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.

I almost forgot my measurements today. I am disgusted for sure now. I have gained 2 pounds since the 30th and only lost 2 inches. It shows that my hard work was paying off before and how much the slacking I have been doing the past few weeks. TIME TO GET IN GEAR!!!!!!!!!!

Easy, Reva! I don't see any slacking. I see extraordinary circumstances and I see determination. And, um, 2 inches is great!! An inch a week? Sorry, but that's really good.

Now, just do what you do!

When I woke up this morning and saw this awesome whoosh I was in shock. I am now in a new low. I also realized that Saturday marked 5 months down on low carb. I am now down 92 pounds.

Today, no excuses I go back to the gym five days a week. I also ordered the Zumba workout dvds lastnight. They should arrive in 3 to 7 business days. I am excited to give them a try.

to my wonderful LCF family. You ladies just blow me away!!

Casey I have always just ate s/f ice cream on special occasions in the past. I am so happy that it doesn't taste the best these days to me. They give me the awfullest gas so I know my family is happy I don't eat it often either.

Laura how was the weather for you Yesterday? I enjoyed some time out with just myself. I went to lunch with a friend and then did a little shopping for the kids some Valentines stuff. I even went and cleaned out the van. It was awful.

Amber I know I was just being too hard on myself. What was I thinking? A loss in measurement in any number is just awesome. Slap me upside the head anytime and snap me into reality please!!!

BWYA I will be over your way to check your journal out today now that I got my head out of my butt.

nikki you are right. I have to take care of myself. I am the only one who let myself reach 377.

Sara I just love the swim suit that you ordered. You will be one hot mama!!!! This is going to be your summer!!!

martini I am so ready to ride on out to goal. Thank you for keeping me in line.

Phranquie we can do this!! I am here cheering you on!!

lilmrschevy we are going to have to meet sometime. It is crazy how close we live near one another.


Hubby and I are going to lunch some where so I am not quite sure of what my menu looks like today yet. I will post my days menu once we figure out where we are eating.

I feel 100 times better after I got my butt to the gym.

Tonight I did 20 minutes on the treadmill at 3 speed for a total of 1 mile.

4 Sets of 12, 10, 8, 6

Leg press machine 70 pounds

Seated hamstring curl machine 70 pounds

Seated calf machine 20 on each side

Standing glute machine 50 pounds


Hubby and I ended up going to Buffalo Wild Wings for lunch. It was really good. I had naked chicken tenders with ranch and a nice side salad with ranch. We had a really nice time even though Jeriah was with us. He bought the beautifulest gold chain with a key on it that says love in the middle. I also go a stuffed Mickey Mouse which is my favorite. I truly needed a day like today.

I didn't eat any breakfast but had some grilled chicken for dinner topped with 1 tbsp alfredo white sauce.

Laura you always have confidence in me.

Amber you always enlighten me. I didn't even look at it like 2 pounds a week. I will take that any day.

The picture sure turned out crappy. Sorry!

Feb. 1 ~ 289.0
Feb. 2 ~ 290.2
Feb. 3 ~ 289.0
Feb. 4 ~ 286.8
Feb. 5 ~ 287.0
Feb. 6 ~ 286.4
Feb. 7 ~ No Weigh in
Feb. 8 ~ 286.0
Feb. 9 ~ 286.0
Feb.10~ 287.0
Feb.11~ No weigh in
Feb.12~291.0 (right back to where I was in Jan. )
Feb.13~288.6
Feb.14~285.0
Feb.15~283.4

Starting to think that reaching the 100 pound mark for February is still possible if I stay buckled down.

I am starting to get excited about going to the Dr. on Thursday. I haven't been since I started losing weight so I am anxious to see what he has to say. I have been putting off going to for quite awhile now. I think I may need to have my b/p and heart meds adjusted. We shall see.

I will be going to the gym sometime today for a cardio workout. Dh is working his double shift today and the kids won't be home till 2:50 so it will be after that. I may also just get out and about with the baby for a bit. He doesn't get to get out much and it is suppose to be nice so I want to take him for a nice ride or something. He loves car rides.

I haven't thought of food yet today but I will post it when I decide.

Hi! Martini! Valentines Day was definitely a hit this year.

Laura I am really trying to build my confidence. I have just had very low self-esteem for most of my adult life so this is new for me to start building it up.

Reva:
You are going to hit that 100 pound mark in no time, I know how you feel, I have terrible self esteem issues, I keep thinking how many pounds does it take to start feeling better about yourself? Last night Tony got me clothing for V-day, from Banana Republic, and I was like OMG I never went there, and he bought XL, and I was like there is no way I can wear this, and I tried it on and it fit, I still see myself as huge, and no matter how many people say it, notice it, I just wonder when it will start to sink in? I am right there with ya on that.
