Only 2 lbs to goal!

Saturday, January 12, 2008

Woo Hoo! I don't know what I did other than cut most all carbs out but I've finally managed to get below 148 lbs. I've been there since Dec 17th. I know, I know we had holidays but I don't like to be on a plateau. I'm just 2 lbs from goal and my calories haven't been radically low either. I started taking a tablespoon or two of olive oil again. It's so good for you and helps your skin, hair and your good cholestrol, plus it helps you to feel satisfied. Not all fats are bad and you would do well to add some to your diet. It could be, with the low carbs, the reason I broke my plateau. Anyway, I'm excited again. I'd begun to think I'd never get below 148, or even back down to it. I don't mind losing slowly but it's the days my weight goes up for no reason and then down the next day for weeks that bothers me.
The doggy is my Zacky when he was without all his hair. He's wearing an newborn baby's undershirt. I call it jammy time!

    Congratulations to you! Only 2 pounds to your goal! That is just great. I would have never thought of just taking olive oil by the tablespoon. Perhaps was helpful for you. You have done a great job! I think your little dog is cute in his jammies. Rosy

    That's wonderful. I'm glad you broke the barrier. What an accomplishment you have to share about. It encourages me to see that "Yes it can be done!" Have a great week. Fran

    That is great advice. I just started eating my salads with a touch of olive oil and balsamic vinegar. I guess I should keep it up, huh? Great job on breaking through your plateau. I am waiting for the day I see 150 again. And then 148... and then 146... and... Thanks for the motivation! Great job!

OK, I'm back to normal, (which really isn't normal), and I'm all calm and ready to start losing again. One of our team members, (Friends of Dr. Johnson), has lost a huge amount of weight this past year and we are so happy for her. She's gone from the 400's to the 200's and we are so proud of her. She has such determination and perserverance that it is inspiring. Actually, I think that there are two that have lost incredible amounts this year. I know, I'm still in the past, but it doesn't hurt to gloat a little over our accomplishments. We have grown in number so fast but we are still a tight little group with lots of enthusiam and I'm just glad to have taken a friend's advice to start a team. It's been a rewarding experience for me. I'm looking forward to 2008 with enthusiam and excitement. This year may be the best year of my life!

This is my Pomeranian, Zacky, who lost almost all his hair for 2 years and then it all came back in...my baby boy is so cute!

What's up with me???

Monday, January 07, 2008

How hard is this? After 195 calories, only down .5 lb?? I was hoping to at least get down 2 lbs. Eating such a low amount wasn't the hard thing, the hard thing is only losing .5 lb. I'm telling you, my body is fighting to keep me at this weight. How can other people lose when they eat more than twice the amount I do? This is the perfect example of why I get radical. Now, I'm not advising or recommending that anyone else do what I do, but I do what I do because I don't lose otherwise. Yes, I can lose after holidays and vacations, but when it comes to progressing downward, I'm having a real tough time. My low was 146.5 but I only saw it fleetingly. Help! What am I going to do to shake this body into losing weight? You say, exercise, I tried that several years ago. For months I exercised everyday doing 4.5 mph for 45 minutes (on the treadmill) a day. Did I lose? No, I probably got stronger (that was my goal, to get healthy because my sister had just found out she had terminal cancer) but that was right before my 1st heart attack so I guess I didn't really even get stronger. Then a little over a year later, a second heart attack while on the treadmill. I guess my reasons for not exercising are pretty deep seated...I just don't know what to do next?? Maybe 3 down days in a row? One down, 2 to go? There's got to be a way to do this, but what is it???

    Hi, I saw your Huddle comment and thought I would check in. I too struggle with disappointment with slow or non-existent losses. It's not too bad if I know I made poor choices but when I "tow the line" and don't lose I get very down. I could say all the right Christian and weight loss stuff but instead, here's a big hug coming your way. :) Fran

    Hi....I know you have a special diet plan, but maybe you should try to do more grazing throughout the day...it might let your body know that it isn't going to starve, so it will release the extra pounds for you. Just an idea.

2008, Here I come!

Friday, January 04, 2008

Well, 2008 is here!, and I've been thinking of how blessed I am. 2007 was a great year for me. The biggest reason for that is that I realized how good God has been to me, I always knew that but it really came home to me this year. I changed my focus to thinking on the good in everything and realized just how much good that I have in my life. I was able to learn how to lose and maintain that loss of weight. I'm not focused on what I don't have and what I can't eat but I have realized that what you focus on, you bring into your life so I have changed my way of thinking. I'm trying to be a better mom, wife and Christian. (Not necessarily in that order) I used to say that into each life some rain must fall but I'm drowning. I no longer focus on the bad things that have happened to me in the past but on the good things that God has given me. I thank God for that realization and I plan on keeping this new way of thinking in 2008. I feel that 2008 will be even better than 2007. I hope that all of you that read this will try this way of thinking. It's emotionally stimulating and I wish you all the best in 2008.
