7 inches

Friday, March 28, 2014

Well today I finally measured myself and I have lost 7 inches. Woo HOOO..getting somewhere. I had a perfect day yesterday. That means, I stuck to my nutrition and fitness goals, and today well, let's just say it won't be a perfect day, but I will be getting a lot of stuff done even if I don't spend 1.5 hours working out. I went for a quick walk, but got to get stuff done around the house. It's such a beautiful day, I wll probably walk more later this afternoon..Happy Friday!

YAY

Thursday, March 27, 2014

OK..i got into a workout shirt I bought sometime ago and it was too small. this morning I thought, just try it on! So I did. It is a tad tight but it FITS..YAY. I think this is a better way for me to go than to weigh myself. Somehow; if I try on something that didn't fit, and it still does not quite fit, I can say..just a little more, just a few more days and I will be in these pants..or top...and I don't get discouraged. If I get on the scale and it doesn't say what I want it to say, I get discouraged. So I know I am on the right track..I am happy for ME!

Scale is finally moving!

Friday, March 21, 2014

On this time around, I am in my second month, and the scale is finally starting to move. When I first joined Spark, many years ago..I was sooooo out of shape. I couldn't even do 10 minutes on the elliptical. I was at about 184 I think. I did well and got myself down about 20 pounds. I hit my 164 plateau and now it's just been up and down from there. So NOW this morning, I am finally at 165 (down 4 lbs.) and still motivated as ever.. After the first 3 weeks of the scale just not doing anything, I was getting discouraged and even had a melt down. However..I kept listening to all of you who said, don't give up! So I didn't; and this time I am committed to reaching my goal. Thank you spark people! I look forward to loggin on each morning to visit!

Better today

Monday, March 10, 2014

Thank you for your support yesterday! It means a lot knowing I am not out here drowning without a life raft..I was able to stay on track yesterday..1000 calories and a 2 hour bike ride (1/2 of it being uphill with a head wind.) The ride home was really challenging yesterday! I actually had to walk some of the way because of the 40 mile wind gusts. I was really pissed off yesterday but I stayed on track! I really, really wanted a beer after my ride but didn't have one. So today I feel much better and am going to try to adjust my calorie intake again. 1300 calories is just too much for me. I have to cut back. I WISH I could eat the 1500 they say on the spark recommendation! I guess it's just a getting older thing. Anyway, thanks again everyone.
