It's WORKING - and now, I have to make it keep working

Friday, February 08, 2013

I am finally seeing results.....not huge losses on the scale, but a definate loss of some of the pudginess on my belly and a more defined line between my chest and tummy area. SO, that motivates me. I carry ALL of my excess weight around the middle so it is nice to see some action there.

We are still eating very lightly and sticking to super soft foods as hubby recovers from oral surgery and bone grafting in his mouth. It is pretty easy to stick to my calories when he can't eat anything crunchy or hard or even any meat. I am certain he will be back to eating soon, but I am equally certain I am not going to be returning to the huge meals we used to consume. Smaller, lighter and healthier are the order of the day. I see no reason to return to bad habits after three weeks of improvement.

So, I need to figure out the exercise piece. My little one moved to the morning class so I am getting up earlier and earlier. I need to make those first 30 minutes move it time . As we all know, waiting until later in the day is a recipe for disaster. I need to get it done early and then just add extra movement to later to round out the extra time. This next week, I hope to get in 4 days of early morning movement and a whole lot of time with the hand weights to begin toning shoulders and arms. I am GOING to wear sleeveless this summer if it kills me!!!

Love the progress and I love having a place to sound off!!!

    Thanks for the info!!! They told us it would be a 30 minute, no big deal surgery. He spent 90 minutes under laughing gas and can't eat anything but soft foods for 3 weeks!!! So much for being prepared! Good thing I know a whole bunch of soup recipes or we would be in trouble.

    Yeah for Non Scale VIctories (NSV)

    See it works if you give it time and follow a plan.

    My Mom had that same oral surgery as your husband.....make sure that he drink a ton of water as it seems to be hugely dehydrating when you have any kind of bone grafting or dental surgery.

    Have a good one.
