I Just Keep on Truckin

I keep on starting over and over and over. Today is the first day yet again. I have done fine today but I don't have a headache or feel sick to my stomach it seems that as soon as that happens then I want all the bad stuff because it makes me feel better.

OK I am kinda combining different low-carb eating plans and hopefully it will all come together. I have such a hard time sometimes with time management. My son is starting baseball and the rest of the kids want to play too but there isn't enough time for my husband and I to make it happen with all of them. I need at least 2 more parents and that's not going to happen.

Anyway I was weightlifting with Lynn and my nephew the other day and Lynn hurt her neck so she was out of commission for a few days I felt bad. I told her " Come on you can do more weight than that " So she was going to show me I was wrong and in the process she got a huge pain in her neck. ( Me and her neck) She is doing better now but it took a few days.

Well I check back next week and let you know how I did.

Bad Weekend

Chalk it up to a bad weekend food wise anyways. I didn't really eat to much I just had one to many margaritas yesterday but boy were they good. I just need to loosen up a little.

I am very bloated and the salt didn't help I hope it goes away fast but it never happens that way like I always say it is so much more fun putting it on than taking it off.

Well I need to step up my plan and get my head out of the ground.

I find lots of inspiration through my friends and family and I just want to be successful.

Well until the next time.

Battle of the Buldge

Recently I posted on facebook that I needed motivation to keep on track with my weight loss goals. I appreciate all the response I got it can be so discouraging and I thought by making everyone aware of it that would give me the push to go for it. Unfortunately with my thyroid problem it doesn't happen as fast as most people and I might lose 1 pound a week which is sssslllllooowww I am not expecting 5 lbs a week but to move a little faster would be great.

I am not trying to make excuses I know how my body works and I can't cheat at all or the weight just comes right back on. I also am not a saint and I have cravings that need to be met and I try to eat sugar free jellos, fudge bars, and puddings it helps.

I will keep fighting the battle of the bulge for the rest of my life. I know that to be a fact and I am ok with it I just want to get to where I need to be and maintain.

I lost 40 lbs and put 20 back on over Christmas. I didn't think I did that bad but it was that bad it is so much more fun to put on than take off. I live by this moto.


I will never be thin but I would like to be comfortable in my own skin.

Mexican Bread is so Yummy

Well I am almost done with my second week. I blew it bad today I love the Mexican bread at Chagitos and I had 2 not one but 2 and now I don't feel so good. But it sure tasted good.

This is the first day I have messed up. I have not had any sodas (yea) and I have not had any sugar until today. On Thurs we went to weight watchers and I lost 1.4 lbs I so thought it was going to be better than that. I was disappointed. I have been working so hard at the gym and I well I was just disappointed.

Now to move on. I am still working really hard at the gym and hopefully with my thyroid meds changed it should help alot (I hope). Well I have dinner in the oven and I better go and check on it. Until then.

New Commentment

I want to make a committment to loose 20 lbs. by May 1, 2010 alot is going on in May and it would be so nice to be comfortable while being so busy. I have the workouts down I just need to get the food consuption under control. I have no will power to say no to sweets I LLLLOOOOVVVVEEEEE sugar, the way it tastes, the way it melts, the way it smells, all of it. I need to keep sugar out of my reach and mind. With my household that is very hard to do. I figure if I write about it then it is like confessing out loud to everyone. ( At least you Jennifer) I'll make myself belive it is alot of people anyway. Well I will check in later. Weight Watchers is Thursday so I will be weighing in every week. C Ya!!!

Starting over yet again!!!!

Well its been a while and someone told me that I should start writing on my blog again and I said well why not.

I gained 20 lbs. back from the 40 I lost summer and the holidays got the best of me and I didn't say no to all the goodies. But as of this week the kids are back in school and I am ready to get back on track.

Started back at the gym and it is hard but the pain is good. I am trying to put together my own exercise programs which is hard because of the different muscles to work on different days.

Anyway I will keep plucking away at my weight loss and try to journal every week.

Bye for now. OK I thought I had to go.

I have such a hard time when we go out to eat not that we go out that often but I want something that tastes good not something that is good for me. I know how dum is that thin tastes much better that anything but when you are standing there ready to order I am not thinking salad or grilled chicken I am thinking what would make my mouth water and that is what I want. I know, I know, get over it.

The meal plan I do is a low carb because I have a thyroid problem and so in order to lose weight I need to eat carbs early in the day. I like to follow the suzanne somers diet. It works for me the only thing is I need to keep track of protion control or I will way over eat.

I am so glad that I have decided to restart. I know I will feel better as soon as the weight starts coming off. I have had a taste of it and I want it back.

Well until next week reminding myself "EAT SMART"

I can't believe that I made it another 2 weeks. I am so sad that both of my teammates were eliminated. I work out with Lynn my teammate and friend and we made a promise to each other that who ever was eliminated first we would continue on this journey together. Working out with someone really helps and pushes you to "GO FOR IT". Sometimes I just don't want to go to the gym but if I know I'm meeting Lynn there then I know I have to go and I have to work hard because she pushes me and kicks my butt. I will not give up, I don't know what place I am in but I hope I can keep it up.
