Hello, I need help to lose the extra weight I have carried all of my life, so I am hoping this will help me keep going on my journey. I am married for over 21 years, we have a wonderful 19 year old daughter, and I run an in-home daycare. I have been using this websight for a while now and I LOVE IT!!!

Well, I had decided earlier this week, after reading Audra's page, that I would also make a weekly journal of my journey. I am so frustrated and upset today, because I have to start out with a huge gain. I am 230 today, I was expecting to stay at 225, or maybe be up a couple because it is my TOM today, but 5? I was really shocked about that. I have been very consistent with my exercise, but I guess I must not be watching my calories or carbs as well as I thought. Oh, I did eat whatever I wanted this past weekend, guess I better own up to that. I am just surprised that one weekend can do SO MUCH HARM!!! I will have to buckle down this week, so I don't have this result again. I can do this!

7/10/10 So, I did buckle down that following week, and took off the extra 5, but then last weekend David and I went on a total splurge Friday through Monday. It was fourth of july weekend, we were moving the kids in to the new place, and stayed at their house that weekend. I don't even want to know how many calories I put away. I was very relieved when I stood on the scale Thursday and was still at 225. Whew, dodged a bullet there. I really need to make my health the priority again, and stop giving in to temptations so often. I know it is o.k. occassionally, but NOT as often as I have been doing. Thank goodness for my elliptical. At least I am consistent with that. Here's to staying FOCUSED!!!

7/15/10 So I worked really hard this week on both my eating and my exercise, so I was really BUMMED when I stood on the scale and only saw a 1 pound loss. Bummer!Well, I am down to 224, now I hope I can keep going. It has taken EVERYTHING I have NOT to splurge today. I don't know why I do that to myself, I didn't get what I want on the scale, so I figure the hard work wasn't worth it and splurge. Well, I didn't give in today, not at all. Even though the thoughts crossed my mind at least a dozen times. I CAN DO THIS, AND I WILL!!!!

7/22/10 Well, I am still 224 today. Was hoping for a loss, but at least it is not a gain. Here's hoping for better numbers next week.

7/29/10 So, I was really feeling a loss this week, but stepped on the scale, 230. UGH!!!! I don't know what I am doing wrong? I really want to lose weight, just can't seem to do it. I am working out 45 to 60 minutes 5 days a week, and staying busy on weekends. Watching what I eat 90%of the time at least, I need to get this stupid weight off!!!!!!

8/12/10 Whew, the scale is FINALLY moving in the right direction. I am down 2, 228 this week. Going on vacation, hope to keep going? I know I can do it.

9/10/10 Well, vacation didn't go so well as far as weight loss. I got up to 232. After vacation, David hurt his back, so he was home and hurting for an extra week. I got lazy, didn't exercise, didn't eat well, ate whatever, and whenever I wanted, and paid the price with a gain. Yesterday however, I was back to 226, woo hoo!! Let's keep this ball rolling.

10/07/10 Well, I did get up to 234 AGAIN, but today I am down to 225, last week I was 227. So, I have been doing Atkins the past 2 weeks, which really seems to be right for me. I am losing, and I feel good. I don't spend every minute thinking about what to eat next. I hope that I can keep this up, and keep the weight going down. I am getting closer to my next 10% goal of 213, which I hope to make BEFORE Thanksgiving.
