Weigh In...

I can't believe how busy I've been ! I will try harder  to keep you up to date on what's going on with me, because it is way harder to stay on track when I'm not checking in. I got on the scale yesterday morning with huge hopes of maintaining my 4 lb weightloss from last week. I am very happy to report that the scale said 167lbs. That's right, down another 1/2 lb. This is the first time in 16 years that I have stayed in the 160's for longer than a day. Yipee for me!!
I know some of you are checking up on me, and are happy for me, and would like to into shape, but ... you haven't started yet. I know how hard it is, I've known how hard it is for the past 18yrs but, it is worth it!! Does it get easier? Somedays, but most days, .. no. So don't wait around until a time you think it will be easier, it might not come. I'm hoping to lose all my weight within a two to two and a half year period,  to many of you that may seem like a long time. Heck, to me that seems like a long time, until I look behind me and see that time flies so quickly. It's almost summer, then the hollidays, and then the new year. Is there going to be a new you? Or just more of you to love?? smiles.  If  you think it's easier for me than for you, I don't think that's true. When the alarm went off at 4:40 this morning I struggled, I wanted to go back to sleep, but I didn't. Everyday, all day long, those decisions have to be made. Do I eat this? Do I skip exercise? Am I going to be Happy or Crappy today? At the end of the day you're only accountable to yourself an the Man upstairs. You probably have no idea how nice you can be to yourself when you start reaching your goals, and yes, I'm even talking to those that have low self esteem like me. OK, done preaching for now, just want other people to start feeling better about themselves.... it's nice. Smiles
As a report , I still have not cheated on my diet, not once. I did not exercise all weekend due to a migraine(first one in months, benefits of being healthier, used to get two or three a month), this one was delinately hormonal. Yesterday morning I was back up for my hour walk, and I did a 20 min Jullian workout last night. My steps for yesterday were 15,754, wearing my pedometer has been a good reminder to get up and moving. I want to lose 2lbs this week, don't know if I can, but I'm going to try.


  1. Good job on sticking to it! I've been waiting for an update. How are you liking your new pedometer?

  2. I've been waiting for an update too. This one did not disappoint.

  3. Woohoo for losing weight and getting healthy!!!

  4. I think I went the wrong direction last week.. need to hang out with you more. Ugh.
    2 lbs this week is a great idea.
