My head shoot



Between being a sick kid and this crazy snow storm I have not been eating as well as I should, so I am back on phase one of South Beach :(  NO worries though!  I did not gain it all at once; I am not going ot lose it all at once! 

Have a happy diet!

Almost at the 20lb mark!

Yes, it is true!  I have lost 17 pounds thanks to South Beach and my friends on FatSecret.com and I am glad to see that at least one other person is on here and posting, lol!  I still will be back here to check in.  I just wish there were more people on this blog.  Oh well!

One Month!

One month on South Beach and ten pounds lighter! 

I am digging this site I found... fatsecret.com.  Like sparkpeople.com but instead of encouraging their diet you can choose the diet you are on and it links you with people, recipes, message boards, etc. for just that diet!

Another site, hungrygirl.com has so many great ideas!    I am really digging Vitamuffins thanks to them.

Have a happy diet!

MY morning started at 2:00AM!

2:00AM woke to screaming toddler who has night terrors

5:00AM went back to my bed

5:30AM alarm went oof for husband

6:00AM husband woke me to ask me if I set the alarm for 5:30AM

6:01AM asked husband to let me sleep another 29 mins

6:26AM open eyes to stare blankly at Robin on Headline News

6:30AM made it to shower

6:45AM turned lights on in toddler's room to wake him

7:00AM showered, dressed, made lunch and got toddler's stuff to go to grandma's house

7:15AM woke toddler. dressed toddler. fended off crying toddler's right jab and wrestled with him to stay out of bed where he despertly wanted to be.

7:45AM dropped screaming, crying toddler off at my moms.

8:20AM arrived at work twenty mins late and with out my lunch

9:00AM FINALLY! Coffee.

I am hungry and irritated that I lost my lunch, lol.

My mantra today: I am going to stick to my diet. I am going to stick to my diet. I am going to stick to my diet. I am going to stick to my diet. I am going to stick to my diet. I am going to stick to my diet. I am going to stick to my diet. I am going to stick to my diet. I am going to stick to my diet. I am going to stick to my diet. I am going to stick to my diet.

I know it has been awhile since I have been on LJ so I thought I would start here! I have finally reconnected with the inner skinny girl that lives inside me and said, "Hello!" Four weeks ago I went back on South Beach diet. I joined fatsecret.com for added support and I am eight pounds light! Baby steps but it is something!

So... Is any one else out there looking to share?

(no subject)

Does anyone else get to feeling like, what's the point of working out if I can't be beautiful the way I am?

I want to be healthy, and I want my new boyfriend to think I'm sexy and be proud of me, but the biggest thing keeping me from working out this morning like I had planned is that feeling like...why should I bother if nobody likes me just the way I am?

And FYI my boyfriend does like me, I'm not putting words into his mouth...I just feel more self-concious than I have in a long time about my looks (and my behavior).

I have not been actively participating in SparkPeople like I was but I have been watching very closely what I eat. In other words, I have not lost or gained any, lol. I have been sitting on my balance ball and doing pilates (okay pilates once a week *giggle*) and I feel good.

I have also come to the conclusion I like myself naked. I feel fatter with clothes on, lmao.

I also started taking my birth control at night and I don't seem to be as hungry during the day. So maybe BC does not make you gain wait but I swear it fucks with feelings of hunger.

So here is my question... What are some ways you curb hunger? Grapefruit juice is great but that is still a lot of sugar and the actual fruit... well I am too lazy for that. I know there are websites and books dedicated to this concept. I just wanted to know what people here think...

Visible Loss

Well, even though I've totally felt just--MAD at food this week, I've still lost another two ounces. That puts my loss at 4 oz. total. It's not much, but I know it's legit since it's not popping around all over the place like crazy.

Sick and in need of some me time!

Okay, so the diet thing... umh I mean "changing my eating and life style" has been put on hold. I have not recorded anything this week at SparkPeople and I cannot even for sure say that what I have been eating has been all bad (having no appetite) but it has not been all-good either.

Still loving my balance ball at work but have not done a lick of exercise this week out side of wander aimlessly around Target.

I love Target.

I want to relax this weekend but reflecting on the state I left my house, highly unlikely.

A bath might be the thing I need right after I clean the tub and while I am there the floor, and the sink. Garbage needs to be emptied and the mirrors washed, holy crap the toilet. I guess I could wash the shower curtain and throw the rugs in the wash machine. While the rugs are washing Corey could use a bath and my the time the rugs dry he will be ready for bed after the lotioning and the tug o' war it takes to get the PJs on him. Then I can sit and watch something on TV... wait wasn't I going to take a bath?

Ah well, it's a process, it's a process, it's a process (my mantra for today, lol)
