I kind of wish I had taken measurements at the beginning of January, when I started my journey. The first month I lost 11 lbs. Then gained a 1lb. the first part of this month, now I've lost the 1lb. again. I'm ok with that though, because I know I have lost inches this month, which is still good progress. I can see it all over, especially my hands, and all my clothes aren't as tight.
I know it's not too late to take measurements and see the progress from here on out, but it would have been really helpful this week since I haven't lost or gained.

I no longer have any excuses for NOT exercising. I'm fully capable of doing it, and when I do, I love it. I just choose not to on most days. By choosing not to though, I'm also choosing to remain this size for the rest of my life. I am NOT ok with that, I want to be a healthy size. I lost 10 lbs last month, and I can do it again! 260 lbs, is surely better than 270 lbs. , but I know I can do better than that. I have read about people on here that are carrying around a lot more weight than myself and are also a lot older, working out and losing weight; if they can grin and bear it, so can I. I have no reason to continue putting myself off. I am important! I need to start putting myself first.

I feel good today!
***Aside from a little bad mood an hour ago, but it didn't last long. My phone broke at work, and I couldn't page people... that was the extent of that. ***
I was taking my trash out at my apartment today, and a man was walking towards me and offered to take it for me the rest of the way to the dumpster. I told him I got it, but thanked him; just because I wanted the extra steps. Haha. Come to think about it... Tuesday I was getting cans for that piece of pie I made at work(see blog). I was carrying a box of 17 cans, plus all the bags of marshmallows and dropped a few cans on the way to my car. A man got out of his car just to pick them up for me! How sweet. I love all this positive attention I keep getting from men lately. If nothing else, it at least puts a smile on my face. Maybe people sense happiness, and are more willing to help someone. Either way... both men put smiles on my face for their kind gestures! It's nice to see there are still a FEW good men around in today's society!
I know this is probably a random blog topic, but it's really the simple things like this that make me smile. I just wish more people in the world could be like this!

I love the Ellen show. I've decided to be productive while watching the show today since I'm not at work being productive. I'm exercising on my Gazelle Edge while the show is going, and resting during the commercials. 20 minutes! I have to get ready, and go do some laundry now. I have to go into the dealership early today so I'm taking advantage of my time off. I'll do more exercise tonight though.

I feel like I eat the same things all the time. Not that it isn't good, but maybe my body is just used to what it's going to get for the day and it's at a halt. I eat a serving of Quaker Oats Cinnamon Life for breakfast every morning. Sometimes I switch to Honey Bunches of Oats with Almonds, but I like the fact that cereal is so convient & easy, especially when my mornings are already crazy enough just getting ready for work.
For lunch I normally heat up a Smart One meal... and that changes all the time. It's not the same meal for lunch EVERY day. Haha, that'd be really boring. I don't get bored with the food. I think it's great, but maybe my body is bored with it. Plus it's hard when nothing ever sounds good to eat. Haha.
