  • Long Time

    4/29/2016 1:07:21 PM, by ASH22WEE

    Hello, It's been a while since I wrote on my blog. I'm not sure if anyone is reading it but it help me feel better. I had my first weigh in and I have to say, I have mixed emotions about it. I wanted to see the number decrease but it did not. I maintained my weight. Also, I lost 3 inches in my... Read more

  • Who do you trust?

    "Do you keep your weight loss goals a secret from certain people in your life? Do you find that telling others helps or hurts your progress?" This question was posed in an article here on SP that I read today and really got me thinking. In previous weight loss ventures I have shared with anyon... Read more

  • Reflections on my 1 month SP Anniversary!

    4/25/2016 12:38:01 AM, by MSDIXIE9

    Yeehaw y'all! I am down 17.4 lbs and 26 inches in one month! 9 104 I was so excited when I did my weigh in & measurements today. I am so happy! 224 For as many times as I flubbed up in this month, that is nothing short of a miracle! 28 Now my prior mindset would have had me saying, "But ... Read more

  • That's what I'm talkin' about!

    4/22/2016 2:13:08 AM, by MSDIXIE9

    Good day. Just all around good day. I sweat my rear end off today! 198 Laughed a lot with my mom. The oatmeal/breakfast was a good idea, I wasn't famished half the day. I met most of my nutrition goals, was very active (even though technically most of it wasn't "exercise"). Got laundry done, ... Read more

  • Just keep swimming, swimming, swimming....

    I spent quite a bit of time looking at binging (yes, that is the correct spelling, not bingeing) to figure out wth is wrong with me, 246 and decided to make a few changes today and see how that pans out. I am p.o.ed but I'm not giving up. First, I got rid of my weakness...chocolate. Like I co... Read more

  • Sucker.

    4/18/2016 7:30:19 PM, by MSDIXIE9

    I was in a car accident a few weeks ago. Wasn't hurt, neither was the other guy...slight damage to his truck but the entire front end of my car was demolished. I tell you that to say this. My old car wasn't worth fixing, so my dad told me to get on craigslist to look at used cars. Well, I made a lis... Read more

  • Time and road blocks

    4/17/2016 4:43:30 AM, by MSDIXIE9

    They always say, "You didn't put it on overnight, you won't lose it overnight." And overnight is true. But how long is longer than it should? I specifically recall gaining ten plus pounds in a week. 15 Why can't I lose 10 pounds in a week? ijs... 9 I guess when it is at the forefront of our m... Read more

  • Just breathe...

    4/14/2016 2:14:22 AM, by MSDIXIE9

    Well I woke up in better spirits after the mess I made of the day before and thought about what everyone said. Especially where Serene said, "Don't be mean to yourself." I thought about what really happened that got me there to that point. I didn't realize it until I looked back but my job gave me ... Read more

  • SO disappointed in myself! :(

    4/13/2016 3:05:28 AM, by MSDIXIE9

    234 WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME?! I have derailed. I am not hungry but I feel like I could chew my arm off. I am so frustrated and disgusted and upset. I had a good fitness day but I blew it completely in eating. Then I told myself, "Well you screwed that up, might as well..." and I ate 2 candy bars.... Read more

  • Aches and Pains

    4/11/2016 1:23:39 PM, by ASH22WEE

    I would just like to say that last night was the first time I went to sleep without pain in my hips/legs and this morning was the first time I woke up without the pain. I am stoked. It has to be the increased movement. About three months ago, I pinched a nerve in my back (at least that's what I... Read more

  • Body Composition

    4/11/2016 12:38:54 PM, by ASH22WEE

    I had a body composition done about a week ago. When I got on the scale, it shocked the hell out of me because I didn't realize I weighed as much as I did. To be fair, the scale at home was 30 pounds off (not in the right direction :(). Then the body fat percentage actually shocked me too. I just ha... Read more

  • Awesomeness!

    4/8/2016 11:03:48 PM, by MSDIXIE9

    This is all around the best day I've had on my program yet, for lots of reasons. 521 I know, we ALL know, that the number on the scale 11 shouldn't dictate how we're doing. But alas, although I have stayed on track, the last 2 days the scale crept up. And I was one UNhappy woman! Had some ro... Read more

  • Week one success!

    4/3/2016 11:30:07 PM, by MSDIXIE9

    Wow, what a week! I am kind of blown away by it all. I learned so much!!! I learned about food, making healthy choices, exercise, time management, and most importantly about myself. I'm learning how to listen to my body most of all. I have ignored it for so long that I forgot what it soun... Read more
