For those who don't know me, here's a bit.........

I am a "sort-of" SAHM Mom to two teens..... DD is 17.5 and DS is days away from 15. I have been married for 20 years (yikes!) and currently live in a rural area of south central NH, near Manchester.

I struggled with some weight issues through my teens, but in looking back is was mostly in my head. Maybe a few pounds here are there, but overall I was an "average" size teen (although I did attend WW for the first time at about age 13 and lost 35 pounds with WW at about age 15). Started to put on some pounds in college and went up and down. Hit a new high in my pre-marriage days of the high 170's, but managed to lose it and get married at about 140.

Fast forward about 8 years and two pregnancies and a very sedentary rural life and suddenly I am in the 200's and NOT happy with myself at all. I took repeated short-lived trips with WW numerous times between 1993 and 2004, all with varying degrees of success, but none of the success lasted. My highest "official" weight recorded was 219, but I'm SURE I was higher than that at a few points.

I started WW again in earnest on January 2, 2008, for an upcoming WDW trip, managed to overshoot my goal by April and was happy with how I looked at about 168-170 for that trip. But the difference this time is that I KEPT GOING! I didn't look at a few "vacation pounds gained" as an excuse to give up! I got right back on track at the end of that trip and haven't looked back! I realized that it needed to be a LIFELONG JOURNEY rather than a temporary visit to "healthy eating land"!!

I lost about 90 pounds (depending on what day it is ) and have kept it off for 3+ years! And I am SO thrilled with that.... every-single-day!!

QOTD for Thursday, January 10, 2013:

What is going to make the difference for you this time? Are you trying to eat "healthy" rather than just to lose weight? Are you starting regular exercise for the first time? Did you have a health scare that pushed you in the right direction? Presuming that like me, you have tried to lose weight before, what is DIFFERENT this time that is going to make you successful!

BONUS QOTD: What is your absolute TOP THREE favorite super-low cal or virtually no-cal go-to snack/drink? (Something under 50 calories for a serving would qualify here.) ......................P
I think the difference this time is that I have no more excuses. Over the past 5 years I've had 3 kids and after each one I would think "well, I really need to lose a lot of weight BUT I'm just going to put a bunch back on when we have our next baby... so what's the point of doing it now?" Stupid way to think, but there it is. Now that we're done having kids and our oldest DD is getting older I just really want to be healthy for myself and for my kids. To be able to keep up with them and for them to not be embarrased by me. I also don't want my kids struggling like I did and want to instill good eating habits in them.

I don't really have a lot of very low cal snacks. I drink a lot of water and I love frozen grapes.

I have got to go finish up last bits of packing - our flight is at 7:30am! Off to see a mouse about a medal!
Ugh my FIL is the worst with this. Whenever we talk about weight loss he says well really it's all about portion control. Because to him, if he gets just one meal from McDonald's instead of 2 he drops 20 pounds!!! I'm already eating sensible portions!! Drives me crazy that he can just cut his junk food in half and hop on the elliptical 30 mins every few days and drop a ton of weight.

Watch out! It can be addicting! But honestly.... how great that she is learning to swim YOUNG. It is a wonderful activity for both fun and exercise, and it is a great SAFETY thing!

I have got to go finish up last bits of packing - our flight is at 7:30am! Off to see a mouse about a medal!
Have a WONDERFUL trip and a GREAT run!!

I hear you! I was so thrilled the first time I took DD somewhere with some "mean girls" around and realized that I would be fodder for their teasing (at least, not for being the "fat"mom). And I LOVE the example I continue to set for my kids! DS has gone from LOVING fast food to barely tolerating it. The only time we stop at McD's is for the $1 coffee or the occasional soft serve cone. I love that my kids KNOW how important it is to eat a healthy, organic, well-rounded diet and get REGULAR exercise. I may be a total screw-up in other areas of parenting, but I know I've done right by them in this regard!

I don't really have a lot of very low cal snacks. I drink a lot of water and I love frozen grapes.

My DFIL tried to convince us for a while that he was dropping weight just by eating half a potato with each meal instead of a whole potato! Come to find out, he was an undiagnosed diabetic!

*********

Good Friday morning friends! Bright and sunny here with some icy conditions predicted for tonight. I'm teaching 3rd grade again, so I'll be popping off and on today.

I had a great weigh-in this morning and I am thrilled to say that I have lost nearly all of that holiday weight! What a relief!

Up next.... today's QOTD!............P

QOTD for Friday, January 11, 2013:

Here is my list of ten things to do when the cravings strike hard. What can you add to it??


1. Brush and floss your teeth. Who wants to mess up such nice clean teeth?


2. Go to bed. If it is near bedtime, just get away from the kitchen and go to sleep!


3. Throw away the food. If it is that much of a temptation it probably shouldn't be in the house.


4. Go back and read day#1 of your food journal, look at your "before" picture, find a great "after" outfit... do SOMETHING to bring back that feeling of "I CAN DO THIS!"


5. Go for a walk or play an active game (Wii, charades, Simon Says) with your family.


6. Indulge in another loved activity (other than eating ) such as scrapbooking, genealogy research, trip planning, bike riding... preferably something that isn't conducive to eating (which is why I didn't mention television or reading).


7. Go online window shopping and pick 3 outfits you would like to wear when you get to goal. Print pictures for your fridge or save on a Pinterest board.


8. Speaking of Pinterest... head over and check out the "Health and Fitness" board. If all of those ab photos don't stop the eating, nothing will!


9. Clean out a drawer, cupboard, shelf, or closet. Plan an OP treat for when you have successfully completed the task.


10. Come here to our group and chat! Vent about the craving (or the emotional situation that is causing the craving). Or stop by another thread on your favorite Disboards area and help someone else out.... offer a suggestion for a problem, an idea, etc. Helping someone else always makes us feel better about ourselves.

I love grapes when they are good (or great), but not a fan when they are just so-so. And I find them to be SO expensive, that there are a once-in-a-while treat around here rather than a staple. Plus DH can eat $10 worth of grapes in one night if I leave them in the fruit bowl! Have you tried them frozen? I never have, but people rave about them... especially in the summer. Right now we are big into grapefruit (well, at least DD and I are).
Yea, I'm currently addicted to grapes. We buy 2 big containers from Sams and I go through them in a weeks time.

I woke up this morning and gathered my stuff work work, went to the fridge and MY GRAPES WERE GONE!!!!!!!!!! And someone (DD) took my last banana too! Thankfully I have a couple back up snacks here at work but I'd much rather my grapes than 2 squares of graham crackers. *pout*

I have been stuck for a year now at the same weight but working on changing things up to hopefully get things moving.
Welcome!

I'm not fond of canned fruit, but I keep a few small cans of pears and peaches on hand for "fruit emergencies!" They are okay, especially with cottage cheese or yogurt. I also try to keep frozen berries in on hand for last minute smoothies or for yogurt.
I find that the grapes at Costco aren't any cheaper than the grocery store and the quantity is so huge that I'm afraid we won't eat it all in time! I love Costco, but wish the portions weren't all so huge! That said.... I can eat their double size containers of raspberries in one sitting if I'm not careful!.....P

I would have to say since I started last year on the BL boards, I have become SO MUCH better with exercise! Sometimes it is only once a week, but I am going out and doing something. And if feels so good.

Bonus:

1. Water
2. Clementine
3. Sugar-free jello (black cherry only)

I would add ... drink 2 glasses of water.

Today is my baby's birthday. We had his grandparents up last night for cake. (He has a dance this evening.) His brother in college Skyped in. It was a nice evening .... even though I had 2 pieces of cake .... blah!

Where is everyone today? Things are quiet!

Anyhow.... kids are at music for another few minutes.... then after math we are watching MULAN! Finally, an elementary teacher who understands the importance of watching a Disney movie!

I may have a few minutes to pop on while they are at recess and that will probably be it for the day.

After school I drove DD and a teammate directly to the Y for high school swim practice. Today I will be taking DS along as well. When they are done swimming the teammate and DS are heading to a local arcade place for robotics fun night. I will drop them off there and then hopefully head home with DD. Fingers crossed that DH will be able to head out later and pick them up at the arcade. I would ask them to find a ride with another person, but the weather report for tonight is icy and I don't want them riding with a teen driver.

If DH can't manage the ride for some reason, I guess DD and I will stay in town and maybe grab a bite to eat and do some window shopping at the mall until the kids are done. The arcade is nearly an hour away from home, so going all the way home doesn't really make a great deal of sense.

Last night's crockpot chicken was delicious and I was thrilled to be able to pack up leftovers for lunch today for DD and myself! And I had yesterday's leftover steel cut oats for breakfast today.... I threw in a handful of raisins for a sweet treat!

Off to make a cup of tea before I grab the kids from music! Enjoy your day!.........P

Awww! Jealous! Hope it is a WONDERFUL day for you!

Sweet! She does love that place! She got to do one of the "Behind the Scenes" things there her freshman year and couldn't stop raving about the huge aquarium. She would LOVE to be able to try out her new SCUBA skills there!

Say HI to Mickey for me! Hoping it pans out for me to be able to visit him later this spring with DD! .................P

Hi all!! Not sure if anyone will remember, but I was part of the BL challenge last year. Anyway, at that time I was planning for my family's first ever trip to DLR. Well we made it!! And had the most wonderful week of our lives!! In fact, DBF bad the biggest surprise in store and proposed in front of the castle on our magic morning! Very exciting And here I am needing to lose weight now before the wedding. Hope I can join in, I spent the last 2 days (in my free time anyway) catching up on the thread. I know Rose is at WDW competing the.marathon right now (so exciting!) so I will pm her for when she gets back. Just had a few minutes pop in and say hello, I will come back later to answer some QOTDs!

QOTD: I like to suck on hard mint candy when I have a craving. They are only 15 calories and satisfy my craving for sweets!

Glad you found something that works for you. Unfortunately for me, consuming sugar just makes me crave more sugar! And often it is a salty/crunchy craving I'm trying to kill, so the mints don't always do the job. But gum sometimes helps.

So sorry you have a sick one at home. THere is SO MUCH illness going around right now, it is crazy!! Seems like our school/town had it bad before Christmas and things aren't too bad right now. Hope she is well soon.

**********

We have watched the first 25 minutes of Mulan and the kids are off to recess. Time to heat up my yummy lunch. I won't have a chance to pop on again until at least tonight or tomorrow morning. TTYL..........P

I am here, at least for another 10 minutes anyway. I think DS12 and DS11 have pink eye so we are headed to the dr, again!!!

I'm so sick of that place. Although it is nice being there so often, they fast track us and we get a room ahead of other people. LOL

It's been a rough week all the way around. TOM showed up without any warning other than the cravings for salty and sweet food. I really need to get that under control!! I have eaten way to much this week, it's ridiculously stupid. Need to get working out again too. No excuse either, just pure laziness.

OK OK, enough beating myself up. I'm gonna hit the dreadmill as soon as I get home from the DR!!!

Very exciting And here I am needing to lose weight now before the wedding. Hope I can join in, I spent the last 2 days (in my free time anyway) catching up on the thread. I know Rose is at WDW competing the.marathon right now (so exciting!) so I will pm her for when she gets back. Just had a few minutes pop in and say hello, I will come back later to answer some QOTDs!

Welcome!!!

Popping in here to say HI!

Answer to QOTD...

I am trying to make sure I healthy snacks on hand. Right now I am eating Pistachios. Earlier, it was raisin's. Since we are doing low fat we need to keep up on the protein. DH is recovering from the surgery still and needs the calories + protein.

Last night I made a pork tenderloin which turned out great. Only 1 gram of sat fat per serving.

Sides were Bush's Original Baked beans. 0% sat fat....So happy to find this out. It does have 550mg of sodium but we will take it since it has protein and fiber.

Other side was steamed Yukon Gold Potatoes.

Not sure what tonight's meal is going to be yet.

16yodd is home sick. I got the nurse to fax in a doctor's note to the school. She has had a headache for 5 days straight now, nothing got rid of it. I took her to the ped on Wed. She got a sinus infection leftover from the flu last week.

We started the treadmill today. DH is doing 5 mins for a week and I did 15mins. We will increase dh to 10mins (if he is up for it) and I will go to 30mins next week.

The cardiologist's office said to do this at home so when he does start cardiac rehab then he will not be at "square one".
