Back on track!

Wednesday, April 18, 2012

I weighed in today at 138 lb. again, so I am officially back on track with my weight loss. I lost the 1.5 pounds I gained back.

I went for a walk this morning and it felt really good. I may even do my workout video today. It has been gathering dust for weeks and weeks!

Moving Along...

Monday, April 16, 2012

emoticon I am so motivated to succeed. I had a set-back this past week, going off the diet and eating whatever for a few days. I gained a couple lbs. and had to post my weight being the same for my weigh in at the 5% community. I feel like a failed emoticon But I am back on track! I stuck to a plan to slowly merge into the Induction diet again, and did well and lost some of the weight already. I am drinking tons of water, and feeling pretty good.

I am planning on wearing a bikini this summer. Who's with me?!

    I don't think the world is ready for me in a bikini yet haha, but great job on getting back on track! Not letting a bad few days get the best of you is one of the hardest things for me, so it's awesome that you are back on track!

Measurements.

Friday, April 13, 2012

emoticonI was due to make my monthly measurements yesterday, so I did them this morning and was surprised at what I found. For my purposes, I will say I began making diet and changes when I started Atkins, and that is what I will attribute these measurements to. I lose 8 pounds from Atkins and a few before I started Aktins. Total - 10.5 lb.

Before Atkins/After Atkins
Waist: 34.5/32 (-2.5)
Hips: 37.5/37 (-.5)
Thigh: 23.5/22.5 (-1)
Upper Arm: 12.5/12 (-.5)
Neck: 14.5/13.5 (-1)
Calf: 14/14 (-)

I am surprised to see so much change in one month. I don't see it in the mirror. Part of me believes I must have measured in a different spot, but for my waist and hips. I have no reasoning for that! I KNOW I did that the same.

So, yay! emoticon

Spring is Springing!

Wednesday, April 11, 2012

I went for a walk this morning, and it felt so good. It is brisk outside, but as I was walking, I was looking around and seeing all of the signs of spring. Flowers are blooming, and I soaked it all in! I am already planning on doing some gardening for myself now.

I love how a nice walk can change my perspective on things. The focus needn't always be on the scale.

Happy spring, fellow Sparkers!

Out of the Overweight BMI

Sunday, April 08, 2012

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

I am officially moving out of the overweight BMI, which, for someone 5'3 is 141 lb. I weighed in at 138.5 this morning! emoticon emoticon

I am so happy to actually be sticking to something. This is seriously the longest I have kept to a diet. Despite my bout with the flu last week, where I DID stray a bit to help get better quicker, I still got right back on track and lost 1.5 more lb. since then!

I hope you all have a very happy Easter!

    This is Fantastic!! Last week I learned at the Dr's office that I'm actually 5'5"...my whole adult life I thought I was 5'3" possibly 5'4"...So I've been teetering on the Overweight/healthy line for 18 months! It's been driving me nuts! Only to learn my true height and that I'm in the healthy range the whole time! WOO!! It is a great feeling! WTG on all your hard work!
