June 26th and 27th

June 26th, 08
Not much to say today. I worked out. Ate right! And worked today!

June 27th, 08
Today is Friday yay and I have another 3 days off I’m so excited! However when I woke up this morning I wasn’t feeling to well, but you know me I had to get my work out in. So had a good work out and a little later on ate lunch but then I became extremely tired but I knew I couldn’t eat then lay down so I did another full workout then took a nap. Well this nap became not a nap I was in bed for 4 hours. Before I knew it, it was 9p and when I woke up I was starving so I ate very little but it was really too late to be eating so I did another full workout so that way when I went to bed I would have already burned the calories from dinner and they wouldn’t just be sitting there becoming fat! Plus on the days I don’t work I like to do a lot of workouts if not I will get bored and end up eating instead. It was a good day even though I didn’t feel good. God is just so great and gives us the strength to do anything.

Been a few days....

June 19th-22nd
Well our camping trip was GREAT for the most part. The Lord blessed us with AWESOME weather even though it was suppose to rain the entire weekend. We went to the Big Ticket Festival on Friday which was Chris’ bday and we were so blessed in being there. It was a great day of praise! Then there was Saturday and we did some 4 wheelin which was tons of fun until I hear a siron behind me and its DNR…apparently I was off roading where I shouldn’t be and I got a ticket but not only that had to pay $100 bond to keep me from going to jail and my atv from being impounded. They actually held me there and my atv for over an hour….funny now…wasn’t funny then! I am proud of myself though because even though I was on vacation I got up before everyone else and worked out every day! Thank you God for an awesome weekend!

June 23rd, 08
Back to work….I feel yucky this week. When I look in the mirror I keep seeing the old me back when I first started and I feel like I look like I have lost no weight at all. I know weird right. I know I don’t look the same but for some reason just don’t feel that way this week. I have even been having dreams that when I wake up I will have gained all my weight back…craziness I know…but I will get past it! God is good!

June 24th, 08
Today I worked a double and didn’t get a chance to get a work out in however I went to Chicago for the day and went to the shedd aquarium, and navy pier. So I walked the entire day! It was a good day it was beautiful walking the pier and the aquarium was just great!

June 25th, 08
I can’t believe it is already the end of June! This year is flying by. Today was weigh day and it wasn’t what I hoped for but it was something. I lost 2 lbs…not enough but I will take it. I feel like I’m working so hard and wish the numbers of loss were bigger…but I also have to understand that now that I’m smaller the numbers each week will be smaller too! Its all good! God is good! I’m setting a goal of 4.5 lbs to lose this week!

Zero this week....

June 18th, 08
Weigh day….so I lost nothing this week! I’m bummed! But I kinda expected it because I figured that I have lost so much weight so far that soon my body was going to freak out and want to try to hold on to it. This is going to be hard to break through this point and keep dropping because I have never been less than what I am now. But I’m going to keep pushing until the weight falls! Well I better go get my workout in and then get packing for another camping trip we leave tomorrow morning yay! Thank you Lord for giving me the strength to push through and not give up even during the weeks that the scale doesn’t budge!

Catching up on entries...I'm a few days behind!

June 12th, 08
Today I am packing all morning(but I did get my workout in) and we are leaving for Flint tonight yay! See you on Monday!

June 13th-15th, 08
Well Friday I went back up to my old job and everyone was great. They were so excited to see me and the weight I had lost. The said I’m an inspiration to them. It was great. Then we went camping for the weekend. It was great fun! I did great with eating(you know when camping its easy to over eat and just snack, snack, snack but I didn’t I did really well! Thank you Lord for such a great weekend.

June 16th, 08
Well no work out today we drove home in the morning and then I had to get ready for work, then off to work I went so nothing really to say for today except for God is Good!

June 17th, 08
Getting back into the swing of things with my regular workouts(it was hard with camping I mean I was very active but didn’t have my set aside workout time). I’m hoping I lost weight this week…we shall see in the morning. For some reason every time we come back from a weekend away I either lost like a half pound or nothing which is super frustrating because I do so well while gone. But I guess nothing or a half pound is better than gaining any day. Chris seems to think I must retain water or something but whatever. We will see tomorrow. God please let me have lost at least a couple pounds this week!

I HIT MY first BIG GOAL...time to set a new one!!!!!!!

June 10th, 08
Only a couple more days till we go camping and I’m very excited! I’m still working out hard!!!! Tomorrow is weigh day and I’m looking forward to it.

June 11th, 08
So I weighed today and I lost 5 lbs which puts me past my one hundred pounds!!!! Can you believe it. I weigh 270! So I’m at a total of 102.8 so pretty much 103 lbs lost….unbelievable, but its true! No surgery….no pills….just a lot of God and fam and friends support, healthy eating and lots of exercise! So now its time for me to set up a new goal. This time I am going to set for 50 lbs so that will be around 220. Once I reach that I will set another 50 pound loss goal. But I don’t want to make the number huge so I’m going with 50 for this time. I have never been smaller than this outside of second grade…lol…but really I don’t know what weight is the right weight for me so I’m going to start breaking my goals down till I figure it out! Have a blessed day! Thank you God for helping me reach this goal that I didn’t think I would ever hit….you are so good!!!

A great day....

June 9th, 08
I’m feeling great today! God is working on me BIG TIME! In so many ways. Mentally, emotionally, spiritually, and physically! He has put a fire back in me that I had lost. I got up bright and early this morning and got my workout in before my meeting at work at 9:30 which was great it left me so much more time to be able to just chill with my hubby and get some of Gods word in, which I had been just pushing off when I didn’t have time. I’m super excited because we are camping this weekend and I can’t wait its going to be great fun! I’m also super excited for weigh day coming up because I have been working so super hard this week to not only hit my 100lb mark but to pass it. We are going to Missouri July 23rd and I would like to lose 30 more pounds by then which I know is pushing it but I have to push myself I can’t just get compfy because of how much weight I have lost I have to push even harder! Well have a blessed day. And if you have any needs and want me to pray for them let me know on my blog I’m willing to pray and believe for whatever your need is! BE BLESSED!

just a busy day....

June 8th, 08
Well it was another busy day as most Sundays that I work are. Got up, worked out, did church, had lunch, saw Mel’s baby at the hospital then went to work. It was a great day! God just thank you!

Some words of hope and encouragement....

June 7th, 08
Well yesterdays plans changed because my friend went into labor so the last half of the day I spent right here in front of the computer watching the revival in Florida. God is doing some amazing things! The time I spent here I prayed a lot, praised God and was given some wonderful verses of hope and encouragement. “If you abide in me and my words in you ask what you desire and it shall be done” John 15. Now here when God says ask what you desire and it shall be done he is not talking about a new car, but it could be to get your finances in order, or to be closer to him, or in my case a child, and many other things such as friends and family who don’t know Him to be saved, for God to use me, and for strength. Maybe you should write this verse down some where and behind it write down what you are believing for. A few more I got was “Wait patiently for the Lord. Be Brave and Courageous. Yes, Wait patiently for the Lord.” Psalms 27:14 and “The Lord gives his people strength. The Lord blesses them with peace.” Psalms 29:11 and “Delight yourself in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart” Psalms 37:3-5. So just believe whatever your desire is that the Lord is going to grant it to you but in His timing not ours. Just because it doesn’t appear that he is answering our prayers at this moment doesn’t mean that he isn’t. remember God has the perfect timing for everything in our lives so just wait upon him! Have a blessed day! I’m gonna go get my workout in. See you tomorrow. God is good.

Giving it to God....

June 5th, 08
So today I’m feeling better than yesterday. God provided things yesterday just at the times I needed them from one person in particular that I would have never thought of and she didn‘t even know I was upset about anything, that is how I know Gods hand was in it and he was trying to tell me he is still there and listening. I know God is in control and he cares for me and is going to work everything out. I’m super excited about being so close to my 100lb goal. I know I’m going to hit it this week! I’m happy I have the day off tomorrow and I’m going to spend the first half with my amazing supportive hubby and the last half with a very good friend. God continue to be with me and helping me and THANK YOU! Please be with anyone who reads this and help them with whatever they are going through.

June 6th, 08
Today I have the day off…THANK GOD! This morning I had a good work out. And now I’m spending time with my hubby. This evening I’m going to hang out with a great friend who is overdue so I think we are going to try to walk that baby out. Thank you Lord for this day! I give it to you!

June 4th, 08
So its weigh day and thank the Lord I actually lost 2 lbs. Now I’m 2.2 away from 100lbs! So I’m happy with that and thankful for it. I’m really down today though for multiple reasons. I have a situation at work that I’m dealing with that is just well….there are no words for it really. And then of course the fact that I really thought this month was the month for us to be pregnant. Then last night a friend(the person will remain unnamed) who is married and her and her husband live with her parents and have a baby who is 8 months old just emailed my husband to tell him that they were pregnant again but didn’t want to tell me because they didn’t want to upset me. First of all to think my husband would keep something from me is ridiculous. Second of all….oh never mind….-no judging tracy- no judging tracy- no judging! I have to go pray and work out because my mind is not right, right now. I’m so frustrated that I just don’t know what to do with myself. I still thank God for being who he is and I know everything will work out and I know one day we will be blessed with a child…I’m just wondering when….. And my frustrations well I know He has got it under control I just have to hand them over to Him instead of harboring them inside! God has brought me so far, He really has changed my heart and how I see things!

Feeling yucky and bummed....

June 3rd, 08
Its still really early and I haven’t done anything so far. I’m feeling yucky but still plan to exercise however its about that time again which means I can’t put too many hopes into tomorrows weigh day and I was really hoping to the 100lb mark to be hit but I can tell that is not going to happen. I just hope I’m not retaining water and that I don’t gain anything… that would seriously bumm me out. I’m also bummed that we are not pregnant this month…well I know its another month to knock 10 more pounds out but I can’t help it that I’m disappointed I’m sure that is partly why I also feel yucky. Well there is nothing I can do about it, it really is in Gods hands so that is where I have to leave it. Hope everyone has a blessed day. Keep your fingers crossed for me tomorrow…at least that I didn’t gain. I shouldn’t gain because I didn’t do anything that I shouldn’t and I have exercised every day but we all know what the beginning of period week is like! See you tomorrow. Have a blessed day!

Swimsuit shopping....

June 2nd 08
I had a good workout this morning but got tired pretty quickly, at least way sooner than usual. Then Chris and I walked to the store. We went to Fashion Bug because I wanted to look at swimsuits. Well I grabbed a 22 and for wishful thinking also grabbed a 20(it’s a tankini with a skirt bottom and obviously you can’t have it be too tight or the skirt wont look like a skirt). So I go into the changing room to try them on…and…what do you know the 20 fits. Yeah pretty ridiculous that I’m excited about getting into a 20 but I don’t care I am. You see last summer I went swimsuit shopping with my mom and I was trying on 28s and they did not even fit. The top would roll up over my fat self and the bottoms didn’t look like skirts so I refused to buy bigger than a 28 so I didn’t buy one and now this summer I put on a 20 with no rolling up and the skirt looks like a skirt I could hardly believe it. I’m so happy about that! So YAY!

Its summer...

May 31st, 08
Oh its so nice to have a weekend off and not have to go any where(especially with gas as expensive as it is!). It has been nice just working out. And spending time with my hubby and our dogs! I can’t believe that June is just one day away. Time is flying! Things are good. Workouts are still hard! But I’m loving living!

June 1st, 08
Its June! Its officially a summer month! I can’t believe it. I’m going to enjoy this summer so much more than last! With being almost 100lbs lighter this summer is going to be excellent! Have a blessed day!
