The weight keeps coming off!

Tuesday, March 13, 2007

I have to admit I was a little tentative stepping on the scape this morning. It had been three weeks since I had last done it, as I had to curtail my exercise program a few weeks back due to a nasty back ailment. So, I decided to wait until I started exercising last week to step back on the scale in case there had been any temporary weight gain that might have been deflating.

Well, I was plesently surprised -- not only had I lost weight since my last weigh-in, it had actually allowed me to beat my 2nd mini goal of 272 by 3/15 (my birthday) by 2 pounds -- 270!!

So I am proving to myself that diet and exercise can be beneficial (I thought it was a hoax!). I stil think the big keys have been the amount of water and added fruit and veggies, but whatever the case, it's working!!

SP Community

Wednesday, March 07, 2007

This week is quickly becoming an eventful week here in SP-land. Moved from Stage 2 to Stage 3 (and I think the time is right), and decided to follow my heart and join the SP Community Team. And based on the response, it has been more than worth it already!

I really look forward to reaching out and helping others work toward their goals as I continue to work towards mine!

What's New

Monday, March 05, 2007

I realized I had not added anything to my blog in weeks. My bad! Here's what's been happening since 2/13:

- Last weigh-in = down 13 pounds
- Clothes that were incredibly tight / not wearable are gettin much looser and/or wearable. :-D
- Did have one minor setback -- On 2/25, I was just standing in my kitchen and went to put something in the dishwasher, when all of a sudden, a stabbing pain went radiating in my lower back! :-( So last week I tood two days off from work, saw my chiropractor, and really took it easy. I did start doing my morning yoga last Wednesday, and today I made my first trip back to the gym (60 minutes). I was going to go to my yoga class tonight, but my back is aching a little, so decided I won't overdo it.
- I've had two appts with a personal trainer. We meet again this week to round out my new gym routine. So far I like what she has done.

All in all, a good last few weeks.


1st Goal Acheived!!

Tuesday, February 13, 2007

Good morning!

A nice way to start a cold day in CT -- acheiving a weight goal 1 month ahead of schedule!

My goal was to be at 277 by my birthday (3/15). I weighed myself this morning and -- I am at 276 -- so I've actually beat the goal by a pound a month ahead of schedule!

Success factors:

- Tracking EVERYTHING I eat (and staying within goals)
- Much more fruit and veggies in my diet
- Water, water, water
- Increased exercise
- Support (SP and home)

The best part -- I haven't had to starve myself. In fact, I have a hard time getting to my target calorie count each day.

And the clothes are starting to fit loose again. It's all good.

Here's to my next goal -- 272 by my birthday!

Even more success!!

The "skinny" :-) --

- Lost 3 more pounds this past week (total of 6 since I started)
- 2 " gone from my waistline (granted, there's a lot there, but...)
- 1/2" gone from my neck and hips
- Moved from Stage 1 to Stage 2

Why I think this happened:

- Logging my calories
- Increased exercise
- Water!
