Trying again and losing

Tuesday, February 28, 2012

Well I cant say that I am losing at anything right now aside from maybe my battle with night eating. I have a full year membership paid for at the YMCA. I have been going for three weeks now and I am loving it more and more every day! So much has been going on I dont know where to start. I have decided that I need to lose at least 30 more pounds to be fully happy. Well in November I met this AMAZING man that is helping me do just that. He is more supportive than I could have imagined a man could be. I have decided to run in the Cheese Chase in June here in Marshfield. Well if you know me you know that I am not a runner what so ever but I am going to do it, why, you may ask. Well the answer is an easy one, and the answer is because I CAN. I am hoping that soon I can have my eating under control enough to get the scale to move some more. I do cardio and strength training at the Y. I am working on getting my running pace down so I can do the Chase in June. There are four of us that are going to be doing it, me, my bf, my bro and my sis in law. I am so excited to be doing it! Now lets hope that everything else will start to fall into place.

    You are headed in the right direction just keep going! I know you will be ready if you keep it up. As for the eating it will happen when you let it! It is hard but I know you can do it!

thankful for so much

Wednesday, July 20, 2011

Today was a very trying day for my patients. Today was the day I would find out if someone rented my apt or if I would have to pay next months rent. Had an appt for getting a new knee brace ( a month or better over due! )
So after last nights storms I didn't know what to think of how today would go. I had to work today n kept an eye on the clock....the apts had someone scheduled to sign a lease at 1pm for my apt but there was still an option that he wouldn't sign it or take a different apt. I got done with work and called the Mgr of the apts on my way to my doc appt. He had GREAT GREAT news for me, the guy took my apt! WOOHOO! Don't have to pay two rents next month!
Now time for the doc appt. First time being seen since Dec when I got the brace. Totally my fault for not being seen, but since I am losing weight my thighs n legs in general are getting smaller/leaner n my old brace no longer did anything for me. Doc sees me and asks about an MRI, I turned it down, n doc agreed to get refitted for a smaller brace. I was so happy to get it, its so amazing the difference that it makes. I'm so excited to get back to normal. Also while in the docs office we discussed weight loss...I have lost 30 pounds since this time last yr! :D
I am so thankful that I have found the power to lose this weight n that someone took my apt n that I can now do full workouts again!

Time to ROTATE!

Sunday, July 17, 2011

I have hit that point in this journey that I need to rotate out my work outs n my meals. I'm going to switch up my cardio with cycling n less on the treadmill. I have to also switch from the total body machine to resistant bands. As for my meals, I'm not sure yet how I am going to switch that up yet. I am still getting in all the thing that I need to get in a day, but I am thinking that I just need to get more of a variety in.

    You may just have to try things to see what works for you.

    Are you stuck on a plateau?
If so you might need to change things up.
But remember if you are burning more calories and not eating to compensate for the extra calories burned your body will go into starvation mode.... emoticon
This happened to me. And as soon as I changed things up I started losing again.
Good Luck.

6 times, this morning!

Saturday, July 16, 2011

That is how many times I stepped on the scale this morning! Why you may ask, well I just couldn't believe what it was saying. I was kinda stuck this week so I wasn't expecting a loss this week because of lack of working out on my part. I was so wrong...I went past my 2nd goal of 10% lost. I am down to 192.8....goal was 194. It gives me a a second wind n makes me wanna work out all the more this coming week.
