New Year's Resolutions

Sunday, January 04, 2009

2009 a brand new year, and I hope a brand new me. Well, I think this is the secret desire of everybody, I am not the only one. I have to share with you many things that happened this past year. I did great, I was able to go down in size and weight. I did not reached my goal, but I did something positive with myself. Unfortunately at the end of the year I had back problems that made difficult to exercise, at my age this is essencial to keep the weight off, no matter that I eat healthy lbs just start piling up if I do not burn those sturburn calories. I decided to eat whatever came into my hands (Not overdoing it, of course) and start all over again now in January. Now I am back into my exercise routine. You will see more of me here at SP. I hope to continue receiving and giving the needed support to reach our goals and have a great 2009 not just for me but for you, and your loved ones. I pray that this year, if you have not reached your goal, this will be the year to say I DID IT!!!. Love and best wishes from me. Yolyta

Ups and Downs

Monday, August 11, 2008

In every road there are ups and downs, I have been so excited with the progress I have achieved so far. Just last week I have to face a real bump in my road to a healthier life. Last week my blood pressure went really high, I was so scared that I almost stopped every rigorous activity. I did not exercise, but kept eating the right way (by this time it is not in my mind to eat the way I used to), I kept drinking water and pray that I will be able to return to my old routine of more than two hours of exercise daily. One thing that I have not stopped is my activity here at SP, Latinos Cafe is so active that I have to keep up with them. If there were not the way they are, probably I would have stopped completely and wait until a miracle would happen. I keep my faith and continue working toward my goal. I know I will reach it.

    Keep up the good work. You need to be in contact with your doctor before you resume your exercise. But, keep eating healthy. You will get there. We all will . . . if we keep trying. Look at Susana. Bless her heart. She worked so hard to get that last pound off. But, she did it, and you will too.

I am making progress

Saturday, July 19, 2008

Well, we are at the middle of July, I have to evaluate how far I have come since I started my jorney to a healthier life, to a slimmer me. So far, I haven't loose any pound since the beginning of June. It seems that the balance has a problem.... lol. I keep raising the bar. I do work hard toward my goal of lowering my blood pressure, the doctor does not want me to stop it. (Since I started with my workouts, I decided I did not needed the medicine, in my last check up, she said to continue with it. ) I started this week to take it, what a difference!!!., I preffer to be without medications, I feel much better without it.
I wear smaller cloths now and look forward to the day when I can see a completely flat stomach. I have raised my weights too. Generally I can say I have made progress!!!!!! Yes, I have done it, I will share with you the day when I reach my goals.
1. To lower my blood pressure.
2. Have conquered my sweet tooth
3. A slimmer me!!!!!!!

A New Beginning

Monday, June 30, 2008

It feels sooooo good to hear the following expression " You look so good, what have you been doing?" or this one "You look different, happier, younger....." that increases your selfconfidence and more important this is the pay off to your daily hardwork, to all the times you said not to bad choices, to all the times when you did not feel like working out. It feels sooooo good. I start my sixth month in this journey to a healthier life and I have been already rewarded with these comments, What about you?

My latest picture

Tuesday, June 10, 2008

I feel so happy, I have progressed a lot. Last year I wore this capri and thankfully winter weather came so soon that I could not wear it any longer (it was to thight to tell you the truth), but now look at this picture, it is really loose I can take it off without unzipping it!!!. I have checked my measurements and I have lost 7" from my hips, my goal is not quite fulfilled though. I am not stopping any soon, I have been praying for strenght to go on with this goal, for motivation and for health, the Lord has been so good to me I found Joyce Vedral's workouts, Sparkpeople and my dearest team members who have given me the courage and motivation to continue raising the bar and not stopping, believing in myself and keeping the faith. Thanks to SP, and all the team members whose words have given me the courage and a good smile during the journey.

    What a GREAT picture - I know we all wish we we that far along. Save those pants for a day when you feel blue, tempted to quit, or just tired of celery. I'm sure they'll bring a smile to your face and uplift your heart. Congratulations.
