Introduce myself ...

In my last post, I mentioned that I'll post a new one to tell you a little about myself since I realized that I didn't post about myself in my first post so here ya go :-)

My name is Amy. I'm 32 year old. I married to a wonderful man - Adam. I have two boys age 11 and 10 from my previous relationship and two step children, a girl age 8 and a boy age 9 living with us too... yep so handful but not that hard :-) I am a stay at home mom. I get my breaks from them while they go to school. I'm hearing impaired like a deaf. I could read lip pretty good so you'd probably be thinking "oh that makes sense of why all of her posts grammar aren't that exactly making a sense" I tried my best to write a good grammar to make sure you all understands what I'm saying.

Our 4 children could hear and knows sign language. :-) My husband is also a deaf too. He works full time as a tire - oil changer.

I have tried to lose my weights in past few times but always fall off the wagon every time bec I wasn't too commitment to this. I kept gave up bec I didn't had good supports from anyone back then but now I think I do have a good supports from my facebook friends :-)

I started my weight journey again last Thursday April 22nd.. as I have mentioned in one of my previous posts that I sneaked in and have lost 3lbs. I haven't weighted myself again and won't weight myself until this Saturday morning. I hope I'll see more pounds going down on Saturday!

I'm following the weight watchers plan. They are so easier to keep track etc especially if your doing online.. that's what I'm doing this. My target points now is 39... so for the past few days, I have stayed below and up to this points and haven't went over on this :-) I think weight watchers is so easy to manage.. they aren't like diet.. its like you can eat almost anything you like but make sure your doing in a right portion serving size and that you haven't went over your points target then you should be fine as long as you do exercises

I'm starting out with walking plans for now .. and have printed out the walking challenge from my weight watchers online.. I started with 1/2 mile in 10 mins yesterday and today I did 3/4 mile in 13 mins... but I know I did walked alot yesterday more than what it said on the paper bec I went to stores etc yesterday...

Today I did walked pretty good .. I parked in a parking lot far from store today :-) I think it'll do me good :-)

I have been carrying water bottles with me to anywhere just trying to make this as a new habit to stick with water :-)

I have been on water for 5 days now.... no sodas! GOOD FOR ME! I'm feeling more better and better and a little energy increases since.. it just kept me to do something around in my house etc :-) When I was on alot of sodas, I didn't felt any energy that much none.. but now on water for 5 days and I have felt better and little more energy lately like it would increase a little more and more everyday... wow looking at how much I have missed alot of my times in past while wasting on sodas! I'm feeling more confidence that I can do this and don't give up!

I'd appreciate if my facebook friends keep supports by leaving me wonderful words , those words does keep me going and going! Thank you Facebook Friends!

Ok to the meals I have ate today...

Breakfast : I had a whole wheat breads with a egg as an sandwich and a coffee

Lunch : I had a lean cusine spaghetti with meat sauce, They are so GOOD! only 6 points! You should try this if you haven't tried this.

Dinner : I had a lean cusine spaghetti with meat sauce again along with a whole wheat bread and a slice of turkey in it all for just 9 points! Not bad...

I did had snacks between my meals, I had a banana then in afternoon, I had a cup of strawberries, Fruits are SOO GOOD.. They are better snacks than junk snacks!

So for tonight snack which will be in a hour from now, I'm gonna have strawberries again, love them!! probably mix them up with slices of apples :-)

I have been drinking total of 58oz of water today and as currently am still drinking more water :-)

Tomorrow, I'm gonna walk for 15 mins but I might will do more than that bec I'm going somewhere again tomorrow.

I guess that's it for tonight.. :-)

If you drink too much sodas or have been doing this everyday , all day.. you should think about quit or reduce it alot better bec I was on sodas all the time, all day nothing else.. yep that's true.. so I quit on the sodas last Thursday.. put myself on water alot, I did experienced irritables, nervous, restless , headaches and sometimes feels dizzy a bit bec I was going through withdrawal of caffeine, they aren't fun to go through this!! I'm doing alot better now, been on water for 4 days now , but still experiences the headaches and nervous a bit.. but when I feel nervous, I just grab a fruit, it did helped for this nervous to go away. I can't wait for this experience of withdrawal to go away, hopefully in few days...

I had to keep myself busy and busy cleaning alot in my house than I normally did and I felt good about this then I went to grocery store to shop for few healthy foods then famly dollar to pick few things then went to the post office to check for my mails then went to school to pick my kids up.. it seems like I have walked alot pretty good and drank alot of water.

I had a egg with wheat breads as sandwich for breakfast and had a coffee but no sugar in it then for lunch, I had a ham with wheat breads as sandwich and water also a banana too so for dinner, not sure yet.. probably lean cusinie spaghetti, I love this Lean Cusinie Spaghetti, they are soo GOOD! along with salad and water.

I guess that's all for now.. I better start the dinner.

I think I should post new one tonight to introduce myself, tell you a little about me, myself and I. I realized I didn't do this in my first new post! So sorry about this.

Today is Sunday! So pretty outside!! The weatherman mentioned that it'll be hails and tornado today but so far I don't see this kind of weather yet.. so pretty outside.. hope this will stay that way for rest of day.

I am not supposed to weight myself until Saturday but I sneaked this morning to weight myself.. I have lost 3lbs already!!! Water is working!!! :-D Not only this water, I did eat in right serving portion sizes etc.. I guess those does help too!

For Breakfast I had 3 cups of coffee and a bowl of oatmeal.

I haven't decided on what to eat for lunch and dinner and snacks yet..

Here's what I have ate today so far...

Breakfast - Leftover chicken salad sandwich and a banana and about 3 cups of Coffee.

Lunch - Lean Cusine - Spaghetti with meat sauce

Snack - Banana and Chex mix trails (1/2 cup)

Dinner - Healthy Choice - Chicken with Alfredo Sauce (it has broccoli in them), a wheat sandwich with a tuna inside.

I'm not sure what my snack for night will be yet..

I have drank alot of waters!!! Have made to 64oz today!

I went outside and helped my husband by mowed the yard .. I did about a half of acre then he did rest of them. My legs felt sore, I guess due to myself haven't been walked too LONG like mowed the half acre of yard.... but I'm glad I did it today.

Weather out here looks so windy and rain should be here soon, Storm should be coming up here.. we were supposed to have hails and possible of tornados tomorrow so hopefully those won't be that bad ....

Well, I guess that's all I can think of to say for now.


It seems so hard going through this as withdrawal from SODAS !! I got to STICK to WATER.. no going back to SODAS.. I hope the withdrawal feeling will be gone soon!

I didn't had a good sleep last night bec I had to wake up 3 times overnight just to go to the bathroom to pee due to drank alot of water.

That's worse than when you been on sodas you don't wake up that often overnights but now with water, you will.. I guess bec it's cleaning me out??

I'm drinking my coffee now in hoping this will wake me up WIDE! so that I can get things done around here and if weather is all good, gonna take my kiddos out to the park! :-)

I had leftover chicken sandwich for breakfast bec it has protein plus fiber in bread ..also had one med banana all for breakfast just to fill me up til lunch time.. After I'm done with my coffee, gonna stay on drinking water and water :-)

I keep thinking, Amy, you are doing great, you are going to lose your weight! Great job, Amy!!! It's all I'm trying to think in myself.. I can do it!

I guess that's all to say for now...

Good Morning!

I wonder what's the best time to go out for a walk ?? before or after Breakfast?? or at anytime ??

Walking is gonna be my first exercise to start off ... I did walked around outside yesterday but that was after Lunch so I'm not sure if that's good??

I'd appreciate for your tips if you can leave me a comment below here :-)

The Weatherman on TV said it is possible to have some rains and storm out here so I'm not sure if I'll be able to take my kiddos out to the park today.. so wait and see how the weather is gonna be today.

Have a good day!

GOOD NEWS - I have drank total of 64 oz water all day nothing other kind of beverages! Just WATER! The only thing that drives me nut is visiting my bathroom so often than I used to bec of WATER! :-D

I have ate pretty good today.. For Breakfast, I had one serving of omelet and a coffee with a little milk, sugar and a bit of cream (fat free).

I did had 3 cups of Coffee..must have them but I'm trying not to drink so much of this Coffee.

For Lunch, I had a turkey with wheat bread, Sandwich

For Snack, I had 1/2 cup of Chex mix trails

For Dinner, I had a chicken salad sandwich (with wheat breads)

For snack after dinner, I had one medium banana...

I drank alot of water all day.

I did walked around .. I'd say about 1/2 mile around outside. I walked for like 10 mins.. I'm trying to follow the walking challenge I found on Weight Watchers that they have for starter....

I'm trying to think good positive.. think all about how I want to go back and be thin again like I used to be way before I had kids.. I'd love to have this healthy and shape again.. I'd love to be more active and be able to do alot of things with my children and future grandchildren.

Tomorrow, if the weather is good, I'm gonna take my kiddos out to the park, that way I have something to walk around more up there :-)

I hope I'd have more friends out here to leave me a comment, even just to say Awesome or whatever.. It'd make me feel like I can keep going and going .. I'd appreciate for this.

I'm an AVON rep.. so good thing that I'm this rep bec I can walk out and handle the brochures out etc.. something else to do to keep me walk and walk around :-) I'll try take easy on myself , not pushing myself so hard :-)

I guess that's it for now.. so Have a good Night. I'll try update more sometimes this weekend or on Monday.
