Easter Sunday

Sunday, April 04, 2010

I have to think how blessed I am to have my family and be able to celebrate the holiday with them. I have already planned in advance so I can eat with them and enjoy the meal and know I provided acceptable alternatives and not ruin my effort to reach my goal. ( I gave my mom a sweet potato to bake for me instead of eating her wonderful candied sweet potatoes) she is also making a turkey breast with the regular ham selection to save calories/salt.

I weighed in today and I lost 2 pounds last week, I've been working in my yard and using my pressure washer to clean things after winter storage and I am burning a lot of calories outside. I also got my new "inmotion" eliptical trainer and just starting to get used to it (much harder to use than my gazelle) while watching tv.

All in all I am happy with my progress and where I'm at so far.... from 190 to 171 since January 11th my goal of reaching 140 seems possible for me.

I got an invitation in the mail the other day for my 35th class reunion the end of July and I'm glad I started my weight loss journey earlier this year and hope by the end of July I can walk in there proudly ....... smokin hot in a cute little dress..... LOL and say who are all these old people??? LOL

    Sounds like you are well on your way to your target weight there. I too am working away in the garden. We've chopped down a ton of Dogwood and now taking it in turns to take it to the dump (we have a garden waste recycle area there). We've done 2 so far and have about 4 to go. The other weekend we did 5 dump runs with it. There is far too much undergrowth for one garden. Sure burns those calories though, best thing is, you don't even notice that you're exersising!!

    Have a great reunion in July. I bet you'll look fab
