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 SparkPeople.com 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.

Don't worry about the loss it happens to the best of us. Last week I gained with only two bad days under my belt as well :-(

The important thing is to get back on track, stay positive, and just keep on doing it! I know you will post a loss this week :-D

I also am on sparkpeople.com and it is truly a wonderful site. I joined a group that is very supportive "done being the fat girl" You can check me out on there and add me as a friend and I will do the same!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage.asp?id=POURSUITEDEVIE

This isn't easy but maybe it wasn't mean to be.

Sorry... I'm going to comment again on the youtube Dove commercial.. I totally agree with you... our standards of beauty are too high when they border on the impossible images set by the entertainment industry. How are we suppose to aspire to the IMPOSSIBLE??? And it is not HEALTHY to tell women of any age that the only way they can be beautiful is to be perfect. I totally nabbed this video for my own blog!!
