOVE FOOD, but I need to stick to the healthy foods only. I have a list of foods that I can eat and I'm pushing myself to stick to only those foods.

Hope you all are doing well!!

emoticon to Gavin with his potty training. I know you can't wait until he's fully trained. I totally don't miss those days.

emoticon with getting in your workout!! Sounds like your getting into a routine again.

Today I forced myself to get in my workout. I got in a jog/walk on the treadmill with more jogging than walking. It feels amazing to get back on track and feel yourself getting stronger and stronger. My nutrition has been all over the place and today will make Day #2 with staying on track. I have to get it together to lose this weight. I've been seeing the same numbers too many times on the scale.

HAPPY MONDAY to you all!! emoticon

Well I woke up early today but procrastinated until 10 this morning to workout. Got in Day 2 and 3 of Jessica Smiths #FITIN15. I'm still a day behind so maybe I can get day 4 in today and be caught back up or tomorrow get two in.......

Gavin and I made mini pancake muffins. Some had chocolate chips, nutella, grape or strawberry jelly. They were all a hit but he likes the chocolate chips best. LOL We are going to go to my SIL's mom's bday dinner in a few hrs. Hope they have a salad so I don't fill up on bad foods. We are going to leave early too because today is grocery day.

Gavie has been doing really good with potty training esp if I can keep his undies on. He HATES to be wet. LOL

Hope you have a good day today. I need to finish getting ready for the day.

I had to work today and now I'm at the library with Gavin. He loves it here.

My book for school was delivered yesterday. I got my reading done already and now I have 2 questions to do and find something ethical in the news. I have til Sinday to get it done.

I didn't end up working out yesterday or this morning but I'm still looking forward to one after church tonight. I don't like hurrying Sunday morning so that leaves Sat nights. He's not really cooperating now so we'll see what happens.

I weighed in today but gonna see what tomorrow says. I couldn't have lost 1.4# with hardly working out.......gotta find Gavie have a good day

How did everything workout for you yesterday?

I have been doing amazing with the exercise. My nutrition on the other hand isn't going very well. I've lost all self control and it's actually driving me CRAZY. You would think through my frustrations I would just eat right, but that's not happening. My weight is totally winning right now, but I'm still fighting.

I'm going to be heading home shorly and I can't wait to head to bed. The family has a 2 hour delay heading to school, so I will be able to see them before heading off.

Got in a 15 min moderate intensity workout this morning. I wish I didn't have to work. I enjoy waking up around 8 and having a cup of joe then finally get a workout in before the little man wakes up. Since that isn't possible I enjoyed my morning off. I'm off now to get a bite to eat.

Goals for this month:
1) Eat breakfast (however small) - main goal
2) workout 15 min minimum
3) drink more water
4) work on tracking food

I'm off to finish up the laundry and wash the dishes. I already have my uniform ready for my afternoon job. Have a wonderful day today!!

Great job D! What a wonderful feeling that is for you! emoticon emoticon emoticon

I was hoping to be upstairs in 10 min so I will wake up on time for a workout in the morning. It doesn't look like Gavin is even close to going to bed. I don't get it either since he didn't get a nap either. hmmmmm

Didn't workout out as much as I hoped for last week but I did watch my food and stopped eating by 8. I'm down .8# and I'm ok with that. Here's to a new week and a new plan. I'm off to try again to get Gavin changed.....he has been refusing and fighting tooth and nail to change for bed. He was doing real good with going potty to around Christmas but now he is refusing to go now too. I just don't get it......I just keep hoping tomorrow will be better. I also start school again tomorrow. LAST SEMESTER AND I'M DONE!!!

Night D!! Have a great evening!!

I have finally reached one of my fitness milestone. I jogged for 3 miles straight without stopping. It took me 45 minutes, which I am soooo proud of. I am soooooo excited and amazed.

Last night I snacked on Cashews, was that a bad choice? I had 2 cap fulls, which was probably what made it too much. This morning I had greek yogurt, strawberries and granola with granola cereal with Almond Milk. I plan on eating every 3 hours. Since I started eating at 10 my lady meal well be at 10 if I am still awake, lol. The key is starting full and eating the right foods.

Mmmm, your pork chop dinner sounded delicious. Your daughter cracks me up, lol. What didn't she enjoy with dinner? What are your 2 jobs again?

I have fully been back on track for the last 5 days and I still have the temptation to munch. I have been grabbing the right foods/snacks. I looove baby carrots. I am off today and need to get changed to get in my workout. I have just been chilling with the dog.

I got out of work early today. I wanted to call off but didn't and should have I only worked 1.5 hrs. I made a woppin $16 today!! To bad I have to go to my second job at 1230 :( It's so cold I do not like this cold weather. I can't stay warm.

Last night I made a pork and rice casserole. Pork chops, rice, diced tomato, green pepper, onion, and a packet of pork gravy. I liked it but Anna was like I don't know if I like it. Tonight is orange chicken in the crock pot. I guess I better go and get the chicken out to thaw a bit before going to work.

I hope you have a great day today!!

Sounds like you totally have everything planned out. You are totally a typical mother who has to be organized in order to get through the day. Us Mom's are always on the go until the kids go to sleep. WTG with staying on track. We also got snow yesterday, but it didn't really do much damage. Except we had a lot of plain delays.

This week I cooked, Turkey, Chicken Breast and Salmon with some brown rice & quinoa. I buy frozen Birdseye veggies, which are delicious. I'm trying to see how long everything lasts so I don't have to keep cooking and always have food available. NO EXCUSES!!! emoticon

My bed is soooo calling my name and I can't wait to head home. My shift is almost done and I hope the lady coming in behind me is on time. Fingers crossed!!

It's a slow start but I'm not giving in. Today we got snow and I went out and shoveled the front but that is all I got in today. In an hour it's bedtime......I read 2-4 books to Gavin then we go to sleep. I usually fall asleep waiting for him to fall asleep LOL Tomorrow I only work my morning job so I will get a workout tomorrow for sure. I'll also be outside with Gavin for a short time then to the library with him and after that dinner. So looks like a crock pot meal it is. I love Wednesday's.....it's mommy Gavie day!!

Glad you are on track again....you are doing emoticon !! What do you cook ahead? How is your job going?

Michelle, you know I'm happy to have you back. It looks like you didn't do too much damage while you were gone. WTG with maintaining the 140's!!! emoticon I know getting back on track isn't always easy.

My last weigh in I was at 168 and hoping for a good weigh in later on today. My goal is to drop 2 pounds a week. I know I can do it if I just stay on track as I should be. I have made all my meals for the next couple of days and will see how long they last. It's about time that I am back on track and it feels good.

I have decided to get back to it so here I am once again. I will have more time to get online since this is my last semester and the classes will be online. I still have both my part time jobs which I will be keeping for awhile. I need to pay off some bills again. It's never ending.

Sorry I have been away. I just couldn't get online to much going on with the kids, two jobs, and school. It was a bit much. I have two classes left. One starts 1/12 and ends 5/5 and the other class starts 3/5-5/5. Then I'm DONE!!!

Not sure if the scale I was using was accurate so I bought a new scale and my beginning weight is 148.8 now. This morning I got in a workout and I am planning to get another in tomorrow morning before work. Here's to a great year!

Tonight I am a little sad because I am but seeing the results on the scale as I had hoped for. No matter how good I am, I feel add though my body does what ever it wants. This journey is sooooo hard and I wish it was just over. I keep second guessing if I would ever reach my goal. I feel like crying because it's soooo hard.

Today I jogged my first ever 3k and it felt amazing. It took me 45 minutes. I feel so much stronger after being with my trainer since February. Alison has done so much for my health and I really thank her for investing in me. I have to make her proud and stay on track to see a loss. She's the little birdie on my shoulder keeping me in line.

I'm actually really proud of myself this week. I have had soooo many temptations and haven't had any at all. I have a meal plan and I'm trying to stick to it as much as I possibly can. I've also been getting in my workout routines. With this combonation should result in a loss on Monday. This is all that I think about these days, which is helping me stay on track. I wish this journey came easier for me, but it's really hard. Every week, I just want to get closer and closer to my goal weight of 139.

Tonight I have a headache that just won't go away. I've been trying to eat my meals as planned and took a break from exercise yesterday. Today is a new day because I plan on getting in my workout once I get home. This way I don't have to worry about it throughout the day. I just pray that my headache allows me to accomplish what I want.

I have these snacks particularly Oreo cookies that are calling my name. They right at arms reach, but I'm trying soooo hard to fight it. I finished an apple as my snack and just ate one of my meals. I shouldn't be hungry, but I am. This journey is nothing but a mind game and my mind is playing tricks on me right now.

Excited to report that I'm another 2 pounds down today. I have finally seen 162 and I'm soooo close to getting out of the 160's. Lately I feel as though I make this journey a lot harder than what it needs to be. My job right now is to stay away from junk and eat healthy. I have a meal plan and I just need to stick to it. Through consistency, I automatically see results. I feel sooo much better when I eat right and get in my workouts. It's extremely motivating to see results and progress. I have only 23 more pounds to go to reach my goal weight. emoticon

I find myself covering someones break eating Oreo. For some reason these are my new addiction while at work. I will get past this just like I did any other challenge in this journey. I just pray this doesn't affect my weigh in on Monday. A little frustrated with myself, but I will get over it quickly. emoticon

This week I'm feeling strong and praying to continue through weigh in day. I've been weighing and measuring out everything as I should. I've been eating as I should be and not starving myself. I've also decreased the amount I've been exercising in hopes to also help with my progress. I heard, if you exercise too much and not eat enough my body could go into starvation mode. My body is soooo sensative and I didn't realize how much until I joined this weight loss journey.

How are you guys doing?

Today was weigh in day and I have finally seen 164 on the scale after 2 weeks. I'm excited that what ever was making my body hold onto my weight is finally over. I just need to continue watching what I put into my mouth to see another loss next week. Wish me luck!! I really didn't feel like exercising today, but I forced myself to get in a walk/jog. I was happy I got moving after I was finished and that helped me to then sleep like a baby before I had to head into work.

Today I guessed at my portion sizes, which I'm usually not very good with. I've been sneaking halloween candy and I'm only hurting myself by doing it. I had 6 mini snickers bars, which came out to around 250 calories. Was it worth it? Absolutely not! Tomorrow is a new day to stay away from the candy and to get right back on track with what I know is right. Hope you all are doing well.

Weigh in on Monday was not what I had expected. I was excellent throughout the entire week and the scale refused to move. I guess I can't expect to see a loss every week. Oh well!! I'm still a fighter and determined to get in my exercise minutes and stay in my range. I know the scale isn't everything, but it's definitely motiving to see a change in a positive way. I feel as though I'm thinking too hard about this journey. It's no longer fun for me because I want to be at my goal weight soooo badly. I've just been at this for too long.

I do hope your doing well!

It's my fault that I step on the scale every morning because today I am frustrated. My weight hasn't moved since Monday and I dint know why. I have been on track except for today when I had a couple cookies. That shouldn't affect me, but knowing my body I would skew a gain in the morning. Alright, I am done venting and still going for a loss on Monday for my weigh in. Cross your fingers for me.

It's great that you aren't beating yourself up too much for eating a little bit too much. All you can do is move forward and out seems line that's what you are doing. By chance, what's your first name? Mine is Dedrie.

Since yesterday was a lazy day for me with getting in no exercise, today I made it a point to get something in. I did a nice 30 min walk on my treadmill and my Charlene Extreme DVD to get in some strength work. Since I have to work tonight, I am about to head to take a nap.

I went to a baby shower today and did not make wise food choices. This is disappointing because I have been doing so good this week. I have made a lot of progress and days like this can send me down hill fast. I am not going to worry about it too much. I will going to drink my water and plan my exercise for tomorrow. My very close friend showed me some exercises she does with her personal trainer and I can't do most of the stuff she showed me. So I am going to do some of that stuff tomorrow and build up my strength.

DTONEY76 thanks for stopping by my page. I am still fighting this fight daily!!!

I had another great nutritional and fitness day to report, which makes me feel good. There are some chocolate chip cookies and oreos in the house that I totally want to eat. I've been hanging in there and pray that I stay strong. Once I have one then it turns into too many. You know how that goes.

Today I looked at myself in the mirror and I totally still have a long way to go. I want to keep thinking of my goals, but I also need to just continue to focus on each week. I have 3 more days before my next weigh in and I'm praying for 2 pounds gone. I need to keep myself under control, which isn't easy all the time. That means 163 on Monday afternoon! I've been staying on track, but my body does as it wants.

Work is still going well because I'm staying out of peoples business. I come into work, do what's asked and leave. I'm trying to keep my life stress free and not take on other peoples problems.

I do hope your doing well!!

Running the 5k really felt amazing because I wasn't totally exhausted afterwards. I love the feeling with getting stronger with my routine. That's what keeps me going each day. Seeing some kind of progress makes me feel motivated. I just want my body to look the way I workout. One day! Is what I keep telling myself.

I'm definitely heading in the right direction and saw 165 today. Another pound down, which is awesome. My trainer wants me to cut out wheat products, which is going to be sooo difficult. I'm determine to try it to see how my body reacts. Hopefully, I will see 2 pounds gone for next weigh in on Monday.

I'm heading to my BF's today for lunch and I'm thinking of cooking some Salmon or something that I could eat. I need or really want to stay on track this week. I'm not even going to have my popcorn that I loooove and have problems staying away from. Wish me luck!

I never made it to NY because I decided to sleep, sleep and sleep some more. I was actually able to get 8 hours of sleep for the first time in 1 1/2 months. I woke up feeling extremely energized. My body needed the rest and I'm soooo thankful that my family is sooooo amazing to let me sleep. The only thing I heard was the doorbell ring when my kids friends wanted them to play.

I'm a little disappointed because all week my scale refused to move in the right direction. I weigh in at around 2pm with my trainer and I pray that I have some kind of a loss. I'll take anything to stay motivated. I totally ate healthy except for probably too much popcorn. I also need to get back on track with eating every 3 hours and preparing my meals. During these late night hours, I've only been eating once when I should be eating at lest 2 meals. Also, before I go to bed I should only be having a protein & veggies. I've been having too many carbs heading to bed. I'm hoping to get back on track once I make these adjustments.

Yesterday, I had another successful day and was able to get tons of sleep. I stayed in my calorie range and got in my workout. It feels good to be able to keep myself on track. Tonight for dinner I made mashed sweet potato, salmon and broccoli for dinner. The kids gobbled it up line it was the best thing they had in a long time, lol. It feels good that they eat anything I put on the table, healthy our not.

Tomorrow, I want to surprise my Mother and drive into NY when I get off of work. Hubby will drive, which will give me time to sleep. Then once we get there, I would go straight to bed in my old room when I was growing up. Then the kids can enjoy some time with their cousin and Grandmother.

Hope your doing well and getting in some kind of a workout!

I still need to log my meals, but I feel as though I ate to little. I just ate and now all of a sudden I have a headache. Not sure where this came from, but I hope it goes just as fast as it came. My night can't go by any quicker tonight.

I just realized I am almost at my half way point for this journey. I am at 25 pounds lost and I have 27 more pounds to go to reach my goal. It has taken me 8 months to lose the first 25, so I'm predicting better for the 2nd half, LOL. At least I hope my efforts are better because as you know I was stuck in the 170's for just waaaaaaay too long. I'm on a 5 week challenge that ends on November 10th to reach 159. I'm praying that I could keep myself under control and in check to accomplish my goal. There are just sooooo many temptations. Right now I have snickers & cheese cake calling my name and all I have to do is reach my hand out to get them. I think I'm going to move them from out of my site. Thank goodness I drank a protein shake before heading into work, so I'm pretty full. Plus I have an apple, pear and oatmeal that I will eat at around 3am. Hopefully, that holds me over.

These are my issues on why I can't lose weight. Too many temptations that drive me crazy. I need to stay strong and it's just hard. Portion control doesn't always work for, which is why I try to just stay away.

I'm counting down my time to get of at 7am.

emoticon I saw 166 this morning, which gave me a 1 pound loss. I'm excited to see the scale move in the right direction again. I'm trying my hardest to stay on track this week and get in my workouts. Last week, I had 3 cheat meals which didn't do me any good. I was just offered some spaghetti and meat sauce, but kindly declined. Temptations are always around me! My goal is to see 2 or more pounds gone, but I have to be really strict with what I eat.

I hate scales because mine bounced too and I never understand why. I like it when it goes down though, lol. My weigh in is on Monday's when I wake up in the afternoon. I am hoping for a loss because I have been bad more than 1 day this week. I don't know what I was thinking of, but I am not going to let it get to me.

Tonight I am tired because I didn't take my 3 hour nap before coming to work. I have to lay back down from 6-9p in order to not get tired during my shift. Plus, Sunday's aren't too busy with 2 people working.

My weigh in yesterday was good. I say I stayed the same. My scale isn't the best so it's really just a guess. First I saw 144 and was stoked....moved it six times and saw the same thing. Put my nightgown on and it said 145 I was still happy but then I took it off and it said 145 still. Today I saw 146 but I started today too so it will be off.

Today wasn't the best but I didn't do to bad. I had a few pumpkin oreo cookies today and a strawberry shortcake roll......it's just that time of the month where I want all sweets. Plus is I'm out of cookies now :0) Tonight I've been munching on cold grapes.

How'd your weigh in go or do you weigh in on Monday's now?

My day didn't start off the best with a bagel with sausage, egg and cheese. It just had too many carbs, sodium and fat. I at least burned it off with my workout and stayed on track for the rest of the day. Praying for a good weigh in even if I have been off track for some meals.

Was your weigh in day today? How did you do?

You certainly do have a lot going on. Can you every just stop? Good Luck with finding a new job and I totally hope that someone calls you back sooner than later. I totally understand why you are soo nice to Anna's boyfriend. It really shows your kind heart towards people.

I got in my workout and even though I ate a lot of carbs still feel that I've stayed in my calorie range. Not sure though since I didn't log my meals. I'm currently at work and during down time I just finished watching the show, "How to get away with murder" Have you watched it?

I have to pick her boyfriend because he doesn't have a license and his mom doesn't take him anywhere. I feel for him I don't think he is very happy there. He has been grounded again for not doing chores before coming over so Anna won't see him again til Wednesday. We invited him to come over to do pumpkins and his mom said no. She doesn't let him do much at all. When he is here he is a good kid. I know that is normal but he's a kid they screw up. Anna has it made compared to him LOL

Didn't get a workout in other then today I got a walk. My neck has been hurting now for 5 days however tonight it is feeling much better. I paid all the bills today and both my tests are over. I figured it had something to do with stress. Guess we will see if I gained or stayed the same tomorrow. I have been stressed out all week and I'm a stress gainer. I know I have kept my eating in check though. I know a few times was hard but I walked away and was happy too.

You shouldn't feel guilty. You have been doing awesome and you aren't over indulging. I am a firm believer that you shouldn't deprive yourself of alittle of what you want. I'm sure you will see 165 soon.

I am trying to get another job. I had an interview Thursday and a phone Tuesday evening. I hadn't heard from him yet so I'm still hopeful he will call tomorrow. The hours are horrible but doable and the pay isn't wonderful but I will get experience in the medical field which is what I want. I am going to take over a thank you follow up letter to them tomorrow. If I get it then I want to get a person to help me figure out my calories and calorie burn to meet. I want to lose and tone and am not sure what workouts to do. I'm going to see how I feel tomorrow and if I'm all better then I will get my workout in first thing. I also want to get some yard work done.

Talk to you soon. Hope work is going well for you!!

Yesterday, I had McD's for dinner and for some reason I do not feel guilty. Should I? I am drinking tons of water in hopes to flush out my system and will definitely get in my workout today. I had an eye appointment and then slept all day on and off. I guess my body just needed a break. I have to make my next couple days count to make sure that I have a good weigh in on Monday. My goal is to see 165!! Wish me luck!!

Hope your doing well!

Why do you have to pick up Anna's boyfriend? Is that something I have to get use too, lol.

I got in my workout today and stayed in my range. Hubby bought me a chicken sandwich for dinner, which I grabbed half of it for work tonight to eat. I am eating small meals again, so I can only eat half of it at a time. Portion control really makes food last longer, lol.

How was your workout? Hopefully your neck didn't give you any problems.

Never did get my workout in yesterday. On the plus side I got a 90% on my Business midterm. I am very happy with that too. It was a toughy. I got all 4 of my essays right too!! Talk about excited when she handed them back yesterday. Today and tomorrow I will need to study for my Psychology test. I'm going to do my best that is for sure. I kinda skipped it so I could concentrate on the midterm in Business.

Today I am studying and picking up Anna's boyfriend. I wish I didn't have to but I told her I would and he doesn't have a phone to call him or txt him new plans. Now to figure out what to make for dinner and I am about to get in my workout. I have a sore neck today so I hope it doesn't bother it to much.

have a great day today!!

WTG on starting focused and getting in your workout. Through consistency, you will start to see results again.

I achieved my 167 goal yesterday for my weigh in, which feels amazing. Now my new goal is 165 for next weigh in. My body is on a roll with weight loss and I am hoping I could get or of the 160's by November 10th. That's a 5 week personal challenge to myself! Wish me luck.

I still need to get in my workout, which I will once I pick up my son from school. Today he has an after school club, then homework and then soccer practice.

How was your day?

Thanks. I am done work early today. Not excited about it either. I hate getting up early to go in for something that could have waited for tomorrow. Today I only filed, moved files to a box, and matched receipts to Visa Bill......OMG!!! There was no mail yesterday because of Columbus day. Tomorrow should be busier I hope. Anyway.......

I wanted to let you know about 9pm I got in my day two of my SI6 start it up. I knew if I didn't do it I wasn't going to because it just kept getting later and later. So proud of myself. Eating I can't tell you how I did. And today I skipped breakfast so I'm going with a brunch soon of some oatmeal. :0)

Plan for today is to do SI6 Ramp it up after my interview and then reading my Psyc chapter through the day before class. Let me know how your weigh in goes today!!

Good luck on your job hunt , sounds like the search is going well. It's great to have options to choose from.

Today was an day, I got in my workout, had a nice juicy burger as my cheat meal, got a surprise visit from my sister & niece, my daughter win her soccer game 4-0, feel asleep on the couch and now heading to bed. Such a fun night with family, what else can I ask for. Hopefully the scale doesn't reflect my meal in the morning.

Oh, I forgot to tell you? I saw 167 on the scale today for my weigh in day. I am sooooooo excited and now totally waiting to see 165 next Monday. I just know I would be back on track in the morning. emoticon

I'm not sure what it is either about the biggest loser but it isn't on my must watch anymore. I don't care much either who goes home either. I just hope it gets better.

Didn't do to bad yesterday but today I was all over the place cuz I've been running all over the place today. I have an interview tomorrow after work at a Chiropractor's office. It is only part time in the afternoons I think. If the pay is the same or better I may take it but I don't know yet. I have a resume going out tomorrow too that I am sorta hopeful for. It is a full time doctor's office position. I'll let you know how it goes tomorrow.

Yesterday I got in 25 min of my Slim in 6 workout. Today I mowed 1/2 the yard and ran out of oil so I had to stop. I'm very sleepy now so I'm about to go and get my workout in now before I skip it. Talk to you soon

Tonight I weighed in before getting ready for work and I can't wait for my official weigh in tomorrow afternoon. I just hope I don't ruin it because we both know how easy that could be. I brought a salad to work and I am sipping on some tea, plus I nudge try to get in a workout before my trainer comes at 2p. That depends on how tired I am.

To be honest, I'm not feeling either of the 2 new trainers. They both are trying to hard in my eyes. Your right, I'm soo waiting to see more of Bob. I actually miss Jillian!! Too bad things didn't work out to have her on the show still. I just don't care at this point who goes home and the episodes seem to go by soooo quickly. There is something different with the format of the show that I'm not enjoying.

I got in my workout today and I still need to plug in my calories to see how I did. I think I did alright because I didn't eat crazily. How did you do today?

I'm not a Jesse fan to me he tries to be better then Bob and he's so not. I like Jenn though. I like her better then Jillian actually. I miss Bob though. I was so bummed they only show him a few clilps during the hour. Hopefully it will be better when he comes back to the main house with his Biggest Loser from Come Back Canyon.

WTG on your wall with Gavin! So sorry that things aren't going well at work. I am a sure hard believer that everything happens for a reason. I know that everything will work out for you and I hope you find something new really soon.

Hubby doesn't know, but I also want a morning job. I just need to act on it to bring in some extra money and pay off done bills.

Today was an alright day and happy to of gotten in my workout and sleep.

Evening D. I hope your day is going well. Mine was pretty good overall. I am job searching again. I'm still working at the same place but I just don't like going to work and having to ask for things to do the whole time I'm there. Today was my breaking point.....they asked me to step out of the office so they can discuss a private matter. They should have gotten up and went outside instead of me.....just my opinion. So I went out in the shop and waited to go back in. I thought I could hang with it since the pay and hours were good. I just wish I could work more hours like he says I should be. I wish I could have my own room then I may not feel as bad. I go into work and she looks at me and just starts working again no hi morning nothing. I'm a people person and she is not.....well she doesn't talk to me near how she talks to some of the guys there. I just am going to cut my losses and move on. Today I put in 4 resumes for local companies and tomorrow I need to mail out one and then Monday after work I'm going straight to a company to drop off my resume and hope for a quick interview. The pay is great and it's not to far but it isn't medical. I would be using my first degree though. I just have to soul search and pray for my answer. Enough of that......

Today I took Gavin for a 1.3 mile walk in 30 min and then danced to my Wii Just Dance for 15 min. I would have danced longer but Gavin thought it was to much fun to bump into me and I was afraid one of us was going to get hurt.....so I stopped. I'm going to need to track my food that I remember I ate too. Didn't get much water in today. :0(

I LOVE MY ELECTRIC BLANKET!!!!

WTG with being in a walk today. The Fire House sounded like fun and I am glad that Gavin had a wonderful time. Hopefully he sleeps through the night.

I got in my workout, helped my baby with good homework, washed my hair and got in a nap before heading into work. It feels good to be able to get everything accomplished. Then to have to do it all again in the morning.

Hope you slept well with your electric blanket. :)

Today was our local Fire station open house so we walked there instead of driving. That is the only real workout I got today. It is better then nothing at all for sure. I pushed Gavin in his small stroller and swirved a lot to miss big bumps and made it fun for him too. He was laughing. He had a ball at the station tonight. He was very upset to leave though. So bad that I put him to bed at 830pm by driving him down the road. He was so tired and so upset he passed out. Bad thing is he may wake up with night terrors since he went to bed upset. That is a norm for him. Hasn't happened for quite some time so fingers crossed......

I didn't do to bad with my eating I don't think anyway. I didn't track it. First get to moving then I'll add the tracking in. Plan is to wake up early tomorrow just not sure if I am going to study or workout. Depends on what time I crawl outta bed.......I have broke down and put my electric blanket on and boy is it nice and cozy in the AM.

Have a great night and I'll talk to you tomorrow!! Thanks for being there for me my friend!! Off to bed I go before hubby catches me LOL

Michelle, you can do it! If I can buckle down so can you girl. I actually just watched a video about putting your foot down and just do what we know is right. Are you tired of being unhealthy? When you are, you would get back on track. No Excuses! I am here for you. emoticon emoticon

Today so far is an awesome eating day and hoping for it to continue to the end. I have a lot of running around on Wednesday's, so trying to get sleep, keep everyone happy and get in my workout is a challenge. Determined to make it work.

We can do this Michelle!!

Great job D!!! Keep up the awesome work!!!

I'm not doing so well on my journey. I am trying.....I'm not giving up on me either. I just give in and then I procrastinate until it is to late. I need to get refocused and fast. I know school is part of it but I realized that when I don't do what I want and push the little voice out I am using excuses. I need to quit it and fast. I truly want to eat better and workout regularly but it is soooo easy not to.

Last night I had a 1/2 C cooked spag with plain sauce and 1/2 grilled chicken breast for dinner. Today I skipped breakfast and had a pc of Tyson chicken and a banana for lunch. We are heading out soon to the park for a play date. I need to get in a workout after and study for my midterm tomorrow.

You are totally my inspiration now. I'll be back later tonight to post what I did or didn't do. Accountability is what I need now to get going. Better go before we are late. Talk to you soon!!

Today was another great day because I got in my workout, stayed in my range, spent time with my kids and now I am at work. What else can I ask for? I am hoping for a good weigh in next Monday to help keep me motivated to keep going. These 160's aren't going to kick my A** like the 170's did. emoticon

Hope your were able to get back in to take a nap yesterday. Did you get in a workout?

Yesterday, I had an awesome weigh in because I lost my 2 pounds and made it into the 160's. I am finally out of the 170's and I am soooooo excited. I need to get in my workout today once I am done checking in. I know I need to keep moving to keep seeing results. I am hoping the 160's aren't as tough for me. I know I just need to keep my eating under control. I can do this!

I need some more sleep. I woke up today really tired. Gavin woke up twice once I got up and the second he crawled in bed with us. I don't sleep to well when he is in our bed. I'm afraid he will fall off I think.

How are things going for you? I hope work is going well too!! We will be off to pick Anna up from school soon. I need to study more today for midterms. Luckily my one class fell behind schedule so now that class is next week instead of Thursday. Tomorrow is a review for my Mgt class's exam. She said she will be going over some of the questions on the test and she will be giving us 8 essays but we only have to do 4 and we will be going over them tomorrow too. I really enjoy this kind of study LOL Is it cold there? It is cold here. I had to turn the furnace on yesterday because it was 60 in the house. Poor Gavie's legs were freezing.

Have a great day!! I'll be back later to let you know I got in some sort of workout.

I just finished my workout and I really hope it pays off come weigh in day. I saw 171 last week Monday and want to so see 169. 2 pounds is totally doable in a week, but I have to stay on track. I had a day of eating bad this week, other than that I have been good. I am just hoping to see positive results to help keep me motivated.

Hi D!! I've been hit and miss just been busy with class and the kids. Not losing but still focused.

I broke down to yesterday and stopped by McDs. Way to not feel guilty!! how are things going today? I am still needing a workout today.

Tuesday afternoon Gavin fell off the dog food container we have in the kitchen and I thought he broke his arm. I called Phil (he just left to go to work) to turn around and come with me. We ended up going to the ER and after a few hours heard that there is no fractures or breaks and I needed to follow up with his pediatrician. We saw her yesterday. The ER put a splint on his arm and it seemed to have fixed his pain for the most part. Dr. took it off yesterday and he wouldn't use his arm. I was told to watch him and if he still doesn't use it to come back and we would get a form to get more xrays. So far today he is doing ok. He is playing I'll see how things go when I change his shirt in a few min. O I'm wooped. Just glad it wasn't worse then it was.

Here's to a good rest of the day!
