I want to find inspiration! I just don't want the wedding to be a mish mash of chineese and japanese decorations.......

Just venting!

I stayed up the other night just looking for videos on those shows that use to be on TLC or DIY, but I couldn't find some decent ideas for what I was looking for. I couldn't even find any videos on that new show everyone was telling me about, Amazing Cakes.

It's exhausting.....

Help me!

Help me choose a wedding date!

My hubs and I are married civilly, but it has been my dream to have a traditional catholic wedding! So.... I am totally lost on the dates. Originally hubs & I wanted it to be on the same day as our civil wedding date, January 23rd. But the next day it lands on a friday is more than two years away! Then we have July 27th, our first date. And finally September 5th (in 2012 it's on a Friday). Those are the days we were looking at.

Recently I also was thinking about the day my father past away, December 27th (2013 it falls on a Friday). I know that's kinda sad. But that would be the day I would feel closest to my dad and I so wanted him to walk me down the isle and every year on this day we have a party anyways.

Please give me your input!

Speaking of wedding. Along with this "Gaining & Losing" blog... I will be transitioning it to "Losing & Gaining - to-do for the I-do day!" I also need help with a new name. So I will be blogging my wieght loss, my wedding ideas, crafts and everything else wedding. I will be talking about my themed ideas soon.

I will also definitely be needing new readers for additional opinions. Comments, good & bad are welcomed!!!

Once again

I find myself sitting on my @ss not working out. The other day I did play Just Dance, but only for about 15 minutes!! Aaaggh!

I've been trying to park farther away when we go out... but hubs is usually driving and really doesn't like to park far.

I think I'm going to start walking when I take my eldest to kung fu class. I did do that once before but i missed her break her first board! lol Maybe get their early and walk before her class starts?

I got...

I got the new Michael Jackson game for the wii and I played a few times and boy... it's tiring. I've been trying to eat at least one salad a day and doing pretty good. I am a little bit under the weather but still got in a few dances today and we went walking at the mall today as well. I was going to buy new shoes... $14.99 but didn't get to because my mom also wanted new shoes so I decided to get them for her instead, early Christmas present.
I really want to start playing EA Active again... maybe when I get better....

Burn, Baby Burn

I'm a little depressed today.... why? Because my husband said he's depressed.... I'm going to stay home at bog on The Mommy Blog. Then maybe play some Just Dance 2 to lift my spirits. At least I'll burn some calories... oh wait, I haven't even had breakfast yet! :p

Limpy Lettuce

I felt fat again today... I went walking at the outdoor mall, outlet mall and also did some shopping. We went into the leather store and I tried on some beautiful jackets. They were size XL, which I thought was my size. Plus, don't you want jackets to be a bit snug so that you stay warm? Wrong, it was too tight and did not button.... boo hoo. So for dinner I had a grilled chicken salad. Which ended up sucking because the chicken was hot and that made the lettuce hot and limpy! Who likes limpy lettuce?

Starting over...

The title says it all! I am not happy with myself at all. I have not lost any weight at all. I lie in bed, my husband likes to hold me, and I like to hold him to, but I just feel so fat. I know that I haven't done anything to help it, only contribute... I have all the tools and support to start and I'm just ganna start up again and see how it goes. I'll use this blog to vent, maybe share some tips when I get up for it, but not sure how this "leg" will go. I'm going to post a picture, I guess for inspiration?!

Out of the Game

I need help getting back in the game. I was losing steadily, but now I've given up hope. Well, not really, I still do want to lose weight and I know that I can, but I have no support. My grandma always just pokes fun of my weight and hubby lets me eat pizza, so I don't know who else to turn to. The girls at work are kinda helpful, but the other day we all bought pretzels! HELP!

Almost at 180!!

Today I weighed myself after working out on Your Shape and I was at 181!! Wow, the pounds are coming off, but I still feel as bloated!

But another good thing happened... I went clothes shopping and I told the sales associate that I was looking for petite work pants that had a good stretch in them. So she showed me some and said with a sad look on her face...

We only carry up to 14P
I just smiled and said, " That's great, I'm a size 14." I think she knew I wasn't. Those particular pants didn't fit me, but the jeans did! They closed, a bit tight, but they closed! I bought them and hoping that they will fit me a bit more comfy in a few weeks.

..... feeling good

Herbal Life??

I have several people talk to me about their experience with Herbal Life products. Today I went to a demo of some sort at my grandmothers house. As I was listening to the presentation I was thinking in my head about all the "real" food that could do the same things. I honestly thing it's a waste of money. Buying fruit and vegetables from the farmer's market is cheaper.

Has anyone else found Herbal Life to work for them? What I want to know is what doctors think about this and how many doctors go out and recommend or use it themselves. To me it seems just like a diet fad.
