Before After

It's been awhile....

I've had a lot of things going on lately and haven't really had time to do anything with my blog.  My husband and I recently had his son, move in with us.  I never imagined how much work a 9 year old could be, but it's been fun.  I've been trying to keep up on the exercising and eating right, and I'm also trying to get my step son and husband in on it too.  So far, so good.  My step son has been resisting a little but he really doesn't have a choice, the only kind of snacks I bring into the house are jello and fruit.  He'll thank me someday.
I just wanted to check in and see how everyone is doing.  Good luck on your journey's!!


3 more pounds gone.  I even cheated a little and I still managed to lose!  Thank God for this nice weather and my determination to jog or I probably would've gained over the past couple of days. 
I love seeing the number go down on the scale, really makes me want to go jogging right now and make the number even lower.  I just have such a feeling of accomplishment right now, I think I've lost about 10 pounds in the 2 weeks I've been a member of this site. 
I should probably get to sleep now, I just wanted to share my joy.  I hope everyone else is doing amazingly on their journey's as well!


I stepped on the scale this morning and it turns out I haven't gained or lost a single pound in like 4 days.   I guess that's not such a bad thing, at least I haven't gained :)
I didn't really have a chance to exercise this weekend, it was my long weekend at work, 8am-10pm Sat and Sun, so all I really had time to do was come home and pass out.  I can't wait until after Tuesday, my days off start and then I can work on my routine again.
I've been doing a pretty good job of staying away from the crap food, and not eating so much.  Hopefully I can continue with that.
I had a waffle and a bowl of cereal for breakfast. 
Hopefully I can do good for the rest of the day...pray for me!

Another pound down

I've decided that I'm only going to weigh myself every two days, I'm not sure if this'll make a difference I just hate doing it everyday. 
Yesterday I went for a walk/jog for 2 hours.  It was amazing.  I love being time I'll have to refrain from wearing a sweatshirt so I can actually get a tan lol. 
Today I have to work so I might have to wait to walk til tonight.  Hopefully I can talk my husband into going with me, but I doubt it.  He was so supportive of my diet and actually did it with me when i was in WW, but I think he has lost faith in the whole diet/exercise thing.  Hopefully my weight loss will get him back into it. 
For lunch yesterday I had 2 hot dogs with onions and ketchup, no bun, and for dinner I had 2 pieces of pepperoni pizza.  I know, I know, pizza is no bueno but I'm trying to slowly wein myself off of the junk or I'll just binge out one day.  It seems to be working ok so far.
I just decided that I'm going to try to take a quick walk before I have to get ready, so I'm going to go do that.
Hope everyone's doing well! 

I love it!

I've lost 5 pounds already!  I'm still not eating the best but I'm eating small portions and exercising, A LOT.  My trusty dog and I took our normal walk/jog around the neighborhood this morning...I'm so glad I finally live in a neighborhood where I don't have to worry about a lot of foot traffic or weirdos lol. 
All I've had to eat so far today is a bowl of cereal.  I can't decide what I want for lunch....I'm thinking I'll walk down to Subway and get a little somethin.
I'm pretty excited for tonight- my husband, my step son, and I are planning a fun night at the park...frisbee, basketball, football, and kite flying are on the agenda.  It should be a good time.  I'm glad that it's finally nice out so we can get our  son out and playing instead of sitting in front of the tv playing video games all day.  I feel bad because our huge appetites and carelessness with food has sort of lead the way for him developing horrible eating habits and laziness.  But I'm changing that...for my husband, my step son, my dog and me.  (whether they like it or not lol)
Thanks again for all of your guys' support.  I love it!  I'm going to make an effort to try and comment on other peoples' blogs but for some reason my computer doesn't like to allow me to do so.  So if I'm not commenting a lot just know that I'm thinking of all of you and wishing you well with your journeys!  Have a great day!


I came home from work tonight to my adorable husband making us blt's for dinner.  I forgot to mention to him that I'm on a diet but the only thing really wrong with blt's is the b, so I figure if I don't go too crazy with the bacon I should be ok. 
I had a good night tonight.  At work for lunch all I had to eat was a salad and some salami (I know,  a weird combination). 
I'm planning on waking up at around 8am again tomorrow and walking for most of the morning, I don't have to work until 2pm so I figure if I get an early start and I end up feeling ambitious I can make it a most of the day thing.  I'm pretty excited :)
I suppose I should eat a little bit now.  See ya'll tomorrow!

Profile and Before Pictures!

Whenever I look at my site none of the pictures I posted on here show up.  Are you guys able to see my profile and before picture?  Please let me know!
Thanks :)


So my husband decided to wake me up at around 8am this morning because he wanted to get breakfast and groceries.  We decided on Mcdonald's (stupid, I know), I got an egg mcmuffin, a hashbrown, and orange juice.  On their little tray things they have the calories, protein, carbs, etc listed.  My breakfast was 750 calories.  I felt guilty so after we got home I took the dog for an hour and a half walk around the neighborhood.  I'm doing this thing where I try to jog for a couple of blocks, and then walk a couple of blocks.  I'm hoping eventually I'll get to where I can just jog the whole time, that would be amazing.  Lol I'm sure if anyone were to watch me they'd think I'm crazy.  I wish the bike trails around here would stop being flooded so I could go on them and not have to feel so self concious about my body flopping around when I jog. 
Anyway, I suppose I should get ready for work.  I am a residential support aide at a behavioral health place.  I love working there because they only allow nutritious food, and they like to go for walks.  And I pretty much adore all the ladies I help take care of :)
I'll probably write on this later.  Pray that I can control my eating for the rest of today!

A fresh start

Hi, my name is Tonja and I am addicted to food.  I eat, and eat and eat some more, even when I'm not even hungry.  I did weight watchers about 2 months ago and was successful for the 2 months that I was a member, losing 20 lbs, but I was forced to quit due to money issues.  I'm hoping this blog will get me back into losing weight.  I'm hoping people  add me on here to keep me on track.  If I have people to answer to it helps me not go crazy with food.  Thanks for taking the time to read this and feel free to befriend me!
