Today I weighed in at 241 pounds. My cruise starts tomorrow, and I am hoping that when I return, I won't be to upset with myself. It has been years since I have had an exciting vacation, and I don't want to ruin it by over doing it. My plan is... Read more
Today I'm a Pear
Wednesday, June 10, 2015      1 comments

My waist to hip ratio is 0.78. That makes me a pear. It's something I've worked hard for over the years. Usually I would give up, but something was different this time around. My determination and courage and belief in myself that I could make a... Read more

I have a Fitbit Charge HR, SPAT, and a Polar heart rate monitor. I love them all but I don't want to have them connected to my SP account anymore. Actually the Polar never was. They are all very good for what they do. It's just too confusing whe... Read more

I have a new obsession. It's good and bad. It's good because I have developed a habit that I must get at least 30 minutes of exercise everyday. It's bad because I have a hard time turning it off. NO matter what I do, I always convince myself it ... Read more

I was just in bed thinking about my day. I was actually being horrible to myself with my thoughts. I messed up tonight by eating too much ice cream. Early today somebody shared something with me that left me feeling sad. I guess the ice cream wa... Read more
The mirror made me do it

I had just about talked myself out of going to the gym. As I was passing the mirror in the hallway, I took a peek, and I saw more of my collar bones than before. It was all the motivation I needed to get out of the house. I did my C25K run/walk ... Read more

I'm still holding on. Some days are easier than others, but I manage. At least I am free of school for a couple of weeks. The ed of the semester was really stressing me out. I have decided to take one class over the summer, but it doesn't start ... Read more

I can bend over and tie my shoes now. I can sleep through the night. I have so much energy, and most days I am not bothered by depression.I feel stronger. I like what I see when I look in the mirror. My fat rolls on my back are still there, but ... Read more

It's more blood pressure medication! My consistency has paid off. Also, the scale budged in the right direction this morning. It wasn't a full pound, but it moved, and I'll take it. Last night I was looking in the mirror, and I lik... Read more

During Friday's doctor visit I was told my blood pressure is "beautiful". I don't remember how long ago I was diagnosed with high blood pressure because it's been so long. But it was good to hear that if I continue going the way I'm going that I... Read more

I'm finally over that sluggish bloated feeling. It had me wanting to scream. I couldn't figure out what was causing it. Yesterday after my gym workout, all I could do was lay around. My stomach (or whatever it was) did like me, and I wasn't liki... Read more
I'm not vain...I'm amazed

I cannot walk past a mirror without looking at myself. I try not to do it, but I can't help it. The transformation I see taking place before me is amazing. I've lost one of my faces. I see cute curves beginning to form, and my butt is actually g... Read more

I had to take a fitness test, and I was able to do fifty squats. I could have kept going, but I was stopped at fifty. My upper body is still not as strong as I would like it to be, but it's stronger too. I know as I continue to train that my m... Read more

Another good day. I am feeling a little sore from my workout earlier. My daughter came over and cooked dinner for me. She kept it simple and healthy. I guess she sees all the effort I am putting forth. I'm just thankful for the dinner because al... Read more
