(Weight Watchers)
Weight: 256.0

Tonight is weigh in night, I didn't quite follow the plan over the holidays and pretty much expect to gain weight. But I'm going to get right back on track, I have glorious hopes of a better year.

My face has exploded with awful acne, I can't get an appointment until after the new year with a dermatologist. I have never been because i keep hoping the last outbreak will be the last one, but every other week there is something popping up on my face, they are big huge red nodules that are flaming angry red and hurt unimaginably. Today it hurts so bad I actually called, but alas no one is in until after the holidays..unless emergency. Well, i've put up with it this long a few more days surely won't hurt. Well, only my self-esteem. I'm 41 years old, I didn't have acne like this in high school.

Ever wonder why you can't repush an elevator floor button light to turn it off? Oops you pushed floor #2 by mistake, you actually wanted floor #4, but guess what, that floor #2 is written in stone, you are going to stop on floor #2 regardless if you wanted to stop there or not, there is no forgiveness, no turning back, it seems with all this great technology today, someone should invent a forgiving elevator button.

My son just recently broke up with his girlfriend of 2 years, he is living at home again. It is something to get used to. He is also caught up in playing Worlds of Warcraft (WOW) and he has no ambition to do anything else. He comes home from work and stays on the computer all night long. He is mad at his dad, who lives in Georgia and says he is going to move there to live with his ex step-mother...not his dad, but ex step-mother, this irks me some. I'll have to think of other things.

I joined the AVA (American Volksport Association) and have been walking alot the last year, there is a walk scheduled January 1, what a way to kick off the activity. I hope the weather cooperates with a long walk.

Continued success to all, IP

Progress as of today: 25 lbs lost so far, only 90 lbs to go!

I haven't posted in so long I couldn't figure out how to make a new entry, but as usual, clicking around on everything helps.

The last two years have been horrid and I'm am all for good things in 2009. I have been doing weight watchers the last two years and my only fault with them is the personal accountability thing...I guess I want to talk to someone on a more personal level than in a group, yeah, I'm not one to talk amongst alot of people, same goal in mind or not.

So, I'm back to posting my thoughts and feelings, which may or maynot be off the wall so this will be fair warning. It is great to see some old familiar names and new ones. Good Luck and continued success to everyone.

I walked to WATP the two mile tape, I like it OK, but sometimes, I wish I could change the talking. I have to put it down very low, and put on some music because I get tired of the same ol conversations. There are 206 bones, I know that because I've listened to Leslie say it for four days in a role.

I went to Furr's last night with my parents, since I've been working two jobs, it is hard for me to track them down when I'm off, they do their own thing, mainly travel, play bingo and garage sale, they are never home.

We get free drinks at work (soda/coffee/tea) whatever you want to drink. I usually stick with diet Doctor Pepper, but then I was thinking, what if when you quit, they were secretly monitoring how much you drank and then slapped a big, huge bill on you on your way out the door. I guess I'll stick to water.

Men are so funny. They were making 20 copies of a presentation, about 30 pages. Then they took the 30 pages and made 30 separate piles around the conference room table and walked around in a circle picking one of each up to make their packet. I didn't say anything I was just shaking my head, because just last week I showed them how to punch one little key on the copier and the copier would sort it for them. Instead of coming to ask me again, they wasted about 30 minutes putting their packets together. Damn their pride!!

I was just born with a need to explore every tool shop of my mind, and with long searching and hard work. I became devoted to my restlessness. Gordon Parks

I couldn't get up this morning to walk, but the day is not over and I will get it in before I go to bed tonight, this is for certain.

I started off saying I would diet, and I walk into the break room to get my fruit salad for breakfast and there is this chocolate cake, souffle, chocolate pudding type thing on the table, sitting there screaming, eat me! Eat me! So instead of getting my fruit salad I had a spoonful of the yummy, chocolately stuff....not one but two.

I have issues with people. I had every intention to go to water aerobics, but I couldn't get out of the car. The terror is so real to me. I sat there and told myself I would get out of the car, but I couldn't. I watched people come and go and I just couldn't bring myself to get out. I could feel my heart start beating really fast and my hands were shaking and I broke out in a cold sweat. I just couldn't make myself get out of the car. It was awful. I then said I would just go home and walk, but i didn't, I went to my mom's house, but she wasn't there. I just went home and read my book.

Today at lunch, I was going to go walk at the lake, which is a couple mile from my office. I was going to walk for 30-40 minutes and then come back. I wasn't scared of this, I just got there and wanted to read my book, while I watched everyone else walk. I am so pathetic.

I have to work at the bank tonight, so I know my excuse tonight will be that I am too tired.

I will get this thing under control. I will, I will.

Yall have a nice day.

bunny_girl on 03/02/2006:
Going to a pool alone would scare the heck out of me too!! Totally normal I think...probably a parking lot full of people who didn't go in! ;-) as for the walk at lunch...well hey you got all the way to the lake! That's like half the battle!! I'm sure you'll do it next time no prob. Good luck!!


borntocry on 03/02/2006:
Hi InnerPeace,

bunny_girl is right. I think many people would have a problem with water aerobics. Until about a year ago, I hadn't appeared in a swimsuit in public since I was seven years old. I used to swim like a fish then, and now I can't even keep afloat. They say you can't forget how to swim - well, it's not true!

Not only that, but even when I started running, I was so embarrassed and afraid to be out like that in public that I often went all the way to the sports complex and then just turned around and went home. I just couldn't face the people. It's a big problem for me too, so I don't really know what to tell you. But when I get those fearful feelings I try to just keep telling myself that all those people suck, that I don't care what they think, that I'm not going to let them ruin my day. If I keep telling myself that, it does help a little.

Good luck!

Had a great weekend. Saturday we went to the OU basketball game and met a group of my friends, there are 13 ladies, and ate dinner at PF Chang's. Very good Chinese food there. Afterwards we went to one of the ladies house and played cards and bingo. The bingo prizes were the little bottles of liquor you get on airplanes. It was so fun. We are practicing for our old age. One of the girls is going to Florida to meet an on-line friend, believe me we discussed all the possible things that could happen and go wrong. She is going the end of March, she said she pushed it back to then so she could try to lose 10 pounds. I thought she was absolutely gorgeous, matter-of-fact I was thinking, 'Man, I would love to look like she looks' My green envy monster showing up..(I have several different monsters) and then she's saying she wants to lose 10 pounds. I guess everyone has their weight they are comfortable at, or a weight where they can look in the mirror and like what they see.

Sunday we went to the Library's annual book sale, picked up some very nice books for .25, .50 & $1.00 a piece and then we went to the Civic Center and listened to a story teller. I washed my car, went to Kohl's, looking for a swim suit to do water aerobics in, but they didn't have any in my size. I fixed my friend's VCR/Cable/DVD/TV hookup so she could record and then I went to the grocery store of course I had to wash clothes and clean up the house.

It was a pleasant weekend. Today, I actually got up to exercise. I didn't do much, but it's a start. There's a great commerical I can't remember what is is actually advertising, but it shows a lady going into a gym, but then she comes right back out of revolving doors and then it says you have to take baby steps. Well today I took my first baby step, after I got up and turned of the alarm and climbed back in bed, I was still awake and said 'self, you are awake, just get up and do someting'. I did the WATP 1 mile tape, I stepped on the cat twice. I was kicking and he thought I was playing and then when I stepped he was just in the way. The second time it happened, I yelled...move you stupid cat but he just lies right down in my exercise path and I have to push him out of the way. I think it lasted 15 minutes, but I have to gradually get back into exercising.

I know working two jobs is wearing me down, heck I slept most of the day Saturday, and if it wasn't for tickets to the bb game, then I probably would have slept more. Sunday Tomorrow I have plans to do my 2 mile WATP and my water aerobics in the evening, Tuesday night is my only night off from my second job and I guess I'll just have to wear my old bathing suit. I wanted one with shorts on the bottom, because my thighs are so big....but I'm not going to complain, I'll just wear the one have.

Hope you all have a great day! IP

OMG I cant believe it has been forever since I have put a journal entry here. I started a diet and lost 20 pounds. But then I lost my job and went on numerous interviews, only to be denied a job. What a freakin morale buster that is. First they laugh in your face, then they ask when you can start and then they say how wonderful your qualifications are, but I never once got a call back or job offer. I know it has to do with my appearance, I know it, I know it!! So anyway, surprisingly I was offered a job, havent decided if I like it or not but it gives me a paycheck so I guess I may stay for awhile.

And then, stupid Sonic comes out with a Sweetheart blast and I have one and then I have another and I think I ate one everyday day for a week and a half. I had to say. Come on Jo Ann, are ya trying to kill yourself? But I know it (food) is my drug of choice. I love food, I love chocolate and candy and all things sweet and creamy and I am an ADDICT! I think I would rather scrape the taste buds off of my tongue than deal with my weight problem.

I have gym membership but I am ashamed to go, I just know everyone is watching me. I cant get up in the morning to go, because I cant get my fat ass out of the bed. I set my alarm in another room. I got out of bed, turned of the alarm and climbed right back in and slept. I was even saying Jo Ann you got up out of bed, at least do something..walk away the pounds, tae bo or something But no, the bed won this argument by saying, remember how soft and warm I am. You Bet!! Crawled right back in and slept for another hour. I have plans though, great plans and come March 1, 2006 I will implement them. Right now, Im psyching myself up!

I hope you all have a great weekend. IP

Short term goal: I will be 39 on July 28, so I would like to lose 39 pounds by then..more would be great.

Just came back from the store stocking up for my life journey. What they say is true...everything you need is on the sides and back of the supermarket. I had to go down two aisles one get some wheat bread and the other for some rice. Everything else was in the fruit/vegtable area and the meat area.

I'm kinda nervous about starting this because I want IT so bad and I don't want to let myself down...and I know how hard it will be. Here's to tomorrow and all the next days to come.
