Are you Ready?

Are you ready to lose weight? Really ready and willing to do what it takes? So many of us myself included say we want to lose weight and then we say things like I'll just do this or I dn't have to.Don't fool yourself losing weight is hard hard work. For me at least it's much easier to put on than take off. You have to be willing to change your eating habits. Most big people believe we don't eat any more than anyone else I fed myself this lie for years.Keep a food journal of everythig you eat along with the calories and you will be amazed! This also helps you notice trends and you'll see ways to cut back. Count calories Men should eat 2000 a day and women 1500 Sorry ladies! Drink lots of water!!! This is key and just as important understand this you will have to exercise to be truly successful. Don't dread it!! You will feel so much better you will love it (eventually) Any exercise is better than none, but don't dismiss going to the gym. If I pay money I am much more likey to do something than if it is free. Plus at the gym you can learn from others. I have never felt ridiculed or laughed at by the skinny people ever!! In fact a god many have been very very helpful. If you want to be thin really want to consider this Fat people don't go to the gym skinny people do.If you make exercise and going to the gym a regular 5 to 6 days a week routine I guarantee you will lose weight!! I guarantee you will look and feel better immediately and I guarantee your health will improve greatly!! The choice is yours stay seated and stay fat get up and get moving and get fit. No it won't happn overnight, but it will happen!! Don't be like me and hit a plateau and quit and give up for weeks on end and then mourn for the time you've lost.

Great week!

O.K. with Nat home I haven't been able to go to the gym everyday , but last week I worked out for 4 hours on Friday! I burned 1000 calories on the elliptical and a bunch of different strength training exercises. My clothes were soaked with sweat (which is what it takes for me to lose weight). Well it certainly helped because this week I lost 4 pounds!!!! Now dum da da dum I weigh 280!!!! I finally lost a full 40 pounds!! However the real scary part is that in the last 7 years I have never been able to break that horrible number. I feel like this time though I will do it!! This is the best weight I have had since 1996/1997. I weighed in at around 250 when I got married and with in a year I was 300 and I had been ever since!! It was obviously depression to gain 50 pounds in less than a year!! Sometimes it's not what your eating so much as what is eating you.

Well let's see here I guess I should start off with my weight on Friday's I weigh and since I last checked in here on the 12th I have weighed twice more. On the 18th I weighed 286 and I was so disappointed. And yesterday on the 25th I weighed 284! So I had lost another two pounds I was very pleased of course but I kind of almost expected more because that is still just 1 pound a week. Still I feel better and with only four pounds I can tell a difference both in my appearance and in my health. Only four more pounds to go to finally make it to a total loss of 40 pounds will I make it? I think so if I could ever go to 279 I think it would give me a lot more umph! I haven't been able to go to the gym lately because Nat is home and I have to come straight home to get her but Yesterday she and I spent almost 5 hours there!! I worked harder yesterday than I think I ever have in the 7 years I have been trying to lose weight by going to the gym. My next big fear is this fall I start college to finish my teaching degree which I really want to do. How on earth will I work 65 to 75 hours a week, go to school full time and exercise 4 to 5 days a week!! I don't know how, but I know I have to do all these things for my life to be what I want it to be. I also am in the process of writing all these blogs and two books. I am certainly making up for all these years I have wasted feeling sorry for myself!!

I am at it again!

Well I am finally getting back on track and doing something to save my life. I started on Wednesday of this week going back to the gym and it nearly killed me. Where I could exrcise before for more than two hours I could barely do fifteen minutes. In just two months time of laying out my blood pressure has skyrocketed my back pin has come back and I can barely walk without getting winded. I had gained 7 pounds! So I was back up to 288. Now as you may remember Friday is weigh day so I was very pleased to see 286! I have lost two pounds and my BIG FEAR is I will get back to 281,282 and then hit that same old roadblock. I will keep you posted!

For shame

O.k. here is the awful truth! I did not weigh in this Friday, because I have not been to the gym again all week and I know it aint going to be pretty! I have to come clean though about something, something horrible but by doing so I hope to shame myself into avoiding future mistakes. Thursday night with friday looming me in the face and having a horrible week I ordered an extra large pizza and ate it....all. But that isn't even the worst part the worst part came after. With all the guilt and the misery I did something I have never done before.... I threw up. Just like a young teenage girl. I have GOT to get back to the gym this week! No Excuses! I will keep you informed and as always thank you for clicking in!

Friday's Weigh in

O.k. I knew this was going to be a bad week with having went to Gatlinburg over the weekend. The truth is right now I feel so hopeless. I am so unmotivated and I am hoping this blog will help get me back on track, because I don't think I have been to the gym at all this week and I KNOW that is what it takes for me to lose anything. I wanted to be 275 by the end of April and it doesn't look like I can even make 279, because this week I GAINED 2! I am back up to 285. Oh well! This week I have got to get to the gym!
