Talk about a leap of faith...

Thursday, October 30, 2008


I guess it had to happen. I was just so shocked.

I stopped losing weight because my calories burned was starting to be the same as the calories eaten emoticon

A really nice friend suggested I either eat more or burn less calories. Slowing down on my cardio didn't sound right so I asked for advice.

Who woulda thunk it, I am not sedentary anymore! So my BMR is changed and my calories in is up and I believe I am now on track to be losing again.

Talk about a leap of faith - when you find you must add 400 calories to your daily intake you hold your breath and take another bite.

To Be Continued Next Month......

    It is important to keep that metabolism up by making sure you are getting enough of the right foods :)

It is great that you have figured it out ;)

I am so proud of you and seeing you succeed is just so exciting ;)

    Yeah, it is weird when you figure out you aren't eating enough to make up for all the exercise. I stay on track by reevaluating once a month. Am I working out more? Less? Updated my start page recently? etc.

  Yeah... that's just the thing about living a new lifestyle... we need to re evaluate ourselves every now and then. I did that for a little while too. Then I cut down on my cardio, and weight started coming off again. It's a hard one to explain to people though. Glad someone pointed this out to you. I had no idea that this was something you were dealing with. I am also happy that you got this figured out now. SO..... let's see those lbs take a hike! WHOOT WHOOT!!!

Disappointing - - - But It Happens...

Sunday, October 19, 2008

Ok, today's blog is pretty much for me and everyone else that has this happen.

I got flabby! Flabby flabby flabby!!! So, of course, I started searching and was told "Strength Training", "Exercise", Strength Training"... so I got out my exercise videos and walked the WATP 3 miles with the Stretchie! I have been doing the exercises recommended. I even started doing squats squats squats but only as far as the discomfort because of my knees. I don't need trouble knees.

Well, I even donated blood on Thursday and brought my own snack! Passed out *sheesh* and had to have the cookie anyway.

End results? Up a pound from the blood donation and now up 2 more!! While I tell myself that I am making muscle it still doesn't feel good to gain weight while watching my calories and exercising faithfully. Not once did I go over my range of 1200-1550, not even on "cookie day" which I must confess I really didn't want to enjoy. Only one day high sodium from canned veggies *aargh* I must remember canned is salt!

Am I going to give up? Heck NO! Little setback from making muscles and possibly water retention is no reason to cry uncle! And I just can't take the chance of the flab getting too out of control so exercise is the only answer I can think of.

Just wanted to share since this is probably as negative as I have felt since my "NEW ME" day of March 27, when I finally got my act together and started losing a large part of me.

The good news is my flabby thighs are 1/2" smaller today!

Hugs and hope this is a great week!
Linda

**edited: I don't want confusion - I am not giving up, not getting discouraged - just a small setback that I know will correct itself in time. It does help to know I am not the only saggy-baggy out there.

    I know the frustration of exercising and eating right and not losing weight. I seem to hit a plateau every two pounds or so. I know you're not discouraged and all . . . it's just frustrating sometimes. If you're losing inches, others are right--you should just focus on those for a while.

Good work on everything! You are an inspiration in so many ways.

HUGGERS1 10/20/2008 9:08AM

    I feel ya. I have some MONTHS where I don't lose anything, in fact since may I have went from 217 to 204.9 and that is it even with the exercise, plus some months I don't even lose at all, but I have consistently lost inches every month and I notice I am toning more than I used to. So i am thinking that My fat is being exchanged for muscle and don't worry about the stagnant scale. I have decided that since I am still losing inches I am not on a plateau and inches tell the tale better than the scale anyway.

You are doing great and you will be toned in no time with the strength training. I hope you won't feel this is a setback for long because with that added muscle comes more fat burning :)

    You're doing a great job! It takes a while for skin to catch up with weight loss, and doing strength training helps a lot.

I really recommend the book 'The Workout' by Gunnar Peterson. He has a set of exercises to do in there that are pretty simple. You'll have to get some dumbells, but a small set will do until you progress to needing more weight. There are two exercises in there that require gym equipment and I just skip those two. I also don't do the lunges with weights, and at first I couldn't do them at all. I do some of the exercises on my exercise ball...it just feels nicer.

I'm seeing a big difference in the tone of my arms and legs...now if only my abs would catch up!

Anyway, it's just a thought. I picked up the book at Barnes and Noble, but I bet it's easy to find online.

Have a great weekend, and keep up the good work! You are such an inspiration! Your achievements are fantastic, and I know you're going to meet your goals. Thanks for sharing your concerns...it's okay to feel a bit blue....this path is tough, but it's so worth it. emoticon emoticon emoticon

Amber alert prayer for a friend of mine.

Thursday, October 16, 2008

I received this email today:

I cannot believe this. This is my dear friend's little boy, Cole.

I worked with her for over two years at the same place. All she ever talked about was her son, Cole. I have tried to call her, but of course I can well imagine she is simply not capable of even speaking.

She, Julie, is an angel. You could never want to meet a more kind or gentle person than what she is.

Unbelievable! Lee

If you can spare a prayer to find this child please.

thank you,

50 down and 25 to go....

Monday, October 13, 2008


I haven't felt much like blogging the last 2 weeks. I struggled with 160 for an entire week but I finally made it yesterday and today I broke it with 159.6 and that was exciting.

I went through my closet and denim dresses that had been too tight are now too loose - I never got to wear them, lol. This is happening with loads of pants that I held for years in the hopes of fitting them again someday. Well, now they are too loose too and I am going to donate them.

Shopping is fun again as now I can even find things on the clearance rack that either fit me or will fit me soon! Really a great feeling that you will all experience very soon!

Oh yeah! I let my skinny sister try on some sale Capri's from Wal-marts and we now wear the same size! WooHoo!! She is smaller through the hips yet but I am in the pants and can sit down and everything! Now that is what I call exhilarating news!!

The image is my virtual model at 138! I'm on my way!!

Love,
Linda

** Sheesh, I forgot! I am now lighter than I have been in 20 years!! I want to celebrate but don't want to go over my range, lol.

I have left Obesityville!

Tuesday, September 30, 2008


Well another month is over and saw me to new goals. I lost 8.4 lbs this month and 8 inches (counting both legs and both arms) so it was a great month!

I also dropped 1.5 points on my BMI taking me to overweight and leaving Obesityville behind me forever!

Today's picture is me, today, at my CW of 162.7 and feeling great in my new shorts!

I can only dream what October will be like!

You are a REAL INSPIRATION to me. I'm gonna keep my eyes on your site for more...

I read your "Motivation" blog previous to this one and see that walking is an important component to your weight loss program.

I've got my new shoes and I'm poised to get out the door... Any words of encouragement to me (other than the obvious "Just Do It" which is exactly what I SHOULD do)?

I'm just one of those people that need to move myself one little step at a time if I am to stay with it. If I hurled myself forward, I know my efforts will be a flash in the pan. Starts and stops are discouragements to me. I want to move steady and with purpose or I know I won't keep going.

I want to ENJOY my walks. Do you have creative suggestions of how I can focus mentally when I am alone on a walk?

Thank you!

    Congratulations! I was so thrilled to leave Obesityville myself, and it is great to see others do it as well. I swear never to return, and I will be happy to have you stare at the locked doors with me.

Now to leave Overweightville (gonna be a little while longer).


Again, congrats
