I'm a loser!

I was or am down to 298 this morning so to reward myself i went and had my nails done. They are so cute, i usually do my own nails but my daughter went for a hair cut so i thought i deserved it. She did a much better job than i could ever do, and they are so so so super shinny.

S-U-G-A-R ! ! !

Aunt Flo is visiting so i decided that i wouldn't count calories, i would just sit back and relax as i can get very cranky and snappy during this time. I have been very very bad. Sweet tea two days in a row and tonight i bought a pumpkin pie at Sam's Club and a big tub of Cool Whip Lite. This was too too too good. As i was finishing up my big 'ole piece of pie i started to get light headed and the room began to spin like i was high. i got high off the sugar. WOW. I had heard about this but didn't actually believe it could happen. It was kinda scary. Now i am going to challenge myself to cut out sugar. My Tupperware lady can go one for hours about how bad sugar is and that it will cause cancer and kill you and so on. I think i will listen to her next time he goes off an a tangent.

I've found a new toy!!

The new toy is video blogging, and it's the coolest thing ever!

My Daughter Playing Flute!!!

I'm still here

Hello fellow bloggers and those whom for some strange reason read my blog. My last post was 10 days ago, since then i have had a gain. On Monday, the official weigh in day I was at 311. Wow, I have had a few bad days but i didn't think they were that bad! I have struggled to stay on track and "readjust" my life without my beloved sweet tea. Lately I have found myself making coffee which the way i like it is full of calories when if i would've just had a reasonable amount of sweet tea i would have come out better.

I discovered and it is really amazing. I so glad i found it. I have been using Fitday for years and Sparkpeople just blows FitDay away! I have spent allot of my free time reading the articles, blogs, posts.

My husband started to diet with me. He's been super supportive! We go walk together every night although I can't keep up with him. I'm working on it though. Sometimes we take our daughter, she's getting alittle chunky. Five times around the park track is a mile. I can do it in about 25 minutes. Well i could be i still have to stop for a few minutes to get my back to stop hurting. I bought a resistance band today, I'm going to watch some of the video's on Spark people to learn the best ways to use it.

Have you seen this video? I can't believe we all allow the media to dictate what beauty is.

CCCC Weekly check in (LATE)

Sorry I'm late but this week has turned out to be super busy and next week with my business partner gone on a cruise and me left holding the company cell phone will be even busier! I started this journey on Sept 18th at 319# and was surprised how quickly i was able to lose a few pounds. I wanted to make my weight loss very gradual so that my new lifestyle would be more like a habit rather than a short term quick fix. Aiming for a lose of 2 pounds a week. Monday morning when i stepped on the scales 308# was the reading i received. WOW 11 pounds in 11 days, that was really not what i expected. Honestly I haven't been doing that incredibly good. I still have ice cream and sweeten coffee although i have given up my beloved sweet tea for water. I haven't exercised but twice a week. I can't imagine what it would be like if i were being strict and hard core like some people are.

The other night my husband and I went to the little park down the road from our house and was going to walk around the walking path. As soon as i got out of the car and walked through the gates i could hear a small "meow, meow" and it got louder and louder. Out from the bushes wobbled a small kitten. I tried to reach down and give the little guy some loven but he or she ran from my outreached hand. So we began to walk, and i could hear it again "meow, meow" we look back and itty bitty was following us around the path. Three laps we made and itty bitty followed us like our shadow the entire time "meow, meow" all the way. Our little shadow made the mistake of climbing up in a bush beside the bench we stopped at and gave me the exact opportunity to grab him. Now he resides under my bed. He is so cute. If i could ever figure out how to put pictures on the thing i would post a pic of him or her. Shadow is so small I'm not sure which shim is. The dogs really want to play with the kitty and my 9 year old cat is so pi$$ed at me he wants to kill me in my sleep.

Today i was really bad. We, my business partner(AKA Mom) and I had a early meeting in Jacksonville out near the beach. I rode into town (town - what you call the big city when you live in the country) with her and she always stops at Starbucks before one of these meetings. So of course I got me a Venti coffee Frap. (YUMMY!) I had a 100 cal yogurt for breakfast. After mom dropped me off at my house about 1pm we made arrangements to meet for lunch (we both had to go home to let our doggies out for a quick potty break) I meet mom at Dick's Wings about a mile and a half from my house. I got the special . . . It came with a drink. My first sweet tea in more than a week. It was so good. I had the chicken tenders (FRIED) with the waffle fries (FRIED AGAIN). I used two sauces of the cajun ranch (PURE FAT). After doing the math as best i could 1900 calories for lunch! GADZUKES!! Anyhow, i ended the day at 2900. That's along ways from the 1800 - 2200 that i have set as goal.

My favorite advice that my mom ever gave me is "As we progress, sometimes we will regress." Basically accept that I will fall short of the goal but it's all in an attempt to reach that goal. Just because one day was, um, crappy doesn't mean I've failed and should give up, it is expected and gonna happen. All part of the journey.
