I have been back on the weight loss journey for about 6 months now. The weight is slowly coming off. The good news is I am over halfway to my goal. I have 16 pounds more to go. Now that might not sound like much but the weight does not seem to want to leave me. At max I lose 2 pounds a month; that's on a good month. So I think I might not finish the journey until this time next year. It will make for a great Christmas gift to myself.

I am walking everyday ...

I am walking everyday and running twice a week. I have been trying to do more weight work but not being very consistent. I get weights in at least once a week I should be doing weight 3 times a week.

To date I have lost just over 30 pounds. Sadly no one has notice. A real observant bunch, my friends and family are not. When I reach my goal I will have lost a third of my body weight. I wonder if they will notice then. If it is like the last time they will notice and then tell me I should put on weight.

Oh how easy it is to fall off the wagon when life throws you a curve ball. I was within 5 pounds of my weight loss goal, when my life got turned upside down. The weight game back except for 5 pounds. It was so easy the first go around to lose the weight, this go around not so much. Working hard, much harder then before and the weight is holding on for dear life. This time when I get to my weight goal, I vow to keep it off for good. Notice I said when, not if, I will get it off no matter how long it takes. I will not give up on me.

Well here I am 4 months into my journey and 30 pounds lighter. Quite a milestone if I don't say so myself.
At the start of my spark journey I set a goal of 125. As I got closer to that goal I realized it was not enough to get rid of the spare tire or love handles. So I adjusted the goal to 110. However I don't know if that will be enough to get rid of the belly fat. I will not go lower then 100. The first 25 pounds came off relative easy, the last 5 were slow and a lot of hard work. I have a feeling it might take another 4 months to get the last 15 off. But this has been an amazing journey. Learning to eat right and getting out of my seat and on to my feet. I wish at the beginning I would have taken more measurements especially my thighs. That is where I think the most inches have disappeared to date.
Hind sight is so good.
This a lifestyle change and I am enjoying the journey.

I have lost 17 pounds since joining Spark People.
I am over half way to my weight loss goal. I am learning to eat right and I am exercising regularly.
I try and walk at least 2 miles a day and usually do more. Except lately the weather has been hindering my walking. I try and sneak in walks between the rain showers. I did walk in the YMCA St Patrick day walk this past weekend. I walk at 17.58 mile pace. Which is faster then I normally walk. I normally do a twenty minute mile.

I will soon enter my golden years. I gain 14 pounds
since August 21, 2008, it is time I lose it and more.
I set my goal at 125 pounds, when I get there I might decide to lose more. But I will decide after I reach 125 and maintain it for a while.
I want to be healthy and active when I retire.
I want to be able to hike into my favorite backcountry lakes and do a little fishing.
I want to learn to snow shoe and fly fish.
I want to be able to do.....!

All endeavor calls for the ability
to tramp the last mile,
shape the last plan, endure the last hours toil.
The fight to the finish spirit is the one...
characteristic we must posses
if we are to face the future as finishers.
Thanks for reading my blog,have a bless day.
