Who are your friends???

Saturday, April 14, 2007

Its funny because I was reading some of my comments today, and I just happened to start thinking of how the people we hang with make a difference on the things we do, or what we try to accomplish out of life, and right now I feel as though my weight loss is such a big issue that I am trying to accomplish, that I don't have room for anything else. I guess I am working so hard on me that I don't want to fail or back track, I have to stay focused. My friends here are so informative and helpful that its contagious. LOL. I gotta do me, but help out you at the same time.

I got some pearls yesterday, they were from someone at the gym, and it felt so good to hear. The lady came up to me and said I just want to let you know I admire your motivation, you come and workout everyday, You are slimming down really good. then she asked me do I come on sat & sun too, I told her no, I hit the track on those days. It felt good to hear the compliment. I have already decided this is for life. I am not going to stop, I am just working to get to my goal and then maintenance phase for life

    ooh yeah. compliments always get you motivated. You've got the right idea, keep going and you will make your goals. I cant wait to say Ive lost 40lbs,you go girl. My april goal is to get out of the 200's. Everyday I feel different sometimes I feel like I can make it, sometimes I dont. But the good thing is I changed my life choices so Im consistant now with my choices. I know I can eat something bad, but then I know I gotta eat something good and do some exercises. Im also very aware of everything I eat verses, eating everything I see. So anyway you are right about make it for life.
talk to ya later.

    One foot in front of the other - like the Christmas cartoon says. You can do that and you can certainly get the weight off (yesterday's blog). We all have a lot of work to do, and I too am in this for life, so we can keep motivating each other. I'm glad you are in this group.

What makes this time different????

Wednesday, April 11, 2007

I am sitting here thinking about 281 and focusing on 181. I am asking myself what makes this time different.I have tried many times before to lose weight only to fail and gain more weight that is how I got to 281. My turning point came and I had, had enough, I knew that it was taking a toll on my body and I was no where near the girl I used to be. I felt uncomfortable, and just unattractive although I pretended to be okay. I am so glad that the scale is moving in my favor and I can't wait to make my goal, but the question still remains, what makes this time different??? I will tell you, I have been working out since July 06, and now I can't go without exercise, if I do, I feel so unproductive that it is like a missing part of me. It is a stress reliever, it makes me feel good to know that I am taking care of my body, it has taken away the rusty bones (seems like arthritis) hurting feet, indigestion, constant headaches. I was thinking to myself wow I can get out of the bed and not feel like my body stiffened up during the night anymore, that was because of my weight. Its funny how I notice the little things.

    It's good that you aren't planning to turn back...because I'm not either. I am in it for life, not a quick fix. We can all do this!! :)

Workout clothes.

Tuesday, April 10, 2007

Okay, I finally bought some new workout clothes because the ones I had, I have been working out in when I was 281, LOL, they are so saggy that it is a shame, I went home for spring break and I know that if I had put those pants on to work out in, my mom and best friend would have died on the spot laughing, I am going to step up my game and go to the gym looking nice for now on. My pants were sagging in the booty, the shirt was too big, I was wearing a size 22/24 when I need a 16/18 now. Its crazy. I probably looked like a ragamuffin. I probably could have gotten a makeover, its a surprise they didn't call 911 on me.
