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.

Tiger Woods congratulated me today!!!

Monday, February 09, 2009

and Yes for real! lol

Now mind you he spoke to me thru my ipod and Nike+ fitness system. He said Hi I'm Tiger Woods and I just want to congratulate you. Today you ran your fastest mile on record. Whoooo hoooo. Works for me. lol

Last time I had a running milestone it was Lance Armstrong who whispered sweet nothings in my ear. hahaha.

Seriously though if you haven't heard of Nike+ipod you should check it out because it has got to be the most motivating thing out there.

Have a great day all, I'll tell Tiger you said hi. emoticon

Haaaaallejuhah, Haaaaaallejuhah, halejuhah, halejuhah...Heather's scale finally moved!
Yes it finally moved!

I guess the men in the white coats won't have to make a trip to cart me away after all, at least this week. lol

Whooo hoooo after 5 weeks of doing all the right things, and starting to get very discouraged, my scale finally moved...only a pound, but it moved and it put me into the land of the 170's a strange and mysterious land which seems to have a mysterious password needed to enter.
I still don't know what the password is...but I'm in and thats all that matters.

Plus this morning "TOM" made an appearance so it could be more than a pound.
