90 Pounds!! Woo Hoo!!

Wednesday, March 27, 2013

I'll keep it short. This blog is purely self indulgent. I wanna share my success and do the happy dance where everyone can see it.

Hmmm. They say, "Pride goes before the fall." I don't care though because I know I deserve my little party.

It hit me this morning after I tracked my weight that I only have 10 more pounds before reaching the 100 pound mark. Holy freakin' cow!!! And only 15 more pounds before I reach Onderland!!! It seems so close...within reach for once. I want to touch it and taste it and roll around in the glory of my healthy new body.

I'm going to admit though that this loss is a pure fluke. I haven't been consistently tracking or eating or exercising this week. That worries me. I've been distracted. Distracted to the MAX. I haven't had an appetite. Haven't wanted to eat. I did go to a new yoga class Monday, and forced myself to do my C25K training and Zumba class last night.

What am I saying??? I LOVE my Zumba class. I never thought I would say that. The moves are finally clicking. And I feel sexy and strong and moderately coordinated. (Okay, partially coordinated--which is a huge step up from totally uncoordinated!) And yes, I have seen that picture that shows what I think I look like when I go to Zumba and what I ACTUALLY look like when I go to Zumba. I'm sure that is me to a tee. No false illusions here.

I have to give credit to two things for this latest weight loss spurt: Zumba and my new Heart Rate Monitor. Accuracy makes a huge difference for me.

After work, I'm going to Zappos with a friend to buy some new heels. YAY!!! Reward for me!

Hey, I can finally wear heels. Huge NSV. Huge. I'm a professional. I need to wear heels. I WANT to wear heels.

Have a great day SparkFriends! I sure am.

    That is SO awesome, congratulations my friend! I like that heels were your reward. One of mine was knee high boots. It's funny how you don't realize HOW badly you want to wear something, especially when you can't. NOW I want to wear them all the time, lol!

    Congrats! Wonderful success! And heels are a great NSV! Once you get use to wearing 'em for work you start to feel "naked" without 'em!

    This is awwwwesome! Sometimes it takes a shuffle in your routine to see a drop in the scale like that. A lot of weeks when I work hard, it doesn't show. But other weeks where I don't feel like I work as hard, the scale will drop. But regardless, it's always great to see. Definitely enjoy it and keep working at it! You're so close to so many goals!

    AMAZING!!!! CONGRATULATIONS!!! That is such wonderful, wonderful news and a great victory! You SHOULD be shouting it from the rooftops, you deserve to be recognized for all your hard work! And who cares if you've been distracted -- as long as you aren't being unhealthy! Maybe it's just that you've gotten to the point where healthy habits are so ingrained that you do them without thinking, huh huh?

Kudos on wearing heels, because I sure can't! Mostly because I've got big, flat Flintstone feet and really don't feel like I have much balance in sneakers, let alone heels! Good for you!
