Thursday, September 03, 2009

Well so much for good intentions...just too hot and too tired after work all summer to worry about a couple of beers or eating before bedtime...scheeze!!

Well, summer's over and at least for the past few days now, I'm really feeling like I'm being good to myself again; in a getting healthy sort of way!

Let's see how I do this time!!

    Hey Pennyweight!! As you are Taking Life Back I know you will continue to learn and grow in your progress as we find our way into a Healthy and Fit Life. Be kind and patient with yourself. It is a long and winding road, that leads to the door...Another favorite of mine is ;"Life is a journey NOT a destination." ~Ralph Waldo Emerson. That thought really helps me keep on Keeping ON!

Here's to your SUCCESS and BEST RESULTS!!

First 3 months...

283 on Sept 29th
274 on Oct 13th & starting to really work out...feeling better & on the last notch for this belt (size 44)...yea!!!

OK...I've gotten down to about 268 - 270. I hit it about 11/21 but was still here on11/28...I'm bummin -- & workin HARD at this!

Now I'm getting depressed -- it's 11/4 & I'm STILL at 268.
I'm feeling better & better each day, though, & I don't think I LOOK 268...I've been doing a lot of core & stregnth training; daily, different exercises targeting different areas and changing it up so muscle groups also get a day off to rest in between. They say muscle weighs more than fat; so maybe I AM making progress. Haven't been cheating on my carb & food intake (except for 3 or 4 carb-free Michelobs on Saturday...I'm SURE I've cardioed them away by now!!

Ok; I don't know how I missed a week on here, but the good news is that I'm coming down again. Today's 11/18/08 & I just weighed in at 263!

    You're doing great. You will have ups and downs but as long as your lowest weight each week is lower than your lowest weight from the prior week you know you're moving closer to your goals, even if you don't see a new low weight each time you step on the scale.

Work the plan - see the results.

    Hang in there, your doing great. My husband has been struggling right a long with me and it was a real slow go for him. After about 7 months and him dropping only a few pounds he was rather discouraged and then all of a sudden the weight just fell off him! Then I was jealous. After a 10 months we had both lost the same amount, but mine was just more consistent. Be patient and be healthy, your body will figure it out! Good Luck!
