Going to lose that weight!

How: Taking it one day at the time. With the good choises, the right food and excersising. And if I go over one day. There is always tomorow.

It will go slow for I have Hypothyroidism. It will be hard because I'am a carb-junky. But it wil be done.

update: It's not going slow at al. I'am only 10 lb behind the ideal scedual of 2 lb los a week and that after 11 month, thats almost nothing. WHOO HOO

updat 2: I did hit a plateau and had a summer ease periode. Fact is and was that after losing more then 85 LB and starting to function fine with my current weight, I became a bit ... less motivated.
I did excercise as I love it, but i was less contious on my eating which did gain me 3 LB at one point ... O.K. I was on vacation ... I lost it and lost an other 5 Lb and gained those back and lost them and gained them back ... I kept on losing and gaining the same 5 LB weighting between 182 Lb and 177 Lb. dec 31 I was at the same level as I was after my vacation in september. I weighted 182 Lb. My condition has improved tremendous, but my weight wasn't improving at all.

I made a little eating change and I have lost 9 Lb since new year ... I guess I broke my plateau of month. I hope I wont hit one soon again .... But if I do:


Updat 3: Now I'am losing 5 LB between 175-170 LB over and over .. *shakes head with small grinn* I gues It goes in small chucks. Somehow it doesn't bother me that much. I continue is I have befor and I will -somewhere in the future- reach my goal.

Update 4: Now it's between 169 and 164 ... what is this???? Wel I'm getting fitter every day. Doing 5 Ks under 28 min. Pushing weight around like it's nothing. That's worth something (if not a lot) ...

Updat 5: sport is healthy for you ... is it ... I'm back on the couch with my leg in a cast. I ruptured my achilles tendon. Been there, done that WHY DOES HAPPEN AGAIN. It's my other leg so they are even now (although my left must heal first)

    HI!!!!!! Missed you so much! I am back, I know I've said that before. I wont be on as much as I was in the past but a few times a week at least. I've been low carb eating for two months now and almost down a full size. Still not where I was before but I will get there. Very committed, in a much better place! Can't wait to chat with you more! (hugs)

    Tess, you didn't even comment on hubby and my upcoming trip to Curacao this November. I thought it was an independent member of the Netherlands. I thought you'd tease me emoticon for sure.

    Have been working from home (loving it), not losing weight like I should but what can I say. How have you been?

    Still looking forward to seeing you on the next challenge. I have been slacking in exercise since hubby came home. I took him to a spa for his birthday (6 saunas, numerous pools of different temps) Need to exercise today!!!!!
