It July 9th, 2009, and I'm tired of making excuses and not following through to get what I really want. I feel good when I workout. So why have I had such a hard time staying committed to my workouts? My mind is set like it was back in January 2007 when I began my journey of losing 23 pounds. I was consistent, committed, and I was confident. I am going to do this again. I know more than I did then, so it should be easier than before. Plus, I don't have to lose as much weight as I did then. I've kept off 20 of the original pounds, now I want to lose 10 more. It's always been my goal to get to the weight I'll be when I lose the 10, I just tinkered out early cause I thought I was doing "so great". Anyways, here goes.
My goal is to weigh 120 pounds....I don't care how long it takes, but preferrably by New Years Eve 2009. My husband and I want to have a baby next year, and I want to be in the best shape of my life before that happens. I want to feel healthy while I'm pregnant. This is my last chance to make that happen.
I'm just tracking my food intake everyday and working out at least an hour a day, 5 days a week. Sometimes I take a Pilates class before a cardio class, and that brings my workouts to 2 hours.

Hi Trina, Tried calling you today about Nanny. I'm sure you received my call.
Still trying to stay on track - by watching what I eat. It's not always easy, but it is getting more of a new way of eating most of the time. I do not seem to find the time to exercise though. I do walk as much as is possible during my breaks and lunch time. I also try the TV fit channel for exercising - maybe every other week NOT GOOD. I miss and love you - Keep up the good work - keep exercising whenever possible. You look great.

I haven't been on this site for a while. I just want to say how good you look. I had a wonderful time at your new place. I'm going to keep on trying to lose weight, eat healthy, and exercise. At least since I started on this site last year I pretty much have stayed within 1-3 lbs of the 9 pounds I lost the year before, so I guess that is better than gaining more. Take care. Love and miss you.

Hi Trina, I love your new picture you put up. Maybe I could get a 5x7 to put up. I want to put new pictures out. I need someone to teach me how to put pictures on this site. I don't know how. I would like to put more pictures. I do not seem to have the time anymore to walk or exercise. I really need to do both. I have been very sluggish lately. I am so busy all the time. Looking forward to seeing you and Matt this evening. Keep up the good work in eating healthy and exercising. You look great. Love Mom

Trina - Thanks for the comment - Yesterday it was so hot, that Debbie and I only walked 45 min. Tonight we are going to walk later at 7pm - so maybe we'll walk a little longer. I am impressed that Debbie has been consistent every week since before the start of the year. It looks like you've been doing great yourself. Looking forward to you moving back to the bay area and being closer to us. Talk to you soon. Keep up the great weight loss journey. Have a great day. Love Mom
