So, wow. Yeah, I did it. I'm still kind of in shock.
I'm stunned. I bought shirts at the mall today. They fit right off the rack. They were on sale, 2 for $12.
I cannot tell you the last time I did that. I might have been in middle sc... Read more
That can't be right...
I stepped on the scale and saw 303.
"That can't be right", I said, and I enjoyed it, but I knew it would probably bounce back up.
Then I got back on the scale Friday for my "normal" weigh in...308.
A little bump backwards, but at ... Read more
Seriously, it's Thanksgiving day and I've lost another 15 pounds. :)
Even better is that my Mom dug out my old High School letter jacket - it's almost 15 years old...and I actually fit back into it again. How cool is that? ... Read more
Been a bit since I wrote in here.
I'm really proud to say that I've been sticking to the diet (cheat day is a GODSEND), working out, walking (I've increased my "average" walking pace to a 19 minute mile - my personal best so far is 15!), a... Read more
I didn't have to weigh in today - I usually weigh in on Friday mornings - but I beat my alarm this morning and decided "Why not?", so I made the trudge to the bathroom, took a deep breath, and stepped onto the scale.
For the first time sinc... Read more
It took almost two months, but I'm now within 2 pounds of the goal I set when I originally joined Sparkpeople. :)
It feels amazing. I truly feel like I've made a huge accomplishment. I certainly know my general health is much, much better ... Read more
20 more pounds since the last time I updated here. :)
I'm mixing the "Slow Carb" diet from 4 hour body with a lot of the general health and fitness tips from Sparkpeople. plus a bit of calorie counting so I still understand HOW MUCH I'm eat... Read more
I weighed in at the gym today at 384.
It's significant for several reasons.
First, it's another 6 pounds gone. :) I'm proud of that.
It also means I'm within 35 pounds of my first "really big" goal, and that's exciting.
The b... Read more
That felt incredible. I know it will be hard to keep that off during the holidays, but I think if I keep working at it, I can do it!... Read more
My trainer asked me to come in for another fitness assessment, just like the one we did before I started my workout program.
It's been three months. The progress is startling.

2 pounds doesn't sound like much. But the difference between 401 and 399? Is huge.
Due to a cold snap here, I had to pull out a pullover last night.
This pullover was bought for me last Christmas. It fit then - maybe even a little snug... Read more

Measurement of Success
After I went in this morning for a circuit training session (OW! - but in a good way!), the trainer asked me if I was still planning to come back in the afternoon for yoga as well.
When I confirmed that I was, he asked me to come in about a... Read more
You just keep going
Up to three weeks of going to the gym, now. It's starting to feel like a really good, natural part of my routine. I'm also starting to notice where I feel a bit more definition and less fat in parts of my body. I actually kind of had a "Wow, I'm... Read more
That Was Unexpected
Like I mentioned, I joined a gym near where I work and I've been going to their yoga classes before I start moving up to doing more strength training and spinning.
Yesterday at class, a woman from where I work joined up. I don't know her th... Read more
