At the end of 10 weeks!

Tuesday, November 11, 2008

I am proud to announce that I completed my 10 week nutrition and wellness class! I cannot begin to tell you the abundance of knowledge that I "indulged" on in such a small amount of time!

One of the best quotes we learned in class was "NOTHING TASTES AS GOOD AS THIN FEELS!" Sometimes when I see something unhealthy in front of me, such as a donut or breadsticks, I remind myself of that saying. Or as other's would put it... I try to think myself thin.

Alright, so here were my results: In ten weeks I lost 11.6 pounds (oops I gained a half pound in the last week or it would have been 12.1) and 14 inches. I think that I feel the biggest success is the inches. The gentlemen that teaches the class always says who cares if you weigh 200 pounds if you are a size 2 and he is so right!

I will rejoin the class in January (that's the next time they offer it), however I will not give up the great advice that I learned between now and then. I will continue to journal my food so that I will stay on track!

I know that my history is to lose weight, gain it back, and lose it again. I am determined not to do that this time. I want to keep losing with the support of my family, friends, and sparkpeople. I KNOW I CAN DO IT!

My Inspiration!

Friday, November 07, 2008

Although be probably doesn't understand to what a great extent that he is my inspiration, I not only devote my self-perserverance to my weight loss, but also my husband.

Recently I've laughed with my best friend about how lucky I feel to have such a handsome husband. There are days that I catch myself lost in thought when I look at him. My best recollection of this was one day working in the yard when I peered over towards him and thought to myself, I wish I was as "eye pleasing" to him as he is to me. He such a handsome man, one that I feel lucky to share my life with.

Over the last few weeks I have told my husband that that is part of my goal. He continues to tell me that I already am beautiful; but I now know that I want to feel beautiful for him.
