Okay - NOW I've done it!! Ugh!! My sister (she's my favorite sister... well, okay, so she's the only sister I've got, but she's still my favorite!!) took me and our mom out for dinner tonight to celebrate our birthdays. (My birthday is the day before my mom's... and my sister's is actually two weeks after mom's... LOL) So, anyhow - my wonderful, favorite and only sister took us out to eat - at a Chinese buffet!!! Oh, how I love my Chinese cuisine... unfortunately, this happened right after I'd recorded a 3 pound loss on my Prevention health tracker... oh, well - it was certainly YUMMY!! LOL So, I've yet to see how far this little excursion has set me back, but I'm determined to persevere!!! eventually.... I'm STILL stuffed to the gills... of course, I've been chugging down the ol' water to try and make up for all the sodium that's hidden in Chinese food... We all agreed that next time, we will AVOID the buffet-style restaurants, and stick to someplace where you get one small plate of food!! (I promise to report on the outcome of the next outing... who knows when that will happen???)

Oh - by the way - where is everyone at??? Am I the only one posting??? (Never mind, that's a dumb question... forget I asked it...) Jump on in here anytime, ladies!! LOL

Take care...

online help!!

Hey all - my friend Theresa told me about something at Prevention's website that should help keep everyone accountable to themselves... I have checked it out, and it looks like it might be very helpful! I've punched in how much weight I want to lose, when I want to lose it by, what my lifestyle is like, etc... it tells me how many calories to eat each day, to reach my goal. (Guess what?!? My calories per day total was NOT in the negative!!! Woo hoo!! LOL) I like that I put in the stuff I do, and it just spits out the statistics - no frowning or tsk tsk's at all! And I'm the only one that sees it... so lying doesn't do any good at all... LOL Any how, I thought I'd share the link in case anyone else is interested. Oh, and it's free! You can check it out here and then just click on the "my health trackers" tab. I hope everyone else is doing well with their progress - I'm not, but I'm also just getting started...

Take care everyone!!

Well, my friend Kelly and I went for a walk today; I have no idea how far it is from my house to the school track, but we walked that far, then we did 7 laps (which is 1.75 miles) and then we walked back. I am used to walking, and have never had a difficult time with it - but this time, I am feeling it already! I will be taking a couple ibuprofen tonight before bed, and hopefully tomorrow's walk will not be felt quite so readily!!! This is the first real action I've taken to get into any kind of shape (besides round) so here's to keeping up with it!! Wish me luck... LOL
