I want my goal weight to be 155lbs! (DONE)!! Want to workout & learn to eat smart!!

3/16/08: o.k. as of today I HAVE REACHED MY GOAL!!! I really have done better than I thought I would have. I feel great. My eating habits have changed dramatically. Now that I have reached my goal wt. I want to continue exercising & eating right & see if I continue to lose wt.
Also - I absolutely am obsessed with SP now!! It has been such a motivation for me - Being able to log my food has worked wonders for my eating habits.

3/19/08 - As of today, the scale showed 154 lbs. So, I am going to change my goal wt. to 150 lbs. I am 5' 8.5" & really don't know what my body wt. should be. I want to continue to lose wt. but, I don't want to get too crazy. Also, I am starting to lift heavier wt's.

3/31/08 - Joined Victoria's Secret Angels group for motivation - starting wt. 151.8 lbs!!! Let's see if I can drop 5 lbs. this month!!!!

4/01/08 - Ordered the ebook Burn the Fat Feed the Muscle. Can't wait to apply what I learn from the book to my diet & exercise routine!!! Even more, I can't wait to see the results!!!

4/3/08 - Reached 2nd goal wt!!! Current wt. 150.8 lbs!!! I have been getting up early & exercising hard & really trying to watch everything I put in my mouth!!! I love the results I am seeing!!! I will now set a new goal wt. of 145 lbs!!!

    Thanks so much for the encouragement, Deb! I love/hate this muscle building phase I`m in right now...but I know it`ll pay off BIG in the end! This morning is the first time I did NOT step on the scale! emoticon All that I see is the imprint in the carpet where it normally has sat for the past 2 years!!

    You have some awesome looking arm and leg muscles, by the way!!! emoticon

    Hey you! So glad to see you back! I've made my little come back now... started going to the gym again, just struggling on the food a little bit again. I was doing so well when I first did it but now i seem to be having trouble and lack of motivation. Ugh. How are you??

    Hi, Deb.

    Thanks for your kind words, thoughts and prayers on my blog about our family's recent loss. It helps to know there are people who are thinking of us in our time of loss.
