About Me

  • Biography
    Hi, I'm Precious. I've been pretty much a big girl all my life. I've been chosen with a purpose and a vision from God. I love to dance and sing and feel that life would be so much better if I were a bit smaller and able to enjoy life a little more.

  1. OMG>..i love Pasta too..but, the troubling thing is is that since I've been banded, I've only eaten a little but not so little that it has caused a drastic weight change. However, I suggest if you want to get good results you have to leave those foods alone. Focus on foods with high nutrients and that way you won't go wrong. No need to track calories..I learned that that stuff just gets frustrated so I realize..if I'm conscience of everything that goes in mouth..I don't have to worry too much bout anything coming back out directly after consumption. You get me? Ididn't want to get to graphic for those of us with weak stomachs lol..but, overall I'ma junk food junkie and a pasta fanatic..So, these are the things still to this day I'm striving to leave a lone..but, first things first is setting goals..I'm going or working on a 40 day fast of staying committed...which includes: Leaving soda, junk, and pasta alone Drinking plenty of Water Making sure to excercise at least 3 (cardio work outs) days a week and possibly two days of small strength training Track weight loss and measurements. Find a job as this fast encourages my weight loss along with my spirituality..or strengthens my relationship with God, honestly you can't have one without the other..cause God will see you through this difficult process..take it one day at a time..and don't let one days mess ups become an annual thing....start over and over until you can't start over no more and just decide to STICK WITH IT! Good luck everyone! God bless
  2. So, I'm back in the gym doing my routine work outs since I've graduated from school and currently looking for a full-time job. However, I am trying to figure out..what will prevent this soreness in my body. Yesterday, I went to a work out session offered through my church..it was about 1.5 hours of work outs...Well, I'm going to the gym T, W, Th, and Friday...not sure exactlyl if I'm damaging anything..or if I'm simply warming up those unused muscles that haven't been FULLY and completely worked out in about 6-8 months. Yes, I said 6-8 months. Sad, but honesty is the key to a successful you. Well, I haven't gained weight. but, I'm loosing slowly...so please tell me what do I need to do to prevent body soreness before and after my 30minutes to 1 hour workouts I anticipate on doing per day..(or at least 5 weekdays)

    Exercise Goals #3

    I'm getting back into the hang of things. I think I'm going to do some Jillian MIcheal's excercise tapes after homework and cleaning. I'm not hungry at the moment but I know i need to eat something. I'm so excited cause this time the weight is coming off! Bye bye fat!

    Why do people treat others differently when they are fat?

    Girl, I get fat jokes all the tiem. I'm at the point where I don't give a shit! REally! cause I feel if you can laugh at me...you have nothign better to do with your time..I'm working on my weight loss and once I get to 150 lbs..I will be happy and complete with myself..you're doing this for you..and no one else.let the haters know..I'm big and beautiful now..and once I'm skinny..I'll be skinny and beautiful..nothing changed but the size..stay ab eatuiful person..don't let NO ONE see you sweat beautiful!

    Poppin my Blog Cherry!!!

    you are hella funny! I'm glad you made that decision..be motivated..and continuous..
  7. yeah I really agree with you skinnylinds..maybe my fills are the problem..because I've only had two since my surgery..and I don't think its been very tight...enough..I mean, I have only lost a whopping 5lbs in a year! I had the motivation to work out..but, I attend UIUC in Champaign..I'm currently a Women's Studies student trying to get into a nursing program...However, my motivation is hard..but, a professor told me that taking a novel (trashy novel..haha..or something you would like to read in your spare time) to the gym would be great because you are motivated to read that book because you want to know what's going on...if it is good...so, I think once I jump back on the "band' wagon...this is what I will be doing as a motivation to get me to the gym..my gyms are free as well...do you have a list of nursing schools that accept non-nursing degree students? I want to eventually go into nursing..I will hopefully be applying to Rush university's nursing program in the summer of 2010...so, wish me luck...please..how's the nursing going for u thus far?
  8. I'm not sure If my band has been stretched since I had this surgery. I am sure that when I eat too much and when I drink directly afterwards..It usually result in throwing up. So, I suggest don't do it. I hate throwing up. So, I choose NOT to do it.
  9. HI you all! I've been using Mega T for awhile. It really helps curve my hunger unlike any other peel. I'm not too sure as to what doctor's think about it because I haven't seen my doctor to talk about it yet? However, i was wondering if you all knew the setbacks and things that might not go to well with this metabolism enhancing peel. Also, about whey protein...If I make a whey protein shake for two days..do you all think that this is a pretty sweet deal or no? Is whey protein useful? The good thing about Mega T is that is was $4 dollars at Wal-Mart when I first got it, and it really curves the appetite. If you all have professional knowledge about this..please let me know..

    Night time hunger

    I find that when I eat breakfast...enough proteins before 5pm.I do pretty well...800-1200 calories kinda work..but, I think if you try some things out..and get some good exercise in...Do your thang!

    Home Excercise Options

    I don't have a personal gym but my apt. building has a gym in it. I go there and get on the treadmill. I'm not too concerned bout the muscle workouts..I'm more concerned with the cardio slash fat workouts. Hopefully,they're successful. I really haven't noticed the progress, but I know i'm progressing. Good luck! I think I'm going to try the Turbo Jam Dances! I love to dance..So, I just might find that a bit more useful.
