Shedding for the Dress

Monday, February 27, 2012

Wow it has been a bit since I have bloged and I miss it but I have been reading some good blogs out there that is for sure and it always motivates me .

Yes Anita is going to wear a dress for Easter I had decided that back in January, I have not wore a dress in 18 years. Yes 18 maybe even longer which I think it is.

But when I decided on doing that loser program at my gym I said to my self that buying dress for Easter was going to be my reward because the Challenge will be ending right before then. I have put some goals into action one of them was to lose 30 which I don't think that is going to happen, I have only lost 7 lbs in 4 weeks it is just so slow..however I have learned to live with it. I am doing everything right I am eating with in my calorie range but one thing I am not doing is letting the stress go away so .. new plan of action for the rest of the challenge is to stop stressing.
I am seeing a diffrence in my self as my little saying on my spark page says that it takes 4 weeks for you to see a diffrence and 6 for your friends and family and 12 for the rest of the world, So I am seeing and feeling a diffrence in me, I can work out longer at the bootcamp sessions, I can run more I can lift more weight
my legs feel toner. So yes it is working
now on to the dress. yes I am shedding for that dress I know it will not be a size 10 but it wont be a size 28 either but I have one in mind or what I want and when I find it I am going to wear it with pride. and that is were what I was challenged to think about today was the word "Destination" yes that is my destination to ware that dress and I am going to get there because I am going to try.

Thank everyone for the support I know it will happen because we all make it happen.

I can tell in your new picture that you are shedding! It might not be showing up on the scale, but I can see it. That's probably because you are buidling muscle with all the training you are doing. Muscle takes up less space than fat, so you are shedding inches! Take your measurements, Girlfriend, and forget what the scale says for awhile. You're gonna ROCK that dress!

    Great job Anita! Seven pounds in four weeks fits right into that 1-2 pounds per week, so I celebrate that with you. Congratulations on your consistency, and on building a healthier life for you - which translates into a healthier life for your family.

Be the change you wish to see ~ M. Ghandi
