Woohoo!!! Another two down which makes 4 lbs in two weeks. I couldn't be happier. Next week is going to be a challenge. I have a lot of work to do and it's hard to eat when I'm working so I am going to have to bring healthy, low calories things with me to munch on during the day.
In addition, my boyfriend is coming to spend the week with me. My children are going to CA with their dad and I have the entire week to myself. We haven't seen each other in several months because of circumstances, but he was my rock when I thought I had breast cancer. He will be supportive but he likes meals and loves for me to bake for him (I did promise).
I am going to take one day at a time. I have told him my goals and I will get through this.
Yay!!! 4 down!!!

It has been very hard for me these last few years. I have gained a ridiculous amount of weight. Most of it was from stress. Health concerns and a divorce just put me over the top.
Now that I am here, I am ready to be the person I always was. Never in my life did I think I would buy size "large". I have always been petite. I can even remember walking into a store once and the woman who ran it said to me, "I'm sorry, we don't have clothes small enough for you here."
I may never hear that again and that's really OK. I just never again want to buy anything large.
Once this weight is off, it's STAYING off. You can count on it!

Today we had a 2 hour delay because of the snow. My daughter, age almost 17 decided she didn't want to in to school. Since they are off next week for Presidents week I said it was ok (she is a straight A student). So, she decided she was going to help me today and asked what she could do. She the volunteered to go grocery shopping for me.
This was great. We made out a list of what I needed and off she went. She came back with all the things on the list and little else. No temptation, no decisions about calories, no feeling deprived because I couldn't have something.
I can't tell you how great that was. I have the food I need to keep on track and no temptations that are calling to me. She thought it was fun until I asked her how she would like to do it every week for decades. Not so much fun anymore!!
So, I made it my business to get on the treadmill again today. Haven't missed a day yet. Still hate it, but still doing it!

Just finished my treadmill walk. I have vowed to myself that no matter what else I do, I have to do at least 1/2 hour on the treadmill every day. I haven't done cardio in a long time because of health issues but there really is no excuse now. I need to get my strength back. I just have to do it if I want to lose that weight. The truth is, I really hate it but when it's over, I'm so happy I did what I needed to do.
But.....I still hate it.

Today, since I promised myself I would walk daily, I once again walked about a mile and a half. I need to build some stamina since I haven't worked out in a very long time.
After my walk (on the treadmill since it's -2 outside) I was doing some stretches and guess what, my muscles hurt!! OMG, HOORAY!!! Ok, I know that sounds weird but it does mean that I'm using them, getting them back in the shape they need to be and that little "ow" is a good thing.
I couldn't be happier about my hurting muscles!!!
