Last Time!

Update (09-10-12): Wow it seems like time flies! I am still in the 168-172ish range. So I haven't moved too much. Hoping to make some huge improvements. I started using doTerra oils and vitamins because they are helping my friend get motivation, feel better and be happier. So far I can actually feel an improvement :) so I'm excited. (If anyone wants more info, please let me know). I have started eating better and not binging after work so that was my number one goal...Yay! Hopefully I ...

(If anyone wants more info, please let me know). I have started eating better and not binging after work so that was my number one goal...Yay! Hopefully I can keep this up. Next goal is to get into a good exercise regimen that works, that I can fit into my lifestyle and that I can get in the habit of doing.

Update (03-07-12): I have gained even more weight since the last time. I owe it all to my knee surgery and making bad choices to help compensate being sad since I was not able to do any form of exercise for quite awhile. I am now in the 168-170 lb range which is the most I have weighed in the past 13 years! I will get back to a healthy weight, the healthy way this time. No more crash dieting, it doesn't work. You name it, I have tried it. Hoping to make lots of spark friends and help each other on our journey to feeling better and happier. I want to be one of those people that when someone looks at me, they wish they were as happy/energetic as what I would be. So here is to 2012, starting a little late but better late than never...bring it on!
And this year I will post a before pic!
Update (01-08-11) Well I have gained even more weight :( I am back at 150-153 lb range so all the weight I lost vanished. It was a diet though and I know many of you told me that it wouldn't last forever unless I could eat like that forever. So I think I need to incorporate more exercise. I got wii fit for christmas and granted it only burns about 150 calories in 30 minutes depending on what I do but its a start. I might have to have knee surgery soon too :( I won a 7 day free gym membership so I am going to go do that starting Wednesday and we will see what happens in 7 days. I have found that I have a hard time not eating after work until dinner...I love snacking for no reason. It's like my body takes over and makes me eat...granted it can't make you but its like I am hypnotized. Anyways...I need to start tracking big time too! I need all the help I can get. Come on...I want to lose 20-25 lbs in 2011, can I do it?

Update (01/12/12) I decided to change some things on my sparkpage in hopes that it will inspire and motivate me to begin (again) and succeed this time. Good luck all!

Update:(11/02/11) Forget Ideal Protein and forget other fad diets. I am ready to live and be happy, being able to eat whatever I want (taking into account portions and the sparkpeople tracker). Time to become happier and not just eat a leaf of lettuce...I want a tomato too and maybe an egg so forget fad diets cause in the long run, yes you will gain it all back...I am a proven fact of that. Or you will just live unhappy only eating grass. :)





Well back on Ideal Protein, this time to make sure I don't fall back since it takes so much effort to redo it and money. Soon I should be done with grad school then I will have way more time to enjoy life and exercise. I can't Wait!!!!!!

5-10 lbs to go. Once upon a time I weighed 185 lbs then I choked on pizza and lost 50 lbs...then I gained 20 lbs and now I am about back down to 135lbs but if I lose a little extra from toning...so be it! Maybe I could actually be one of those people that eat and eat and eat and still stay the same weight...I guess if you are active enough it could happen. I am currently going to grad school online to obtain my Master's in Statistics. Then after that I am taking a long deserved break from school since I have been going for 22 years....and I am only 26 years old. I will have a family then with my wonderful husband since he misses me so much while I sit at my desk day in and day out...it will be worth it :) Can't wait to get healthy too!

Update! Well I have gained a little weight. I am back at 146 this morning :( but it just helps to get me motivated and wanting to exercise so just like before I will lose the weight :)

Eating normally but portion control. We should be able to eat whatever we want and not cut out food groups! I have found when doing so, later on I gained all the weight + back.

Personal Information:
I work wayyyy too much and I am also in grad school. Busy life but I am going to try to fit in 20-30 mins of exercise everyday.

Other Information:
I love to read and play the wii and play call of duty on the ps3. I love to garden, sow, hike, camp, bike walk etc you name it I am pretty much down with anything except for skydiving and riding roller coasters (I rode 2 rollercoasters over the summer...not little either...woohoo)...maybe little ones :)

I would love to look like Lorelai Gilmore off the Gilmore Girls.

I see you are writing blogs. Missed seeing any input on the doTERRA Team from you. I feel we are struggling to keep the team going even though we do have some new members. Is there something we can do to pull together?

Are you still Sparking? I have missed you. You started the doTERRA team but you are never around and I am getting worried.

Hope all is well,

Jane

Thanks for the comment on my page. Good luck to you on your weight loss journey. If I can get results anyone can. Once I figured out what works for me I've had good success with only a little set backs. emoticon

Haven't seen you post on the doTERRA Team for awhile. Are you OK? Do you need some help? Hope you give the Team Goodies away before the end of the month as they are not kept until the next month as our personal goodies are. You are the only one that can give them as you are the only team leader.

Write me a personal e-mail if you want.

Jane
