56 lbs lost so far

Hey luvs. I have lost a total of 56 pounds since I had my son 4 months ago, and being 412 pounds. Like I said last journal...I am back at it after recovering. Did only 21 minutes of exercise yesterday on my lunch break because I was running behind schedule, but it still made a world of difference. I will be doing anywhere between 20 to 30 minutes of exercise a day everyday mon through fri. I can't say for the weekends because those are my rest and down days usually and its kinda hard to get outta that habit...but we will see. I am transforming so who knows. I'm down 2 pounds since getting back on it from not doing much for a week.

340's I'm coming for you!

Back after a week of Sedentary

So I am back in action after a week of being pretty much sedentary besides Monday as I had to recover. Today, I will be resuming my exercise routine going home on my lunch break and exercising for 20 to 25 minutes on the treadmill. I am not really looking forward to doing it because sedentary feels so great, but I know that this journey is one that I refuse to quit or give up on until I am at my goal weight. I am currently 358lbs and am ready to take on the 350s and move on down to the 340s. Let's Go!

Hey all. Just quickly checking in. I am still on the prowl...just had a minor setback that I had to deal with this past week which has left me quite quiet at home recovering. But nonetheless, I am here and still trying to eat well under the circumstances. I should be back to myself in a few days and back at it with eating right and exercising. For now, I am just eating right...or trying should I say.

The Up and Down Battle - Stay Strong

So I did exercise yesterday but I did not eat as well as I would have liked. Went way over my calorie intake just for one of my favorite home made treats, rice krispy treats. So I didn't lose anything and I am sure it was a small set back. But nonetheless, that does not stop me. You know my motto, Every day is a new day to start over! So here I am on that new day to reevaluate my calorie intake. Today I am shooting for under 1500 calories to make up for yesterday. Having these moments can make you feel sad or want to give up but the point of this journey is to experience the ups and downs, but make sure there are more ups than downs, and to reach the ultimate goal. No goal is ever reached without a little setback. Am I right? Now let me not have another set back for at least a year. LOL Here's to a great dieting and exercise day for us all!

Sometimes you have to do things you DON'T want to do

In life there are things we all do that we don't want to do. We go to work everyday, we compromise with our spouses, we wake up instead of sleeping in, etc. There are so many things we do because we NEED to do them and not because you WANT to do them. As I sit here in pain because of exercising for these past 8 days, I realize I do not want to exercise today. I mean are you kidding me? I thanks.....

BUT...and this is a big BUTT if you will....I need to exercise. LOL. I need to exercise today on the treadmill at lunch for 30 minutes because I WANT to lose weight. I want to lose a tremendous amount of weight in a year. So, I have to do things that I particularly do not want to. So I will push through, pain and all, and pop a Motrin after I am done and come right back to work like nothing ever happened.

But ask my body, ALOT has happened. Well, I guess my motivation will be the fact that I have lost 12 pounds since starting to walk on the treadmill everyday for 30 minutes last Monday...and today is only Tuesday. I told my body this, and it doesn't care....well, at least not yet. But it of these days will thank me.

Wish me luck!

Hey all, Follow My Blog.

Happy Friday - TGIF

Happy Friday all! Weighed in this morning a half a pound less and can I say THANK GOD cuz I surely ate that whole Subway steak and cheese sandwich and it was DELISH! I was only going to eat half for dinner but couldn't resist. I figured it would be a good way to see how my body responds in the morning even though I was still under my BMR and did my 30 minutes of exercise. I know usually I would have gained simply because I didn't exercise, but this time the results were different. Nonetheless, I am looking forward to a nice weekend once I get through this work day. Kids are gone and I'll be focusing on cleaning and relaxing this weekend, not forgetting exercise of course.

Happy Friday Eve

Great day ya'll. It's Friday eve and I am thrilled. After a long work week filled with meetings and long days and nights, I can't think of anything better than a weekend of rest. My 2 sons are going to their grandparents (my in laws) for the weekend, which leaves me with a day to myself as my husband goes to work on Saturday, and a day for just the hubby and I on Sunday. It's been a minute. And although I'll probably spend this wonderful "me time" cleaning on Saturday...I will do so knowing that it is only adding to the wonderful movement and exercise I have been doing that has me successfully losing weight. So, I weighed myself this morning and I am down a solid 3 pounds!!!! And yes, I am a daily weigher. What can I say? I'm a need to know like right now type of gurl. So I am 360 pounds and about the hit the 350s for the first time in about 3 years when I was doing Medifast (see previous blog entries). I feel a huge transformation in the near future!!!
