Hit Below a Key Weight!!!

Monday, September 17, 2007

This weekend, my weigh-in was great! I lost 3.7 pounds and I am now below the 210 pound mark. This is phenomenal for me because I have been above this mark for about a year. I was not sure if I was going to see that number again and I have!!!

This also means that I only have 8.6 pounds to go to be just below 200! This is a huge feat for me as I am used to losing weight on the decimal system (-.2 or -.6). Core has given me the tools I need to lose weight effectively and in an appropriate manner.

I also had a win this week because I ate out two four meals this weekend and I went to the fair. I was very proud of myself because I didn't eat fair food. I had a beer, which I really wanted and that was it. It was the healthiest choice I could have made (to some extent it was!), but it was the best choice for me.

Also, I didn't have cheesecake for a birthday shindig! That was kinda cool because everyone else was eating it and I knew that it would take quite a bit of time and effort to erase those calories off of my body, but I was the only one that wasn't going to have to do that! Woohoo!

I felt very empowered.

    Your blog entry is certainly inspiring!

It sure sounds like your healthy habits are truly a part of your lifestyle now!

I'll be cheering you on when you slide below 200 for your next milestone.

In the meantime, give yourself a pat on the back and make sure you reward yourself!

Veered Off the Road...

Wednesday, September 05, 2007

I was doing so well and somehow, this weekend took me off my new path of healthiness. I am back on track, but I still feel bad about it. I suppose that is a good think in retrospect. At least I know the value of what I was doing for myself. I am working on making this body better and changing my attitude. I know I will hit bumps along the road and I am just a little fearful that I will allow myself to fall into my old habits.

It's very tough when you feel like you are on the edge of disaster. I am at about 15 pounds. This is always where I seem to sabotage myself on WW. I have not made it past the 15 pound mark in my life. I want to now. I just need to stay focused and start exercising.

I will make this promise to me -- No matter what happens, I am required to go to my meetings until January 1, 2008. This will make me accountable for all of my choices. I also MUST weigh-in. No using those "free passes."

Good luck to you all as we struggle in the challenge together!

Today is the first day that I am blogging on this site. I am hoping to keep it up at least a couple of times per week. I have lost 14.2 pounds thus far and I am looking forward to getting below the 200 mark. I would like to do that before Thanksgiving. That would mean I would need to lose another 11 pounds or so. I think that is doable.
