Hello, I'm Deeona. I'm 45. I have a husband and 2 kids. Kendrew 12 years & Bryant 9 years old.
update: Nov. 11, 2007
Been really having trouble with pain lately. Which in turn makes me more depressed because I have a hard time doing stuff and picking up and/or holding my children.

Dec. 23, 2007
Christmas is around the bend already. Another year past and I haven't done much of what I've said I was going to do. Which adds to my depression I really need to get on the ball. Get stuff done and try to get chores done for mine and my kidsand husbands health. And get to losing weight again. I've not been doing very good since a ltlle b4 Thanksgiving.

Update: Nov. 18, 2007
I've been having a really hard time this year with seasonal depressional. Which inturn has made me start emotional eating worse then ever. Yesterday I ate 2,516 calories. I've never had seasonal depression this bad. BUt I guess it's kinda worse because of the PPD. Any way I have gained back my 15 pounds.

Update: January 8, 2008
I haven't been doing good at all with sparking or eating right. I gained a lot of weight back. I am going to take it all off I hope by my birthday. And get active again.

Update: March 25, 2008
I han't been doing well at all. All these holidays in a row. All the yummy candy. And all the stress I have been under. I just about to quit trying. And just let the days go by as they may. If I'm meant to be fat, unorganized, and low on energy- so be it. I can't seem to do it any more. I have gained all my wight then some. There is no way I am going to make my goal. I only weighed in the 150's or 160's when I first joined here. I did get down to lower 140's. But soon as fall came and the night's got longer. Poof there goes all my strength to keep going. I wish spring would get here soon. I'm tired of the cold. And it's been cloudy all the time too. So even though the days are longer, there still isn't any sun. (aarrgghh)

Update: 4/17/08
I really can['t get back on track. I'm very sad I won't be to my original goal weigh by my birthday. I guess I'll try to get to it by my Anniversary I guess. (There has been some sun, but been cloudy so not enough to help with SAD) I am at the heaviest weight (besides when pregnant), I've ever been. Until after I had Kendrew I never weighed over 135. When I met Jeff I weighed 115. But I know I will never get to that weight again. Keep me in prayer to get back on track and feel not so down.

Update: 5-10-08
I have been walking with my kids lately. I am starting to feel a bit better. I just need to start back into exercising more, drinking water, and eating less and better again.
I did a Moms walk today. We walked 4 miles. My legs and feet are hurting. But no pain no gain (on my goal).

Update: 6-22-08
Well it's my birthday. And I have 30+ pounds to lose. Went bowling and ate at TGI Friday's.... I havn't been walking or riding my bike much any more. And have been eating junk.

Update: 9-1-08
I have not been doing to well with my diet. Been eating a lot of junk food. Not doing actual exercise. Only playing with the kids. Been kinda down a lot too. I really need to get motivated so I can have more energy by losing this weight.

Update: 9-21-08
I've had a really bad week. I gained 3 pounds in 4 days. I can't fit pants that fit me on Wed. Between the baby wining a lot, Kendrew being a pest, and hearing bad news left and right. I just been so stressed, anxious, & overwheled, I have just been going a emotional wreck. Maybe I'll have a better week.

Update: 10-4-08
Well I didn't have a better week. My grandpa passed away 9-22, didn't find out til 9-24, when my husband called me at MOPS. So I am really down. And a lot of other stuff going on is getting me down. I am not really tracking stuff on here. I just tracked like 2 weeks of stuff except the food. Maybe my life is meant to be full of stress all the time. :(

Update: 10-9-08
Doing a little better about my grandpa. But stress with the kids and other stuff is really mounting on me.

Update: 10/27/08
Really been going crazy the last weeks. Kids are really driving me over the edge. I have been eating a lot of junk. Not been sleeping much. Attitude had been really lousy. So have been really down. I love my family but there is a need for a lot of changes, b4 I have a nervous break down.

Not been doing very good at all. I think I have gained back more then I planned on losing in the beginning, of me joining. Been soooo stressed out. And eating a lot of junk. Just can't seem to stay with eating well. Then been up and down since Thanksgiving '07.

Am going to try my hardest to get back on track. I have a Wii fit now. So exercising is a little more fun. I have been trying to do that every day. I did do it for the first 3 skipped on day and then ahve done it for 3 days now. I just been stressed out a lot. I did the exercising the one days because I've was actually been able to get out of bed b4 10 o'clock, on the days I exercised. I just need to go to sleep earlier. But I toss and turn a lot at night too. So maybe I need to do devotions b4 going to sleep and think about what I read. And not about the stress in my life.

Still not doing well. Staying up late. Eating garbage. I just can't get back on track. But I have really gained very much weight the last few months. Been staying between 175 - 178. Just up and down like a yo-yo, between those weights. I may have fibromyalgia too.

Still not doing very well. Been depressed a lot still. Last few days I've even found myself tearing up or crying. I haven't weighed myself in a while. But I'm sure I'm probably in he 180's. Not been exercising much. I did go for a walk to the park today with the boys. That isn't very far.

Haven't been on here in about a while as you can see. Been doing really bad. Low self-esteem, depression, stress, overwhelmed, and fed up with life. I have gained so much weight. I have a lot of aches and pains. Was diagnosed with asthma July 2011. My kids drive me crazy. My husband don't help much. He is a great person but just don't know how to help. He was pretty much a loner as a child. And his parents never really did much with him. And a lot of other stuff. I really need to lose 75 lbs. But try set a smaller goal of 25 lbs. for now.


Really have a a bad few years. I haven't been on here in a long time. I did join Curves last year. Lost 20 pounds in the firs 6 months. Then was up and down like a yoyo. This summer didn't go much and now I weight more than I did when I first joined Curves. (Curves shut down March 2015)

Have had a extremely bad year. I always said I'd never bear heavy. Well live happened and I am approximately 206 give or take. This is going to be a huge challenge trying to get stuff in order and in shape again.
