So we begin

Tuesday, August 25, 2009

This is my first blog entry. Obvious. I'm not a big blogger so this will take some getting used to.

Ok on to my journey. I've been tracking my meals each day for the past week and I have to say I've done pretty well. They started off too low all around and it's not like I want to starve myself lol so I added more.

I've returned to Jazzercise which I love and which is a great workout! After doing it for a month now I can keep up without feeling like I'm going to have a stroke lol. I go twice a week to the cardio classes. I plan on adding in the bodysculpting next month.

I've been doing a bit of yoga too.

Truth time though, I'm afraid to get on the scale. Luckily I don't have one. I thought I'd swing by my doctor's office and have her take my weight (she's right on the way to work) but I'm scared. I don't want to be disappointed and then lose any hope I have now.

    Way to go on your first blog...I don't blog every day...and sometimes I don't really have much to say (those who know me well are shaking their heads at that!)...but then there are times where I go on and's whatever works for you!!

    Where are you taking your Jazzercise class?

    You gotta start somewhere! :o) I'm not a good blogger - I usually talk about things no one really cares to read, but I do it anyway - it's kinda fun. WTG getting started and making progress!

    Congrats on starting your blog! I know what you mean about being afraid to step on the scale--I've tended to avoid them in the past and just go by how my clothes fit, since I've had a history of going overboard and starving myself when I weigh in too often. But then I just kept buying bigger clothes, so that didn't work, either! Seems like all these other folks have good ideas, so whatever you choose to do, I wish you COURAGE!!! Remember, even the cowardly lion was braver than he thought he was, especially when it really counted.
    Did you know that writing to you just made me feel a little better (and a little braver), myself? Thanks!! I'm glad you posted!

    Hey skorned don't worry about the scale, you should check out the weight tracker, I just did and it really calmed me from those same fears, too have just started this week and am new to all of this. But if you check that out, it is explained that by measuring your weight and parts of you body you can see those changes and keep the motivation going. I have fallen in love with this site, it has inspirational motivation blogs of quotes that you can check out from time to time to keep it up.
    Don't worry no one is perfect and you have to tell yourself that, we are all our own worst enemies but we are also our own best friends. Keep up the good work.

    Most of us are afraid to get on the scale... especially in the beginning. We all want a big loss when we are doing everything right... but sometimes the scale doesn't cooperate. Your body is going through alot of changes and adjustments and sometimes it takes some time before results start showing. I've read articles that say when you eat too few calories your body goes into starvation mode and starts storing fat to make up for the loss, which makes sense to me. I have heard others say that isn't true. If you gain or don't have as large a loss as you'ld like don't get bummed out... there are other measures besides the scale. Like how do your clothes feel? How is your energy level during the day? How soon do you get winded when exersizing? Do you feel stronger? You already said you can keep up at Jazzersize class without having a stroke, so that is a definite plus! On those down days remember how you felt before you started exersizing and eating healthy and never forget how far you have come. Each tiny steps makes us stronger and gets us closer to our goal. Good luck !

    It's good to keep track of your weight so you can keep calories and exercise under control, and not gain without know it. I personally check mine at the same time everyday so I can get an accurate reading since weight fluates about 2 pounds everyday due to changes in the body.
