3/30/08 Going down, wanna come with me????

Sunday, March 30, 2008

Check me out, I am on the down side of the hill and going faster and faster. Wanna come too? Jump on board and let's do this!!!!

Down 3 pounds this week after being in calorie range every day and sticking to my fitness plan. I really needed this boost to keep me going. I bought tons of raw veggies and now I eat those at night when I want to eat the house down. I know I'm not hungry and I just want to munch due to the medication and I'm using mind over matter! I know I can do this!

Thanks to all of you who follow my blog and stuck with me when I wanted to just quit and give up, not knowing what was wrong with me. I'm so lucky to have all of you. Keep praying for me, I need all the help I can get!

Thanks for another great week!

    WOOHOO Lynn! Way to go! Congratulations on the weight loss! I am glad you have found "Natures" snack food to help tide you through the rough moments. I am glad that train of yours is getting momentum and moving down hill.

    Hugs, Sonia

    Lynn, I just went back and read your blog from when I was away (the 16th) about getting a dose of reality. You are such an inspiration, I can't tell you how good it is to see you getting excited again and being positive - and with 3 pounds lost to show for all that positive attitude! You know, you said you were going to accept 180 and a realistic goal weight and go down more if you could. That's exactly what I did when I set my goal at 190. I'd love to be 50 pounds less that that, but not only do I think that may be unrealistic, it's just too big an effort to think about. With the more realistic goal, I find its easier to feel like I'm making progress - every pound seems bigger when there are fewer of them left to lose.

    Great quote I heard this morning on the radio. It's easy to look at the mountain you are climbing, get discouraged, and say "Look how far we still have to go to the top!" That's when its important to have friends who will reply "It's still a ways off, but turn around and look how far we've come!"

    As I am reading this I asked hubby for 1 Oreo. SO, that being said, I am still eating it (it is in calorie range), but I think I may have to follow you on the veggie binge. Love you, and you are doing so great! I want to be in the most luxurious seat (second to your's, of course) in that train. WOO WOO! BTW, Luk saw your chain and said "Choo Choo", so I think he will be coming, too. He can be the entertainment, LOL!

    Well done. Congrats Lynn. Didn't realise you were like me and coveted people's prayers :). Roll on being in the 190's. Roll on for me being under 165! So desperate for it you would not believe. But now reading your blog I know what I need to do and I know it WILL happen.

    And so pleased you've finally found a way to accommodate the meds and healthy eating.

    Just sitting here waiting for workmen. Pray they turn up, and pray I can cope if they don't.

    ALL ABOARD! I'm there with U, Lynn! How awesome U found a way to work around the side affects of those meds. That is a true sign how bad U want this. Instead of using it as an excuse, U found a way to work around it & stay healthy @ the same time. U are a true inspiration! WOO WOO! chug a chug a chug a chug a.............. Lots of down hill tracks ahead, full speed ahead! Many hugs, Ruth
