Weigh In Wednesday.... a bit late

I weighed in this morning at 207 pounds. That is a 3 pound loss. WOOHOO!!! I am going to keep up doing this calorie counting program and hopefully I will be able to lose more. My hope is that I can be under 200 pounds very soon.

Calorie Counting

I have downloaded a food log to help count calories. Lets see if this will help me in my hope to lose some weight. I have done it for 3 days now so I won't have much to show this week but hopefully by next week I will have something to brag about even 1 pound will make me happy.

Weigh In Wednesday

I am still sitting at 210lbs. I, like many other people, just wish there was a miracle thin pill or that the weight would just fall off. The Man is still working his night shifts which puts a damper on lots of things I would like to do. I'm going to have to figure out how to do some exercises at home in my small spaces or I will never get this weight under control. I am not sure where to start with exercising at home. I have no DVDs or any clue what kinds of exercises will work. Do you have any suggestions for a cheap DVD or a website that might have some valuable information for me?

I Need Sleep

I have been having a real hard time, recently, falling asleep. I haven't been taking a nap during the day or anything so I am not sure why when bed time comes I just cannot wind down and fall asleep. It feels like my arms and legs are still trying to keep moving. Last night I fell asleep after 1 a.m. but by 345 a.m. K woke up screaming. He had a bad dream. I put him in bed with me thinking that would be the quickest way for me to calm him and get him back to sleep so I could go back to sleep. Boy was I wrong. He just fidgeted and rolled around and moved and did not go back to sleep fully. Then when the alarm went off this morning for S's dental appointment all ideas of sleeping were out the window. I will say that I need my sleep. I have always needed my sleep and I am not sure today is going to be a very good day. I am sore, have a headache, and am super sleepy. I am going to hope and pray that the little boys will take a nap today (HAHA) so that I can try to get a bit more sleep.

My friend Heather just started selling Scentsy products so I decided to try some since I love to burn candles in my house. I spent $35 plus shipping for a mid-size system. This came with a mid-size warmer and 3 scents of my choice. I was pleased to find out that they would send directly to my APO address and it took only 11 days total from order placed til it was in my hands. I started using the Orange Dreamsicle today and my house smells amazing. These warmers plug into the wall and use a light bulb to melt the wax so there is no candle burning. I love this because I can keep the fragrance going and not worry about one of my kids blowing out my candles. They have lots of great fragrances and many warmers to chose from. Please take a few minutes to stop by her site and check it out. I am hooked and will be placing more orders in the future.

Weigh In Wednesday

So, I am officially a FAT ASS! I am now at 210. I hate being fat! I am only 5 foot 2 inches. I am not supposed to weigh this much. I cant seem to lose weight while breastfeeding like I should be able to. I know that the majority of my problem is ME. I eat too much. I eat too much of the wrong stuff. I am not proud of myself for doing this to myself. I keep trying to control the diets in this house so that my children do not end up like me but I cant seem to have my own self control. I generally eat good food. I just eat way too much (obviously). I love food but my food issues are going to kill me if I keep this up.
