Thanks everyone!

Hope, I think she's getting use to it. I think when I finally do shave it, it'll probably shock her.

Monday 3/11/13 - 197.4
Monday 3/18/13 - 188.8
Monday 3/25/13 - 184.0

I had two cheat days to finish off the week. I finished off two pounds up. so I'm stating this Monday at 186.0, Tues 183.8, Wed 184.2, Thurs 183.2

1) Lose 3 pounds -2.8
2) 100+ ounces of water per day yes, yes, yes
3) post daily yes, yes, yes
4) take all vitamins daily yes, yes, yes

You can clearly see when I had my first cheat (a week and a half ago) the recently my back to back cheat days. I'm still recovering from it. I'm moving in the right direction and keeping pace to make my goal. I have been following my diet EXCEPT for the occasional PB&J, and yesterday I had muffins.

I have been having a really high stress month....good thing is when im stressed I cant eat. Bad thing is....I cant eat. Food has been repulsing me the last few days, and Im starting to feel it. I added a multivitamin to my routine and have a few protein shakes at work to try and chug down when I have a minute.

$1100 vet bill last night definately didnt help how ive been feeling....

To all of you where itís so cold - stay warm!

Kali - ouch! about the vet bill. Is your pet ok?

Jenn - eat an apple or some carrot sticks now!

Epi - 4-wk average is an interesting way to go. I think for now I need to stick with daily/weekly trends.

Cassie - you must be really busy this week. I just wanted to tell you that your advice to not give into my plateau was just what I needed to hear - it really did strengthen my resolve to fight through it.

1. Calories under 1200 (I've lowered it this week) 987, 1253, 962
2. An hour extra movement a day Y, Y, N
3. No sugar, white flour Y, Y, Y
4. Small bites and put fork down between bites.-Working on it and I'm remembering to do it more often.
Age 61, Height 5'9"

I hope your pet is OK. It's amazing how high pet bills are. I also hope you can de-stress

Poem for today:

my bete noire
my white whale.

Post I'm Back!

Hi everyone! Man, I've been gone awhile. When I found out I got the new job, I stressed over moving, two graduate classes to continue with, and a new job. Lots on my mind, and I lost track of this...

Last week my grad classes finished up, and I am taking the next term off to adjust to my new surroundings. Denver, CO is gorgeous!! I love the job I'm at as well! I have a friend from college living here too, so at least I know someone. Been here a little more than a month now.

Good thing is my college friend is big on working out. I've been getting into a gym routine, working on my cardiovascular by running. Easter Sunday I was invited to go walking with him and some of his friends - an 8 mile walk!! I was very dead by the end of that! lol BUT! I MADE IT! And that's what counts to me.

I just got on a scale today for the first time since I left, and at least I'm down, albeit only 3 pounds. But this trend will continue. I have a more active lifestyle, and I won't give up so easily! Come June I'll be starting Insanity and by fall I hope to be in Capoeria classes. Have a black belt in Shaolin Kenpo and I want to try something new!

Okay, that should be way more than enough! All the best to everyone. I love seeing familiar faces - and new ones too! I am working on the exercise portion - now it's time to keep an eye on my food intake again. Even healthy food can be unhealthy if not in moderation. (As I have noticed as I logged my food today...)

Goals for the last bit of this week is sticking with my running, eating less than 1800 calories, and keeping my spirits high!



Starting weight: 207.8 - November 14, 2012
Current weight: 191.4
2nd Mini Goal: 187.8
1st Mini Goal: 197.8 - December 6, 2012
Goal weight: 135 - November 14, 2013
