Slowly, but surely, I'm getting there!!!

Friday, September 09, 2011

It's Friday, which means weigh in day! Before I weighed in this morning, I had told myself that I may NOT have lost any weight, as I had been out of town most of the week, only made it to Zumba once and managed to get in one five mile bike ride! I wasn't being negative, just realistic! I did manage to stay within in my caloric range all week, but didn't consume as much fruits and/or vegetables as I typically do! The great news is I did manage to lose 1.8 pounds this week, which puts me at 65.5 pounds loss, since starting my venture to get healthy last fall! (I joined Sparkpeople in February, and have lost 43.8 since February!
I'm getting there, slowly but surely, I'm getting there!!

Never too old to learn

Tuesday, September 06, 2011

I have always struggled with accepting compliments, especially in the area of my weight-loss progress! Recently, one of my close friends overheard me down playing my success, when complimented. She later informed me that I needed to graciously accept compliments, because when I don't I'm basically telling the one making the compliment, they are an idiot who doesn't know what they are talking about! I had NEVER thought of it this way, but am now making a concentrated effort to graciously accept compliments!
Goes to reinforce the old adage, "We're never too old to learn."

    I'm with you on both counts--never too old to learn and accepting compliments graciously can be hard. I like your colleague's take on it. I'll remember that the next time I am complimented. Thanks for sharing it.

Sad Day

Sunday, September 04, 2011

In just a few hours I will be attending the funeral of my mother-in-law; who has been a big part of my life for the last 32 years. She will be greatly missed by all that knew her, including her mother, her husband, her three kids and their spouses, her six grandchildren, nine great-grandchildren and many, many other relatives and friends.
Her unexpected death serves as a reminder to me, to let those we care about know, as there are no guarantees of a tomorrow!

Down...

Friday, September 02, 2011

Weigh in day... 1.7 punds this week... really only 1.2, due to the gain last week! I must admit to being just a bit frustrated with the slowness of my weight loss, but am still thankful for the progress I'm making.

    Slow and steady wins the race!

We're headed toward lifestyle change, not just a change in numbers--pounds and dress sizes.

You're doing GREAT! emoticon
