New Hair Cut

10%


Well I made it. Almost 8 months after starting I've lost 10% of my body weight. 26.2 pounds to be exact. Woot Woot!

I was 238.6 this morning, last June, by 34th b-day to be exact, I weighed in at 264.8 and i remember thinking, I don't know that I can even lose 10%, it seems like so much but here I am. I had a hiatus from about August to January 1st, with a 5 pound loss in Oct, but a 5lb gain at Christmas.

So next goal, 20 more pounds to bring me to my previouse 'lowest loss amount' at WW almost 3 years ago.

My Mom is in town visiting and we are having a cold snap here, with wind chill tempatures around -45 to -50C (sorry American friends not sure what that is in Farenhight). My youngest daughter Keera turned 2 yesterday and my oldest Ella will turn 3 in a week...so for the next 10 days I have 2- 2 year olds, wish me luck! (hmmm seems maybe I already posted that, please forgive me if I have).

I did 45min at home today on the treadmil and it felt great, oh and I also got my hair cut today and I love it...maybe I should post a picture...hmmm well see.

~~**.~""Happy Dance, Happy Dance""~.**~~

So I am in the THIRTY'S!!!! I am quite excited! I was 239.0 this morning. So that brings me also to another milestone, I am down a total of 25.8 pounds (hitting the 25 mark). I am also only .8 away from having lost 10% of my body weight. Which when I started I thought would be a feat, and well it has and realistically it's taken me 8 months to do it (which is *only* 3.25 pounds a month) but I know this year things will go faster. Heck I've lost 10.2 pounds since Jan 1st!! Now I am quite excited, as I said in an earlier post I *only* have 19 more pounds to go to get to my lowest previous WW weight, which I was starting to feel quite good at, and people defiantly noticed (220) and then from there only 20 to get under 200 and be the weight hubby met me at, 198/199ish.And then from there it's only 20-25 to get to goal, 175-180 ish. Though we'll have to see how goal is, I remember feeling good at that weight, but I've notices other tallies (I'm 5'11) ie Becky, who are going in to the 60''s/50's so maybe I could get that low too...but we'll cross that bridge when we get there. I would love to get to 164.8 because then I would have lost 100 pounds. Right now I am officially 1/4 of the way there!

On to other stuff..hubby is finally getting home today, he's been away since Tuesday, so I've been home with the 2 toddlers, which has gone better than I thought, but I still can't wait for him to get home. Though I did have a really awful dream last night. I dreamt that he wanted to divorce me!! Just out of the blue, wouldn't really give me a reason why, just wanted me out of the house and I was just SO sad, and in disbelief. I trust my husband more than I trust any other human on this earth and know that we'll always be together, heck he married me for time and all eternity so I KNOW he plans on being around. Now that I am typing this, I am remembering that I watched Oprah yesterday and it was on divorce adult children, and the one mom was still chocked at her hubby leaving her with 3 young girls and she had to go back to work and was quite bitter, I and I remember thinking, ya I'd be bitter too, so I'm guessing that's where it all came from. Whewwwww that makes me feel better!

Ok off to check out the blogs....Happy Saturday all.

Official Weigh In Day...

So I am 240.6 this morning...so close to the 30's...I should be there next week as af has finally arrived so we get be done with that hormone show-down for about 2 weeks. So that is an official loss of .2 from last week, with a grand total of 24.2 lbs lost (9 lbs since Jan 1st). Woot woot.

I have a friend visiting from out of town, so that explains my absents a bit...

Opps

I didn't mean for it to get so many days before I posted, I was trying to post daily...but then life got in the way a bit. Mostly I think because it was dh days off, so we were busy, not sure doing what, oh and then I have to share the computer too, so that didn't help. Also I've been a bit frustrated with my numbers to haven't been anxious to post about them.

But I've come to a few realizations. I have PMS. and it's defiantly worse than it ever was in my 20's. I might even step out there and say I am starting the perimenopause thing, I have a handful of the 'signs' and it would help explain things this past year. I am realizing that my hormones reek havoc on my system the last 2 weeks of my cycle, progressively getting worse till AF finally arrives. So much so it's affecting my life, and just this past week I started going to see a counselor. She's the one that suggested it might be hormonal, though granted as she said I do have significant environmental things going on as well. I was so apprehensive going to someone, it was my first time and to be frank, I don't' want the stigma that goes along with it. She suggested visiting a local health food store, which I did and have gotten some Estrosence and Evening Primrose Oil, which they recommended. Hopefully they help balancing out this rage that happens with in. Yesterday I was hit with the heavy sore boobs and I want to stay in bed all day and eat chocolate part. I even had a bagel at 8:30pm last night. I was just craving carbs. But I was fine the first week to 10 days when I started, could care less about chocolate/carbs. Anyways...enough on this note....

I had my second personal training session on Friday (first on Tues, not sure if I posted about it, mmm don't think so). It went pretty good, though I found we have to be really cautious of my back (2 herniated disks) some exercises I could feel my back 'tweeking'. which is unfortunate, as it felt so good to pump weights. She also wants me to lay off the running while we are introducing weight training to my body. I'm kinda sad about this, but I have to realize, I'm not as young as I think I am, my body is 70lbs over weight, I do have 2 herniated disks that I DO NOT want to aggravate...it will all just take time. So I am proud to say that this week I went to the gym I think everyday but 1! But next week will be a challenging as I have a friend coming in to town Mon/tues/wed.

Ok off to read to dd...

Contemplation

So I am realizing now on the eve of my WI, that maybe there is a reason that I am not down as much as I thought I *should* be. The first week I ate only 11 flex points (+ almost all AP's earned, eaten day of earned) and this past week I at 33 flex points & almost all AP's earned. So really that is alot of *extra* points, even though I am exercising. So this week I think I will try to mimic week 1's eating. Heck it's worth a try...

Can we say CRANKY!!!

If there is a sure sign AF is coming it's soon after miss-cranky appears. It just feels like I'm walking around with this dark cloud over head. I hate being cranky, mostly because my level of tolerability with the 2 kiddo's goes out the door. OUT THE DOOR.

I know I haven't drank enough water today and tomorrow is my *official* weigh in day and I'd like to give my body the most chances to give me a good #.

Thanks all, sorry too cranky to post more. I'm off to watch Dora.

Getting There

So my WI this morning has me at 243.0, so hopefully I can maintain or keep this, as it will have me at a (small) loss for my *official* WI Tuesday morning. Funny how all this week I've been struggling to get back to my last WI number, so much for really losing again! But it's nothing to complain too much about.

ahhhhhhhh

So I had a great afternoon, we went and walked around the indoor track for an hour! and my friend is tall like me so we were able to do a good pace that was comfortably challenging. We only ran one lap as we were chatty chatty. We then went to the movies where I had a regular sized chocolate bar and a diet pop. Yummm. I just realized now that it was my first full sized chocolate bar since Jan 2nd! For me that is amazing!! I then went (because the husband was home at a decent time yaaaa) and grabbed some groceries. I decided that I wanted yesterday to be a high point day as I haven't has a point day over 33 since starting the program (I eat at 28pts/day). So I got a mini toberlone and also ate 11pts worth of nuts!!! So I ended the day eating 45 pts!! But I feel good about it, I feel like my body needed a blast of calories, and funny enough, I am good with it, and don't feel the need to pork out today! I haven't weighed in yet, as dd was screaming to get up and i had to get her up before she woke her sister. BBL

Saturday Morning Post

So we're getting there....244 this morning. It touched back in the 243's but I couldn't do it consecutively. I have a funny thing of weighing 3 times, and then I need to see the same # twice to 'believe' it. Funny how much the scale can fluctuate getting on and off it. And I haven't done any 'business yet' which I usually like to have done before I weigh in. So I probably won't see the 30's at next weigh in, but that's fine, I should by Feb.

I am defiantly going to have some treats today, my 1/2 a me day. I am thinking a chocolate bar at the show. I had their popcorn last time and unfortunately it wasn't worth the points. I'll also have a diet pop, but that is not really indulging. hmmm don't know what else I could have...I like to try and have a day or 2 that is high points but I've been barely been able to eat me AP's never mind touching my FP's!!!

I am going with a friend today, she also wants to stop by an open house around the corner. We actually live about 7-8 houses away from each other, which is nice. and it's her daughter who is babysitting my girls. Also hubby *might* be home early-ish today so if he is I might just stay out till he gets the girls to be, ha ha. I don't know what I'd do, go work out again, go get groceries and be really slow about it?

Oh and I had BOTH girls wake up last night around 12:30am, not sure why or who was first but it wasn't fun being up, as they have both slept so good for a long time. Keera didn't settle back down for about 2h, so I had to go in a couple times. Not sure what the problem was...just hope it's over and done with tonight!!

Yummy smoothie

So I bought my husband a mini blender thingy for his shakes, and I thought I'd try it out today, and I LOVE IT!!! I'm on my second smoothie of the day! I'll have to buy me one now as he plans to take his to work. It's a hamilton beach single serve blender and it makes a good smoothie. Today I just made a simple frozen fruit, sweetener (spenda or honey), and water, so low low points (if any). I also thew in a handful of whole cranberry's, because they are so good for you and it's amazing! I just used the frozen berry mix (raspberry's, blueberry's, blackberry's etc). And for your viewing pleasure, a picture of me enjoying my Friday night smoothie, fresh out of the shower, hence my 'hat' and 'fresh' face.

It's Friday It's Friday...(but really that means nothing to me!)

Love my catchy title (not!) I'm not very creative this morning... So I am down a bit today, 245 so I think if this week ends (on tues) with me being the same as last weeks WI, I'll be doing good. That would still be a 6lb weight loss in 2 weeks which is good!

I have my appt for personal trainer set up for Tuesday, I am quite excited! I've worked out in gyms on and off for many years, but it will be nice to have a good starter program to follow. I love working out with weights, and some day, in like 70lbs, I'd like to have a really strong, somewhat muscly body. My goal is to be fit fit fit (the proverbial 'best shape of my life') by the time I'm 40, which is in 5.5 years. I know that seems like a long time, but it will take at least this year to get down to my goal weight, and then time to tweek things. And ultimately I'd still love to run a marathon. It was my goal to do it for my 35th b-day, which is in June but I don't think that will happen this year..but I'm sure I could do something by then (10km, 20km ect).

So my exciting day includes going to the gym this morning, attempting to tidy this messy TV/toy room, and maybe hit walmart this afternoon. I have arranged a babysitter for tomorrow afternoon. This rotation of my hubbys schedule (8 working 4 off) is dragging, and I need a break. So I plan to go have a good work out then go see P.S. I Love You, by myself. I haven't gone to see a movie by myself since way long ago after I broke up with a boyfriend and I wanted to prove my independence and went to a movie by myself (weird I know). I've put it out there to my 2 'friends' here, but both are busy Mom's and it is a Sat. so I am not counting on it, and would be quite happy going on my own. Personal time for me these days is at a bare minimum.

Potty training is not going worth a crap. I hate it. I'll leave it at that.

Feedback

Candace insists I post on my pooping the past couple days...

"... it could be, ahem, food retention. How goes that - ..."


So if you MUST know Candace (he he just teasing), it's
going just fine, it's the perfect kind of poop, just like Dr. Oz on Oprah says
it should be... and is a daily event. Though it hasn't happend yet today, but I
highly doubt I am going to drop a 3 pound log today.

I appreciate everyone's comments and I think they all account for the issue....

Roni said:

"no doubt the WW meal is the culprit. So full of salt!! I'm not kidding, I can
gain 5 lbs of water after one of those. "

Are they really that bad? I ate another one today, I acually have a frezer full of them as I thought they'd be an easy lunch... might have to re: think this one...

Becky said:

"...Don't believe the scale, he is a notorious liar sometimes..."

I thought my scale and I had a good relationship...maybe he's just testing me right now...

And after Candace got off the poop subject she has these valuble points...

"...eat more points earlier in the day ... if you're carb-sensitive ...focusing your carbs in the first half of the day... For supper try just meat and veggies ..."

I was thinking that I would try all the suggestions...hopefully things will 'shift' and settle back to the range I was liking...

I don't understand

I don't understand...I really don't. I am 246.6 this morning. That is a 3.2 pound gain since Tuesdays WI. I have totally been OP, the only 'bad' thing I ate was a WW choc. cake tues. night...This was my menu from yesterday

BF~Cereal + milk 4pts
L~ WW meal 6pts
L~ veggies + dip 2pts
S~ Chocl. milk 4pts
D~ 3 homemade chicken
wraps w/ lettuce and
cheese + Veggies and
cheese sauce 15pts
TOTAL 31 PTS
daily pt goal 28, total AP's earned 6 (only 3 used)


Any thoughts? I don't feel like i've gained weight, I drank a ton of water yesterday had a really good work out (i'm just on the treadmill and bike so I doubt I am putting on muscle.)

It's frustrating when you are doing things by the book and things don't make sense. Last week was spectacular, but now I don't know what is going on! I am not due for AF for a good 10days...hmmph.

I love how I can gain 2 lbs in one day

So the scale said 245.2 this morning. Hmph.

I know I didn't gain 2lbs yesterday, It's not like I ate anything 'bad' or went way off program. I think it may be a water thing or a bigger diner, which maybe have been a bit salty (fries; ok I know you ask your selves, ahhh Tallmama, you just said you didn't eat anything bad..well the fry's were 2pts for 85g which fills your 2 hands shaped in a bowl, which is a nice size, so I had 2 helpings, only 4pts and all in all diner was only 10-11pts). But that being said they were frys and i'm sure had salt on them. I did eat some chicken skin (you know, the stuff off those store rotisery chickens, can you say YUM!) but I did count it. Anyways that was alot of meaningless blabering.

So I am just back from the gym and it went well. Ella (oldest dd) was left in tears at the gym child care, Keera could care less (which is a good and bad thing). I did 30min on the treadmill with the usual walk/run pattern, and I also did 15 min on the bike. I didn't do sprints this time, but did do a level 6 and kept my rpm's up. My heart rate was actually higher on the bike than walk/run on the treadmill. And also, you'll be so proud of me, I signed up for a personal trainer!! I am getting 1h consultation and 2h in the gym training. I am excited. I need to do more than just cardio.

Results Week 1

So today marks the end of week 1, results as follows:

Starting weight 249.2 pounds
Ending weight 243.2 pounds
TOTAL LOST 6 pounds

# of days AP's earned-4 days
Total AP's earned- 23 pts

# of Flex points used- 11 pts

# of Days chocolate was consumed- 3 days
_____________________________________________________________________

So that is my summary. On a different note, you'll see I posted my lovely before pictures before. I only did that as I am pretty there are under 5 people who read this blog :). and really who cares. I was kinda surprised I was not a 'bumpy' as I thought I'd be. I wish I had a good official start pic (at 264.8 lbs). I think I have one from Cuba last year.... anyways I am getting sidetracked from the story I am wanting to tell you.

So I took dh pics last night too, he is starting isagenix today, and then he took my pics, of course I was not in my swim suite all day, so I did a quick strip in the basement and he took my pics, he then stays "ohhh this is turning me on". LOL!! taking pics of your {fat} wife who does NOT look hot in a swim suit. Then he was trying to talk me in to a quickly in the spare room "it's our last chance to do it as fat people". Ha ha ha ha. So it feels nice that he's still very much attracted to me. I was cracking up all night about it. (no we didn't do it in the spare room, we did when we went to bed :0 )

The joys of motherhood

Pre-curser, if you don't enjoy "joy's of parenting" antidotes, don't worry about reading this post.






So I am potty training my 35m old dd. (that equals almost 3yo!!) and we are on day 5 today, last night the end of day 4 we FINALLY had something in the potty, poop! yaaa. So today we go all day with nothing in the pot and a couple pee accidents. So I know she has to go pee at super so I remove her booster seat and replace it with the potty. She's eating away and then is "done" "done" so I go over and she is half way getting out of her chair, with her foot in the potty and low and be hold, there is liquid in it. I realize her apple juice is just about empty so I wonder; is it pee or is it apple juice. I don't want to giver her a prize for pouring her apple juice in her potty. So how do I figure out what it is you ask? Well I tried smelling, that didn't work, so I dipped my finger in it, warm, yup it's pee.
I love motherhood some days.

First Video Post

So with the new year we thought we'd get the family on a healthy track....

Zip lock bags

I love these things. I love them so much I think about how much I love them every time I use them. I use them to store stuff, frozen veggies, a couple diapers and wipes (wipes alone in smaller zip locks), puzzles, leftovers you name it, it's in a zip lock at my house. I just feel so organized when I use them. I have all my dry pasta in them even.

Oh and I got on that treadmill that sits behind me today for 30 min. The youngest was trying to get on with me but other than that they were fine. Oh and they found it quite funny when ever I would run. Hmmmm maybe they were laughing and the BOING BOING BOING.

Teeter-totter anyone?

So I am down again this morning; 243.6 woo hoo! I guess we just have to realize that our body's are constant fluctuating machines and to get the same number constantly, or a consistently lower number is near impossible. I'll accept that.

So the treadmill is all moved in, and sitting a mere 4 ft from where I sit typing this...I think I might try tackling it when I put the girls down for a nap...or maybe before lunch. I'm just not sure how the girls will react with me on it...we might have to fence me in, lol!

So right now it seems quite achievable to be in the 30's by Feb, that would be so awesome! It will then seem like things are happening. I will only have about 20lbs to lose at that point to where I *know* I start feeling good and looking better (it's where I stalled out on previous weight loss attempts in 2005). And then from that point it's only 20lbs to my wedding weight, and then only 20lbs till goal, so it all seems so attainable once I get in the 30's.

Well maybe I'll go get the girls a snack, and me a piece of fruit.

Sunday, January 6, 2008

So I was right

The scale was up a bit this morning, which I kinda thought it would. But still I kinda wonder why it went so low on Friday? Weird. I am 246 which is still great, that still means just over a 3lbs lose so far this new year. I also made it to the gym yesterday for another good work out; I was on the treadmill for 30 min and did 10 1-minute walk cycles. Then I hoped on the bike for 10 min. I am still a bit perplexed on how to count my AP's. What I am doing is an average between High and Moderate...for now. After a month or so I'll drop it down to just moderate as my body will be getting accustom to it by then.

Also my husband got a buddy from church to help him move the treadmill back inside today! That will be interesting with the toddlers, I'll have to see if they will *let* me work out. At minute I should be able to wake up early and do some exercise. I feel really motivated and pumped this time and hope this lasts! Not sure why but I just do. It also truly feels so good to work out, I think that helps!

Holy Crap-olla

So I get on the scale this morning, I am feeling slimmer, you know the feeling, but wasn't expecting to see what I saw....244.0 and to be honest it kept bouncing from 243.6 to 244 but I opted for 244 in case it goes up a bit tomorrow so I'm not too disappointed! Yesterday the scale was saying 247.2 that is a 3.2 lose in one day. Which honestly we know wasn't all fat, it was a good portion of water, with all my exercising and my body is probably realizing that I will feed it water everyday so it is letting go of a bit more. I'm also at the part of my cycle that I usually gain a pound or hold tight (around ovulation to TOM this happens. I am my lightest a day or two after TOM is done).



So of course i am even more pumped now! Since Jan 1st when I WI at 249.2 I am down 5.2 lbs!!! I guess it's like starting over since I really wasn't following program, so the first couple weeks of WW you usually do drop allot to pounds. It would be awesome to see the 30's in January!!

Friday, January 4, 2008

she keeps inching her way down

that's the scale, this morning I was 247.2 yaaaaa
Also, drum roll please.....


I worked out AGAIN! I did 30min on the treadmill and I guess I did between 8 and 10 one minute runs!!! Then I went on the bike for 20min with again a bunch of 30 sec to 1min sprints. I loved it! I was all sweaty and everything. Yum!

So a question for those that track w/ WW and track your Activity points...on the slider there is a big gap between "moderate activity" and "high intensity" I've always done moderate activity. but the past 2 days I am SWEATING my ARSE off, high heart rate and defiantly working...would I just jump up to 'high intensity' or do I have to guess-timate somewhere in the middle? What do you guys do? (or would you do?)

moderate said I earned 4 AP
High saids I earned 10 AP
that is a huge difference! I accounted for 5AP's ...which really is allot to earn...

Thursday, January 3, 2008

ohhh forgot to mention something

Though my time at the gym today was most fun, I did have a moment that truly reminded me why I was there. So I'm on the treadmill, walk'n away at a 3.3mph rate, 2incline. It's about 16min in to my 20min planned 'walk' and I get the urge to run. I love running, I use to run and I look forward to the day I can run again (and hope someday to do a marathon if my back will allow). So I think I'll finish off with a 1min walk/1min run sequence. So I start running, feels good! Then I think ummm I can totally feel my a#s literally bouncing up and down, off unison to my running. Almost to the point of distracting me. I am getting this visual of how attractive this must be to the people on the bikes behind me. BOING BOING BOING. nice. What ever, I have a bootie; always have always will.

GO! It feels great!

So this morning I was 247.8 I'm slowly inching back down, I am sure a bit of my weight was water retention from TOM and not drinking hardly any liquids. Also my body is probably going in to shock from all my healthy eating! I also hit the gym today, hard! and it felt wonderful. I slipped out during nap time while hubby is home. I was there for almost an hour and a half! I did 22min on the treadmill (2- 1min run's), 6min on the eliptial mch (hurting my back, remember 2 herniated discs?), 25min on the bike with 3-4 30sec. sprints. So a total of about 53 min of cardio, and I could have gone more, but I didn't want to totally over do it with my back. We'll see how she is feeling tomorrow! I then did some stretches and 2 ab sets on the big ball. I really felt like I could have spent the rest of the day there, but alas I do have other responsibilities.

I hope to get there tomorrow and sat. as well. If you are reading this, and have not been to the gym, GO! It feels so great!

TTFN

Day 2 done

So I am finishing up day 2 today, and it went better. I finished up exactly at my point goal, 28 points. I did just eat 3 chips before my hubby threw out the bag but what ever.

Food Intake

cheerios + milk 3pts
pear 1pt
quesidia + salad 7pts
carrots + dip 2pts
subway 8pts
pudding 3pts
chocolate 4pts
Total 28pts

I also drank lots of water, ya for me. I hope to get to the gym tomorrow as hubby is off. I also downloaded a bunch of new songs to my MP3 player so I am excited to have some good tunes to work out to. I still want to post a Jan 1st pic...maybe tomorrow.

248 That is my number on day 2

So I finished yesterday dipping 8 points in to FP, and that was with NO CHOCOLATE!! Diner was yummy but a bit on the high side and that paired with a high point lunch = over points limit! So obviously I'll have to get back on track with watching my points, keeping lunch around 8-10 and not have 2 high point dishes for super (ham and scalloped potatoes).

I think my body is liking me drinking water again. Though I do taper off my consumption late afternoon as I hate getting up to pee in the middle of the night. One of my pet peeves. I only had to get up once last night. If the gym had child care open today, I would have gone, as my kids are driving me NUTS!!! It's extra hard over the holidays as everything is closed. At least DH starts days off tomorrow for 4 days.

OK should go get Ella out of time out. uhhggggggg!!!

Tuesday, January 1, 2008

249.2 that's my starting number for 2008.

So my official WI this morning has me *barely* under 250. But I'll take it last year this time I was hovering around 265. Heck it's better *only* losing 15lbs in a year than gaining even 5lbs!! I am back on tracking and counting points. I really do love WW as it is a very simple program to follow, it works and you can eat what you want, with in reason. I am determined to do it this year. Right now I really want to see the 230's as I was getting so close in the fall but then relapsed a bit, but really I only gained 4-7lbs depending on WI. So back on the wagon, I am assuming with a whole bunch of other people. but what ever. I'm ready right now to do it so why not.

So far today

oatmeal and apple 3 pts
quesadia (sp?) 14 pts (i'll have to lay off the cheese!)
apple 1 pt

For diner, which I haven't eaten yet, I'm doing left over ham, scalloped potatoes (semi-friendly) and peas. I do have chocolate in the house..so hopefully I'll hold out on my first day...I also have a pomegranate so maybe that will satisfy my 'after the girls go to bed, and flop on the couch' munchy time.

Hope everyone had a great start to 2008.

Happy New Year
