Weight: 160.2

Okay, I'm not in the 150's yet but I'm not surprised. This is what the scale does when you weigh every day. I had a good day yesterday, eating well and riding the bike for 30 minutes. I still haven't done anything today but the plan is to walk on the treadmill for at least half an hour. Although, there is a thought niggling my mind that says maybe I could take the day off from exercise since I already did 6 days in a row. But I guess if I want to get to those 150's tomorrow, I'd better do some work today, right? First---lunch. Then a little later---exercise. See ya tomorrow!

Yeah, I'm finally doing it!! I really think this time I'm going to make it into the 150's, maybe even tomorrow. Whoopee!! And I feel soooo good! But, of course, if the scale doesn't cooperate tomorrow, it won't bother me because I know that sooner or later I'm going to make it. 155, here I come! Only 4 weeks from today that we leave for Maui!! I have so many things that give me the incentive now. I just HAVE to keep it going!

Yesterday was a very good day---24 of 29 points allowed and 80 minutes at the gym for a total body workout! Today I WILL exercise and I have plenty of work to do around the house. And being so close to the 150's will keep me honest and on track!

Hey, what's happened to our friends Crittermama and that guy who was going on a cruise, can't remember his name? And I sure miss PastaGal. If any of you are out there reading, please come back. You are missed. And CharlieAngel, you too! And so many others that I can't remember their names right now. I hope everyone is doing okay. So you all take care and have a good Saturday. As for me, I'm off to have some brekky! See ya tomorrow!

Weight: 160.8

Happy Friday, everyone! I'm down another pound---again! Well, I've been at this weight about 3 times in the last couple of months and then went back up again. But---THIS TIME--I'm going to keep it going down! Wow, yesterday I made so many good choices when I really wanted something else, ya know? I was out shopping at the second hand store and, on the way home, I was so hungry I wanted to eat all kinds of things. I thought I'd stop in at Subway for a 6-incher, some chips and one of their chocolate chip cookies. But then I decided, no, I'd just get something in the grocery store for lunch since I had to get milk anyway. So I bought some of those Skinny Cow ice cream sandwiches (strawberry shortcake, yumm, 2 points) and when I got home, I had a bowl of Cheerios and FF milk with banana and one of those Special K bars. It was almost 3:00 by then. So I had another good day of eating. The only exercise I'd had was the shopping. About 3:30 I sat down in front of the puter and started to read entries here and thought, what am I doing, it's nice out, I should go for a walk. So I did! 30 minutes. It was about 75 degrees and sort of cloudy with a little breeze. Nice!

Okay, today---gym day, after I go see the doc at 10:00. And that's about it. I have lots of work to do around here if I get bored, haha. It's all cloudy this morning, chance of rain 50% and a high of about 68. Eat your hearts out! No, I'm sorry, I know about the bad weather some of you are going through right now. You have my sympathy. I'll see ya tomorrow. Have a good one!

Maria7 on 01/21/2005:

Congratulations on getting back to 160...now hold on, you're doing great.....and get into the 150's! You CAN do it...just make SMART CHOICES, don't overdo the exercise and it will happen!

Weight finally going down again, yet again!! Haha! This time it will keep going down and I WILL make it into the 150's finally! No real plans for today. I may head over to one of the second-hand stores. I went to one Tuesday and one yesterday, looking for T-shirts to wear to the gym. Tuesday I found some nice shirts but when I got them home and tried them on, they were all too small. Funny, when I held them up and looked at them in the store, they looked plenty big enough. And the ones that looked real big I put back, thinking they would be too big. Guess my estimates of my body are slightly blurred, huh? So I did find 2 yesterday but haven't tried them on yet but they do look plenty big enough. I readjusted my thinking. Anyway, I just may go to the third one today. I really should be staying home and getting some work done around here but it's so nice out I want to get out. DH is gone today with my sis and bil to a seminar on brain tumors at the hospital. I'm not really good at handling medical things. I used to have to leave the room when we saw a film of car accidents at driver's ed class back in high school. Heh. It lasts until 2:30 and they get free lunch. DH can't resist that, haha! He'll probably fall asleep during the seminar! So I'm alone today and you know, my first thought yesterday when I heard that he would be gone today was to head to McD's for breakfast. Why is it that when I know I'm going to be alone my first thought is junk food? It's such a natural reaction for me. But my next thought was "no, I can make a nice breakfast right here at home that won't break my momentum now". So I am changing some, right?

Okay, I wish you all as good a day as I'm going to have. The sun is shining and the temp should get to the upper 70's again. Woohoo! And don't think I don't appreciate this good weather here. I lived for 32 years in Ohio so I know how bad it can be! Take care and have a great day!

cowboy on 01/20/2005:
I do the same exact thing! I'm looking at myself now and thinking I look anorexic and I'm still in the 160's. It doesn't help that my family and friends can't believe my weight and always say I don't need to lose. My goal is 140 which I haven't seen in a long time.

Weight: 163.2

Three days in a row of the same weight!! What the heck is going on?! A small glitch in my scale maybe? DH weighed on it and it said the same thing for him as yesterday too. And I did all the tricks---like holding something heavy while weighing first to try to change the weight (sometimes they need that) but same, same, same. Well, no, holding something heavy first did get a different reading but when I got back on, it still said 163.2. Anyways I'm not letting it bother me any. I'm sure tired of these 160's ;(

Okay, I went to the gym after my "eyebrow" appointment. She told me to be very careful and not touch my eyebrows at all because there are so many germs there to pick up. That could cause infection. I was very careful but only did 1 mile on the track and all the weight machines I usually do. Not quite an hour total. But I think that's better than doing nothing at all. Yesterday I just did 30 minutes on the recumbant bike which came out to be a little over 10 miles. Not too bad! So far 3 days in a row of exercise. And I've been very good with the eating part too. Should see a drop on the scale soon.

I keep thinking of things like cupcakes (sorry for mentioning junk food). But I'm trying to fight it. There is no junk food in the house anyway. My old habits are so hard to break. I've been doing this for almost 8 years now, you'd think I would've changed by now. And I should have been to goal weight by now but I try not to think of that. At least I'm maintaining a loss of 35 pounds or so. Gotta think of the positive, right?!

So I hope you're all having a good day. Take care and stay strong!

Weight same as yesterday, in case you missed it. Nothing much going on. Exercise later today for sure. We watched The Village last night. Hmmmm. Not as good as the trailers made you believe. But okay. I had a great day yesterday as far as food goes---21 of 29 points. AND I ate veggies, yippee for me! Today more of the same. I got caught up on all your entries but, lazy me, no comments. I'll try more today, okay? Just know that I've been there and I'm rooting everyone on. Have a great day!

Weight: 163.2

Forgot all about coming on here yesterday. Not that I was too busy, I was soooo lazy yesterday. And I guess you could say Saturday too. As you can see on the weight gain. No exercise all weekend. What am I, NUTS?! Less than 5 more weeks until we go to Maui! If I can lose 2 pounds a week I would be overjoyed! But past behavior doesn't reflect that kind of dedication. Sheesh, I'm just going to try to lose as much as I can, keeping all that in mind. And I'm not going to slit my wrists if I don't make it. Maybe getting to 155 would be doable. That would make a nice improvement. So it's onward and downward!

I did get back on the exercise wagon today. Did 75 minutes of hard work at the gym, including 2 miles of walking on the track. And I felt great afterward! I hope to make it there on Wednesday and Friday too. I don't know about Wednesday, I'm getting more work done on my eyebrows again. It will all depend on how much needs to be done. I think they look pretty good already except for a couple of small areas that need to be filled in. Hopefully, she won't want to go over the whole thing. Anyways, that's the plan. Exercise, exercise, exercise!! I know now that if I don't, there's bound to be a gain waiting for me. So I will exercise every day the rest of the week, Wednesday being iffy.

Okay, hope you're all doing great. I haven't been here to read all weekend so will try to make up for that. Hang in there and have a good start to your week. Over and out!

Weight: 162.4

Up a little more but I deserve it. Bought 2 packs of Hostess cupcakes at Circle K when I went for the lottery tickets. They're gone now. Along with a few other things I really didn't need to eat. I'm just not getting with this, am I? But I did do 40 minutes of walking on the treadmill yesterday, hardly enough to make up for all I ate. Thus the weight keeps going up. DUH!! Hope to do better from now on. Thanks for the comments. See ya tomorrow!

Weight's back up, not a surprise! Oh, well. And I decided to stay home and exercise instead of going to the gym. I'll probably do the treadmill for as long as possible. But first I need to go to the store for a few things and get my lotto ticket, heh. Still trying to win those millions!

Okay, must get ready to go. Should be nice weather today--upper 60's and sunny. Have a good one! See ya tomorrow.

Good Luck on the lotto. If you win, you can pay for personal trainers and afford to have the healthy meals of those skinny stars! :-D

cowboy on 01/14/2005:
Try the stock market; I'm not kidding. I use www.sharebuilder.com and anyone can buy stock for $4.00 a trade and no inactivity fees! I bought sirius at .50 a share it went as high as 9.00 a share. You probably won't win the lottery, but if you take the money you spend on it, and buy some stock once a month, you might make alot of money. Hope I didn't sound like a stockbroker, keep going to the gym; missing a day now and then doesn't hurt anyone.

It may be up because of salt causing water retention...or carbs...

New number! That probably won't last, humph! No exercise, went to the casino with sis and bil. Yesterday we went to see Meet the Fockers with them and then to Macayo's for happy hour. We don't drink alcohol, iced tea, just eat the eats. I have had 3 no exercise days in a row. Not good. Okay, I'm late today but just had to report the weight. See ya!

Maria7 on 01/13/2005:
Looks like you're making progress...you're almost into the 150's...come on! You can do it!

As for exercise, that's something I want to get back to doing also....hope walking in stores counts, hehehe!

feeleebubs on 01/13/2005:
I've found that after I exercise and exercise and exercise, if I take a few days off, my weight tends to drop a bit because the muscles are not swolen any longer. Meet the Fockers was a cute movie. I saw it last weekend.
