Where is everyone? -Kim-

I have noticed that out of my little bit of followers only about 4-5 of them are still blogging. I have lost 20 bloggers? REALLY??? I thought being on here was to get support and motivation so you would not have the urge to give up. You would constantly have someone there telling you "you can do it, don't give up this is just a minor set back. You will kick the scales ass next week!" or something like that. I hope everyone is just not blogging and is actually doing well still. I hope nobody gave up or only a couple chose to. I have contacted a few and they have told me they have fell off and will be back. I hope so, especially with one person. She was side by side with me through this and we were always one lb above or behind each other. She tried hard and lost a lot, I hope she didn't lose all of her motivation, all that pushed her forward. She came to far to give up and if you are reading this I am looking forward to seeing you blog again. Do not give up anyone you are strong women and I have faith in all of you.

On another note I got my mom and Brittany to start again :) hopefully Brittany doesn't give up on me again. I know she can do it to. My mom is doing well she is slowly but surly losing weight in her words lol. I think she is doing awesome. She has lost about 20 lbs. I am still here for anyone that needs extra help/support and motivation. I will not be bothered feel free to ask ANYTHING!

I have been lazy lol but staying focused. I have a salad fetish even more than usual now days too. I have had like 4 salads in 2 days lol. Guess what I am having for dinner? Yup another salad. Chef salad mmmm. Oh and if you get a chance try chick-fil-a's southwest chargrilled salad. It is so good. It is 12 points plus for everything but I only use half the dressing so its about 10 pp. I don't care I think it is so worth it. Their salads are so good.

I have cheat weekends now. Not good I try for only one day but it keeps ending up sat. and sun. as cheat days :( Its so good though but I don't lose as much. As always I am not looking forward to Saturdays WI because I completely gorged on a cheese steak and fries on sat. I will take whatever comes to me for that because it was SO WORTH IT!! haha. I haven't had a cheese steak for a good while. I was craving it and I fulfilled that craving. I have always had a cheat day for me but 2 is too many I need to get myself together. I haven't gained in the whole 19 weeks I have been doing this and I don't need to start now. GET IT TOGETHER KIM!!

How has everyone who is still hanging in there doing? Good I hope. Good luck to everyone and keep it up you can do it! TTYL

weigh in 6/18/11

Let me start this off by saying happy fathers day to all the amazing dads out there. A child needs a father as much as they need a mother and I am just glad theres some that choose to stick around for their child's life. I wish my daughters was one of those few. Well anyway HAPPY FATHERS DAY PROUD DADDY'S WE LOVE YOU!

So I weighed in yesterday and lost 1 lb. Yay! I mean I could have done better but I will take it :) I now weigh 169.8 WOW I AM IN THE 160'S!!!! I haven't been there in so long!! Great feeling. I fit in to my clothes I haven't been able to wear for 2 almost 3 years and some of them are even feeling a little to big on me now. I also noticed another true YAY moment for me. I am 19.4 lbs away from my goal weigh. 19 lbs and I will be in a healthy weight range for my height. Amazing! Well all of this will happen in 19 more lbs if I keep it at 150 I might drop to 140 we will see. I have officially lost 42.8 lbs in 19 weeks I believe WOW !  That's great I am ooberly proud of myself. lol. Yes I said ooberly.

On other news I took the little girl to the Washington zoo yesterday with her cousin her uncle and his girlfriend. It was fun but too hot for the poor little animals to want to come outside. I cant believe how much they charge for things either. I paid 4 dollars for a hot dog for my daughter and 3 dollars for a bottle of water for me... this is more expensive than a baseball games prices. And don't even get me started on souvenir's. Awful!.

So how has everyone else been? any good weigh in's? or fun week end excitements?

Did you miss me? -Kim-

I havent been on here to blog much but I have been trying to check up on your blogs. I have noticed it makes no sense to write about something that nobody will read lol. I did however weigh in on saturday and lost .2 lbs so I am still .4 away from losing 40 lbs. I have been having one of those situations where I am always hungry... It stinks. I did go bike riding on sunday with my little girl for an hour and 20 mins. it was fun but little girl was so tuckered out. I actually had to ride laps around her the whole time because her little legs and little bike took forever to get to the point of where I would have been if i continued to keep straight. I think if you calculated that I most likely rode it triple what we rode together lol. I did however get 18 AP's from it :) Not like I use them ever.

Lets see what else have you nice people missed. My sister is expected to delivery in the next 2-3 weeks which would mean I will be riding down to georgia I guess that will be a nice vacation Just hope I can WI somewhere down there and hope my bf doesnt do anything stupid while I am away. See he said he was gonna come with me and now he wants to stay home. I have been cheated on by every other bf so when situations that normal ppl wouldnt think anything of I get worried. Sucks. I mean dont get me wrong I trust him I really do I dont know what my problem is. :( If he was going to he would and I would never know anyway so I dont know why I am stressing it. I really wanted him to come with me though. We could go swimming together and all kinds of stuff it would be like a mini vacation with the love and I would get to see my sister It would be two great things in one. I guess this will be his time to relax and be free of having a gf beside him all the time. Men need a break some times to be a man and women need some time to be women. This will be fine. I will just be missing him for a week+.

So how has everyone else diets been? I have only seen a few updates. I feel a lot of people gave up on blogging everyday, I would everyday I just dont have anything to write about. When school starts again I will be at it strong lol. Once again for all my WW buddies I am online now feel free to find and request me and we can support one another on there too. my username is kimc87.

Well I will ttyl When I have something else to chat about.

Not too exciting -Kim-

So as you all may have noticed I am not blogging. GASP... I know right. I have been actually pretty boring lol. I did get a cleaning job at night 2 hours a day 5 days a week 100 a week. I guess that's ok since its only 10 hours right? So Its been too hot here to do anything to exciting. I just hang out with my little girl and then work at night.
  I think i told everyone that I passed all my classes right? Well my dumb ass of a teacher gave me the wrong grade so now I am waiting for them to fix it. I was like really you gave me a C and I got A's on everything except one test I got a B and one test I completely failed. I should at least get a B and he was like Ooo your right I am sorry. YOU SHOULD BE!! lol j/k. We will see if it is ever posted.
  For more conversation my bf's kids officially hate me for no reason at all. and I mean at all!!! So I can only be there to stay the night now when his kids are not there. His oldest like lives there now so depressingly I will never see my bf now. Sucks! Especially when your used to seeing someone almost every day. I have stayed at his house at least 5 days or more a week for the past 3 years and now I will only see him if I am lucky twice. UGH!! I'm gonna be a lonely sad Kim. I would just love to know why they hate me so much or most of all why 3 years later is this going to come out? What have I done to them? I try to help them when they are going to get in trouble, I try to give them rides, food etc. Idk I think someone is pumping their heads with BS about me or something because I have done nothing but good to and for them.
  Other than that I have completely indulged for the past 3 days... I feel disgusting! I think I probably gained too which is depressing but hey I had fun. I will just have to step my game up to lose them extra lbs. I cant even be sad or mad about it because I knew exactly what I was doing and even thought twice about it but said eh what the hell... Which then brings me here. Feeling disgusting, fatter, and stupid. O well!!
So how has everyone else been? Hope all has been good. I will blog again when I am not so boring LoL
