The downfall of Thanksgiving

Well I knew that with the Thanksgiving holiday I was more then likely not to loss weight and amazingly Im glad that I didnt gain more then what I did.  I surprisingly only gain just alittle under two pounds.  Im actually happy that with all the food and eating over the holiday weekend that I only gained a very small amount.  But this is usually the point where I see a gain and just give up.  But I will not give up this time, this time I am just going to work harder.

ThanksGiving Is Not For Dieting!

Im the only one that isnt laying down napping!  We had a 15 pound turkey for my grandfather, Tim, Dante and myself.  I got up a 8 and had it stuffed and in the roaster by 10.  We had mashed potatoes with gravy (made from the broth of the gizzards and turkey neck), veggie plate, green bean casserole, candied sweet potatoes, orange jello with shredded carrots in it, and dinner rolls.  We will be having pumpkin pie later.
Ya Thanksgiving is so not for dieting! The idea of totally covering the entire table with food and then eating all you can is so not appealing anymore.  I feel so sick now and I feel like I did something wrong.  My plate was loaded with food and now Im regreting it and Im gonna have to work extra hard to not gain any wieght this week, well till Monday when I have my next wieght-in.  Im now scared that I am gonna step on the scale Monday and have it say that I gained but then I guess that is what you have to deal with when you decide to start your diet during the holiday season.  Oh well.
He has to have the leg!

Im glad he is the one eating that and not me

Thanksgiving Is Coming!

Wow I'm just thinking that maybe I couldn't have chose a worst time of the year to start trying to loss weight!  I started cutting out sweets and stuff right before Halloween and now with Thanksgiving just a couple days away I'm starting to realize that in my family this is gonna be a hard fight!  We always have a few different pies and alot of food.  I haven't started getting anything ready except for the turkey out thawing.  I'm not wanting to start the pies tomorrow cause I know I will be tempted to eat a piece, its already bad enough that we have my grandfathers birthday cake sitting around!  I know that when it comes to eating Thanksgiving dinner I am going to have to eat small portions of everything and I am so think of just cutting the pie out all together.  Ugh the holiday season is the worst time to try to loss weight and get into shape but I guess its a great way to learn self-control!

Weekly Weigh In

Well I did my weigh in this morning and I was excited to step on the scale till I saw that I had only loss 1.2 pounds in the last week.  Well I guess I kinda knew that it wasnt going to be alot.  I will admit that I have slacked off but i have an excuse!  Its that time of the month.  I know that that really aint that good of an excuse but it seems that when I exercise the cramps get worst.  Ok so I have also decided to take a pic of my scales screen every time that I weigh myself since it records everything including the date so I will be adding those new pics to my weekly weigh in posts.  So heres a pic of last weeks weigh in and todays weigh in.

Okay so I am putting it out there for everyone to read and see! (Pics may offend some)

Well I am no longer embarrassed about my weight anymore.  I know that I am obese for my height.  I have finally able to stick to a regimen and I have been losing weight for the last six months.  I need to find more motivation to stick to it and putting it out there for people to read and see and comment on will keep me focused.  I hit my peek weight at 226 at the beginning of the year and about six months ago started eating better and so far I have dropped down to 205.  I have a goal of hitting 135 but I would be happy with 160 - 170 which is what I weighed in high school.  Im am doing this not only for my selfesteem but for my health.  I currently have high bloodpressure and was told by my doctor that it is cause of my weight and that if I lost weight and got healthier I wouldnt have to take meds for it anymore.  I also want to be there later in life for my son.  Its not fair to him when I dont take care of myself the way he needs me to.  If I dont take care of myself then I cant take care of him. Tim and I also want to have more kids in the future and a womens weight can affect their fertility and I dont want to have to worry about that when we do decide to try for another child.  Any way here are pics I had Tim take for me to use as motivation they may offend some all I am wear is my bra and panties.
