I had a great WI last week and lost 2 lbs. Finally! I'm 1.6 lbs. away from goal. These last 5+ lbs. have really enjoyed their time with me, but it's time to see them go. I have my WI tonight and of course I'm stressing!! I'm very happy with my weight, my clothes size and the way I feel. I've told myself that basically I'm where I need to be and I just need to maintain (another story in itself). I joined a C25K program @ a local park that starts in 2 weeks and I've been walking 3 miles at least 3 x a week. I feel great! BUT - I know if I don't do well tonight, I'll be disappointed. AND - if I get to goal, I'll wonder, should I have set my goal lower, will I be able to maintain??? No wonder we gain weight. No wonder there's so many "diets" & "plans" and websites and books.

I hope that I'll be able to just make this "journey" I've been on the past 6 months a normal part of my life and not make it such an issue. Anyway good luck to me tonight and to everyone else close to goal!!

I had my WI last night @ WW. I went down .8. What's a girl gotta do to loose a pound! The past 5 weeks I've only lost 1.8 lbs. I'm still 3.6 lbs. away from goal. I've been thinking of all kinds of ways to get there (and most of them are not too healthy). I've decided I need to stop focusing on the goal and just enjoy my progress. There was something pretty good in the weekly handout from last night. It was a "10 second Point Plus pitch" and the lady said "The WW journey is not about getting skinny. It's about adopting a healthy lifestyle and changing the behaviors that cause you to gain weight in the first place" So that hit home! I'm going to keep doing what I'm doing - P+ tweaked, walk my 3 miles when I can (I'm usually averaging 3x a week) and get ready to do my C25K that I signed up for@ the local park that starts in April. I'm going to enjoy all my new spring clothes and when I reach my goal, I'm going to enjoy maintaining!!

    No need to be disappointed, its all progress! This week I only lost .2 but after such a big loss a couple weeks ago because of being sick keeping it off is awesome! You will get there and when you do it will be all that much nicer!!!
When I seem to be stuck I will change up my routines food and exercise and it usually gets me going again!
Keep up the good work you are almost there!!!!!

    Please don't be too disappointed, as that is still a good loss. I was gaining and losing 4 pounds the whole time on PP+, then after going back to momentum I lost 4 of the 5 pounds and then got stuck for like 4-5 weeks, eek. I finally say a 12 ounce lost and felt amazing.

Heart Attacks

Monday, February 28, 2011

Well, I had an interesting weekend. My sister called me early Saturday morning from the hospital. She had rushed her husband to the hospital with chest pains. He ended up having a heart attack @ the hospital (best place to have one I suppose). He's only 53 and in very good shape, but he has a family history of heart problems (father died in his 40's). Then I get an e-mail yesterday from my High School group (reconnected on Facebook) and one of our class members died of a heart attack (50 yrs. old!) Don't know anything about the HS member's health.

My brother-in-law is doing fine and will be able to go home today. It just gets you thinking about how important it is to maintain a healthly lifestyle. Even though my brother-in-law had an attack so young, I believe the fact that he maintained a healthy lifestyle is the reason he is going home (feeling pretty good since they cleared a double blockage). Anyway - take care of your body - it's the only one you got!!

    So sorry for your brother in law and your sister she must be very worried, my brother had a heart attack at 50 he is a smoker he is much better now also my DD husbands mother had a heart attack and she is a very healthy person only 57, now she is so worried it will happen again it is very sad. Yes we really do have to look after our self and I think go to the doctors for a check up every 6mths. All the best to your family.

Size 10!!

Thursday, February 24, 2011

I weighed in @ WW last night and lost .6. I am 4.4 lb.s away from my goal of 46.6 lbs.!! It's going a little slower than I would like, but hey, I'll take it. Less than 5 lbs. !! I wanted to be @ goal weight by 3/16, but I'm not going to focus on that date. I'll be ready for Spring! I went shopping last night and I can wear a size 10! I haven't worn that size since before I was married. It was a good feeling.

    Awesome!! Such a wonderful thing to celebrate! I swear, the scale is definitely a great tool for goal-setting and accountability, but I still think that there is no better feeling that fitting into that awesome size we were shooting for! No number on the scale feels that good! That is pretty much the best feeling ever! Go you!!! :-)

I have a name for the size that I love the most - it's my "holy grail jeans" size. If I can fit in those, I know I'm golden! Regardless of what the scale says, those never fail to make my day! :-)

Good job and keep it up! You're a rockstar!

Goal Weight - Nothing to Wear!

Wednesday, February 23, 2011

I haven't blogged in a while and a lot has happened. I joined WW back in September and have lost 35.6 lbs. I find the weekly weigh in my motivation. I haven't missed a weigh in and have only had 1 gain (.4) in five months. I'm 5 lbs. away from my goal and I want to reach it by mid-March so I can buy some new Spring clothes. I officially have nothing to wear! I've cleaned out the closet and bagged everything up for the kidney foundtion. I've only got a couple of pairs of pants/shirts to get me through February and then I'm going shopping!

Good luck to me tonight for my weekly weigh-in!

    Thanks! I have a 30% off coupon for Kohl's so I might even go tonight after my WW meeting. I live in GA so it's getting warm here. We probably only have about 2-3 weeks of cold weather!
