Results Not Typical

Friday, February 15, 2008

Today, I read a blog post from a SP member who has lost over 100lbs.

She wrote about what kind of motivation it takes to really achieve substantial weight loss. It really resonated with me. I have a long way to go, but I have lost 32 lbs in 5 weeks. (I'd like to lose 70 more by fall.) How have I achieved these atypical results? And even more importantly, how will I keep the downward slide to "onederland"?

Here's how I have done it so far:

- Tracking every calorie and staying within (and often below) my target range.

- Elliptical sessions a minimum of 6 days a week (2-30 minute cardio sessions on weekdays before and after work)

- Each week trying to do a bit more (more intensity or longer cardio sessions, additional weights, take a new class at the gym, etc...)

I never thought I would say it, but I am excited to hop on the scale now! Every Friday morning when I get up... I hop and skip to that scale. (OK... maybe that was an exaggeration... I am usually not up to hopping an skipping at 6:30 in the morning... but you get the picture.)

So, what do you do to be a Results Not Typical kind of person?
