Happy Belated New Year!

Friday, January 11, 2008

Well, I finally have my computer up and running again. December has been a crazy month. In the last year I lost 77 lbs bring me to a total of 120 lbs lost from my highest weight. I also "lost" 190 lbs when I finally became a single woman again! ;) Got a job, got my own apartment, this has been a very productive year.

Happy New Year to everyone and lets hope this year will be even better than last year!!!


Happy Birthday to ME!

Saturday, October 13, 2007

down to 171.6 this morning! woo hoo! I know I haven't been at this weight since at least 1993. I have been taking it easy on the diet (aka eating whatever I want) since July or so, but I have been keeping up with my exercise. It is nice to see the weight still coming off. It's very slow, but still dropping, and I don't feel deprived by the calorie restrictions anymore.

carnival rides!

Sunday, July 22, 2007

I went to a picnic at a park on Friday and got to go on that carnival ride I had to get off of last time because I was too big. That was a big turning point for me and one of my goals was to fit on that ride again. It felt so great to not only be able to get up into the seat easily, but the safety bar fit the first time, no pushing, no embarassment, it was awesome. I was by far the oldest person on the ride and I loved every stomach churning second of it! I even went on it a second time...a couple hours later after my stomach calmed down! ;) I also fit comfortably on every other ride I went on, though it was a bit embarassing to almost lose my lunch on the Ferris wheel. The FERRIS WHEEL for heavens sake!! I can handle spinning in circles while going nearly upside down, but forget about moving gently in a big circle while facing forward the whole time, LOL!

My 2 1/2 year old got to go on tons of rides, too and she LOVED it. She was so tired at the end of the day, she fell asleep on the way home at 6:30 and didn't wake up until 8:15 the next morning. It was a great day.

    I am glad to see I am not the only one who wanted to be able to get on Carnival/amusement park rides again without embarrassment. Sounds like you had a wonderful time!

Ellipticals rule!

Sunday, June 24, 2007

I have noticed that my weight loss slows way down when I do less elliptical work and more other cardio exercises, like biking and walking. Everytime I go back to doing mainly the elliptical, the weight just melts off! I was skeptical that it was really burning that many more calories because walking and biking seem like just as much work, but it really IS burning that many more calories and in fact I think it is burning more than SP says even. WOW. So in addition to rededicating myself to my diet, I am rededicating myself to my elliptical. If I hit a plateau, I may see if changing it up at that point has a different effect.

    A friend of mine is loaning me her Eliptical. I am very encouraged by your success and I hope you can give me some pointers for starting out on the Eliptical. My activity level is low and I walk 3-4 times a week. I am increasing my levels slowly.

Congrats on your weight loss!

Brandi ;)

    Yeah for you and your progress!
I just got an inexpensive elliptical and saw your post. Could you email me and let me know how you started out on yours? Minutes, form, etc. I want to get the most out of it and have never used one until yesterday. It isn't the best model, but I didn't want to spend a lot of money until I was sure I liked it. By the way, your daughter is adorable, she has hair a lot like my 4 year old!! Hope to hear from you, thanks, Lisa
