Weight: 207.0

 Hey everyone! It's been awhile! I am back now! =) I got very sick and lost 8 pounds in 1 week cause I couldn't eat ANYTHING but I wasn't throwing up just not hungry and headache, fatigue and just wanting to sleep all day and night. I gained about 3 pounds of it back because I started eating again but I am back on the wagon! I am starting the 30 day ab challenge tonight and I really wanna try out a Zumba class but no one will go with me...=( So i have seen a few videos on youtube and this one instructor I like the music she has and the dances as well. So I might try some of those out in the basement lol

Good plan for the day Em! Be careful with cutting your calories too low, that can actually stall your loss. Have a good one.

hollybelle on 02/08/2014:
When I HAVE ro have something sweet Cereal is not a terrible choice. I usually go for Reece's puffs, but I get the store brand. I have to be VERY careful to only eat a cup or so - 'cause it's too easy for me to eat 1/2 the box!!! LOL! 1,000 cals is so low - glad you upped it! Have you ever used one of those on-line calculators for weight loss. You put in your age, your weight - your goal weight and your (realistic) activity level and it will tell you how many cals you can have. Kind of neat. you can google one or there is one on sparkpeople.com

 Hello everyone, I hope everybody enjoyed their holidays and into the New Year. Well, my work schedule got changed for the better! I can now workout at a decent time of the day. I work 12-8 on monday and have tuesday and wednesday off, then 9-5 thurs-sun. So hopefully with this I can lose this weight. Nobody at my age being a female should weigh that much. It's time to get down to business and lose this, so I can gain much more in health! I need to go to the dr to get some blood work done, to see my levels. I know I have HIGH CHOLESTROL! But everytime I eat like pasta or pizza I get sick, so I think I might have a gluten intollerence so I am going to TRY to eliminate MOST of the gluten from my diet as much as possible. Well that's all I got to say today. Be back tomorrow everyone! BTW it's supposed to be a snowstorm here and I don't want it!!!

Keep plugging away--have a great 2014!

Good that you're exploring the gluten intolerance possibility. I know of someone who as a teenager became a world-class athlete and was always having stomach issues. She found out in her mid-20s that it all went away with the absence of gluten. (I don't know if she actually had true celiac.) Gluten presents a subtle sensitivity in some people enough that when they eliminate it, they just feel better. Headaches go, joint pain and other symptoms are diminished or completely go away.

Maria7 on 01/05/2014:
Wow...a snowstorm. We don't get much snow here in the south. When we do, even if it is very little, it is a very big deal for us. Usually we get excited over it cause it is usually gone the next day or 2! :-)
