Shared Food & Fitness Trackers
Jan 2014 - I maintained for over a year, then I got a bit lazy, stopped tracking, started eating a few more desserts, ice cream (my nemesis) just regular food and my clothes started getting a bit snug. I already got rid of all my bigger clothes, but now I am at the point where I would have to go shopping again for a bigger size! Ok that did it, I am back - 20 lbs have crept on. I want to get back to feeling great again. Here we go.
Updated Jan 2012 - down total 85lbs. Body keeps changing, looking better everyone tells me. The scale doesn't change but that is ok with me its the mirror and clothes fit that I love. I am continuing with working out and eating well. Bought size 9 jeans OMG! Clothes from last April are too big......which is a shame, but just means have to go shopping again.
Updated May 2011: After 1 year and 70 lbs down (woohoo), I am ecstatic about where I am, but now back from China and back to golfing and new trainer and more challenging workout at gym and joined gym at the office for ease of morning workouts. I am invigorated to keep it going. New goals to lose 20-25lbs, be a size 10, but more importantly : lose my muffin top, tone up and continue to be healthy and happy.
From Feb 2010: Around my 40th birthday, I woke up to the fact that I had been ignoring what I look like, not to mention my health. A coworker told me about SP as she used it to lose 50lbs and I checked it out. I had tried things in the past and just didn't stick with it. But something just clicked in my head, what was I waiting for, no one is going to do it for me. I had been avoiding pictures and planning some great travel vacations because I am just not fit. I want to feel good, healthy and be able to do more. I started SP on Feb 1, 2010 (my 40th birthday wakeup call).
Feb 15,I entered my true starting weight and it was even worse than I thought. But I was even more determined. I am not just "chunky" according to BMI I am obese. And after 3 weeks feeling good, eating much healthier, and going to the gym. And down 4lbs !
1 month in clothes feel slightly looser and look better. March 15 - down 12 pounds and bought 1 size smaller jeans! Woohoo!
April 5th down 20lbs - smaller jeans that bought above feel great and well are getting looser!!
April 30th - 30lbs down - woohoo! But now I only have 1 new pair of jeans and golfskirt that fit me.
June 25th-50lbs down - buying size 14 plus pants woohoo!
Update Jan 2011 - down 70 lbs! And have to keep buying smaller pants! Now a size 11 which are getting loose.
Get Healthly! Lose Fat.
I want to Stop shopping in the Plus size section!

Tracking everything I eat and making healthy choices. Portion control and eating lots fruits and veggies. 1300-1600 calories (usually 1300)
Date with gym 3-4x week with 60 mins on treadmill and least 3x week strength training
New personal trainer (March 8,2010) upped my strength training to include more "core" excercises and make me work harder!
Another personal training session 04/19 to take it up another notch. It is a tough workout!
June 2010 - I stopped tracking because I am now living it, I am golfing 3-4x week so not getting to gym as much but I am very active.
I love golf, love to travel , go to movies , I love any live sporting event/team - hockey especially.
I have a Coach purse fetish, I love them and have 13 of them.

In a little over a week I'll be moving to China to teach English for a year. I noticed that you've lived in China and have had major success with losing weight and getting healthy. I hope to gain tips and support from people who've lived in China, i.e., people like you! :)

Thank you for spending the time to read my blog - I think having just put that blog together - the first time I have actually put the developing story together like that and now the penny has dropped - and I am beginning to realise what I have done!! So - I'm just a bit slow in the uptake!! LOL!!
However it has proved one thing to me – that if I can do it anyone can do it and you will find that the results are way beyond your wildest dreams!!
