    Yes, I have to take responsibility for my mouth opening and shuting too much!!!


    But I would have to say if my Boys where not home for the summer I wouldn't have as much junk and food in the house.

    With an 11 and 19 yr. old home It's 3 meals a day and snacks, snacks, snacks.

    Thank goodness my younger son goes to summer camp for the week (next wk)
    and my 19 yr. old ( Who has a disability and goes to a summer school program )starts for the month of July.

    Maybe I can get back to my gym routine and light meals and snacks for awhile.

    But again I have to take control of my hands and mouth!

    Good Luck To Everyone!

    I take full responsibility. At the end of the day, the person to blame is staring back @ me in the mirror. Sometimes I get frustrated & ask "why me? why do i have to work so hard to lose weight?" But..I'm trying not to do that anymore. No matter how long it takes, i'm in this for the long haul !!
    The proof is in the pics!!! <3





    Starting over again!!!!

    Seargantsgirlfriend- i was diagnosed with PPD and was put on Zoloft and seen a therapist for the past year and even with that something is just wrong with me- beyond that. I feel like a stranger in my own skin- just not myself as a person but not like i want to commit suicide of anything like that i have many things to be happy about but i know i have many hormonal symptoms such as
    * I lose tons of hair daily
    * Moody
    * Irritable
    * My insulin levels were up recently in a blood test i had done
    * I sweat like crazy- something i never ever did
    * I get extremely hot even when it is like 80 degrees outside
    * I get severe headaches 2 weeks before my menstrual cycle
    * Get severe menstrual cramps
    * Feeling down in the dumps for no reason at all
    * Fuzzy cloudy brain
    * Acne
    * Irregular periods
    * Very difficult time losing weight
    * and i over feel like i aged tremendously- my body aches randomly
    * abnormal body hair growth

    I had two pregancies back to back i got pregnant in Jan 06 miscarried in March 06 and then got pregnant June 06 and had my son in March 07, I think the change of hormones between that and having an IUD in and out 6 months laters messed with my hormones....
    I will be seeing the doc soon, But thanks for worrying about me.

    It's me! Always has been. I am the one that made the choices to eat what I've eatten. I could have put it down but didn't. There are always outside circumstances that trigger me. Like my mom... she thinks I can't do it and I won't finish and if i do.. I will just gain it back like many times before. My hubby at times... I know he means well and he's just dumb like a guy at times. But the whole second guessing something that i put in my mouth with the comments of: " are you sure you should be eating that? You shouldn't have that!... Is that on your diet?" etc. Bugs the crap out of me and makes me want it more and then some!!! LOL He can make me snap! LOL But i love him! But for the most part it is my mom...

    I'm kind of like Katie....I self sabotage. I love food don't matter if it's healthy or junk food. I don't really have anything I don't like. From Chinese to Mexican to good ole southern fried chicken and beans and corn bread and fried squash and fried corn YUMMY....COME ON TENNESSEE GIRLS YOU KNOW WHERE I'M COMIN FROM LOL. I love it all. Food is my weakness! If I could ever get over the fact that I'm not getting to eat all of the wonderful garden stuff this summer I think I will do great. Well it's not the garden stuff, it's the way it's prepared.

    I could blame my job (i work in trucking so I get a lot of damaged cases of candy and pies and pizza and you name it) I would also like to blame my husband, i'm an emotional eater so when he and i argue i'm spinning out of control, i would also like to blame my kids for refusing to eat their vegetables and having to cook them all mac n cheese instead BUT, in the end, it all comes back to me and my willpower. last night I managed to only have a spoonfull of mac n chees versus the usual plate full! I have decided that only i made me fat. not Him, not my mother, not my grandparents. Just me and not giving a crap so I am the only one that is going to make me thin. Not Him (although he will totally be there on my journey), not my mother, not my lover and not my brother! ONLY ME!!
    Get thin and God Bless! Gina


    I swear I'm trapped in that body somewhere!

    07/14 - 215.5 (so close to 10 I can taste it!!)

    I would like to say my husband, but in the end I can only blame myself. He just brings home lots of bad foods, like chips and pop, but I need to learn how to control myself. That's the bottom line. But...Mexican food is my downfall.

    Thoughts about having so many unsupportive people in my family and friends circle make me sabatoge my diet sometimes and want to give up. This morning I woke up so sad and I had this hit of anxiety and worry about my child and then about my weight. My six year old is staying with my father over the summer in a different city because I can't afford summer camp and his father helps with none of the finances. So I worried about my baby for a little bit. Also, I had some type of feeling of that I might as well give up because I am still at 195 lbs and I have such along way to go. I'm gonna keep at this though and once I reach my goal, Im gonna do all I can to never look back because even mentally, weight gain does something to you.

    I'm gonna make it!
    Enjoy the feeling of being hungry

So I guess anyone who offers me a glass of wine!

    The worst is one of my guy friends bought me 2 $75 bottles of wonderful red wine that are sitting at my house... calling my name! Sigh...

    i can't count the times i've ruined my diet because of beer! i used to drink beer like it was going out of style......i could drink a 12 pack of budweiser every night and just bounce out of bed in the morning and roll to work. i could never do that now, but at the time i did it so much that 12 beers didn't phase me. that's how i gained a lot of my weight, too. beer has SO many calories in it....all of my daily calories were used up by beer alone. i hate to even think about how much i ate when i was drinking. it's never been hard for me to resist food, but i always wanted to drink after work and i would always give in and then eventually give up on my diet. but...now that i have 2 kids i just can't drink anymore. i couldn't even tell you the last time i had A beer. and not surprisingly, this is the first time i've been able to lose this much weight this quickly! i plan on having some beer when i go to the beach next month but hopefully i will be at my beach goal of 160 by then (or less) and not have to worry about all the calories. and this time i'll drink bud LIGHT instead of budweiser. duh!

    Pizza. Pizza does it to me every time!!

    Actually, it's hunger. If I get hungry look out! So I have learned to make sure I eat little things through the day.

    ugh...my job...I'm married to it. I love it and hate it. Today was very draining. mentally and physically. Been on phen for just over a week and I have sworn myself to proper eating and not taking the pills eratically. So today for breakfast at 7am I had fatfree milk and grapes. and I left work at 8:11 pm and realized I hadn't eaten anything else or even took my other half of my pill which I normally do in the afternoon. Bye bye metabolism.

    But ultimately it is only me hindering my weightloss.
    See ya at the beach, I'll be the fat one in the thong.

    school is my trigger....the stress of it all. i spend hours on the computer doing homework, and when i'm at work or doing things with the kids i'm stressing out because i need to be doing homework....i eat like an idiot, but i'm learning to deal with it.

    I did it!! Reached goal and have been here for quite a while thanks to low carb eating and working out like crazy! Phen didn't work for me, but that isn't to say that there aren't other ways. God bless all of you!

    I totally sabotage myself. I don't know what my problem is. I have addiction issues, depression, anxiety. I also have an under active thyroid and PCOS...so while I do have medical conditions working against me, the main problem is still ME. It's like it has to be one extreme or another. Either I eat too much and eat the wrong things, or I just don't eat at all. Which is what I have been doing with the phen, so I'm so scared I'm going to gain it back. I've had so much stress the last week that I haven't really been paying attention to what I'm eating. Also, TOM just came yesterday, so I feel like I could eat a house!

    It takes a long time for your body to adjust to all of the hormonal changes it has went through during and after pregnancy. The main issue you want to address is the depression. You want to make sure it's just some minor depression and not anything more serious. Depression is very common in new mothers.
