A Rainy Day in Oregon
Wednesday, October 21, 2009
Imagine that, raining in Oregon! Haha, after living in Oregon for 19 years, I've grown to like the rain, and it really doesn't rain as often as people think. You hear it rains every day, but even when it does, it doesn't rain ALL day, so you can still get out. But it looks like it's going to be raining on and off all day today, so I can't go for my walk, darn it--I'm really getting addicted to walking.
Last night on Biggest Loser, Danny gained a pound after being home for a week, and he was so surprised and bummed. It shows how much harder it is to lose when you're not on the show and don't have the trainers yelling at you. And this morning, I had gained half a pound. And I don't know why either. I can't seem to lose more than the 57 pounds. My goal when I started Spark was to be down to 174 by the end of October,and I weigh 182 today, so it doesn't look like I'm going to make it. Oh well, I'm not going to beat myself up about it, I've done so much better than I ever thought I would do. So I'm not going back to the old lifestyle. According to the BMI scale, I'm still obese. I need to lose 20 pounds to be "just overweight." And another 20 pounds after that to be healthy.
I'm thinking about joining Curves. A few days ago, there was an offer to join that came up in my Sparkmail. Now I can't find it. I think it might be helpful to go to Curves 3-4 times a week and do my walks followed by Strength Training on the other days.
