Time to get back in the saddle again.

Wednesday, July 08, 2009

The family reunion has come and gone. I made my goal of 125 and was even lower!!

My dad's arm is finally showing some improvement!

It is time to get back on track and get rid of these last 6 pounds.

**edit: I am missing the extra couple of hundred calories emoticon but doing great!

**edit: I am walking 20,000+ steps and trying to keep my calories around 1800 daily - so far this is working great!

I think I just asked someone else this, but I'm trying to get opinions... which kind of pedometer do you use? I've had back luck with pedometers. They keep dying on me even though I change the batteries and everything. Oh yeah, and then there's the part where I through them through the washing machine. Ooops! *giggles* So, which do you use? Was it a good price?

I'm glad your dad is doing well!

    Wow! It's SuperLinda!

With most people, I'd be saying they need to leave themselves more space, but you know, better than anyone else, how much you can do. Sometimes making a space to take care of yourself is the most effective thing, and if this feels right for you, I'm sure it's right for you.

I am VERY impressed!


I'm also thrilled that your dad is out of the hospital and doing better!

I know you have been on an emotional roller coaster lately. I'm so glad things are settling down for you. I'm also glad that you've managed not to gain weight through it all. I guess that your good habits are too ingrained.

I think you look great, but if those last 6 lbs. are important to you then by all means go for it. But don't beat yourself up if it just doesn't happen or if it happens slowly. You really are amazing!!!!
