I am working on 13 days til weigh in. I have been working out faithfully. Its actually quite hard for me to take a day or two off from working out. I know that we are supposed to but I feel the need to always get that workout in the morning. I have been working out twice on some days. I am just so determined to get out of the 220 club. I am on a mission to achieve. I am going to continue my mission and hopefully be out of the 220 club. I am just checking in and staying focused.

I have 3 weeks til my September 1st Weigh In, I feel like I haven't been on my spark like I used to be. Life gets busy but I have been working out like I am supposed to. I do know that I am getting ready to add my strength training like I need to. I want to weigh in at 200 or less come September 1st. I weighed in at 226 on the 1st of August. I have been working out 2 times a day just trying to get this weight off. I feel lighter today, however I wont step on the scale with Tom visiting, because he always bring extra baggage. I know I have been sweating like crazy down here. We were in the 100's all last week. Well I am writing up a plan for this week, I do know that I had one day off last week (Mon) but I have been taking the weekends lightly. I did a 30 minute workout yesterday and a 30 minute work out today. To me that is better than nothing, I cant see myself just doing nothing, I really want to work out and lose this weight and keep it off. For good. I have a goal of reaching my goal weight by Jan. 2008. I dont know what I am going to do once I reach that goal. I do know that Success deserves Celebration however it will be a sensitive menu. I do know the difference this time will be the knowledge, the determination and the ability to know that this is a lifelong journey in order to keep the weight off and know that I dont want it to come back, I wont accept it back.

Do you ever get someone who looks through their eyes to say things to you to cause you to re-assess your goals? I caught myself doing this a few days ago. I had someone telling me that they miss the old me, I asked to make sure I was not over reacting, what do you mean by the old me?! They replied the old you was different, now the new you is just different I think you are just changing. When I think of the old me, I see the big girl who had a lack of energy, who ate a lot, based a lot around food, and who was getting to a point where she was wasting away. I wonder why sometimes the positives we do for ourselves have to include negatives from others. I sometimes have to let what others say roll on down the drain, then I also have to take a look at myself and make sure that what I am doing is staying in perspective and being who I want to be and how I want to be. Moving right along all the while using my own eyes to look at me and honestly, or someone who is honest and not intimidated by my progress.

Whats your limit? Sky is the limit for me, I have stumbling blocks that keep trying to fall in my way, yet I have to be stronger and work to get over them, around them or maybe even go through them, however, I refuse to let them hold me back or even block my way. It ain't over 'til the skinny girl sings. well the Healthy Girl Sings......

I did my weigh in today, because this is the 1st of the month and the scale still tells me that I am 226. I went through a few different thoughts on the weigh in. For one I was disappointed because I truly wanted out of the 220 club, and I really want to be out of the 200 club, however then the positives came and told me at least I didn't gain, and I am maintaining, plus I just have to put into focus what I will do to lose weight this month, my body is probably adjusting, you know the ugly plateau, but I will work through and keep going. Then the neutral came saying Focus, and Determination will help me make it through. I have made it this far, and I am not giving up. So I may just have to readjust my goals, work harder, see whats helping me or what I need to change with plan. Nothing stays the same so change must come to get the desired results. I am willing to work towards my goal!!!!!!!!!
