Fall, beautiful, Fall!

Sunday, September 25, 2011

Yesterday morning I awoke to a brisk 59 degrees and decided to go for an early morning bike ride! The first couple of miles were brrrrrr... but by the time I was on my fourth mile I genuinely appreciated the cooler morning! I ended up clocking 7.07 miles in 40 minutes before heading home! Needless to say, it was wonderful riding the back country road and listening to the early morning sounds! I think I'll do it again today!

    I am still waiting for fall here. It is a beautiful time of year in Central Florida. I can tell that it is getting cooler north of here. The fall bird migration is a great sight and the lovely birds stop for southern hospitality and the abundance of food.

Getting closer...

Friday, September 23, 2011

Today is weigh in day and I'm happy to report that I'm down 2.2 pounds this week! I'm happy with my loss, as I had such a big loss (for me) last week and was a bit concerned that I might not see any changes this week. However, I chose to stay the course and fortunately the scale cooperated!!!!

Happy Fall to all!!! Have a terrific week-end! emoticon

    This morning had this crispness about it, everything smelled fresh and new. I love Fall, it is my favorite time of year. Congratulations on your weight loss--keep up the good work. I have hit a bump in the road; I plan on using the weekend to restart my motivation. Thanks for the inspiration. emoticon

Making the choice....

Tuesday, September 20, 2011

After a week or so of being in a "bad place" in my heart and mind, not related to my weight loss, but personal "stuff", I'm finally ready to put the events/issues in the past and focus on the here and now and the future! I believe, I needed my time to "wallow" , if you will, but that time is over and its time to get back on the wagon and start enjoying the many, many blessings I have! Being happy is a choice... and that's the choice I'm making today!

Have a blessed day!

    Life is hard and sometimes we wonder "why bother, nothing I do really matters".
I'm almost 74, have raised my family, survived my husband, mom and dad passing and am making a home for my dog and me. We have doubts that we've done the best we could, but that's past. New start. This time, be sure you are taking time for yourself. YOU ARE SPECIAL! Thoughts and prayers coming your way!

Weighed in today!

Friday, September 16, 2011

After my weight loss weigh in on Wednesday, I thought about skipping today's weigh in, but opted to stick with my regular schedule! I am down an additional 4 tenths of a pound for a grand total of 6.2 pounds loss this week...
This week-end is going to be busy, but I'm prepared to stay on track with my food diary and exercise...
Enjoy these beautiful last days of summer!!!

No longer OBESE by BMI standards!

Wednesday, September 14, 2011

To say that I've been under a great deal of stress the last several days would be an understatement... but I am surviving... one of the positives that has come out of the last few days of almost complete loss of appetite... food tastes more like sawdust but I am forcing myself to consume at least some calories every day!! I weighed in today, and am down 5.8 pounds since my weigh in on Friday; whicn means I'm no longer considered OBESE on the BMI!!! In fact, I'm four pounds below obese and am now just overweight!!! Total weight loss to date 71.3 pounds- 50 pounds since joining Sparkpeople in February).
