Third Times The Charm, right?

Hi. I'm Lori. I'm from Wisconsin. I have six children, and one grandchild. :)

I didn't always have weight issues. As a teenager, I was thin and in shape. I was very active. It wasn't until I had my twins in 1995, that I started to struggle with addictions to high sugars, and Pepsi. But I lost the weight, and I became thin. But when I had my last child almost 10 years ago, my weight issues started again. :(

Hi. I'm Lori. I'm from Wisconsin. I have six children, and one grandchild. :)

I didn't always have weight issues. As a teenager, I was thin and in shape. I was very active. It wasn't until I had my twins in 1995, that I started to struggle with addictions to high sugars, and Pepsi. But I lost the weight, and I became thin. But when I had my last child almost 10 years ago, my weight issues started again. :(

I have to take MY life back into my own hands, and get myself healthy again. I tried doing it for me, and have failed multiple times. This time it's for my children and grandson.

The last couple of times that I tried this new healthy lifestyle, I lasted 3 weeks.

10/27/13: Gained 2 lbs back. :( But today marks EIGHT MONTHS since I've had a soda!

6/19/13: Lost 3 more pounds. Another week and it'll be 3 months since I've had a soda.

5/30/13: Lost another pound. It's been 3 months since I've had a soda on the 27th. Woo hoo!!

5/15/13: Lost 2 more lbs. Very happy with myself. Makes for a total of 12 lbs.

5/5/13: Tried drinking carbonated water, and I almost threw up. Makes me realize that I'll never be able to drink soda again. What a great feeling to be rid of something that was controlling me. I'm proud of me! :)

4/19/13: Another pound gone. I'm at a 10# loss. My reward is to color my hair. Hmm... What color should I go with?

4/11/13: Lost another pound. Making it 9 #'s lost now. :) It's been almost seven weeks since I stopped drinking soda. Yay!

4/8/13: My depression is getting the best of me. No weight lost since 4/1. I'm thinking it has a lot to do with my depression/anxiety, and my little "friend". Will keep plugging along recording everything I eat.

4/4/13: Dug the measuring tape out finally. Lost an inch in my hips and waist. And then half an inch on my thighs.

4/1/13 : Lost another lb! :) This feels so good!

3/27/13: It's been one month since I've had a soda. Woo hoo!
I've also lost another 2 lbs. Making it 7 lbs lost now with Sparkpeople.

3/21/13: I've lost 5 lbs with Sparkpeople.

2/27/13: My first day with NO soda

Thanks for the comment on my blog. I can imagine why your daughter would want to be back in South Carolina. It is beautiful here! We lived on the coast in Washington State for several years, and then in Boston, but now are land- locked in the mid-West. Miss the mountains and the ocean...but lakes are pretty, too. Definitely plan to soak up as much sunshine along the beach as I can this week! emoticon
