Ok, so it's a title that's more reflective of soccer than a scale but dangit- I feel like I should be able to scream it at the top of my lungs with that much emotion!
I weighed in a couple days ago at 135, but was afraid to post it, thinking it was just a fluke drop and that I didn't really hit my goal. Weighed in again this morning and BAM! up comes that 135 again... if I was a gambler, I'd feel like I just hit the 7s on the slot machine. It was an amazing feeling to know that it wasn't just a fluke, that I hit my goal weight and I could stand on that scale and yell (if I wanted to) GOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLLLLLLL!

    My brain must be full of the Olympics. I saw the title of your blog, and thought it had something to do with the U.S. hockey game today! (I still don't know what the score was.)

Congratulations!! I hope to be shouting "goal!" myself one of these days. emoticon emoticon

Awwwwww I've missed you so!

Monday, February 22, 2010

Hello again 130's, it's been awhile and I've missed you. I weighed in last week and I was still in the 140's, this morning the scale said 138.8 and it's nice to be back. Still 3.8 pounds to go until I hit the top of my maintenance range again, but I know by sticking to my plan that got me here, I'll hit it. It may not be this week, or the next, or the next, but I'll get there. And this time- when I get there, I'll fight harder to stay there!

Weighed in today at 140.4, while that is still in the 140's I'm ready to say goodbye to them. I had hit my goal and was maintaining with SparkPeople when I ended up having health issues in July. In the months that followed I watched the weight climb higher, taking with it the muscle and endurance I had built up. When I tossed up my hands in dispair at the end of December I gave in to the fact that I couldn't do this "no exercise" part of the plan my physician had requested of me. So I started off slow and have been trying to add more each week... and each week I'm watching the pounds drop and my muscle tone creep back. I know the endurance part of that will take longer- because it's been too long since I've worked myself ... but it too will come back- and with it the 130's and I have to admit I'm pleased to say "goodbye 140's- you WON'T be missed"!

I know exactly how you feel. I cannot wait to go back and exercise... I am trying to loose weight with just the diet, but I am not sure that is going to work. Good luck to you

    Excellent. I had an injury in October that has kept me out of the gym for a few months so I get how tough this is. Good job!!

Keep up the great job!
I too am under NO exercise {cardio} from Dr, but I cannot take the no loss of weight. I have begun slow and will continue to be slow, until I see the cardiologist. Sometimes we need to listen to our body!

Keep on keeping on!

    Good job, you are an inspiration to me. I have been holding steady at 150 but I have lost inches so that part is encouraging.
Keep up the good work!!

aimless thoughts wandering

Thursday, February 04, 2010

Not much of a blog-writing mood, but maybe this will help my mood a bit. DH lost one of his grandma's this week- that puts us down to one grandparent left- makes me feel old.
Friend of mine's son had a major surgery yesterday - he seems to be doing well so far- but it's just one of those things that takes your thoughts off of what you have to get done during the day.
We're supposed to have ham for dinner which I don't want (leftovers from the MILs when she made it when I told her we couldn't come for dinner- then she guilted us into it anyway by buying and cooking this huge ham then trying to send it home with DH because she "can't possibly eat it before it goes bad" - and then she sent the leftovers home anyway)- probably why I'm in a crabby mood about the ham... tempted to stop at the store, get some Romaine for a nice salad and say pfffffffttttttttttt to the ham!
Can't wait for bowling tomorrow for some reason- usually I'm ok with going but this week it interests me more for some reason.
If the snow holds in upper Michigan we'll be snowmobiling this weekend- that would be nice too, but, you never know until the day if there's snow or not so I'm not getting all excited to do that yet.
Maybe I just need to toss in a video and do some kickboxing tonight- that usually busts me out of a whack mood... Hi-yahhhhhhhhhhhhhh! Pow! Thwap! Oh yeah- I'm feeling better already!

    So sad about Grandma.. I only had one,, dad's parents did not acknowledge us,, so when she died, it was so painful...

this weather does not help the mood either,, either overcast, gray and bitter cold, or snowstorm, slippery roads and cold.

Maybe you will have to make that ham "disappear" somehow,, like maybe the dog is hungry when nobody is watching, or the neighbor's dog,, more than one way to get rid of the temptation without making the hubby angry,,
think of all the starving puppies in China,, or in your neighbors yard.. in the dark, on the sly,, hmm,, maybe I am too sneaky for you,, sorry,, just some suggestions.. the salad fixin's sound great!!
