My jean shorts don't hurt any more...

Thursday, August 21, 2008

I pulled some jean shorts out on 7/18. I got them on and zipped but when I sat down the were still too tight. I have them on now and I am fine. No more ouch. I looked back and there is only 6 pounds difference from then and now. It's hard to believe 6 pounds could make that much difference. Oh well, I'm happy with it. I am looking forward to a shopping trip soon. I should be able to get into size 14 soon. My 16s are getting baggy.

I'm registered for a 5K walk

Saturday, August 16, 2008

Woo Hoo, My family and I are registered for a 5K walk on September 27th. We did it last year when I was heavier. I did ok. I skipped one leg of that walk because I could see the finish line if I went left and I should have gone right to make the final loop. I went left. LOL I am looking forward to this year's walk. I feel so much better and I expect to finish it without any trouble. I also hope to have my weight to 165 by then. That is 9 pounds in 6 weeks. I can do it !!!

Update time

Friday, August 15, 2008

Not too much to report today. I still have not gotten my controlled exercise back on track. Yesterday I was gone from home from 7:45am to 11:00pm. I did get some exercise from 7:30 to 9:30 helping MJSB0618 (AKA Monica) move. There was a lot of walking and carrying. My weight is doing great. My lowest weigh in is 174 and I am teetering 1/2 to 1 pound above that this week. I am looking forward to some rest this weekend.

Moving is a lot of exercise!

Good job keeping in mind how to get back on track with your routine.

    My dear friend, I hope you logged the packing and moving of boxes. That is such difficult and demanding exercise! And what a dear friend you are to help Monica out! Do something nice for yourself! You deserve some pampering!

    Take a nice warm bubble bath and listen to some relaxing music and then SLEEP this week-end. Honestly, lowering STRESS helps us to avoid over-eating and it is REALLY an important issue for our weight loss. SO, DON'T feel guilty about getting REST.

Slipping on exercise...

Monday, August 11, 2008

Donald and I have bought and started rehab on a house. I have been so tired that I have not been getting my exercise. I have not been doing physical work on the house so I can't say I am getting exercise there. I really need to get my bike ride or my treadmill workouts each day. I need to get my ride or walk in first thing in the mornings before I get too tired. That is my new goal. Today I plan to go for a walk outside. I am ready to move my weight towards the 160s.

    Hi Julie,

We missed you on our Team Page!

It sounds like your body is getting quite a work out with the rehab on the house!

Are you doing 'demo' tearing down walls and stuff?

Don't be too hard on yourself - it's not as if you are sitting on the couch all day eating potato chips. But if it would make you feel better about yourself, I'll be looking for you at about 5:30 AM each day! This is the best time for me to work out and it's so great to just get it out of the way!

You've come a long way, baby! Hang in there!
