Still not in the 140s but it's not due to not trying...

Thursday, November 11, 2010

I am still exercising on a regular basis because I can no longer do otherwise. It is amazing how one's capacities can grow with time. I used to do the Jane Fonda Step and Abdominal workout (l hour long) and I used to get so tired but now, I feel great doing it. I no longer have to take short breaks, I just go on and on. Apart from that today, I did 75 minutes of strength training on the lower body. Around 5:30 p.m. I'm going out for a 3.8 mile walk. It's not from a lack of trying that I am still in the 150s. I will get there 'by hook or by crook'. Love y'all!

    I was just thinking the same thing about endurance as I went for a 6 mile walk today. It's truly a "use it or lose it" type thing. Congratulations on building up your endurance and strength. You will get to your weight goal with all the exercise you are doing.

    You'll be in the 140's before you know it.I say that about running. People always ask me how can you run that far and that long? I tell them that I wasn't always able to at one point. I just kept at it and pushed myself until I was able to reach that level. I tell them that I used to struggle badly with 2km now I can do 10k without the blink of an eye, and I even did 21.1k smiling through out the run.

emoticon you are doing great!

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!

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

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...

    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
