I can not believe this is just about over. I have come a long way with some stuff in my life, that I need to change. Yes I knew how to eat right and execrise but to except thing and telling my self its ok to let it go and move on is it really worth fighting for. I have other things I fighting for and want. and this is one of them

Ammie, Congratulations for your Birthday ! What a good, supportive husband you have. that goes a long way in beating this weight problem. Have fun with the punching bag. My daughter had one and she said it was great exercise. there are some special ways to punch . A boy in my class brought his equipment and taught us boxing techniques. Even shadow boxing with footwork can make you sweat pretty fast. Maybe the internet has videos of beginner boxing moves. We has an opportunity to take a field trip to a Martial Arts Gym. 35 students went and a bunch of staff. I did the sign language interpreting for all these deaf students. It was a fascinating
day! Chris

GOAL: Reduce A1C,BP,tryglicerides,and weight. HOW? By not eating added sugar, using Omega3s, base meals on veggies, water aerobics at least 3X week and using NuStep when I can't get to the pool.

If you have been in your 160s then 6 lbs is definitely a big deal! I'm only able to lose as much as I have because I have SO much to lose and my body is burning more calories just to support the weight I'm carrying now.

Keep up the great work!

I totally forgot to create a Week 7 thread for myself this last week. It was my birthday on Monday--and my husband through a surprise party for me. It was a good week for me all in all--although I didn't get as much cardio as I have been. But, it was a busy week and this weekend we got rid of a lot of stuff in our garage so we are a step closer cleaning it out and setting it up as an office/workout room.

My husband also got me a punching bag for my birthday. I'm really looking forward to working out with it too.

As of this morning I'm 8 weeks into my re-committment to using sparkpeople and eating right and exercising and have lost over 20 lbs in that time.

I feel more committed than ever to making this a permanent healthy lifestyle. I haven't had a soda of any kind in those 8 weeks--I've stuck to my water and I feel good about these changes. That's not to say I don't have the occasional off day. I don't eat perfect every day and sometimes it does get hard. But I'm not giving up. I'm turning to food to cope with stress--and that is a huge step for me.
