This is a must do.Got on the scales this morning and although I always walk EVERY DAY I am back up to 180! NOOOOOOOOO! This is unacceptable. I will make proper food choices and I started this morning.
Off running! (This is a blog to me,myself-but I have no problem with ALL THE SUPPORT I CAN GET!!!!)

2 years ago when this picture was taken,I was at about 165....back down I must go!


Here I am!

Friday, June 10, 2011

I am still a'sparkin'.....just not taking too much time to be online as life is happening in the real world.
Two months ago I made a goal of running the 4 on the 4th race here in Bridgton. I am walking and running every day and feeling pretty strong. I am very committed to doing this,have already registered for the race. I must run it at a bit faster than 8 mph in order to break my record time of 32 minutes. I want to win it for my age and gender category and I know I can do it if I try hard enough. My one concern is that I will still be carrying around a sizable amount of extra weight still. I'm down in the 160's somewhere but I should really weigh 120-130-I'm not that tall or big boned.But no matter-I mean to run it not with standing,no matter what I weigh on the 4th of July. Three years ago I was registered to run this particular race when I got a call in the night around 3 am 4th of July from my sister-in-law telling me my 51 year old brother was dead. I'd spoken to him only a few hours earlier around 9 pm the night before. So needless to say-I did not run in the race that year.
I'm running it for Kurtie,my younger brother this year and I mean to win it. If I don't win it this year,I will commit to winning it next year as I will be at a better weight by next year.I am not going to go back into weight apathy.

    I know you will give it your all! My niece is up in Maine on her honeymoon - Old Orchard Beach. She's sending some beautiful pictures of the scenery, along with pictures of everything they eat and drink! LOL! Good thing I'm not eating all that - although it looks yummy!

    Hi Pat, Yes I thought I would put up a blog as my last one was so long ago. I just don't seem to find enough time to blog every day.
Yes the two people on my mom's roof are Kurtie at 16 and me around 18 watching the Memorial Day parade. I used to play sax in the band and I was missing marching with my class.I love this picture of my brother and me. One of my all time favorites.
The top picture is when I was in the 150's weight-wise when Chris and I started dating back in 1999 or 2000. I had lost enough in the first few months to feel comfortable enough to sit in his lap. THAT was a long time ago but I'm getting there. I never did loose enough to be at my normal weight.A year after we started dating I got breast cancer and that did a number on me.I gained back up to 190. I'm not going back there.

I'm Feeling It!

Saturday, February 19, 2011

I am totally believing that this is the time I can do it-get to my goal and stay there. The dress rehearsal is so over. Even if I flub up a little-from now on,it's "Love Thyself" time! My life is passing me by and I don't want to spend the last bits of it burdened by overweight.
I seem to have SO much energy for exercise this past week-like some weird switch flipped on wide open.
I'm psyched.
Just putting this out there....mostly for ME!!!!!!!
Picture is of me after 4 babies(youngest is now 22) I KNOW I CAN DO THIS!

Hmmmmmmmm.....something interesting is going on....

Thursday, February 17, 2011

OK I'm not going to question it or confront it but something inside me is definitely on the mend attitude-wise.
I feel great. Heavy but great. I haven't felt worth anything for so long even though I intellectually know I AM worth a's that emotional deficit I was immersed in. It's gone....don't know why but I don't much care. I just got through dancing my brains out in my studio for half an hour,passed up tonight's supper of lasagna and still feel undeprived. It's like I'm falling in love or something (I always loose a lot of weight when I first fall in love)....but I think the one I may be falling in love with just might be myself....hmmmmm.....thin Cheryl...long time no see.....I see glimpses of me that I haven't seen for years.
I'm going to RUN WITH THIS FEELING!!!!
PS Picture at top is me last week at a strawberry shortcake shop in Florida. Bottom pic is one of my favorites,me standing in the window of Urquart Castle in Lochness,Scotland,about 30 pounds's do-able!!!src="">

Here I am!

Monday, January 03, 2011

Just finished my very delicious chicken,brown rice and peas along with a nice tossed salad. Feeling better every day and wondering why oh why do I not stick to this way of eating when it makes me feel so much better???!!!!
Not walking very much yet but it will come.
I know this blog is not particularly interesting but it's for me,mostly,as I think checking in verbally everyday helps me keep on ytack-even if it does make boring reading from time to time.
On to the next day! Hooray!
