Good morning, Lex! Seems like you've been doing pretty good with getting in physical activity -- I've gotta work on that aspect myself.

Bachelorette this weekend? Woot, woot! I know you're looking forward to it!

How did I miss that it was Laila's birthday? Smh...I blame it on the fact that I'm usually half-awake in mornings. LOL.

Hey girls! sorry i havent posted in a month. sometimes you just need a break. im still in the in the race. failing at the moment but havent given up.

I got on the scale today and saw 215. my lowest last year in november was 195 so im up about 20 lbs since then. I feel like i am trying to track my calories and don't feel like im overeating but i think im lying to myself. my workouts have suffered. im still making it at least 2X/week but thats not enough and im drinking more. booze and weight loss just don't get along.

i am scared that i will gain all of my weight back. i think the fear is healthy, and i plan to use it as a motivator. i need to think long and hard and need to make some changes or 6 more months will go back and i'll be seeing 240 on the scale and so on and so forth. I just can't let that happen.

Maintaining is harder than losing in my opinion. this is a battle i will fight forever. i need to find the focused and motivated girl from last year again. This is definitely a turning point of sorts, which direction will i take. i just need to find balance. i don't have to restrict myself from anything BUT everything needs to be in moderation and I need to keep track of EVERYTHING that passes my lips and get my rear to the gym.

I will try to get my regular posts back up and running on here. I seem to do better when im posting regularly.

ps the wedding was so much fun. i'll post pics below!

So glad to see you back Lexi! You are right......sometimes you just need a break! Take it one day or even 1 meal at a time, you'll get your Mojo back!

The pics from the wedding are wonderful! You are just beautiful! Glad you had a great time.

Take care!

It is a lifelong struggle, those of us that have the disposition to be heavier the weight wants to creep back on, it is on going! And it piles on 10x faster than it comes off! We have all been where you are, we have to just keep fighting, like honestly I do feel so much better getting back to working out, I am like it is not that hard to make time for it, it is really easy to lay on the couch and watch the DVR!!! One step at a time, gaining back weight is so frustrating, but it will come off again! You can do it!!! You looked amazing at the wedding!!! Really more pretty than the bride!!!!

It is a lifelong struggle. its super scary too. you feel great you lost it and say "im never going back" then 6 months goes by and you're up 20 lbs! grr.
it is easier to go home and sit on the couch! but i know we ALWAYS feel so much better about getting a workout in. i just wish it werent so hard and i didn't fight with myself about going! i'd almost always rather just go to the gym afterwork, that way im burning cals instead of sitting on the couch eating them. i sleep better too!

thank you for the compliment :0) i have to say i am pleased with how i looked, i was worried the dress wouldnt flatter me but i should have known better. Black always flatters lol.

Good plan Lexi!

4 day weekend here too as I took Tuesday off as well. My sister is coming for a visit, so we'll have lots of sister bonding time. We're planning a long walk on the rail trail near my home to burn some holiday calories!

Enjoy!

Hey girls. im not going anywhere near the scale haha. i did go to bootcamp this am. planning to go everyday the rest of the week. thinking about trying to give fasting another go. i really hate it but it works. at this point i just want to lose even a little to try and keep from gaining more. we'll see.

have a funeral tomorrow, DHs uncle passed away, we're doing dinner with the family tonight. its sad but he was deteriorating so hes in a better place now. just feel bad for the wife kids grandkids etc.

well hope everyone is well. talk to you soon!

Hi Lexi!

Sorry for your family's loss. It's always hard.

Good for you for getting back to exercise. Just don't overdo it and hurt yourself. Remember, I know how hard boot camp is!

Lexi you know I struggled getting up at 5 to go to the gym and then realized my son is 13 he doesnt care where I am, LOL Now with Tony getting home earlier at the new job I am not feeling guilty about taking an hour after dinner to go to the gym, it is literally 2 minutes from my house, so no excuse! I am liking the Les Mills classes the Body Pump one is my favorite. I am sore! Tonight is something else I have never been to, I will try that, kettle bells and weighted balls and stuff! It sucks but we can do it!

Happy Monday ladies, thanks for all of your support, it means the world. the scale was so ugly today. saw a number i haven't seen since last year at this time. I did get 4 workouts in last week and went out sat night in a new dress that was a size 13 in the juniors section, go figure?!? i hate sizing. i just tried it with high hopes thinking "you never know" haha and it fit and looked great and i loved it. anyway. i decided to try and give fasting another try. its hard. i did so well with it last year but this year i haven't been able to make it two weeks. im just going to focus on getting through today. I'll worry about thursdays fast on thursday.

my daughter has a full weekend of softball so that'll keep me busy which is good. i need to be busy on weekends so im not stuffing my face when im bored.

well thats all except we planning a quick one night trip in July to KC. we're taking the kids to the schlitterbahn waterpark. KC is like 3 hours away so we'll get up early sat am, drive down, go to the waterpark for a few hours. Then our hotel hosts cocktails so i think we'll do that then head over to my fav KC BBQ place called Jacks Stack. Technically we're staying in overland park but thats nearby. So anyway thats about 7 weeks away from now. im going to have a goal of being under 205 lbs by then. thats totally doable if i keep fasting.

well wish me luck for today!

I love the dress on you...very cute! You've got a nice tan going on too. My half-Irish self can only gaze longingly at that tan, LOL.

I'm right here with ya in the battle. Not sure what I weigh today b/c I haven't checked since Friday, I think. I gotta buckle down myself!
