Headed to the gym

Well I decided today I would go to the gym. I haven't been there since I had trouble there and almost fainted. Scary moment to say the least. But today is a new day and I'm off to the gym.  Enjoy your day

September 14 2009

I had a pretty decent day! I ate within my points even though Patrick Swayze died.

I ate some leftovers and worked on office work so I was up late, but I was able to stop eating after I made dinner and had a snack!

Just wanted everyone to know I had a good day!

Let's eat and be healthy!

Okay, I spent some time to update this site. Here are the changes:

  • Updated Weight Tracker (Found on the left side of the blog)
  • Updated the Weight Tracker/BMI tracker (located on the bottom of the page)
  • Added a countdown (Gave myself 1 1/2 years to lose 118lbs). DELTED FOR NOW AS IT WILL NOT HOLD THE DATE!!!! BUT I STILL HAVE A TIMELINE!
  • Added a section for comments! (Now your comments will show up on the left side)

Stop by and say hi!

No new photos as I'm at 317.8 and the last pic was 318. A couple of weeks!

Good morning everyone,

I'm going to reflect on yesterday. Really didn't do much, except I did some necessary laundry, which I will need to finish later today.

I made breakfast out of some meals I made last week, that need to be eaten up.

Then for lunch I had some ww meatloaf I made.

For dinner, I really wanted pizza, so I got one. I had some slices last night, and only went over into my WPA's for 4 of them. I ate 2 slices this morning, because I love cold pizza. I'm throwing the rest away, as to be honest I have never done that before. NSV

I watched football yesterday and Notre Dame got beat by Michigan last minute to lose. Anyways today is a new day, and we will see how it goes. I'm already 12 points down for the day!

Well I hope you all have a GREAT one!

September 11 2009

Here I am another day, and another day, I need to lose. What is the focus today? Todays focus is the PRIZE! Today I need to keep focusing on the fact with weight loss, I can do more, live longer, and healthier! I don't know about you but that is a FANTASTIC prize. As you know I'm 26 years old, and in a few years like 5 (LOL) I might want a kid. When that time comes, I need to be healthier so I can assist in taking care of him/her, and ensure that I can live a long life to enjoy my family!

I am focused on staying on plan, and eating right. Yesterday I ate 8 filling foods, maybe 9 today. That is the goal. Well I'm off to get ready for work. This is a bit shorter because of the 9/11 Tribute. Had to do it.

Let's eat and be healthy!


September 11 2009~9/11 Tribute!

Today is probably one of the sadest moments in America's history. Today marks 8 years since the horrific crashes of the Twin Towers, and the Pentagon. So many lives were cut short on this day. I was talking about this with a colleague of mine. What were people thinking that day when they saw that plane coming...I know my thoughts would have been "Oh Sh*t" as that is probably all they had time to think before the impact. I know my cousin was suppose to be in the Tower that day, but his meeting was canceled. It is amazing how that happens, as if it had only happened for so many more people that day. Many will grieve today, some will cherrish the memories, and some will keep fighting to keep us free. I ask you take a moment out of your busy day, and pray for the safety of our service men and women who continue night and day to fight for our FREEDOM. While you are at it pray for strength of those families who have been affected by this tradegy. We must UNITE!

God Bless America

September 10 2009 Part II

Today was my girlfriends weigh in. Well anyways as I had mentioned I lost 2.6lbs which was 0.8% of my total weight. She lost 3.2 lbs and that was 1.2% of her weight. She beat me so I guess I have to pony up for a gift for her. I had to say there is always mixed feelings when she wins. First and foremost I'm very proud of her, and happy she lost the weight. I just hate losing....LOL....but I love the challenge. Anyways I have a partial idea of her gift. I can't tell ya what it is just yet as she sometimes reads this.

I think we both had fantastic weeks! My ww meeting is Saturday so I get to see my old team leader, I just don't count that weigh in, as I have always used wednesday as my wi day since 09/08. I can't believe I started weight watchers about a year ago. I just wish I didn't take a break from it. I could be close to goal. Yet I'm pretty much back to where I started.

Anyways football is on, so I will get going so I can watch some!

Have a great night!

Good morning everyone,

Well I was able to get up before 8am with the help of my dear girlfriend. We are in a long distance relationship as I have taken this new job in Indaina. She is working dilgently to be able to move out here, but she has to sell the house, and find a job. Not two of the easiest things to do in life. I set the alarm for 6am and she called me. It only took me 24 minutes to get out of bed. Not bad! I'm hoping that with me being able to get up earlier that I can get more accomplished at work, and will not have to stay as late. I go to work at 9am usually and stay there till 6 or 7pm. I know this isn't bad hours, but I'm hoping if I can get in by 8am then I will be out by 5 or 6pm. With winter/fall coming I'm trying to enjoy the gym membership that I'm paying for. The dilemma is that when I don't get home till 63o-730pm and I have to make dinner and what not then I don't want to work out that late. I certainly don't want to be eating dinner at 10pm-11pm. Yikes.

Well off to get ready for work!

September 9 2009

Well I have been super busy, but am back on track. So where have I been?

I started back on Weight Watchers back on August 5 2009. Since then I have been on plan for a month. I have lost 9.2 lbs since then and am down 20.2 lbs since originally joining weight watchers. I have decided that I can't keep going back. I originally lost 59 lbs in 4 months. I gained back about 50lbs in 4 months. Well that is exactly what happens when you go away from the lifestyle that you have one point decided to follow.

I have been very active recently within the last 2 weeks with the Weight Watchers Boards. I have been very active in the 20+ year old board. I have met a bunch of nice ladies in there.

Yet there is nothing better than my readers.

My girlfriend and I started a challenge back about 6 weeks ago. Where who ever lost the bigger % would receive a prize from the individual that didn't lose as much. Anyways we have had 5 weeks of competition and I have won 3 and she has won 1 and we both gained one week so there was no prize exchanged. I lost 2.6 lbs this week, so she will have to lose at least probably 2 lbs to beat me. I wish her luck, but I feel good about this, I have been really good this week, as I have tracked everyday vs her not tracking. I helped her figure out all her points tonight. I hope she gets back on track this week.

Well how is everyone doing going into the fall season. I bet many of us could have fallen off the wagon during the summer as it is easy to do with vacation. It is now time to get back on track, and start to focus your eye on the prize and that is weight loss.

I have started Weight Watchers meetings on Saturday so technically I have two weigh in days. I try to be good for this wi, but not as good as my Wednesday weigh in since it is part of the challenge. I really have enjoyed my meetings, and look forward to getting to know other people at the meetings. I sometimes think I might go to the two different locations as they are so much different and offer different ideas.

Well I have to let you know about the new Weight Watchers 150 Classic Recipe Book. It is fabulous and I have enjoyed my $10.00 purchase very much. I recommend you purchase it for your home as well. Anyways some of my favorites are the Chili, Oven Roasted Chicken, Salisbury Steaks, and Loaded Mashed Potatoes. I can't stop talking about this cook book. One of the best in my opinion.

Well I think we have caught up. Be sure to stop by and say hi, and let me know how you are doing.
