I am here, still holding, ain't going nowhere! Although I haven't been here like I want, I've surely been thinking about yall nearly everyday. It's been hard, I'm working 2 jobs now. I'm in management at a store near me and part time nights in midtown. So, my time is limited. Don't think I'm avoiding my besties!

As of this morn 11/23/11 I'm officially down 50lbs. I feel like I'm winning and coming out of the other end!

I've initiated a challenge with my co-workers. January 1st me and about 10 other people will start what I call, Healthy Habits Weight Loss Challenge.
Every month we all put $5 in the pot, the one who loses the most for that month wins the pot for that month. Then we all put up $5 more for the next month, and so on.

D, when I go off the deep end I'm feeling deprived. I'm feeling like I should be able to have this, but I can't.

I was feeling so ill, passing out ill... I needed to get back right, eating right, and I am. I am a daily work in progress. Thank you all for traveling with me!

Hey Yall What a month it has been! Oh how things change. I've been having prob with this computer, been down for weeks. I'm a big ball of stress, but pushing through. . I resigned from the mangmt job, it was toooooo stressful and demanding of my time. Mandatory 60hrs a week plus the 35-40hr at my night job. The only time my kids saw me was sleep walking or COMA SLEEP!

I've put a few lbs! I know! Wanna kick my own arse all up and down the road! But unlike before I'm concious and mindful of not giving up or in completely. Jan 1, I'm full fledged re-committing myself again! I'll consider the previous loss a head start!

I am currently dealing with an overzealous boss on my night job who is stressing me and the whole crew right now! I'm just praying for peace! I'm not good with stress so yall pray for ME!

Anyway! I'll be seeing u all... ALOT! LOVES YA!

Lord start my year off right! It just seems to be a shaky start to the New Year but I refuse to give it confusion importance! I gotta do better!

So I'm getting my groceries prepared and my mind set ready. My mind is all over the place and I really have to focus if I'm going to succeed.

So this time next year my goal is much broader. A total of "at least" 100lb lost. I know me and goals suck but here ya go!

Hello Keisha,

2012 has to be our year!!! Me myself? I am sick and tired of being sick and tired. My Day unfortunately does not begin until the 10th of January (financial reasons). But once it begins it is on. I look forward to the journey. We can do this!!!

Hey toots. How's things? Holidays are evil with all this crap food sneaking in my mouth! Detoxing for the past week... Scale not budging much though. It's frustrating but better than the scale moving UP! Hope you are well!

HEY GIRLS!

I do beleive that everything happens for a reason. I still have been sulking and in bed for a few days. It is what it is. I've never been one to go along with BS, especially if it directly effects me or someone not able to speak up for themselves. I can't look at BS in the mouth and be ok with it. That has always been my down fall.(my old fashioned Mom use to say) Guess I'll be looking into opening my own buisness again. Maybe another beauty salon. I'm building my treasures up above not here on this ever passing earth.

Okay back to this. Glad to see u need2bhealthy, it's been a while. Still have your blog? Oh Amy girl the things I whipped up in my kitchen... It was horrible... and so delicious. My sisters came down for Thanksgiving and my in laws came down for Christmas and they all expected a huge spread and baby I didn't disappoint. I got off work at 6am cHristmas morning, My kids were sitting under the tree waiting for me. I blasted the holiday music, let them open gifts and started cooking. By 3pm, the pies were baked, turkey fried, ham. mac n cheese, dressing, greens, black eyed peas, gibblet gravy, cornbread, cranberry sauce. Let's eat! Carb Load Baby! D so glad to see you still trucking along. I tell ya what, we will get there... I don't know when exactly but, sooner or later darn it!!! Be Blessed Yall! Loves Ya!

Hey sweetie,

Yes I do still have my blog and I'm reimplementing in my plan again. You know it is quite amazing, I know when I eat this way I feel amazing! I just don't get why it has been so hard to stay on it.

You had an amazing down home Christmas girl!!! We did the mac n cheese, greens, dressing, but we went a little non-traditional on the meat and had prime rib. I was over the turkey.

I wanted chtterlings so badly but money didn't allow it.

I say we do what we need to do to make 2012 as healthy as we can. It can be done!!!

I went a bit nuts at Christmas also. I sometimes am okay with eating off plan, get right back on and sometimes I am off plan for WAY longer than planned! I am beginning to think that it is about SUGAR for me. I can eat some wheat/bready stuff and be okay. I eat SUGAR and I am off the rails for WEEKS. Sucks.

So far so good! But,... there's always a but... the snacking on nuts is out of control! Oh, and the pb. Going into my second week of committing, the snacking is getting under control.

need2bhealthy, I'll have to check out your blog! I'm done setting goals with weight loss for a minute, and I'm just gonna go with it! I always seem to derail myself and focau on a day when I do that and convince myself that if I eat this I'll be ok by this. So I'm just gonna do my best! Good luck on the journey girl.

amy, glad you've noticed your trigger food. I think starch and sweets are my triggers I started working out bit by bit. Idk, this battle seems to be going on forever!

Bigbone we can do this!!! This journey for me has gone on way to long as well. But I am now 445 pounds over weight and I literally have no life because of it.

I used to be that party girl that went out and did her thang. But I can't even do that right now. Everything under the sun has set in as a result of this weight gain. From depression to pain to so on and so on.

I am OVER IT!!!!! I just recently got real pissed and motivated. I have to do this!!!

Need2B... Sometimes it takes for us to get mad as he- double L, in order for us to make a change. I can totally relate to how u are feeling. My deepest prayers and loudest cheers go out to you girl.! If we just keep pecking and pecking away at it... It much better than doing nothing at all.

This is not a race... put one foot in front of thee other, and always stay one foot ahead. We shall fall, but we must GET UP! That's what I've been learning. I am not perfect, but my flaws took years to come into fruitation. It will take years to get them ALL under control! The older I get... the more I learn... about myself and the world around me. I just decided to stop and learn from my mistakes, then get it together and keep moving foward. I call it the 90/10, 95/5, heck sometimes it's the 50/50, and unfortunately even the 20/80. As long as I'm doing good 90% of the time, it'll eventually get closer to 99%.

LC'ing is going okay. I tink I've been overdoing the nuts, pb, salad dressing still and not enough water and sleep. I gotta get back into the groove and train my mind and my taste buds... AGAIN!!!!!!!!!! Onward and UP... or hopefully... DOWNward!

Keep on chugging away! I am re-determined for the billionth time! I think I will stay away from sugar for a good long while, though. Threw me for a big loop over Christmas. Evil evil stuff...
