I've been a black junkie for years. Since High school. Black this, black that. It has to be black. I may step out and wear some gold, grey, brown, or blue, but that's not all the time. I'm black to the heart. All my yoga pants are black with a slash of color here and there. My girl friend said to me. For a woman who has great taste in fashion at times, and shoes, belts and what nots. You sure do dress dark and cold. I think black is my color. Not because it makes you feel slim, because over the years. It has made me look 20 pounds heavier. I just love black. SO in 2008. I started to step out a little and start dressing in brighter and lighter colors. Now then.
When I lose my last 20+ pounds. WHEN is the WORD! Will I still be crazy about black, or will I leave my black in the past. I don't know, but it sure does have my mom on the fence a little. When I told her. A black wedding dress would be nice. A black wedding dress. She said.. Girl.. You need Prozac if you are really thinking about a black wedding dress. I mean really why not. I'm not pure down there any more. I've had 3 kids, and been married before. WHY WEAR WHITE, OFF WHITE, or any COLOR that is LIGHT.
She said, your vows will be doomed. Well doomed they should be. Because I saw this black dress that says.. LINDSAY! I'm the one you have been looking for. SO girl.. BUY ME.. Since I'm not going for that big ole fluffy deal of a dress. Long, lean, hugging the body, black dress... Hell that's me.
But I promise my mom. 09 is the year I step into some more color. I've worn red a time or two, and a little pink. Hey.. I've even done some sky like blue.. Why can't I have the black wedding dress, and still keep on rocking the black? Even my nurse wear is dark. COME ON!
Like I said. 09 is the year I step into some color. I don't think I'm ready, but I'm going to make sure I get this love for black from head to toe out of my system before 09 is up.

Fire up them abs, thighs, and arms. I've been working it out baby. I know I can do this.. I'm not going to stop until I get 20 freaking pounds off my rear end. I have to keep on pushing myself, and I have 2 hours planned on my bike tonight. Hubs wants to go riding. I'm not too crazy about the motor cycle like I use to be.. He goes on to tell me. Girl, you look good, and you look just fine.. Now I have to do some more cardio, and I'm up for working out with turbo jam all this week. I have to let my spark friend know.. I'm up for turbo jam 5 days this week.

Summer is 113 days away. I have to get the rest of this body in shape. Each year I tell myself. I'm going to have that summer body, and I'm going to be hot. We will be doing a lot of traveling this summer. SC and to IL. I just don't want to go out of shape, and every year. I tell myself. I have so many days until summer. The 4th is coming up, and the family is coming in, and I do love to hear the.. You lost more weight comments, and how good I look. I have to keep those comments rolling, but the comment I'm looking for this year is.. Girl have you lost enough. I get it from the hubs to be all the time, but I haven't gotten it from a family member yet. I want to lose more, and Monday.... I start a new program at the gym, and hopefully.. This program will get the weight off in time, but a smooth fashion. With out all the stress. I'm going to start this new class called.. Balance and fit. From my understanding. It's a yoga like class, but you are using a 5 pound ball weight. Ball weigh range from 2 on up to 10 pounds, and I'm so ready to take on this class. Since I've been working with weights for a long time. The instructor said. I should go for a 5 pound weight. I'm all for the 5 pound weight no big deal. I know I can do this.. But to be in this class for an hour is going to kill me. She said. She reach deep with balance and fitness, and your core is the center of the whole program. Your spine,core, legs, and quads are major keys in this fitness class. I'm so ready. I can reach my goals with this class, and I'm willing to give it a shot. I'm sick of running, walking, jogging, and spinning. But I'm never to sick to dance. Well, I'm ready. 113 days until summer.

It will be 2 years next week, since I've started my life style change.
A long haul I must say, and it's still a long road of progress. I feel good.
I'm loving the skin I am in, and I feel fully alive for once in my life.
Haven't felt this good in a while, and I'm really loving it. My weight is going to
bounce all over the boards, but I do understand.. This is what it is, but it don't have to be that. I can get up and put my best foot forward, and do what is right for me. No more looking back. The fat Lindsay was a thing of the past. Now! I'm a better Lindsay. With all my flaws. But I'm making my life better for my family.
I have a wedding to plan, and dreams with this man I love ahead and a new out look on life. I love my body, and I love dressing this new body. Who don't love dressing less fat....... I'm going to be under 140. I'm making it my business to end this weight gain. To end the roller coaster of drama and weight gain madness. We lace up our shoes.. One string at a time. We tie them up, and walk out the door. Getting those miles in.. Jumpping around in those classes at the gym. All for a better life. Shopping for the best foods, and thinking before we buy those items. We even read the back of the label to see what's really in this can good or on the back of the box. Is this the better buy, or a poor buy. Choices, and making a better way of life for yourself. That's me. I feel good. I've known all the things to lose the weight, and I've known them for years. Having a degree in fitness, nursing, and nutrition should have paid off a long time. Now it's paying off. Should have paid off a long time ago. But it's better now than never..

140.4 this morning, and it's Sunday. I feel pretty good. I ate really good yesterday, so this is real weight loss and not flu weight loss. I'm going to try to keep this weight loss here, and I'm going to record it on my tracker.. 140.4 going for a walk later on today. I feel up to it. I need to start getting into the swing of things full again. I'm trying to see 137 by the end of March.
