SwtDivaHou's Journal, 29 January 2009

I have modified my goal weight to 30lb increments. So once I reach the first plateau of 250, then I'll add the next goal and so on. I have done fairly well on the workouts and have done well on staying within my daily point allotment. The challenges and my buddies have made me more conscious of what I am eating. After all, two of my buddies work with me so if I am going to fuss at them for not adhering to better choices then I should be a winning example. I am working out with my best friend KD (kngilber)and we are going to do the step class. I will see where my hunger is at, but I should be okay with just my smoothie for dinner this evening.

Something funny to share with you moms...my oldest son has a crush on this girl that lives in our neighborhood who looks like Lyndsey Lohan. So, he and his friend (who is her best friend) decide to go over to her house to play playstation. I found all this out from his Daniel's (his friend) little sister. So he comes home and he's all dressed up looking really handsome, it almost brough tears to my eyes because I realized my 13 year old was growing up. I ask him if he had fun at Lyndsey Lohan's house and he says "How did you know I was over there!" I told him that I can see through Walls and can read their minds because they are my children! There are no secrets from me. All mom's have that ability. When our boys are in the game room or my oldest's sons bedroom I can hear them in my closet. He tells his brothers that I told him I can see through walls and read their minds. The youngest (Treon) says no, she can't and the middle one (Larry) is siding with Tre. So they decide to all think the same thing - they will think that they want pizza for dinner and see if I can read their minds.

So I go upstairs and look at them and tell them "okay, we will have a splurge night but I am going to make the pizza, not buy any" You all should have seen the look on their faces! It was priceless. My husband told me I should not deceive them like that but if they think I can see through walls and know what they are thinking, they will think twice before they try something, right? So, I have my children believing I have superpowers and I am enjoying every minute of it. They are still trying to figure out, how I know who they call and text. Gotta love the internet!

Oh my goodness you are so clever! I love that story! I'm not a mom but my sister and I do the same thing to our niece and nephew. We were driving in my car once and my niece (who is 10) was riding shotgun and didn't have her seatbelt on yet. So the seatbelt warning light started beeping, then it started beeping louder and faster. I told her, "If you don't buckle up a big boxing glove is going to come out and punch you in the face!" So she buckled up quick. The next time it happened, she said, "I don't believe a big glove is going to come out and punch me!" And I said, "Oh no? Try it and see." Hahaha!! On a diet note, I think the 30 lbs. increments is a good thing for you. It will make your goals seem much more attainable. When I first started I was about 180 or more. I thought, "There's no way I can lose 50 lbs.!" And look, I'm almost there! You can do it, babe. I know it!

Thanks Plastic!!! I am encouraged especially with the exercise regime I decided to undertake. I work out for about 1 1/2 to 2 hours 4x a week. Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays. If I am doing this consistently, then I should be able to meet my goal fairly quickly.

Your story about your sons IS priceless...that is too funny!! Congrats to you on your exercising! I still am not there, but trying to make the time to get it in. Seems impossible with work, kids and LIFE!!! Plastic is probably right about setting small goals first. I havent done that, but I think I will! I think it does make things look more possible...

So funny!!! Yep, those Mommy powers are great!!!! I told my kids that moms have eyes in the back of their heads so that they can see stuff that they don't think we can see. They have tried a few things to test that, but so far I have seen it. My daughter was up behind me in the chair pulling my hair apart to look for the eyes on the back of my head. I told her they were special eyes that you can't see. LOL!!!
