Well, well, well... I told you all before that I started keeping track of myself on the Prevention site, where you can punch in how much of what you eat, and how much of what you do... So - one of the things you can punch in is your measurements - you know, how many inches around is your: neck, chest, bicep, forearm, waist (yikes!!), hips (double yikes!!!!), thighs, and calves. I'm sure you could put in other ones, but those are the ones I entered. That was a month ago - so, I decided I'd take measurements again today, and compare. My weight has stayed pretty much the same over the last week or so, well okay - it went up a little. But I don't enter that! I only enter when it goes down!!! LOL Anyhow - I measured myself tonight to do a one-month comparison from last month. Guess what? I lost inches!! Now, I don't know how many inches you're supposed to lose, or any of that. Don't really care, actually... I just know that I've lost a total of 9.5 inches! My waist and hips are each 3 inches smaller, my thighs are 2 inches smaller (well, at least the one I measured is... I didn't measure both!!), and the various other places I measured (except my calves) are also a little smaller! (A little, as in an inch or less... but I don't care! It's smaller!!) My calves are the same - and they probably will stay that way. I have good ol' Kugler calves (my paternal grandmother's maiden name) and that's just the way it is. My husband says I come from good, sturdy stock!! I just had to share - I've never done the measurements before, but I'm glad I did. Even though my weight is staying pretty much the same, I can still see results!! So, now I'm hyped up again!! I just might pull this off yet, God willing!!

weight loss...

Well, ladies - since I have been logging my information into the "My Health Tracker" on Prevention.com, (which I believe was right around July 24th) I have lost 10 pounds! I'm fairly excited... I need to lose about another 70 pounds, but the first 10 is GONE!!! Woo hoo!! This is me doing the "happy dance" (you know, so I can burn even more calories!)

Well I have lost about 8 pounds and I think it was mainly stress, I am watching what I eat, cut back on fast food a great deal, and I think that helped......I also am spending time outside with the boys. Today I went and worked out, and I tell you that was hard....I took it slow though, I don't want to overdo anything.....but we worked out for about 40 minutes, on the weight machines and treadmill.....also went swimming after that. I count that as exercise too. LOL Anyway with my head cold and throat really hurting, I think I did pretty good.


Woo hoo!! Go Tammy! If I can do it, anybody can...

Startin' again...............

Good Morning my friends!
Well............. Although I havent gained any weight....... I havent lost any either. This summer has been so busy I havent thought once about my diet. I was wanting to lose the last 15 or so I've been struggling to focus on over this summer.. but as we see... that hasnt happen. So... as the summer starts to come to an end here..... I'm wanting to try and get focused.
I need to get out and walk the property ... drink more water... and just give a little extra effort to my goal.
So ........ today.......... I'm off to get a bottle of water.
then go take a walk before it gets to warm.

you all have a GREAT day.
drink your water and just take a little walk around your house.

One day at a time
One pound at a time!

God Bless,

Well, when I weighed myself yesterday, I was pleased to see the scale has gone down a bit!! From my heaviest, I have lost about 7 pounds - which you can't even tell, but the scale says that's the way it is, so I believe it! LOL Just thought I'd let you all know that something I'm doing is working! Just in case it's everything, I'm not stopping anything!!! LOL

Hope you all had a FABULOUS weekend!!
