Goals for January

Posted by: sgregg In: Monthly Goals

Ok.  It’s time to set some new goals.  I don’t want to go overboard since I’ll be getting back into the swing of things.  I don’t want to start an exercise routine right now since my life is so hectic when school is in session.  I think I want to focus on food and drink.  [...]

December Weigh-In

Posted by: sgregg In: Weekly Weigh-Ins

Well, I finally did an official weigh-in.  The last time I weighed and recorded was in June.  I weighed 214.6 then.  I’m at 215.  So, it’s good to know that I’ve been maintaining and not gaining.  I knew that I had to be about the same because my clothes all fit the same.  I can [...]

I’ve realized that if I stay busy during the day then I tend to eat less.  I knew this, but I never voiced it out loud.  The last couple of days I’ve tried staying busy and I haven’t wanted to snack very much.  However, I’m still wanting to snack between 3 or 4 if I [...]

Weigh-in Today!

Posted by: sgregg In: Weekly Weigh-Ins

My scale was being stubborn this morning and wouldn’t give me the same number every time (I usually step on it a few times in a row to see if I get the same number).  So, I just went with the lowest one.  214.4!  That’s a pound down from last week.  And that’s what I [...]

What a long day…

Posted by: sgregg In: Getting healthy| Life ramblings

It seems like so much has happened today…I’m not tired at all and it’s 11:07pm!  Anyway, I guess my energy is contributed to the amount of calories I have eaten today.  I met my mom and sister in the city today and my sister wanted to eat at Olive Garden.  So, I met them there [...]

The scale was down! Yay!

Posted by: sgregg In: Getting healthy| Life ramblings

I’ve been weighing daily and my scale has been down the past 2 days since I started back paying attention and counting my calories.  It’s a good feeling to see it go down.  Makes me want to stay on track.  It’s good to see hard work paying off.  I’m only 3.8 lbs away from my [...]

Home Sweet Home!

Posted by: sgregg In: Getting healthy| Life ramblings

We made it back home today.  Baby Girl had it rough Wednesday, but she was a trooper yesterday.  She didn’t go to sleep to easily Wednesday night at the hotel.  She was just out of her norm.  Yesterday was MUCH better.  She took naps in the room easily and she went to bed last night [...]

215.4 today.
I really need to step it up.  My next reward goal is 210.  I have been so close, but then I just get to where I don’t care and just eat whatever and I go back up.  I’m going to do better today.  I hate thinking about it though.  It seems like the more [...]
