Today's title comes from Paul Harvey with his famous, "page two"
I started this journey on Mar 27 and decided that no matter how much or how little I lost it would be forever. My main goal is still to reach a weight I will be able to maintain. I am just thrilled that my first goal was 15 lbs ago! and I am still going!!
I had to reach the point where nothing looks as sweet to me as losing this weight once and forever. Hence each pound lost is gone forever. Every temptation reaches the same decision - is this worth my not reaching my goals? So far it is always, "nope."
I still have a pair of red shorts hanging up and I tried them on again yesterday! I cannot close them but I could get them on! And when I held the waist closed they looked so much better than any forbidden treat! They are the new size 6 and I will be in them next spring! Bring on Summer 2009, I am going to be ready!
When I started SP it was to lose 45 lbs and I gave myself a year to do it. Well, back in July SP wanted me to eat more than I was comfortable with so I changed my goals to lose 1-2 lbs a week and started dropping them 2 per week on average. The more I lost the more I wanted to walk (Cardio) and it becomes a vicious circle, lol, with me being the winner who is losing.
As an added thought, I started moisturizing to help my body to reduce the outer shell (sounds so much nicer than flab) and I am using Oil of Olay Firming Cream from Wal-marts. While I cannot say it is firming me up, it is revitalizing my skin so it will be able to reduce a little easier. And it is making looking in the mirror nicer too!
Have a spectacular day!
Love & Hugs,
P.S. I made it - down 60 lbs now!!

It almost escaped my notice, but I am down 59 lbs today! Thanks to DH asking me!! WooHoo!! My weight is really on the move!
I lost 4.5 lbs so far this month and another inch this week! Finally seeing some improvement in the size of my calves which have been huge all my life. I thought they started feeling "jiggly" this week and I was hoping they would start going down.
I joined a new team, really - it's a new team - and the Team Leader, Megsamama, has a chart that helps me to know how many calories I need to eat daily! Thanks a million Meg, you are helping me to simplify my life!! The team is called, By The Numbers and Meg will email the chart to anyone that asks for it. You can find the team by looking at my SparkPage.
I am using the WATP videos but this week I was given (loaned) 3 new videos and they are awesome. I now have my own set of Walk Slim and I just love the first in the series called Fast Start! I have been using WATP for a couple of months thanks to Huggers1 but these are like a breath of fresh air! I actually had so much fun using the first one that I hated to have to turn it off when the phone rang and we had to go out immediately. (No, not an emergency, but our Golf Cart was ready for us to pick up.) I already had Walk Slim Fast & Firm! 4 Really Big Miles (very doable!) but now I am going to start with #1 and walk my way up!
I'm going to reach 60 lbs gone before I reach age 60! WooHoo!! My chosen picture is my virtual model at 130 because DH & I are now thinking this might be possible for me to achieve! While I am short I am also large boned (no, my doctor told me this) so we really have no idea what my ideal weight will be.
Hugs to All!!
