Hey, hey, looky at the weight thingy over there! Finally in 150's land. So how's everyone this morning? I'm trying something different with my schedule this morning. Usually I'm on the treadmill by 6:45am but the sun isn't up yet then so I have to keep the window blinds closed and the overhead light turned on so I can see. Don't want the blinds open with the light on, then everyone passing by could see in, ya know? Anyways, this morning I'm going to start walking on the treadmill at about 7:30 when the sun is at least starting to come up so I can have the blinds open. Then I will eat breakfast before I take a shower. Usually I shower first, then eat. This is all so that I can watch Regis and Kelly at 9am, haha! I just love that show and it's such a habit to watch it while I eat my breakfast. I know, you're not supposed to eat in front of the TV but I do, so there! Anyway, all this probably doesn't make much sense but there it is.

So yesterday was a pretty good day. I ended up eating more though and using up the rest of my flex points since it was the last day of my week. Today I start out fresh with 22 regular points (I had been only starting with 20 all this time, sheesh) + my exercise points + whatever flex points I may or may not use (35 for the week) Oh, and I did get some exercise in yesterday, 30 minutes on the bike and my leg exercises. I did that after I got home from having the MRI. The MRI went well, it took a whole 40 minutes in that thing. Good thing I was able to use the open MRI. I never knew I was claustrophobic until I had my first MRI several years ago. So that's over. I guess I'll find out soon if anything turned up there.

Okay, time to get on that treadmill, then do the upper body exercises. I'll talk to you all tomorrow. Have a great day!

Good morning! I just got up. It's almost 8am here. No exercise this morning because I didn't have time anyway since I have to leave here soon for the WW meeting. I guess I could have fit it in somehow but I figure that it would be too hard to do the exercise, shower and have my hair dry before I need to leave. So I went back to bed for an hour and a half. I'll try to get it in later but this afternoon I have an appointment for an MRI on my neck. So today may just have to be a day off.

Yesterday was a very good day. I had 24 points, only one flex point. And that's about it for that. I haven't weighed yet this morning. Okay, not much to say today. I'll see ya tomorrow.

shellybelly on 01/13/2004:
Sounds like ur doing great! Keep it up! Good luck with ur MRI.....those things scare me.Take care!

Good Monday morning, everyone! Well, what a morning! I have finished my exercise but just barely! First I got up at 6, made the DH's breakfast and then got back in bed! I laid there for a minute and then forced myself to get back up! That was hard! I got dressed and onto the treadmill finally but it just seemed so hard this morning. My legs felt like concrete and I was so tired. So I only did 2 miles and had to really force myself to do that. Then did some stretches and my ab and arm exercises with weights. And here I am. I'm having this awful pain in my lower left side, I guess I strained something while doing the ab crunches, OUCH! Darn, I hope it goes away.

Yesterday was not a very good day. I did keep track of my points though and wrote everything down. I ended up using 16 of my flex points. So I have 12 left for this week, which ends after tomorrow. I'm making my week go from Wednesday through Tuesday. Anyway, I really don't like using all those flex points. And my weight is the same today. Still waiting for the "whoosh fairy". Oh, and I never did get to any exercise yesterday and even took a nap in the afternoon. Bad day!

Okay, I'm really ready to go back to bed now but I will head for the shower instead. Besides my sheets are in the washer, hahaha! I'm going to do a lot better today though. And I hope you all have a good day too. Take care and I'll see ya tomorrow.

Indievegan on 01/12/2004:
We all have days we would rather stay in bed. Good job sticking with it even when your body (or mind) was telling you to go back to sleep! Keep up the good work!

jmer on 01/12/2004:
Days like these suck don't they..when you just wanna lay in bed but you know your butt is better off getting up....good job beating the stay in bed attack...

So how are you all doing this fine Sunday? As soon as I finish with this I will go check up on you all. Well, today is a strange day. I slept in til 8 this morning so no exercise yet. And the way the day is going I just may not get any later either. I'm feeling so lazy today. Day 9, BTW. I guess I really shouldn't keep track of what day it is, after all, this a lifetime thing not just daily. Anyways, so far I only have 3 points left for the day and I haven't even had lunch yet! Not good. But I can use those flex points of which I have 28 left for the week and 2 days after today left in my week. But I think the binge is out of my system now and the rest of the day should be better. And I have written everything down and kept track of the points. I think I may even take a small nap later too, it's just kind of one of those kind of days. Oh, and I didn't make it to church this morning either. I feel bad about that. Maybe next week.

Okay, sorry to bring everyone down today. Lazy ole me will just go now. See ya tomorrow.

ClearOcean on 01/11/2004:
I have had days like yours and i know how easy it is to give up. I guess flex points comes in handy for these days. I am doing the winning points. I don't trust myself with the flex points it would give me too much freedom.

gonnajustdoit on 01/11/2004:
ryn: thanks for leaving it. and god needs to watch over me right now, this is alot harder then losing weight. and it seems very easy putting on this weight lol just hope its easy taking it off ( i know its not) take care

Look, look, I'm finally losing! Day 8 for me. And still going strong. How are you all doing? Great, I hope. Funny, the 2 days I've been losing, I've been over on my points a little. I think maybe it's trying to tell me something. What do you think? Anyways, I just finished doing 2.5 miles on the treadmill (yay, me!!) in 46:36, that includes a 3 minute warm up and 3 minute cool down. I didn't put in any hills though, I'm just trying to increase my speed and length of time. Then I did some stretching and my leg exercises. The squats and lunges are getting easier for me too. I can keep my balance better now. So I'm off to a great start today.

My Valentine's Day Challenge thing is to journal all my food and keep track of all the points even if I go over. Usually when I have a bad day, I just quit writing it all down and then I really go way over. So that's my goal for the Challenge. Just wanted everyone to know. And this does keep me on track too.

Yesterday was pretty good too. I only went over by 5 points so I'm taking that off my flex points for the week. I did really well at the Red Lobster for dinner. I stuck with just what I had planned and felt really good about it. The only reason I went over by 5 points for the day was because for lunch I only ate an apple and banana but then I ate some baked chips and salsa and a granola bar I didn't really need. So that was the 5 points. I didn't do any more exercise yesterday except what I had done in the morning. So I consider it another good day.

Well, this feels really good to be doing things right finally. This should make it easier to keep it up. I know there will be bad days but somehow you just have to get through them. I'm also thinking that tomorrow I'm going to take the morning off from exercise and go to church finally. I haven't been in over a year or so and I do really miss it. I don't know how I got away from it. So that's the plan. I can always do something later in the day, like take a walk outside. Our weather is great here lately, going to 75 today, can you believe?! I love it!!

Okay, you all have a great Saturday. I'll see ya tomorrow.

ClearOcean on 01/10/2004:
I admire those like you who can go the distance, time and speed on the treadmill. I have degenerative knees and walk so slowly. Keep it up!

Happy Friday, everyone! Day 7 here and still going strong! I just finished doing a 2 mile walk on the treadmill and my arm and ab exercises. I love the smell of sweat in the morning! Ewwww! How are you all doing this fine morning? I didn't get to read all of yesterday's entries so I'm going to try to get caught up today. I really have a lot of books I should be reading but I just like coming in here to check on everyone.

Yesterday was another great day for me. I started out with that weight gain and just thought I would up my points some for the day to see if that made any difference. So after I ate a big breakfast I ate a couple of other things snacky and then I even ate lunch at 11am. Sheesh, I was on my way to a very bad day! But I did write everything down and kept track of the points all day. And since I had a doctor's appointment in the afternoon for my neck, I was out of the house all afternoon. So when I got home I changed into exercise clothes, ate a banana and headed outside for a walk. Ended up doing 3 times around the block for 2.1 miles. I ate a light dinner and did my leg exercises while watching The Apprentice last night. And I ended up the day only 2 points over--24 points altogether. I just about wore my arm out patting myself on the back, hahaha! So I'll just count the extra 2 points on my "flex points" of which we get 35 a week. Yayyy, me!

I will have a little challenge this afternoon though. I agreed to meet the DH at Red Lobster for dinner (he loves that place) after he gets off work. I have a date!! But don't worry, the plan is to eat a light lunch and only eat ONE garlic and cheese biscuit, a salad and maybe a couple of DH's shrimp at dinner. And drink LOTS of water. Trouble is, he gets off work at 3:30 so it will be a really early dinner. Usually I eat dinner at 6:30 so that I don't get too hungry before bed. Oh, well, I'll work it out somehow. Guess I can always eat low or zero points things for a later dinner too. And I'm going to take my own salad dressing since they don't have any diet-friendly salad dressing, do you believe! So I think I'll be okay.

Well, that's it for today. Don't forget, the Valentine's Day Challenge starts tomorrow. I'm ready, oh yeah! Bring it on! And you all have a safe and wonderful day, okay? Buh-bye!

Day 6 here for me. So far I feel I'm doing fantastic, if I do say so myself, hah! Then why did the scale show a gain this morning?! Who knows?! Not going to let it bother me though. Just keep on keeping on. But no exercise this morning, I went back to bed for a change. Just to break things up a little. But I plan on doing the exercise later. Oh, thanks for the tip, RBSz, I guess your idea worked, heh. But the scale went the wrong way, haha!

Yesterday was another good day---22 points. I did 30 minutes on the treadmill, 30 minutes on the bike and my upper body and abs work. Maybe my muscles are holding water??! Usually I lose a couple pounds the first few days. Confused!

Okay, I hope you're all doing well today. It really helps me to know I have to come in here and confess everything. So far it's making me stay on track. Thanks, guys! Take care and have a great day!

legcramp on 01/08/2004:
Keep up all that hard work! You're doing a fantastic job!! Stay strong and eventually that scale will change - you're probably just gaining muscle weight! And that's a good thing too! Have a great day yourself!

curvy shar on 01/08/2004:
It sounds like you are doing a great job! I love the positive attitude toward the scale - it will show a drop soon....I just know it! Hope the rest of your day goes well.

starlight on 01/08/2004:
Hi there. I've been wondering. How do you put your entries in color? Way to Go on the exercise. Good job! Kim

malh on 01/08/2004:
Sounds like you are doing an excellent job. THe scale will show the difference. Could be muscle gain. Keep up the good work

Well, here we are in the middle of the week already. Good morning! How's everybody doing? I just finished doing 30 minutes on the treadmill, only 30 since I have to leave at 10:15 for a doctor's appointment and I have to wait for my hair to dry. So I've already showered and washed my hair. Anyway, I'll do 30 on the bike later and also do my upper body work and abs. Wow, I'm tired already, I wonder how many calories taking a shower burns, hehe! It feels like work to me.

Yesterday I did 30 minutes on the bike and my lunges, squats and donkey kicks. No walk since I had the early WW meeting. I weighed in at 163.6, up 1.8 from last time *sigh*. My scale still says 161.8 for 5 days in a row. You'd think it would waver a tenth of a pound or two one way or the other, wouldn't you? Strange. And usually I drop a pound or two after the first few days, you know, that water weight thing. Oh, well! I'm patiently waiting for the whoosh fairy. I did very well again yesterday--22 points. It was a hard day, I felt more hungry more often than usual but I fought it off. Last night when I wanted to eat something, I sipped on a small bottle of diet V-8 Splash, mmmmmmm. I'll have to buy some more of that. No sugar, no fat and no points! Oh, and I did find the Dr. Phil food guide book at Target yesterday. Now I just need to read it. I have so many books I want to read now, I just have to find the time.

Okay, I think I'll go read a few entries before breakfast. Are we all ready for the Valentine's Day Challenge? I am! Get out there and have a great Wednesday, okay? I'll see ya tomorrow.

legcramp on 01/07/2004:
Great job on the exercise today! You're doing so well lately, keep it up! Darn WW scales. Way to get through that tough day yesterday - I know how hard it is to do! Well, I keep hearing about this Valentine Day Challenge and I still haven't read Curvy Shar's entry, so i'd better get my butt over there! I hope i'm not too late! Have a great day today!

garlic on 01/07/2004:
Good job hopping on that treadmill this morning. Great to get it out of the way before you start the day. That's the way to get it done. Yes, I'm up for the Valentine's challenge!!!!

RBSz on 01/07/2004:
Hi, one comment, one question: 1. My scale is electronic, and it seems to get "stuck" on the last number it read. So what you might need to do is pick up a bunch of heavy things and step on the scale so it gets a different number, then step on it again without the extra weight. Everytime they try to make something smarter, it introduces all kinds of new problems...... 2. What's the Valentine's Day Challenge? Good luck, it sounds like you are doing great with the exercising.

Nikitalee on 01/07/2004:
Hey! Great job yesterday staying on target. I hate those days when you can't seem to tame the cravings. What is Dr. Phil's food guide book about? I've heard about his first book and plan. . . is the second one recipes then? Hope you have a great day!

Scruffy on 01/07/2004:

you are doing so well. I need to get back here more often. It seems harder to fall off the wagon when I am here :-)

Stay consistent and you will lose, lose, lose ina great way :-)

Good morning! This will be short today, I'm pressed for time. Went back to bed for an hour after DH left for work, no walk this morning because I have to leave for the WW meeting in half an hour. So I will get on the bike later and maybe take a walk too.

Yesterday was another good day. I stayed within my points--23--did 2.25 miles on the dreadmill and rode the bike for 20 minutes. So all is going well. I just keep in mind that I really want to do it this time, I NEED to lose this weight. And after I've told everyone of my goals, I must succeed! I also did a lot of running around--went to WalMart, JC Penney's, Sam's and the grocery store. They didn't have Dr. Phil's food guide in yet so I couldn't get it. But I did find a good book about diabetes at the library and checked it out so I can learn more about that. Now I just need the time to read it, hahaha!

Okay, I hope you're all doing okay. I didn't get here to read entries yesterday so I'll try today. Have a great day!

BellaK on 01/06/2004:
I want to get Dr. Phil's food guide too! I am currently reading the 7 keys one and I'm loving it!! Happy New Year! Bella :o)

Happy Early Monday morning, everyone!! The start of a new week. It's day 3 for me here. So far I just got up and made the DH's breakfast and he's off to work. And I'm all ready to jump on the dreadmill. It's still dark here though, I hate these cold winter mornings. I don't want to turn on the light in the room where the dreadmill is, I have the blinds open and people going by would be able to see me then, ya know? So I guess I have to start walking in the dark, heh. So I'll do at least the 2 miles and then do the upper body weight work and abs. Oh, almost forgot, I made a mistake yesterday--I didn't do 2.5 miles on the dreadmill, only 2.25, sorry. Wishful thinking, I guess. The 2.25 just about killed me anyway.

So yesterday was another good day--22 points--and before dinner I did 20 minutes on the bike. I can't understand though, why the scale still reads the exact same thing! Usually I drop a pound or 2 right away, water weight, I guess. I guess the muscles are holding onto the water, ya think? Very interesting! And I'm doing so well too, no cheating. Of course, it's only been 2 days so I'll keep waiting.

Okay, I'm planning on having another good day. You know how you just know that this is it, this is the time I'm really going to make it? And then that little voice (d@#$% voice!) pipes up in your head, "But that's what you said the last time and the time before that. How do you know this won't be the same?" Somehow, I just know. I've put all my goals out there and lots of people know them so I have to succeed this time. I want to be able to come in here and write about how well I'm doing, how the weight is just falling off, haha, and not write about the cheating and failure all the time. This time I'm going to keep it up. We're going to look and feel fantastic this summer, right? Yeah, baby!

legcramp on 01/05/2004:
You have a great attitude for the new year! You're doing fantastic lately, and the scale will show it in time! Feeling good about yourself and about your life is the best scale you can find! Keep up the great work and you'll soon reach all your goals! You're a great inspiration, keep yourself motivated, girl!

squiggly on 01/05/2004:
I understand exactly what you are saying. We can do this and yes we are going to look and feel fantastic this summer.
