Still Losing Weight

Sunday, April 20, 2014

I have lost 25 pounds since January 3. I feel great and my running has improved tremendously. Hard work and calorie counting are paying off. I set a goal weight for August first and I only have two pounds left to reach it. This is the first time, in a long time, I have been able to stay motivated for this long.

I sure hope I can keep it up!

Best of luck to anyone reading this blog. If I can do it at 58 years old, you can do it too!

    Isn't it great! I will be 57 this July, the same day that I reach my 1 year maintenance Sparkversary. I tell others the same thing. Being a post-menopausal woman is no excuse for failure!

    Keep up the great work and my best advice to you once you reach the goal weight is to act like you are still in the same kind of process as when you were losing. I have been in maintenance since July of last year and I still track everything I eat and still exercise daily and it has worked well.
Keep up the excellent work. 25 since Jan is awesome!

I'm Doing Great

Monday, March 10, 2014

First, Thank you Mother Nature for giving me 5 days where I can exercise outdoors without ice and freezing to death. I will take wind, high humidity and any temp over 32. I am blessed with the glorious sunshine these last few days.

So, I decide in January to do this thing with a friend called DietBet. You have to put up money and have 4 weeks to lose 4% of you weight. I won the first bet and made 15 dollars plus the 20 I put up. I decided to join a larger group for the second month for $35 dollars. It ended today and I was successful again. I have lost 18 pounds and have been totally motivated to exercise and record my food intake in order to win a little money. I can't believe how money has motivated me to lose this weight, but it makes me feel great.

Someone actually call me skinny this weekend.

So, is this a lifestyle change for me? Will I continue to use money challenge as a way to get my workouts in and eat healthy? Do I go for one more round to assure I don't get lazy and gain this weight back? Now what is my running plan, an ultra instead of a marathon?

In any case, I am enjoying this new found energy, look, and the challenge to stay healthy, I am doing GREAT!

3 Days of Outside Workouts....YIPEEE

Friday, March 07, 2014

I am an outdoors girl. I live for the beauty and space my Wyoming outdoors has to offer. For the past few months I have had to live with DVD's, elliptical, stationary bike, treadmill and mall walking.

....BUT....these last few days I have been able to be outside. NO its not spring. It is still 33 with a 24 windchill but the ice has finally melted on the streets making the terrain much safer.

You see, I am a whimp when it comes to ice. Fear of breaking something is a huge deterrent for me.

Now, I am feeling better since Mother Nature gives me strength, peace and tranquilly. Thanks Great Spirit for the last three days. Hope there is more to come this month. emoticon emoticon

Made my Birthday Goal

Sunday, March 02, 2014

My Birthday Goal was to lose 5% of my body weight. That meant losing 8.75 pounds in 8 weeks. HOORAY FOR ME, I DID IT!

I decided I needed a long term goal of a body weight 35 pounds lighter than I am now. That would be 10 pounds below my ideal weight. I am so tired of losing weight and once reaching a goal gaining it back over the next four months.
I am thinking if I set my goal at under ten pounds, I will keep working at staying healthy, exercising and maybe ,I will not gain it back.

I am in it ti WIN IT!

40 Days and 12 Pounds

Saturday, February 15, 2014

emoticon Hard work and determination pays off. Trust me!

Usually the "diet" slog in painful and goes on forever. I am trying to make the commitment to a lifestyle change.

It isn't easy. Trying to get in all my planned workouts, pushing a little harder, eating a little less, and staying away from making excuses everyday is a challenge.

But....the reward......looking back and realizing you are doing it. 40 days have gone by already.....I have lost 12 pounds and inches.....I am feeling better about myself and getting stronger to boot.....is it worth it.....HECK YEA!

If you are reading this blog and need motivation let me know. I can help you, one day a time. Hang in there. Dreams plus actions really does equal reality. emoticon
