Tricky calories!!!!

Soooooooooo I was at Sprouts recently and I saw these really yummy looking jalepeno-cheese dinner rolls! I was like, mmmmm..those look sooooo good!!! Buuuuuut I bet they are loaded in calories!!!
Weeeeeelllll I looked and much to my surprise they only had 80 calories in them...I was like WOW...cuz these thing are a good size!!!
Then I glanced at the servings per a package, it said 10!!! I was lke, whhhhhaaaaaaaaaaatttt??? Theres ONLY 4 rolls!!!! Sooooooooo that meant that EACH ROLL was really 2and a half servings...that's sooooooooooo LAME!!!! Annnnnd sooooo TRICKY!!!! Be sure to check the serving size when you check the calories out!!! I know that Ramen noodle soups are like that too...Annnnnnnnnd I mean, WHO doesn't eat THE WHOLE package of noodles??? Okaaaaaaaaaay don't tell me if you don't cuz I'm gonna have to slap you then!!! AHAHAHa!! Jk!!!

Honestly Confessing...

Weeeeeeeeeeeelllllllllllll its been over a year since I blogged on here annnnnd I've been knowing for some time now that I've been wanting to be honest with you all annnnnnnnnnnd the time has come for me to admit to you all that...
.
OUT OF THE 122 pounds I lost,
 I gained back 62 pounds!
Waaaaaaaaaaaahhhhh!!!! :,(((((
The lowest I had gotten down to was 286...annnnnd then  it was up from there and I got all the way back up to 348 pounds...that was a hard number for me to swallow!!! I hate the fact that I wasn't able to successfully stay down. I've been hiding the fact from my blog readers for a while, altho, if you looked at me I'm sure you could tell I had gained back weight!!!
 .
 Thankfully, there are people that care about me and are willing to help me with my struggle. I've been working REALLY hard and have gotten back down to 336...yup 12 pounds down people!!! The reason WHY I am confessing to you all is soooooooooooo that I can be held accountable and CHANGE what I have done. I'm back in the 300's AGAIN...buuuuuuuut I'm NOT STAYING HERE...annnnnnnnnnd I can't wait to tell you all when I'm OUT AGAIN!!!

Thank's God!

Soooooo last night at the gym, as I said in the previous post, I kinda had to give myself a pep talk into going. Buuuuuuuut then even while I was there i'm doing wall ball crouches annnnnnnnd after the first two rounds I was like MAN i'm soooo tired I should just go home!!! Buuuuuuut THEN, I got a text from my friend Lorraine saying that my working out was paying off and that she was really noticing a difference in me at my party and that I was looking good!!! I was like, REALLY??? CuZ honestly, I didn't think I was noticing a difference!!! Soooo I texted her back and said THANKS I really needed to hear that!!! Annnnnnnnnnd I felt motitated to do more and went over and started doing the circuit workout...
.
Then when I was almost done with that, this other lady in the gym that had been doing the treadmill came over to me and motioned for me to take out my ear buds (Put Gordon Mote on hold) and she said that she hadn't been to the gym in about a month or so buuuuuuut when she saw me tonight she noticed such a HUGE difference in me!!! I was like AWWWWW!!! She was like, no really, YOU LOOK AMAZING!!! (She said it NOT me!!!;) She was like, yeah i've always noticed you here (Noticed ME??? Wow...stalker!!! HAHA!!!)  but sometimes its when you don't see someone for awhile that you really notice a difference!!! KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!!! I was like, Oh wow!!! Thank you sooooo much!!!
.
Then when she walked away I was like, MAN GOD, you KNEW JUST WHAT I NEEDED TONIGHT!!! Encouragement makes such a big difference and can be soooo motivation annnnnd last night i really NEEDED IT!!! He knows EXACTLEY WHAT WE NEED!!! Isn't God just sooooooooooo AWESOME LIKE THAT!??!?!
THANKS GOD!!! :)
P.S. Lets ENCOURAGE EACH OTHER IN THE LORD!!!

I am a person that has NO STRUCTURE in myself buuuuuuut absolutely THRIVES within it from others!!! Annnnnnd I NEED accountability!!! Like ONE ON ONE...face to face...EYE TO EYE...LOL!!! Like I really liked the Weight Watchers program annnnd IF you stick to it works GREAT!!! Buuuuut for a person LIKE ME...theres just to many loop holes...HAHA...annnnnnd the group meetins always kinda ANNOYED ME!!! They weren't personalized for ME and what I NEEDED annnnnnnnnd there was always ONE person that like dominated the group thats like FREAKING out cuz its Halloween and there is CANDY and its Christmas theres cookies...yada, yada, yada...LOL
.
Well I was at my mom's and I was talking to her about LOSING WEIGHT and i'm like MOM I really want to do something!!! Like, I do NOT want to be like this, I really, REALLY want to be a healthy person annnnd sooooo my youngest brother Abe was like, well i'm not doing it BUT there is this guy at my work that has lost a lot of weight with Jenny Craig maybe you should find out about that...I was like Oooooo...I've heard they're food is really good to!!!

Soooo the kids are on spring break this week and I had a TON (9) of sessions piled up so I made one for every day this week!!!
.
Sooooo I knew when I saw her that I was gonna get a HUGE lecture!!! Annnnd she was like, OH YES girrrrrl thats right your GOING to get THE SPEECH from me!!! LOL She is like WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN??? Im like Oh jus chillin!!! LOL Then im like, No I"VE been coming to the gym EVERY NIGHT, just NOT whith YOU!!! So she kind of looks at me like, Yeah right...buuuut then she looks at me again and she is like, Well you do look really good! I'm like, oh yea THATS RIGHT WOMAN CHECK ME OUT!!! AHAHAHA!!!
.
So we're doing all of the old excercises and she is like, Whoa you've moved up on EVERYTHING!!! Like she said my planks need to be moved further down and she was moving my weights up higher...she was like ok I can see 30 pounds is like NOTHING for you so she moves it up ten pounds more and when I'm done she was like I can tell that needs to be moved up to 50 pounds...she is like you are sooooo STRONG!!! Then she says, seriousley your strong as ~*&%#@  which i thought was pretty funny!!! Oooo and she knew when the weight was ENOUGH for me cuz she said I couldn't TALK cuz I was concentrating!!! LOL If I could talk she was like, yup, you NEED MORE WEIGHT!!!
.
THen she says, okay lets go do the ball slams! So we're doing them and she is like, okaaaaaay you need the heaviest medicine ball and then when we were done she was like, MARY you play sports don't you?!?! I was like, uh NOOOOOOOOOO!!! She is like, well you are REALLY athletic!!! You just did 40 ball slams and then you just like look up like, Heeeeey!!! No big deal! She says, I have clients that arent as overweight as you and could NOT do what you just did!!! She's like, what that means is that your actually HEALTHY and in really good shape...we JUST gotta get the EXTRA WEIGHT off you!!!
.
Annnnnnd I know she wasn't just saying that cuz she is NOT all flattery like that!!! Sooooo THEN she says, this just means that I'm gonna be making your workouts a lil more intense for you!!! I'm like duuuuuuuuude!!! She's like, THATS RIGHT!!! Soooooooo who knows, maybe by this summer time EVERYONE will be begging for ME to be on their VOLLY BALL TEAM!!! AHAHAHA!!! you NEVER KNOW!!!

My GOAL WEIGHT!!!

Guess WHAT everyone!?!?! I FINALLY found out WHAT my goal weight is!!! I am soooooooo EXCITED!!! Sooooooo i've kinda been stuck in a rut with the whole weight loss thing for a while now!!! I've been working out like BIG time...I mean I FAITHFULLY work out at the gym 5-6 days a week annnnnnd I mean like I really like WORK OUT!!! Like dripping sweat...buuuuuuut I'm just feeling like I NEED extra help with the whole FOOD PART of it all!!! I mean, I really need A LOT of structure AND accountability in my life!!! Soooooooo I went to check out Medifast today...I mean i've heard really great things about them and you meet ONE ON ONE with a dieticitan that counsels you on weight loss, eating right etc!!! Annnnnd I'm like YES...I need this because OBVIOUSLEY I HAVE ISSUES AND NEED HELP!!! AHAHA!!! Okaaaaay they say the first part is admitting and realizing you have a problem and the second part is that you ACTUALLY do something about it!!!
.
Okaaaaaaaay soooo back to my goal weight!!! They asked me WHAT I would like to see myself weighing annnnnnd I thought about it really long and hard...and I honestly thought in my mind that that I would like to weigh 208, because that would mean i've lost 200 pounds since my highest weight!!! Now when MOST people hear 208 they think thats still like A LOT... buuuuuut I don't know...WHENEVER I would read the charts they would say like 165 for my height and for a woman with big bones annnnnd i'm just like OKAAAAAY I weighted 175 in 4th grade....I mean I was TEN and  yes I was chubby...buuuuuut that was a LOOOOOONG TIME AGO!!!
.
Soooooooo they put me on this thing and you hold onto it and it only takes like a minute but it measures your fat, your height, your mucsle mass, and your bone structure annnnnnnd it turns out THAT to be healthy I NEED TO WEIGH...
 205!!!
Soooo I was basically RIGHT ON!!! The lady was like kinda surprised herself cuz thats NOT what most girls would think of as their goal weight!!! Buuuuuuuuut I'm NOT most girls!!! Heh, heh!!! Sooooooooooo she is reading the chart and she is like, OH, you have an abnormally large bone structure...turns out I have a 40% larger skeletal structure than the NORMAL female!!! Go ME!!! (: Buuuuut then again we already knew that if you read THIS POST!!! LOLOLOL!!!
.
Sooooo yes i'll always be a BIG girl...but I'm cool with that...I mean God made me BIG...he coulda made me like my Irish grandma Rita (Mary) Ginty, that I was named after...who was a petite little thing, that STRUGGLED her whole life to keep at 100 pounds ...buuuuut NO he chose to make me with the structure of my Italian grandfather, Joe Mangino, with big bones, broad shoulders, I don't know WHY he chose ME to have that frame buuuuut HE DID...so long as i'm HEALTHY...I'll just rock my big frame!!!
 
OF COURSE...this does mean that I'll have to put aside my life-long dream...
 of being a ballerina...
Buuuuuut I THINK i'll make it!!! AHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! Ooooo annnnnnd I DID decide that I AM gonna do Medifast...I'll let you all know as SOON as its OFFICIAL!!!

How much spagetti???

So I was reading this article by Dr. Oz and he was talking about portion control and how you don't always have to measure everything EXACTLEY!!! He said that you can just use your own measuring devices in case your somewhere that you don't have it with you...HE said for example if you want to measure how much UNcooked spagetti you can have, just see how much you can fit between your thumb and the finger next to it making a circle that closes on the first indention of your thumb...he said that the variation will vary slightly from person to person according to their frame and build...he said thats okay though because you can eat according to your body frame and structure and not talking about your actual body weight but you know your structure size...big bones, little bones, medium bones, extra large bones, petite bones...etc...weeeeeeelllll...
APARENTLY Dr. Oz has NEVER met...
ME!!!
Annnnnnd MY HANDS!!!
 
I decided to try this out myself annnnnnnd managed to fit the WHOLE entire package in my circle!!! AHAHAHAHAHA!!! AND it was NOT a tight fit either!!! LOLOLOLOL!!!
 
 
I could be wrong....buuuuuuuuuuuut something tells me that I shouldn't eat the whole entire package of spagetti!!! BAHAHAHA!!! Ima stick with ACTUAL measuring devices Dr. Oz!!!

Havin Diabetes!!!

Sooooo in my mid-20's I was diagnosed with Diabetes, which totally BUMMMMED me out!!! I mean EVERYONE in my family history has it, like BOTH of my mom's parent's, her mom's dad,  my mom's brother, one of my brother's, my sister, my dad's mom had it,  soooo it was pretty much bound to happen sooner or later...buuuuut I was preferring LATER!!! 
.
However, due to my extreme overweightness, I got my diabetes EARLY!!! At first It wasn't too bad and was being controlled by just oral pills, but since I wasn't losing weight, excercising and changing my eating habits it was getting worse! My sugars were getting higher, sometimes even in the 4 and 500's! My doctor kept increasing my medicine to a higher and higher dosage and she said that if I didn't get it under control my next step would be taking insulin shots!
.
Now, i'm NOT scared of needles...buuuuut I did NOT want to get on insulin...I just DID NOT WANT IT!!! I knew I could get a handle on this if I made up my mind! Weeeeelllll...for the last two years I've kept my diabetes in the low 100's and 90's annnnnd MY FRIENDS, that is WITHOUT taking any kind of medicine at all!!! 
.
Yes, THIS March it will be TWO WHOLE YEARS that I have been off of any sort of medicine for my diabetes!!! I'm sooooo happy annnnnd in a humble way...VERY PROUD OF MYSELF!!! ;) How do I do this? I maintain a very, very low carb diet! I mostly eat meat, cheese and veggies with OF COURSE my occasional splurge days...which I like to do about once a week...usually Sundays or I plan it for a day thats like something fun is going on, or a Holiday and I KNOW its gonna be good food.
.
I'm NOT saying its EASY!!! I LOOOOOOVE CARBS!!! Especially being ITALIAN...I LOOOOOVE MY PASTA!!! PIZZA!!! BREAD!!! CHOCOLATE!!! CAKE!!! DONUTS...LOL...you get the picture...HAHAHA.... Buuuuuuuut I ALSO LIKE LIVING...ya know???

 I'm also REALLY into vitamins...LOL...Two things that I take that help with diabetes sugar levels is cinnamon capsules, which are also "Supposed" to help curb hunger and garlic capsules which are also good for YOUR HEART!!! Buuuuut yeah...my MOM has been my biggest inspiration...she says that things never really clicked for her till recently about her eating habits either, but she says I can learn NOW, while I'm YOUNG!!! 
.
It feels GOOD to me knowing that...
MY DIABETES does NOT control ME!!!
I CONTROL MY DIABETES!!!

Heritage Sadness...

This is the Heritage conference that I went with good self-esteem and LEFT with BAD SELF-ESTEEM! I've ALWAYS thought that I was beautiful...ALWAYS...buuuuuut that all changed in about one minute!!! It was Heritage 2004...eight years ago...I was 21 years old. We were at this youth thing and some guy made fun of me...pretended that the picknik bench I was sitting down at was breaking...the rest of the week...I thought...I'm NOTHING!!!
I specifially remember the last night....wearing this outfit...everyone said I looked sooooo pretty and I PRETENDED to act like I thought I did...buuuuuut I remember looking in the mirror and thinking, YOU LOOK HORRIBLE!!! Your NOTHING BUT A BIG FAT BLOB! No guy will EVER like you!!!
.
It really shook me for a while!!! I have heard people say, if people make fun of you, just change it!!! Thats A LOT easier to say, than to do!!! I can remember the feeling of absolute helpless-hopelessness about my situation!!! I was in the 400's!!! I didn't have 20, 50, 80 or EVEN just 100 pounds to lose...OVER 200 pounds!!! That meant that EVEN if I lost 100 pounds... which in itself seemed a miserable and unconcievable task...I would still have ANOTHER 100 pounds to lose! I couldn't even fathom it!!!
.
I come from a family of OVER WEIGHT people...buuuuuuuut I was the biggest out of EVERYONE!!! Do you know how that feels??? To know that your the fattest of the fattest...It feels HORRIBLE!!! It feels HOPELESS!!!
.
I guess what I'm trying to say is that when you see a really huge fat person, try NOT to make fun of them! You have NO IDEA how your lil comment may effect them!!! I know we're all human and we make mistakes...buuuuut just remember that the fatty that your laughing at is a human too...WITH REAL FEELINGS...JUST LIKE YOU!!! Instead of mocking them...have COMPASSION...you HAVE NO IDEA what they may be feeling inside...pray for them!!! Pray that God will help them and give them the strength to OVERCOME their weakness!!!
.
I'm gonna make it you guys...I'm GONNA DO IT...cuz I know God is gonna help me!!! Thank you everyone!!! Love you all and keep me in your prayers!!! :))))

First Day...

Soooo I joined the gym back in August and have been pretty faithful with it!!! Buuuuuut basically I hav NO CLUE what I'm doing!!! Lololol soooo today I did my FIRST day with a personal!!! I am soooo excited about it! Not only is she going to work with me excercisebut also nutrition as well!!! She also seems super down to earth but really hard core at the same time!!! She was going over my whole routine with me and was like ok, how are you with remembering stuff??? I'm like ummm well considering you just asked me my age annnnd I had to think about it for like 15 seconds... Lol... She was like oh yeah! Ok! Annnnd she wrote down EXACTLEY EVERYTHING I needed to do, how many times and the weight! I was like niiiice!!! She also asked me what my goal was and I said that for right now, my first goal was to weigh 260 and she that she was going to help me get there... Buuuut at the same time she said she just wanted to let me know that she doesn't actually give a $&@&$?!$&@ about my goal... She cares about me being healthy and she said that your weight isn't actually what determines your health. They have this body fat percentage thing and she said me being healthy could end up me weighing less OR MORE than what I think and we're not going to determine my health off of a set chart!!! Soooo yeah... It went well annnnd I'm super excited!!!! :) everyone keep me in your prayers!!!!

Daniel fast!!!!

Sooooooo a group of us are starting the Daniel fast THIS WEDNESDAY, August 1st!!! If anyone is interested in joining feel free...I was going to make an email list for people that want to join and we can support each other and stuff.

The point IS...to cleanse your systen from all the unatural things we put into it ANNNND to draw closer to God!!! (And lose weight too...LOL) This is a way for 21 days to say ok God, i'm just gonna eat the natural things you made and refrain from fillin my body, YOUR TEMPLE, with a buncha junk and chemicals.

Soooo yeah I tried all kinds of cRaZy weird Filipino and Hawaiian food on the trip!!! And am now losing it!!! Once i've relost the weight I gained on the trip(8 pounds) I'm considering doing another round of HCG!!! Its been a while and I would like to get another big chunk of this weight out of the waY!!!

Mary update!!!

Heeeeeeey EVERYONE!!!
Just wanted to give a quick update on my weight loss...YES I am still losing weight!!! I weighed in this morning at 284...I looked at Kim...who weighs 165 pounds LESS than me... and said DON'T BE JEALOUS!!! HAHA!!! 

My diabetes is doing GREAT!!! My blood sugar level in the mornings is usually in the high 80's!!! Normal blood sugar for a person without diabetes is between 70-120...soooooo that means mine is doing GREAT!!! 

Health wise I feel WONDERFUL!!! I rarely ever take naps anymore!!! I just don't hardly feel tired even gettin up at 5:30 am and not going to bed till LATE!!! I mean...I'm not really a mornin person...and I ALWAYS feel tired when I wake up...but as soon as I have my coffee....LOL!!!

Oh yeah...I'm NOT doing the HCG diet anymore!!! Mainly because I had come to a standstill on it and I was gainin MORE weight on the loading days then I was really even losin...Sooooo i was just like YOU KNOW WHAT... I lost like 70 pounds on it...thats GOOD...now I gotta figure somthing else out!!! Weeeeeellllll I'll tell you all what I'm doin on my next post AND I'm sure you all are just dyin to see some more FULL shots of me....RIGHT?!?! LOL  Okaaaaaaaaay its coming...I just gotta take some good ones!!! :) 

Sooooooooo i've lost a grand total of 124 pounds now...YES...I know I'm AWESOME...BUT please go ahead and tell me...I still want to hear the encouragin words!!! ;)

Healthy snacks!!!

Soooo i've determined that I want to develop a lifestyle of eating EVEN healthy snacks. As, in mostly fruits and veggies and occasional VERY low calorie, sugar free snacks. I just want it to become my lifestlye, if I feel like munching on something when i'm not even hungry its gonna be an apple or something like that!!! 
 .
I'm trying to make it a habit that I don't make it a regular occurrence to even eat, healthy-unhealthy snacks...LOL! What I'm talkin about is like nuts or WW snacks and stuff like that because even the these are somewhat healthier snacks...I kinda like tend to not be able to just stop with the serving size...plus most ww snacks are still a lot of carbs and sugar and nuts are high in fat and aren't good for me to go overboard with...AND lets NOT EVEN talk about sugar free chocolate...OMW!!! ITS SOOOOOO GOOD!!! Lol and I still kinda like TOTALLY AND COMPLETELY lose it around CHOCOLATE!!! So I figure I will save these, healthy-unhealthy snacks for when I do feel like indulging every once in a while or whatever!!!

Soooooooo with that thought in mind, I would like to share with you all THE MOST AMAZIN snack everrrr that I just discovered last night from a free sample at Costco!!! (Thank God for Costco samples...Right???

What I discovered IS... 

http://cf.mp-cdn.net/55/16/79d9afed594a17e3902f06e57174.jpg 
Mrs. Mays Freeze dried fruit chips!!! 100% natureal!!! 39 calories! No fatt!!! No sugar but the natural sugar that is already in fruit!!! If you look at the ingredients, the ONLY ingredient is whatever fruit you are eating!!! (i.e. Pears, starwberries or apples) They are soooo GOOOD!!!  I absolutely LOVE THEM!!! 
 .
Mrs. Mays also has freeze dried pineapple and peaches that I would LOVE to try!!! 
http://www.intertradegourmet.com/shop/images/P/70105.jpg
 
Especially the pineapple but I haven't found those ones anywhere yet...if have...let me know where I can buy them!!! :)
 .
They, the apples, pears and strawberries, are at Costco for $12 for a box of 20...NOT the cheapest...BUT...eating healthy NEVERRR is!!! HAHA!!! Then again...Doctor bills, presciptions, buying bigger clothes, diabetes and heart attacks aren't exactly CHEAP either...Know what I'm sayin??? ;)

I'll be letting you know MORE of my favorite HEALTHY snacks in the future....Weeeelll heeeeey if you have a favorite healthy snack let me know...I would LOVE to hear about it!!!

Weight loss size/weight goals...

I thought THIS was an interesting article about dress sizes!!! Particularley this section of the article..."Marilyn Monroe’s dressmaker claimed her measurements were 35”-22”-35” when she posed for(...) in 1953, according to MarilynMonroe.com. Despite the oft-cited anecdote that she was a size 12, she would really be more like a size 2 or a 4 by US standards." I always KNEW she wasn't NO size 14...LOL!!!! (Read the whole article HERE)

AnywayZ, as for myself, I have no dress size goal, no specific weight goal. It doesn't matter what the charts say, what matters is how I FEEL, what the mirror says...and when the time gets closer, but I STILL HAVE A LONG WAYS, i am going to pray about it and aske GOD what is the right weight for me...after all... HE IS THE ONE THAT MADE ME soooo it would make sense to get HIS oppinion on the matter!!! RIGHT?!?!?

So anyone else that has lost weight, HOW did you come up with what was the right weight for YOU???

My outfit!!!

So I bought this skirt sometime in the end of April/early May and when I bought it, it was waaaaaaaay TO SMALL!!!

I wish that I could post a before picture of how the skirt fit me so you all could see just how tight it was...BUT...I'm thinkin that would be inappropriate to post EVEN if it looked really BAD!!! LOL!!! But I felt HOPE for it and determined that it WOULD fit me by Old Time Camp Meeting in June!!!  Sooooo i worked really, really, REALLLLLLY HARD and guess what????

IT FIT!!!
My self esteem was sooo high when I wore this outfit...I mean my hair came out PERFECT and EVERYTHING!!! I told my sis self-esteem was so high in the sky, i'm pretty sure it was ticklin the feet of Jesus on His throne!!! LOL She just gave me that, "you need HELP!" look!!! (Which I happen to get quite often!!!) HAHAHA!!!
Then she asked me if it was high enough to propose to the HOTTEST GUY in Pentecost and I was like, WEELLL... maybe NOT THAT HIGH!!! HAHAHAHAHA!!! But then I rethought about it and I was like welllll...MAYBE it was actually that high...BUT...there is just some things you don't do cuz they are IMPROPER....
NO MATTER HOW GOOD YOU LOOK!!!! ;)
(I wore it again this past Sunday to my church and guess what??? it fit even better...YAAAAAAAY!!! Sooooo if your dyin to see this outfit on me...just wait till Youth Alive!!!:)
