It's Day Two


Yesterday was a Netflix binge kinda day. I sat on my rump and watched probably 12 episodes ( or more?) of Sons of Anarchy. Every episode would end leaving me hanging so I had to continue? And then netflix would ask "Are you still watching?" LOL, well ...yeah, im  not dead. Hahaha

I played some zoo tycoon and then decided I needed to do something productive so I cleaned up one bathroom and did some laundry. Hubby cooked some turkey spaghetti for supper and I made some garlic toast. But most importantly I stayed on plan! Thats right, I was able to click that MyfitnessPal" complete diary" button at the end of the day. What a rewarding feeling =)

It's day number two today. On the agenda today is work ( yawn, boring) then later on this evening I'm meeting a friend and where seeing Magic Mike XXL. Sigh, oh the joys of seeing a bunch of muscle men dance AND take off there clothes. It's going to be a good day ya'll :-D

Something Is Clicking

....I'm starting to think different about food. There is something interesting going on in my brain that's hard to explain. I've reached a point to where I"m just done.. I've felt this way before and two years later I was 112 pounds lighter.

My plan of action is taking it one meal at a time, one day at a time. I will log my food on MFP of course. I've made it public but I'm not sure if you need an account to see it but here is my user name on there. AVT78 - if you do send me a friend request please include a message so I know its from my blog.

On my last weight loss journey I didn't really share it online. No reason, just wrote everything down and kept going. But this time I plan on sharing my whole experience with you. Everyday I will log about something. I thought about starting a weight loss page but hell, this blog started off as a weight loss blog so I will just change the name of it.

It's clicking ya'll. Something is clicking in my head and I'm so excited about it.

Good Morning! 

"A year from now, you will wish that you had started today"

I posted this because I tried to start counting calories again yesterday ( on myfitnesspal) and ended up eating too much, again. I was guilty of #6 yesterday.

Today I'm trying again.

If your starting something new today join in with me =)

Sunday Quickie


It's Sunday and I'm still in my PJ's coming to you from my living room....25 minutes before I have to be at work. I love living close to my job!

So no change to report, no calories counted except for one day last week when I did. I'm not proud of it but at least I'm not gaining right now. I have to make myself workout today. It's been two days since my last workout and the workouts are keeping the weight off.

I have some good news. Hubby said he would join a gym with me last night. I was basically whining about my weight again and how I'm having a hard time sticking to counting calories. He said he wants to lose weight too so after our next trip to the beach he is willing to join for one month, I was THRILLED to hear that!! It will be the last week of July.

crap, now I have to stop and get ready for work.

Laters gators....

It's Been A Few Days..


It's been a few days since my last post, I apologize for that. My life has been pretty much work, sleep and working out so not much going on right now.

I'm proud of myself for keeping up with my workouts. By doing so I have managed to maintain my weight for the last two weeks. On June 8th I weighed 241.6. This morning the scale showed the same weight!! I was surprised (and relieved) to see that # considering the way I've been eating.  So the workouts are helping, all I have to do is cut back a little. Maybe my first step is to stop eating after 7:30. I'm going to try that tonight.

ok, gotta get ready for work. I need to pack my lunch and breakfast.

I'm off tomorrow and plan on doing some changing on my blog. My kids saw my "Before and After "photo's and started laughing because my face was faded out. I did it for privacy but I guess it really doesn't matter so I will fix that *eye roll. I also want to add my workout page back in here and maybe my weight loss/ measurement page too.

June 20 2015 update


I'm up early for a slim in six workout. I want to get it done before work so I can relax afterwards...

Yesterday was day #1 on myfitnesspal and I did great! Got in a workout and stayed within my daily calorie limit...im so proud of myself. I ate around 1650 in calories and drank tons of water. I went over on sodium but I'm not worried too much about it. Sodium is in everything!!

I haven't stepped on the scale and quite frankly, I don't wanna see it right now. Maybe after a few days of being on  track I will check my weight. I maybe even wait until the 26th of June, that will be 7 days on plan before I check it? IDK...will see.

So its been a little over 10 days since I quit phentermine and I finally feel like my old self again. I honestly didn't realize just how bad I felt until I came off the pill. It made me anxious all the time, kinda depressed and paranoid too. I won't take it again. I have a private phentermine page where I logged my thoughts and feelings in, and I will go back to that if I ever get the itch to try it again.

Ok, I've got to start slim in six now. Later gators...

I just finished this workout. If you "Play all video's" is about 25 minutes.

2 Days Later....


So I just finished a 30 minute elliptical workout, I just logged my last snack into myfitnesspal and I'm under my goal for the day. My feet hurt, I'm tired and I have a head ache from the crazy day at work but you know what? I don't give a crap because IT FEELS GOOD TO BE ON PLAN!!

whoot whoot...what ... what... happy dance time

Yeah, I know..I'm a goofy goober but I don't care. It has taken me two days just to get in the right mindset to start counting calories again. Yesterday didn't go so well and the day before that I ended up eating way too much sugar. BUT NOT TODAY. Yup...I'm on tack and feeling good about it.

ok, I need to get in the shower and get ready, were going fishing.
