OMG It is working!

Sunday, January 22, 2012

Today, the scale gave me a wonderful result, I have seen a weight loss of 2 lbs for a total of 5 pounds lost since starting out on this process. This gives me the motivation to keep going, I am so happy and proud of myself. Yes, I started this in Dec 2011 and then the week before I had no weight loss, I was a little depressed about this. So this past week I really focused on workouts and my nutrition and it has paid off. There were some days I went to the gym 2 times in one day or I did another activity like water aerobics, wow it worked for me. I am on my way to meet my 1st personal goal of new workout clothes once I get out of the 200lbs, I am only 2.8 lbs away to meeting that goal. Yahoo!! emoticon

    Hi there! I saw you just added me as a friend today! Thank you! :)

Don't be a slave to your scale, dolly! We all have weeks where there is little to no movement and sometimes (gulp!) going up and we don't know why! This is completely normal and it happens to ALL of us.

You figured out what you needed to fix and are seeing results! Bravo!!! We are all here because gradually, we all gained this weight...and that is the only healthy way it is going to come back off! Sounds like you've got all the motivation you need from the news from your doctor. This is a lifestyle change. It doesn't come easy and it doesn't come overnight.

Started out Rough

Thursday, January 19, 2012

Ok, I had a rough day today in my new work position. Today started out oversleeping and being sore from the day before from my upper body workout, felt it all day. I did not make it to the gym because not enough time to get there and work. Ok, then at work in this new position, which work from home, I forgot to eat because I take the Lipo-6 (which I only take on days I workout but it obviously stays in my system) which reviews do say you must remember to eat, I ate like a bird today, simply was not hungry. BUT I have to remember and set a time to eat something all day, the goal is 6 meals (basically 3 main meals and 3 good healthy snacks). Today I went shopping and got a lot of good foods to help me on this journey. I must watch my carbs, my RD has me only doing 30gms my main meals and 15gms my 3 snacks, I am also watching my sodium levels which I do not want any 1 meal having more than 500 to 600 gms of sodium, so what I found today shopping was, can goods have a lot of sodium, dah!! It is a preservative, so naturally I shied away from that and heading to fresh veggies. Hmm should be good. We will see. Oh, yes, I got the Zumba kit today, can't wait to try it out. I will see how this goes, this may replace the goal of PiYo for the month.


I was Hyped today

Wednesday, January 18, 2012

I am getting the bug, meaning I look forward to going to the gym, it is like the morning doesn't come fast enough. I worked my upper body today, back and chest and arms. Great workout for me and still feel it at 11:30 p.m. from 5:00 a.m. I also have to confess, I feel good but when I look in the mirror I am sad. I know, I know, it did not come onto me over night, this weight, but I am anxious to see some improvements. I think I just have to mix it up. Today was the 1st day I took my ipod phone and workout with my own music, it was great. Ok, that's all for now but if you have any encouraging words to share I am all ears.

    Okay, that's what I love to hear because I feel the exact same way. It makes you feel good knowing that you spent time on yourself, doing something positive and working to get/look better. emoticon

This is new for me

Saturday, January 14, 2012

I am such a private person, to create this Spark Page and place my most vulnerable pictures online for others to see it a big feat for me. However, I am doing this to make myself accountable to myself by having the support of community members. I already feel the push just having this Spark Page, so thank you all in advance for the encouragement.
