Down Another 1.3

Well, I got on the scale today instead of tomorrow and I'm down another 1.3lbs from last Wednesday. Was hoping for a little more but I've been eating bad and haven't exercised. Over the last few days I've been super busy patching holes and painting and sorting through stuff to give away. You don't realize how much there is to do to prepare for moving. I can tell my mind is really messed up this week. I'm a nervous wreck about moving about money about leaving my home. I can tell because I've been grazing eating a lot lately. Everyday I try and tell myself to make a fresh start with my eating habits because I dont' want to end back up where I was. I'm not eating junk or a lot, just the grazing. A bite here a bite there. Anyways, I know it's my old habits trying to sneak back out but I have to control myself and tell myself that there are other alternatives to help with my worries.

Officially a 14

Well, I'm officially a size 14. I fit into a cute pair of pants I bought 2 months ago, and my size 16 old navy jeans are getting a little saggy. I got on the scale this morning, same as Wednesday, so that's good! Anyways, going to try and work out tomorrow. We were running errands all day today, then when we got home I started taking pictures down and patching holes up. Nobody came to the open house, but after talking to the realtor, he said his last 4 he did had nobody show up. Guess people just don't go to them like they use to. I have to stay positive. Something will happen soon. I just keep asking that everyone say a prayer for me. I'm not use to living paycheck to paycheck and with mortgage and rent that's what we're going to be doing! Anyways, might get dressed up and do a new picture tomorrow. We're going to my dad's to BBQ hamburgers (had patties in the freezer and obviously can't take them with to MO). Anyways, getting excited, and nervous, and dreading the whole move part of this. We have so much stuff, OMG, you don't realize it until you just stop and look around! Hope everyone had a great Saturday!

Leaving Las Vegas

Well, we signed a lease to own contract for a house that I love! The movers are coming to pack on the 8th and 9th and load on the 10th. I can't believe we're actually leaving. Unfortunately our house hasn't sold, so keep your fingers crossed that something will lhappen soon, as paying a mortgage and rent is going to be tight. We're doing an open house tomorrow, so maybe something will come from that. Nothing new to report, will try and get on the scale tomorrow morning to see where i"m at. Tomorrow will be crazy because I've gotta make sure everything is perfect for the open house. We have to go to the library to return books, have a birthday party, have to go to a clients to pick up mail, and stop at the post office. Yikes! Anyways, hope everyone has a wonderful weekend.

Got the push to work out today

So, after I put Athena down for a nap I was like, eh, I really don't want to work out today. I thought, oh, I'll try on some of my clothes my friend has passed down to me. Well, after going through the bag, I got 2 pairs of jeans (size 14), a pair of sweat pants (size Lg), and a pair of shorts (size 14). There are still several pairs of jeans that I'm not in yet, but I will be soon! So, after trying on clothes and having some that fit, I was like, geez, I need to work out so I can get into those other clothes in that bag! I'm in a size 14, how totally awesome! I was a size 26/28 when I started this process!!!!! I'm shooting for a 10/12. Anyways, just wanted to share what my push was!

Down a tad bit

Well, I remembered to strip down and get on the scale this morning. I'm down to 178.7, so that's 1/2 a pound from Wednesday. Nothing new to report on this end. I'm really going to try and motivate myself to work out today. Didn't work out on Fri or Sat. I can't believe the weekend is already over.......uhg!

Why do we do what we do?

I use that title because, why do we do the things we do. I know my limits yet my mind tells me otherwise. Last night around 10 I got hit with wanting a snack. There was some leftover spaghetti in the refridgerator, so I thought, ooooh a few bites of cold spaghetti sounds soooooo yummy! So I opened the container and took about 3 bites. Now, I know I should have just gone up to bed and the snack "craving" would have passed, but I gave in. I got what I deserved, wasn't two minutes later I was hanging out with the porcelin god. I knew when I was eating it I was going to get sick. I just had that feeling, yet I kept eating. Too bad when they're in there tweeking your insides they can't implant a chip in your head! The only reason for my eating had to be being bored. I don't think I'm depressed or sad, I think I just had nothing else to do but watch TV and when I was heavier what goes with TV......eating/snacking. Just thought I'd share my feelings. I think nights seem to be hardest for me and I guess it's because I'm alone with nothing to do. You can only read/watch TV/surf the net so much, so I get snacky in my head. Oh well. I forgot to weight in this morning, so I will try and remember to get on the scale tomorrow morning when I get up. Hope everyone is having a good weekend!

Obese No More

Well, I got on the scale this morning and I'm down to 179.2. I'm officially no longer obese and am only "over weight". I'm down 3.2lbs from last Wednesday. That means only 4.2lbs until realistic goal and 29.2lbs to happy goal! Whooohoooo!!!! Almost there!

Finally Worked Out

Well, my dad called last night to see if I was coming over today to work out. I wanted to say, probably not because I just don't feel like it, but with my dad that excuse would not cut it, so I said yes I'll be over to work out. Of course, now that I worked out I'm glad I did. I did 1.5 miles on the treadmille at a 3 incline and of those 1.5 miles I RAN 1/4 of a mile! Wow, I didn't kill over, although I was sweating! I also did some light weights. As much as I didn't want to go I'm so glad I did. Anyways, going to try and remember to jump on the scale tomorrow to see where I'm at.

Sunday, July 15, 2007


I just thought I'd post to ask for everyone to say a prayer for me that our house sells. Every day gets harder and harder without Steven here. We miss him so much. We had someone look at the house today and they liked it but they have a house to sell. Anyways, just asking for everyone who reads to say a prayer.

Got a lot done today. I cleaned off the patio and cleaned out the fountain in the back yard. I ended up with more water on me then anything! It was hot outside, but not too bad. I did everything in the morning before the temperature rose! I got a lot of work done today too so I was happy about that! I've almost got all my clients reconciled through June. Anyways, had to get the house all in order too for when the people came to look at it. So I was rushing around cleaning the mirrors and the glass. Anyways, just finishing up laundry and waiting for my sister to come over with the dog. We put water in the little pool, so the kids are going to play outside in the water.

Will post Wednesday with my weight...maybe....unless I can hold off until Saturday! :) Hope everyone has a great week!

Saturday Weigh In

I wasn't going to get on the scale and actually didn't even get on until after I had eaten breakfast and lunch and had quite a bit of water to drink. Anyways, I'm at 181 even. That means only 31lbs to goal! Almost there. Nothing new on this end. Feeling a little icky, it's that time of the month and boy did it hit hard this month!

7 Months Ago Today

Well, it's hard to believe 7 months ago I was having surgery! The time has just flown by! I put on my shorts today (the only pair I have) that are a size 16 and they're starting to get a little big. Maybe within the next 2 weeks I'll get into a 14. Anyways, nothing new to report, just wanted to "mark" my 7 month anniversary!

Down A Few More

Well, I was going to wait until Saturday but couldn't so I got on the scale this morning. I'm down to 182.4, so that's 4.3lbs lost since June 23 (18 days). I guess that's not too bad, considering from the 28th-4th I ate totally bad and didn't work out! Only 32.4lbs to go to get to my happy goal (7.4 to get to realistic goal) although that one has gone out t he window. I will be happy to get to 175 but I will not settle at 175. I think my doctor said 165 to get to a healthy/normal BMI. Anyways, that's all for today!

Saturday, July 07, 2007

Well, just another Saturday. I did not get on the scale today, as I didn't want to see what it'd say. Next Saturday I will. I didn't exercise today, as really, I forgot. I got busy cleaning out cabinets and drawers in the kitchen. I have so much crap I don't use, I figured moving is a good reason to get down and dirty and get rid of stuff. My sister is coming over tomorrow to "go shopping" from my things I don't want. I was up and down and on the floor, but I must say, WOW, how easy is it to crawl around under cabinets and be on the floor when you're 120lbs lighter! I was amazed at the way I was all over and under!
Tomorrow I'm going to take it easy and get in at least a mile on the elliptical!
To answer your question, Susy, yes we're moving to either Missouri or Kansas (haven't found a house yet, so not sure what side we'll end up on). My husband was relocated back in February, so we've been apart for 5 months now. Hopefully our house will sell soon. The market is just terrible right now. I was reading about caffine and I didn't know we shouldn't have it. I drink iced tea every now and then. It goes right through me, I guess that's because of the caffine. I'll have to look for caffine free bags, I'm sure they must make them.
Only 2 hamburgers left in the fridge, I'm tempted to just toss them, as I don't think I'll ever want to eat another one after eating them for 7 days!!

Tough Day

Well, my hubby left today, so we're all bummed. We'll have to get back on routine tomorrow so we can stay busy and not dwell on him not being here. Tomorrow is weigh in day, but I'm contemplating on getting on the scale, as I know the number has gone up a few pounds with my terrible eating the last week. I figure I won't weight in and I'll get back to my routine tomorrow then next Saturday weigh in. Our house has now been on the market for like 6 months, so that's got me down too. I just wish someone would come buy it so we could get out to KC and be a family again. Anyways, I'm sick of hamburgers. We did them on the grill Monday for Athena's b-day and Wednesday for the 4th and I still have 3 1/2 in the fridge. I'm going to get back on my Carnation breakfast tomorrow and I'm going to add a scoop of the strawberry protein powder to see if adding the protein helps. I figure chocolate and strawberries are good together, so a shake might not be bad. We'll see. Anyways, that's all for today, I might post over the weekend. If not, I will next Saturday with my weight (hopefully it'll be the same or lower)!

Back on Track

It's been a while since I've posted. My mom and my husband have both been here, so I've been busy and not eating good. In any case, my mom left today and my husband leaves Friday morning. I haven't gotten on the scale, I think subconsciously because I know I might have gone up a few pounds or at least stayed the same. I have been eating terrible and eventhough my "eating blog" doesn't reflect it, grazing a lot, which I normally don't do. I haven't exercised either, which I feel bad about, but I just didn't do it, and there were a couple of days when I could have but chose not to, so I have nobody to blame for my actions but myself. I'll get back on routine Friday when Steven leaves. I'll get on the scale Saturday to see where I'm at. Nothing much to report on this end, just been out and about with my mom.
