- week


I am done this week and back to what I was before the holidays. We have still not put or elliptical machine back up from christmas but all the running around I have been doing seems to be helping.  I am trying to be more observant about what is going in my mouth from liquid to solids and trying to keep it all on the up and up.  I am hoping that I can continue making the positive changes needed to continue in my loss and I know that it starts with the little things first.

Food- pretty good considuring I am on my period and only want to eat sliders
Water- I am back up to 4-5 glasses a day from like 1 so again small changes working back up to the 8.
Meds- all there all taken
Workouts- sigh, this is where I am a loser.  I only did one work out this week but it has also been a really bad period. 
Mental- doing pretty well right now.  Getting back into the non holiday groove and I am starting to actually try and wear clothes that fit instead of my old too big clothes.  So hard to kick that comfort of baggy non clingy clothes.

My Fitness Pal

I have a my fitness pal account and I hope that I keep up with it.  I have tried calorie counting websites before and just get so overwhelmed with the constant upkeep that I usually stop.  I hope that I can keep it up though.  At least just for tracking weight and excersise if nothing else.  I know I gotta do something to get off the plateau.  Also, I am going to add another ticker up top for my count down to my 100 mark!

+ weeks


Sigh, well it has been an off 3 weeks.  We have had 2 dealths in our extended family, I had strep and my husband now has staph in his leg and can barely walk.  This all adds up to stress, no excersize and eating slider foods that are fast and easy to cook (or not cook).  I gained most of the 5 pounds during the week that I had strep.  I don't know if it was the antibiotics, the lots of coughdrops and nyquil or all of the above.  Or only being able to eat cold smooth things for a few days.  Oh well.  I am hoping that once my husband gets well enough we can get my elliptical back into place (too heavy to move on my own) so that I can start working on my 2012 goal.

Week in evaluation:
Food: not good but not bad. 
Water: Bad.  I need to drink more
Meds:  All taken plus a few more
Mental:  I need to find out why I am so stressed out all the time and a way to fix that.

I really don't do new year's resolutions because they always seem to be doomed to failure but I do make yearly goals that I think about and know that they are attainable and make smaller goals to help keep me on path.  So here are my goals for this year.  Well, my weight loss goals anyways. 

1.  Post at least once a week on my blog and comment more on the ones I follow.  This is one that was sacrificed for time management reasons and I keep reading everyones posts but don't have time to comment or post my own.  I have noticed that when I made that time cut my motivation dropped too. 

2.  Reach my 100lbs lost goal.  I am two pounds from 80 now and so I am hoping that 22 lbs in 12 months is not too much to ask for but you never know.  I have my game plan set and my husband is still pushing me along so I am hoping to keep 2+ pounds a month loss.  I know that doesn't seem like much but those with PCOS know that every pound seems to take forever!

3.  Finish the couch to 5K program.  This is the big one.  I am still on week one for heavens sake!  I am still getting my knees and body acclaimated to running with this amount of fat on it.  For others the program is 9 weeks for me it will be much longer  but it is one that I can set mini goals and continue to work towards. 

4.  Be more open about my surgery.  I am still really private about my surgery to others but as the weight comes off and I am more comfortable with my results I am talking to people that I think are truely interested in my loss.  I still pish posh those that are just nosey but I am hoping that I can start helping others with wieght loss and knowing that they are not alone. 

5.  Stop seeing myself as a 350lbs woman.  Ok, so this one is a bit resolutionish but it really is an important goal for me.  I still see myself at my starting weight.  I don't try new things often and still check chairs to see if they can handle my butt.  It upsets my husband that I have not changed this point of view yet but I had it for 8 years so it is not like it will just go away.  I am going to try and work on this new perspective. 

I am looking forward to being held accountable to my new goals and will keep you updated.  I will also start commenting more on all of your posts too.
