Singing...I feel good...nah, nah, nah, I knew that I would now!

Wednesday, March 18, 2009

What a difference, yesterday at this time I felt like crying. Today I feel awesome. Instead of giving into the pity party I wanted to have yesterday I decided to go to the Mall for some shop therapy. I haven't bought anything new since I started losing. Normally the dressing room was depressing and frustrating, but yesterday wow. Clothes were fitting, nice ones and I was lookin so good in them. I couldn't believe it...what fun!

Then when I came home my daughter wanted a fashion show. Well it was so funny because she was even more thrilled than I was. She told me she wanted to take me out and show me off and say to people..."Can you believe that's my Mom". She was so sincere and told me how proud she was of what I've accomplished so far. It really touched my heart and must have inspired me because this morning I got up, jumped on the treadmill and had the most intense, push yourself workout ever. I ran most of 5.15 miles and then got the added boost of tiger woods coming thru my ipod (I use the nikeplus ipod system when I run) telling me what an amazing workout and how awesome I am. Don't tell anyone but I think tiger has a thing for me. lol

Endorphins are flowing and I'm feelin sooooooooooooooo great right now.

You know what I'm proud of me toooooooooo!

Have a great day everyone, and celebrate your victories and if your feelin a bit blue or unmotivated go try on some clothes that you couldn't fit into a few months ago at a nice store. Shop therapy it really works. lol

  That's so great! I put on a sweater today that I haven't worn in about 2 years because it looked so bad on me -- and today it looks nice! I LOVE that feeling, and I'm glad you shared it because it made me remember that. Thank you!

Down another 2. 172 pounds today 17 pounds to goal. I'm doing my happy Dance.
This past month has been hard going, I've been feeling just blah because of winter and can't wait for spring. I'm proud of myself though because I kept on going even though there were a good many days that I didn't want to. Seeing that 2 pounds gone today was a real boost its all worth it.

Last night at work one of the pool pass members came in and she hadn't seen me in a couple of months. She flipped out and went on and on about how great I looked. I proudly told her I was in a size 10 pant and she wouldn't believe me she kept saying your smaller than that. lol I'm not those size 10 pants could be a little looser than they are, but I'll take the compliment anyway. tee hee.

Feels great that people are really taking notice of my weight loss. I can't wait for summer when we have our get togethers at the camp with our extended family. They don't know I've been losing weight so its going to be so much fun to walk in 50 pounds lighter and flip them all out. hahaha

Have a great day everyone....somedays this feels like a drag, but remember then come the days when you see progress and you feel on top of the world and know its sooooooo worth it.

Winter Blahs...How are you coping.

Tuesday, February 24, 2009

In Jan. I was raring to go and made great achievements with my team mates at the new team. This month although we all are still doing well. Alot of us seem to be losing our enthusiasm. I've given it alot of thought and seems to me its the winter blahs. Due to the snow and cold and slippery conditions the treadmill has become a daily thing and now a source of dread...I have to get on and do it. I do it, but I don't enjoy it. Each day seems to be harder to talk myself into it. A good book and the electric blanket sounds so much more appealing.

Keeping our healthy goals insight is so important. What I'd like to know is how are other people dealing with the winter blahs so that they don't lose motivation and sight of their healthy goals.

Any suggestions for putting some more excitement into these days.


I Just Got Into My Husbands Pantz!!!!

Thursday, February 12, 2009

Whooo HOOOOo and no this is not an R rated post. lol

I remember a time when my husbands pants looked so ridiculously small compared to mine that I hated to have to hang them up. That tiny little 30 inch waist.

The other week just for fun I decided to try on his pants, I got them on and zipped up but didn't dare leave them long, I thought the zipper might rip.

Today I tried again, and they fit perfectly whoooooo hoooooo! Of course they are mens jeans so that might not translate to the same size in female jeans. However, just the idea that I can fit into Glenns pants something that seemed impossible for so long has absolutly thrilled me.

This isn't happening over night for me, but its happening little by little and I'm really excited.

I started at 206 and today I'm 177. I also ran 2.21 miles and part of that was at 7.8 mph. Thats a far cry from the coach potato I used to be.

Hang tough every one....we're all gonna get there eventually and we'll have lots of little victories and lessons learned along the way.

    Congratulations! I doubt I'll ever fit into hubby's pants (the man has no butt), but yesterday he said to me, "I love those pants on you." I'll take that.
Keep it up -- awesome job on the running! ~Kara

    Haha, my fiance's pants are the same way. I remember squeezing into a pair a few months ago before packing on a bunch of weight...Someday I want to have them fit perfectly, or loose! He's about a 30-32 too. And of course he eats whatever he wants all the time lol.
