I'm back! Day one all over again ...

I'm back!!  =)   I have had a pretty busy week at work this week trying to pick up as many hours as I possibly could so that I could pay all my bills on the first of the month! Someone commented on my journal yesterday and it gave me the motivation to update. Mostly because I have gotten a little bit off track. I even ate a real meal yesterday at work. And I downed the entire thing. Overall, the meal was probably at least a good 800 calories. I have been trying to write off my snacking urges due to my upcoming period, but I can't blame it all on that. I think a lot of it had to do with the fact that I haven't been posting on here and so I didn't have to keep as close of tabs on what I was eating, even though I have been trying really hard to exercise at least a little bit everyday. I weighed in at 166.5 this morning! WOO HOO. Except that yesterday I was 166. So it's good news on here since apparently the last time I updated I was over 170 and I was trying hard to break that 170 mark and I finally did. But I am disappointed in myself for gaining that half a pound. I even worked a double at work yesterday (meaning being on my feet constantly moving for about 10 hours or so) and then I stopped at the gym at 8:30 at night before they closed at 9:30 to get in a quick work out. My workout last night was decent. I've been spending a lot of time on the stair stepper because it is the one that I feel like I work the hardest and have the most motivation for and plus my calves are starting to show a little definition instead of just flab, which is nice! For some reason I have not had the motivation to get on the treadmill for awhile. Anyways, enough rambling. I would really like to stay on track from this point. I am definitely going to miss my goal of 150 by the 5th of July. Some surprise. But I am going to set new goals right now that might be more realistic with my circumstances these days. And I am going to try and stay away from meats because I think that is contributing to my snacking problem.

New Goals:

July 5 - 164
July 12 - 160
July 19 - 157
July 26 - 154
August 2- 150

That will give me about a month to lose just over 15 pounds. I think that is very reasonable and it should keep me motivated to see that I'm not missing my goals. We shall see! I think I am noticing a difference in my body but I'm not sure so I'm so excited to see what I look like at 150 again!

Wish me luck! Have a great week everyone!

Thanks for the comments! =) It definitely helps! lol I haven't really had the time to look around LJ for other users and start getting any active readers or anything so I kinda just write to write and to help me stay on track. I am happy I'm still making progress too!

it's good to see youre still making progress. I know that having people there reading updates can be helpful. I've had a few friends go on diets. apparently, their husbands didnt really care, but they had online support. HOPEFULLY, youre not doing this alone. I can tell how much it means to you.

yeah online support does help! i am kind of doing it alone, my sister wants to do it with me, but she doesn't have the same discipline as I do so if we go work out together she tends to give up when I'm only like halfway through my workout and she hasn't changed her eating habits at all. I can definitely tell that my boyfriend is happy that I am taking an interest in being healthy and he also seems happy with the changes in my body since I have been losing, but he doesn't actively ask any questions about it. So besides you leaving a few comments, the only support I really have had is my mom and posting on LJ everyday! Thanks for the comments =) as simple as they may be, they keep me motivated too! How did you come across my journal? Are you looking into starting a diet too or something along those lines?

well, first, I came across your LJ NOT because I am looking to diet (I'm 5'8, about 165-170). I'm fairly trim for my size. I used to work out every day. I'd run 2-3 miles and then do some lifting. BUT things happen and that fell off. I'm thinking about getting some new exercise equipment. I'd like to get a little more tone and definition. I'd also like to eat healthier. I could use a little less sodium in the diet. but the reason I took interest in your LJ is because I enjoy reading about new people. I was looking up some LJ searches on different topics. I like reading and commenting more than actually posting on my own. anyway, you looked interesting and I saw that your profile said you were looking for some support and yet you had no actual comments. SO I had to leave a comment. I have 3 friends that are trying to lose weight. their husbands dont really seem to care or help. so I know support can be helpful, even if it's online. having somebody you're accountable to also helps. BUT anyway, hope youre having a good holiday weekend.

Well thank you! =) That's pretty cool that you enjoy the commenting and everything. I do too, I just don't have the time for it. Let alone post in my own journal! Thanks for the support, it definitely helps! Maybe I'll update soon too ;)
