Doing it, Doing it and doing it well

Wednesday, March 06, 2013

Finally on track! I'm not trying to give myself too much credit tho.... don't want to mess up a good thing. I certainly like this momentum I am building. Last week I lost 7.4 pounds. That's the best I've done in a long time and I can't tell you how much I needed that!!!!

    7.4 lbs....wow.....that is too much.


Trust me here, this can't be a race.


I went back to see your specifics....maybe it isn't at your weight, and I hope you aren't taking this the wrong way. When I was at my heaviest, I lost a good amount in a short period of time.


Just understand that 7 lbs a week isn't sustainable, not healthy after a point.


I think a lot of us were always a bit on the plump side, but not near where we are or were. It took years to put on enough weight to finally say enough is enough. That's why I say we can't expect to drop weight we gained over 20 years in 1-2 years and hope to keep it off.


I started this journey at about 285 lbs. I now weigh 194-197 depending on how the scale wants to treat me that morning, so say 195-196. I have pics to see. I have held that for 1.5 years, so I have a good grasp on what I need to do to maintain.....but I want to lose another 10-15 lbs, and am having a hard time. I need some help.

Valentine's Goal

Saturday, September 01, 2012

Mom died on Valentine's Day and that will mark 1 year that she's been gone. I've decided to make my goal 50 pounds down by then. Then I will have a reason to celebrate. Knowing I'm doing exactly what my Mom wants me to be doing. I changed my ticker to reflect my self proclaimed goal.

I am celebrating exercise!

Wednesday, August 29, 2012

Today started out crappy! Woke up sick, van battery died.... It turned awesome tho. I got the van a new battery, got some oil and gas in it. It needed some TLC.

I got a 5k done in 49:30!!! Monday I got it in 55:00. Then I stopped by personal trainers place and set up an appointment for Friday at 1:15pm! I have rejected strength training from every angle, so here is a way I can't deny! I bought some healthy groceries too today. Now, I'm feeling all sick and wiped out. I hope I have a second wind. I miss being an energetic pin ball. Everyday I'm going to take steps to get back there.

No matter what, emotionally, today I feel better than I did yesterday. I know that exercise makes me a better person in so many ways. I am celebrating exercise. I love it. Most of the time I want to shout and cheer when I'm done, because I did it and I'm proud of myself.

Pushing on

Wednesday, August 29, 2012

Today I woke up with crud trying to kill me. The van's battery died and I was stuck for a minute. Luckily, a gentleman helped jump the van and I was back on the road.

I got of the scale and it wasn't exactly pleasing, but I'm not going to let it control me. I'm just getting back up on the wagon and its going to take time for balance. I know if I keep doing these good habits that scale is going to have no choice but be dominated by me!!!! I'm in control here. This is MY destiny and I refuse to let petty little junk ruin my awesomeness.

Our 5k

Monday, August 27, 2012

Today I did emoticon with my son! First time ever for that! He's been by my side and asking to go to the gym with me. It's been a really good experience for the both of us. I exercised everyday last week, but more leisure on Sunday. Today I tracked all my food on my ipod, using myfitnesspal app. I took steps today to add motivation to my everyday life. Things are really looking up. Tomorrow, I start school!

I miss my Mom dearly, but finally it's not so raw. I am relieved and grateful to be in this moment. I began to wonder if I'd ever get myself back. The answer is, yes, yes I will get myself back.

    I am glad your little one is motivating you to go to the gym. My 3 year old begs me to go because the KidCare attendants let him watch TV toward the end of the evening and I don't :)
