my weekly weigh in:

Friday, September 11, 2009

well i'm down a bit, not much mind you a bit.... i'm down .2. i just am thankful i wasn't up. i'm on this journey for me and each step i take in the right direction is one step closer to my goal. so as i have said before baby steps are what it takes to get there and as my loss this week shows, all good things will come to us just in baby steps. i want to thank all my spark friends old and new for their help on this journey. you guys make each day a blessed one. as i sit with my cup of coffee and read my spark mail and collect points each morning i look forward to what each has to share and what i can learn from each. we have taught each other so much and i will continue to sip my coffee with each of you each morning. god bless you all. michelle.

last chance day!

Thursday, September 10, 2009

here i sit the day before a weigh in. i'm feeling confident that i did all i could do this week. my food was great, i'm going to go over my exercise, and i'm feeling smug. of course we all know what that could mean. yes, guys stay the same or worse, for some unknown reason gain. so the scales will tell the tale. at least on that front. but as i say again, i'm feeling confident. so if no change on scales, oh well no change.

well i have to be off to the dmv. i have let my license expire. old age getting the best of me. four years is a long time. i need to keep better track of this kind of stuff. i'm also heading to the grocery store to stock up for the next week. so till next time. just rember one step at a time in all things. we will get there.

    Also, don't psych yourself out! You may be pleasantly suprised with your weighin, and if not, you still know you did an amazing job. Keep it up!

    Hi Michelle,

After my first month at Curves, it was time to weigh in and take my measurements. I had consistently kept my calories on the low end of my range and had been exercising for the first time in forever. I expected to see some big numbers...at least 10 pounds. When the scale said just a couple of pounds, I almost had a stroke! I was so upset!! If that was all I had to measure my month's efforts, I may have given up.

Fortunately for me, they do a whole lot more measuring than just on the scale at Curves. They measured my body and the percentage of actual fat that I lost. If I remember correctly, I lost over 6 inches and 6.55 pounds of body fat, but I gained muscle which weighs more than fat.

I've learned that the scale is not the most reliable source to see how you are doing. I really do hope the numbers show up to validate all of the work you have done, but if they don't, be encouraged. You are doing awesome and it will show on your body!!

:o) Christine

    Don't forget--even if there's no movement on the scale, I'll bet you've lost inches!! Sometimes that's the better way to measure your progress. Bet you'll see a change either way!

Keep working hard!!

update on progress

Tuesday, September 08, 2009

so far so good. i'm still on track. got a good workout this morning with walk/jog. i'm going farther with the jog now and that feels great. my goal is to just jog but baby steps in all things. my challenge is still holding me accountable for food intake and exercise so i'm going to stick with it. and heck i've met a wonderful person along the way. we can never have too many friends. so have a blessed day all and remember.....we can get there from here. we just have to give it all weve got and then some.

so far so good.....

Wednesday, September 02, 2009

as i sit here i'm thinking that this week is off to an awesome beginning. of course now it is into the middle of the week. i'm still on plan, my exercise is great, and calories in the range. i'm really looking forward to friday and weigh in day.

all we have to do is take this one step at a time and the rest will start to fall into place. i have to look back over my life and my old lifestyle to see that i was really just lazy. not a good word for someone with ocd but there it is. i wouldn't eat right because it took work. exercise, no way that meant sweat. but now look out guys. if i don't sweat i feel like i didn't do something right. i eat according to spark plan and love it. i love that i can change foods that don't agree with me and that i still stay on track. makes making choices outside of the norm even easier.

i have to say to all if this is a new start, restart, or a continuation of the lifestyle stay strong and never give in or up. it will all come together and you may even learn something new about yourself along the way. god bless.
