I'm Losing Weight!!!

Well, I am down to 170!!! Oh, it's been so long since I have been 170........

For those of you who do not know, I started a job!!!! I am cleaning houses with an old friend of mine who started her own business years ago. I used to clean with her before I got my STNA License and had babies.

She needed full-time help and I needed a job so it worked out!!! I work Tuesday-Friday and some Mondays.

This is some seriously hard work. We clean anywhere from 4-7 hours a day depending on how many houses we have that day. And there really is no time for eating unless it is a cereal bar or a poptart in between jobs. And by the evening I am to pooped to even eat anything.

Now don't get me wrong, I do eat a light dinner and a snack but the weight is just dropping off right now.

I started last Tuesday and my weight was between 176-177 and only 1 week later, I am 170!!!!

I know I prolly won't continue to lose weight so fast but I sure do like it now.

So I guess I will be buying some more clothes or having them taken in!!!

Hello (Hello, Hello, Hello) That was an Echo:)

Because I havn't wrote on this blog in so long I am not sure if anyone is still here!!!! So if it takes awhile to get any comment love, I understand:)

I am now right at 175 and I am not sure what to do. You see, I just accumulated a lot of very nice clothing throughout this past year. Lots and lots of very cute skirts and shirts.

I am afraid of losing weight now. I don't want to grow out of my skirts. I mean I did pay $40.00 a pop for them and I have about 6. Thats a lot of money from where I from. I mean I think I could get them taken in, but would that make them look or fit funny?!?!

I would love to drop about 15 pounds for summer. My shirts would still fit fine, maybe a little baggy but I like them that. It's just my skirts that won't. Also it will cost me about $15.00 each to get them taken in. What do you think I should do? I really want some input here.

And if I do decide to drop the 15 pounds, I am going to need all of the support I can get because I have a SWEET TOOTH!!!!

So drop me some comments and let me know what you all think!!!!

Hello Weight Loss World!!!!

Ok, so I know it has been a long time since I last posted. You see I really haven't been dieting and exercising.

And I have been WAY bad. not a lot of food but all the wrong kinds of food. I actually wouldn't even get on a scale. Seriously, it has been like 3 weeks since I got one one.

Well I decided to get on today and see the damage..........................I was fine!!! I was still between 170-171, so needless to say I am VERY happy!! I am not sure if I will continue to lose weight but I do know that I want to focus on not gaining any!!!!

You See That Widget On My Side Bar?

You know, the one that says next weigh-in? I may just have to skip this weigh in. Talk about a BAD week, although it was a YUMMY week. I am not even going near that thing because I know what it;s going to say. It's going to say, "Amy, LAY OFF THE CHOCOLATE!!!!, Now get off of me, your heavy!"

I really do struggle with this weight loss thing because I do not dislike my body image as is. I mean my husband loves me just the way that I am. I would be helpful if he would just tell me how fat and unhealthy I look sometimes, but he won't. No, i'm just joking, He really is happy with how I am.

Anyway, what was I saying?...................Oh, yea, it's just hard for me to keep motivated. The only true motivating thing is, is that I feel sick top my stomach when i eat too much or the wring things.

For instance, I hate how I feel right now, bloated, tired and just plain old run down. I had like 5 pieces of chocolate for breakfast, Yea, I'll never do that again!!

Anyway, I am not sure if I will weigh-in or not but I will definitely keep you guys posted!!

It's Not Going To Be Good

So after losing 4 pounds in about 3 week, I have started to back slide. i let my eating and exercise go this week and now the scale says i'm back to 174. I will wait till my official weigh-in on Monday to log it and maybe just maybe I will have gotten another pound off by then.

My weight loss journey has been so bumpy filled with high's and low's. I just hope I can continue to make little changes in my lifestyle and I know that eventually someday, it WILL pay off.

Thanks for all of your encouragement, I NEED it!!!

Weigh-In Monday

Today I am...............172!!!!!! Yay, that is definitely 2 pounds gone and the scale actually looked like it was more in the 171 but i will wait until next week for that. For now I am good with a 2 pound loss!!

My Journey

I was just sitting here thinking about how slow I am losing weight. I know that if I only watched what I eat and exercised more that I would lose it much faster, but that's just not for me. I am a girl that likes to eat.

Now, I am definitely trying to change some of my bad habits, like binge eating. I am also drinking a lot more water.

I figure that I am Ok with losing weight at this speed. If I keep this up I am sure that I can even be around 150 by this time next year, and that is definitely Ok with me.

I do not really dis-like my body as is, so that has a lot to do with the fact that i am losing it slowly. I just know that I would, health wise, feel a lot better when it's gone.

Anyway, stay tuned for Weigh-In Monday...............Maybe I will be down a pound or half a pound;)

Weigh-In Monday

.................Drum Roll Please........................174!!!! yay, that is definitely 1 pound gone and I finally broke through a rough spot. The scale actually looked a little below 174 but It's analog so it's hard to read sometimes. All I know is that is was definitely way below 175!!!

BTW~ I ended up using the cereal called "Just Bunches" for granola and it worked out great!!

P.S I am wanting to make those fruit & yogurt parfaits that you get at McDonalds.

O.K, I Had My Fun

I peeked at the scale today and it said I was down almost 2 pounds............but............. I had a few snacks today. Like Pizza, Ice Cream & Cookies :) Now I know that's not good but it has been a LONG time since I had yummy stuff.

Don't worry it's out of my system and hopefully when I do weigh in on Monday, I will see a loss.

**Fingers Crossed**

Weigh In Monday

175.....Yup you read it right. Not one pound gone. Oh I lost 2 pounds right off the bat but that was over a month a ago and I have lost nothing else. I am trying to stay positive but it's really hard!!!!

On a good note. I bought a pair of pants the other day and I never wear pants and they were a size 14, which I thought I would wear a 16. And I also got a shirt in an x-large ad I had to go down to a large.

So anyway I will try to focus on that instead of not seeing the loss.
