Smile Naked
Monday, May 30, 2011      13 comments

One thing came up at my Weight Watcher's meeting this week and keeps going through my head. It was said that losing weight makes you look better in clothes, but exercise makes you look better naked! Hey, there may be something to that. Makes me... Read more
Applies to Me this Week

My heart rate monitor (HRM) acted funny earlier this week and it kind of scared me. Also, I have a head cold and didn't feel great. So this is the first week in months I am not over the 1800 calories I committed to burn each week. Today I... Read more

I left the Community Team last week. I don't think that is a negative thing. For a while I was just feeling so great about losing weight that on the positive side, spreading the message was very top of my mind. And on the not so positive, fears ... Read more

I've been at a healthy BMI (under 25) for 26 months now. I decreased my official Weight Watcher goal from 155 to 148 to 139. I've now been 139 or under for 19 months. For 2010 I set a personal goal to stay under135 and did it. For 2011 I sat my... Read more

Well, I finally figured out how to use my heart rate monitor. I just did a 10 minute warm up, 30 minute run, and then I planned to do a 10 minute cool down. But it was so much fun watching my heart rate drop that I ended up doing 5 extra really ... Read more
Good Week

I just weighed in at Weight Watchers at 126.6 fully clothed and after light breakfast. I ate out several times this last week and did not deprive myself, so I feel pretty good about my weigh in today. I did my 3 runs and 3 cross training s... Read more
Little Disappointment, Lot of Encouragement

I met with the Wellness Coach at the YMCA for the first time since December. Today I was three pounds below what I weighed at our last appointment. I was a little disappointed that my body fat percentage (26.8%) did not change significantly tho... Read more

I have often described myself as an award junkie. I've been known to go to almost ridiculous lengths to achieve some pathetic certificate or trifling ribbon. But today I received some sincere and significant recognition that felt positively wond... Read more

Today as I was packing up to go to the gym, I realized something. I've gotten much better at packing up to go to the gym! My gym has lockers, but they are day use only, so you have to take everything each time. I carry my walking/running s... Read more

You know, I should not have even let those "Old Lady Skinny" comments get to me as much as they did. It was like I knew intellectually that the mean comment was just not relevant for me, but it still bothered me, even though I was trying hard to... Read more
Old Lady Skinny !?!!
Sunday, May 15, 2011      20 comments

I was told today by an online acquaintance that I am "old lady skinny." There may be a grain of truth in her comment. It might be actually easier for me now to eat normally than when I had the challenge of monthly hormonal fluctuations. She went... Read more

Last evening hubby and I attended United Way's Belt Buckle Bash. We took a hayride all around a horse ranch, listened to good (not usually my kind of music, but I was in the mood) country music, had a very good BBQ dinner in a big auction barn,... Read more

Last evening my hubby and I had a great time with our local SparkTeam, eating at a local restaurant. There were eight of us and we've all known each other for a year or so and are very comfortable. We had good conversation and many laughs. I fee... Read more
