Day #1

Starting weight: 181.2 (booooooooo)
Goal weight - anything other than 181.2

Seriously though, my goal right now is to stay on track and take it slow.

So my calories were 1360. 

No workout today, but I can guarantee that I walked at least 2miles or more at work. My legs are aching right now. to do some cleaning before I settle in and watch some reruns of True Blood. ( YUM ERIC)

My new scale :)

Ok. Its official. I now own a scale. And yeah, I stepped on it and just about dropped over with shock. 182. That's with my clothes on mind you, but still .....   :-O

So tomorrow starts a new diet for me. I haven't seen ^ # in over 2yrs and I don't plan on seeing it ever again. I will weigh in again in the morning to see what my official weight is then I will weigh in next Monday.

Pebbles checkin in on me while I was taking a bath.

I CAN do it!

we would literally astound ourselves" ~ Thomas Edison

This quote is a reminder of how strong I am. How strong I can be even in my weakest moments. 

How does someone that works in a bakery lose weight? How does a full time working parent lose weight? 

simple ...Calories in vs calories out. 

The problem with this? I can't stay consistent. I can stick to it a few days then I get weak and cave. In my weakest moment I need to find something that can pick me back up again. Sometimes we need help. 

The weight loss downloads are helping. I have to make time to listen to them though and yesterday I totally forgot about them. I came home from work and vegged out in front of the television.  

I started working in a bakery over a year ago. I have gained close to 10lbs. I would say 15 but I haven't stepped a foot on a scale in over 3months ( or so) but my pants are a little snug and my body holds onto water weight very easy. 

Im buying a scale today, somewhere.   Im starting seriously tomorrow morning. I will weigh in, log my food on myfitnesspal ( they give me around 1500 before workouts) and just take it one day at a time. I use to weigh in on Mondays when I did weight watchers so I will think about that. 

Anyone care to join me? Go to myfitnesspal and register, my user name there is AmyT78. I need all the support I can get =)

Good Morning Sunshine!

Good Morning! I'm up early because I've got the dreaded donut shift. Everyone that works in the bakery has to do donuts every now and then to keep us fresh on the routine. I hate doing them...not really the job itself but the hours. You have to be there very early in the morning.

So, for the last two days I have gotten in some really good workouts. I started Chalean Extreme again and I'm really enjoying her bubbly and positive attitude right now. Shes very motivating and thats what I need right now.

I downloaded some free mp3 downloads last night on weight loss. I really want 'enjoying weight loss' the self help cd set but its 79$, I just can't swing that right now. Maybe after the first of the month ( after mortgage ). So my plan is to listen to them at least once a day...maybe before I go to bed since that seems to be the quietest time. They're suppose to send a positive subliminal message on eating healthy and being more active so I don't have to think about it...just automatically do it. I will keep y'all updated on my progress.

I'm thinking about buying another scale Wednesday. I'm mean, if I'm truly serious about losing weight then I need to know my weight ... or ..... should I just continue going by how my pants fit? ......Still thinking about it.

ok, off to make my breakfast and pack it. Lord knows I have no intention of eating a fresh donut =P

Have a nice day :)
