Thanksgiving Has Come and Gone

Well, I had such a wonderful Thanksgiving Holiday.  It was fun to have a house full of family and friends.  I was concious of what I ate and made sure to enjoy without over indulging.  We will see how I did when I go to weigh-in this week.  I fully expect to have gained a little.  I am not going to get upset because it is over and done with.  I am back on schedule and I even went to the gym this morning in order to keep up with my routine.  When I go to the gym tomorrow, I will have made it to the gym everyday this month that I was at work!!!  That was my goal and I intend to meet it.  Now I just have to think of another goal for next month.
Does anyone have any ideas?  I hope you holiday was great.  Until next time, stay strong and eat healthy.

I think I am Finally Getting There

This is going to be short and quick because I've gotta run.

I went to weigh-in this morning and I lost another 5.6 lbs!!!!!  Whooooo Hooooooo!!!!  I think I am finally on my way.  My exercising is finally kicking in and I am liking the results I am getting.  I am going to stick to what I am doing since its working.  You cannot believe how happy I am right now!!!!!  YES!!!!

Ok, gotta go, but until next time, stay strong and eat healthy.

Uno, Dos, Tres...and 5 minutes!!!

Last night was Wednesday Weigh-In.  I was confident going in because I knew I had been exercising and watching what I was eating.  I stepped up the scale and....3 pounds down!!!!!  Yippee!!!  Horay!!!  Amen!!!  Whew!!!!  I was so ecstatic!!!!  That makes a total of 17 pounds gone!!!!
So I did my normal routine of going to the gym this morning and guess what????  I ran for 5 minutes straight!!!!  I wanted to scream and holla, but I kept myself in check and finished my workout.  My co-workers have been commenting on my looks saying that I look good and they can tell I am losing weight.  It means so much to get compliments like that.  I am going to keep on track as best as I can this week and see what goals I can accomplish.
Until next time, stay strong and eat healthy!

What Could I Be Doing Wrong?

I have worked out at the gym faithfully 4-5 times a week for about 6 weeks now. Yet I am still only seeing a 1 lb loss every week???  What gives???? Anyone have any advice?  I have been watching what I eat and the portion sizes and I have added some weight training to the mix as well.  I need to get this weight off and get it off NOW!!!!  UGH!!!!!

Looking For Noah's Ark

Back again after last night's weekly weigh-in.  I am down another pound.  I do not understand why I am only losing a pound a week.  It is very frustrating to say the least.  I would like to lose 2 lbs a week...you know 2 by 2 by 2 instead of 1 by 1 by 1....well, you get it.  I just want to have more of a loss that a measley one pound each time I weigh-in.
I have been going to the gym every morning!!!  I have been watching what I eat and still this happens.  Its discouraging to say the least.  I am going to try to hang in there and do my best.  Wish me luck....Until next time, stay strong ( I need to take my own advice here) and eat healthy!
