I wanted to check in, now that I'm back at a computer. When I started this journey, I was a 3X. 2X on a good day. My pants were size 22/24 depending on brand. Today, right now, I'm wearing a large. My pants are 12/14 depending on brand. My progress has been slow - I'm sure some of you blasted right through to your goals in no time - but it's happening. I'm making progress.

I hope the rest of you are still at it, quietly working away, losing weight and being awesome.

May the Force Be With You!

It's Star Wars Day! As most of you know, Star Wars is what got me going on my weight loss journey. I am really glad to have that extra push - glad that Star Wars is in my life to inspire and encourage me.

I hope you are all pushing yourself and moving forward, as well.

May the Force Be With You!

As of my weigh-in yesterday, I'm down another pound! I'm so excited! I bought a fancy "tracks your up/down weight" scale a few weeks ago. It glows green when you've lost, red when you've gained, and blue if you haven't changed. Yesterday was the first time I've seen it go green!

It was glorious, and I cannot wait to make it do that again! I always wait two weeks between weigh-ins, because weekly was just causing me too much anguish, and now I'm so excited for the next time.

It's funny how such a childish thing like a glowing light can make me blissfully happy.

May the Force Be With You!

It recovered pretty well - I've been doing stair steps today and it hasn't given me any trouble! If it's sore again tomorrow I'll for sure be giving it another day or two, though!

My right knee is acting up today. I see this as a sign from Mother Nature to get working on my core. I know it's something I need to focus on, and now I have no excuse not to.

We are so awesome!

I'll get an awkward phone call from him in fifteen years, where he calls to tell me not pursuing me is the single biggest regret of his life. Alternately, on his wedding day, asking me to tell him to settle and be happy. It will not surprise me, because I have had it happen before no less than five times in my life, from guys who never worked up the nerve to make a move or in any way indicated to me that they were interested. I've always thought it was because I was fat. Now, I'm starting to wonder if maybe there isn't something else going on. I look better than I've looked in decades, and I'm still... what, intimidating? Maybe that's the word. Intimidating.

It's funny, but from a 16, I can see my way to being a 12. When I was an 18, it felt so far away. Now, though... now I can see and feel that I'm changing. That I can make it. I can do this. WE can do this.

The date was super awkward! I bought a new bra - down to a 40F from a 44H at my biggest - and dressed cute - new size 16 jeans oh dear god I'm almost in regular store sizing - so I felt awesome. I didn't do anything special with my hair or make-up, tried to keep it low key, but he absolutely froze up. I'm pretty sure I'll get one of those polite texts about how nice it was, but he'd like to stay friends. On the other hand, I have another date, with a friend's friend, some time later this week, so that's two dates in a week after no dates in twelve? years. Actually, I find it really interesting timing. Not sure what I think about that. Slim down enough and suddenly I'm good enough to start setting up with people?

Congratulations, Geaux! That's incredible!

I will let you know how the date goes! It's not until this weekend, but I'm slightly excited. The couple we're going with have been good friends of mine for a long time, so I expect even if the date is a dud, I'm going to have a good time.

Today is off to a stunning start - Mother Nature is showing off, a bit.

I should specify that it's a DOUBLE date, with a friend and her husband, so I'm not blindly going out with a stranger. Also that I have been overdoing it at the gym because I've been stressed, and anything to distract me from that seems like a good thing, right now, but so far I've avoided using food.

I have been swamped at work the past few days, and with some social things, so I've been MIA a bit. I'm still committed to the program. I haven't forgotten about you guys. Also, I asked a guy to go out and he said sure, so I have a date. Even more reason to keep at it/keep up with it!

Geaux - I imagine your fur baby makes going outside and running around less of a hassle - the company always makes it less intimidating to go out alone. I always like running around with our chickens. I can't wait to open their fence up again in the summer - we keep them penned to a decent but smaller area in the winter, because clearing the whole back yard is a Herculean task. In the summer, we roam everywhere. It's a ton of space.

As sore as I am today, man, I am really glad that I pushed myself working out yesterday. I feel really good about it. Today, I'm really focusing on getting my vegetables in. I have been slacking on that, too. If someone else hadn't mentioned it, here, I probably wouldn't have noticed, either.

I agree with how you dress better when you feel better. I a taking time to do my hair then the usual blow dry and run a brush through it.

We deserve to feel good with all of our hard work we are putting in!!!!

Keep up the great work battle!!!

Oh, what a cutie! Ours are just Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, because my mother is a sucker and fell madly in love with the little doggies with a genetic predisposition to heart issues. We've been really lucky, though - both of ours are healthy, aside from a minor bout of puppy strangles (an apparently somewhat rare autoimmune disorder animals sometimes get?) with one of them when it was rather small.

I'm feeling really happy lately, and you can tell because lately I'm dressing better. It's funny how just feeling a tiny bit more energetic better makes it easier to swipe on some mascara or coordinate accessories.

Battle, Cooper, my puppy is a pound puppy, I rescued from a shelter. He is 2 1/2 so not really a puppy but he is my puppy. He is a mix of black lab, and chow (we think) and something else that we don't know!! I love my baby boy!!!

Finally home! Celebrated with an hour of cardio. My body is so happy to be here, where I have all my work-out equipment and don't feel as awkward sweating it up and being scrubby. Puppies are the best - how old is it? What breed? I feel like I've mentioned my Cavaliers before, but I have two tiny Cavaliers, edging on two years old.

I don't know that I have an entire rest day scheduled during the week - I do cardio or strength training every day.

Today it's cold and windy here, and I am, for some reason, just starving. I've been good about it, so far, but I expect I'll be edging near the top of my calorie range today. I'm also running on not enough sleep, which doesn't help at all.

On the plus side, I got to see some good friends. My best friend's husband, who is sort of bonus best friend, at this point, is deploying soon, so we've been spending as much time together playing board games while we can. I have this great one, Pandemic, where you try and stop an outbreak. I wasn't sure about him when they got married, but now I think I'll miss the addition to our board game while he's gone.

It's such a lovely day outside today. The sun is up, and the sky is clear, and the mountains are looming beautifully in the distance. Some days I'm really thankful that I get to live somewhere like this, surrounded by the beautiful outdoors.

I hope everyone else is out there being sensible and working hard. I can't wait to get home after work and do my cardio and my daily strength training. Today's one of those days that feels like it's full of limitless possibilities.

Valentine's Day wasn't as bad as I expected. I no longer want soda, like I used to, so I wasn't tempted for that. I don't crave the cupcakes or sweet cookies. I've never liked chocolate, but I'm finding I favor things like green tea ice cream, or a small affogato, instead of the sort of things I used to prefer before. I suppose I'm changing, and I should be nervous about it, but I'm sort of excited, instead.

Geaux - We are strong and awesome, and we are going to do this. One day at a time.

Free - I usually hate Valentine's Day, but I'm glad to have the flowers around.They're just bright and cheerful, and a reminder that spring will come. Living in Alaska, you can get used to the way it's cold and dark and windy.

Geau ~ awesome job on the weight loss!!!! I'm doing great with the temptations. A cupcake isn't worth the calories to me related to what I've lost so far and how much more I have to loose. I just say to myself...ok eat the cupcake and diet forever or don't eat it and reach my goal weight sooner... not saying its not hard and that the temptation isn't there just I am really trying to make the right choices now.. You have no clue how many years I have wasted cause I made the wrong ones then just gave up on myself...no more this is my year!!!

Battle ~ I bet your house smells so lovely with all those flowers!!! Stay strong with your choices. You can do it...

I started today out with my cardio. So far I've kept my calories in check, but it's only 5:30. There is still time for me to have a self-esteem crash and ruin everything. I'm actually really happy today - I cleaned the whole house and we received about six bouquets of flowers for my mother, so the whole house is looking festive and bright.

Geaux - Do you have any idea how cool you are? Seriously, your optimism is an epic win. I hope you are having an incredible day.

Tomorrow is yet another chance to start all over fresh, and I'm looking forward to seven days of in-my-range calorie eating, and getting back where I need to be on my strength training. I've been phoning it in on my core, and it's just not cool.

May the Force Be With You!

Free - I'm so glad you're done with the computer issues. It's wonderful to have you back. It sounds like we all agree on Galentines - it's the better of the two holidays. I love the mindset of the food still being there. There is always time for it later. I love the idea of pre-packed food, too. I try and handle lunch that way, too.

Geau - Man, it's spring-ish here. So bright and warm. Glad to hear you've lost more weight! I still haven't seen much change on the scale, but in the inches I know I'm making progress.

Today's a Vlanetines party at work, so there's no doubt I'll be having a difficult time with it. I planned ahead wit ha low-cal nutritious lunch, but man, it's going to be cake and cookies and soda all over. Wish me luck!

uggg been having computer issues... my son usually fixes my computer but alas being a travel nurse he doesn't travel with me lol so I finally paid to have it rid of viruses and cleaned up... hate not being able to use my computer!!!!it was so frustrating I could come on but it would lock up when I tried to post then just go black screen!!! very stressful ...and I had days off from work which only gave me more time to be frustrated!!!!
lol now to catch up

been missing home and my sons so bad, didn't eat so well this past week and laxed on my exercising too... am back on track now and praying saturday doesn't show a weight gain!!!

Battle ~ awesome attitude with new months starting, hoping your workouts are going great...I'm with Geau on valentines being overrated... mine never left lasting memories like romance novels and tv shows....Oh galentines that is a wonderful idea...I love dressing up and going out... hard to at my size though... hope your cold is getting better...and I'm with you on comfort foods several found their way into me this last few days... back on track for me though..I just had to say "you know what lets loose some more then you can have them again cause they will ALWAYS be there...just not today today I'm eating healthy" that way its not like I'm forbiddening them I'm just choosing to not have them today...You can do this... can't wait to see that scale move for you!!!!... your so awesome working out even though you felt bad not sure I would of but will remember you doing it in the future and will try to push through same as you did!!!! Thank You

Geau ~ proud of you putting your anger from a bad phone call into energy at the gym... lesson learned you are an awesome role model!! I love snowstorms and snow... missing it though my sons got over 2 foot at their place.. we only got an inch here lol..love it "single awareness day" lol ....I don't have the spark app... I'm what you call technically challenged lol... again your a role model for me...taking your own food to the party and staying strong!!!! Thank you for the strength you have and share with me and us... you did know snow shoveling is on the fitness tracker?!!! lol burn those calories!!!!

Ok so its back to work for me today...on for 6 ..12 hour shifts in a row... So I precooked healthy meals and frozen individually to help me not hit the fast food places on the way to work or the vending machines at work... have my workout clothing at the ready for when I get home to get my workouts in too.

Hope you guys are having funfilled healthy choices days!!!!!

Geaux - So long as you still had fun, that's fantastic news. Glad to hear the work-out went well, too. I love a good cardio session.

I'm teaching PE today, so I'm getting a nice work-out too. I may skip my actual cardio, since I'm PE all week. It's going to be intense. I love working wit the kids, and it's so fun to see them get all excited to play games. We're doing one called Rey vs. the First Order. It's Sharks and Minnows but with a female Jedi instead of sharks, and Storm Troopers instead of Minnows. The kids have all loved it, so far.

May the Force Be With You!

I was not tempted by all the snacks at the Super Bowl party last night. I brought my dinner and I sat and ate my meal replacement and my salad and I drank my water!!!
I had a great work out this morning!! I am feeling great!!!!
It is snowing here so I think I will be getting more cardio in when I get home and have to shovel!!

I'm trying valiantly to overcome. Honestly, I'm feeling a lot better. It's funny, but I'm really proud of myself for pushing through and doing my cardio despite the great excuse not to. I can't believe it's been 37 days already, or that we're already in February and still going strong.

I'm very nearly back down to my original starter weight, which is something I am excited about.I can't wait to start making actual weight loss headway, on that front.

Geaux, thank you for sticking around, for keeping going. I am always really glad to see that you're still updating, still moving forward. I'm so glad you got your mobile app working again, and that I've had a chance to meet you here like I have. Knowing there are others around going through this same journey, walking this same path, is very encouraging.

Carpe diem, right?

May the Force Be With You!

Yeah, I felt so disconnected to everything. That is my life source LOL. I record everything on it and I felt completely lost. I am just glad it is working again.
Battle I hope you start feeling better, colds are no fun.
Looks like we are going to get some snow tomorrow night into Monday :(

I'm so glad you figured it out! I'm addicted to the phone app - I'm not sure I'd be able to track my food if it weren't for that. I'd never remember what to catalog.

I'm still in the midst of a fairly awful cold, very congested, but I've still kept up with my cardio - somehow it feels like the cold has won if I'm not up to at least half an hour of cardio. I've been eating poorly, though. More cream-based soups, less vegetables, and some favorite comfort foods. Specifically, Panda Express' white rice and walnut shrimp. I've had it two days in a row and I am sorely tempted to make it three, even though I know it's terrible for me.

May the Force Be With You!

I love getting dressed and going out. Or, well, I used to. It's been a while since I really felt comfortable that way. There's just something nice about a pretty dress, nice jewelry, and polite conversation. It's like stepping into another world. One where things are a lot nicer.

The Carthay Circle Restaurant in Disneyland is my favorite, because if you go in dressed to the nines and treat it like a fancy affair, the staff is right there with you - they get very formal and polite, and make you feel a bit like you've somehow made their day, too.

I guess that's how I think of getting dressed up and going out - less about the awkward tension with a spouse or significant other that just can't put the dang dishes away, and more about being whisked away to a place out of time for an evening. I feel the same way about theater.

Maybe I have a romantic, optimistic view of the world. It's possible.

Geau - we're doing "galentines" for all the single ladies in my friend group this year, partially to cheer up a friend whose significant other is military. We figure she counts, right? I feel really bad for her. I imagine the only thing harder than having no valentine on a day where everyone wants to point out that you have no valentine is having one and being alone anyway.

I'm just settling in to do my cardio now. I've been looking forward to it all day. As far as I can tell, it's already spring, isn't it? It's so clear and bright outside it isn't even funny. I miss the snow!

Geau - Stay safe and don't let the winter creep in at you!

Hope everyone is holding it together now that February has descended, and that we're all revitalized as we start yet another month. I love how much potential it feels like a new month has, even if this one is February, and I have never, to date, had a Valentine. I am going to look at is as a good thing - there will be no tempting treats!

I've got a bit of a cold right now, but I'm going to power through it tonight - I had a long day and want to burn away my frustration with cardio.

Geaux - see, that's healthy management! Use the anger!

Free - One day a time! I'm so glad you're in this with me. I feel much the same way. My previous efforts resulted in weight gain, fairly consistently. I am so, so glad I found SparkPeople.

This weekend was good, though. Not as much work-out time as I wanted, but I ate sensibly and I'm looking forward to work this week.

yeah!!!!! emoticon

for years have tried to loose weight and have but only to gain it back and more each time... this time is the first time I am doing it the right way...I am so so thankful I have found sparkpeople... I am pushing it hard here at first but I need that. And it's working!!! Love stepping on that scale and seeing it go down. I know it won't always go down but that is ok... This keeps me pushing to do my workouts which I do think oh missing one today won't hurt...then I think of my weigh in and up I get and workout lol... So its paying off.

Hope everyone is having a fun healthy choices day!!! I'm off to work.

hugs

Finally, FINALLY starting to see a shift on the scale! I went down two more pounds! I know this is a dumb way to measure things, as I've gone down a pants size already, but I gained 8 pounds after starting my journey, and it's been something that has been bothering me a little. I'm still up two from where I started, but I feel like this is a positive direction and I'm thrilled. You guys, I am feeling so awesome today! We are all so awesome!

So glad to hear you're doing so well, staying positive, and keeping on keeping on! Buying new pants is always an endeavor, but I'm glad to hear that's what you chose to do to reward yourself, too. I love shopping, and I am looking forward to picking up a second pair of size 16s, too.

Also, hearing about your guys' work-outs inspire me so much! Today I'm doing an hour of cardio on the stationary bike and then my daily challenge. It's leg day, so I imagine it's going to include squats and lunges galore.

Wish me luck, and have a phenomenal day!

You guys are doing awesome!!! So proud of you...well I ended up picking up a couple more shifts!!!!! then slept most of the first day off lol and the next which was today was spent cooking for the upcoming weekend shifts, and laundry and getting workouts in and filling car with gas, errands errands errands uggg hate wasted days off... so new rule from now forward... I'm only working my three scheduled days each week for a while so I can have a life!!! its time someone else picked up all the extra shifts.

I have never worked out with bands before is it hard to learn? Do you feel it?

I have been off diet coke, diet dr pepper, diet sprite lol yes if it was diet I drank it for years!!!! but have been off it for over a month then had one this last weekend EWWWW it tasted bad I was unable to finish it... so back to water for me...as for how to not be up going wee all night... drink your water early in the day... none 3 hours before bed so its worked out of your system before sleeping. That is what works for me anyway.

So I did spend some me time today ...shopping!!! lol I have been walking and doing zumba, along with squats... I am down a whole jeans size!!! yeah so I celebrated by buying new pair of boots lol learning to reward myself without food... New thing for me... I do still fight cravings for oh such bad foods... Think I always will ... but for now am staying strong and steady in this journey...hoping to loose one more size before I head home the first of march... So want to surprise my family with my progress... haven't shared with them that I am once again on a diet... I have failed so many in the past.. now I'm looking at it more as lifestyle changes I have to make to get to a healthy size... and I'm taking it day by day... meal by meal.

Battle, Diet coke is all I would drink all day long. Since I have started this journey I have 1 diet coke a day, just as a caffeine boost as I don't drink coffee or anything, and I have to force myself to drink it because it just tastes weird. I usually double fist with water and diet coke! Who knew!!! I hope you had a great day!

I'm feeling my work-out today, too. Over-did-it on the arms yesterday. Today's core again, I believe, and I'm looking forward to doing it after work, along with my cardio.

Not gonna lie, I have been stressed out a bit lately, and I never realized how much I reach for a little sugar boost to pep me up when I'm sad. I actually broke down and bought a soda, yesterday, to try and make my day better. It didn't work - I took one sip and had to spit it out. It just doesn't taste right, anymore.

I suppose that's a good thing, though. Today's going to be a great day.

I'm content with my weight loss so far. I've managed to deal with restaurants and a surprise Italian lunch at work. There's only been one day when I said, "The heck with this," and that was the day my grandmother-in-law died. Even then, I didn't totally go off the deep end, but I probably could have handled it a bit better.

Drinking water is turning out to be quite a problem, which is surprising because I think of myself as a big water drinker. However, when I started doing my 8 glasses a day, I found I had to get up to go to the bathroom a couple times of night. This wasn't an issue for me the last time I was on SP, so something has changed. Any ideas how to deal with this?

Leg Day here, too. I'm going to do my work-out after work, because I'm on my feet all day at work, which is, I suppose, the joy of working in education. So far it's off to a rocky start. The earthquake a few days ago knocked about all the silt in our well into the water, so our water is essentially mud, even with the filter.

May the Force Be With You!

Today was a core day, and I'm begging to realize my core is in terrible shape. It's another small change in a long series of small changes I have to make.

I'm really optimistic, though - knowing a problem is half the way to solving it.

Hope you guys are having a great day, staying on track, and enjoying all the snow!

May the Force Be With You!

Free - Congratulations on the weight loss! I can imagine that being snowed in would be pretty much the antithesis of of fun, at least for most work places. I hope mentally you're hanging in there, and I look forward to a Monday update!

Doing my cardio right now, on the FitDesk today, and its arm day, so I'll be doing that, too. I have both weights and resistance bands, now, so that's going to be a fun thing to play with.

May the Force Be With You!

Heck yes, Geau! I'm glad to hear it! I am so ready to do my daily work-out, too.

I'm really happy with myself right now. I've been really consistent and I am starting to SEE differences. Nothing big, but more defined muscles in my legs, my bracelet sliding incrementally further down my arm. Little things that aren't just "my pants don't fit anymore."

May the Force Be With You!

Battle: Yes I can't believe how happy I have after a work out. It is like oh my goodness! I seem to have more energy on days I go work out then the days I don't!!! Which I think is weird. But I will take it!

The good thing about working with the kiddos is that I'm literally on my feet all day, and there's a lot of pacing about, from kid to kid to correct things and help out. In some ways, teaching is more physical than archery instructing, which is something I never expected. I teach archery to small children in the summers, and I think of it as being very physical, but this year has shown me that I've been way off base - the archery stuff is so tame in comparison to the teaching stuff. You never really think about the volume of paperwork teachers carry around - quizzes to grade, and so on. It's insane.

That said, I'm glad to be modeling proper hydration, healthy eating, and positive attitude. Day 22, and I'm feeling very positive about it all.

Congrats on the awesome work-out! I can't wait to get home and put some time in, tonight. Are you at that point where you just feel better if you've had a chance to work out? Somehow I managed to get there, but I don't know how. It snuck up on me.

May the Force Be With You!

Battle: I hope those chocolates didn't tempt you!!! I use to work with children for a long time and I know how trying and stressful it can be! You can do it!!! You are setting an example for those kids on how to eat right!! Turn every situation into a learning one! Have a great day!
