Ok, in the last 6 months I have lost 16 lbs and reclaimed my life in so many ways. I have another 10 lbs to go, and I am willing to be patient. It is coming off really slowly, but that's ok. For the most part. But when I recently rode 60 miles on a damn bicycle....that's 4 and a half hours in a bike seat...and instead of losing a lb or two, GAINED two lbs....I got pissed. Have not exercised since (one week) and have been eating horrible. As a result, I have now gained a total of four lbs. So ok, I am done acting out. I am still pissed off but I am headed to the gym to work out my frustration there. And I am going to load up on fruit and veggies and healthy stuff on the way home, so I will resume better eating habits. Sometimes I hate doing the right thing. But I refuse to undo all my hard, slooooow work in a matter of weeks. So, here I go, back on track. Hrumph.

Bootcamp still "owns" me 3 days a week, the gym another 2. Weight loss is ever so slow, but for once I am not measuring success by a number on the scale. I know I am dropping inches like crazy and people are noticing the weight loss so I guess I am gaining muscle and losing inches, even if the pounds are stubbornly not going away! However I feel stronger, more fit, calmer, happier with my body, more confident. I guess that's pretty good, even if the scale refuses to budge! Everything in it's own time. I am happy with the progress I've made. And I will stick to it until the scale matches the rest of me!

Well I am starting week 4 of my 10 week bootcamp session. I completed the 6 week session so I guess I am really on week 10, with 6 more to go! I have lost an additional 3 pounds, for a total of 11 since starting the camp. It's been slow, but I am definitely feeling stronger and more energetic and my clothes fit better. It's all good. I feel I am finally back on a healthy track after many months of falling off the wagon. How are you all doing out there? Hope things are going well for everyone...it truly is a journey...

Well I finished the first session of boot camp. Six weeks, three days a week, 60 very intense minutes. Final results: I lost 7.5 lbs, 1.5% body fat, and a total of 4" from my waist, butt and thighs. Yahoo!!
Next week, I start a 10 week boot camp class. My goal: to lose another 10-12 lbs, another 2% body fat, and 5 more inches off my bod....
I have also committed to doing 60 min of aerobic exercise an additional 2 days a week, eat more fiber, and drink more water.
So here we go...hoorah!!

I've been gone awhile and off track. Currently I am enrolled in a 6 week boot camp that is 3X per week. It's been brutal (in a good way!!) Just signed up for another 10 weeks. Been going to the gym another 2 days a week consistently now. I had gained 8 lbs from what I last weighted on my tracker, but I have now lost that extra 8 lbs and am hoping/working/expecting to continue to lose. It's good to see all the folks from before I lost my way are still here, still working hard and still as wonderful and supportive as ever! I so appreciate all of you, this website, and all the wonderful support I have received. May we all have great success in attaining our goals. I am thankful to be able to reconnect with several of you and look forward to the road ahead!
