I saw it!
It was there on the scale this morning. 159.5. Wow. THe 150s - this is truly something I never thought I would see when I really got serious in January 2010. I thought I'd be doing good if I could get below 200, and would be in heaven at 180!

I'm so close I can taste it! My weigh in this morning was 160.0. So if I lose ANYTHING next week, I'll be in the 150s!
This is HUGE for me. Earlier this year, I had set a goal to be into the 150s before our 10-year anniversary trip in Oct (... Read more
Time to Recommit
I had a big time wake up call this week. I mean, I know that I haven't been perfectly on track lately, and it's show in having my weight creep down just a couple pounds since the end of January.
Well, this week it was time again for measure... Read more
We're having our annual health fair at work starting at the beginning of May, and recently my trainer asked me if she could show before & after photos of me, along with a statement of what I've done with the help of the fitness center. It'll be ... Read more
Ending 2010 44.5 lbs Lighter
Woo hoo! After lots of sweat, hard work, and will power, I am ending 2010 44.5 lbs lighter than I started it. I will admit that there is a part of me that wasn't sure I could lose even 10 lbs when I started, let alone 40, so I'm very happy with ... Read more
According to BMI, that is. Today, I officially hit the magic BMI number of 29, so I am now "overweight" instead of "obese." While BMI is not my favorite measurement tool (I honestly don't know if I'll ever be considered "normal" given my body ty... Read more
Weekly Report - 10/15 - 10/21/10
This week was rough on the eating front - I definitely didn't do as well as I'd like. Partly because I was STARVING all week. Not sure why. I ended up being up a lb for the week, which is especially disappointing because I was down a half pound ... Read more
Weekly Report - 10/8 -10/14
This week was up & down, but ended on a big down when I was down 2 lbs for the week! That felt very very good & I'm hoping will put me on track to make good progress in the last few weeks before vacation -- and the end of a full year of focusing... Read more

Well, I knew that post-work event would throw me off. It just wasn't in the way I thought it would. There wasn't much food there, so by the time I left at a little after 8, I was STARVING. But since I just wanted to get home, I ended up running ... Read more

I got nothin'! You got it, I didn't exercise today & I didn't track my food. And BOY did it feel good.
Back to it tomorrow, starting with a workout with my trainer bright & early. Lunch (& snacks) are packed up & ready to go, so here's to a... Read more

So I think I'm ready to tackle my first full week of this self-imposed challenge. Was feeling a little bummed yesterday, but I still managed to stay mostly on track (just had 1 extra piece of pizza...).
Today was my 1st weekend day of track... Read more
So I'm up .5 for this week. Really not bad at all, but I'm still a little bummed. When I started this pre-vacation challenge for myself, I had already basically thrown away the weekend. So on Monday I was up to 183 from 179.5. Then even though I... Read more

Well, I survived another day. Gotta say, I'm really struggling with the lower nutrition ranges. I'm eating good food, but I'm STARVING when I stay within range. I'm gonna keep at it, though & hope my body adjusts soon.
Here's how the day we... Read more
