Still no weight loss - but pushing hard towards the finish line

Sunday, November 25, 2012

The self-imposed finish of my 40 day plan is Dec. 11. Unfortunately I had to save all the hard work until now because first a cold kept me from exercising for about 3 weeks and then I started to get allergy symptoms and then I ate a little more over Thanksgiving. My weight stayed at about 131 pounds through all of this, not bad given everything. Now I will give it a final push for the next 17 days. My swimming is up to 1400 yards today and increasing by 200 yards every time I go, about 3 times/week. My running is slow at the moment but I'm increasing distance slowly from 2 miles yesterday up to 6 miles in about 2 weeks. Strength training is happening again, too, although with slightly smaller weights. If I can stay on plan with both eating and exercise I should be able to drop at least another 3 pounds, maybe as much as 5 pounds with most of that being body fat, putting me right where I want to be for maintenance. emoticon
After that maintaining should be easy as long as I'm healthy.

    Great on you for not giving up. The scale may not show it yet but you are making progress with your swimming and strength training. You are an inspiration. :)

    Very exciting to be so near your goal, I can almost hear the positive energy coming off this blog entry. ;-) I marvel at how you are able to be so devoted to exercise. I can't do it other than walking the dogs daily. Just bores me to tears. Good thing I have to work so hard on our property or I wouldn't get any. I'm trying to kick myself into taking up yoga again and going to the pool once a week. You inspire me, as always.

You are doing so great and the plan is wonderful! I love how you just go with the flow and bounce back with looking ahead so positive. Great to see someone who is doing so well so close to maintenance and keeping the attitude so positive and productive! It is working for you! What a positive person you are! I enjoy reading from you, so much. I know many who could learn from your example! emoticon
