I have officially started my weight loss again.  Two weeks ago I cut out regular soda.  I have been having two Diet Dr. Peppers a day.  One with lunch and one with my dinner.  The rest of the day I have a full water bottle at my side.  I plan on phasing out those two daily Diet Dr. Peppers too but I have to wean myself off of them cause if not I will get a killer headache.  I also cut out most sweets and fast food.  I lost 3 pounds that first week and 3 pounds the second week.  So down 6 pounds so far.  My goal for this month was 10 since I got started late. I'm hoping to lose 3 or 4 pounds this week to make my goal for the month.  If not no big deal.

My goal for February is a big one.  20 pounds and it's a short month at that.  If I don't make it I wont be to upset, I realize 20 pounds is a lot to lose in a month. Since I am starting back I expect the weight to come off quicker in the beginning.  We will see. 

I got my tread mill today!!  It's waiting for me at home.  This means it is time to get the ball rolling on my exercise.  I will have no excuse not to workout.

I'm working on another blog.  I haven't decided if it will a crafting blog, or a blog in general. I consider myself to be crafty and love to make things.  I have noticed when I craft I don't snack. I'm not thinking about food because my mind and hands are busy creating.  So I have a whole list of items I want to accomplish this year.  I will be sure to let my followers here know when my blog  gets going.

I had a couple of comments on my last blog.  Thank you Carbie and Robin for your support.  Hopefully most of my followers are still out there.  I intend on looking at blogs again. To see how everyone is doing.

Knock Knock is anyone still out there?

Well here I am. Back.  As many of you suspect I have not done well on the weight loss front since I have been gone.  It looks like I haven't been here since May.  Quite a while.  Life has been busy.  In June my family went to Disney World. We had a wonderful time but I ate what I wanted on that trip and never looked back.  I have gained every pound I lost back.  Thankfully I haven't gained anymore than that.  I have no excuses. I got lazy with my exercise, I ate horribly.  And made excuse after excuse for myself.  So here I am back at point one...again.  I have been back at point one so many times in my life, it's exhausting.

I'm sitting here making my menu for the upcoming week.  I have looked up new light recipes, I bought a treadmill two days ago and drinking nothing but water. Really hoping this time I can do this.  I'm finally getting back into the mindset I can do this, I need to do this.

Since putting this weight back on I lost I can definably feel the difference in my body.  I'm bummed.  Everyday I wake up and my mind goes right to weight loss, I need to lose weight.  It's constantly on my mind.  I have to either get it off or learn to love my body like it is.  Well I don't love my body like it is, I hate my body like it is.  I miss hearing people comment on how much weight I had lost, wonder what they think now?  I actually miss working out, but I can't get the energy to get off my ass and do it. 

The other day I was ready to do the damn thing.  I ate great all day, I drank plenty of water, I said no to home made dinner.  I didn't snack during dinner ( have an issue with that) Had dinner, cleaned up got the kids in bed. ... Put on the Biggest Loser with all intentions of riding my bike the whole show...the effing pedal broke off my bike.  I just sit there for a minute, my husband knew I was getting ready to go into meltdown mode telling me it was okay we can fix it.  I went to the bathroom eyes filled with tears.  I wasn't sure what to do anymore.  So I am making plans today to start new once again.

Okay I'm done rambling for now.  I look forward to blogging again.  I hope I  have followers who are still around.
