I gave up my beloved Pepsi last fall. It was very hard to do. I was down to 2 a week and I kept that up for about 3 months before I gave it up. I'm a happier person for it though. I hadn't realized how dependent I was on the caffeine and sugar. I exercised to give me the energy I didn't have. At first it seemed like I'd never feel up to working out without having someone push me but then I realized that my exercising only benefits me. No one cares if I gain weight or lose it. I have to want it to do it. As I slowly started shedding the weight seeing the weight loss in my face motivated me to keep going. I no longer have the round face I saw in the mirror a year ago. I have another 50lbs to go but I'm going to take my time to make sure the weight stays where it needs to be...gone!

Monday, Tuesday & Thursday nights I have Latin Cardio, and whoa! it is a great stress reliever. I must admit that I am not really worrying about losing weight, I want to make sure I can keep up with the rest of the class and not fall flat on my face :) Saturday Mornings is actual zumba, less intense than the weekday classes, but it gets the job done! I'm loving it so far, don't think I will be giving this up any time soon! Happy Hump Day to all, enjoy the rest of your week!

March 1st 2012, I tried what I thought was Zumba but was actually Latin Cardio. It's just like Zumba but Way more intense. A friend had asked me to join her and even though I gave her every excuse I could think of, I'm glad I went. I was Hurting the next morning, but it more or less wore off by lunch time. It just showed me how out of shape I am. Saturday's class was actual Zumba and it was just like Latin Cardio except that I could keep up! LOL! For those of you thinking about it, just give it a shot, I did and I'm glad!!! :) Im a bit sore from yesterday's class but I will get through it. :) One piece of advise from a friend that I hadn't seen in years but saw at Latin Cardio, give it two weeks, if you don't like it then quit...but you won't. Lets see what happens! Everyone have a great week!

I haven't been on here too often and I really haven't lost much weight since I joined but I do like knowing that I can log on here and get the support I need asap. Thanks to everyone for the support in getting me on my way...more than once. I Thank God every day that I have a family who loves me and knows I love them too. I am grateful that even though I've been without a job for more than six months, I really haven't had too many hardships that some families are facing during this recession. I'm not too happy with my body at the moment, but SOME of my clothes still fits, in the coming year, all will have to fit...can't afford to buy a new wardrobe at the moment. So if I'm not back on here until next year, Happy Holidays to you all! Remember that this is the time for giving, loving the ones your with, enjoying time with your loved ones (and some not so loved ones, inlaws, but be grateful that your children have a bigger family), and always know that there are people in this world that love you unconditionally!!! So until Jan...I'll set up new goals by then!!! Take care!!!

So happy now that our computer is up and running again. I haven't been to the gym in a few weeks, my car was out too! GRR!! Then because I was upset, I went back to my one vice...Pepsi!!! Oh well, I think I deserved a little treat here and there! Anyhoo, time to get back to my goals. The school year started a few days ago, and the new year will soon be upon us. I'm happy to have the family I have and to be loved by everyone I love! I'm noticing now that since I haven't been to the gym, I constantly notice things I don't like about myself...trouble spots, my weight, how my clothes fit. GRR! But this is just a bump in the road. I am going to get to where I want to be in life. Slowly but surely! Oh well, back to the gym I go!
