How exercise has effected my life in only a week!
Thursday, March 24, 2011      2 comments

It's been just over a week since I've joined a local gym. I've gone every day, except Sat/Sun. I am doing both cardio and strength training. When I do cardio (which is every day) I get in at least 45 mins and every other day I do strength tra... Read more
Joined a gym
Friday, March 11, 2011      0 comments

I belonged to a gym about 10 years ago. I loved going and did really well there. It was not too crowded. It was a bit of a "meat market" to use a phrase from the 80's but I wasn't the type they were interested in so they left me alone and I wa... Read more
My Aha Moment
Thursday, March 10, 2011      0 comments

So I was online yesterday surfing around and looking at different weight loss sites (no I am not going anywhere, but I was just looking around) and I entered in the stats to figure my BMI. The results showed the range of healthy weight and the ... Read more
Feeling Good

So I am a week into my new start to this lifestyle change. I know that if I go into this with the attitude that this is another diet, then I am sure I will fail. The weight will come off for sure, but when I tire of the "diet" it will all go on... Read more
Getting started again...

Another year has gone by and I am still fat. I have reached the point where I am fed up with being fat, lacking energy and motivation to get started with this lifestyle change. I am just starting to find the motivation and am looking forward t... Read more

Well, I am 2 months into my weightloss program and I am happy to report I have been making steady progress. I have lost 14.2 pounds since I started Weight Watchers on January 7th, 2009. I can attribute the loss to tracking and sticking with th... Read more
Slow progress but the ticker's still moving!

Well, the last couple of weeks I have had slow progress. One week I lost 0.2 pounds and the next week I stayed the same. Yesterday I weighed in and lost 1.6 pounds. These are not huge numbers, but hey, they are a loss and it could have been w... Read more

Slow week, but determined to make this work...
Thursday, January 29, 2009      1 comments

Well, I'm done with week 3 and weighed in last night. It didn't go as well as I hoped. I only lost 0.2 pounds this past week so I am a bit discouraged, but I also know that this will happen. Any loss is a loss and not a gain. I am determined... Read more

Successful Week 1
Wednesday, January 14, 2009      1 comments

This week went by really quickly. I am getting used to tracking points, but still track on spark too. I was able to eat quite a lot and be satisfied. The major changes that I found I had to make were adding more fruits and vegetables, drinking... Read more
New Year and a new start...
Sunday, January 11, 2009      0 comments

Well, I've lost weight before, just like everyone else, gained it back, lost it again and gained it back again. It's such a frustrating rollercoaster ride. The last time I lost over 40 pounds it was with spark and I did it over a period of abo... Read more
Challenge Results - Week 1
Friday, March 07, 2008      3 comments

Well, I can't say that the first week of this challenge was a great success. I weighed in at the same weight as when I started. I can give a whole bunch of reasons why, but in the end they are just excuses. I really didn't have my whole heart... Read more

I've been having a continued hard time staying focused on my goals. I really need to work harder to make better choices with food and get my butt off the couch and start exercising. To that end, I joined a Healthy Habits Challenge that ... Read more

Well, after being off track for so long, I knew that I needed to get motivated again. So I am back and ready to tackle this battle once again. When I started this journey last May the weather was nice and I was able to walk outside and ea... Read more
