Didn't do too bad. I consider it a success if I don't have any sweets. I didn't have any sweets yesterday, including hot chocoalte and I didn't have seconds at dinner. I worked yesterday so it was a lot easier to control what I eat. It's so hard when i'm at home and it's so easy to just go grab something to eat. I also notice I don't eat a real meal. I kind of piece eat all day and probably end up eating more than if I just sat down and ate a whoel meal.

Didn't do too great today. I guess it could have been worse. I didn't really exercise but I spent most of the day shopping and cleaning. We did go out to lunch but I didn't order a huge meal like I usually do. I think portion control is going to be important for me. We did have hot chocolate when we got home but it is so hard to resist when it's so cold outside. I only did one cup though. I can do it if I limit myself to one cup a day. Other than that I didn't have any sweets:)

Still at it

I know i've not posted lately but I am still working on my goals. I've lost 8 pounds so far. It's not nearly as much as I wanted to by now. I know it's just going to get harder with the holidays coming. It's also going to be difficult to motivate myself to exercise because my favorite form of exercise is going on a walk with Bobby or with my iPod. Right now it's just too dang cold and there's a few inches of snow outside. That's just going to get worse too. I guess I need some motivation. I'm really down about things right now.
Don't tell Bobby I told you (he never reads my blog) but we are trying to get pregnant again. It was such a hard decision. I'm down right now because I was really hoping we could get pregnant by Christmas, but that's not going to happen, mother nature called yesterday:( We decided to wait to tell even my family this time until we have had a confirmation ultra sound from the doctor. Even if I do get pregnant before Christmas I won't be far enough along for an ultrasound.
Oh well, i'm excited to be off track. Maybe we can still go walking in the cold. We'll just have to bundle up and then i'll get all sweaty under my coat and my face will be freezing. Then we'll get home and Bobby will want to make hot chocolate and i'll drink more calories than I burned off because I could only stand to be out there for 10 minutes!
Bah! I'm making myself more frustrated the longer I think about it. I just need to find a way to re-motivate myself. I can be good until Thanksgiving. Maybe if I can do that then I can let myself have a free day. Now i'm trying not to think too much about the amazing chocolate pie and pecan pie my mom makes!
I'm also going to have to suck it up and either go to the gym or deal with the cold and go on my walk. Well, at least i'm off track for a few weeks. I always find much more time to work out when i'm off track. The problem is controlling the eating. I can do it though. I can make it until next Thursday. I'm just going to keep saying that until it becomes true. Only 10 more days to get through until then. Maybe i'll commit to post every day until then. I will confess what I ate each day and how much I worked out. If I can be good until Thanksgiving I will let myself eat guilt free until Thanksgiving.

Week 4 update

Okay the problem with this morning's weigh-in is that I took a sleeping last night. I was so groggy this morning that I don't remember exactly how much my loss was this morning but i'm pretty sure it was  a little more than 2 pounds. So, i'll just put two to be safe.
I'm pretty happy with that. This last week has been so stressful I was really worried about what my weigh-in was going to be. I don't usually take sleeping pills, I don't like them. But I really needed to. Last week was so stressful I didn't get much sleep. I knew this week wasn't going to be any better so I knew I needed to take something last night to get some good sleep. It really did help. I slept great. I just have a hard time getting up in the mornings. I have a hard time with that anyway so it wasn't really too different.
I am hoping to be a bit more active this week. I ate pretty healthy last week but I didn't work out much. I will do better this week. I already have a walk planned with Bobby tonight.

Week 2 and 3 update

Well, a loss is a loss I guess. Not the best two weeks but seeing as how crazy these two weeks were i'm just happy for the loss. I didn't actually weigh in for week 2 because I was so sick so i'm not sure how it actually worked out but I do know that i'm down a bit from two weeks ago.
I'm back to work now so I expect that it's going to be harder for me to find the time and energy to work out and easier for me to eat better. I eat so much healthier when i'm not at home where all the food is. I make sure to bring healthy food in the morning so that is the only choice I have to eat all day.

Week 1

Down 2.6 pounds! Yay!!!
It's not the 10 pounds I was hoping for but I really didn't think I was going to lose anything so i'm way happy with that. I think my problem is that the TV show The Biggest Loser makes me think I should be able to lose 10 pounds a week.  But what I have to remember is that they have professional trainers and they are working out like all day long and have a kitchen stocked with healthy food. I did great working out last week but my diet still needs some work.
I did my walk Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Tuesday and Thursday I did some strength training and yoga. On Saturdays i'm trying to get Bobby to something fun and active with me. This week he chose to play games on the wii fit. That was pretty fun. I even went on a few walks in the evening with Bobby last week. I found it really easy to be more active.
Eating healthy does not come easy to me. It is so much easier to just grab a burger than it is to stay home and make something healthy. But, we went shopping on Friday and got some healthy stuff so I actually ate much better this weekend. I plan to do much better this week too. As long as I don't make another batch of brownies I should be fine:)
My goal this weeks is another 2.6 pounds.

Weight loss surgery

Bobby and I were talking about weight loss surgery the other day (don't worry he wasn't encouraging me to do it or anything). I've just always felt like if I were to go that route than it meant I was a failure because it meant I couldn't do it on my own. I'm not anywhere close to going that route right now. I think there are many things I haven't tried before I even think about that. I know thought that there are some people that really can't lose weight and have great success with weight loss surgery. How do you guys feel about it?
