Friday is finally here... I did pretty good last week on program, I used up more (all) of my activity and flex points... plus went over by 5 points, but still lost 1.6!... :o)

This week I'm going to focus on drinking all my water. The week before last I barely made my quota, and last week I didn't make it at all... :o(

Yesterday at my meeting, I told my leader that I am down 29 pounds... she looked at my start weight and said it didn't reflect that... but I explained it's because I've joined and quit but total I am down 29.2 pounds... so she changed my start weight to 196.2 and I got my 10% ring and my 25lb charm, I felt special. Next week I should be down a pound and get my 30lb marker! I'm excited - I like awards.

Yesterday and so far today I haven't journaled... gonna take a break in a bit and balance out my points and food (like a checkbook), I'm scared... but it's only Friday and I have five more days to make this week ROCK!

I just thought of this - weight loss is like riding a bike... it can be smooth, but sometimes you might fall off or wreck into something... all you have to do is get back on and keep riding...

Monday, Monday

I did great this weekend food and exercise wise. I stayed OP, I used a few of my activity points but not many and haven't touched my 35 flex points.

I'm excited about the weigh-in on Thursday... I know I'm only halfway through the week but I'm still excited. I got on the scale this morning it said 166.5! Then I got on a while later and it said 167... my scale might be messing with me... but still that's good. Even if I weigh-in on Thursday at 167 that is still a 3.8 pound loss from last week!

I'm going to get this weight off... No Rush, No Pressure, No Crash Dieting... nice and steady in a healthy manner.

I may not have everything in my life in order right now. Somedays it feels this is the only thing I have in order... but regardless it feels good to have this. Feels good to have gained control of my body again and guiding it to do what I want it to do - and that is to head in the direction of a healthy weight and all around be healthier.

So tell... how did you all do this weekend?

Yesterday was Day 1 of my new campaign REMOVING THE ICKNESS, KEEPING THE THICKNESS... and I KICKED ASS!

As always I'm counting my Weight Watcher's points and am eating off the Fat Smash food list. I am on track today also... I just have to up my water some - I only have 2 glasses in so far.

My goal is to drink 8 glasses of water a day, and do cardio exercise 5 days a week for 30 minutes each. I prefer to workout first thing in the morning... I don't usually work out on Thursdays because I go to an early meeting before work... and today I was just so tired and drained, I couldn't get out of bed.

It's been a tough week for me energy wise. Monday holidays really throw off my work and personal schedule, I'm starting not to like them.

I weighed in yesterday at 170.8, so that means I've got 35.8 pounds to lose. I CAN DO THIS! When I started it was over 60 pounds I had to lose, so I'm almost half way to goal!

I'm a little frustrated with Weight Watchers right now. I haven't had a monthly pass for a few months now... and yesterday when I attended the meeting I signed up for one again... she somehow screwed up - to make a long story short... I called WeightWatchers' hotline today because my log in wouldn't work, they had to reset up my account and in the process deleted all of my stats since September of 2008! WTF - it's all gone... the rep didn't tell me that was gonna happen. All that was kept on there was my starting weight of 196.2.

I'm going through all of my DietSodaDiva accounts right now, trying to get everything updated. I watched some of my youtube videos... WOW I can't believe how fat my face looks compared to now... I'm need to start making videos again soon... when time permits.

I'm looking at my very first video now... I can't believe how big I was... it's kind of depressing me to watch it, but also motivating me to get back in front of the camera.

Once I get organized and everything update you know what's gonna to be coming next... YES A CHALLENGE! I need to think this out and get the details worked out. I want to give away several prizes... and make it fun for everyone. But that'll come later... right now I'm just trying to focus on blogging again, getting caught up on emails and updating my accounts everywhere.

This is going to be a great weight losing weekend and week... I'll def be in the 160's next weigh in and don't plan on sending too much time there.

I'm aiming to be 155 by my birthday - October 17th! I CAN DO THIS! I WILL DO THIS!

Guess Who's Back...

Hello my Divas and Divos...

I'm still a live and well... still pretty down in my weight... gained back about 10 of the 36 I lost. Time to get back on the weight loss wagon. This time just for me... not for everyone else but for my pure pleasure (and good health).

I can't promise to be blog everyday - that was a hard thing to keep up (or try to keep up with), but I def plan on being around a WHOLE lot often. Let me climb back on the wagon, secure myself, and then we'll get some challenges going!

I'm happy to be back, completely motivated and ready to kick the rest of this fat off my body! I've got about 30-35 more pounds to go... tomorrow is official weigh-in.

I'll be weighing in at Weight Watchers, doing my measurements and get to work on some results. No rushing this time, slow and steady - so I'll keep it off just as slowly and steadily!

I love you all and hope you haven't forgotten about me... how have you been? Leave me comment and let me know!
