3/23/10 Losing 1 lb a week, still very tough times emotionally. I have not gone to the gym but am getting lots of exercise at home.
3/3/10 Finally lost 1 lb! Going thru very tough times at home and diet/exercise seems a whole different world away, but I have not lost touch completely.
2/2/10 Down 2 lbs, puts me at 169-I have to be super good this week and keep up the momentum to go down, put the 70's behind me forever!
1/26/10 Lost 2 lbs this week, back on track, the gym is becoming more regular again. The best reason I've found for exercising regularly is if you stop, its to hard to get back into action again. Hopefully someday exercising will be fun!
1/19/10: Lost I lb this week. I am finding it very hard to get back on track, eating and going to the gym. But there is alot to the saying "nothing tastes as good as thin feels", I repeat this to myself when I am tempted to stray.
1/12/10: Holidays are over, vacation is over- i am up 3 lbs, not good but not so bad. The great news is I AM ready to get back at it!
12/29/09 Whew, Christmas week is over and despite all the temptation that surrounded me I still lost 1 lb! My goal for this Sunday was to have lost another 3 lbs...thats probably not going to happen BUT I am 23 lbs closer than I was when I started :)
12/22/09 Wow, I thought I had a terrible week, friends stopping by with Christmas treats to have with coffee, neighbors bringing baked goods (you know I had to sample all most everything!) and with Cristmas drawing near, I have been running in high gear and exhausted- making my workouts shorter and I just didn't have the energy to give it my all. YET, I lost 2 lbs! As I approached the scale this morning, i was thinking "just don't let me go up", so believe me I was genuinly surprised and happy! Hopefully this week I will get back on track, I don't want to push my luck like that 2 weeks in a row. And honestly, the treats were sweet....sweeter than I ever remember them being, maybe my tastes are changing.
12/15/09 Yes, I lost 4 lbs this week! I don't know how but I'm taking it with a smile! That is 20 lbs to date! For my birthday I got some gift certificates and I can't wait to get some clothes that fit-although I would like to wait until after Christmas for the sales AND to see how much more I lose by than! :)
12/12/09 This just keeps getting better and better! Today is my 60th birthday and I weight 1 lb under the goal weight I had set for this date! My next goal date is Jan 3, we leave for vacation and I would like to lose another 7 lbs, I can do it, YES, I CAN!
12/6/09 I ran into an old friend today. She said something was different about me, that I looked so much younger and asked me if I had a facelift! Considering my 60th birthday is this week that was quiet a compliment! I told her the only change I had made was exercise and weight loss, I then shared SparkPeople with her. I never thought 15 lbs and exercise could make such a difference! I have a long way to go, but I can do this-sparkPeople have given me the knowledge and motivation and I am beginning to reap the rewards!
12/1/09 YES, got thru the holiday and lost one pound this week, I'm happy with that! The big 60 is in 12 days-my goal for that date is 3 more pounds, I can do it! Yes I can!
11/21/09 OK, The longer I go the easier this gets! My cravings are gone and all I think about is what will I fit into COMFORTABLY next! I've kind of switched my goals-I'm not thinking about surgery-I'm feeling GOOD and have even bought myself a few nice things.
Once I got past the stretching the exercise started and they are both starting to feel really good instead of a chore!
I love this and I can do it!!!
10/13/09 I joined SparkPeople in June, but haven't done anything but read the emails that were sent to me. They somehow created enough interest and motivation for me to feel as though I am ready to do this! I am tired of starting a diet every Monday, just to say to hell with it on Wednesday and binge the rest of the week because "I'm going to get serious this Monday", the cycle went on and on.
I need to have surgery on my left foot this spring and will be in a wheelchair for 10-12 weeks then a walking cast for another 3 months. I need to take this weight off so I can walk with less pain now and to make the whole "wheelchair experience" easier on me.
Of course I will also be looking forward to feeling better about myself AND shopping for some nice new clothes!
