Id like to invite you to join in my challenge to lose 10 pound in July. i know some of us might be saying 10 pounds? that is too much! cant do it! But i here to tell u i did it for 7 months straight, b4 i got sick with cancer and had dropped out for a yr and a half. if u stay within ur calories that are alotted and if u track everything that passes ur lips u can do it too. I was never one that stayed on a diet more than 3 weeks at a time, and then I'd get discouraged and dropped off. i lost 75 pounds just doing calorie counting and tracking to make sure i never went over. i barely exercised ...i am handicapped and i cant do exercises in the conventional way but i flapped my arms while sitting and leg raises. very minimal stuff. the idea was to keep moving and i did that. so i know with disipline, encouragement and motivation u can too.. so i invite u to come and join me on my 10 pound challenge! click on link below! or if that doesnt work cut and paste it! please join me on my new journey to begin again!!

Mentally, yes. Physically, no. I gave blood yesterday, so I had an "easy" workout. I was going to make up for it today by running a 5K, but at 15 minutes in, I felt like I was going to faint, so I stopped. I did do the elliptical (slowly for some parts of it) for 23 minutes, so I did manage to get in 45 minutes today, but they weren't intense. I'm really disappointed that I wasn't able to even get to 2 miles today though, I managed just under 1.5 miles. I can only hope that it is due to giving blood. I'm going to try again tomorrow. I have to get a 5K in either tomorrow or Sunday though!
Thanks for the article I'm still completely motivated and I'm 100% definitely NOT giving up. But I'm just discouraged is all. I've just been in a bad mood all day and seeing the number on the scale didn't help. I knew it would go up, I just didn't expect it to go up THAT much. But I weighed myself before I went to the gym and it was the same number as this morning...so maybe it'll have dropped tomorrow since you tend to weigh the most in the middle of the day. We'll just have to see. 1494 days ago
