203 pounds good day

today was super hard! I want sugar today! I dreamed of cookies last night! sugar cookies and no bake chocolate cookies! I didn't take my snack defense tablets today, and thats most of the problem. when I take the snack defense tablets, then my cravings are almost non-existent! I will make sure and take them tomorrow. I really want to get serious about loosing my next 20 pounds, I've been messing around and dragging this thing out! I went to zumba today (it's a Latin dance style work out) I go 3 days a week. A bunch of us do it at our church building while the kids run around and play, it's great and it's free. I recommend that everyone get a work out group together that's free and kid friendly. Meg gets to socialize, while I get a work out and social time as well.

200.5 pounds Great day!

Yeah! it only took me three days to take off my Easter weight! Hopefully I wont have to go through this the next holiday because The further I go, the better I get at self control. I've never been one to be in control of my surrounding or body, and I have learned how important it is in my life. I have tried so may programs and wonder pills to loose weight, and nothing has worked until now. It's now not just about my weight, or what size I am, it's about feeling good from the inside out, and being healthy. I have a ways to go, and I cant imagine how Great I will feel when I take off the 60 more pounds that need to go!

201.5 pounds Great Day

We had dinner for lunch, and im not really hungry tonight, so yeah for me. I feel like I have enough motivation in me for everyone to lose weight and become healthy! If you want you can turn the herbalife shake mixes into really yummy pies, or different kinds of candy bars! they taste so good, you feel like your cheating....but your not!

203 Pounds Good day

I hope everyone had a great Easter holiday! We did, and we traveled the whole week and ate whatever we wanted! We actually brought all of our stuff with us, but it was just too hard to diet while we were out of town! Hopefully someday I can get to to where im always eating right, but I'm not their yet! As you can see I gained back 2.5 pounds, and I feel like I'm never going to hit that 199 mark! I've been back on my program for 2 days now, and I didn't have sugar withdraws! I think that it's because I took the herbalife snack defense tablets. They really take away the sugar craving! I haven't had any desire to eat sugar or treats at all, and normally it takes me 4 to 7 days to get fully back on to my program without any cheating. To motivate myself I love to look at pictures of people exercising, or eating healthy. I know that sounds dumb, but it really works! I just look through my herbalife catalog everyday and look at all the products and pictures that represent a healthier happier way of living. They even offer a whole skin care program that I would love to try! The good thing is, is that Im not looking at pictures of skinny models or super beautiful people, im looking at pictures that could possibly be ME in a year or so! I actually feel like with the help of herbalife that I can achieve that healthy happy way of living, were my body always feels great.

200.5 pounds Good day

Today was a great day. I loved being able to watch general conference. We had a BBQ at the Denneys tonight and had lots of fun! I did have homemade ice cream with homemade fudge sauce, but I couldn't finish it because it made me sick! I'm not used to eating that kind of stuff anymore. that a good thing. We will be driving to Tulare tonight, and then leave for Bakersfield on Wednesday and wont be home till Monday, so this may be the last blog for the week. Everyone have a great Easter Break and remember the reason for the season! We are all blessed!

200.5 Good Day

Today was great! Doug and I worked with Meghan on bike riding, and when she stays focused she can pedal and keep the bike going. The only problem is that about every 5 seconds she loses focus and stops pedaling! silly girl. If you know Doug then you know this is amazing, but he got on a bike today and liked it! As soon as we get Meghan up to speed, we will start going on family bike rides. Dougs shoes had a whole in them, so he got a new pair of running shoes and we jogged a mile tonight. I need to talk to my sister and get the program she has for preparing for a 5k run. She said that is starts out super easy, so I think that we can handle it. Were getting to the point were we prefer to be outside than watching T.V. I'm not sure what well do when summer hits, but right now I'm just enjoying today! It's so beautiful here and the weather is perfect. It was actually a little cold when we were having frozen yogurt.

201.5 pounds good day!

I'm happy I'm finally not at the 203 mark. We went to the soccer field around the corner from our house today and played soccer for an hour! I didn't know that Doug could run, but that boys pretty fast!

203 pounds Good day

we went to mcDonalds for dinner, but I decided it was too many calories, so I burnt of 500 calories on the recumbent bike, then when Doug got home at 9:30pm we went for a walk for 45 minutes. So Now I have a clear conscious, but am a tad sore....

Tuesday, March 31, 2009

203 pounds good day

Still no weight lost! oh well, im really getting to the point where my eating habits are changing. I'm not really planning on getting below 200 until after Easter break. I've upped my exercise and am now burning 300 calories a day. I'm hoping by the end of the month that I will be burning 500 calories a day.

Friday, March 27, 2009

203 pounds good day

Today was great, I even exercised! I really need to make sure I exercise every day. I'm finally back in the swing of things, im a little worried about traveling for a week during spring break, but I guess I shouldn't worry about it until the time comes. I'm looking forward to girls night out tomorrow! yeah!

Thursday, March 26, 2009

203 pounds Good day

I have to admit, that it's very hard for me to back into routine once I get out of it for a few days, today was kind of hard, but I made it! Tomorrow I need to throw in some exercise, though I did mow the lawn today, so does that count? I dont know because it's a pretty small lawn. Sometimes I feel like im getting smaller, but other days I feel just as big as ever! I have a harder time when I feel huge. I feel like i'll never be small! I know I'll never be petite, but I could hopefully get down to a size 12?? I would feel TINY at a 12!

Monday, March 23, 2009

I had a great vacation and a great time in San Fransisco, I'll be back posting tomorrow. Hopefully I dint gain too much weight on my vacation! Well find out tomorrow!

Good Day 202 Pounds

Good day 203.5 pounds

Today was an easy day, I didn't have any cravings and wasn't hungry. I did get mad in my history class! My professor had graded all the midterms except two of them, one of the two was mine! he said he didn't grade it because I wasn't in class last week (it's a one day a week class and i was sick) How much effort would it have been to grade the two tests that belonged to the sick people! Now I have to wait till next week to get my grade....oh well. I haven't exercised in the last couple of days and i need to be like Juli and get out there and do it! When I get down to 193, I will take more pictures. I figured that you probably cant see a big difference doing it any closer than every 20 pounds.

Good Day 204 pounds

Today was much easier. I just got into a bad funk for two days. I didnt want to drink my shakes, then i got really hungry and tired. On the days that I do my program right and not skip shakes everything works out great and I'm not hungry and I have energy and I feel great. I guess I just got a little bored and was lazy and didnt feel like making my shake. Anyway today was super easy and I'm pushing forward. Doug has been so great! He keeps me on track and is doing great himself! he has lost 10 pounds! Even Meghan has thinned out. She is a big reason why I am doing this. When my eating habits are out of control, She eats all kind of stuff that's horrible for her! I want her to be healthy, and not have weight problems of her own. So thats it for today!
good Days 204 pounds

I had two very HARD days! It was hard to stay on track. I cant say that I did perfect, but I didn't totally mess up either. I forgot one of my shakes on day, and had a bowl of cereal instead. last night we had dinner at Mc Donald's, but the fat content was about the same as a lot of our dinners, plus I took a thermobond before we went. So, I guess I could have made a couple better choices than I did, but just surviving the last two days, and not totally falling of the wagon is an accomplishment. Hopefully I'll do what I did last week, and lose a couple of pounds at the end of the week!

March 9th 2009

Good Day 204 pounds

I exercised, and had 35 grams of fiber yum! Here's a Shout out to Julie! Way to go for working out at the gym! It has to be hard trying to fit it in between family, work, church stuff, ect. Here's a tip that is actually working for me! whenever I see fast food commercials, or yummy food I don't want to eat, instead of thinking oh, I want that so bad I think YUCK! that looks really heavy and gross, and it makes me feel sick. then whenever I see something healthy I think oh, that looks soooo good! This is called conditioning, and it really works! we've done some experiments in my psychology class and it's pretty interesting. It wont work right away, but keep on doing it! Never give up, Never Surrender! haha

March 8th 2009

GOOD DAY 204.5 pounds

It's finally starting to hit me that I can actually do this! Doug and I are going to join a gym next month. there's a cheap one around here for 25 bucks a month with free baby sitting! yeah! I would really like to strength train. I didnt do to bad at game night and had a lot of fun. I brought my camera to take pictures and forgot to! oh well, I'll try again next time. I have actually had a problem this week remembering to eat my shakes and snacks. I just haven't been hungry this week. I'm not sure if its because of the herbalife supplements I take, my body for the first time is getting everything it needs, so it's not craving anything. I'm just working on getting to the point where I love to work out! Hope you all have a great week and good eating!

GOOD DAY BUT GAME DAY.... 204.5 pounds

After not losing any weight in a week, i drop 3 pounds in 48 hours! im not complaining. I'll see if I gain any back tomorrow, because tonight is game night and I can eat whatever i want! I'm not planning on totally pigging out, but I wont know until the night is over! I will take my Thermobond before I go and probably put fiber in my drink so I'm fuller and wont eat as much. I don't think I have ever dieted 2 weeks straight without any cheat days, so this is pretty exciting for me! Now if I can just get through the next 6 months! My main goal it to lose 54 more pounds, and then go from there. I don't know what size I'm supposed to be with my large frame. When I get down to 150 pounds I will see if I need to lose another 10 or 15 more! I really think that if most of us could get past the first two weeks, then the rest would be down hill! I was told once that it takes 28 days to build a new habit, but if you cheated at all throughout the 28 days you would have to start over. I'm hoping to make it to the 28 days, so I can have a healthier lifestyle for the rest of my life!

GOOD DAY 205.5 pounds

I'm writing this kind of early in the day, but im pretty sure I wont cheat. I'm glad I finally started losing weight again! I was getting a little worried, and trying not to be discouraged. Hopefully I dont gain it back tomorrow at game night, but im making a Texas sheet cake and am going to have a piece! We have game night every other Saturday, and it's my "FREE" evening, hopefully I can eat what I want and not feel guilty!

GOOD DAY 207.5 pounds

I think I'm getting sick again! yuck.

Wednesday, March 4, 2009

so-so day 207.5 pounds

I went to mcdonalds today to let meg play. I took my shake with me and ate some apple dippers. I didnt cheat and It felt great! then I come home to cinnamon rolls straight out of the oven with frosting on them! I survived mcDonalds to succumb to a cinnamon roll! so, I didnt have my second shake, and I didnt eat any of my snacks. I dont think that totally made up for it, but that was the best I could do. I'm kind of worried tonight because i just ate dinner for the night and it REALLY SUCKED! When I only get one meal a day, it's really a downer when the food is gross. I hope I dont cheat anymore today!
