I did it

Wednesday, July 30, 2008

I am so very happy and quite surprised. I managed to lose another two pounds this week. I am now down 6 pounds. the weight is coming off slowly but it is coming off. I can't tell you how many times i have tried before with no luck. I am not starving and i have had ice cream a few times and some not so good days, but i track everything and don't go off and eat everything in sight after a slip. I have added strength training which is feeling good. I actually believed that it was impossible to lose weight post menopausal and i am so happy i was wrong about that. I owe it all to my friends at sparkpeople and to all the motivational articles i read. thanks to everyone!!!

    I know it is so hard to keep focused after a slip up but you are doing it. 6 pounds total that is awesome. I have tried food journals before and the next thing ya know I skipping writing something down and it isn't all that acurate.

    Not sure if it is because this on the computer or what but I don't cheat I keep it as honest as I can and I think I am just really concious of what I am going to eat because I know I have to log it. The pounds are not just falling off but I do feel different about the weight loss I don't know if it is the spark friends. They know I am dieting but they are not judgemental. Like sometimes familiy can say "you're gonna eat that, I thought you were on a diet." They don't mean to be critical but I hate that. Hey enough about me congratulations on the SIX whole pounds. You go girl!!
