Lost a pound this week, for a total of 17 pounds. This is a milestone -- I'm in the 150s! No more 170s, no more 160s! Yip-de-doo!


How'd everybody else do?

Way to go!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The road to slimness is not an easy one.

Something to ponder--I went to an inservice about stress and weight came up. The psychiatrist who was the speakermentioned this and it is certainly something to think about. We talk about losing pounds, but think of other things you have lost. Usually when you lose something you want to find it, but we never want to find those pounds. She suggested that we talk about gaining slimness or gaining a healthy body since in many aspects of our lives, a gain is a good thing. Any thoughts?

Is TickerFactory.com where the cute progress graphic came from?

I agree. I do weigh myself. But I feel much more satisfaction when I go to the store and by pants a size smaller. Also, I do feel better and have more energy. I am sleeping better at night. That must be from all this exercise.

The good news is that I have lost 2 more pounds!!

Congratulations to everyone else that is doing great with the weight loss and exercising. I am so proud of you all. Keep up the good work.

I have gained muscle tone! Wheeeee! I'm at what I suppose would be my target weight, but now, I'm still there, but with muscle. I pop out of bed every morning (even saturdays!) I'm needing less caffeine, and I'm looking forward to taking the hotel stairs rather than the elevator when I go to Vegas tomorrow. This working out thing is IT!

Since yesterday morning I have logged over 5 miles on my legs. Yesterday, I hiked a road that almost went straight up. It felt so good to get out in the fresh air. The only time I stopped was to round up the dog. He kept wanting to smell and chase after everything!!

I agree, jkath, that exercising gives you more energy. After my workout yesterday morning I had all kinds of energy. I felt great. The other good thing is that I have been sleeping like the dead at night from all this exercising.

I have also started using the universal weight machine at work. I have a very weak right shoulder (rotator cuff injury). So, I have been working to strengthen it. Last year I went through several months of physical therapy, but this winters snow shoveling did a number on my shoulder.

I can relate to the shoulder problems. I had to have bones removed from my right shoulder and the path to recovery was difficult and I doubt it will ever be as good as it was.

all the time. problem is i stopped working out for awhile cause i was so tired. (i'm anemic). i tried taking iron pills but then i end up with 2 black eyes, so i quit taking them. and i hate veggies, so that's no help either. i really should talk to my doctor when i go see him. but i'm getting better gradually.

Middie, I have the whole anemic tendancies too. But, after taking SloFe & hating it, Doc told me to regulate my intake better. No more meds for that now, and eating spinach, potatoes & red meat are keeping me healthy.

I had so much fun eating all kinds of different foods on my vacation, but I did work out at the health club at the hotel. The best part is I woke up this morning & weighed in at 111, same as I was before the million trips to the buffet :)
(it's the working out, I'm convinced!)
