lost 0.5 pounds since her last weigh-in! She's lost 0.4 pounds so far.

I'm excited that I can finally start losing weight again, and am under my starting weight when I started MFP. :)
For our anniversary 11 days ago we went on a little trip to bear lake. It has been one of our favorite little getaway spots. We first went there 3 years ago, and I was looking at pictures through my facebook. and found one that I thought I looked so heavy in.  Sadly the pants that look a little baggy here do not fit anymore, and the shirt definitely is not that loose anymore. It's actually kind of tight. I just wish I would of been more happy with the weight I was back then. (I'm estimating that I was around 180 there) Sadly I'm almost 50lbs heavier now and it is going to take me months to get back there.

I had pizza for dinner last night so I am trying hard to get 16 glasses of water in to flush some of that sodium!

Other random news..I decided as a little bit of a motivator I am going to award myself little awards for losing weight.  We got a 55 gallon fish tank from my in laws and I am desperate to fill it with fish. Currently we have a few guppies in there that I transferred from my 20 gallon just to test out the water.  Once I reach 225 (only 3.4 lbs to go) I am going to buy a fish or two for the tank :) I am obsessed with fish. I just LOVE to stare at them and watch them swim. Yes I'm a nerd, I know.

good bye 2oz of a pound :)

I know losing .2lbs in a day doesn't seem like much but I am so happy to be losing again. Even though it is only day 3 I am already feeling better and a little smaller, I'm not quite as bloated I don't think.  10lbs on me makes such a huge deal I remember way back when I had lost 12lbs or something like that and I was actually looking pretty small. I just wish I didn't hate myself so much in high school when I weighed 160/170. I used to think I was so fat, when in reality I would kill to be that size again. One day I will get there, but for now I am going to try really hard not to hate my 229.1 lb body.

Day 2

Well it almost finishes off day 2 of working out and eating better. I'm a little tired but am already feeling better. My legs are sore from all those squats though :) I don't really have anything to say. I was just feeling sort of proud of myself. I still have about 600 calories left to eat for the day however. I am going to make myself a healthy dinner, then I'm sure I will be back on to edit, or maybe I will finish the hat orders that I have. anyways..toodles

The waiting game...

I have sadly neglected this blog for the past 19 days :( This also means I have been eating crap and not really exercising. Yesterday I decided to jump back on the band wagon..and I weighed in at 230.4 holy heavens!! Officially my heaviest weight ever :( Well I exercised yesterday for about an hour and ate fairly descent. I weighed in this morning at 229.3 so at least I lost :) According to my schedule I need to lose another 9.3lbs by the 30th of this month. If I work my rear off I just might be able to catch up :)
Also if we are still on track for our Florida trip in December I have 240 days left to lose 89 lbs. that's only .37 lbs a day to get to my goal weight (yesterday it was .38 lbs. :) )

All of this could be put on hold a bit if I am pregnant though. Yesterday I didn't quite feel like myself. I had little butterflies all day and a little nausea, but nothing came up. We did indeed try on my suspected ovulation days and according to my calendar I could of started yesterday since I started on the 19th the month of January & February. March I didn't start until the 23rd however. So I just get to wait..I absolutely hate this part. I wait a while get antsy, take a test and it's a negative. I usually start the next day after taking the test anyways. So this time I am waiting 2 weeks. or until I really start to show signs. So the countdown begins.

Fur Child

I didn't mention this in my last post but my child has fur. He is a 1.5 year old black dachshund. His name is Shadow.

I love him just as much as I would love my own baby I am sure. He is the most spoiled thing on the planet.

Well we just got back from a 45 minute walk around the neighborhood and I was so proud of him. Only barked one time at a HUGE dog (I'm quite certain he was actually a horse)

I'm not quite sure where this post is going, I am rambling today so this is going to be a rambling blog.
I am going to try to exercise for an hour every day for 31 days (until May 1) I want to lose 10lbs a month and get my body ready to have a baby. I am quite over weight and am surprised that I am admitting that. I know that my weight probably has a huge issue on me getting pregnant. I have set up some mini goals and unless I get pregnant before my 23rd birthday I should achieve my goal of weighing 140 lbs by then :)
Here they are..I am going to post these on the side bar as well to remind me every day.
