Could this be the time I get it right?

Monday, October 13, 2014

I am actually afraid to type this email. I am doing really well right now. I am in Week 4 of an exercise challenge here in Sparkpeople. I have been consistently walking three times a week with my family since August! I had to buy new walking shoes because I wore the old ones out!! Holy moly! I am so scared of jinxing the whole thing, but so proud of how far it has lasted. I have lost 14 pounds since July. I weigh in every week expecting the yoyo and the scale keeps showing a smaller number. I guess I just need to keep faith in myself and keep working my plan. Good luck to everyone else out there too!!

    You are not jinxing anything. You are being consistent and focused. And, a little weight at a time leads to more over a longer period. But, you have momentum. You like what you are seeing, so you'll keep it up!

So, Keep up the great work!

Keeping fit is great!

I got the Fitbit and I have a lot of good things to say about it. I have had it almost a week. It really makes you think about how much you sit. I think it is making me move more just so I have a happy little face on the silly thing. But if that is what it takes to get there, then I will. I still have not hit my 10k steps in one day. But I was almost there last night. So that is the next goal and then we will work toward a new goal. Good luck and Happy Monday!

    Good for you! I love my Fitbit and usually meet or exceed my goal of 10,000 steps a day. It is a great motivator!

Walking to win

Saturday, August 30, 2014

My husband and I both have a lot of weight to lose. The kids just went to their annual physicals and they were told that they are getting to heavy and need to break the cycle before it becomes a problem. We sat down as a family, made the hiking schedule. Put it in our calendars as an appointment and stuck to it. We are walking 60 minutes three times a week to start. We will add more days after two weeks of sticking to it.


Taking a good hard look....

And not liking what I see. This was taken at a friend's house two weeks ago. Man it really helps me to put my size in perspective and not forget how far I need to go. The mind can trick you and help you remember how you used to look. Then a picture like this comes and blammo no more fantasy world for me. Time to get back on it. Need to look at this everyday.

Being wrong never felt so right!

Monday, May 12, 2014

I posted last time that I had gained all this weight back and I was feeling horrible and all that work was for nothing! Well, as the week went on last week I still felt back physically weighed in again on Thursday because I could not get my rings on my fingers and my shoes were tight. I had gained even more weight. Well I talked it over with my hubby because i was looking at a 16 pound gain over a two week span. That was crazy. I knew I had not been doing all I could to get healthy but to do that much gain in such a short time made no sense. So it was off to the doctor for me. I had a battery of tests done on heart and kidneys and all came back good. I am on a Lasic (water pill) now to get the excess water gain off and then we will see if it comes back. If it does then it is off to the specialist. Right now doctor thinks it was the heat and working out in the heat that made me swell up. Weighed in Saturday and I am down 6 pounds already!
