Starting week 3

Some days are hard and some not so hard! Yesterday we went to church and then up to Nashville to see Levi so I ate horribly and thought for sure I would not have lost any lbs last week but when I got on my scale this morning I was greeted by a 3lbs loss so excited and proud of my self, I just keep thinking I can do it.
I was unable to do most of my exercise last week, my back was hurting so I was laying on the couch and Kaipo jumped on me and hurt it bad, my back was really messed up for about 4 days.

Starting week 2

Well now that my weight loss has slowed down (I knew it was coming) it is harder to keep with the program. My wonderful kids broke my charging cord so I have not posted but it is all fixed now. This weekend my youngest son turned 4 and I only had a small bite of cake and was good. I am dealing with a lot of back and feet pain but I know no pain no gain and soon I wont have as much weight to carry around and it will be easier.
I knew the first week I would lose a lot everyday so posted everyday on my weight loss tracker now that it has slowed down I will post my weight loss everyweek.

Day 3

Today has gone pretty good even though I am starting to lose some momentum, think I am just tiered and it just a small hump in the road easily stepped over. My breakfast oatmeal was actually good I did not even miss all the butter and sugar I would normally use. Lunch was so good, I tried this new salad dressing and it was yummy. Still cant do the whole exercise video yet hopefully in a week or so when my legs are stronger, I still work up a good sweat doing as much as I can. It is so cute the little ones try to do it with me. I still seam to be hungry a lot but I think it is more from habit then anything else.

The Beginning of the End

I was a very thin child till I reached puberty then I started putting on the weight. At 15 I was a size 11 and thought then I was fat. I got pregnant and gained 25lbs, before I had a chance to lose the baby weight I was pregnant again and gained another 20lbs.

Over the next 15 yrs I ate and ate, from loneliness to depression to just plain boredom, till i was 260lbs. Then I got pregnant again only gained 11lbs but after while nursing my appetite went through the roof and I gained 30lb, got pregnant again and did the same thing.

I am now 37 and weigh 328lbs

The Start of my New Life

Every night when I would go to sleep I would think I wish I could just wake up thinner, knowing I need to do the work but always thinking I CANT.

I don't know what changed my mind but I now know I CAN.

I have not set a short term goal for myself yet, I will get to it, maby :).

My long term goal is to lose 150lbs.

I will be writing about my day to day life on this adventure. I am keeping track of my weight loss and my meals so I know what is working and what is not.

What I am Doing

I am counting calories and portion size.

Eating 5 meals a day.

Exercising at home for 30 mins 1-2 times a day, as

well as keeping the house clean and chasing after 2 toddlers.

Taking a diet pill called OxiElite Pro.

Drinking lots of water.

Not eating after 9pm and going to bed earlier.
