Breakthrough At Last!

Saturday, May 02, 2009

After 10 months, I have finally broken through the 206.5 plateau! I hit 206.5 back in June 2008 and there I stayed bouncing around. Two weeks ago the scale started to budge in the downward direction. Only a little at first, but this last week it has steadily been dropping. Today, was my weigh in of record. 201.6!

What am I doing differently?

I started being very faithful with my record keeping at the beginning of April. My nutrition chart looked like a mountain range. “I’ll be good tomorrow” became “I’ll be good today” on April 16 (see blog entry). Now my calorie chart looks more like the Flint Hills where I live. The peaks are closer to goal.

Exercise. Two weeks ago I started making an effort to exercise. At least 15 minutes of walking a day. Crunches. I hate them, but they make a difference. I started on Friday last. That way the soreness was reasonable by work on Monday. I have continued for a week now.

    Yay! Great work! That is so awesome to hear! I'm so proud of you! What a testimony to making changes and sticking with it!

    Seriously - I am doing a little *happy dance* for you!

    Its hard to come to terms with whats not working, and make changes. It's inspiring to hear you were able to go from "I'll be good tomorrow", to "I'll be good today".


    (and crunches kill me, I swear I'm missing the gene that makes doing crunches possible)
