To think I may have made a difference to some of you is rewarding in itself and I am truly honoured . <BR> <BR> All I ca... Wed, 27 Aug 2008 18:28:32 EST The pay off! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=1324977 I was getting dressed this morning and about to put on a pair of reliable fitting jeans! You all know about those jeans! They fit regardless! Well, I am kinda bored of those jeans. The weather is beautiful and I felt good this morning and since I lost a total of 15 lbs since January, I wanted to wear something sexy today! So I started digging into my closest and found a pair of black sleek skinny fit jeans that I have worn one time before I put back the weight. <BR> <BR> I almost thrashed t... Thu, 10 Jul 2008 13:43:31 EST A day for remembering. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=1263693 Today is June 11th,which would have been my sister's 52nd birthday had she survived the breast cancer that took her from us on Jan 1, 2000 at 44 yrs old. 8 years is a long time to be without my best friend. She was only 13 months older than I and when we were kids we fought & hated each other something fierce. As adults we were inseparable. Everything we did, we did together. I really miss her. <BR> I have no children, and she had trouble conceiving, but after 10 years of trying and emotion... Wed, 11 Jun 2008 12:16:52 EST Am I making any progress? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=1211497 I got inspired to write this blog on my progress in reply to Kissie's post to me on the Scuba team. <BR> ----------------------------------------<BR>--------------------------------------<BR>------- <BR> <BR> The scale is still not moving, not 1 lb in 5 weeks! <BR> <BR> I am eating within my calories, on the low end most days. When I over eat on the weekend I am still within my calorie range but on higher end.( 1200-1500) <BR> <BR> I do feel the muscles underneath the layer of jiggle on...

Can't seem to get the scale to budge even with all this working out! I know I am supossed to be patient but it's been weeks now with no progress. On a good note I do feel those muscles underneath and my arms are looking pretty good. My boyfriend commented last night on the definition there he never saw before. <BR> On top of which I pulled another muscle in my neck and was so sore last night I couldn't even get on the elliptical. I have been working my legs alot trying to... Tue, 29 Apr 2008 09:24:59 EST Did I actually give up Key Largo for a home gym? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=1126365 All of you in the Scuba team know that I recently bought an elliptical trainer last week and had my eye on a new home gym. So here we go to the fitness equipment store on Saturday to have another look at this beautiful machine, measuring it out with thoughts of coming back for it sometime in the future. But no! We have to have it now! The store manager tempts us with a small discount and says he can deliver it on Sunday. WooHoo!My boyfriend and I are looking at each other trying to justify th...
