Luck wins the Lottery - work loses the weight

Saturday, February 07, 2009

I am learning - realizing more every day that if I really want to lose weight - get back to the slim me of my younger adult life, it is REALLY up to ME - no one else can do it for me, I am not just going to step on the scale one morning and find out that I was "lucky" enough to lose 10 pounds over night. I have to work my tail off (literally) to see results. It is not easy - I really have to work hard for every pound. I talked to a trainer one day - she told me that she didn't understand why for all the work - I am doing - why the weight wasn't coming off quicker. Well I don't get it either - but I do know that I am earning every pound gone and it feels good. I don't mind hard work - and I have learned to love the exercise "high". And the work is paying off - I stepped on the scale this morning and another pound is gone - never to return - I can be proud of what I am accomplishing. I am getting stronger every day - my endurance is increasing and I can see that there is muscle hiding under the fat - LOL! I am going to have to get some new clothes one of these soon days because my pants are getting looser - yeah!!!

    That is a great saying...

    Wouldn't weight loss by osmosis be nice?
    It' not gonna happen like that, so you're so right... work loses the weight!

    Hey, there Kris!! You're one AMAZING lady- that's fer' sure and fer' certain!! Read your entire 11 pages of blogging the day b4 yesterday and... your life, your family, your sweet niece (went to her site) you're just... truly one FANTASTIC person, Kris. I just feel so blessed to have had the privilege to peek into A REAL GENUINE HEROINE'S LIFE- and that's what you are in my book, girly-girl!

    emoticon on that pound, and ya' know what? I have a couple of fresh new articles in my 'save' on my page that talk about EXACTLY what you're going through on the weight loss thing. Are you eating up to (not under) your range? If not, it slows weight loss. There's some other 'stuff' on that too...

    anyway... better 'trot' off (heehee) to get something done today- been doing a lot of rearranging to fit mom and dad's things comfortably in the house... just nicking the tip of the ice berg, so far.

    alright-y then Ms 'sister of the chocoholics' check out some of my chocolate recipes I've found and the one I shared on Jennifer's Healthy Hearts Challenge for a cocoa drink.

    Blessings on YOU and YOURS, oh, and Good Luck in the Leprechaun Challenge!!
