I made up for the days I didn't exercise!

Monday, August 23, 2010

I did not exercise on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. I was active but not with exercise. We entertained this last weekend so I was busy in the kitchen, washing dishes, etc. Today, I exercised for 170 minutes in total which I'm happy about. It did affect my weight loss though because I am still at the same weight as last week. This coming week, it will be exercise every single day without any excuses! Voila! Well, see you around folks. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Yes, this is a picture of my progress to date. I have lost over 28 lbs and it shows. My husband was happy to see the difference between December 2008 and now.

Oh yes, I am seeing this to the end...

It is encouraging!

Sunday, August 15, 2010

My progress is slow but the weight is coming off. My husband was mentioning the other day after I had finished my daily workout, that when I will reach my goal, I will be firm and not flabby. He truly encourages me to continue along this path. It is not that I need encouragement because I am determined to do this for myself, but the cheering on is always nice. I am now 7.48 lbs from my mid-weight point. Once I reach there, I will treat myself. Yes, let us continue with this enjoyable struggle (if there is such a thing!). Love you all! emoticon

Relieved!

Friday, August 06, 2010

After over one year of Spark People, my husband (and niece) have decided to stop eating big meals at night. My husband was really getting a paunch and it bothered me a lot because I was concerned for his health. Some of his clothes no longer fit him and knowing him as I do, this bothered him immensely as he loves to dress up. He is now working out twice daily and watching his carbohydrate intake which was very high before. It's a relief to see progress along this line, I can assure you. I am glad that I had an impact on the members of my family.

I am no longer worried about myself because I know I will see this through the end. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

I feel like a new woman!

Sunday, August 01, 2010

I have been overweight for going on twenty years now and obese within this last ten years. The pounds just added up gradually without my realizing it and probably also, I was in denial of this happening to me.

The moment of truth came when celebrating our 40th wedding anniversary in a hotel resort in the country we live in, we took some pictures and I realized that the person in green was actually ME!!! I did not like what I saw and decided that it was time I took control of the situation. I did!

The progress has been a slow one (25 lbs since late April 2009) but it has been well worth it.

A number of years ago, my husband traveled to Viet Nam and as he usually does, he got me some clothing. Sure he got the big sizes because I was overweight but although they were marked as XL, they did not fit me. I was so disappointed... Truthfully speaking, these clothes were wrongfully marked -- Vietnamese people are small people and their XL sizes would fit a middle-sized person. Well, I did try on an outfit and it fit me!!! My husband was so happy to see the clothes finally being worn. So I went out with a friend of mine and I felt great wearing this new 'old' outfit that I had never worn before. It feels great and I feel like a new woman. When this sort of experience happens to me, I find it so encouraging and I WILL continue doing the right things for me.

Yes, I do feel like a new woman! emoticon

    Whew, I too have a few items that I look forward to wearing one day, and boy will my head be held high, one of the outfits is 4 sizes away. emoticon I noticed it didn't happen overnight for you and so I am encouraged by your story.
