Hello good people of Spark! I am determined to lose weight but am tired of the number on the scale setting my outlook on life. So, I'm not going to weight myself again until Aug 28, 2014 (**Edit- I've decided to join the Spring 5% Challenge and will have to weight myself but will only do it one time a week!). I know what I weight now, I know what I need to do to get back into my cute clothes I miss wearing and I know what it takes to get there.

No more pigging out! No more ...

No more pigging out! No more drinking too much! No more telling myself that being chubby is OK. No more going out to eat just to make hubby happy. No more insouciance (I love this word, look it up!). NO MORE EXCUSES!

Super Teresa rides again....!!!!!!

SparkPoints: 27,889

Fitness Minutes: 56,165

My Goals:
My goal is to be able to wear my cute clothes by the end of August. They are patiently waiting for me in the closet.

My Program:
Eat between 1250-1300 cal a day.
Exercise enough to burn 600 calories a day.
Eat only ONE meal out a week and then don't pig out at it.

Here's some math, for my own purposes:
1300 cals eaten against 600 burned through exercise and assuming 1500 other cals burned in a day means an 800 deficit every day. Throw in a meal out once a week at 1500 calories and you've got a 4300 calorie deficit each week. I've got 28 weeks = 34.4 pounds lost.
OR If I eat 1200 cals a day and everything else is the same, 28 weeks = 38.4 pounds lost.
I know the math doesn't really work but this gives me something to hope for, aka, motivation!

Girl they would have to tie me to keep me still to do that test emoticon i am better today and just back from training. I do believe that i have been good enough for coffee now lol. I got my calories way up yesterday and i am track today with them although tired just not exhausted. I attached my emotions to fitness to break emotional eating and it worked because now i could care less about food other than the fact is if i dont get it right i will stay at this weight as i dont think my body can handle much more. and well that option is not an option. hope you are doing well emoticon

You are right. My sister is dramatic and always has been. Going to horse shows with her was a nightmare because of all the drama. I had to be the one up with her until 2 in the morning listening to it. She hasn't spoken to me since my mother died. I contacted her when we had to put the mare down a few weeks ago. She responded with look out for the other mare and I haven't heard from her since.

My other sister and brother I have never been close to. They are really nasty people and I don't even want to know them.

Thanks for "Red Hot Mamma" heels! Sadly, we mostly wear "Hot" Sorrels up in the mtns (coordinated with our very best flannel shirts!) It's the thought that counts though!

I'll be grateful to graduate into sandals....right now, they are torture. The ocean is about 57 degrees, but the pool outside the condo would be warm. However, there's the swimsuit dilemma..... emoticon

I only erased the blogs for stuff like "30 day blah blah blah" or my mundane daily events, etc. but I kept the ones that had to do with successful Sparking. There were just TOO many and it was hard to find the ones I wanted to find. I've been back on Spark since the beginning of the year (deja vu 2011) and it puts me in a better mood (and definitely helps me eat cleaner). I knew you'd eventually check your page!! That genealogy project you've got going is amazing. You should blog about it.

Hey, T! I miss you and hope you're holding down the Fort! My DH is a huge Broncos fan & his spirits are lower than a snake's arches after the big loss at SB today. I imagine it was a big day on your street...until the Seahawks whomped us.

Wonder how your SP lifestyle is going and hope you'll check in & give us an update. Tons of snow in the Grand County mtns...if you're lookin' for skiing. We're in CA because we developed a serious allergy to plowing & shoveling 24/7! (tee hee)

Miss ya! emoticon
