This week I had to write a short story on my weightloss. I dreaded doing it and put it off to the last minute. Once I started writing though, it seem to flow effortlessly. Reflecting on the last year was emotional. Remembering the ups and do... Read more

I am 2 pounds away from half way to goal. The weird thing is. It seems like it was just last month that I started, but it has been 9 and a half months! I am starting to think I can really do this!... Read more

I am awesome. If you would have told me I could do this, I wouldn't have believed you. But you believed in me and we did it together. Thank you to my spark friends, my family and my tops chapter friends. I could not have come this far withou... Read more

My husband and I took our kids to Incredible Pizza Co. last night. Standing in line for the bumper cars I suddenly had a horrible, but familiar feeling in my gut. I forgot to look for a weight limit on the ride! I panicked a bit as I began to ... Read more

I posted this on a new friends page in response to the pressure and stress of losing weight. I decided it may also help someone else so I decided to repost. I belong to a weightloss support group called TOPS (taking off pounds sensibly). ... Read more

So in my last blog, I talked about releasing some tension. Still stressing and worrying about what other people think/want. I need to make more time for myself. I will start with just making everyone leave me alone for 15 minutes a day and HO... Read more
Release the tension.

New strategy. RELAX. I've put so much pressure on myself lately to always lose and I HAVE lost every week since I started, but is it too much pressure to never have a bad week? My friends and family are rooting for me and I don't want to let... Read more
More protein and less carbs to break a plateau?
Monday, July 05, 2010      0 comments

I read a tip a couple days ago about breaking a plateau. Less carbs and more protein for a day or two. Today is day two and there was no change this morning, but we will see about tomorrow. I'll go back to my regular diet tomorrow and see if ... Read more

Can't seem to move the scale much with my new fitness routine, but I am commited to doing this, no matter how long it takes. I've come too far now to quit. I'm gonna make it! I'm gonna break through this wall!... Read more

Putting on my clothes and they are feeling too big again. A little incentive to stick with my fitness program, even though I didn't get the results I wanted on the scale. Yay, more shopping for me! Too bad I have been spending the extra $$ in ... Read more
Feeling the burn, losing the inches.
Thursday, July 01, 2010      2 comments

Lost .4 lbs this week, but I cannot be discouraged. I have lost a few inches in my chest and thighs. I can feel it in my jeans when I put them on. Of course I would be happier though to see the scale move some more. I took home the award for t... Read more

Tomorrow is weigh-in day and I am so unsure of how things are going. My scale isn't moving much, but I can see and measure a difference over the last 2 weeks and I have definately taken the first step in strength training and toning. I just ho... Read more
Thanks fitness tracker! Down another size!
Monday, June 28, 2010      3 comments

I have a love/hate relationship with my fitness tracker. I love the results, but hate the work! LOL Dreading every minute of fitness and putting it off until the last thing before bed sometimes, but feeling so great when I pick up my jeans an... Read more

So far I am suprising myself by sticking to my new fitness plan. I started with some small and managable workouts and I consulted a professional. I think that those two things really helped. I am not really looking forward to the task yet, bu... Read more

I purchased the Biggest Loser 30 Day Jump Start workout dvd. It is a series of 10 minute daily workouts for 30 days to get you started. The 10 minutes flew by while I had my mp3 going and it wasn't FUN, but it was certainly tolerable and pretty... Read more
