Going Up

I went to Weight Watchers on Saturday and I gained 2 pounds. I don't know how i feel about that yet and i did a horrable job this weekend of staying on plan. I have to get back on track. I am finally feeling better so now i will be able to work out.

I went to Target to buy my jump rope and guess what? They did not have it not only that but they also did not have any of the DVDs that i wanted to buy. So i will have to stick to my regular workout for a little while longer.

Just A Pretty Face

Why is it that when you are overweight or curvy (as I like to call it) you always here the same thing from guys " You have such a pretty face" That's it, that is all I get? I have a pretty face, no shit I already knew that.

They never say, " You are so damn hot I had to come over here and talk to you" or " Damn you are sexy/fine whatever you want to put in here". We don't even get those cheesy pick up lines that most women hear. Nope it's always the face, or the eyes or the lips what about the rest of me? In our you-have-to-be-as-thin-as-a-cracker society having curves is not a good thing especially if you have one to many.

This upsets me because there are a lot of AMAZING women out there who just happen to be overweight and they are being over looked. I am talking about smart, funny, incredible women. Since when does being over weight make you un-dateable? Can anyone tell me because I think I missed that memo?

Still Sick

I am still sick and i still feel like carp but now it is worse because i feel dizzy and light headed so as you can guess i have not worked out and i dont feel like eating. I am going to go lay down.

Being Sick Sucks

I hate being sick i was not able to go to Target last night because i felt like crap and all i wanted to do was go to sleep so that is what i did when i got home i went to bed. Well first i had to go to the bank for my dad but after that i went to bed. So as you can guess i did not get to work out last night either.

Houston We Have A Problem...

Where did my butt go? It was there a few days ago. Does anyone know?...anyone? If you see it could you please tell it to call home. Dude what the hell is going on here my butt is smaller now i know some people want to have a small butt, but not me i like my big hispanic butt and i want it back. First Caro and now me...damn you pilates.

I did not get to work out yesterday because we had Parent/Teacher Conferences last night so i was here till about 8 and when i got home i was so tired i just went to sleep. I did "good" though we had pagatii for dinner and i had only a little bit of pagatii with salad and two slices of bread. I heart bread and i don't think i can ever give it up. I am going to work out tonight and i still have to go to Target. I have to say that i heart Target if i could live there i think i would. Caro called me last night and told me that her friend Eileen is now reading my blog. You mean people actually read this? Hi Elieen! *waves* Wow that is pretty cool i have a reader who is not related to me. I feel loved. Ok i must go these people expect me to work.

I finally was able to workout.

Yes ,Finally I was able to workout for a whole hour yesterday and i felt great afterwards. I am not going to be able to go to any meetings this week. I am just to busy so i am just going to wait to go on Saturday since i dont have class this weekend.

Today i was walking out of my classroom (for those of you who don't know i work in a middle school)and I caught a glimps of myself in a hallway mirror and i had to stop and go who is that? I could not believe it was me I might not be losing pounds but i am losing inches. It was a cool moment.

Today after work i think i am going to srop by Target and buy a weighted jump rope so i can start to firm and tone my body even more. Well got to go.

Weekend Update

So I usually go to Weight Watchers meetings on Saturday. This Saturday i was unable to go because i started school , my class is on Saturdays and Sunday.

So I am going to try to make it to a meeting during the week. I have never been to a meeting during the week so this should be fun.

I still have to workout since last time i wrote here i have not worked out. I can see the difference though. My thigh are smaller and my pants are starting to feel big on me. I had a pretty emotional weekend and believe it our not i was able to stick to the plan. Which is cool.

It really is going to be a year of change.

So Tired

Yesterday was a very long day for me and by the time I got home I was so tired that I did not work out at all. In fact I was asleep by 8. The good news is that I did go to the supermarket and I bought healthy snacks.

Working Out Is Hard To Do

I know that exercising plays an important role in weight lost but why is it so hard for me to be motivated to work out. I like working out I really do and once I get start I find myself enjoying it. I really don’t know what is wrong with me how could one like to work out but then have a hard time working out? I don’t know I tell you I am weird.

Right now I am working out at home. I have two workout DVD's one is Winsor Pilates, I love that workout I find it so relaxing and I feel taller when I am done. My second is CRUNCH Cardio Salsa again I love the workout and I feel great once I am done. I am planning on buying two more DVD's as well as a weighted jump rope next week when I get paid. I love jump roping it's the one athletic thing that I have always been good at.

This week I have worked out on both Monday and Tuesday but only for 38 min. I usually work out for an hour. I am going to have to step it up today and do my normal hour workout.

So I know what you are thinking, " What is the problem?" the problem is that once I get home I sit down. Whether it is in a chair or on the couch or sometimes when I lay down on the floor because I am so tired. Once I sit down it is hard for me to get back up and that is the problem I don’t have the motivation to get back up and workout. So once I sit I stay sitting and then the time just fly’s by and before I notice it, it is time for me to go to bed and I have not worked out.

So I have been thinking of different ways to get motivated and so far none have worked. So if anyone has any ideas please let me know.

Real Women Have Curves....

And it seems that I have too many.

Welcome to my blog. Here I will post my weight lost journey. I joined Weight Watchers back in September of 2004 and have been going there ever since. My starting weight was 206 lbs. Being only 5'6 that made me overweight. I have been overweight all my life but it was a family picture mixed in with a few other facts that have helped me decide that now it is time to lose the weight.

Currently I weigh 201 lbs. I know what you are thinking you have been going to weight watchers for 4 months and are still weighing about the same. The last four months have been a vicious cycle of gaining and losing the same 7 lbs. Now how does one do that gain and lose the same pounds over and over again, its call self-sabotage and now I am feed up and am committed to lose the weight. That is why i made this blog to help me be accountable for my weight lost.

So now join me as i cut the fat.
