Friday, August 05, 2011      3 comments

I'm at 19.5 pounds. Then official scale flickered back and forth but finally landed on 202.5. My exercise physiologist gave me the option to pee and get back on but I took my 19.5 pounds. I'll make it to 20 pounds soon enough. But the cool... Read more

So I took a lot of my own advice and gave my body a break as well as my mind. I haven't gotten on the scale much, eating right, and got some rest. I LOVE working out so I know to back off a day or week when I'm not excited. It will pass soon! ... Read more

There have been times in the past when I have wanted to lose weight. I would lose anywhere from 15 to 25 pounds and then go back to the way that I ate before and gain all the weight back. And it was always work to lose that weight. I constantly ... Read more
14 pounds gone, mostly fat!

Only 1 pound away from 15 pounds! But the good news is that I dropped 2% in my fat level! I can feel that I have definitely gotten smaller and the scale isn't showing the progress. That's ok though. I'm feeling good about it all. But I am u... Read more

A few weeks ago when I started off on this journey, I made a blog entry discussing my disappointment at the loss of 5.5 pounds at my first weigh-in. I felt that the time and effort that I put into losing weight wasn't adequately reflected in my ... Read more
