wow, what a difference a few years makes!

Wednesday, September 11, 2013

I was going through some older pictures of myself to add to a digital picture frame. I never realized how much weight I have lost. You really do not notice the weight loss if it is gradual, like mine has been. I have lost 25 pounds in the 1 1/2 years. It may be slow, but it is always in the right directions, never gaining back more than 2 pounds....

Anyway, I saw the picture and could not believe that it was really me...

    We've all been there. I read some place that it takes us 12 weeks to even see the difference in ourselves. Congrats on loosing it and keeping it off. Slow and steady seems to be the way to go.

No artificial sweeteners for a week!

Tuesday, August 27, 2013

Really. My hubby went to the Dr last Tues to be told how bad artificial sweetners really are for you. He brought home an aritcle how diet soda makes you gain more weight. because of the artificial sweetners. So I gave it up. So, now my coffee has creamer (no sugar or splenda) and my ice tea has lemon.... but I am not adding anything else to sweeten. I can actually say, that after a week, I don't really miss it?!? If you asked me 2 weeks ago, I never would have thought that I could do it, but it wasn't hard!

7 great things that happened to me in the past year!

Thursday, August 22, 2013

In reading the Chris Powell Book "Choose More, Lose, More for Life" he talks about transformation! True transformation. Understand that we need to love our selves. One of his exercises in the book is to list 7 great things that happened in the last past year to me. Here is my list:

1. started my journey to transformation!
2. Trained for a 5k. Participated in 2! (ran 28 mins! Not the entire 5k, but without stopping!)
3. Celebrated my 4 year wedding anniversary
4. Completed a major work project ahead of schedule
5. Visited my In-laws in Fl (small side trip to Key West)
6. Grown closer with my family
7. Lost 20 pounds!

Now, these may not seem like great things to many people, but they are my great things and they help me to see how blessed I really am!

    I should clarify, I ran 28 mins, but it took 41 mins to finish the 5k. This is a major accomplishment, because my ACL was replaced 2 yrs ago and I was only cleared to run in the last year. No pain in my knee at all from running!
