Back to working out

Finally got my mojo back as since about xmas eve I was losing a little of my motivation and drive. Think it was all the sweets and great Christmas dinner and wanting to just hang out with family and not do much of anything. So...forced myself to get to the gym yesterday and did a long, fast walk and a little of the elliptical machine. I need to get back into doing my yoga and more weight training and I will this week. We are back to the usual schedule next Tuesday when school starts up again for my son and then I will have more free time to work out!

Christmas time was great to see my family including my mom and dad, 2 sisters and all their families. One of the nephews got the new Wii game systems that lets you do active games while holding the console. It was kinda fun to try the bowling, tennis and baseball games. You feel like you actually are burning a few calories. We came home a couple of days ago and now are thinking of going up to one of the mountains and go sledding in the next few days. We've been a little lazy though and haven't gotten too motivated to get up early and go. Today, we may go to Seattle to the big IMAX theater and watch 'night at the museum on the big screen' or will just go around here to the regular theater. Also, will go get my haircut tomorrow as I'm hating it lately!

Good news was that I did get some comments on my weight loss so that's always nice. But, sometimes, my mother tells everyone and that gets me a little embarrassed at times with people I don't know well or don't want to talk about the wt loss. No big plans for new year's eve but we will do the party poppers and toast at midnight with our son as he enjoys that! Said it before but Happy New Year's to all of you, I can feel it's going to be a good one!

Early happy new year to you all!

Hope everyone is having a happy holidays. I sure have and have been out of town at my mom and dad's. I did indulge on xmas and feel slightly guilty about it but I deserve to let go once in a while and not think about food and the scale for one day. May have done some damage but nothing that can't be reversed! I did get in one day of exercise and will go again tomorrow. I did not weigh in this week due to my wi day being on Mondays and so it hits both holidays! Lucky or unlucky not sure. But I will try to wi on next Tuesday I suppose. I should to stay accountable and not rebound back up!

I finally got my high speed internet working and it's marvelous! Like night and day, I can finally watch a email clip/video in real time. Waaaaahoooo!!! Now I'm trying to figure out how to copy all my favorite places such as all your blogs and all my email addresses but I don't seem to be getting anywhere. Oh well, I'll figure it all out or retype all my favorites into the new system. It's a drag but I'll survive!

Wishing you all a very happy new year!!!

Visit to Seattle

boats lk union
sp needle
gasworkssp needle afar
Here are some photos from our day out in Seattle. It was sunny on the way up there and soon as we got out of the car the wind was blowing and it starting raining after we were at this Gasworks park. This is the view of Seattle facing South from Lake Union not from the ocean. We went up to the triathalon store that was nearby and we were having fun at the park until chase fell in the grass and got mud all over him! We tried to wash what we could off in the bathroom but there are a lot of homeless people hanging around and sleeping in the park and I felt a little uneasy as they were pandhandling. I notice that Seattle does have a lot of homeless people, and it's sad. I don't give them money anymore since once or twice I did and I saw them go to the store and buy some booze. Once in a while I will give them some food though as I feel for their plight.

Anyways, we had a good day and then we went to the Pacific Science Center (by the space needle) which has lots or stuff for kids to do. They have a dinosaur exhibit and butterfly house and lots of science type experiments and toys. They have the Dead Sea scrolls exhibit but that was extra so we didn't go as I know he would be bored. I would love to go to that and to the 'Bodies' exhibit downtown after just taking that Anatomy course. Well, we'll see if we get there or not. Sometimes I love Seattle and sometimes I hate it. My hubby wants to live there someday, like in dowtown Seattle but at heart I'm still a small town girl or at least the suburbs! Hope everyone has a great weekend!

article about eliminating your trigger foods

I'm a posting fool lately now that I have some free time! I came across this article called 'beat the bad habits that are beating your diet' and was kinda surprised that this lady recommends eliminating trigger foods from your diet, and I think she means forever! Most people just say eat in moderation and don't eliminate your trouble foods cause then you just want them more. I kinda believe in that, I mean not totally eliminating trigger foods but I just eat them occassionally as things like pizza or pasta or sweets sometimes make me just want more of the food. What do you think of this article? Give me your thoughts. I like at the end how she says the tortoise not the hare will win the race in the end. Sometimes it is a slow and long journey to get healthy.

Ready for Christmas?

I am just about ready for Christmas, exept for some baking and maybe getting one more present. I bought a lot of my presents early as I hate the crowds at this time of the year. We did go to the mall though for a while on Monday as I was meeting my mom there to pick up my boy. We went to this restaurant called Macaroni Grill. It looks like it had a lot of high fat italian items on the menu so I had a 1/2 sandwich and a salad so that wasn't too bad. I always have trouble deciding how many points for meals when I eat out if I don't research it first. I have really been trying to eat most of my meals at home because then I really know how many calories I'm consuming. The one present I have left to get is for my husband. He wants triathlon type wear which is hard to find. He says the regular sports stores or REI don't have what he's looking for so I may have to go up to Seattle tomorrow to this tri store to get a gift certificate. It's so out the way though. But since my son is out of school for vacation maybe we'll make a day out of it. I'll take him to the Seattle aquarium or the Seattle Science Center. I'll try to take some pics if I see anything interesting or just pics of Seattle in general.

We just had the hdtv and digital cable hooked up. He said he couldn't hook up my high speed internet to the guest room cause it has no cable. Of course, it can be done but for another $100 or so and by someone else. That sucks! I really like having the computer room away from the tv area but may have to move it back down there as the only other cable outlet is in my room and I don't want the computer in there. They really went bare bones when they built this house, just 2 cable outlets and 2 phone outlets! The cable guy was complaining about his leg and sick and coughing everywhere. He didn't seem to be able to answer all the questions I asked him or didn't understand them. He hooked up the tv and then went to espn2 and I swear he was just vegging out watching tv!!! I was thinking, like "hello, you are working here". I actually had to prompt him by saying something to get him out of his football trance. Ahhhh, men....

I want to say THANK YOU to all my blogger friends for your kind comments. It's really cool to connect with other people that are fighting the fat war too. A special thank you to Marshmallow for you cute fireworks pictures she put up for me for onederland. I don't know why 200 to 199 is such a big deal but it is, it's a milestone for me.

Not much else happening so I will go and I hope everyone is having a good week!!!

It's all good!!!

Today is a good day for 2 reasons, 1 is that:

Onderland, you are finally mine!!!! That brings me to 198.2 pounds. I worked hard this week and ate on target and worked out a lot as I wanted to see a loss this week. So maybe last week's gain was water weight, not sure. But I am dang happy! I'm going to try my best to not go back into the 200lb category....I hope forever if I can!

The second reason that it is a good day is that I got an A in my Anatomy/physiology class!!! Woooohooo! I wasn't sure I could pull out an A but finals went real well so I'm pleased. I have to wait for spring to apply to my 2 yr school and am pretty sure I will get in for the fall start. Heck, I figured, if I retook my anatomy (2 quarters) which I had a B in and got A's then they have to accept me if I'm close to a 4.0! This school is taking a long time though (about 4-5 years) because it's taken me 2 yrs just to do the 8 prerequisites due to only taking one class or two at a time. It's seems like a long haul but I know I can do it. Hope everyone is having a good week!!!

Getting some perspective

A few days ago, I was at the gym as my usual routine and going around the indoor track. I was obsessing over the number over the scale and how the numbers aren't going my way and can't seem to break the 200 barrier. I came around the track and saw a lady hobbling back and forth and using a walker and had a peculiar gait. I instantly got a new perspective. God, I felt so self absorbed. Here she was, barely getting around the track while I worried about a silly thing such as a number on a scale. I stopped to say hi to her and we had a little conversation. She was so happy and smiling and wanted to know how I was. I felt like crying as I went around the rest of the track. Maybe having a emotional day, but I realized how lucky I am just to have my health and be able to move freely. I've noticed quite a few people at the Y that have some disabilities or just some physical challenges they must face every day. I stop now and say hi to them and offer to help if they look like they need it on a weight machine or one fellow needed help to get his cup off the back of his wheelchair and to get some water. Talk about getting some perspective!! Sometimes I think, I could do so much more and help people out and I do it in little ways for now. Sometimes, I think God or some other force gets me to stop and realize, life is about so much more than ourselves. So, think I need a gratitude list.

Things I'm thankful for:

my health

the love of my family

my friends

my freedom

the ability to go to school again

the beauty of washington, the sea, the mountains

honesty, with myself and from others

the kindness of strangers

the holiday season and being with family and remembering the reason for the season!

my blogger buddies!

Of course, there are many, many more but gotta get going!!! What are you thankful for?? We have to do xmas cards and then will go to the gym and my mom is babysitting today so we will have some time for some fun too if we get all are work done today. Hope everyone had a great weekend!!

Progress photos

These are my progress photos so far! The one where I'm in the white shirt is around my starting weight of 246 and the black sweater is me about 2 weeks ago at 201. It's kind of hard to see the outline of my body on the after/progress photo but at least I got a start here! I notice some change in my waist, chest, and face and actually starting to have collarbones again! Thanks Christie for the hint about flickr and how to get it to post here. For my next progress shot maybe in another 20 lbs, I will try to get better quality photos to see the difference. I really wish I had taken photos right when I started this journey in May so I could have cool comparison photos but I hated cameras so I found a photos from about 2 yrs ago. I was able to find some of me at Easter last April but they weren't close up shots so they didn't really work well. Oh well!

I didn't get my high speed internet or get to have my weekend without our child due to a big wind storm we had hit our area last night! We lost power for 20 hours and just got it back a few hours ago! It sucked but it seems the storm has moved on. We were a little bummed out but what can you do. My mom's was going to babysit but she lives on a island and they got hit hard! Hope everyone is having a good weekend!

exercise, exercise, exercise

Concentrating on exercising this week and of course, counting my points. I'm trying for exercise 5 or 6 times this week, starting with Monday. so far, today will be 4. I'm jogging again and still finding it very hard. My back has been bothering me and not sure why. Maybe it had to do with sitting on my butt by the computer last weekend. Yesterday I jogged 1 mile and walked 2 miles, then did a 30 minutes on the elliptical. I was a sweaty mess. I'm trying to increase my cardio and see what I can do but without hurting myself. I've been exercising since May consistently so I'm gonna push it to the next level and see if it jump starts my weight loss.

The scale was showing progress yesterday and jumped down 2 pounds but it seems that as soon as I eat out (did the ww entree at Applebee's) then it's back up 2 pounds. Oh well, hopefully if I watch it this weekend I'll see it go down by Monday. I really was thinking of moving my weigh in day to later in the week as it seems that my Wednesdays I recover from the weekend but I like my leader so I'll stick with Monday's. Too bad the holidays fall on that day so I'll have to figure what to do about that.

Here's a cute white christmas song at and if you need a wt loss succes story, here is one at I'm finally gonna get high speed internet tomorrow. I had been putting it off due to not wanting to pay more but the slow connection is driving me crazy and I caved in. We will also get digital tv and the hdtv box due to an early xmas gift of a bigger tv and the reception is a little fuzzy!!! I wish I had time to watch tv but the 5 year old wants to watch cartoons!! I would have like to see that biggest loser finale but I haven't been watching it from the beginning due to night school so I'll check out their web site. Well, I hope the faster internet connection will help me with my photo posting problem. I've tried everything from different web sites to clearning the cache from the computer but no luck!

We are looking forward to the weekend as Grandma will babysit our boy and we will have date night!!! Woooooohoooooo!!! Actually we are going to this new higher tech bowling alley and they cater more to adults on Friday nights and we will have some cocktails and we will meet up w/ 5 of my ladies groups and their husbands. I'm looking forward to it but my hubby isn't. He's not a drinker anymore and I think he doesn't like some of my friends. But oh well, I've gone out w/ his friends on occassion so it's payback time! And it will be fun, I tell him. Then maybe saturday we will do some alone time and go to a movie or something so looking forward to it! You know what I mean if you are parents! Have a great day. I'm gonna try to get some more xmas shopping done today!

Weight watchers changes

Still haven't read through all the ww book of all the changes that are happening but the biggest one seems to be how many points you get each day. There is a new formula (more personalized by person) that includes your age, your weight and your daily activity at your job, and your gender. It boils down to that men will quite a few more points and women can go up or down. I got one more point but will lose that when I get below 200. It seems every 10 lb category you get to you lose 1 point. Before, for instance, if I went to the 175-200 range I would have to go from 26 points at the 200-225 range and then down to 24 points at 199. Now I have 27 pts and will go down to 26 pts at 199 and then 25 pts for 189. I guess I like the system. It all works the same though as they are just playing with the points. You still get the extra 35 weekly points if want them anyhow. (Now that I've really confused you about points and you prob. don't care if you aren't on ww!) It's funny cause it seems every few years they change the points system but basically it's just another way of looking at it. It seems the core program had a few more changes like limiting what snacks you can have each day. The weight goal ranges seem to pretty much stay the same, they maybe added like 1 pound per height. It didn't seem like that big of a deal to me like I thought it would be. They say if it's working now, what your doing, why fix what isn't broken!

They also changed the starter kit. They used to have one that looks kinda like a small purse but now it will look like blue lunchbag. Our leader says it's because a man (for the 1st time) is running wt watchers and says more men are joining and that they will feel more comfortable with a lunch bag looking kit. We all thought it was kinda dumb and looked around the room of 50 people and there is 1 man! ha! I think more men would come but maybe they don't like talking about their feelings or they think there will be a room full of women, which there is. I think it's great when you see a couple there together. It seems they lose faster when they are both on the program.

I'm still trying to solve my photo problem and not getting them to post to my blogger. I will attempt it later when I have more time. Have a great day!

Switching to the beta blogger!

I was in the old blogger since last summer when I started this blog. It kept prompting me to go to the new beta blogger and I didn't. I decided to today (create a google account) as I'm having trouble posting to any blogs outside the US. It had been giving me the "not a secure site" when I posted to blogs in Australia, New Zealand and Netherlands. So thought maybe it was because I wasn't in the new beta blogger yet! So, if you have trouble making a comments to my blog I found it still works if you click on the 'anonymous' tab to make the comments. Not sure why there's issue w/ this!

Hope everyone is having a great week!

Good news and bad news

First the bad news, for some reason I was up 1.6 at weigh in yesterday. And today I seem down back to where I was last week. I'm not sure what's happening but I know I just can't wing the program. I had a extremely stressful week this past week with finals and it didn't help I had to sit my butt in front the computer for 3 days. So, not enough exercise, eating out (though I made good choices) and not really tracking my points made me not successful. I went and had a hard workout yesterday and got over my negative feelings and felt a lot better. Exercise is a mood booster for me.

The other bad news is that I can't get imageshack or my blogger to upload pictures yesterday and today. I have a slow connection speed but I can usually upload some pics. Any advice on another site or way I could try? I have the pics on my desktop but have to get them converted somehow. Or it could be an imageshack site problem but prob. more on my end. I want to post some xmas type stuff and maybe to get motivated again, some progress shots that I have ready.

The good news is that I got an A+ on my lab final and have to wait till this weekend to see what my physiology final will be. There was a buttload of essay questions and she will have to grade that by hand. It took me 3 nasty days to finish that and I wasn't a happy camper!! I'm kind of teetering between a B+ and a A- so we'll see what happens.

Try out this snowglobe xmas site, it's kind of funny. And this which is pretty xmas movie about silence and peace. Hope everyone is having a good week.

I'm being the queen of procrastination today! I need to finish my final online but finding everything else I would rather be doing! We went and got our Christmas tree. It was at this ranch/farm place which we thought it was the kind where you cut them down yourself. It ended up being already cut trees that were a good price and they had all kind or animals on their farm, like rabbits, cats, shetland ponies, emu's, goats, sheep, exotic birds, and dogs. Look like they also have a fish farm in the summer with a small lake. My son really enjoyed it there as we don't have any pets yet. We will some day and he says he wants a turtle or bunny but we'll see.

Being the queen of procrastination, I went to a Christmas play up in Seattle called 'White Christmas' which was good and then out to dinner at this place called 'Elephant & Castle'. It was an english pub/restaurant and everyone had fish and chips except for me! I was trying real hard to stay away from fried foods and the french fries so I had a chicken sandwich and salad. The guy wasn't listening when I place my order (which he read back to me) and brought the fries and not salad!! I hate that! He brought me the salad later but of course I had to have a few fries cause they were staring at me!! I don't want them on my plate or I'll eat some. Hhhhmmppphh. Anyway, real bad and slow service but it was busy night as seems all the restaurants are busy in Seattle before xmas as everyone is out shopping and going to parties so we couldn't get into some places we wanted to even though we called ahead. But the company was good and also got to see some 1st cousins at the play who live quite a few hours away who we hardly ever see these days!

It is nice see some people I haven't seen in quite a while and get comments on my weight loss. The problem is I have never been good at taking compliments so I have my standard answer, "well, I'm working on it". How is everyone holding up during the xmas and holiday party season? I'm back to my test now and fear that I will have no wt loss this week due to sitting on my butt in front of the computer the last few days! I did get in some exercise this week but not as much as I wanted to. I am looking forward to the ww meeting so I can hear what big changes they are announcing about the ww program. Have a great week!

Trying not to let stress get the better of me this week!

Looks like Santa has his own weight struggles too!!

I'm trying not to let stress get the better of me this week. I have two finals and not enough time to study for them it seems! Of course, it might help if I would get away from this computer as it seems to distract me.

I saw this article about using prayer to lose weight. Hey can't hurt maybe I'll try it! We ate out last night, mexican, as I've been craving it! I can tell when I go out to eat now that I don't feel as good after a higher fat meal as compared to the regular low cal dinner I usually have now! I can't seem to find enough time to exercise this week to to a field trip yesterday for my son and my mom visiting but I'll attempt to get in a walk today! Hope everyone is having a good week!

so close I could cry!!

Only lost -.6 this week and this brings me to 200.2. Darn, I thought I'd make it to 199.9 at least! I exercised 6 times last week and was in the points range though at the higher end. I really want to get to 199 and leave the 200's forever! I know it will be next week, it's gotta be. The wt loss has really slowed for November compared to all the other months for some reason. Ok, no whining! So what I will do to get at least a pound loss a week, if I can is: 1) exercise as higher intensity at least 4 out of 6 times this week (at at least 70% max heart rate), 2) Journal my points/food every day, no exceptions! 3) Throw out any crap in the house that I may eat!4) increase wt lifting to 3 times per week at least!

I'm hoping this will get me back to losing a lb a week w/ out these little losses!!! It seems the quicker I want the wt loss to happen and the harder I work, the slower the losses go. Back to turtle pace. Patience I know! I hope I can get all I want to get done this week but it's a busy week w/ field trips, 2 finals in school and my mom coming for 2 days and a play on the weekend and a party. Think I'll have to opt out of the party as I school has to take priority right now. Xmas shopping will have to wait till next week! How's everyone else handling their stress this week!!!

(P.S. A lady at weight watchers was outside in her car on the side of the ww building and put on the gas instead of the brake and crashed into the building and made a 3' by 3' hole in the brick!! She is ok though but it happened right before the meeting! Maybe she really didn't want to weigh in!)

The Good and the Bad

Thought I'd talk about the good and the bad that has happened to me recently. Saw an old friend/boyfriend around Thanksgiving and he saw I had running shoes on and said, 'are you running?' and I said 'yeah, just a little' and he says 'you've lost weight haven't you?!' and I say 'yeah, I am working on it'! So that made my day! He is big into triathalons and doing a marathon this weekend and did the 1/2 marathon that my hubby did. They are friends and once in a while will do a tri together. He knows him through when they worked for my dad fishing in Alaska. It's not weird though and I like his wife too.

The bad was that I was going through photos from before the weight loss to some different months since and was thinking, 'man, you are still really fat!' And it just bummed me out I took another one last night and I do see quite a bit of improvement but I still have a ways to go. I just needed to get a reality check and know this is going to take a quite a while to get to goal. But do you know what I mean, you think, 'hey, I'm doing good and feeling good and looking better' and then you see a photo and it shows how far you still have to go! I will post the photos in a few weeks when I get down to -50. My before picture is not on digital so I'm still figuring out how to get my scanner to work so I can post the comparison shot. I wish I had done something like 'half my size/pastaqueen'. She has some great before and after's. She has the same pose and you can rotate her photos in 360 view. I'm afraid I'm just not that teckie and will have to do just regular shots. She also has the one where you can overlap your previous photo with a new one. Cool. Since I didn't start really with a posed before photo, I just found a candid photo my mom took. I sure tried to stay out of photos when I was heavier. The camera was like the plaque! But once in a while a photo got through. I should try to also scan this photo of when we went to Hawaii a few years ago. We all (my family and sister's family and parents) went to a luau and they take your group photo and when I saw it I was mortified by how I looked and knew I had to do something! I didn't recognize who that fat woman was in the picture. That couldn't be me?? Evil twin, ha! Of course, that turned in to a few years of losing 20 and then gaining 20 and the yo yo dieting again! A good thing it is different this time. There is no quitting this time and no skipping wt watchers meeting cause of a possible gain. That would be my downfall, it was in the past. I had a terrible pattern of dieting in spring and fall and then falling off the wagon during the holidays until spring again. It's no way to live and I think they say that yo yoing in weight just maked you fatter, I mean fat tissue vs. lean tissue and screws up your metabolism.

We had a good time last night going to my old high school state playoffs. The Oak Harbor Wildcats won the state championships in the AAAA. Awesome!!! And it was like old home week, as we were walking around looking for a my mom and dad and to find a seat, I saw like 6 or 7 classmates from the past. What a blast from the past!! Too bad there wasn't more time to visit but it was so crowded, I think the whole town came to the game plus alumni!!

Today, my hubby is putting up the xmas lights outside and maybe we will go find a tree. He wants to go cut one down somewhere and prob. will go to an xmas tree farm. And, I am attempting to study as have a big lab test on the brain, nerves, ear and eye on Wednesday that I'm not ready for yet. I keep on finding better things to do! Hope everyone is having a good week and I'm hoping for some kind of loss tomorrow at ww!!
