Been busy, but on track and feeling great!

Thursday, February 21, 2013

I've been doing great... on track... Lost what I gained, which is great. Feeling alot better. I've been busy, but what's new? lol

My son's show, Avenue Q is awesome! Soooo hilarious. It's finishing up this weekend and I'm the full-on, supportive mom who is going to all the shows and working the lobby, helping out and loving every minute of it. He's awesome in the show, the other kids are awesome in the show... just great fun! Next show is Chorus Line and there is talk of him doing Guys and Dolls which will be scheduled before Chorus Line opens... So, it's always something.

As for what's been going on with me. Well, I had some pretty cool news. Last year was my "Let's get healthy year"... Resolution came late, March... but it was, let's lose this weight and well, you all know where I am with that... This year, my resolution was... I'm going to write a book on the weight loss journey and I want to get in a magazine with my weightloss story. Well, the "news" is that my sister-in-law ran into someone who works for a very well known magazine and was telling her about my weightloss success... and this magazine happens to have a very well known issue that comes out once a year and I guess this person has the ability to write my story for that issue and made the offer to do so! Sooooo, I am currently MORE motivated to keep on with my journey to keep striving for my goal. We have an email address and an offer, so I'm going to do all in my power to deliver the "goods" so to speak and then it's in God's hands. If it's meant to be, it'll happen. I'm very excited, though!

I needed this boost of motivation, that's for sure. I was just hovering and now I'm NOT. I have been amping up the exercising. At my place of employment, we have an indoor walking path outlined for the employees... it's a loop that includes two floors, connected by two stairwells. I can complete 6 loops in 15 minutes and I've taken to walking on both of my breaks. So, I started Tuesday at my second break and have been going strong ever since. I also have been coming home and walking with my Leslie Sansone walking dvd's as well. 3 miles both yesterday and tonight. I really think that upping the activity will show up on the scale and I'm very excited to see my weigh in on Monday! Even though I do tend to jump on the scale daily...

    You and I are so similar I also want to write a book this year. Not just on weight loss but the difference having a positive outlook and spirit can have on your life. Congrats on the great opportunity I am praying that it comes through!!!!

    Congrats! Just use wisdom and don't overdo things. You have lost a lot of weight very quickly. I'm sure the magazine will feel more comfortable publishing your story if they know there is a doctor okaying things and keeping an eye out. I love your enthusiasm and positive attitude and hope it shines thru! Congrats to your son also. How fun!
