Well today was day 1 of bootcamp. I did the jump start workout although I had to modify it due to the fractured foot n sit through half of it @ least i did it. I also did my quickfire challenge 100 wall push up WOW do my arms hurt

Tomorrow I go back to curves the 1st time since I fractured the foot so when I get home from there I will update my measurements. I will also post my new pic @ that time.

New Years day I went to say a dear friend (annual tradition of mimosa's) who I haven't seen in about 2 yrs due to drama that each of us have in our own lives. She is next 2 my hubby my best friend although we haven't seen each other we talk, text, & email all the time. Well the greatest feeling for me was her reaction to my weight loss. The last time she seen me I was just over 300 lbs. I forget @ times how far I've come.

It was nice to have someone remind me where I was compared to where I m & I m now so looking 4ward to where I m going

We can admire you from our perspective and be impressed - - but she was able to be fully & thoroughly impressed - - just like you deserved to be completely acknowledged for that fantastic reworking of your life and body.
I'm sooooo happy 4-U dearest friend.
God Bless You With A Continuation of Your Success Throughout 2010

    Maga, I am on the boot camp too. That was a good workout but I did have to modify it because I'm too heavy to do such high impact moves like jumping. But even when I modified it, it still got my heart rate up!
Good luck on boot camp, and at Curves tomorrow!

Well as this is my last blog for 2009, I m using as my year end confessional.

I made it thru CHRISTmas without my usual depression, but then the 27th hit. December 27th my mom b-day, this is the 4th since she passed on. As La went to her God-fathers for a cpl days, I was on my own for the most part (other then the usual care of my father & listening to his ranting about his no good wife who left him while he was in the hosp 2 1/2 yrs ago). So the depression hit & big time.

Sunday, Decided i wasn't gonna eat my way thru it & I try not to drink when I'm depressed. Sooo I decided to do some year end cleaning & rearranging my room & cleaned out my closet.
Monday same feelings so really did something stupid & cut off just over 2 inches of my hair. Was gonna cut more but had a drink instead.
Tuesday same feelings so I dyed my hair & moved all La stuff out of her room to the family room (my daughter & her other daughter have to stay with me for a mth so)
Wednesday same depression so I frosted my hair. Was gonna cut off more hair but then had a cpl drinks as to relax.
Thursday today I really feeling it really wish hubby was home but not for another 3 to 4 mths (when will he learn)

the good thing is that I m not staying home tonight I m going to my brothers n spending the evening with his family n his wives family

I really need to find another way to deal with depression but @ least my insurance starts tomorrow so prayerfully I b bac on my meds by the end of Jan

Not sure what hubby is gonna think of the new hair. Most ppl think I've lost my mind cause that was the longest my hair been in years.

    Oh Maga . . . . wish I could have lived closer. Just looking at my old face would have made you burst out laughing!!!! That would end your depression right then & there.
and if that didn't work
we could have both worked on your new hair style. :)

Everything sounded good that you wrote but I strongly encourage you to stay away from the alcohol ! ! ! ! ! That stuff sucks.
It's a Depressant!
I don't usually get depressed but if I drink too much I get super depressed, so I don't drink anymore at all. Don't need to be looking for extra problems, right?
Hang in there Sweetie. You're gonna make it.
Write to me when you're down. Here's my email:
I'll either make you laugh or something!
If you're depressed - - on the Subject line write URGENT so I'll look at that one first.
Right now I'm over 300 emails behind (because I've been so busy with Phil and his surgery recovery) . . . . . . . but with the URGENT I will easily spot it and open that one First !

    I see a difference. I have come to the conclusion that when it comes to weight and body image (as well as food portions) most of us have "broken eyes". I'm glad that photographs can show us the error of our ways. Love ya, Dawn emoticon

    Difference is definitely noticeable. Our brains take a while to catch up with our bodies, IDK and it's very annoying that's why most people notice changes before we do and then we don't believe them when they tell us. Congrats!

    Guess what? You now have a waist that I bet you didn't even know you had. I can't wait for the day that my chest sticks out farther than my stomach.

Well I've been taking it easy (well taking it easy for me) since I fractured my foot.

Well I've decided its time to get back to the gym this week weather permitting. Time to start using the wii again, as it was meant. Now that the snow is gone I'm getting back on the bike.

Say a prayer as I begin my routines agian.

    I took it easy the whole week of Christmas, using the excuse that I would get back at it the day after Christmas. Well now I have a health realated problem preventing me from doing so. Have fun exercising! I always feel better about myself when I get back into my routines :) hope you had a wonderful christmas!

    We all have to get moving again. What is this precious little girl's name? That twinkle in her eye makes me think she is just looking for something to get into.
