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!!!:)

Soooo here are all my little goals till I get there...

1. 295

4. 275
5. 269
6. 265 (100 pounds since Jan 2011)

Here are some of my non-scale goals
1. to fit into this pink Jacket

Its a Nine West I got at Goodwill for $6 bucks!!! Size 1x NON-stretchy material!!!

2. for THIS jeans skirt to be comepletely TO BIG FOR ME!!!

See HOW TIGHT this skirt was on me when I first fit into it??? Well its PRETTY LOOSE NOW!!! But NOT to big!!! As adorable and cute as I think this skirt is...I WANT IT TO BE TO BIG!!! :)))
3. I want the size 26/28 to be ALWAYS to big for me!!! It pretty much is like waaaay to big for me on my shirts but not on my skirts!!!


4. To be able to cross my legs like THIS!!!


5. For my collar bone to show
6. To NOT have to ask for a seatbelt extension an the air plane!!!

Once again, I am NOT sure of what my final, grand finale goal is!!! It may be 208, it may be 175 or somewhere in between or even less or more!!! I HONESTLEY DO NOT KNOW!!! I have NEVER in all my life been thin!!! The last time I weighed in the 100's was in 4th grade, I weighed 175!!! By 5th grade I was in the 200's and it just kept gettin higher and higher and higher!!! I do know that I am a VERY big person in general not even just talkin about FAT!!!

    Walking again!!!

    I went out walking again with the little boy I take care of!!! I walked all the way from my house to the Mountain View reserve...one of these days i'm actually gonna hike the mountain, i've done it like half way before but I didn't see me doing it with a little boy in a stroller!!! HAHA!!!

    While I was walking along the road I saw a mamma quail and all her lil babies crossing the road in a line...they were sooooo CUTE!!! See thats the cool thing about walking and excercising outdoors, you get to see all kinds of interesting things like, rabbits, lizzards, flowers, RATTLESNAKES...you know, interestin stuff...haha!!!

    Monday, May 9, 2011

    The dreaded word!!!

    EXCERCISE!!! LOL! I went out and walked for a while today!!! I had decided yesturday that TODAY I was gonna start excercising...Soooo I had the stroller ALL READY and was about to put Levi, the little boy I take care of in and head out when i as reminded that my nephew Jose was also coming over today.

    I was like AWWW MAN!!! (Not that I didn't want him to come over, (he is ALWAYS welcomed)i just didn't know HOW I could go on a walk with two little boys and only a one seater stroller) Soooo then I remembered that we had a little red wagon that I could put the boys in. So I buckled them in and they loved it!!! Well I mean who wouldn't love being pulled around in a little red wagon??? I KNOW I sure would!!! ;)

    Anywayz, I'm not sure how far I walked, but it was probabley like a mile or something...It was to this mountain that has a hiking trail by my house. Its a good little wayz a way...I've hiked it a little bit before but obviousley NOT this time!!! LOL It was difficult enough back then when I had been walkin for a while, I could only imagine it pullin the little red wagon...HAHA!!!

    Sooo it was nice...I think tomorrow it will be waaaaaaaaay easier without pulling the wagon!!! Soooo excercise...HERE I COME!!! Watchout peeps...pretty soon i'll be running and biking with Sis. Kathy!!! :)))

    Only One Pound
    Hello, do you know me?
    If you don't, you should. I'm a pound of fat,
    And I'm the HAPPIEST pound of fat that you would ever want to meet.
    Want to know why?
    It's because no one ever wants to lose me;
    I'm ONLY ONE POUND, just a pound!
    Everyone wants to lose three pounds, five pounds, or fifteen pounds, but never only one.
    So I just stick around and happily keep you fat.
    Then I add to myself, ever so slyly, so that you never seem to notice it.
    That is, until I've grown to ten, twenty, thirty or even more pounds in weight.
    Yes, it's fun being ONLY ONE POUND OF FAT, left to do as I please.
    So, when you weigh in, keep right on saying, "Oh, I only lost one pound."
    For you see, if you do this, you'll encourage others to keep me around because they'll think I'm not worth losing.
    And, I love being around you - your arms, your legs, your chin, your hips and every part of you.
    Happy Days!!!
    After all, I'm ONLY ONE POUND OF FAT!!!

    MILESTONE!!!!

    Sooooooo today is a HUGE day in my life!!! SERIOUSLEY HUGE!!! I have OFFICIALLY lost 100 pounds of FAT!!! LOLOL!!! OMW!!! I am sooooooo EXCITED and HAPPY!!! My heart is just jubilant!!! (Is that even a word???)

    Sooo i've lost 100 pounds but its NOT since I started the HCG diet(7 weeks ago)...The HCG diet i've lost 45 pounds, since the beginning of the year I've lost 57 pounds and since my highest weight (408) I've lost 100 pounds!!!...which is a HUGE deal for me!!!AND OMW!!! I can't stop lookin in the mirror...Which is REALLY NOTHING NEW...BUT...LOL!

    I weighed in at 308 this morning!!! :)))


    About 5-6 years ago I weighed in at 408 pounds. Its THE HIGHGEST I have ever weighed and as far as I could see it was a hopeless, endless case. Then without realizing it, towards the end of 2007 I began to lose weight. Probabley because I had become diabetic and didn't realize it and when your sugar is high you lose weight. So I was surprised that I had lost weight, but people had started noticing, sooooooo in 2008 I decided to REALLLY try losing weight and through Atkins and Weight Watchers I managed to get down to 326 at my absolute lowest.

    Welll...it took me till the end of 2008 to get there, then in 2009 It kinda started going downhill from there. I couldn't seem to get past 326 and before I knew it the pounds started coming back on till OMW I was at 365 again, which is where I was at the begining of this year, WCC, Conqueror's Conference...I was sooooooo MAD and Frustrated with myself...BUT at least I had NOT gained back ALL MY WEIGHT!!!

    So I lost like ten pounds in the first three months of this year. Then I started hearing about the HCG diet and I was like Hmmmm...should I??? I mean its like a REALLY INTENSE diet!!! LOL But with the help and encouragement of some other Apostolics I got the push and support I needed to start. AND on March 17th of this year, I started the HCG diet weighing in at 353!!!

    This morning I STEPPED on the scale and it said 308!!! I could NOT believe it!!! 308!!! NOT 309! NOT 307!!! 308!!! EXACTLEY 100 pounds!!! It was a BEAUTIFUL sight to see!!! Seriousley, I could have KISSED the scale!!! Do you know what it feels like to have lost 100 pounds???? It feels AWESOME!!! I mean, I'm not gonna like, I'm pretty proud of myself!!!
    *************************************************
    (This is me TODAY!!! I thought what pic should I have my 100 pound loss taken in?!?! I should I wear something black cuz its more slenderizing??? NO WAY!!! Cookie monster ALL THE WAY BABY!!! :)
    408, 308...
    Who's ready to...
     see me at 208???

    Phase 3!!!

    Soooo I am doing good so far on phase 3 of this diet!!! I started on Wednesday eating more food and I thought for SURE on Thursday I would have gained a pound but NOPE, sure enough when I got on the scale and weighed myself it was still 315!!! So I guess even though it seemed like MORE food it wasn't really that much the goal is keep it at 315 for three weeks without gaining although I may still lose some weight on this phase...

    Soooo this is me this past Sunday at 315, the weight I am supposed to stabilize until May 25th. HOWEVER, I did ACTUALLY lose four more pounds yesturday!!! I weighed in today at 311...BUT I was soooooo SICK with the stomach flu that I think that is the REASON for that weight loss so I so don't know if its a REAL weight loss or not I guess I'll just have to wait and see!!! CUZ MAN was I SICK yesturday!!! Ugh!!!

    Well..HOPEFULLY this was a true weight loss cuz if it is do you know what that means?!?!? YUP!!! Only 3 more pounds to go until I have reached my next little goal, THEN my next little goal will have brought me to MY FIRST BIG GOAL!!! (Read about my goals HERE!!!) Keep prayin folks!!!

    ALSO check out my friend Priscilla Hildalgo's weight bloss blog as well...she is doing Atkins, leave her an encouraging word!!! :))) Check her out HERE

    I have had this shirt for over three years!!!! I got it right before my brother got married in the PI three years ago. It has NEVER looked good on me...BUT I LOVED THE SHIRT!!! I could NEVER get rid of it cuz I just knew that if I EVER lost the weight it would look AWESOME!!! Welll...that just wasn't happening!!! I wore it a few times but my brothers told me I looked PREGNANT!!! HAHA!!! AnywayZ, I thought last wednesday like, HEEEEY I should just try that shirt on and VIOLA...It fit PERFECT!!!


    Jac said I looked SKINNY!!! I was like ummmm WOW!!! Thank you...I mean I'm NOT!!! Still weighing in at 315, well actually last week when I got this pic it was like 318...but ANYWAYZ...this was another YAY MOMENT FOR ME!!! :)))

Well phase 3 won't start until Thursday of this week. First you have to do 3 days of the 500 calorie diet without the HCG, so I did the first day today and YEAH you totally feel HUNGRY without the meds!!! Soooo Thursday is my big day...I'm gonna do some studying on what all I should be eatin durin this phase and find some good recipes and try to come up with some plans!!! Keep prayin for me FOLKS!!!

    BUMMMMMED!!!!!!!!

    Soooooooo I decided this past Sunday that since it was EASTER and we were all cookin and stuff that I was gonna go off for just that one day...I had totallly planned it. WELLLL...that was like the BIGGEST mistake EVER!!!

    First of all, let me tell you all about a few things I learned going off my diet EVEN before I realized what a mistake it was... 1. I could see right away that I had already changed the way I look at food...its weird...hard to explain...but it was just DIFFERENT!!! 2. Nothing seemed as good when I tasted it as it did when I actually saw other people eating it and was resisting it...with the exception of Dove Chocolate AND MOUNTAIN DEW...those two things were JUST AS GLORIOUS as I remember!!! HAHAHA!!!

    ANYWAYZ, I had figured I would gain like 2-3 pounds which was NOT cool but not a huge deal right?!?! WRONG!!! My brothers, both gained two pounds and EVERYONE ELSE that I have talked to that is on the HCG diet that went off for Easter gained like two pounds... Guess how much I gained???

    SEVEN POUNDS!!! SEVEN POUNDS!!! I was SHOCKED!!! I got on the scale Sunday morning and weighed 317...THEN I got on the scale Monday morning and weighed 324!!! Talk about a TOTAL HEART BREAK!!! Needless to say I learned my lesson and I am NEVER cheating again...NOT even for my birthday!!! I mean what's the point?!?! It took me like TWO weeks to lose that seven pounds and I gained it all back in ONE DAY!!!

    So even though I messed up BIG TIME, I think in a way it was good for me to learn this lesson. I also know that because it was such a high gain I will NOT be  tempted to do this again...had it ONLY been two pounds it would not be a big deal. I can't tell the difference that I have gained any weight, my clothes aren't any tighter, of course ALL my clothes are too big for me now anywayZ so I guess I wouldn't even be able to tell!!!
    Even though I was, AND STILL am pretty bummed, I have NOT given up. I told myself to stop having a pity party and just get back up and keep going!!! Sooooo I'm back on track... I weighed in this morning and had lost ONE of the pounds soooo thats good...6 more to go!!!

    Well, I REALLY hated writing this blog post...It would be soooo much easier and funner NOT tellin you all about this HORROR...BUT I figured I should be HONEST!!! Cheaters NEVER win and you can't help a LIAR!!! (Plus they go to HELL!!!)

    Soooooooo have any of you out there ever heard of WALDEN FARM products??? They sell all kinds of dips, salad dressings, sauces, syrups, jams that are all FAT FREE, SUGAR FREE AND CALORIE FREE!!! Which just kinda seems a little FREAKY to me!!! LOL!!!!

    Soooo here is a little update on my weight loss!!! I have now lost 32 pounds!!! I'm weighing in at 321. I'm fitting into my sisters clothes now. I havn't lost any weight the last two days BUT I did a check with ketosis(Ketosis means fat burning mode) strips and my body is still in the HIGH fat burning mode...soooo I guess I really am still losing inches...I just had to go out and buy the strips to see for myself!!! Thats the kind of person I am...i just WANNA KNOW!!! :) Also, I havn't taken any diabetes medicine in at least two weeks and my sugar has been mostly in the high 80's -90's!!! SOOO AWESOME!!!

When my sis came home from work and saw the skirt on me she said that she could REALLY tell that I had lost weight!!! AND like, I guess wearin it was an eye opener for me...cuz to me when I look in the mirror I just look the same!!! BUT when I put on those skirts I was like...OH YES...ITS OFFICIAL...

    I'M SHRINKING!!! :)

    Hmmm....

    I find it VERY intersting that people will hear that I'm on a 500 calorie diet and they like FREAK OUT!!! Is that safe??? Are you sure? Don't you think you should be eating more? Doesn't your body NEED more? But know one worries like that about eating a Whopper or Big Mac...I'm just like HMMM....


    The other thing I find VERY interesting is the question I get asked when tell about this diet...

    IS IT HEALTHY???

    Is it healthy losing weight soooo quickley??? My answer to that question is this...Is it HEALTHY being MORBIDLY OBESE??? Hmmm...Idk...I could be wrong BUT I'm pretty sure that losing weight is bether than weight 408...

    Idk...its just a THOUGHT...I could be wrong!!! ;) Hmmm...

    AMEN!!!

    WOOOOOHOOOOO!!!!

    I've lost 30 pounds now!!!!! YES!!! I'm totally siked!!! So I read online something you can do to get out of a stall if you are stalling. You have a mug cake and steak day. You eat a 3.5 oz steak for lunch, 3.5 oz steak for dinner and have a mug cake for dessert...doing this isn't in the HCG protocol BUT it totally works if your stalling...and WAAAAAAAY better than an APPLE DAY...ugh...LOL!!! Another way to break a STALL in weight loss is to TOTALLY go off the diet and then back on but when you do that you gain a few pounds and then the weight loss continues steadily again...at least thats what people are saying...I STILL HAVN'T CHEATED!!!! Yay ME!!!

    Two more weeks then I have to take a 3 week break without the HCG to stabilize my weight loss. During this time I stick to a very low carb diet, i guess kind of like what i'm doing right now I can just have more calories. Alot of people still lose some weight during this time so HOPEFULLY I am one of those people!!! :)))

    Apple day!!!

    Today is an apple day. I weighed in this morning EXACTLEY the same as yesturday...sooo that means I have to do an apple day. What I have to do is take the HCG medicine and starting from lunch time today to lunch time tomorrow i'm supposed to eat 6 apples...SUPPOSIVLEY this is suppoesed to work and start up the weight loss again...we shall see...they told me to call them back in two days and they'll tell me what to do next...I was hoping they would say Spinatos would reset my system...LOL!!!

    AnywayZ, I decided to make this a somewhat interesting endeavor, soooo last night at Sprouts I picked out 6 different kinds of apples to eat. A fugi, a Pink lady, a pinova,a red delicious, a braeburn and a granny smith...I'll let you all know which one is my favorite!!!
    My ALL time favorite is the HONEY CRISP APPLE!!!
    OMW!!! These apples are SOOOOO good!!! I LOVE them!!!
    They are like Juicy and sweet and just the right about of CRISP!!! ABSOLUTE PERFECTION!!!

    However, they are also quite pricey and also out of season...soooo sad!!! I discovered them when I first started this diet. The produce man at Fry's said this was the LAST batch they were getting in and asked me if I wanted a sample...ONE SAMPLE and i have been HOOKED ever since!!! I didn't even realize the price and I got a bagful and was shocked when they told me my total was $19.99!!! I was like WHAT??? HOW MUCH ARE THESE APPLES!?!?! LOL Soooo I only got two!!! If I had that kinda money to spend I TOTALLY would have...HAHA!!! AnywayZ, you all have GOTTA taste HONEY CRISP APPLES!!!

    Whats YOUR favorite kind of apple?!?!?

    Thursday, April 7, 2011

    Grrrrrr....

    WEEEEEELLLLLLLL i've been stuck on 329 since SUNDAY!!! Ugh!!! Thats VERY frustrating!!! I called up the diet place and they said this is NORMAL to stall for 4-5 days....I'm like NOOOO!!! BUT I'm TOTALLY hanging on!!! NOT CHEATING AT ALL!!!! :)

    On the brighter side, my blood sugar was down to 96 today... without medicine...THATS AWESOME!!! I was ranging in like the 300's maybe even 400's before I started this diet. A normal person's sugar is like 70-120!!!! My mom told me I shouldn't even take my medicine if its that low!!! Soooo yeah...i'm doing BOMB...totally gonna reverse this type 2 Diabetes!!! :)

    Also...sooooo I found ANOTHER shirt that totally fits me!!! I had forgotten ALL ABOUT IT!! I found it at Savers like a year or so ago but it just didn't fit right...to tight and I hung onto it for a while BUT then I donated it to our church's Blessing Boutique. Well the other day I was in there going through some stuff with another one of ther girls from my church and I was like..HEEEEEEY I WONDER if this shirt will fit now...

    AND IT FIT!!!
    SoRRY I couldn't get MORE in the pic its HARD to do full body shots yourself!!!
    BUT wait CHECK OUT the sleeves...

    Soooooooooo CUTE!!! Soooooo yeah...I took it RIGHT back outta the blessing boutique!!! I know we're supposed to put stuff in to be a blessing to others BUT heeeeey... I was a blessing to MYSELF by losing weight!!! :)))
