Happy friday to all!!
Happy Anniversary SB

That's how to do it!

When you "don't feel like" working out is the best time to push through and just do it. Your mind wants to work against you, especially early on in a weight loss exercise plan, and if you can just push through, you not only feel better physically, but you know that you had it in you to push through.

I have some really busy days at work and there are lots of days where I battle the urge to just go home and relax. I go to the gym directly from work, and I feel great afterwards. A lazy evening on the sofa is my reward.

Thank you to all for the anniversary wishes.

Again thank you all so very much with the support on my weight loss & exercise. It is your inspiration that keeps me going. Sometimes I get discouraged as with the 20# I have lost no one, who does'nt know I've changed my lifestyle, has even noticed that I have lost anything. I know it's for my health & nothing else, but I am so glad, that I feel you are all on my side with this. : ) Thanks again!

SB, it really does make a difference when you have support. When you go down a size, folks will notice. They will notice it in your face first. In the meantime, just play a game whereby it is just your secret and see how long before anyone says anything. Then when they do say something about how great you look, just pass it off as if it is nothing. Anyone can do it if they want to. Put on a superiority air. "After all, doesn't everyone lose weight whenever they really want to? It really isn't that hard."

They will go home filled with jealousy that you can do it, why can't they. And you are the center of attention here in DC land. We all are rooting for you.

Happy Anniversary! 26 years' is good--my parents have been married 58 years. I've been married 25, but my track record isn't great-we live apart--works better for us.

I started changing when I eat most of my calories in June. I've shrunk 2 sizes--but that wasn't why I changed things up. I recall that 20 lb is one dress size. So I'm guessing I've lost 20-30 lb. I don't own a scale (well, not one I can stand on). I go by which clothes fit.

I was a bit miffed that n/one had noticed...however, I overheard a co-worker describe me as the "slim, tall, blonde--can't remember her name" the other day. I can't remember the last time someone described me as slim and tall (blonde, I get that all the time). I'm the shortest person in my family and extended family---and I'm 5'6"! And, I'm only blonde during the summer months when I'm working outside in the garden. I have to admit, I was really tickled to be described as "tall and slim!!! at my age!!! Are you talking about ME? Tall AND SLIM--whooo-hoo!

Lucky you, enjoy it!! You deserve it!

I got on the elliptical today for 30 minutes. The first 10 minutes not to intense. For the next 20 minutes I cranked the endurance up to 10. It felt good to get a good sweat going.
