You know, sometimes I get so frustrated with the whole weight loss thing. It seems that for every step forward, I end up taking two steps back (as the saying goes). Every time I get within ounces of that ten pound mark, I goes back up two or three pounds. I do everything I am supposed to. I eat right and exercise every day. I try to keep a positive attitude and encourage others. I change up the routine and still nothing works. I want to say the heck with it and just stop trying, but I don't. I will just keep plodding along in the hopes that eventually something will click.

    I hear you, Tee! But we have to keep trying! With every step and every change we are moving toward a healthier lifestyle; hopefully weight loss will be a side effect of that process. ::fingers crossed::

    Good health is much more that weight. How do you feel? How do your clothes fit on you? These are the non-scale victories (NSV) that should be celebrated. Finally, the best way to get healthy is to adopt a healthy lifestyle. That being the case there is no trying just doing. Develop good healthy habits, repeat often until they become part of your everyday life. In my opinion, that is the key to success.

    If you are working out, then you are building muscles and it is really true that muscle weighs more than fat.

My story, about 30 years ago, I was taking exercise classes, walking daily and swimming and even the instructor complimented me on how good I was looking. Yes, I went down 3 sizes, but my weight only reduced by 2 or 3 lbs. Also, a medical issue I had at the time, caused me to slack off and stop exercising, I didn't gain any weight, but lost the muscle and never again got into that pair of jeans I had shrunk down too.

There is hope!!! emoticon emoticon

    I can't suggest taking measurements enough. Body composition is so much more about health -- the point is health, right?

Giving it a try

Friday, May 10, 2013

Okay, I am going to try blogging again. I have never really been very good at it, but everyone says that it can really help you reach your goals. I recently started visiting Sparkpeople again after a long break. I went back to school and got busy with other things. It seemed like I didn't really have time to be on here every day tracking things and reading articles. Well low and behold my weight went back up. I was still eating fairly healthy but my exercise dropped way off. Again, no time it seemed. Well now I need to make time! Like I said, I have been quietly tracking and gradually getting back into being mindful of what I eat and the exercise I do. I have lost 9 pounds in the last 5 weeks and hope to continue moving in that direction. I am hoping my old friends here will accept me back and that I will be able to make some new ones. So here's to new beginnings!

3 Year Anniversary

Tuesday, August 10, 2010

I didn't realized that it was my 3 year anniversary until a friend commented on it. I can't believe it has been that long, or that I have come as far as I have. I have had my highs and lows. My weight has gone down, up, and down again. I have had good exercise days and bad. I think we all have our on and off times, but it is nice to know that you always have a place to go and friends that you can turn to where you won't be judged, and support is plentiful. Thanks to everyone!

My boyfriend and I started the P90X today! The first day was awesome. It was really hard but we were both able to do at least a few of every one of the exercises. We were exhausted at the end but it feels great. Can't wait for tomorrow's session!

    I've always wanted to do P90X but I know that I need someone to do it with to help keep me motivated. It's pretty cool that you and your bf are doing it together. Good luck!
