Update: pedometer's fate, the holidays, and my b-day goal

Thursday, January 03, 2008

First things first ...My pedometer is alright which I'm so thankful for. I now double check my pockets whenever I throw laundry in the washer. In the weight loss department I've done wonderfully over the holidays which is great but I'm not overwhelmed with joy about it. There were a few days when I didn't log my food at all. Also I've been really wanting to go to the gym to exercise but haven't made it there. So even though i've lost lbs I feel like I've been a bit of a slacker these last couple of weeks. So this week I'm starting anew. I'm going to get back on track with my nutrition tracking and working out.

Oh I wanted to mention today was a new milestone for me on my journey. I've lost 70 lbs total since joining sp...wow I can't even believe it myself. I'm 3.5 lbs away from changing my bmi category from obese to just overweight. To change categories is a really huge thing for me mentally considering I have been in the obese category since middle school. My goal is set a to be out of the obese category about three days before my 24th b-day...what a wonderful b-day gift to myself that will be.

Oh and I wanted to wish everyone a Happy New Year!! May great things find their way to you in 2008!

  


No! My Poor Pedometer!

Saturday, December 22, 2007


Please pray for the recovery of my pedometer. Tonight I opened the washing machine and sitting on top was my soaked step counter. I'm hoping that it just needs to dry out a bit, but a part of me is thinking that it is dead forever. I just cannot believe I did something so stupid. If this is the end of the road for my Omron pedometer, I just want to say you have served me well. In fact that pedometer is the reason why I joined Sparkpeople in the first place. So this little gadget holds a special place in my heart. Thanks for turning my life around, in the right direction.

    Let it dry out for a couple of days in the sun - or use a hair dryer. At least these options are worth a try if the DO bring back your pedometer. Good luck !

Time

Monday, December 10, 2007

I haven't had a ton of it lately, or rather should I say I haven't had much time to myself lately. Over the course of this month I've been kind of going through the motions of being a responsible adult with my numerous errands and well paying the bills (aka work). But even so I've still am consistent with my work outs and have managed to keep my eating under control so I'm proud of myself for that. Though last week I did gain a pound, I'm sure it will be gone by my wednesday weigh in. I've come to a small realization. I've read so many times that "SP is a lifestyle change and not a diet." Well I think I finally transitioned my thinking into knowing that statement is 100% truth. When I joined sparkpeople I wanted to lose weight then be healthy ...in that order. This is how I know I've transitioned so to speak. The "old me" just wanted to lose weight and didn't really care how or if it was safe. I seriously felt that I didn't have to be healthy until after I lost the weight ( how silly is that). The "new me" actually pays attention to the nutrients I eat. I take a supplement and strive stay in the recommended ranges. Also I don't freak out as much when the scale doesn't give me the number I want that day. I know as long as I'm eating healthy and moving more I will get there eventually.

My Motivation

Wednesday, November 14, 2007


So I received my "motivation" to lose the next ten pounds in the mail today. This adorable jacket will fit soon! I cannot wait to sport it out and about. I bought it at torrid on a 50% off clearance sale. Woohoo! I'm estimating that I'll be able to wear it in about a month or two. It is a torrid size 0 (10/12 plus) which makes me excited because soon I won't be able to shop there anymore. In just a few months I'll be able to wear normal sizes and walk into any clothing store not feeling like people are thinking "Did she get lost on the way to Lane Bryant?"

The future beholds wonderful things!
