Onederland

Aug 02, 2018

Finally after a few days I got to onederland and stayed there. I have started walking each night. So far we are doing 2 miles a night a few times a week. We are going to work in a day of biking and possibly a day of swimming as well. I am 12 Lbs from my Dr.'s goal weight for me and 22 lbs from my goal for myself. bring on the streamers cause im gona hit this goal. Also just figured out that I am no longer considered obese according to the chart. I am now just overweight.

Darn Sandman

Jul 29, 2018

Evidence that the sandman hinders our weight loss efforts.
This morning I weighed myself before going to bed. (I'm a night owl.) I was finally 199.6 I did it a couple of times just in case the scale was wrong. Than this afternoon as soon as i woke up I weighed myself again. It jumped to 202.4. The sandman poured 3 lbs of sand on me.

While I joke about it i was very sad to see it jumped back up again. Last night i was excited that i was in onederland finally. And now i'm back where i have been for the past week.

Week long kayak trip

Jul 22, 2018

Shortly I am about to go on a week long kayak trip. Similar to the overnight trip we took last week. except this time I am kayaking down the Delaware river gap. threw and between New Jersy, and Pa. They are calling for rain on a few days but we are hoping that it will hold out and we dont get water logged. 

I decided to write my measurements to see if anything changes when I get back. No measurements have changed except the weight. I have been this measurement for a month now. I am hopeing when I get back I will be in Onederland.

Enjoying Life

Jul 13, 2018

     I just realized that it's been awhile since i posted anything. I have been enjoying my summer. My husband and I just went on a kayaking backpacking trip on the susquahanna river to prepare for our vacation for 5 days on the Delaware River Gap. Prior to loseing weight I could not have done what we did. We kayaked downstream to a random island where we pitched a hammock to sleep on and enjoyed the small island.

     The next day we kayaked back upstream. and as my husband put it "It was no joke." The stream was fast moving in most parts. and the way we got to rest was to find a slow moving patch or grab ahold of fallin or overhanging tree branches or rocks. it was so much fun and we saw so much wildlife.

     The hardest part about this trip and our future trip, other than the workout, was trying to come up with meals that would meet our dietary needs but not require a refridgerator.

I fit!!!

Jun 16, 2018

While visiting family we decided to go to the movies. Afterwards I convinced hubby to go to the beach and take a moonlit stroll. Before we did that I got a whimsy that I wantted to try something I havent been able to do for 15yrs. We started walking around the rides and I finally made up my mind I was going to do it. So I bought the tickets and dragged hubby to the first ride. He didnt know what to think. We got on our first ride and they lowered the lap belt and by god it fit. I yelled over the music to hubby "We fit, we finally fit again." So we had fun riding one ride after they other. And then we took a quiet strol on the beach. I was so estatic.

Did it again

Jun 12, 2018

I am a school bus driver, and my schools are now on summer vacation. So my husband and i decided to take a week and visit family on the Eastern shore. It is unseasonaly cool here so we decided to go to the store and buy a pair of jeans. My husband held up a pair of 14's and like the last time i said no way im in a 14. well, I tried them on and they dont fit. However, they almost fit. So I decided to try on a pair of 16's and found a pair of 15's. They both fit. Also my mother in law gave me an outfit that says it's a medium on the tag. and it fit as well.

Why is it that I see the weight come off but yet when i look in the mirror I still see the fat girl? I used to be skinny many many moons ago. So it's not like I haven't seen myself skinny before. I can tell I have lost weight when i look at individual thinfgs. Such as the excess skin on my neck where my double chin used to be. But i dont believe I have lost as much as I have or can fit into the lower sizes until after I try something on..

Mickey is to big now

Jun 03, 2018

The past two weeks has been a dud weather wise. We only had a few days with no rain. So no gardening, no kayaking, no hiking. On one of the days we did go bike riding. It was the first time i rode a bike in many many years. I was so sore for days afterwards. But I shocked my hubby when i rode the whole 5+ miles.

Friday I decided to wear one of my favorite of 3 shorts outfits. I havent been able to wear it for the last couple years as it was to tight. After I put it on i found it was way too big lol. I decided i am going to have to have it altered or turn it into a dress jumper.

This bi-week i havent lost any inches (think i am still messing up on the measurements, like not measuring the exact spot or something) but i have lost 5 lbs. I'll take either loss as long as something is going down lol.

Mother's Day Gift

May 13, 2018

Today is mothers day. I was hesitant to take my measurements today as I haven't noticed much of a change. I didnt want to be disappointed and then not be happy about mothers day. But luckily I decided to do it anyway. I found that not only has my weight gone down a little more but also some of my sizes.

Gardening to lose weight

Apr 22, 2018

Not much has been going on. I started a job with a new company so I have been busy with that. I decided to do every other week measurements for the winter since we were not doing much of anything. 

Today we started working on the yard. I am adding a pond in the corner of my yard and getting the gardens ready for my vegitable's. We worked on the yard for several hours today. We still have a lot left to do but looking forward to it. We could feel that we were burning calories while spruceing up the yard. These pictures are from last year and this year. The one on the left is this year and the one on the right was gardening last year. What a difference a year makes.
