Hey there, remember me? Well, I'm back! After buying a house with my fiance and moving in, we couldn't afford internet, so I had disappeared for about 5 months or so... and i'm back!

In case you've forgotten, or we have never met...

I'm Corinne, I'm 22, and I'm getting married November 11, 2006.

BTW - my weight is 100% confidential. I'd appreciate it if I know you in "real life" if you wouldn't mention it. I'm really embarassed by it.

I orginally started off at 265 just over 3 years. I'm 5'6. I got down to 185, and I'm now back up to about 225. OUCH! I hit a HUGE wall... and i'm back. I had fallen off, and gotten back on, only to fall off again. Well, hopefully the motivation of my wedding (and my dress not really fitting anymore), and being healthy will be enough to get me back in gear.

The thing is - now that I've felt what it is like to be "thin" (cuz i've NEVER been of 'normal' or 'healthy' weight), it is sooo much worse to go back to being heavy! I cannot believe what terrible shape that I am in. I'm totally disghusted with myself. I do not feel sexy, and do not even like my fiance to see me without clothes on anymore. The clothes that I loved don't fit me anymore. My knees hurt sometimes, and i'm only 22!

I dunno what kind of plan that I want to do. I had a lot of success with WW, but unfortunately, i think that I know it TOOO well, if that makes sense. It's just kind a broken record now, although I know that it works. For you WWers, how do you overcome this?

So, I'm looking for tips and motivations and such. I want to be back to 185 by my wedding in 10 mos.... or at least around there. At 184 I'm no longer "obese."

Sorry, but this will be XPosted like a mof!

Arby's Warning [Thursday
July 21st, 2005 at 3:07pm]

[ mood | aggravated ]

Just to let everyone know....

i thought I was being good. I went out with my sis-in-law shopping and she wanted to go to Arby's for lunch. I decided against fries and settled on their roasted turkey bacon ranch wrap. It was good but not worth it. I came home and looked up the nurtritional information. I thought I had made a healthy choice. that stupid wrap was 16.5 points?! 710 calories, 39 g of fat, 2420 mg of sodium. Guess who will be drinking water for the rest of the day to drive out that salt? Me, that's who. never again. I had never eaten at Arby's before, and I don't think I will again.

maybe happy.... maybe not.... [Monday
June 27th, 2005 at 7:35pm]

Today was weight in.... I only lost 3 pounds :0(

I know some of you would be like "what's wrong with you 3 pounds is great" but I don't see it so great. I kicked my butt this whole week, even my weekend, and I made sure to do my exercise everyday.. and I only lost 3 pounds!? my first week.. Its doesn't make me too happy. I guess I have to try harder this week (as I sit here eating my Wendy's salad) Let see. I also realized that I should go Saturday mornings. Mornings do help because it gets you right when you wake up. So I will make sure not to eat anything. maybe that will work? Another thing.. I got my *monthly friend* yesterday. So I pretty much feel horrible. Im sure that's another reason why I didn't loose much.

I just need some support... Did anyone have a slow start like me?

Oh also, what is everyone's input on step aerobics? I like to do aerobics everyday for 30 mins.. and I completely feel it working, but do you believe it only builds up more muscle? Because I do get a great workout off of it.

[ mood | inspired ]

when i was at my college's course registration night, the dean of students was talking to us about college, and about being able to keep up with the work and the college environment.  something she said really stuck with me, and i hope it will provide some inspiration for us too!

she said, "remember, when life gets you down, you just have to keep up the PACE: Positive Attitude Changes Everything"

so keep up the PACE ladies!

[ mood | chipper ]

i just got back from a nice refreshing walk.  i'm really motivated right now; tonight i went out and bought myself a cute new pair of pink running shorts and a matching top, and now i can pack it with me when i go on vacation on sunday!  i'm going to the beach for a week, and at first i was really afraid to go on vacation.  but i'm bringing my bike, my roller blades, and i'll be able to walk and use my 5lb. dumbells.  plus, i'll be swimming (hopefully the water won't be too cold, it is new england after all!) so the exercise should counteract any unhealthy eating, which i'm going to try my hardest to avoid.  not to say that i need material things to be motivated, but having new work out clothes makes me want to exercise so much more!  it's great going for walks at night too, cause i can just pop in my headphones and jam out when i walk.

today i was browsing through the ww_friends community members, and

gottalose100lbs gave me a great tip as i was reading her journal.  she made a list of realistic goals - how many pounds she wanted to lose and by what date, and what reward she would give herself if she reached her goal.  so today i made a similar list, thoough shorter term, since i want to lose less weight and in a shorter amount of time.  but i've decided that if i lose the amount of weight i want to by august 20th, i will reward myself with a new wardrobe for college.  i think it's easier to lose weight with realistic goals and with rewards to keep looking forward to.  well, i'm off to get a good night's rest...sweet dreams!

Worked Out Like A Fiend! [Monday
June 20th, 2005 at 12:54pm]

[ mood | accomplished ]

Today Monika and I were supposed to go to the gym. Her daughter is sick though, so that did not happen.....which left it up to me to workout by myself at home since I had no way to get to the gym. I went on the gazelle, popped in my ear phones and worked out more than a bit excessively. Time goes by so fast for me when I am not paying attention to the gazelle computer and happily singing along with my fav tunes. I was drenched by the end. The reading on the clock said 117 minutes! That's a hella long time! The most i have ever been on there for is 84 minutes. It also said I burned 1029 calories. I am glad however that I did not do that on an empty stomach and had a protein shake for breakfast. Well, I'm off to go have a salad for lunch! Have a good day!

[ mood | awake ]

Well, hunnies, I ended up signing up to WW once again. Yes, I was doing it before but it didn't work out for me just right, because I was doing it for myself. I did loose 4 pounds but that's really nothing for a month into the plan on and off. Now I feel more encouraged and ready to do this for myself! I know I have to do good for WI and I for myself and my soon to be vacation on the end of July.

Also I need some input? Is it normal to be on a weight loss battle with someone?
Well, let me tell you why I am asking. Me and my cousin are about the same weight. she is older then me I am 20 and she is 25. Well, the point is that we have always been around the same body type. I was always usually much more thinner then her until I met my b/f and I gained about 50 pounds, now looking like her body type much more. So she was always envious of me and she would always try to be better then me. well, ever sense she found out I was in WW she started a diet also and is now loosing weight. I know its a stupid question but I just have this anger in me that makes me want to do better to look better then her. Does anyone else go threw this? or is there something wrong with me? I know I should just do this for myself, and I am. But I also want to leave her in awe.

Before i leave here is a tip i recived in the mail from hungrygirl.com *good to know*
Frozen Entrees Good for Weight Loss

Want to drop a few pounds? Frozen meals can help! A recent study showed that people who chowed down on packaged frozen entrees lost more weight than those who didn't. The reason? Portion control. There's simply less room for error when you're eating pre-made entrees. Want to incorporate some delicious frozen meals into your diet? Try some of the lower fat South Beach Diet meals, Gardenburger Meals, Lean Cuisine's Spa Cuisine, or foods make by a company called Eat-Rite (they're harder to find but sooo good!). Heads up! Some of these meals are very high in sodium so if you're watching your salt intake be careful.

scared to go on vacation [Friday

So...I'm scared to go on vacation. I really don't want to gain any weight. I'm going to a hotel that doesn't have a gym, but apparently has a pool and some walking paths. Anyone have any advice for me? I really need.

[ mood | contemplative ]

We are going out to dinner with friends to Boston Pizza.....I decided to plan my meal out ahead of time so I could work it with my points. I cannot believe how awful BP's stuff is. On their website, the nutritional info is nuts! Hard pressed to have any options that are less that 1200 claories...SICK!
So I have decided on a small spinach salad - 5points and 1 slice of my husband's pep and mushroom pizza -5points. 10 points for dinner isn't bad........if we were not going out with friends, I could have eaten at home for way less and would have more points for the evening. Eating out just is not worth it anymore.

[ mood | calm ]

Well, sadly but surly this community is dying. I know it is. but its all about sharing and caring. I know I haven't been able to do my part. But I will commit myself to get back on track and make this community grow. Any suggestions?

Well, I signed up to the WW magazine and I must say that it is awesome! I have read some interesting things. Now I know that spinach is low in call's and fat but high in folic acid, vitamin A, potassium, magnesium and lutein (which is good for the eyes). I have to try this light meal which I shall share with:

Cook 1 cup of spinach over medium heat in a covered pot with 2 tsp. of vegetable or chicken stock, 1/2 tsp. butter and 1 minced garlic clove. Cook until soft, about 4 minutes. Top with poached egg. Points Value 2 1/2

Good tip: chop cooked spinach and blend into light cream cheese for a spread for crackers or baguette rounds

Also, did you know that a study published in the Journal of Nutrition found that consuming seaweed daily reduces estrogen levels and regulates the menstrual cycle, which could in turn ward off some cancers.

If you like Japanese food try the saeweed salad appetizer ( 1 Point )

Well I hope I came of some help to some. :0) I wish you all luck!!

W.I. Day [Wednesday

[ mood | accomplished ]

I know I really struggled this week. I made a lot of bad choice and worked my points around junkf ood which is awful. I have done 100% better in my choices since Monday. My heart was racing on the way to the WW. I was resolved to think I either gained weight (which I think I would have been mad at myself) or stayed the same. My WW leader is great and she really knows how to have a genuine interest in everyone and keep everyone motivated. I got on the scale, closed my eyes, and she told me I had a 2lb loss....which is wonderful because it was sooo unexpected. SO I am at 13lbs loss. I want to at least get to my 10% by the end of July. I have 10 more pounds to go to conquer my first goal and then we can start the whole process again. It feels great to finally be doing something right with my life for once. :o)

I had such a bad week on WW. I have hosted numerous gatherings at my house over the past week that consisted of food that was not WW friendly at all and I have probably used up all my weekly points and then some. I am sooooo mad at myself. I hate the fact that I know how much I want to lose by the end of July (which is my 10%) and I keep putting myself in difficult situations that I am not yet ready to handle and sabotage the success I am having. I would not be surprised if I gained back 5 lbs of the 11 lost. :o(

Please somebody cheer me up because depression is my worst enemy. My husband keeps trying to tell me it is not physically possibl;e to undo all the success I had in one week.....is it?

[ mood | ecstatic ]

I HIT MY 10%!!!

*dances around insanely* "I DIIID IT! I DIIIID IT!!! I HIT MY TEN PERCEEE-ENT!!!"

Special thanks to everyone for their suggestions yesterday - I felt like I had a lot of strength there with me which was so nice :)

I wasn't as "angelic" as I wanted to be (at the Fenway Park event last night) - I started to go back to a few bad habits (it was INCREDIBLY STRESS-FILLED!! The ppl there were VERY difficult to work with and all the pre-work we had done to ensure the evening went smoothly flew head first right out the window! ACK!) BUT BUT BUT ... I was still better than I would have been a year ago at this time (or even 12 weeks ago for that matter!) so I feel good about myself for that. Plus "before" I would have gotten home and binged again before I went to bed. This time I had literally 2 raspberries, realized I wasn't really hungry and was weighing in about 10 hours later so opted to just go to bed. So, all in all, I still feel like a hero :)
