With God All Things Are Possible!

It is of the LORD'S mercies that we are not consumed , because his compassions fail not.
They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness. Lamentations 3:22-23

Back in the saddle again.

  It has been some rough months weight wise.  I would gain ten pounds, get 7 or 8 off, then gain 12 just to lose 5.  Up and down till finally I got so sad it was only up, up and up.  

  I have felt so ashamed and embarrassed.  I know I am not the first person to gain their weight back.  I never went into this thinking, nope, not me.  Never going to gain mine ba...

Say what?

  So my life has been kinda crazy since spring.  I was having some ups and downs I had to get worked out, and hitting goal really played with my mind.  Coming to terms with the final result was hard when I hit goal.  I always pictured when I got here I would be a certain size and look a certain way.  Never pictured the damage done ...

Coming out of hiding!

Posted by mamato2 on July 19, 2011 at 11:40 PM Comments comments (0)

  Yep, when I struggle I hide from my own web page.  I feel ashamed and scared and I want to inspire people not disappoint them, so I hide.  This time has been months.  I wanted to get back into a great row of losses and then update how I was out of the woods and in control.  That is not to be right now.

  What I can update is that I ha...

Life on maintenance :P

Posted by mamato2 on April 15, 2011 at 5:22 PM Comments comments (0)

  So for anyone that finds there way here and is not familiar with maintenance the procedure is you set a goal.  You reach it and celebrate hitting your goal, while at the same time begining 6 weeks of maintenance.  During those six weeks you learn to keep your weight in a 4 pound range of 2 above or 2 below your goal weight.  It does not matter where it falls on thos...

  I feel like I am dreaming! I lost 7.4 pounds yesterday and made it to goal!  I wanted to write this yesterday but I couldn't even get my mind to slow down and stay put long enough.  I am so excited!  I am also scared though.

  People just love to tell me, well this is where the hard part starts.  I am aware of this.  I know they are right.  I know my chances of keep...

Kicking it up!

  So I have been in a blah area!  I think it is this dumb weather and time of year.  I got a couple good size gains from out of no where which always hurts when you are working the prorgam the best you can.  I lost a few back but was still feeling discontent and like I couldn't get full on my point range.

  After going ...

2 Year Anniversary!

Posted by mamato2 on January 30, 2011 at 8:56 AM Comments comments (0)

  Two years ago today I walked through the doors at Weight Watchers, faced the scale for the first time in years and began this daunting journey.  I didn't hold out any more hope that this would be the time than any other time.  I never really thought I could do it, I just thought it was time to put forth some effort in saying I tried.

  When I had done weight watchers before I stuck it out till I l...

It's a new day

Posted by mamato2 on January 22, 2011 at 10:52 AM Comments comments (0)

  That is the WW song that is everywhere now.  It does make me think about my favorite verse that every day is a new day though.  Sometimes when I look back on this journey as a whole it feels not worth it.  It has cost me so much.  It has cost me a lot of money.  A lot of energy.  A lot of time with friends.  A lot of people treating me different. &...

Oh the holidays!

Posted by mamato2 on November 26, 2010 at 4:23 PM Comments comments (0)

  What is it about the holidays that make us so nostalgic?  Memories past?  Family together?  Loved ones that aren't here any longer?  For a girl that borders on the outer edges of sanity when it comes to emotions anyway, it is a hard time of the year to be me.  

  There is the whole "the kids a...
