Thanks Laura.. BUT...

So yesterday was weigh in.. did awesome.. then ALINA bought me a box of chocolates....I can't be upset with her.. she is a giving young lady.. and with my on again off again life style.. how is she to know when I am on? right.... so.. not to be rude or hurt her feelers.. I ate 3 and gave the rest to kayden..lol.. BUT.. that sent me a spinning.... and I don't mean on a spin bike either.... I made cup cakes and cookies for work today and I had a cup cake and some cookies..

I yelled at myself last night and told myself that... I did not wanna be on the TV show "my 600 pound life".. and today is a new day.. NO MORE SUGAR people.. and you know what.. I should have said..

"Alina sweetie.. I really appreciate the candy, but I cannot have any, you and your brothers share it.. "

Live and learn...

Its my body I have to think about.. my life I have to live for..

eggs this am for lunch.. ran out of the house without lunch.. but Chris will get me a salad somewhere..

later

Happy Valentines day all!Happy

Hey Lisa,
Don't let one day get you down! I have had a whole week of horribleness which doesn't look to improve till I get back home... and I refuse to give up! It is hard when things pop up but we can & WILL soldier on! Head up & today is a new day!

I am getting in the 30 minutes of cardio in the morning - but I am so worn out when I get back to the hotel @ 9PM I am too tired to actually work out. My eating habits have been horrible too.

My trainer will likely kick my butt on Monday night - but I kinda deserve it. I will get by !

Wow! So good to read your posts! I have been off here for the last couple of months and it was good to catch up and seeing you all still going strong (each and every one of you are strong, and can do it!Rock On )

Here is my update:
At work we started our Fitness challenge the first week of the new year. I weighed in at 194#. Yesterday I weighed in at 183# so I have lost 11#! This is mostly due to watching what I eat and only some exercise. I have not been in to AF Crying , but I have been very active with my boys. And until yesterday, have not over eaten once! Valentines day lunch with my Honey Lovestruck Kiss !!!

I know that I could have done better these last two months if I would have really stuck to what I was doing, but I feel I still did great for myself and am still on the right track! I just need to adjust my course a little!

Physically I feel great! I have been getting the sleep I need, drinking more water, and eating (mostly) what I should! And I have more energy and am just happy!!!!

Mentally I am dealing with my issues that rear thier ugly heads every few months. I have been withdrawn from everyone the last few weeks. But boy does it suck when it happens...my mental pebbles are eveywhere during these times as everything bashes my confidence and self esteem.

That song says it all Dusky Thank You for posting it!!! and I am climbing back up!

Back to work! Hope to be more active on here and get back into the swing with all of you!

We can do it!

Not doing real good right now but am not giving up! the food has been calling my name. Oh how I wish i could quiet it permenantly! This is a battle I will have to fight forever. Some days I can just hang on for the ride, other days, it is all uphill. Right now it is uphill.

Thanks for the words of encouragement Dusky. My best friend just died & her memorial service was today,(Saturday). Too much stress & I buckled. I should have been kinder to myself. I set my expectations too high. Went to the service & then straight to work. I should have taken the evening off work. I barely made it. Don't know why I did that to myself. If anyone else would have told me they did that I would have told them they were crazy for pushing themselves like that. Guess I thought I was exempt from stress over load. Well, I'm not!

I am back from my trip & I must say.... I am very disappointed with myself. the trip was good as far as work goes - but I ate too much and work out not near enough. Managed to gain 5 pounds in 2 weeks. Feel like giving up now. I knew along the way that there would be bumps in the road... but this is almost enough to make me want to quit.

I know I won't give up... but I have lost all motivation right now. Personal problems abound as well. Lots of stuff for me to figure out. Guess I don't have a choice but to deal with all of it before it pushes me over the edge.

Good luck this week everyone! Have a great day!

Laura. Don't give up. This is a brand new week. Start fresh. Last week is in the past..... Let it go! Try to give it a little extra in your workouts this week and you will say good bye to those 5 pounds. No Worries. I'm here with you. You can do this. Do it for yourself, you deserve it. After a good workout treat yourself to a long bubble bath. There you can think and go over stuff until your water turns cold. Have a great Monday and an even better week.

Oh Tami, I'm soooo soooo sorry to hear about your loss. It is oh so very difficult to stay the course of any journey when something like that happens. I wish I could erase the pain you are feeling . . . I wish you didn't have to go through this . . . try not to be so hard on yourself and ease back a little . . . don't go overboard, but don't worry if you can't focus too well for a little while.

Hi Laura, it sounds like you have a LOT of things going on in your life right now that is making it difficult for you. Would it help you if I reminded you of the ruler? Where are you on that ruler? You can use this ruler illustration for just about anything in life . . . If you are sitting at a 2, is there anything you can do to help get that number up a little higher? If there is honestly nothing you can do, then accept the situation - it is what it is and that's that. It doesn't mean you like it or approve of the situation, it just means that you acknowledge it and move on. But if there is something you can do to change the situation or number on that ruler, then work towards it. (At least that's what my psycho doctor has been telling me.Happy )

Challenge one runs from Jan 2 - Mar 26

I just posted an update and it was too wordy and I lost it all . . . I'll have to update y'all later.

But first, I must thank my secret friend here on ATH! I am utterly speechless here. Thank you sooooooo much for helping me out with the trainer sessions. I love my trainer and I can honestly tell you that the session are not going to waste. I am putting everything I have into them. Happy
