Guess who’s back… oh yeah my stomach December 5, 2013

Filed under: *The weigh ins* — debi @ 9:26 am

well .. I don’t really know what to say other than wow i really let myself go. i mean i don’t know how i even got this far. it just started so slowly.. when i first started blogging. i reached 197 at my lowest.. i was feeling so awesome about myself. i was excersiing and loving it.. and i was out of the 200’s …..

here i am …. 267 i gained it all back plus some. all of my hard work. everything .. for nothing.

it’s so frustrating. but my sister is at the same spot. she is close to my number and we have put in a full commitment into restarting and doing this together so that’s where we are at right now. we have enrolled in weight watchers to see how it helps us. so 267 is my official weigh in as of 12/01/2013 . . it’s just so hard to jump back into this again. I remember when i would work out for 1.5 and feel like that wasn’t enough and that i wanted more. I was hungry for it!. now i went to the gym the other day and could barely make it a half hour. i feel pathetic and i hate it. I can’t believe that it happened.. but it did and all i can do is accept it and just move on and try to make the situation better.. that’s alli can do right.

 

Aww feelin good January 14, 2011

Weigh in today is 216.6 .. wahooooo. I think the reason why I lost so much weight this weak is because of all the water I have been drinking on top of my diet. . I NEVER drink water and obviously this week I started pushing it into me and dang look at that… that’s so exciting for me and I’m very happy with it.
Well today
Breakfast
1/2 cup of coffee
2 egg whites with half of a half of avocado
Lunch
1/2 ramen noodles w/green beans
Dinner
Chicken Breast with w.w roll and corn
Sounds good to me. However. I am very very nervous to see how this weekend treats me. I have nothing but trust in myself . Come on Deb. You did so good this week.. It’s time to stick with it.!

 

WA HOO January 12, 2011

Filed under: *The weigh ins* — debi @ 6:31 am

So I weighed in this morning at 219.6 , so I’m doing something right . Plus despite the fact that I have not been able to work out I will take that number with pride. !. I feel better. Like I know it sounds stupid and maybe it’s not a huge amount of weight I just feel better. I feel different and like I said I’m sure it’s just all in my head but still. .
Anyways. I am very proud of myself. Yesterday again I had an awesome day and it wasn’t even a struggle for me anymore. . I went home. I had a cup of w.w pasta with 1/2 can of tuna with light mayo and a bunch of water and I was full. . !! and I DID NOT go back into the kitchen the whole night . Lights off ment lights off. and that was the end of it. I was sooo happy at the end of the night when I was thinking about what I ate that day and it hit me that I drank my water. I didnt’ have any sweets, I didn’t eat anything off my plan AND I didn’t even have a diet soda !!! . I feel so good and I LOVE the fact that I’m not still struggling with my food choices. It feels great!
So whenever I get the money I am going to get some pilates videos and hopefully get that elliptical from my dad. . that’s going to be so nice . I’m excited.

Well today
Breakfast
1 Egg with 1/2 avacado w/coffee
Lunch
Oatmeal and clementine
Dinner
Chicken Breast with Brown Rice and Carrots.

Sounds good to me!!! Plus a bunch of water throughout my work day and maybe add a diet soda in with dinner. I rather have it at dinner than at work..!!!
~ Did anyone watch The Biggest Loser last night!!! Inspiring episode it was. I love that show!!

 

My offical starting over weight January 10, 2011

Filed under: *The weigh ins* — debi @ 7:19 am

alrighty. So I weighed in this morning and I’m at 224.8 Better than the 229 so I’ll take it. . Over the weekend I did soooooo much better than before. I had a few slip ups yes but nothing like previously so I will take that as a win and move forward with what I learned.!. . Moving Forward. So I have three work out videos that I’m going to start doing as of today. I have my Biggest Loser of course, Taebo, and body sculpt. I thought it would be a good idea to just alternate between them .. Spice things up a bit. lol as much as possible. Here is the food agenda for the day
Breakfast~
2 eggs w/ 1 slice whole wheat toast
Lunch~
Small chicken breast w/ brown rice
Dinner~
tuna w/ whole grain pasta- light mayo
Snacks~
Diet coke
baby carrots
Sounds good to me! . . and also a goal of mine is to work on my water intake, I hate water but love the soda so it’s becoming a problem. so time to step it up a notch and push in the water through out the day. My work has a water filter thing and it’s cold and crisp and it shouldn’t be a problem if I just keep reminding myself!! and also since of course I know that I have a sweet tooth I went and got the Nabisco 100 calorie packs and brought them to work because I know that’s when it hits me the hardest. Things at home are starting to get better. Because I have learned how to keep myself busy with stuff, cleaning, cooking, all kinds of stuff to get my mind off of food. I clean the kitchen sparkly clean and turn off the lights and just relax and get my mind to turn off , which turns it off of food.. sometimes. and It might sound weird but the more I diet the more I like to WATCH food . Like the food network. lol it all sounds so good and I just love food. Not that I have to eat it but just to watch it being prepaired some times is good for me. strange but whatever! .

Good luck everyone! Have a great day chicks~

So Weigh in- 207.8

Dang, I had already known that I would be in the 200’s again so I should have expected this.. Still doesn’t mean that number doesn’t hurt! lol .. It just makes me feel fatter just hearing that number again. I mean for the past few months that I have not been working out. I knew I wasn’t doing the right thing but I didn’t feel fat, I didn’t care. . But now after seeing that number .. it’s like a blow to the stomach and now just AFTER seeing that.. I FEEL it. when I put my shirt on this morning it felt tight, etc. I dunno if my mind is playing tricks on me but dang it didnt feel good. I was already feeling a little bit disapointed on how my night went. . . .

So yesterday for Breakfast I had some Coffee lunch I had a 6′ . 9 grain Turkey Subway Sandwhich with tons of veggies and light mayo.. Ok and here is where my DAILY biggest struggle comes in. Dinner… the name haunts me. haha anyways so After work I have to go get my girls from my baby sitter’s house and then I go take them to the gym day care at 6 and pick them up at about 730 .. ideally right? . . ya well I get there to get the girls and we chat , we conversate and what not and next thing I know it’s like 8 o clock. so I go home put the girls to bed and then what happens… I’m alone and get the munchies and want food. . So I broke, I had a bagel, lay’s cheddar chips and 1 pop tart.. like wtf.. I can’t understand how and why I do this.. This particular thing happens all the time. It’s at night when I’m home alone and my kids are asleep. It sucks.. and while it was happening I already knew it wasn’t a good thing. While enjoying my chips I kept telling myself “your going to blog about this tomorrow and your going to feel awful, and you already know your going to weigh yourself in the morning and you already know it’s going to be a bad number… ”

As I’m writing this it almost feels as if I’m sabatoging myself. . . . with the would have’s.. and the I can’t believe I gave up. I need to stop. I need to push and make myself do this for one week and I already know how good I’ll feel and How much I want to start up and feel good again.I already know how great it feels and I want that again. I just can’t seem to get my lazzy butt up!! ..I ditched last night saying tomorrow tomorrow.. Because of the weigh in in the back of my head I haven’t weighed in yet so why does it even matter.

I wish there was a pill to make me just fall asleep right after so I don’t even have to think about food. . Bla. . . One thing I also need to do is get the food out of my bedroom. The kitchen is upstairs and I’m in a new home so right now I feel weird going up stairs to get food .. it’s like ya the fat girl visits the kitchen tons of times so I usually keep some stuff in the drawers for my kids. But I need it out of there hence the “pop tarts” last night. :( bla I have to hide food from myself.. how sad.

I better go to the gym today. Come on Deb.. Remember how good it felt.. Give yourself at least a week.

 

Fridays, your always so good to me March 19, 2010

Filed under: *The weigh ins* — debi @ 6:31 am

Well weigh in is 193.0!!! YAY I am soooo excited and happy for that number.

However, lol… I am now TERRIFIED of the weekend to come. I don’t think i trust myself yet and I’m doing so good I don’t want this to be ruined. :( I wish I could just stay positive and for the time being I am but also I know myself when I’m home all weekend and around food and I can honestly say that I do not trust myself. I want to . I have been doing so good and come so far but the weekends are my weakness… I’m trying to come up with a plan but I just don’t know how to dodge the issues I always face. . I just keep telling myself my weight and I’m almost down to the 180’s and if I could get there.. god I would be soooo happy!! I still can’t even believe I’m almost to 180 when I used to be 230 .. crazy I tell you!

 

Back on it, with a few exceptions March 16, 2010

Filed under: *The weigh ins* — debi @ 6:03 am

Well I am very pleased to announce that I weighed in this morning *crossing my fingers that yesterday was just a bad fluctuation day* and I am back at 196.6 so I am happy for that, I also went grocery shopping and bought a bunch of healthy things to last me for awhile. I love that feeling because I know that I am controlling the food. I control what I eat and I control what’s in my house and knowing that I have all those good healthy yummy foods to rely on makes me feel even better.
So also yesterday when I got home from work I did The Biggest Loser wii interactive game and boy I did the light circuits with Jillian and that kicked my butt!!! It wasn’t as long as I wanted but after all the lunges and squats and mountain climbs , etc I was sweating and totally worn out so I would give it an A+. It makes me feel a lot better knowing that if I can’t get my butt up to go to the gym or if my schedule is too crazy I can do that at home and my husband actually did it with me too!!! and so it made it really fun actually!
So I am kind of disapointed that I did not go to the gym today. With my crazy schedule and stuff lately its so hard for me to pull my butt out of bed at 5 AM.. It starts to wear on you that’s for sure. So I have Rylee’s Dr.’s apt today and so I am hoping when I’m done maybe I can take the kids to the park or maybe even hit the gym or something. I think that’s what’s missing since food is good now, now it’s time to get the working out back on track. I can’t wait for the good weather so I can take my kids out with me and do stuff together as a family AND get my sweat on.
So last night I made some really yummy tuna salad. I love tuna and I love pasta. So I mixed whole grain noodles with Light miracle whip, and celery and packed it for lunch for today AND tomorrow.. bonus ! lol . I also went and bought some of the 100 calorie pack of oreo treats.. and hid them in my drawer at work for when I just can’t stand it anymore lol but at least I know I wont binge on something huge if I control it like I am doing!
So now I just keep wondering what to do about my waking up situation , I know I can do it because I HAVE BEEN lol so what’s wrong with me? . I just wake up and shut my alarm right off. I hate it. I miss getting up, being ok with getting up, WANTING to work out, feeling good all day because of it… If it’s not one thing it’s another. darnit… can’t win them all though.

*thank good ness I’m back at 196.6 …. I will take that as a win*

 

Friday, oh how I love you March 12, 2010

Filed under: *The weigh ins* — debi @ 7:40 am

So I weighed in this morning.. 196!!! I am so excited and very very grateful for that number. It made me feel a lot better about everything and just gave me a huge boost to keep going!!! And what a way to top off a Friday already.
Last night I decided to try a Mushroom Salmon recipe, oh my goodness it was heavenly. My husband was kind enough to make it for us and it was seriously the best thing I have had in a long time. If I can figure out how to make a tab on my page I am going to post it as I think everyone should try it . Seriously it’s soooo yummy. And I just had spinach on the side and it was all very very good.
I was off to the gym at about 5 AM this morning, what a killer. But now I feel so refreshed with the gym, seeing that number, being a Friday. Could it get any better? lol
So yesterday I was having the huge chocolate cravings so when I was at the store getting salmon I just noticed the little debbie picture and than I see 100 calories.. so of course it grabbed my attention.. it’s this cute little chocolate cake MINI.. like mini mini but they are adorably cute and small and chocolatey just enough to get over the craving. They are perrfect !!!!!! so I bought them and now I can just pop one of them in when I have that gotta have moment. Problem solved.
I am nervous for the weekend. To mess up, to ruin everything I worked so hard all week to achieve but I am not going to stress it. I just have to be in tone with my body and my eating at all times. The weekends are no exception and that’s the one thing I really need to realize. The weekends are very difficult especially when I have Rylee (my 9 month old) and Alexus (my 4 year old) and my husband who loves to eat!!! But thank god he is sooooo supportive. He loves to cook so he is always cooking healthy meals even though he really doesn’t like to . . he he he .. what a man though. I tell you I don’t know where I would be without him!
***Also to throw this in there. I am starting to get a lot of compliments about my weight loss.. FINALLY .. It just feels nice to have people , not friends or family, just noticing all the hard work.. And I can notice it in my clothing too and its just all starting and I love this new feeling! It really does make a difference and i’m finally FEELING it .. love love love it***

 

Goodbye 200’s February 11, 2010

Filed under: *The weigh ins* — debi @ 7:44 am

Today is a day of triumph for me!! I got on that scale at 199.05 I am so excited !!!! It just felt so good to see that since I haven’t seen it in years and I feel like it just gave me that extra boost I needed. I don’t ever want to see that go up to the 200’s again. Ever!!! I’m trying not to get tooo excited because your weight fluxuates so much but still this is a great day and it finally feels like my efforts are being noticed.. by ME
Anyways last night I did very good and I’m proud of myself. I didn’t munch on one thing that wasn’t in my daily eating plan. So i was very happy for that. It is so hard when you are home with the family and relaxing and there is so much to eat. I feel like my mind is constantly on food. It slowly SLOWLY gets better but one day at a time! .. Today I went to the gym at 6AM and did cardio for an hour and a few weight lifting things, I was burnt out from the cardio since I usually only do 45 minutes so I didn’t do very much weights but I am glad to get that cardio in.

Well anyways today is going to be hard, Right after work I am going to my neices birthday party, tempted with pizza, cake, etc. Basically all the naughty kinds of food. I am doing so good I feel like my weight this morning was a test for me to see how bad I want this and i want it bad so I just have to control myself! I know I can and my husband is like my food police and sometimes I hate him for it but I love him so much for helping me. !!!!
Wish me luck today. I will prove to myself how much I want this.. I will !!!!
