OK, TIME to make some changes and figure out why I am not losing!
I have gone back over my notes of what I have been eating and tried to mark changes I have made in the last 3 wks.
Here is what I have documented:
10/7 173.4 (10-8, I started working out for the first time since Feb, 10)
10/15 174.8 (not surprised since I worked out 10-8 thru 10-14)
10/22 172 (back down since my body adjusted to my workouts of cardio and ST)
10/29 174 (? ? I am due for TOM and I did drink some diet pop (caffeine free) during the
last week. I have not drank diet pop in over 3 mos. I also started eating cold
cereal at BF instead of oatmeal. It was shredded wheat. (no sugar and this
cereal is allowed on my eating plan). This is new for me though and I have
not been eating wheat for over 3 months (no breads, nothing). I also have
skipped my protein at breakfast several times! (should NOT do that)
ALSO I got a bladder infection about 10-24. Quit working out, just not feeling
good and SO MUCH pressure on my bladder… I pee my pants. (LOL true!)
11/5 176 (?????? Baffled KIND OF??? STILL no TOM and also really skimping on
my water intake. Still fighting bladder infection. Still eating the cold cereal (some grapenuts too)
OK NOW I got worried… so I bought a Preg. Test! THANK YOU GOD, I am not pregnant! (WHEW!!!)
I wonder if missing a period has any bearing on my weight being up???
I wonder if I am starting menopause.
Maybe I just missed due to weightloss??
July was a normal 3 day period
August was normal 3 days.
Septemeber was crazy! IT WAS 8 days! It was a week early too! I am a 28 day cycler.
October cycle was MISSING! LOL
My measurements have not changed except for the babybelly one (abdomen) and it has gone up a 1/2 inch which doesn’t surprise me)
My clothes still fit the same. Most of my 12’s are pretty baggy after about 1-2 hours of wearing them.
OK, HERE IS THE NEW PLAN!!!!!
Back to eating my oatmeal, fruit, milk, protein for breakfast. I am "thinking" I might have an intolerance to wheat? ?? I will stick to my eating plan throughout the whole day….in the last few weeks I had eaten a fruit in between meals... that is not part of my plan! It is really not a problem to stick to my eathing plan because I feel so good when I do and I love how the food tastes. I follow the WHY CAN”T I STOP EATING plan that you can find on my 9-17-10 blog.
Back to drinking my water like I should.
No more caff. free diet pop… I think it bloats me and I think I don’t WANT my water or lemon water when I am drinking it…. And I think it gives me too much splenda in my diet.
I will work out regularly starting today.
NATKITA has a blog about ST that really motivates me and tells about how because of strengh training she can wear a size that normally she would have to weigh 23 lbs less to even wear. She wrote it 8-27-10. Here is the link:
She also wrote one on Sept. 20th about ab/stomach vacuums to make your abs toned.
Here is her link to that blog. I am going to try these too:
She has several blogs that are worth reading about working out…. Some great advice!
SUNSHINE667 has shown me that through ST she has been able to fit into a size that she used to wear but she didn’t have to get as low in weight as she used to be to fit into that size.
I will take my measurements today and a picture today for a beginning point.
I will post later.
I will start blogging allot more often… my friend Jenny (JENNYAMHSTYEDU1)
and Nancy (TWO-TOO-MUCH )do everyday about how they are doing on this eating plan and reading their blogs really encourage me.
OK, Sparkers… do you have a plan…. Have you revamped it if you are stalled….
Let’s do this!
The picture below is of my new outfit I bought yesterday at Penneys. I bought straight off the rack with no trying it on... LOL
These are 12's. They fit when I first put them on as the pics shows but got loose in a couple hours.
The pic below is a difference of 20 lbs.
The pic below with my son and then of me a few days ago show 20 lbs loss.
The pic below is showing about 35 lb difference.
I have a goal to be in a size 8 by Jan 1, 2011. I am not too concerned with the scales although I know it will go down too. I am going to gage my progress by measuring inches lost and by getting a pair of 8 goal jeans to work towards. I will take a picture of me in my goal jeans if I can get them on at all to take one LOL!
I am so excited... setting some goals in motion... let's get to it! HUGS to all of you who support me!
This pic below is to share my GD, Jada and my son, Lane with you. I love her halloween clothing!
I babysat her the other day... she has some cute girly clothes and weird too as my husband says about her leggings! LOL
She loves helping feed the chickens...
Love you guys THANK you so much for supporting me... Add me as a friend if you have not already... I will add you back!!! (and support you too!)
