I Reached Goal This Morning!

Wednesday, September 22, 2010

I am officially at goal. I am actually at 133.8 and my goal was 134. I am down 137.2. It took about 7 years all together. I didn't find Spark People until last Nov. and didn't take advantage of it until March. I lost the last 50ish with SP. I am really excited. I actually think I might be able to do this long term. That is the challenge. I have lost hundred of pounds over the last 50 years. Now I just need to figure out how to maintain it. I can do it! I now understand what it takes. SP has allowed me to focus on the parts of a healthy lifestyle that were actually working for me and not waste time on things that weren't. I think it has been the key to my recent success. Without it I wwould have probably hung around the 185-200 mark. Now I am in a size 4 jeans and a 6-8 dress. Pretty cool!!!! (Que the Rocky song here)

    Congratulations on reaching your goal weight!!

I have a couple of friends on my page who have been here on SP maintaining their weight loss for the past several months. They belong to a team for maintainers. You might find that helpful too -- now that you've reached goal.

Tuesday Chores

Tuesday, September 21, 2010

I think I am making progress. I am only 0.2 pounds from my goal and I am almost finished with getting the house ready to show. I should finish this afternoon. I went out to dinner with a friend last night. We had fun. We went to Pei Wei and split the Asian Chopped Chicken Salad. Yummy and legal! I love that. According to my scale I have lost almost 10% body fat. It probably isn't accurate enough to be trusted but I do believe I have lost a lot of fat! I am enjoying unemployment at least the not working part. The lack of money part probably won't be as much fun. My stress level is down at least. I had better get going!

Hello Monday!

Monday, September 20, 2010

Another Monday. This one should go fast. I have lots to do this week. I am only 0.6 pounds away from my goal. I just keep plugging along no matter what. I am on my exercise bike as I write this. We shall see if that is a good idea or not. I am a lousy typist anyway and this probably won't help. I find I do better if I get most of my SP stuff done early. I need to finish washing the windows outside today and run some errands. I am going to get my final pay check and put it in the bank. Well I am almost done on the bike. Better get moving!!

Quick Entry

Monday, September 20, 2010

Wow...today was busy. I am pooped. I was up until 1AM last night working on the house because I found out the photographer was coming over at 10A to take the pictures to go on the web. I got up at 6A so I could be ready for my heavy lifting help at 9A and the photographer at 10A. I really hope the house sells fast. I will miss my friends but I know how to keep up with them. I really miss my hubby. I am going to have to be ready to leave on short notice so they can show the house. I have been really stubborn about my exercise. I have been getting up an hour and a half early so I can fit it in. I am so tired right now I am going to sleep in a little tomorrow. Who knows when I might be able to do that again. I am headed to put the clothes in the dryer and off to bed. BTW...the mattress didn't kill me. I hired the son of a good friend to help with for a few hours and we moved it pretty easily. Stupid bedskirt....if I hadn't taken it off in the first place I wouldn't have needed to put it back. It really need washing though. Hope we all have a fabulous and lucky week!

Rushing Around on Saturday

Saturday, September 18, 2010

I just finished my yogurt and need to get back to work on the house but I may not have time to do this the rest of today. I am trying to get the house ready for pictures and a virtual tour. The realtor is supposed to call me shortly to set that up. I really hope the house sells quickly. It is a really cool house even if I do say so. I am going to have to figure out a way to get the dust ruffle back on the bed. We thought we had sold the house but they couldn't get financing. When the delivered the new mattress I didn't put it back on because I wanted to launder it before it was packed. Now I am going to need to put it back on the King sized bed. That could be a video sensation if I taped it. If you never here from me again I was probably killed by my mattress.
