Just pluggin along... :)

Monday, February 11, 2013

Can't believe how long it's been, since I have blogged!! Wow! Time flies so fast. :(

I joined WW on January 23rd, 2013. I have been so religious about tracking my food since I've joined, it's not even funny. So far, I have lost 7lbs in 3 weeks. That's more than I've been able to do on my own in the last 4 years. So, altogether, since I joined SparkPeople in 2008, I have lost 19lbs! I am happy with my progress! I have never ate so many fruits and veggies in my life, but now I actually reach for them, before I reach for anything else. Maybe it's because they are 0 points and I know that I can have 2 or 3 in a setting and I will be satisfied that I ate a lot... who knows. I am starting to have more energy. I was trying to get my eating under control, before I stepped up my exercise. I have to do this one thing at a time. :) Now that I am starting to lose the weight (I've already lost 2" just in my waist), I am feeling comfortable enough to go to the Y. I hate going by myself..., it's no fun. I also know that I need to get sleep. So, trying to work everything in, has been a little chaotic. But, I know I can do this. I know that if I just put my mind to it and get the cardio and strength training in, while tracking the things I eat, I will be at my goal in no time. :) Things I've known all along, but never enforced.

Thanks for visiting my page, and for all of your support. WW is me trying to get the eating under control, but having all of you in my life is the best part of my weight loss journey. Thanks to each and every one of you, and you know who you are!! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Thank you, to the both of you! I'm so glad that the both of you are my friends and that I have your support. :) Couldn't do this without you! emoticon

    Julie, what is "early"? I am usually getting off work about 7 to 7:30 and then the only time I could make it up there after that, would be after 9am. I have to take my kiddo to school. :)
