I really CAN do this

Saturday, November 12, 2011

Update - the wedding dress fit! AND I shed inches all over the place. I think I will stay away from scales. Every time I weighed myself I didn't really see any progress but when I put the dress on, they had to put pins in to make a lot more alterations then we had anticipated. I couldn't believe it.

It's amazing because i had the mentality that the only way to lose weight was to go running for an hour a day. Once I couldn't do that any more, i had sort of lost hope. A funny thing happened, I stopped being so hard on myself and started appreciating the things I can do! Swing dancing has been fun and a new way to spend time with my fiancee.

Trying out new machines at the gym. I am still enjoying yoga (who knew). I'm still not a big fan of weights but I do it two times a week. My dog is getting in shape too. We take her out 3 times a day. Have implemented a 100 steps rule after every meal.

While I still longingly stare at the runners (Yes runner's envy), I hope to one day get to that point again. I am steadily shedding inches and doing it at a reasonable rate.

    You sound terrific! I fall into the same problem of not seeing any progress with the scale. I spoke to the training manager at the gym a week or so ago. He asked how much weight I've lost and when I told him 13 pounds (in 7 months) he looked surprised. He said I've lost a lot of inches. I haven't really been taking measurements. At my highest weight my measurements were just too discouraging.
