Finally going to the gym ..

Tuesday, April 01, 2014

Spring is here and I finally am over the slump. am pushing myself to go to the gym, I know it may not seem a hard thing to do but for me it has been a mountain ... I am proud of myself that I could get there, I did a half hour work out both days, its not much to some but its a start.

I have avoided the strength machines because to my embarrassment, I couldn't fit in half of them due to my size but that is another hurdle to get over in my self esteem, I have lost 30 lbs now so soon I will try them again ...

I hope to get there thursday and friday, tomorrow I have a doctors appointment so I can't ....

I will do my best!

I am losing slowly but surely

Sunday, March 09, 2014

It does feel good to be able to stick within my calorie range. Losing 25 lbs so far helps me to stick to an eating regime and not give up or fall of the wagon. I fell off once but gained back like a weeks worth of weight lost in just one day and i realized that it just wasn't worth it!

So now I am on the straight and narrow

My gym days are still few and far between but I am hoping as the weather gets better, so will I

I finally did it!

Monday, March 03, 2014

After 3 long months I finally got back to the gym! my first day back and I was really proud of myself for going.. I suffer from depression and it was a really tough winter, although its cold, I mustered up the strength and willpower and just went and it feels great to be guilt free today!

I hope I can do it again tomorrow or in the least this week. it may not be a big deal for some but for me its a huge deal and I am very proud of myself for getting out there!

Making Progress!

Wednesday, January 29, 2014

Well I go to a Metabolic Clinic as I take medication that makes me gain weight... they counteracted that with a medication that helps me lose weight and its actually working! I lost 8 lbs! its nice to finally see some progress and its motivating me to stick to healthy eating more so I should see more gone as well!

My spark buddy and I are really helping each other and I love being able to share our successes and frustrations... things are looking up! emoticon

Having a buddy

Monday, January 06, 2014

Well I may not be totally good this year with my eating but this year I got a buddy on sparkpeople who I am conversing with everyday and reporting to .... its so nice to have someone in the same boat as me... struggling.... but we share and support each other and I think that is important. I have known this person before sparkpeople and introduced her to it ... perhaps this will help me to get and stay on track as we support each other.... we'll see... in the meantime I am enjoying connecting with my friend and sharing our progress daily

    Congratulations on getting an accountability partner. Exercise is important, but the SP Plan of measuring every morsel of food that goes into my mouth, calculate the calories, and journal the result in the SP Nutrition Tracker is more important. It works. Estimating calories does NOT work for me. I did it on New Year's Eve the the result was a disaster. If we work the plan, it is a success. Happy New Year to working the plan. Today is Day #151 of my journey.
