A new Month.. still doing good!

Sunday, June 01, 2008

Well lost 40 pounds now and even thou i have lost all the weight still have 40 to lose or more. I look at my pics and look in mirror i like what i see but still have problem spots i have to work on more so i look like i want to. Been a long journey and i have learned so very much! it hasnt always been smooth sailing but have had so much support so i am blessed. I have tried to help a few here and there from what i have learned and sure hope some have gotten motivated to keep going on their healthy life style.It does take so long to lose and everyone has to be patient cause it wont come off fast and it shouldnt cause if it did then you will gain it all back cause you didnt learn a lot on the way!
I have to thank my daughter for all she has done to help and support me and all my friends on spark people who are always here for me that means a lot!! Keep going everyone you can do this!!! hugss and love always Geri

    Hello Geri,
I know you can do this, b/c the word "can't" is not in my vocabulary. You can say "I can do this. I can do this". Just take 1 day at a time and a lot of patience.
You are doing a terrific job on your own and with us behind you 100% too. You still have time to lose and you will feel totally different when it does come off. You are terrific person and do not let anyone tell you different. I have known you for a short time and I like you positive attitude. Take care, talk to you soon and have a good upcoming weekend. Always, ERNA

The Journey keeps going!

Monday, May 12, 2008

Well its May now and i am at 225!!! so lost 35 pounds so far! The one thing i thought i wanted to lose fast to see improvement, but now i am glad it went slow or i wouldnt have learned anything... and i have big time... learned to be postive, to give myself a break here anf there, not to look back,.. and make working out fun!!.. alos..The best thing is looking at myself in clothes and see how good i look and things fit so much better too!And from watching TLCs what not to wear if i do buy clothes which i do.. tops mostly cause can take them in( which i have taken almost all of my tops now..) i know more of what to pick out so dont look bigger than i am..! i will be so glad when i am out of plus sizes and can find more clothes cheaper.. that is one thing i am looking forward to!
The very best thing for me.. is this site and the many friends i have made.. i feel so blessed so grateful that my darling dughter told me about this site and ever since i have been so excited and so happy cause now i know i can do it and i am!!! thanks everyone all my wonderful friends and daughter for all your support! means a lot!

Still doing good!!

Friday, May 02, 2008

I had lost 30 pounds and then thought i didnt have to work so hard after that but then I was at a stand still so had to rethink things and realize i had mix things up and work out each day.. doing something different like more steeper incline on treadmill or do cardo tapes in tv room.. (my work out room).. and do heaver weights , which should be getting them for birthday this weekend!! so now i am down 33 pounds and still going!!

I am going to be 57 and i cant believe i waited so long to get in better shape . How come it takes us to long to realize things and do whats best for us. I guess just takes time, for me i had a lot to deal with to get over , which now i guess was the time to take care of me!! As women we always take care of everyone else but us, and no matter what i am going to take care of me and be healthier and more fit.! Now the problem is i cant see myself getting skinner, how is that going to be?? i dont know , its will be a journey to see what weight i will be at to feel good and healthy, i dont know if it will be 180 or not. Time will tell

The best thing is thru helping some on this site i have helped myself and i am so proud of so many who have not given up and keep going!! i wished everyone would read,.*the Secret** it is a wonderful book on being postive.. getting all you want thru law of attraction and not to keep any negative thoughts in your head.. all postive things will come true..!!
Keep going girls, we all can do it.. and blogging once in awhile just helps us all! Hugs Geri

    Happy Mother's Day!!! You are doing a great job and I'm so proud that you have lost more weight. I have not read the secret but did watch the DVD and I agree, it's a great way to live. I use the power of positive thinking every chance I get and it works!!! You're doing great and from another woman in her 50's who is trying to finally get it right, I salute you!!!

    Thanks for the comment on my blog today. I too, wonder why I had to wait til I was 55 to get serious about my health. Although, I am very healthy (other than the fat), that is not an excuse to keep up my bad habits. I am going to get that book, the secret. Thanks for the tip. Jo

    I believe that sometimes we need an adjustment period. That sometimes our bodies are just getting used to the new current weight., sort of a reset phase. So if during that time you maintain, its good. Why we wait so long? who knows. Maybe we have been too busy living to fine tune our selves.

Lost 27 pounds so far..!

Thursday, April 10, 2008

Its been since jan and i have lost 27 pounds and sometimes i look at myself and say * i can believe i lost that much*. wow.. i did it just when i thought i couldn't.. and then when i fell i was so upset cause i was going good and i Didn't want to lose the motivation i had and also thought i would gain but i didn't.! i guess cause i kept getting up and walking and not letting anything get me down . I was determined to get better and i did! so if this is a motivation for you it should be.. i think if i can get thu this at age 56 (i know i say that a then anyone can.. cause if anyone knows when we get older its much harder let alone being a woman.. men lose much easier but i am losing more than the thing is.. work out.. which i cant do much cardo now but i am walking a lot.. lift weights that so helps, and don't think food is a enemy its just to keep us alive and of course we have to be healthy too so i think eat as fresh as i can, ( i cook a lot too!).. and think positive.. food doesn't rule you.. you rule it.. yes it is good.. just eat a little.. and eat slowly.. taste it .. remember how good it was.. if you eat too fast you don't even know what you eat..! and remember your beautiful no matter what weight your at!

    Congratulation you just keep it up girl you are doing good work. I am very proud of you. I need some kind of machine to work out on seeing my air go meter bike is on it last legs and the weather does not corporate here. Although I told my husband to get me a Elliptical for my birthday which is in September. So I will just have to find some other cardio then the DVD's I have been doing all a long, until this weather warms up. Here are your next weights LOL . What weight are you looking to get. I am at eight lb's. emoticon emoticon

    i just wanted to say thanks for the advise about the soda. I was going to try to drink a little and go slowly but I think you're right. I should probably stop all together. Water, water, water. I'm sorry to hear that you hurt yourself. i hope you are doing better. I am a little accident prone. I always seem to have an injury. Take your time. Don't push yourself to fast. You will heal better. God Bless, Sue

    Hi there, I am so sorry to hear about your fall... I haven't checked on you lately and you were on my mind... I hope this post finds you feeling even better... I had a fall myself, Monday, running across a street, and fell on both knees and hurt my right hand... I'm sore, but ok... and have been able to exercise. Well, you fell first, maybe it was just my turn...:) Anyway, I'm taking my accident as a message to "slow down" and not be so much in a hurry all the time.... But I'm happy to hear that you are all in one piece and didn't break anything. Take it easy... I will be checking on you.. sorry I took so long to visit you! Sending you mucho (((HUGS)))... ~ Dee ~

    Glad you are up and about again and you also managed not to gain weight, well done. I think they older you get the more a fall hurts, I have been waiting for the snow and ice to go so I can walk outdoors again, I have really missed it. Take care and let someone else mop the floor next time, you now have a very good excuse for others to do it...

    Hi! I am glad you are up and around doing alot better. I am so Happy that you did not break any thing when you fell. I wish I could lose the weight the way you do I stepped on the scales and it said I went up and I was so careful with what I ate this past weekend plus I did quite abit of walking. We were in Philadelphia taking our daughter back to college. I have been exercising five days a week I just don't get it. Take Care ! Lots of Hugs
