Warning: A rant is coming on!! Have you loss a bunch of weight and got rude comments about it? I did. How much did you lose? WOW, that much and then you get the look. You know, the one, where they look you up and down. I love this comment I got from my MIL..."Wow, you look good but now you look sick" What? I look good but sick? People can be mean and judgmental. I get to the point where I find myself fibbing about exactly how much weight I loss. I find that people are less supportive than being supportive. Are they jealous? Maybe. I don't know but don't give me an attitude b/c I've decided to do something about my weight and you chose not to.

I've been to many websites and many sparkpages over the past few weeks and seen many "before" and "after" photos. I've come to a conclusion that I want honest answers/opinions about. Here it is...
I've notice that people who lost weight by exercising by elliptical gliders, bikes, stair masters, etc. (no running) look good.
Then you see the photos of people who use running as their main exercise. Now they look GREAT. It seems they managed to shed those "fat" rolls better then those people who don't run.
So, the questions is this--do you think running helps burn the fat and help get rid of the fat (belly fat, rolls on the back, "thunder" thighs, etc.) or do you think they just have some kick ass metabolism?? Do you enjoy running?

I've been away. My husband got back from a deployment and I totally lost it. I stopped everything. My elliptical glider broke and it took a month to get it fixed. So, while it was broken I took it as an excuse to screw off. I ate crappy. I weighed 170 on Christmas. 100 pounds gone! Then I screwed off. I gained 20 pounds back and I feel it. I feel the fat rolls, the out of breath feeling from not exercising daily, I feel sleepy. I got tired of counting calories. I got tired (even after the elliptical glider got fixed) of working out. I got tired of all of it. Now, I looked at myself last night in the mirror and thought, "what are you doing?" It felt so good to go shopping and actually find cute clothes. I don't want to go back to wearing and buying whatever is available for bigger gals. The weight will come off. I just need to get back in the habit. Off I go...work out this morning...1 hour on the elliptical! I'm actually looking forward to it!!

Well, I have to admit, I haven't been very motivated lately. I've been trying to lose weight since January and lost a ton. Now, that it's November, I can feel myself getting less motivated. I'm still working out 4 days a week but, boy, do I have to push myself. #sigh# I'm hoping this is a phase and I'll get myself out of the "self-composed slump" soon.

It's been a while since I posted a blog. I'm currently 11 pounds away from losing 100 pounds! Wow, I cannot wait until I hit that mark! I'm so proud that I have accomplished this weight loss. I feel so much better about myself. I'm starting to like me again. For so long I've been hard and disappointed in myself. I couldn't believe I allowed myself to get so heavy. Now, with a weight loss, my feelings are changing! I had some really HARD days and struggles the last year but it's worth it! 100 pound weight loss, here I come!
