So, today I'm back down to 200.5 lbs. I'm not really sure how this happened...but it perked me up a bit. I can do this...I just need to KNOW that I can do it.

I went to work and then afterwards I put the skates back on and after 4 days in a row on skates...I can skate by myself (mostly) if I skate very slowly. I still feel like I'm going to fall every other second. I have to keep practicing. When faced with a curb or when it comes to skating uphill...I can't function without help.

Skating is making my back sore with my hunching forward to avoid falling backwards. I guess it shouldn't matter. If I do happen to hit my will hurt no matter where I land. lol. I'll have to get my sister to take some pictures of me skating so my sparkfriends can laugh at me, too. I don't take myself so seriously that I would deny people the chance to make fun of me. Its pretty funny. :)

Its 9:15 PM EST. I'm at 875 calories, I got about 30 minutes of exercise, and I have most of my water intake for the day. I'm feeling pretty good.

Thank you to everyone who's here for me. I appreciate the support. I really can't do this without other people backing me up.

    After being away for an extended weekend, I'm trying my best to catch up. *huff, huff* Sorry that I missed a few of your blog entries. I'm so glad to see that you are doing well. I'd only look at pictures of you skating with admiration because I don't know how. I wouldn't laugh at you at all! Hey, anyone who can stand upright with skates is going to get my applause. LOL

    Thank YOU for your friendship and support. It's great SP friends like you who make this journey worthwhile. *hugs*

    Sooo, I'm back...been lazy for the past week about getting on Sparks (pms, allergies etc.) anyway. And I have to say, first off, Congrats on taking up an old love like skating! I was always horrible at it, but I did love to rollerblade. So, I think it's so great that you're looking at a new way to get your exercise in by using something you love!

    Second, hey! We're all here to cheer you on when you do great and cheer you up when we mess up! You're not letting us down because you didn't get out of the 200's yet. If anything you've taught us to keep it up, no matter what!

    Last...OK, so 875 calories...huh? That's low doll. Anything less than 1,200 calories a day (even if you're 4'11) puts your body into a metabolic coma. Your body hordes and wants to sleep. So, if that's just a one day thing, move on...but if that's what you're aiming for...your body is going to horde whatever you give it until you're at 1,200, and won't burn truly hot (1 to 2 lbs a week) until you're at you minimum calories for your height.

    Anyway, good luck with the skating!!!! :)
