I realized this week that my pants are looser! Actually and quantify-ably looser.

I have a large hernia bulge (I look 7-months pregnant as well as fat), and my pant fit--but the waistband hits right on the hernia bulge. Well, okay, that's probably where my waist is supposed to be; however, when wearing those darn knit tops that manufacturers seem to think all fat women want to wear, the waistband really stands out and looks...odd.

This week I realized I can now pull my waistband ABOVE the hernia bulge, creating a smoother line. That means a bunch of fat in the lower torso/hip area has disappeared!

WAHOO!! I just discovered I am still able to do Wii Fit Basic Step and Advanced Step--as long as I use two canes, one on either side of the Wii Fit board. I had a permanent injury 5 years ago that left me unable to balance properly (and associated walking difficulties). Years ago it was the Wii Fit Basic Step that started me on the road to daily exercise--even small amounts. It's like a game to me, and I thought Wii Basic Step was lost to me forever.

But today I did it! With TWO canes, I wasn't even afraid of falling. And then I tried Advanced Step. My score was lousy, but I did it!

I walked a 1.4 mile loop around my neighborhood today after lunch, it took me about 30-40 mins. I walked the same loop again after dinner with my husband.

It's a big deal for me to get my booty out the door and an even bigger deal to get my husband to walk after dinner. He works so hard all day and he just wants to relax when he comes home but I convinced him (and myself) that the walking would be training for when we go to Disney in April. ;)

NSV is that I finally threw away some peppermint Hershey's kisses that I've had since late November. Threw about a fourth of them away. I consider that a major NSV!! Hooray for me.

LOL where is the emoticon that shows one patting yourself on the back???

NSV is deciding that it's time to take care of me!! Time to get my behind in gear and start using all the Wii games that we have bought promising to make good use of them and they are all just sitting there collecting dust.

Not anymore!! Games are dusted off and currently in use!! Smaller portions & more movement = a small slide downwards in scale and great health benefits!!

Yesterday I tried the Basic Run Plus for the first time and I MADE IT the whole way through the run. I have never done this before. I have "too many aches and pains to do that" and I just would not try it It kept telling me I was at a steady pace but I noticed I wanted to run the cat over a couple of times (LOL) I think I may try it again today, At least I hope to do again.

Yoga poses are becoming increasingly easier. Also, I am more aware of muscles whenever I do day-to-day tasks at work.

Discipline is just choosing between what you want now, and what you want MOST.

I'm wearing a pair of jeans that gets looser and looser every time I wear them.

I wash them sometimes in between wearings though. LOL

Hubby wanted to go out for a nice date night on Friday emoticon

So I lay out my outfit, a dress pants, slinky top, and blazer. I get dressed -- the pants are saggy loose, not the effect I wanted. I had to dig in my drawers and find a different pair (still wasn't really happy with them either). The blazer was also too loose, but I wore it anyway.



The other day, I noticed something similar too -- you have that favorite pair of jeans, right? When you put them on the morning, they are nicely snug. But by the afternoon they have softened a bit and are more loose. Now, they start out loose in the morning. In the afternoon, they are saggy loose, swirling at my hips, and actually annoying me.

I guess maybe I need to go shopping soon! emoticon

Today, I had an MRI. That may not seem like a victory, but for me it was. Both of my parents had ruptured cerebral aneurisms when I was in my teens. For years, it has always been in the back of my head that it could happen to me, too. Last Thursday, my neurologist recommended that I get the test done. I'm extremely claustrophobic, so I knew that it would be a challenge. She told me to double my anxiety medication, and have someone drive me to the testing facility. Even with the medication, I was still fighting off a panic attack when they started the machine and it drew me into the little tube. I remembered something that my dad said, about them putting a cloth over the eyes so that you can't see how small the tube is. I asked them to do the cloth, and was able to stay still the entire time. I got through it, without completely panicking. Yay, me!

I have a dress that I've had for awhile that didn't quite fit right it was just a little tight and Saturday I was going to wear it to my granddaughters birthday party and it was too big. I haven't noticed a lot of changes in my size but that sure made me feel good emoticon

I hadn't measured myself since the end of June and when I did, my waist and hips were 3 inches smaller. My weight was only down one pound but that really did make me want to continue on. Finally my waist size is not my age. It will make going to the doc for a check up in November a much happier experience. He measures my waist too!
