Showing off my curves
Sunday, December 06, 2009      3 comments

I had the tv on today, just for background noise as I was scuttering about my house doing stuff. I don't even know what channel I was on, but it was talking about fashion. (I've always been fashion challenged, lol) The "expert" was encouraging w... Read more
Having one of those days...

I don't know what's wrong with me today... actually the past few days. I was so excited to get down to 173 lbs. The lightest I have been in 12 years. I went shopping and was comfortably in a size 16 jeans and able to squeeze into 14's. XL tops w... Read more

Not really a whole lot to blog about today. Everything is going pretty good. Been working out faithfully, but not really motivated to increase the intensity. Not just yet. I am feeling kind of worn down and sluggish at the gym. Hopefully a month... Read more

First I have to post my December Goal Jeans pic. They are a size 14 from Old Navy. I can't believe I can actually squeeze into a 14!!!! You can see there is a bit of a mu... Read more
December 1st monthly weigh in
Tuesday, December 01, 2009      11 comments

I did it!!! I nailed my goal on the nose! 173 exactly. I am so pumped! This is the lightest I have been in 12 years! I have one very vague memory of starving myself down to 174 at one time during the past 12 years, but I usually get stuck at 178... Read more

Tomorrow is December 1st!!! It is my monthly weigh in! On November 1st, I weighed in at 182. I have been working hard all month... been fairly consistent with the nutrition and exercise. May have been a bit low on the calories so I hope I didn't... Read more

Can I just offer some advice to those of you just starting out on your weightloss journey? Take a lot of "before" pictures. Don't be embarrassed like I was. I had my son take this one of me today: ... Read more
Why I am doing this
Saturday, November 28, 2009      6 comments

I just wanted to remind myself today why I am losing weight. The main, number 1 reason is for my health. I went back and re-read some of my first blogs where I blogged about the constant pain I was in. I do not ever want to go back to that place... Read more
My new favorite store
Friday, November 27, 2009      8 comments

Black Friday shopping today was awesome! Disappointed in WalMart and their lack of organization, but I still got what I wanted. For the past 10+ yrs my favortie store has been Lane Bryant. I LOVE their clothes. One of my goals when I first ... Read more
My focus for today
Thursday, November 26, 2009      3 comments

Wow, Thanksgiving was a bit tougher than I expected. I thought my gym opened up at 8 this morning, but it was actually 10. Frustrating, but I was still determined to go and I did. The food was so difficult to pass up! But I did it!!! I made... Read more
In the "busy"ness of it all...

Today was my super duper busy day (every other Tuesday). I have to work long hours at work and then I spend the entire evening running my kids around. I am trying not to beat myself up for not exercising today. I planned for this day. I kne... Read more

We went out of town today and, as planned, I was up early and made it to the gym to fit in a great workout! I actually ran 5, 1 minute intervals while on the treadmill and it felt great! I am excited about starting C25K at the beginning of the y... Read more

I couldn't help but laugh at my 11 yr old son today. Ever since he was old enough to walk he was always running everywhere, especially inside the house. He just can't help himself! He has never outgrown that! Just today I was noticing it big ti... Read more
Not feeling it...

I have been weighing myself on the first of every month. I have only weighed in twice so far (Oct 1st and Nov 1st) and both of those times I really felt great and felt like I nailed it before I weighed in. So I have my next weigh in on Dec 1st, ... Read more
Got bored on the treadmill...
Thursday, November 19, 2009      5 comments

So I have worked my way up to 3.8 mph walking on the treadmill and it was feeling super easy for me today. I felt like if I went any faster I might as well be running. So I decided, what the heck? Let me see if I can run for a minute~ it'll make... Read more
