Last night was the last Zumba class...but almost 70 people have signed up, saying they're interested in another class...hope that means they'll work hard at bringing someone in to do it! I really enjoyed it!
I'm going to try a new class today. I think it's called ABC cardio. Not sure what it's all about...I'd like to do three classes a week. I've been doing kick and sculpt on Mondays. And now Zumba's over. Have to work in swimming, once I get a suit that fits...keep changing it up! No boredom here! :D

Echelle was right...eat more, lose again! I started eating snacks and the weight's coming off again! I was stuck between 194 and 191 for 2 months. Only change...2 small snacks a day! And this morning I was 187!
So hard to wrap my head around it. I worry as I'm eating the snack...worry when I get on the scale...but am please, so far, with the results! :D
Had my second cortisone shot last Friday. Although it's not 100% pain-free, like last time, it is MUCH better. Very manageable. I can sleep at night, and that's a good thing!
My sister came over on Saturday and we had a BLAST together! She went with me when I got my nose pierced and then we worked out together...and then out to dinner with my friend, Jean. I haven't laughed that hard or that much in a long, long time! Next time, I'm going to her gym! :D

My first goal was a size 12. As I approached it, I changed it to a 10. As that approached, I changed it to an 8. When I hit the longest plateau ever (about 10 weeks), I began to wonder if I should still go on for an 8. Maybe 10 was good enough. But I stuck with it. I persevered. I eventually broke the plateau and I'm losing again. Slowly, but that's ok.
And now, although comfortably in 10's and not even close to 8's yet, again I find myself wondering about changing my goal again. I don't think it's unhealthy thinking. But wanted to run it by here, for some truly neutral opinions. I'm about 5' 4" and I weigh 188.8 pounds, as of this morning. I think I'll be in 8's in about 10 pounds. That would put me at around 179, still a significant weight. Thinking I'd hit size 6 around 165-170....still not a light weight, by any stretch. What do you think? Am I in my right mind or am I just afraid to switch from losing weight to maintenance?

My longest plateau ever is finally over! I dipped under 190 this morning!!!! Since the middle of November, I've been hovering around the same weight...194-191...and this morning, finally, 189.2! Feels SO good!!! I'm so pumped!

After another nearly sleepless night, I'm off to the doctor in a few minutes. I'm anxious and hopeful that I'll get another shot of cortisone. I don't relish the idea of being shot full of steroids, but I really did like the results of the last one.
My sister, a nurse, suggested I ask about Ultram for pain management. So I will ask and see what they say. I'm cautiously optimistic that I'll be feeling much better in a few days! (Took about 3 days after the shot last time...)
All time (since having children, I mean) low on the scale this morning. 190. So darn close to finding my 180's again! Yes! I've been hovering around the low 190s for like 2 months now! Went from a size 12 to 10 during that time, though, so I do realize I was converting fat to muscle...and all my 10s are fitting more loosely now. Not loose enough to warrant trying on the 8s again...but soon...relatively speaking, of course! ;)
