Day 81

Submitted by Janetcooper07 on Thu, 01/04/2007 - 12:14pm.

For all of my bitching and griping I have lost a total of 19 lbs in 80 days and getting very close to my next big accomplisment of 20 lbs!  I now don't even think about it, it is just subconscious for me.  Free foods, stay away from limited foods, keep my food diary, look up the calories, etc... I have never accomplished anything like this on my own. 

Got the pics back from New Years,then I compared them to last years pics.  You can really tell a difference in my face and my figure, I am getting some nice curves! 

This one is for Rhonda"

I looked great for New Years Eve in my new size 10! I did it! Eat your heart out Nicky, I am getting there.  Anyway, Danny and I had a great time, we danced and had a blast.  We needed the night out, and it was great to show off a bit.

 Coming to work today was tough, but this morning I got an email on our weight loss challenge.  last year, the woman who won it lost 20 pounds in three months, but she is heavier today than when she started.  Yikes!!!!!!!!!!!! Anyway, i think I am going to join and see if someone else wants to join my plan.

Last weigh in, another 1/2 lb. down!!!!!

Day 74

Submitted by Janetcooper07 on Thu, 12/28/2006 - 11:41am.

I have lost another 1 1/2 lb. over Christmas!  Yeah!!!!! I am now at 175.5, for a total of 17.5 lbs. in ten weeks! This is the first time that I have ever lost any weight of substance, so I have the right to be excited. 

The other good news is that I got a nice card and Christmas present, The Diet Smart Plan is giving me 3 additional months free, so I got more time to write and hopefully get to 20 lbs. real soon. 

 I am at work and no one is in the office, which is good, I could do with the peace and quite today.  It has been insane and I need the peace and quite.

Day 69

I am really busy today, but I lost another lb.! even during a holiday week.  I have a coworker (monica) who is interested in joining DSP after the holidays, she went to the website (www.thedietsmartplan.com) at lunch yesterday and she said that the cost was $14.95 for six months! I guess they are running a holiday special. 

I will write after Christmas, Merry Christmas everyone!

Hi everyone, I guess my ranting and raving and pouring my heart out was just steam.  I am down another 1/2 lb. this morning!  I also think with cookies and such in the oven tonight that weight loss from here on in until new years maybe tough. 

Danny surprised me last night with tickets for new years and then lined up a babysitter for the night.  I have to go and buy a new dress.  I am looking forward to buying a size 10 rather than a size 14, so maybe the cookies will have to weight.

My food diary this week looks better than I thought, DSP has said some nice things about the last fe

Day 65

Submitted by Janetcooper07 on Tue, 12/19/2006 - 12:15pm.

I am feeling somewhat better today, but I am still overwhelmed with the holidays on top of me.  This is my first season working and I feel I am so far behind, I doubt that everything will be done by xmas.  The kids are decorating and Danny has been a big help.

Speaking of big help, the diet coaches at DSP have been great.  Every day I get a tip of the day and some of them are really good.  The problem I am having is that I don't have time to incorporate all of them, I am having trouble simply weighing in and eating my snacks. I think I need to email them and ask them to start snack time over for me until the 1st.

Day 64

Submitted by Janetcooper07 on Mon, 12/18/2006 - 12:30pm.

NINE WEEKS ON A DIET, I really feel like I am missing out this time of year.  I am really depressed and I am not happy right now, it maybe just the monday's but I was not happy this weekend and self denial did not help.  I am stressed about the shopping, I haven't sent out the first xmas card, I have not wrapped nor shipped gifts, the kids are out of control, they are out of school all next week and I have to work a couple of days since I don't have vacation.

Danny has lost weight too, he is starting to look very good.  I am noticing probably about a 10 lb. weight loss in him and he is t

Day 60

I can't believe I am on day 6-0! Yeah me, I have stuck with it and now have lost 15 lbs.  I think I am going to have to post in that section on the member boards tonight as a small accomplishment.

 time for a snack, hold on.  As I sit here and eat my granola bar, I am reflecting on how far I have come.  Not in terms of weight loss, yeah, that is nice, but more importantly, the change in me.  I am no longer dominated by food and I have more energy.  My weekends are more active, I have a fulfilling and rewarding job, I enjoy eating, and I have self esteem.

Ask me if it is worth it, I

Day 57

Submitted by Janetcooper07 on Mon, 12/11/2006 - 5:46pm.

I am now at 188.5 lbs, down 14.5 in 8 weeks.  I have spent no money except for my sign up fees of $30, I guess that is a good investment.  I am walking at night, but with everyone sick, I really need some time to myself to regroup.  I feel guilty about working, shopping, and trying to be a good mom and wife.  I am getting my size 10 clothes, Danny seems to think that I look better in them, he really noticed the difference while he was laying on the couch (he stayed home today) and I walked by, he called me and told me that he really notices it in my face and my tush.
