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.

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?

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
