Week 9 of my Journey!

I am so excited to seethe changes in me. I am feeling much better about myself now. I have become more active in what I do and making sure to make right choices. I have always tried to instill that in my little one as well. I want him to make right choices in school. One that we've worked on was him coming to me even if it meant that possibly he'd get in trouble. He does come to me even if he thinks he might get in trouble. I'm so proud of him. I love it when he cheers me on at my meetings and my weigh in's. He's a great cheerleader just like my Aunt Betty. He loves it when he comes to a weigh in with me. They love it when he congratulates me if I have a loss. They tell him then he announces it and cheers me on. The other ladies waiting in line to be weighed love it and when he gives a woo hoo! from the back of the room they clap for him because they make him smile. Now he doesn't get to go with me all the time. He goes if he's off from school because of a holiday or there's just no school like in the summer. Sometimes it's those little things that mean so much to us when we're removing pounds or trying to accomplish a goal.

Now onto the weigh in results!! I had another add on. I had some things going on that I wasn't always able to track points. Tracking points is always key to this. I really feel that I need to make sure I log what I do, what I eat. I will be journaling and will let you know how that goes. The add on amount is +0.4 pounds. Which now brings my total to an even 23 pounds!!! I'm still proud that I've removed 23 pounds because that could have easily gone the other way if I hadn't buckled down and started keeping track.

Week 8 of my Journey!

Here we are at week 8 now. I'm excited!! Things are going well. I have been sticking with plan. I'm hoping for a decent removal this week. We will see because if I remember right I had an add on last month at this time. I'm hoping it holds off until at least tomorrow or the next day. I really want to see a removal not an add on. Well, I lost that one.... I have an add on this time. I'm not pleased with myself for it, but I know what the cause is so I shouldn't let it get me down. I really like to see the removal's on the scale. I don't like to see the add on's. The add on amount is +0.4 pounds. Although not that much, but nonetheless it's an add on. I just have to work harder this week to see a removal for next week's weigh in. My total now is 23.4 pounds removed!!!!

I'll reach my goal I just have to work harder and I know I can do this. I have been busy with my Aunt. It is difficult to see her in such pain. I wish she didn't have to endure that pain. I will do all I can to help take care of her and keep her comfortable.

Week 7 of my Journey!

I am really getting into this weight removal....I know I changed it, but I did say I was changing it from "loss" to "removal." I don't want to ever find this weight again. I am making the change for life. I want to be healthy for my family and for myself. I need to be there for the needs of my family.

I have been a bit more active this week. I can feel the change in energy level. I'm liking the feeling. I am now more involved with my Aunt's care at this point. She is now in hospice care. We are now there 24/7. I am now with my shift of hours between 37 to 50 hours. I can do it!!! I know I can stay on track with this. I just have to adjust my family schedule a bit to accommodate my Aunt's needs. I need to be here for her and I need to be there for my family. I will have to however put my crafts off for a bit. I don't want to stop all together, but I'm going to have to slow down.

I went to weigh in this morning I'm hoping the benefits of activity have paid off. We'll see. The meeting was great. I love the encouragement that comes from these meetings. I feel encouraged not only from the leaders, but from the people participating in the program as well. Ok... I have held off long enough... drum roll please..... I had a -1.8 pound removal!!! YEA!!!! I'm so happy!!!!! That now makes 23.8 pounds now removed!!!!

Week 6 of my Journey!

This is going well. I really like the changes I'm seeing. I am having issues with one pair of jeans though. LOL I have to say that I did something funny. I added a second button to my jeans because we don't have the funds at the moment that I can buy another pair. I would go to the thrift store, but they don't get clothes in my size often. I'll make these work until I can't do anything with them. Let's see how we do.

I'm home now from weigh in the meeting was great. I love them they are really informative. I really feel like I'm being accountable when I go to them. I feel really encouraged to go again next week with another "removal". I have a removal this week of -0.6 pounds!!!! Yea!!! It may not be that much but I figure any removal is a good one!!! I'm so happy!!! That makes a new total of 22.4 pounds now removed!!!
