One pound from my first goal

Tuesday, September 14, 2010

Well, it's been a long, slow, steady journey, but here I am, 3 months later, and I am one lb away from my first goal and I have already dropped a pants size! I have lost 9lbs since June, when I started this, but I have lost 17lbs since about February (and I was not really trying then).
A lot has happened in my life recently.
My daughter graduated high school and just recently went to college.
I am teaching a new class and started back to college to get my teaching license last Saturday.
So it has been a challenge to eat healthy, but having my sister and daughter with me in this helps. Although my sister and I went out for her birthday last night....thought we were doing well and came home, added it up and about fainted. I just sighed, shrugged and kept on going.
Today I have done extra good, keeping my fat intake low.
I exercise regularly and I enjoy it.Today I went to the Y after work and worked on the Nu-Step for 25 minutes..on level 6/7. I am still not where I want to be, but I am better than I was. So that is good. My daughter is losing weight in college too, they do a lot of PT where she is.
So I really wanna thank the Lord Jesus for helping me in this. Without HIS help, I would have given up completely.
Next time I post, I will be under my first goal of 300lbs.....(I am at 300 right now!)

    Congratulations on your weight loss! It's so great that your sister and daughter are in this with you. My daughter and I helped each other and we still bring new recipes home to try, and walk together sometimes. It really helps to have a "buddy" with you. It looks like you really have a busy schedule! Here's to achieving your next goal! emoticon emoticon
