Weigh in day

Well, I have lost 2 more pounds. I know this is healthy so I should be very happy. Why do I still beat myself up because I could have done more? I want it to come off faster than it came to me and it doesn't work that way. Baby steps-If I continue with 2 lbs a week until my goal, that will be 84 more pounds lost. This is not closer to my goal, well it is but not as far as I want to get in that time. I will still have another 50 pounds to go from there. I need to do more exercise I think. Maybe that would help.

Weigh-in Day

Well, the results are in. *Drum roll please*

10 lbs!!!!!!!

So far I am loving this plan. My hope is that I continue to lose, no matter how much. If I ever plateau I tend to get devastated and want to give up, thus putting on extra pounds in the process. I am excited about the loss. My new goal is to be more active so I can feel better as well. I still need the energy to back up the weight loss. That would be my incentive.

Weight Loss Goals -- Yes, I am copying my new friend Valerie

~~~~My Nine Month Weight Loss goals~~~~

My Thanksgiving Goal – 45 lbs (250)
My Christmas Goal – 25 lbs (225)
My Valentines Goal – 25 lbs (200)
My Easter Goal – 25 lbs (175)
My End of May Goal – 25 lbs (150)

Total Pounds lost between September 8 and June 8 – 145 lbs

*I think this can be realistic. I know results are not typical, but I saw my mother lose more than this in the same amount of time.

Still Tired

Well, I am still very overly tired. I'm not sure unless it's just getting to be around that time. I get enough sleep, but I guess I am not getting enough exercise or something. If I weren't so tired I might get something done!

What If

What if I could stop feeling so tired?
So far I am off to a good start with my food intake. I haven't been hungry and my only problem is motivation to keep walking. I feel like I am still in a yuck kind of mood. School work is becoming a problem because I do not have and adequate place to get it done. Everywhere is loud and the children are just as disoriented as I am . They say it won't be long until we are in our house, but if this next hurricane happens down here-it will be even longer than that. AAAGH!!!
It is really no one's fault. I just tend to set myself up to get let down because I am an idealist who lives in cloud world and thinks everything is going to be alright. I am really moody and I have anger issues that I never had before. Is it just stress? Or am I becoming hormonally imbalanced? Maybe this new me will help with these issues. What if?

The New Me

About this blog:

I do not usually do this. I am hoping to have great success this time because I have much to say and would like to have a place to say what is on my mind without having a lot of bad mouth back at me. (unless warranted-it could happen)

I am at a new place in my life and would like to start fresh with a new lease on life and what I can offer it and what it can offer me in return. A little background: I have just celebrated my 37th birthday this past week. I have been married to the same wonderful man for 17 and 1/2 years. Together, we have 3 beautiful children (Two boys 12 and 7, One girl 3). I have just completed my Associates Degree over the summer and am continuing with online classes in pursuit of a Bachelors Degree in Economics. After my husband graduated in May, we had no clue where we were going. God is showing us big things because he accepted a job as head church planter in a whole other state (14 hours away from home). While I do miss my family, I am totally siked about this venture in God's kingdom and what He has in store for our family. I realize there are many things that I would like to see changed, which is the reason for this blog.

1. I want to have a closer relationship with God (prayer and scripture)
2. I want our family to have a closer relationship (family time and devotional time)
3. I want to be more disciplined with school work (perseverence)
4. I have just joined Weight Watchers (hoping that I can make a life change)
5. I have anger issues (really need to be solved or contained)

Please pray for me in my new quest.
