Where has the time gone......

I can hardly believe that its almost March!
I have been working dilegently towards my goals, unfortunatly my weight hasn't seemed to want to move much lately. I know that I am doing things correctly and I take solace in the fact that I know my body is changing and I am getting stronger. And I see growth in me because the old me would have given up by now and said it wasn't worth the hard work. The new me is saying, just stick with it you will see the results you are looking for soon.
The hardest part sometimes, is being in a weight loss group like TOPS, the scale is how things are measured whether you are doing good or not. I am learning to not let the scale define how well I am doing. I am now looking at my healthy eating, my exercise and my water consumption as whether or not I am doing good.
Right now I have been doing Jillian Michael's 30 day shred dvd. Its a hard workout, but I am loving how it is making me feel. Just in 3 days, I feel like I can feel my body changing and gaining muscle. And the first day I thought I was going to die, but each day it has been getting a little easier.
Other news of my life.......
My son is looking to sign up with the Airforce this week. He goes to do his testing this week and then decides if he will sign up. He won't leave for bootcamp until after he graduates high school and actually we are hoping he doesn't leave until September so we can have the summer with him.
And today we have a French exchange student coming to stay with us for 3 weeks. We have hosted MANY Japanese students, but this will be our first French student. He will be shadowing my son at school during the day.

All in all, been a good year so far. I am looking forward to what the rest of the year has to offer.

    I quit my TOPS group after 10 years being with them. It became more of a social club than a weight loss group. Plus, it added stress and not so good eating habits because I would eat crazy the day after TOPS and not eat at all on the day of TOPS. Plus, I had only lost 10 lbs in the 10 years I was with them. Not a good record.

    I love SP though!

    It sounds like you are making a good effort and eventually you will be rewarded.

    Good for you, don' let that darn scale define you, perhaps look to it for some guidance, but not definition!

    Glad you're sticking with it and its good to see you in the next BL challenge! It's been tough going for many of us, but I like you, am determined to make this work!

    Hang in there girl - you're in good company! emoticon

    I love SP, don't you? :)

    Way to go in keeping up the motivation. It is not easy, but it can be done. Hugs!
