Fitness/Health Goals for 2010...Starting Pic and Measurements

Tuesday, January 05, 2010

1. Track everything I eat! This will keep hitting my daily ranges and keep me on track for other weekly goals.
2. To exercise at least 2 hours per day five days a week until I hit 180, then reevaluate.
3. Eat more fruit, veg and whole grains. Eat less processed/fast foods. Got to be proactive on this one...too easy to backslide. Plus I like the bump in energy when I eat well!

Starting weight is 199 with waist at 36.5 and hips at 41.25. Look forward to those numbers all being smaller after Battle #7! I'm polishing my sword in preparation. Hold on, I mean I'm getting ready for the fight ahead. Come on, get your heads out of the gutter :)

    WOW, you look fantastic! If you stick with those goals (all of which are fairly simple, yet key to losing weight), you'll be at 180 in no time :o)

I'm very proud of you and know that you have determination and the mindset to keep heading for your goals. You are so worth it.

Seriously, how much for a bag of milk?

Monday, January 04, 2010

Happy new year everyone! I wanted my 1st post of 2010 to be on my goals but that'll have to wait. I came across this and couldn't believe it. I mean the bag seems sturdy enough. Maybe it's not so strange considering milk used to be delivered/sold in glass containers! Anyway, check it.

Plus it comes with a free pitcher.

All for a whopping .94 cents! I put the half gallon jug I normally buy (about $1.60) back and gave it a try. Tastes like...milk! Who would've thought going green could be good for wallets and landfills? Anyone else seen these around?

    Have not seen it yet. We do buy the mini-milks for the kids which come in box-type bags.

Interesting find.

    Great idea! Since the cardboard containers of milk at my grocery store always leak, I bet the bag would be better. And more convenient in the plastic pitcher than trying to pry open the spout on the cardboard containers!

    I have never seen that brand but we used to get milk in those bags years ago. I think it came in 2 or 3 packs.

    How cool is that! Does it come in non-fat? Or, even others. DH drinks 2%, I'm a non-fat person. I would by it in a heartbeat!

Logical Loss Fans - New 12 Week Challenge!

Monday, December 28, 2009

Meant to get the word out sooner because I think today is the last day to register for the challenge. Between this and upcoming Battle #7 how can you not lose? Details over at


It's not the end of the world...that's in 2012

Sunday, December 27, 2009

The chances are slim to none of me getting to 180 by year's end, which is only 5 days away, (woohoo, who else is gonna get wasted?) but I'm not that worried about that. It's been a great year! I'm truly grateful for the chance to share what in the past was a very personal struggle with all of you. I haven't weighed in for the week but I'm confident that before the year's out I'll be 198 or less. May not sound that great but considering I started the year at 238: that's about 40 pounds down (someone check my math).
Will I get there...I have no doubt. I've changed my relationship with food and that's what did me in in the past. It's not perfect and I don't think it ever will be, but it's better. I look at food more like the fuel it is that my powers my days and helps me shape my world.
I like to believe we're all works in progress and until we no longer draw breath we can change what we see on the canvas before us. So to all of my Sparkbuds and you avid reader, I wish the very best in 2010. May we all get closer or completely crush those goals that have eluded us.

Others Who Have Lost 40 Pounds (Motivation):

Mike C, Vancouver, Canada

Nia Vardalos

This Guy

Or to put it another way, I put down what grandma picked up.

It doesn't have to be this way, seriously. Good luck!

    Hey man, 40 lbs. lost will be awesome! You have made great strides. I know how you feel about missing your goal, because I did the same thing myself and I know that I should have accomplished it, but I will continue, as I am certain that you will and in the end both of us will get to where we want to be. You encouraged me, and I hope to reciprocate. emoticon

    you've made such strides! Well done. So exciting that you have found some peace with food. Me, I can really associate with the girl and the tube of Oreos!
There is no time limit on the weight loss. It's always so hard to remember that slow losses are the winning ones.
It's been so nice getting to know you. Enjoy your New Years! See you soon,

  Thanks - awesome blog, reminded me to be proud of my nearly "50" in one year - less than 5 lbs per month but I am wearing smaller clothes than I was last year at this time and I feel so much better. Got to get crackin when the new year comes around and get rid of another 40. I can do it, we can do it! Good Luck in 2010. emoticon
