Earlier this week I ran for 10 minutes (in 1 to 3 minute chunks) during my 60 minute walk!

when I sent my kids outside to play today, I went out with them. I walked around and made sure I stood and not sat. That was a huge victory for me today!

Day 1 of no Starbucks... I substituted with a gas station cappacino, but only drank half and then just water. It's small, but it's a step in the right direction!

Today I got out of bed by 8am. This is a victory for me because I never have anything "to do" until after 10. So getting up and being productive early is new. And I did it naturally, not begrudgingly.

To see some of my poetry, and get to know the real me...

This week, when I needed to get something to eat during the workday, I went to a local bagel place for a bagel with cream cheese instead of McDonalds for a meal plus a burger. I am sure that resulted in 1000 less calories, and it was just as satisfying (if not more so in a certain way because I'd rather put my money to local businesses).

This may sound so simplistic, but for me it's important to my health. I am anemic and have had little to no energy for almost all of 2014. (it was not my year)...some of the fatigue might have also been due to sluggish thyroid and fibro.

Anyhow my non-scale victory is that for the last 3 days I have remember to take my Iron supplements and other vitamins. I find it so hard to remember because I can't take them with my other medications.

I had a victory over food today! That doesn't seem like a lot, but it's huge when you're starting again. :D

Jogged a bit Wednesday and today. Haven't done that in a very long time. According to my tracker, today was a run-walk event.

I finally JOGGED! It was mixed with intervals of walking (more like walking mixed with jogging!) and only for brief periods, but I DID IT!

Weight loss came to a screeching halt for me this week; however, I am staying positive. I kept on track with my calorie intake and fitness, drank a plentiful amount of water, plus noticed I am smaller through my torso ;-) So, I didn't let it bother me. I know I am developing healthier habits and I feel so good!

So the scale hasn't moved much in the last week, but I have a HUGE victory to report. I started at a size 20, but I knew I was going to be motivated to start exercising/losing weight again so I have kept my nice clothes from my smaller sizes. I normally throw ANYTHING not useful away, but I talked myself into it (especially since a lot of them were Ann Taylor and work clothes aren't cheap).

Anyway, we were getting dressed on Saturday to go to the air show and I was lamenting at how ridiculously large my size 18 jeans were on me. It was chilly out and I really wanted to wear jeans so on a whim I went to the spare closet and found my favorite pairs of Ann Taylor jeans which were a size 16 (for some reason I had forgotten about them).

AND THEY FIT! I may only be down 18 pounds, but I'm back down to a 16 and just expanded my wardrobe significantly. It's taking all my self-control not to run to the Ann Taylor outlets and go nuts, lol.

I also started running this weekend again (well, run/walk intervals, but I haven't done it in a long time). And I did it this morning as well. And you know what? It felt GREAT.

A huge NSV for me is being able to jog after my very fast little 3 yr old daughter! She likes to run off when we're at meetings/church/outside talking to friends...LOL....I have her attached to me for our walks (she's in her stroller, but attached with the monkey harness around my wrist, cuz she crawls out of her stroller). I lost 114 lbs so I can save her life in case of emergency! Or at least have a chance to do so! My 11 yr old and 9 yr old sons enjoy that I can jog now too. Tag, anyone?!

A suit I wore two weeks ago is too big to even try to wear

Second mini goal: weight I was in high school (1996) and my wedding day (2005)
First mini goal met 10/2/14: the march back my happy, healthy weight where I was before and after pregnancy.

The pants I wore in October 2013; I can just about button!

I have come to the realization that the scale is not my friend or foe...It is only the messenger!

God didn't promise days without pain, laughter without sorrow, or sun without rain, but He did promise strength for the day, comfort for the tears, and light for the way. If God brings you to it, He will bring you through it.

I tried a dress on today that I haven't worn in 6 years! it fit! And honestly, although my weight is up from where it was then, my shape has changed due to exercise and the dress looked better on me today than back then!

Someone noticed my weight loss for the first time today (my walking buddy) AND the shorts I bought at the beginning of the summer are too loose! I can pull them down without unbuttoning them and when I put my phone in my pocket today I had a moment of panic that the extra weight was going to pull my pants down. Lol.

Thats great TEMEKA97! Always nice to hear a complement like that

Officially using the last hole in my belt as of this morning (with my shorts now. Was doing it with my jeans a bit ago. More extra fabric in my shorts to get in there)! In looking at it I must have lost about 2" in my waist to get here. emoticon

I bought a pair of jeggings and there was no roll in the front of my thighs. I hated when I would wear fitted jeans but you could still see that roll of fat on the front of my thighs... IT"S GONE :)

Also had dinner at my parent's house tonight. Not a healthy meal (but I did bring a healthy dessert). Just at sensible portions and didn't totally blow my day. :)
