Wow - again!

Hot diggety dog! :)

Haven't lost an ounce for two whole weeks now. I sent the scale on an extended vacation this morning. We're not going to see each other again for two more weeks - minimum.

I'm not unhappy, tho.

I lost ANOTHER inch from my grand hips since my last post bringing my total loss for two weeks to 4 inches and total lost from waist for the two weeks is 3 inches.

I am tickled... and sore...

    Well, it seems you still have some great success to be proud of! I'm sure it's just a little extra muscle! And there's nothing wrong with that...Congrats on your inches! That is fabulous! emoticon

This week

Saturday, February 21, 2009

Well, this was my first week doing the Shock Training System. Had thought to 'work up' to it, but decided that was just holding myself back. emoticon

Think it's better to start now doing what I CAN and be able to do MORE later. Having to bench or curl with weights that I laughed at 20 years ago - that's probably WHY I have to use them now - because I unmercifully teased a friend about her great big 8 lb dumbbells when I was doing the same exercise with 40s. I am owning that now........ Funny how your own words come back to bite you on the butt.

Course, I may never work back up to 40's. Looking back, I realize that my disease was in it's hyper phase at the time and I was able to lift and build muscle like a man. My thighs were 28" of steel back then too (yes, they were almost as big as my husband's - scary thought). More like cottage cheese now.

One thing about having my HT under control and in a euthyroid state, I can't get bulky now like back then and that's a good thing. LOL I am happy with my progress these days and do not have unrealistic expectations.

Didn't lose a pound this week.

DID lose 1.5 inches off my hips this week, tho - that's the only measurement I took this week.

    I will give this some thought today. This is a "heavy" one.

1 lb

Sunday, January 18, 2009

Good news - I lost a pound this last week. emoticon

Today I'm recommitting to myself - not making a resolution, but setting goals and forgiving myself for letting things get in my way so bad at the end of 08.

Starting my own boot camp thing. Going to rotate through my work out DVDs.

Even though I've got further dental work tomorrow and later, my plan is to do at least 15 minutes of work per day unless I'm in a real bad way from my teeth.

My goal is to work out 6 days per week to jump start this.
