Not Quite 10

Wednesday, January 31, 2007

I told myself after 10 lbs, I'd enter my first blog. Well, it's been about three weeks and I've lost 8 lbs, that's good enough for me! I'm getting over the feeling hungry and deprived stage and starting to really feel better. I'm still having joint pain in my ankles and knees, so I haven't started any cardio. I'm hoping to start some strength training so that my muscles are ready when the rest of my body is. At 232 I'm really starting to see some progress and believe that I can do this for good this time. I have another wedding to be in next summer, and I don't want to see that size 26 ever again when I get measured. My new mantra... "I will not be the fat bridesmaid... I will not be the fat bridesmaid..." c'mon, say it with me...

    "I will not be the fat bridesmaid"...
    LOL! I love your sense of humor. And I'm so happy that you've lost 8 pounds! It sounds like you're doing everything right, and feeling better is a wonderful sign that everything is falling into place. I like your idea of doing the strength training - I was worried about my knees, too, and I've done leg lifts on my Bowflex to strengthen the muscles around them. I'm not doing so well on the cardio, either. It's been icy cold and snowing here for the past week or so and I couldn't get out and walk. I guess I'm going to have to get out the Tae Bo tapes and start sweating (which I hate, but I hate being fat, too.)

    Did you do the visual motivator thingys? The collage of magazine pictures and stuff? I'm thinking you're way too busy with school and work and driving to have time for that. I was so stressed out the last quarter before graduation, I intentionally didn't do one paper and took a B rather than get an A. It just wasn't worth it for me at that point.
    You're balancing a lot of plates at once - and losing weight - that's awesome!
