Such a great Swim this morning!!

Thursday, November 18, 2010

I so love swimming at the YMCA in the mornings. But this morning was exceptional!! I sat on the side of the pool, put my flippers on ( they slipped right on as I have lost some weight), put my ear plug in, put my goggles on and I was off! I was able to swim five laps without takings a small rest!! I just love how my body feels so fluid in the pool. I swam 13 laps in twenty-five minutes. I had a great workout. I just love starting out my day in that pool!!!

27 Inches in 3 Months

Friday, October 10, 2008

I almost can't believe it's me in the mirror. I am really shrinking. I am actually doing what I have been wanting to do. Eat right, exercise and lose wight. who knew it could work? If you put them all together they actually do work for you. I got very serious in July and have lost almost 27 inches and 27 pounds of my already beautiful body it is shrinking and getting more Lucius as it shrinks! I am sleeping better and my eating habits have improved so much. I ate fresh fruits and veggies,but now if I eat something fried it really bothers my stomach! I did have a little ice cream last night, but I only had two small scopes, not a Hugh bowl. I am going through a life style change not some fad diet that will only last a few weeks and you gain the weight back. In a few pounds in will have meet my first goal of 10% of my 274 than I will aim for 10% of that. Slow and steady will win this race for me!!
With mt spark friends anything is possible!!

Lost 180 Pounds Overnight

Sunday, August 10, 2008

Well it was really like over the past six weeks. On Friday I finally ended it for real with my boyfriend Chuck who I had been with for over four years. He and I are going different ways with our lives and I don't like the path he has chosen. It has been very sad and difficult for me, but I can't be with someone who goes against my values and morals. My heart has been broken for the past 2 months, but I have been living through it and making the best of it. I have been making changes for myself to be healthy and strong. and most important not turn to food at a time like this!!! I really had the fantasy that one day we would marry. Like I said most likely that was my fantasy and not his reality!! Like my karaoke song of the 90's "I will Survive"! I am a smart, strong, independent woman!! Who is on her way to the lean mean fighting machine she once was!!

    Patty my girl... I am so delighted to hear that you have found the strength to break free of what keeps you down.

We often find ourselves tied to the "Cinderella Complex" ... trapped in a comfort zone that prevents us from becoming who we are...why...because we are fearful of being alone?

My darlin you are on your way to lean mean fighting machine status...

YOU are worthy my friend...remember YOU ARE WORTHY!!!!!!!!

Loving me some Patty Girl!

    Hi there. Just stopping by to give you some support and some emoticon. There is not much I can say at this time, because I'm sure it just feels horrible and the pain is still very raw. Give yourself plenty of time and just take it one day at a time. You deserve only the best of what life has to offer so I applaud you for making a hard but good decision for yourself. That shows that you are a true survivor, DONE girl and tough enough to make it through this. Don't forget to lean on people for support!

10 Inches Gone!!

Monday, August 04, 2008

It has been four weeks since I set my mind and got serious again!! I had my measurements taken and have been exercising everyday at least 30 minutes. I either walk or swim when a pool is available. I have been going to the farmer's market every week buying and eating fresh fruits and vegetables. Using portion control has paid off!! 10 inches gone from my body!! Woot Woot!! The biggest difference is in in my abs 2.5 inches!! but hey I'll take the .50 inch in my neck!! I have had so much more energy at work and at home. I have been getting more cleaning done and projects accomplished!! I need to stay motivated and positive! I didn't gain this weight overnight and I know it will take time to lose all the weight I need to lose! It just feels good to see results!!!
