General Discussion / Hi Guys! Just An Update!
« on: July 31, 2013, 12:31:06 PM »
Hi guys! What's up? Well, just wanted to fill y'all in! Stayin the course! Anddd I have gone from a size 16 down to a size 10! OMG! Started off at a size 22! Up north! It's funny cause the mother n law seems shocked everytime I tell her! Like she can't figure out how I'm loosing the weight?! Really? I've told her a thousand times! And Umpa, you were so right!! (Not that I didn't believe you ;D)But you just cannot imagine how much bread she throws away everytime, because it goes bad, because nobody, in our family eats it!!
But, why can't I physically see how much I'm loosing? I mean obviously I am, cause the pants sizes are dropping and my sister n law says she can tell I'm loosing it, but I just can't physically see! I so thought I would never be in a size 10 again! It's funny cause she was telling her mother over the phone that I was in a size 10 pants, & like I said they can't believe it, and the mil was like, I don't know mama, but she's wearing them now! LoL...Thanks guys!! ;D ;D

General Discussion / The Scale is Alive!
« on: July 07, 2013, 11:17:12 AM »
Hey guys! I guess eating the right way really does pay off! I've been stagnite at 200 lbs. (of my own free will)& I really haven't been checking the scale, just because I knew what I was going to see! Same 'ole, same 'ole! So last week, I weighed in at 200lbs. and this week I've already started dropping! First 198, now 197! Slowly but surely I guess! So you know, I'm "keepin The Faith!"

Hi guys! I don't know about y'all, but there is something to saying "NO" to the pushers! ;D Omg! Such a wonderful feeling! As you guys know, we are currently staying with the mother n law, and it has been such an uphill battle when it comes to food!(among other battles, but I shall not bother you with that!:-) I think it had to do with getting a pretty big, mini fridge in our room, to finally get the will power to say no to the mil! She told me today that she had some stuff made, and I just said oh, okay, and walked right out, and opened the fridge in our room, and got out baby carrots, and celery sticks that I made up yesterday. It's weird, because I feel good after telling her no to the foods I used to love eating. I am trying really hard this time, and I promise I am not going to break. I don't know where the will power came from! Just hit me all of a sudden. I'm tired of being a people pleaser. I want to please myself, my kids and my husband by living a long life. Not by killing myself slowly by what someone else cooks! ;D

General Discussion / couch potato syndrom. no more!
« on: June 12, 2013, 01:36:26 PM »
Hi guys! Well since school let out this past Friday, and after a day of total vegetation    :D I then realized I was slowly becoming a couch potato for yet another summer! And I wasn't happy about it at all!
After Doug gave me the novel idea, just because she cooks it doesn't mean I have to eat it! I have been doing good as far as no starches! (It seems that's all she cooks!)I then realized how very bored I was. So I have started my own small workout routine at home. And I cannot tell you how much better I feel actually doing something, as opposed to sitting on my butt all the time. Good thing is, I can do it whenever I get bored. I take it slow and in small reps. Hope everyone is doing good!

sI am so sorry for the incosistancy in my posts!  :-[ But between dr.s appts. and work! It being only "5" more weeks till schools out!!(I drive a school bus)Things are kinda crazy at work! Half the time I don't know if I'm coming or going!
Anyway, some good news! AND Just by following what Doug said! "Just because she makes it, doesn't mean you have to eat it!" At first, it was totally nerve wracking! Basicly haveing to fight her on a daily basis, then with the food issue too! But, once I got over that hump! It was so funny, one night, she made baked chicken AND mac and cheese! Do you know how hard that was for me to say no?! Especially with her standing there watching us make our plates! She was like Stephanie, you don't want any? And I said, no mam, I'm good! I could tell it ticked her off, but I had stood up to her! And have been doing it ever since!
I am back down to my size 16's again! And Lord it feels good! ;D  Also, I was a junkie when it came to sodas! My favorite one was Mntn. Dew!!! Miss that stuff! But, husband and I got the flavored water, which is just as good to me! I just needed flavor in the water, know what I mean? I've even given up sweet tea totally! I figured I was giving up sodas, might as well, do away with the tea too!
ANDDDD....Doug, you'll love this one, it's actually been, only one whole day since no nicitine! I'm surviving so far, but I'm just to the point of filling my body with all the junk that's out there. And yes, she still gets the donuts, and no, I don't eat them, at all. And to tell you the truth, I don't even miss them.
Also, can giving up all that sugar make you feel sick?

General Discussion / Think I can "actually" do it this tme!

Happy New Year!!! A new year means, new choices, new goals, and a new life! So far I have been on the bike for three days, and have realized maybe I should start off at 30min?! LoL...My legs were screaming today. Guess it finally caught up to me! I've already done 30min. today, and hopefully by my summer break, I will be at an hour! It's funny how the mind is able, but the body says, "!" LoL...
And on the food! It has been about four days, no sweets, no chips, etc...and I hav survived! LoL...And I can't tell you how much better I feel! Not being bogged down by feeling blah...after eating all the mac and cheese, mashed potatos, etc...And truthfully, I don't miss them, like I thought I would. I am careful about what I eat! I don't let myself get starved to the point of wanting to eat "everything." So, it is possible to live with someone who cooks, loaded with carbs, and still loose weight! It took a while to get my butt in gear, but I'm back on track! As in the breakfast room, sits ciniman rolls, bread, cakes, cresants! I have not touched one of them! Because I want to be an example in this family and oh, to live long and prosper! LoL...

OMG! Y'all! Last night, I waited an hour after dinner, and I did the stationary bike for an hour! I haven't done any real excersizeing since we've been back! Mainly cause of work, life, etc...I know, blame, blame, blame! But I figured since we were walking 4 miles up north everyday! What the heck? Right? Wrong! It felt great to be on it actually doing something that will benefit me later I know, but I think I actually broke out in sweat! LoL...I got off the bike, my nephew was talking to me the last 20min. of it, and he was like, uh...your pants are wet! I felt on my bottom, & was like, no dude that's sweat! LoL...Haven't sweated that much in forever! Felt good, but I'm feelin the burn now! I guess ya gotta start somewhere!

General Discussion / Still hungry...
« on: December 29, 2012, 06:25:35 PM »
For dinner, I had two pieces of chicken, rotisery? A breast and a leg, and I was FULL. Now, I am starving! Hasn't even been 20 minutes yet! I guess I am so used to Eating, my mind hasn't caught up yet? I am trying so hard not to go back in there and eat everything in the fridge! LoL...But I guess I have to retrain my way of thinking?

General Discussion / Just letting you guys know!
« on: December 29, 2012, 02:56:10 PM »
I am starting a blog. It will make me feel more accountable for what I eat! I know I am an adult and can make my own choices. But apparantly I haven't been makeing the right ones. It's a blog of mostly what I eat, and the struggles I go through, liveing with the mil and all "her" cooking! Like someone said, just cause she cooks it, doesn't mean I have to eat it! So check it out, if you'd like.

General Discussion / reading helps!
« on: December 29, 2012, 12:18:19 PM »
One thing that I have picked back up again, is reading. I have been on winter break since December 15th! And one thing I have learned, if I read(with my iPod in), even though my mind is constantly telling me all the "bad stuff" is just a few feet away, with iPod and lol...harry potter:-) once I get into a book, I don't want to put it down! So looks like I'll be doing alot of reading!

General Discussion / so the detox begins
« on: December 29, 2012, 11:38:19 AM »
Well guys, day 2 and I am already feeling the blah of the sugary detox! I knew it would be rough this go around, but sheesh! I guess sugar really is a drug :-)

General Discussion / Okay guys, I need help!
« on: December 25, 2012, 08:59:36 PM »
I am what they call an "oldie but goodie!" I know the rules, I have lived by the rules, and have lost the weight! And the way of life really does work!! Heck, I am proof of that! I went from a 22 to size 16. But I digressed big time! I have been blessed with the ability to "hide the weight" so to speak, but I know it's there! I am uncomfortable in my own skin. I think the first thing that triggered it was my moms death this July, and this being the first Christmas I wasn't able to go to her house for Christmas, like we had all these years. It was a hard reality, but I "barely" made it through. I think I literally ate my way through my emotions. I am disgusted, and embarrased with myself.
I have made up my mind though. (and yes, I know I've said it a million times on here!)I have made up my mind(again!), I do not want to be 800lbs. and miserable. Not that I'm anywhere near that! But I'm to the point to where I just want to sit down and cry! My mother n law still cooks loads of carbs, and doesn't show signs of stopping! I told my husband, I don't care, I've got to do something, or I will end up as big as the house! I have to get out and excersize and do something! i think most of it has been a little bit of depression. I have made it through my first Christmas without my mom and surived. So if I can do that, I can loose the weight!
I am sorry for being longwinded! And I am sorry "Doug" for being so darn wishy washy! I just need a little "shove" in the right direction!!

General Discussion / Takeing Back My Life!!
« on: September 03, 2012, 02:00:07 PM »
Hi guys! Long time no see! As many of you know, my mom passed away towards the end of July of this year. And although I really haven't eaten THAT much of it, I have been eating some sweets. I "know" I shouldn't, but I have. "Comfort" food, I guess? I have been depressed for a while, still am, but, we live with my mother n law for right now, we are currently looking for houses, but she buys sweets, knowing that we are trying to loose weight. But, we have all talked about it(& she has even had the lap ban done, and still buys sweets!)I am so tired of the way I look and feel all the time. I have come to the realization, that if nothing else, I can controll what I eat! Just because it is stareing me in the face, I do not  have to eat it! She is the cook in the house right now, and we all hate it, because she cooks, carb heavy! But, we have also talked about it, we are just going to eat the meat and vegetables, and nothing else! We were talking one night, and agreed, that if we keep eating the way we are, we're going to balloon up the way we were! I have decided to start walking in the evenings, when it is cooler.(if that's possible in Florida!)And just takeing account of what I eat! I am in controll of how I look and feel!

General Discussion / Need some prayers!
« on: July 17, 2012, 11:40:42 AM »
Hi guys! I just found out this past Saturday, that my mom is in a nursing home, and that she has less than six months to live. She has nemonia along with Louis body disease, which is dementia, alzheimers together, and she has parkins disease in her legs. I go visit her twice a day, and I'm not going to lie, it hurts. When I get in my car to come home, I cry home. We were up north for three years, and the last memory I have of her, she was still the same! The thing with this disease, it makes you look older. She is 64, but it makes her look 84. She isn't doing good at all, frankly neither am I. I don't eat much, and I am always tired and wore out, emotionally. My dad died when I was two, and don't have the first memory of him. And seeing a parent like this for the first time, is a real shock! Don't know if I can handle it. And would appreciate some prayers!
Love you guys!

Hi guys! Summer has been in full swing and so have we! I like it better in the bus, at least I'm going in only ONE direction! haha...This is going to be long, so bare with me! Well, since we have moved back down to Florida, my 16yr. olds high school, wanted us to go to a clinic, downtown! We have a primary doctor that we go to, that is way better! I will never go to the one downtown again!!!
My 16yr. old got diagnosed with diabeties while we were in Missouri, in 2010, I believe. They did the required bloodwork etc...of course to "come up with that decision!" Well, the dr. today, tells me(are ya ready?!)that he wants my 16yr. old to totally quit takeing his diabeties medicine for...FOUR whole months!! He takes Metformin, Simvistatin? And cholestrol medicine. Honestly, I'm no doctor, but do you know what could happen to that boys blood sugar in four months??!! Even with "Direct" supervision from us, at home?!! Geese, when my husband came home, I told him everything the doctor told me! He wants him to come back in four months, to "reassest" everything! And to basicly start him over from scratch! Do you know what that can do to his system? Totally mess him up big time! I thought our primary doctor sent him over there, but my husband said, no, it was his "school" doing all of this!! The doctor, with almost a grin told me, that the dosage he was on for each medication, was bare minimum, that he was going to probably be on a thousand milligrams!! Seriously!?
I know I've harped on this before, but how can the school system be so darn ignorant??! And doctors, for that matter! Didn't they have to go through years of training to be a doctor?! So my husband informed us, that he would continue takeing his medication, and the next time one of us has an appointment over there, I am going to tell the doctor everything the doctor downtown told me!
Would love y'alls input!
