The Struggle has not changed...

I feel like a broken record... And I have come to terms with the fact that my weigh loss struggles are because of ME and only ME. I am the problem!

It only took me like forever to come to terms with that fact! But There are so many reasons for me to lose weight... 

~ I really do want to avoid getting diabetes. 
   Many many people in my family have it... and I don't want to get it.
~ I think my body would feel 85% better if I lost the weight that I want to lose. 
~ I would be able to do more things without tiring out... 
~ I would just be healthy all together. 
~ I would finally feel good/happy about myself... this is a huge reason.

I mean don't get me wrong. Being overweight, I have had to finally get to the point where I figured out how to love myself the way that I am... but I want to try on clothes and not get sad because of this or that. I want to be able to shop at more stores and be able to wear cuter clothes. I know me being more healthy is more important that me feeling cute in clothes, but its all a struggle. 

I am currently doing weight watchers. It is going. I have lost 1.8 lbs so far. I welcome any loss... whether it is small or big. As long as the gain isn't there, I celebrate! 

Stay tuned to my recipe page. I will be posting some good recipes I have tried and loved. Quite a few of them will be weight watchers. Some will be the old smart points, so you will want to figure out the new freestyle points. 

I turn 40 in a little less than 2 years. That is my goal. I would love to be at my goal weight by then. That is just me losing 1.9 lbs a week. I know some weeks I will achieve that and some won't. I have a big goal and lots of dreams. And the only one stopping me, is ME!

Coming soon...

I thought I would create my own website and it would be a better option for what I wanted to do with my blog. It was not however... I am coming back to blogger, but I am working to getting all pages together and ready to start posting.

Hang in there... I will be back soon!

The struggle is still real...

I am still struggling on the weight loss, but I am on the right path!

I found some great new tennis shoes by Brooks and found a wonderful insert as well to help with my plantar fasciitis. I wore them for the 2 hours they recommend yesterday and my foot did not HURT at all. It was wonderful. I can't wait to be able to walk more in them and get a moving to help with the weight loss.

I will not give up... it is just not falling off like I have had it do in the past with other diets!!! Of course they weren't the best of diets then to do....

Just chugging along...


I decided at the beginning of the month that on the 20th I would start slim fast. It is a shake in the morning and one for lunch and a decent dinner. You can have 2 snacks in between around 100 calories. Week one has gone and observations from it: I AM STARVING after the shake. I have adjusted it a little. I will do the shake in the morning and then an hour later I will have a waffle by itself and then lunch and a snack shortly after. I have 24 days of slim fast on hand and it will not go to waste. I will keep it going and adjust as I see the need and hopefully things start feeling better!

Its one day at a time and I won't give up and I will keep going, but something has to give. I am not expecting it to be easy at all, I just need it to be manageable while I go...

The STRUGGLE IS REAL!

I have been having a really hard time getting motivated to get back into the rhythm of some program. I have tried weight watchers and I am just not sticking with it. I have decided that for the ease of things I am going to try slim fast. I tried it once before but I stopped it after a few days. I am going to do the drinks/shakes in the morning and for lunch and then have a good meal in the evening trying to stay under 500 calories.

I am also going to add walking or bike riding to my work out routines starting on the 20th. My daughter will be home and we can do that once we get home...

It is the hardest thing I have ever done, but I need to lose weight for so many reasons health wise and it can help with so many issues I am having.

I am going to give it a good month or so to see if it will be the program I need to stick with and then go from there. Sometime has to give here.

Wish me luck!

Slacking...

I am slacking on this lately...

I have gained 10 lbs back of the 21 that I have lost so I am in a struggle of getting my mind back into the weight loss journey. I will get there... just a lot going on with being a coordinator of a group that I am in called MOPS. That ends for me June 9th. After that I feel like the craziness will pass and I can focus more on me and getting where I need to be.

I did however take a 6.16 mile bike ride on Sunday. It was fun. It did make my husband and I realize that we need new bikes for the kids. They have both out grown their bikes that we got last year. How crazy is that. I mean I get it, but wow.

So, right now I am just in crazy mode of being overwhelmed... bare with me... the workouts will be shortly and the process will also continue to go down in lbs.

Weigh in

Today I did not weigh in. My mom is here on vacation and we have gone out to eat more than normal.  I will get back on track starting Tuesday.

I have plans to get more exercise and get moving more. It will just take time to get in a routine.

How are you doing?
