Getting Smaller!

Saturday, September 29, 2012

The weight has been dropping off. Friends and coworkers are really noticing now. I'm getting closer to my goal! Exercise is fun. I've been changing it up a lot. I've found my appetite is not there, so lately I've been working on getting enough healthy calories.

    No. I just started running recently. A little further as I feel up to it. My goal is 4 miles right now. Who knows later I may try for 1/2 a marathon.

Met a Goal!

Wednesday, September 26, 2012

My daughter and I have been trining for a 4 mile walk/run on Oct 13 for Breast Cancer Awareness. We got 17 laps in a hour today! Woo Hoo!! Thats four miles with a lap to spare. Feels Great! I don't know how it's going to feel tommorw. But, for right now I'm on top of the world! I did a ton of stretching!

I lost another 5.5 lbs. Doctor is keeping an eye on my liver. I lost some muscle too. So they suggest more protein and strength training, not to where I can't do another rep, just to where I fatigue the muscle. So, I'm keeping a slow & steady pace!

Size 6!

Sunday, September 23, 2012

I crack myself up! I thought my size 8 pants were a little snug and it turns out I was wearing a size 6! My vision isn't what it used to be. Last year was a difficult year with a lot of surgeries and a overnight stay in the ICU for my heart. I told myself this year was for my health. I've done it! I feel so much better with the choices I've been making. My energy is back! I thought I wouldn't feel like this again. I'm on so much medication. My goal is to be able to get off of some of it. My cardiologist told me that I'll be on it the rest of my life and it would make me comfortable and that when it goes bad it will go bad fast. Thats hard to hear. I'm determined to be around for a while. I want to see my grandchildren grow up. I'm going to do everything in my power to stick around!

    Congratulations to you for your perserverance! The doctors don't know everything and every day someone proves them wrong, becomes the exception. Size 6 for any height is a huge achievement! emoticon

    That is funny that you thought you had on a size 8 only to find out it was even smaller! Congrats on that! I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers!

Much better to find your pants snug for that reason!
