Hips: down 1 inch
Waist: down 1/2 inch
Weight: Unknown

I am not ready to step on a scale, I have only been on this trend of 2 days a week fitness classes for now 6 weeks. I am not ready to know if I have dropped any weight and I am perfectly happy to see inches.

It takes time, it takes effort, it takes stamina...all of which I have none of but I still get up and go. My running is on hold, this heat and humidity is just to much for me to take but I do manage to make those 2 classes a week.

Sadly in 5 days I will be no longer employed :( I will be most likely going back to school to take some upgrades to courses. It looks like a possible student loan debt will be encountered but it just feels good to know I finally am going to college at 36.

Also the unemployment for the time being means I can go to Florida to visit Ma best friend. I haven't seen him in 5 years. I can not wait and although I am not 100% satisfied with my body I know I will be happy and proud to show it off regardless on the beach. I also am going to increase fitness classes, I will have more free time and can attend a few more of the classes that are offered. I think I may also get int he pool as well. I can not wait for the hot tub! lol

One step at a time but yet results. My next step in my journey is to take a look at the eal plans and see what I can do to work with those. Food has always been my enemy, and by enemy I mean not eating enough. I look forward to more knowledge.

What are your steps? where are you at now? Where are you headed?

Remember: When life hands you lemons, squirt juice in your enemies eyes!

    Congrats on the inches lost! That's HUGELY GREAT!!! Good job!!! I'm glad you are proud of yourself as you should be!!!

I understand how "food can be the enemy", but is it REALLY? It's easy to place blame on things other than ourselves, and from my own personal experience...I can say that my weight-gain was my fault, and my fault ALONE. It's a lack of self-control for me... and I'm a bit of a glutton/ food ISN'T the enemy as it nourishes my body.... it's myself. I'm my own enemy.

Taking my story as an example, I think it might be good to address those thoughts so you are putting your focus on the right things and making the changes that are necessary and most effective for you.

My steps are "baby steps"... one little success at a time...being as positive as possible... and I'm working hard to get there! My blog describes this over an over.

I hope you are doing well and have a lovely time on vacation when you have that! Also, good luck with all of your new endeavors! You CAN DO THIS!
