I haven't been here on a while and I miss all of you!! Life has been very busy lately. But all of you would be happy to know that I have continued to work out and I'm still maintaining my goal weight!! I'm happier and healthier! On a darker note, I wanted to share something with all you guys: I found out yesterday that my fiancee's cholesterol was off the charts. I have to say I was pretty shocked because he is only 29. I knew he wasn't living a healthy lifestyle but I honestly thought because he was young it would catch up with him another time...........I hope no one else out there makes the same mistake. Eating foods high in fat and living a sedentary lifestyle is risky, no matter how old you are!! Don't take your lives for granted and be kind to yourselves. Next time you want that chocolate cake or that piece of pizza, please think of the harm it does your bodies! Love yourselves! You guys are worth it!! I hope everyone is doing well with their goals!!

It's hard!! It seemed like all my weight fell off and now, it's like, the fat is screaming noooooooo, it's the last of us, we aren't going down without a fight lady!! One thing I need to do is start logging my calories in again. I am going to do that. I stopped doing it while still eating well, while I was in transition, but I have to now if I am going to drop these last five pounds and tone up the way I want to. This is something I really, really want, and I'm going to get it, because it's well with in my means. Not to mention I have already come this far. Time to buckle down. I want to be at my goal by Christmas, so I can start the new year fit and smoking hot haha!! I want to go into the summer with confidence and wear the tank tops I love. Anyway, this site has been a huge help. Thanks Kathy for reintroducing it to me. And all of you have been a huge help also. Thanks for that and we are all going to get there. I wanted to share something I read with all of you; I read that interval training burns fat faster. I have been doing it myself and it really does work. It's where you get your heart rate up real high and take a break, (lets say your break is crunches) until your heart rate goes back down and then you get it back up again for thirty minutes to an hour. If you guys haven't tried it, you should! It's great!

So, I am at the home stretch of my weight loss journey and I am starting to challenge my body. One hour of cardio instead of thirty minutes, running for the last five minutes of my hour on the treadmill. It feels nice. I figure, what's an hour of my day to lose the weight? Even though it feels like eternity when I'm doing it, it's so wonderful when I get finished. After I lose the amount of weight I want, I'm really going to buckle down with strength training, because what's an hour or two of your day to have a body you always wanted?

So my fiancée has been home now for a while and he eats ALL the time. I mean, I have really never met anyone who stays hungry like this man. This morning I made him an egg, some toast, two sausage links, and a waffle and he was STILL hungry! I make him the lunches I usually eat and he's like, that was a great snack! LOL!
It's not his fault that it's really throwing me off. I can make my own choices but for some reason when I am around him I always feel hungrier. It's the stupidest thing, I know. He also is has a HUGE motivational problem and it's effecting me somehow, making my morale go down? I mean I'm SO close to my goal, and I'm like forget it, it's not going to happen? I know that's crazy talk, though. I need to get the ball rolling again! I mean what happened to my momentum? By some grace of God I actually lost a pound last week, he lost ten!! He's going back to work soon, though, so maybe it will go back to normal, or even better I can learn to resist temptation even when he is around!

I am just now starting to notice all the changes that are taking place in my body as apart of my diet! The arms in my shirts don't feel so tight and I don't have to stretch them, my pants were falling down yesterday, (it was embarrassing) I can smile and not see another chin!!! Man I feel so accomplished! Great actually!! I can't wait to get to my goal!!
