Yesterday I did 5 minutes on the treadmill to warm up and 5 on the elliptical to cool down.

4 Sets of 12, 10, 8, 6

Leg press machine 60 pounds

Seated hamstring curl machine 50 pounds

Seated calf machine 20 on each side

Standing glute machine 40 pounds

I felt so much better beable to get back to the gym. I missed three days in a row and could really tell the difference in how I was feeling. Today is a cardio day and I am hoping to get in a good 45 min. to an hour.

Lil Angel's funeral is this morning. She looked so at peace last night. It felt so good to know she doesn't have to suffer anymore. I am saddened that this happened but also feel a relief from the man up stairs that she doesn't have to suffer here on Earth anymore. So many people brought in her favorite toys and music that it felt like she was right there with us. It will be hard this morning for us but with Gods help we will all make it thru this.

B~ 2 egg omelet with crumbled sausage

S~ 1 serving macadamia nuts

L~ tuna, boiled egg, 1 tbsp dukes mayo

D~ pork roast, 1 tbsp ranch

Reva- hun my prayers are with you today!

Missing a few days at the gym you can really tell a difference, I guess that is why they say when people stop working out they lose so much muscle mass and stamina.

Here I sit on a Saturday morning with a stomach ache from hell. I have consumed so many nuts in the past few days that I think I am going to explode. Why did I do this to myself? I see now that I have not over come the power that I let food have over me when under stress and sadness. I am feeling like I do when I over load on chocolate and pepsi. This is a scary feeling. Its time to get a handle on my emotions and get my arse back in gear. I only went to the gym one day this week. What am I am thinking? Life is always going to throw a wrench in the mix of things, but damn will I always let food control me? I have probably eaten a good pound of half of different nuts over the past few days. I thank God that I didn't even get tempted by eating non legal carbs. This morning I am buckling back down and getting myself together to continue my journey to a healthy weight. No excuses, I just will not let food control me again!
I am right back where I was at the end of January. I refuse to be back any where close to 300 again. I just will not go there. I am going back to the Dr. on Thursday. This will be the first time since I started low carbing again. He has no idea I have been losing weight. I am going to work my tail off this week to lose as much as I possibly can. Yes, I know its water weight and it will come back off but it isn't pretty seening those dreaded numbers on the scale again.


This morning I am heading to the gym just as soon as one of the bigger kids get up. They all had friends spend the night so it may be a bit.

Then, I babysit this afternoon so I can't plan much. It is suppose to be beautiful out so I may go out and clean out the van and then head to look at some car lots. I am thinking of trading in my van for something else.

Not sure of my meals yet today but I will post them when I figure it out.

Sara, Laura, Casey and Amber thank you for the compliment on my new picture. It is the only thing I felt good about all week long.

Hugs mama! I have been going through the same food troubles this week (although I have no excuses as I am not going through anything near what you are) Ya know sometimes life happens.. you are not out of control. I was! Eating 2 boxes of girlscout cookies and everything else that crossed my path for 3 days (hiding it from my husband) it was scary for me too. I saw my weight get up to 299 this week and I freaked out! WTH was I thinking?? Reva, we didn't get as big as we did without having serious problems with food. This will not be fixed over night (or in 6 months either) I am afraid this is a battle we will have for the rest of our life. We just have to LOVE ourselves and our family enough to not let it get out of contol again. Love you mama! We are going to stumble, but we are determined! And we are gonna make it! Hang in there!!

Reva- I know what you are saying and Casey and Laura said it best, we all let life get the best of us, we fall but the difference is we get back right up and get back on track, what got us to over 300 pounds was never getting back on track. That is where you have to be kind to yourself and say OK, I was out of control I had a bad week, now I am focusing on me and being in control again, that is the difference seeing it and acting on it. I know we are going away for the weekend I will probably eat and drink things I shouldn't but it is life and this is for a lifetime, but come Monday I will be back on it!

We can do this, part of learning to keep this off for life is learning how to overcome those obstacles, we are here for you!

Casey I ordered six boxes of girl scout cookies for the kids and hubby. The thin mints and samoas are my all time favorite. I could devour a whole box in one sitting before. I WILL NOT BE TEMPTED by those evil things....... that you have been going thru the monster alone. My dh spotted it first off and asked me what I was doing to myself. He was right. What was I doing to myself but feeding old habits. We will get thru this my friend. We are here for one another every step of the way. We really need to exchange numbers so when we get in a funk like these we are here for one another.

Laura I love you too lady!! You are all like my family here. I have beat myself up all week over Angels death. I don't know what I would do if something happened to one of my babies. I think that is what has had me so freaked out. I was ok until I went to the visitation at the funeral home on Tuesday and then I just lost myself.

BWYA you are exactly right. I have to just move on. Casey was right when she said we have this battle for the rest of our lives.

I am getting right back up Amber. Its not like I cheated or anything but when I woke up this morning I was feeling like I had failed myself and my family. As I sit here and take a huge look at the picture I realize that I took a huge step in just admitting to myself and you ladies that I let my guard down. I am moving forward in this journey and will not let myself be down about it anymore.

You are a better woman than me!!! I went into hiding for a week! It helps when you make yourself accountable. By not coming on the board I let it go on longer than I should have. I knew once I came back I would have to face the music. This right here proves how STRONG you really are!

Amber I didn't honestly look at it only being a 2 pound difference. Thank you for setting me straight. 2 pounds? Come on, I know I will get thru this and make it to my February goal. No more beating myself up over some stupid nuts.

Casey you and I both very strong women and will get thru this funk together.

Casey sweetie we are in this WOE for life, so what if you took a week off...look how many weeks you have left....some times maybe it's good to take a week off and think about things and just eat to sooth our selves. This is a hard self sacrificing thing we are doing but you and Reva and Amber will do this... I know it in my heart, you all want it too badly to fail.

I can say you lovely ladies are still doing great! We are all human and things happen to put a little set back in our lives. At times we have no controll over but, just look how far you all have come. I wish I could say the same for myself. I went to the doctor yesterday and she was not pleased with my weight. I told myself I would not get to 300 lbs and I'm getting close, now I can say I've gotta do something about it. There are no excuses this time, my life depends on it!

P.S. U ladies rock!

Reva,

I look at my thin friends and see how they eat and you know what? ,,,,they don’t always eat great either. They splurge, eat things they didn’t plan and everything else that those with weight issues do. The difference I see is that they recover and don’t continue. If they have a bad day or week they don’t let it snowball into weeks, months and years. I really think there are very few people who are so seriously regimented that they always eat strictly on whatever their dietary plan is. I think this is a huge issue for those of us who are overweight. When we are losing weight we are very strict and don’t allow small failures and then it is too easy for us to get derailed. You actually stayed on l/c foods which is amazing. You also did not let it snowball any further. You had the personal insight to recognize that you were falling back into old patterns. I think that this is a great milestone for an over eater. I hope I have the strength and insight that you have had when my stressful weeks come up.

I got here too late to say any of the sage like things that the ladies above me did first, but Reva girl, you know we are here for you and I have nothing but faith in you and your dedication to yourself. Sometimes our attention comes away from ourselves when tragic things happen, but in the end it's always got to be #1. And here you are, back on track (not that you really ever fell off), and back looking out for #1. You're a very strong woman, we all see it and I know you know it too, you just lost sight of it for a minute.
