When, when, when!!

Thursday, March 27, 2008

So, I've lost 12 lbs. Yes, that's great but when is it going to show?? No one has really noticed that I've lost weight. My fat clothes are a little looser but that's about it. No big wows...just same old, same old.

I'm really happy that I'm losing the weight and feeling better. I have a little more energy and am sleeping much better but still, I want to feel thinner. I want to be uncomfortable in my clothes because they are to big but that hasn't happened yet.

Sigh....I'm really happy for my friends here that are doing so well but I want to see results too!!!

Rant over :(

    Amen, sistah!

Well I've only lost five in three weeks, so of course, no one's going to notice that. In fact, if my scale didn't say so, I wouldn't have known it either.

Thanks for the comment on my blog. Let's keep each other motivated for MAY.

    Hey, I've lost 38 lbs and I really don't think anyone noticed anything until Xmas time when I'd gone from 193-166. So that was 27lbs. Your face looked thinner from the first week and I think you're doing great. Concentrate on the fact that you're healthier and if you *hadn't* done this, you'd be wearing the same clothes but they'd be really tight on you!

    the comment below is exactly what happened to me. at 20 pounds lost i got a whole bunch of compliments and could see the difference. at 30 i looked the same. just hang in there. when you hit the 20 mark you'll definately see it.

    Most of the people who are every day parts of my life didn't notice I had lost weight until after I'd lost 20 lbs! Some didn't notice at all when I'd lost 30 lbs!! Then I got some new clothes that actually fit me and all of a sudden everyone was noticing. I think the folks that see us every day can't see the gradual change. Others that only see you every month or more may notice more quickly. My husband definitely noticed, though.

Keep your eyes on how far you have come and not on how far you have to go! You have lost 4 cans of crisco, girlfriend. 4 cans into the trash, out the door, NEVER to return!! That is a HUGE accomplishment. Your body will eventually catch up with you - especially as you increase your activity levels and STing. I highly encourage STing at our ages. It will make a huge difference in your inches!!

4 cans, WOW!

    Stay positive. My ex-boyfriend noticed quickly, but friends didn't notice till I lost about twenty pounds, then it was like the light went on for them, lol. So I guess they never noticed that I had gained weight, lol, till I lost it. Maybe that is what is happening with you too?

    Stay positive and keep working at it. The scale will move down it takes time and patient. Try working out a little longer and see if that helps you. Stop by my page and keep me posted. God Bless Starr

Yes, I still hate exercise

Wednesday, March 26, 2008

I just got back from walking around the lake. It is close to where I live and it is 3 miles around. Today was the first nice day that I actually could be outside since last fall. I hate the treadmill but that's been it because I don't have to worry about the weather when it's right in the bedroom.

As I was walking around the lake I called my friend Dawn. "Why am I doing this again?" I asked...."Oh yeah, I'm fat!" She kept saying that it was great that I was outside and walking the beautiful lake and that I would commune with nature and just love it when I was done.

Well, I did love it when I was done BECAUSE I WAS DONE!! It was cold by the lake, the trees are still without leaves and brown and no, I didn't enjoy it but it was better than the treadmill. For me that means the cavity was better than the root canal but I still hate them both!!

Ok, I am making fun of myself right now because I still hate to exercise but.....I want to lose this weight more than anything now so that means I gotta do what I gotta do!

The best part of today's work out?? It's done!!!! (and I'm going to sleep great tonight!)

    I am still laughing out loud from your last line, lol. I know it is hard to get going, but you really should be feeling good after exercise, but I guess your right the best part of exercise is when your finished, lol.

    You are too funny! I have to really push myself to go walk alone. I get bored walking on the treadmill even at the gym where there are other people to talk to. I don't want to walk alone out in town or at home in the country cause it's boring too. Hubby tells me he's walked enough at work and he's too busy to go so guess what... that leaves me to go alone!

Do you have anyone that you can walk with? That might help to break the boredom. I might be ok with an iPod to listen to... but I doubt it. So, I'll just go to the gym and laugh with my friends that joined with and talk about how bored I used to get without them!

I'm such a loser

Sunday, March 23, 2008

Today is my weigh in day. I had hoped that I would hit that 10 lb mark but was a little worried. We took my daughter out for her birthday (17!) last night and although I was careful, it's not that easy in a Thai restaurant. I was concerned that there was hidden salt and some of the sauces were a little sweet which indicated sugar. The moment of truth came this morning. Did I make that 10 lb mark?? NO

I hit 12 lbs!!! HAHAHAHAHA YES!! Much to my shock, this week was a 2 1/2 lb weight loss. I actually exercised a little less but when I did exercise I stepped it up just a bit and made it harder. Looks like it paid off!!

So, go right ahead and call me a loser. I don't mind really, because I sure am!!!!

doing the happy dance......

    haha, great story, Gayl! Congratulations! As you said on my blog, we're both in the same boat of having these mysterious weight losses, despite eating outside of our program for a day or two. Though, I'd venture to say that an entire cheesecake, big big of chips and large chocolate bar has it ALL OVER a Thai meal! *g* But hey, let's do the Snoopy Dance and take it where we can get it!!! Yay you! Lynn

I won't say I'm not just a wee bit disappointed that I didn't make 10 lbs lost this week but hey, 9 lbs isn't bad either! I will just have to wait another week and hope that's all it will take.

Another thing I've been wondering. With nearly 10 lbs gone you would think that my clothes would be at least a little loose but that's not the case. I was really wondering about that and then realized why. These are my fat clothes. I have been wearing them a long time and even 10 lbs ok 9 lbs heavier I was still stuffing myself into them. Now they fit.

So, losing weight is still the battle. I still must lose more to really make a noticeable difference. Once my fat clothes are big, they are gone. No one has really noticed the weight loss yet because no one can tell. The next 10 lbs will make a huge difference.

Just watch me!!!!!!!!!!!

    First of all, thanks for the encouragement you left on my page. I wanted to comment on tossing away the fat clothes. I find that this works very well and even better if you are someone who is extremely thrifty and does not like to spend money. Once they are gone my motivation goes up to at least not gain it back. I like the positive way in which you "blog". You write well.

    Go for you, Gayllynne! There is nothing like baggy clothes to give one hope and you will be arriving there so soon! Congrats on the loss, so far. That's 3 cans of crisco!!! That is my mental image of the fat I lost.

    Hey! Nine pounds is nothing to sneeze at! At least you're not lugging those 9 extra pounds around and it sure beats having stayed the same or gained!!!

Don't you worry--soon EVERYONE will be coming up to you and asking for the secret to your success. Of course, coming to the gym for yoga wouldn't hurt either!

    Whoa! A nine pound loss is GREAT! It will start showing, so don't give up. Isn't amazing how easy the weight is to gain - and how hard it is to lose. I can take 3 weeks to lose 2 pounds and gain it back in one weekend.

Keep up the great work!

    Hi there and congrats on your 9 lbs that's really good. Your clothes will eventually start to feel looser It takes time. It took me about 15 lbs before I dropped a dress size and it may be the same for you. Just keep working hard you can do it. Stop by my page and let me know how you are doing. God Bless Starr

I know I haven't been myself for a few days. I have just been feeling "blah" and really didn't know why. I think I have figured out part of it. I have had a terrible ear infection and was on antibiotics for 10 days. In reading up I discovered that one of the symptoms of this is sleep problems. I really didn't get a good nights sleep for over a week.

Now that I finished the pills on Wed., last night I went to bed at 10 pm (very early for me) and didn't get up this morning until 8:30!!! I slept straight through. I feel so much better now that I just might go upstairs and get on that damed treadmill!!!

I really do believe this contributed to my problem. Luckily I never went off the diet and hope that I have a loss on Sunday. If not, I'm ok about it because I'm doing the best that I can.

Thanks to everyone for their support!
