I came, I saw, and I conquered thanksgiving! I am happy to say I now weigh 164.4 and even though I have not been drinking water like I should I have had plenty of fluids and fruits.I did consume 5-6 glasses of water each day. I have not exceeded the 1300 calorie goal an I have been working out for a Least 45 minutes to a hour each day instead of 30 minutes. My food content of thanksgiving included food with fibers,grains,vegetables, and fruits( If I'm not mistaking grains and fiber are the same,lol) I tried to stay away from fatty foods like ham, and I can see it worked. My goal for next Week is to be 163. I hope I can, no wait.. I know I can!

with all the sad things that have been happening lately i finally got time to myself and exercise, i rode the bike for almost a hour last night just thinking of my life and how i can better things. i know i cant change a lot but i will try my best to not overdue on the exercise. i am so close to 160 i can taste it, i am determined to be 165 by the end of this week. i will ride the bike every night and i informed my family that i will not be eating like normal, my mom was excited and said "if your really serious about this weight loss idea, show me what your doing and the whole family can support/ join you".. hearing those words made my year so now i don't have to worry about being judged by what i eat, i can be the new me and chow down healthy style!..ha ha.. i need a little laugh to take my mind off the stress.i am not really a big turkey eater anyway but i love sweet potatoes and apple pie..i get hungry just reading the words0_0..my true test is Thursday i will try to pass with at least a 85% i am not going to claim i will be perfect because i know i wont but i will do the best i can not to overkill on the food.good luck to all and weigh in will be excellent:)

this week has been extremely hard, my uncle-in-law passed this morning right after my kids saw him for the first time; my daughter kissed him on the forehead and said "it's OK uncle Issac you can go home now, i love you", my son gave him a hug and 5 minutes later he smiled then passed. my husband is taking it pretty hard and so is my daughter;( When it comes to exercising i have been working out by walking a hour a day and drinking 10 glasses of water everyday. my weight is 166.1. I don't know if i have lost the weight from the miscarriage yet and i am still unsure of how long it will take:(.. as far as reading i have not read anything or even attempted to, I know its not a good thing but my mind has not been on trying to read it has been on family. i am kind of grateful this month is almost over and i can start getting back on tract. i hope everyone else had a great week.

so i don't think this has been a good month for me at all..i find out i had a miscarriage and now my uncle in-law has been rushed to the hospital with a very slim chance of survival they gave him until Sunday, so everyone is prepping themselves for the worst..my children's grandmother is very upset that she might have to bury another one of her kids and she has shut down completely so i am informing everyone now that if i do not check in this week this is the reason. Everyone on my husbands side of the family is very distraught due to this being the 7th death of a close family member this year. He is taking it harder than ever now because he was really close to his uncle. i am trying to be the support system for everyone so like i said if i do not update this weekend i am sorry, and i will make sure i update before next check in..

this week has started off on the right track, i was able to workout without any interruptions, i feel more confident about myself and more secure with my body more than ever now. i know i haven't reached my goal of intended weight loss yet but i know when i do nobody can ever try to put me down again; as for the miscarriage, i know my body is getting back on track and and i am going to help it more than ever now..i kind of cheated and took a step on the scale this morning just to see where i stood, i don't normally do this until Saturday morning but i know i am headed in the right direction, i have lost a few ounces since my last post.I am not going to lie i am kind of nervous about Thanksgiving because i come from a family of big eaters and i will have all eyes on me when i am not eating like i usually do. i might just stay home to avoid confrontation..i hope everyone else has a great week. i am going to the store tonight to look for a new book to lose since my children decided my previous one did not have enough color..lol

This week has been a hard week for me because no matter how much I exercised, I kept thinking about my miscarriage and the baby I would be carrying Which in turn made me eat. I unfortunately gained weight; I am now 167.4..so I gained a little over 2 pounds.:(.. This is very nerve wreaking in more than one way for me but I'm not giving up. I will lose the pity weight and more. I have drank 6 glasses of water every day and I have been walking more so I don't sit in the house and sulk but food became my crutch.. I need to find a way not to dwell on the loss and look at the 2 little blessings I have. Sorry if this is a upset to some but I am and I will be 160 by the end of this month!!!.. I am looking for a new book and I know it's late in the challenge but it was a requirement and I must fulfill it all ideas are open..

I have been walking but have been unable to ride my bike* doctors orders *...I have to buy a new book because my lovely kids decided it should look better with A LOT OF COLOR!... I have been drinking 6-7 glasses of water everyday and my calorie intake is still 1300. I am hoping everyone had a great week. My mind really isnt on the blog this week. Sorry.

so because i have lost a total of 15 pounds my fitness pal raised my calorie intake to 1440 instead of 1300..why is that..I'm am kind of confused on why it was raised and i did not do it.it did it once i updated my weight loss. can someone please explain to me why would your calorie intake increase instead of decrease, i know this is something i should know especially with working in the medical field but everyone keeps telling me "i don't know what to tell you, maybe its a sign to stop losing weight"..i am not listening to that answer because i am not losing weight for them i am doing it for myself and a better me in the future. since i lost these pounds my asthma doesn't bother me as much and i have been able to jog for 15 minutes without needing my inhaler.. before my weight loss i wasn't able to jog less than 5 minutes before i was puffing away. i am also losing weight because i am only 5'1" so with me being 180 at the time it was really hard to have a great self esteem..I'm 15 pounds lighter and i now feel my esteem rising and i actually can hold my head up without wondering what people are going to say about me when i leave.
