How do you all do it?

I did so well keeping up on my blog when I was at home with the kids (not sure how, only that nap times were always kept)! and is hit or miss. I also don't seem to have time to come up w/great and motivational topics!
Oh well, at least I know you are all out there and if I need a kick in the booty, you will be there for me.
Fortunately, I have done well. Thank goodness! Work is so stressful and in the past it would have easily meant a yummy treat, and then another and then one more. Now all I think about is how happy I will be to have another loss and how many weeks in a row I can go w/losing. I am 3 lbs from my first mini goal and I have 4 weeks to get there. I am so happy about that and deteremined to do it! Once there the goals will reset but I can take my time deciding (at least 3 lbs worth of time)!!! lol!
So glad to see you all over here and commenting on my blog. When I get a chance I will add some more of you to my blogroll!

All good things come with change...

I went to google search and didn't find much of my "cached" items...but I did transfer what did come up. Soooooooooooooooo, I guess this is almost a new beginning! Too bad I really liked the old home I had.
Oh well, all things good come with change and that is what my attitude is for my weight loss as well.

All things good come with change...that is my healthy lifestyle, my families health, my new found energy, my (soon to be) thin self...and the list goes on!

Tell me, what good things are coming in your life from change?

Today is a new day!

Well, I spent some time trying to figure this blog site out today. I think it should be pretty easy but I have to have some time on it to know for sure. I did get some of the links added I had on the old site...good thing cause I missed you guys!!!!!

So, today was a good day. I was STARVING yesterday (must have been b/c it was WI day) but I made it thru the day w/points left over...not sure how that happened. I just finished my last 2 points of the day and I am feeling pretty good. I drank my h2o today (100 oz) and am ready for my day tomorrow. I am going to the beach w/some of the kids from work so I will be packing my own lunch! Those work lunches are icky!!!! Maybe I can talk one of the kids in going for a walk.

Other news...I plan on quiting my job soon. I can't really afford it, but it is making me crazy. I will be looking so if any of you know of any openings, things to work from home would be great, let me know, otherwise just wish me luck! :-)

Wow, I am boring. Sorry!

Well, here I am

Thanks to Strawgirl & Swizzlepop for directing me this way. I don't have much time right now to get this all set up, but plan on working on transfering data this weekend and whenever I can...
I was so bummed out to see the old site (Roni's) had crashed.

Anyway, I weighed in today and I am down 1.1 for a 13 week total of 23.3 lbs (that is 13 straight weeks of a loss)!


I will try and catch up w/you all later.

Going to a conference!

Posted by july on June 22nd, 2007
I am going to a conference in Anaheim this weekend. I hate those things. I have to pay $15 for continental breakfast, which I won’t even touch and then figure out how to get all my veggies in for the day. I am not sure if I will have access to my computer so I will just have to write my points down (guessing for some) and then put them in when I get back.
The good news is I am excited about the conference. My husband is in the Air national Guard and I am a family readiness volunteer. We help to make sure the families and friends are kept in the loop and can find information if a member is deployed. It is a neat thing to do and the conference is all about how to make it better.
Well, must get back to work, but wanted to share my woos and excitement! See you all soon!

Checking in!

Great day! I have been on track now for 3 days…not that I was ever off track, just struggling to deal with the hunger issues. They seem to be under control, for now. I came home toight and made Pizza Pasta Casserole posted on “my life…in a blog”! It was awesome. Toddler and dh approved.
I am hanging in and hope you all are doing well too. Must go, but wanted to post about that yummy caserole!

Had to skip WI...

My dh was gone and I just couldn’t get things coordinated enough w/both the kids by myself. Sooooooooooooo, wish me luck. I am doing it tomorrow and really want to do well but I am a little nervous. I was so hungry last week who knows how it will go. I am just hoping to not gain! Seriously, keep your fingers crossed for me. Thanks.

I think I figured it out!

So, I had to examine why I was so hungry yesterday and going back over the past few weeks (4 weeks to be exact) it has been like that every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday and by Thursday I am fine. Well, I have been back to work for 4 weeks and I am still a nursing mom so on the weekends my daughter just eat whenever and a lot during that 10-3 time frame. Soooooooooooooooooooooooooooo, I think that my body has gotten used to producing a lot during that time and those first few days I am re-adjusting to only pumping twice while I am at work after feeding her on demand over the weekend. By Thursday I am used to it and just fine. That is why I think I am so hungry!
Sorry if that was TMI for some of you.
Anyway, thanks for all your suggestions yesterday. I will definately use some of them anyway. Now that I know I will be hungry next week for those 3 days I will be better prepared.

Why???Why am I so darned hungry?

The last few days have been rough. I have been STARVING during the day. From about 9am until about 3 pm I want to eat, eat, eat. I am finding filling foods and having them, and drinking a ton of water but nothing is helping.
I have gone home and had dinner and a snack and that helps but if I continue to be hungry like this during the day I am afraid I may just give in and have something I know I shouldn’t have! Too many points used there! Uggg!!!!
Any ideas? I have tried popcorn as a filler too and that isn’t working. I have gotten up from my desk and taken a good long walk. I have tried chewing gum, but besides making my jaw hurt it did nothing else. I have had a huge salad w/a bunch of wonderful veggies and some turkey on it for lunch today. I had 2 (1 pt) muffins that I made. I had grapes and some dried apples.
Uggg, looking at it I have eaten a ton but I am still hungry!!!! This sucks!

Call me coach!

Do you remember a couple of weeks ago I wrote about being called the WW Nazi? Well guess what? I am the only one of the group of 5 girls that called me that who has consitantly lost weight. One of them has asked me to “coach” her thru this week. I came in and told her several things she needed to do for the next week and how to track it so I can see it. If she doesn’t do what I told her to she has to come and clean my house for 8 hours.
Now, as much as I want her to succeed…a slave for 8 hours would be great. lol…seriously though, we picked something that we knew would motivate her to follow thru on b/c she does not like to clean.
Isn’t it funny how things work out sometimes?

Thanks to everyone for your support. It would definately be a lot harder to do this w/out you!

Chex 100 calorie packs!
