So close to saying goodbye to the 150s...

Monday, November 08, 2010

Today, I weighed 150.04 lbs. It is amazing how time and effort has changed my life. I remember saying goodbye to the 170s, the 160s and now almost the 150s. Wow, I am actually seeing the end of the tunnel. I no longer have to lose 73 lbs, but 40 lbs now. I am just a few pounds away from my mid-point. Do you remember that commercial we used to have "You've come a long way baby!" well, that's how I feel. I am going to see this through. It has been slow but so well worth it...

Hugs to all!

    It is cool to go back an look at what you weighed at the first of each month when your weight is going down. It's great to see the progress. Congratulations on being almost half way there!

November will be a better month for me!

Sunday, October 31, 2010

Although I exercised a lot in October, I also ate a bit more than I usually do. Therefore, starting tomorrow, I will keep within my calorie range and will continue exercising as I've been doing and more... To beat this weight off of me, I need to shake it down and throw it out of the window. November is my month! emoticon emoticon and will also emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    You are so right about needing to keep in range with eating even when exercising more. Our plans for November are the same on that score!

We're invited out tonight!

Saturday, October 30, 2010

Although I do enjoy going out, we're going out to dinner tonight and I just found that out!!! Already, I have basically eaten my allotted calories for the day... Well, I will be careful tonight with my food choices (eat grilled, salads without the dressing and no dessert). Tomorrow is another day and I will burn the extra calories eaten, maybe not all tomorrow but throughout the week. I also want to exercise right after my blog so...

    Hey, sometimes you've got to splurge. And, you can burn off the extra calories.

    I think once in a while you can enjoy a night out, sure make healthy choices but it's an evening out Lise

Have a good time.....then back on track, no knee jerk reaction and over exercising, any minute gain will be temporary

    I agree with one of the other comments, you could easily go out and eat that grilled salad with some dressing, if you maybe were going out for dancing afterwards? That would definitely be a way to burn off some of what you have eaten! I say go out and enjoy yourself. It really does take a lot to gain weight from one night of going out! I have done that off and on for the whole year I have been on Spark People, and I can honestly say, that as long as you get back on track the next day, I have never gained any weight from doing that. It's when you continue to stay off track after your night out of fun! emoticon emoticon emoticon

Be Who You Are

Wednesday, October 27, 2010

Here's another excerpt which is another gentle reminder for us all...


Let the true spirit of who you are
shine through in all that you do.
Let your hopes and dreams
always guide you in the direction
that you definitely believe in.
Let the love that is within your heart
never stop being the most important
and beautiful part of your life.
Travel through time not as one alone,
but as one among the many;
reach out to those who need your
gentle spirit and caring ways.
Make your passage through time
an endless journey of love.

We Each Have the Power to Choose...

Wednesday, October 20, 2010

I have taken the following excerpt from a book entitled "Is It Time to Make a Change?" by Deanna Beisser.

We Each Have the Power to Choose

The wind changes directions a hundred times or more a day.
It has no goal or focus to be anything more than itself.
The wind is free to come and go as it pleases.
But people, on the other hand, have an inner desire to accomplish,
to achieve, to be productive.
It is a human quality that enables people to select
which way they want to go and to determine how fast or how
slow their journey will be.
People have the power to choose the roads they will travel.
They must never forget that they are in control of their lives.

So let the wind blow in your face and circle around you
as you live day to day, but know in your heart
that you are the one, the only one, who really knows which
way the wind blows for you.
