Another new record
Thursday, November 24, 2016      3 comments

Well, it's taken me seven months but I've finally reduced to below my April 27 weight, the lowest I've weighed on this journey. I've not been this weight in over 10 years. Sometimes I'm astounded by just how many changes I've made compared to... Read more
Something different
Thursday, November 17, 2016      3 comments

Since I started this weight loss journey, in April of 2014, I've been following a program introduced to me at Curves in 2012. You eat 1200 calories for 7 days, followed by 1500 calories for 21 days until goal. It's worked for 20 pounds, but th... Read more
Weigh in Wednesday
Wednesday, November 16, 2016      4 comments

I am not looking forward to weighing in tonight. I did indulge when out for dinner on Saturday with too much wine, and probably not the best menu choice, (though at least I didn't eat it all). We still had a late night on Saturday, and too lit... Read more
My second four-in-a-row
Thursday, November 10, 2016      1 comments

I had my fourth loss last night, not nearly as much as I had hoped for after 3 Zumba classes and a week of 1200 calorie days. However, a loss is a loss and I will happily accept that! Last night our leader passed out duo-tang booklets chock f... Read more
Not at goal yet, but on the right track
Thursday, November 03, 2016      1 comments

I have not done as well in 2016 as I had hoped to. The year started fine, was seeing new low numbers in my weight book in April but then something happened. I stopped going to the gym. I got lazy with keeping my journal up to date, and weighi... Read more

Oh I was cocky last week. Four losses in a role made me feel invincible! Last Saturday was the holiday decorating day, and I was baking up a storm again. Only this time, I enjoyed a bit too much holiday cheer, (read rum and eggnog), which the... Read more
4 losses in a row!
Thursday, December 10, 2015      5 comments

I am hitting my stride this time and am very proud of it. As of last night, I am now 20 pounds lighter than my last weigh in of 2014. One more pound and I'm 20 pounds lighter than my starting weight at TOPS last April. Five more pounds and I'... Read more
170's again, a month later
Thursday, December 03, 2015      3 comments

So last month I made it to the 170's. Yay for me! One week later I was up more than three pounds. Not good for me but I decided the error had been caused because though I was recording my food in my journal, I wasn't measuring everything anym... Read more
My Vision Statement
Friday, November 06, 2015      3 comments

We've been working through the Mind over Body series from here at our TOPS group and last week we read about Vision Statements. Our ladies were asked to go home and think about theirs, then share at our next meeting. I'm going to post mine her... Read more
Finally moved to the 170's
Thursday, November 05, 2015      5 comments

I haven't weighed 170-anything since probably 2003 or 2004. This was quite a milestone for me last night at TOPS. I have been more dedicated to keep my journal, making smart choices on the weekends, and getting to the gym. I've created a sche... Read more
The 80/20 rule
Thursday, September 17, 2015      1 comments

I just saw a two pound gain last night at TOPS. I know why, it's because I sometimes get the 80/20 rule backwards, mostly on the weekend. During the week, I pack good lunches and always say no to the offer of fast food purchased by the office ... Read more
I have tried new things this month and it was awesome!
Wednesday, August 26, 2015      1 comments

My goal for August was to try to hit as many new classes at the gym as I could to learn new ways to exercise. I've done very well in achieving that goal. I managed to try four of the seven classes not previously done and they have now added an... Read more
Tried 3 new classes now
Friday, August 14, 2015      0 comments

I've done Group Centergy: (pilates and yoga), Group Ride: (stationary bike and I'm not sure of the difference between that class and a Spin class), and Group Kick: (kick boxing). I was told I could have 20 or 30 minutes of training on free weig... Read more
Trying new things
Friday, August 07, 2015      0 comments

My motto for August is Try New Things. I've printed a calendar and noted all uncommitted time that I could be going to the gym and all the classes offered at those times or in those evenings. I am highlighting each new class I try and hope tha... Read more
Six month goals
Monday, July 20, 2015      1 comments

I worked on my six month goals for TOPS this weekend, to turn in tomorrow. My new goal is to reduce by 24 lbs before the last weigh in of the year. Then I'll be 13 lbs away from my goal weight. It's a do-able number, if I can just keep the co... Read more
