My weight loss has slowed down
Jan 07, 2008
Just looking at Holiday food has made me slow down. I joined a group at the gym. Today we did physicall assements . I ddi like 19 pushups in one minute about 27 situps i a minuet and I ran a whole mile in 12 minutes. I was not liking the treadmill but I need to kick myself into fifth gear and lose the rest of this weight .

I was 250 and now that I am 179 I look in the mirror and sometimes wonder who that person is. Guys now make eye contact with me.
I can not imagine getting any smaller everyday I have something iI try on that is too big imagine that. My new obession now that I do not eat food is making things neat and clean like my house car etc. I am just hoping that i can stop at my goal of 150 becaue i have lost over seventy pounds in less than five months. I workout everyday . I am hoping not to become anorexic and think that I am too fat . NOw my skin sags and of course the breasts too. I am hoping to have plastic surgery but wonder if I will truly be happy with my self if I am size six wth perky breasts.
This has been an incredible journey
Dec 10, 2007
I do not know where to begin. I am down to 179.6. I am so happy that I am not going to return to my previous weight. I can walk up hills with my stroller without passing out. I have been working my behind off literally at the gym. Some people have noticed a change and given me compliments. You know how women are with compliments we take them but hen we complain that our breasts are droopy. I thank God for Bariatric surgery. Only issue I am having is I seem to either be constipated or eliminating all my waste at once. I try to get in a lot of water and fiber and avoid sugar. I had my blood work done and everything is good but my cholesterol so I am taking Lipitor. My goal is to make it to 170 by the end of the year and then 160 by my birthday on Jan 29.
Bye for now
Today I tried fitness yoga
Nov 08, 2007
I have been trying to cross train my favorite classes a the gym are cardio kickboxing, the cardio dance classeslike hip hop, water aerobics and cycling. I aboslutely hate just walking on the treadmill or having a personal trainer tell me to do more reps. I was feeling confindent and wanted to try fitness yoga. I had the hardest time trying to sit indan style but I made it thru that . I made it thru about 25 minutes and gave up . I do want to work on strenth flexibility and balance but it was very hard. Maybe when I get smaller I will be able to do more activities susch as yoga and pilates. I really need to wokr on my core muscles because I have horrible posture and that is where all my fat is around the middle.
I need new clothes
Nov 07, 2007
Last nite I went to the support groups semi annual clothing exchange and found thre pairs of pants. I got to size tens and a a size fourteen dress pant that actually fit when I got it home. My next goal is to work on fitting in the size tens I got. Someone told me today that they were not trying to offend me but I have a pretty face beacuse now I am slimmer you can see my bone structure . I thought that I was a big girl with a pretty face. I guess i do look better without the chubby cheeks. I am going to break down and buy some sweaters one day because it is starting to get cold.
Oct 19, 2007
I weight myself daily which is a big no no but I got up this morning and I was 198.8 of course without clothes. I am really enjoying eating fresh seafood. Last night I went to Garrisons and their food was delicious even ate some lobster without butter.

Cleaning out my closet
Oct 01, 2007
Today was bittersweet . I absoulutely needed to clean out my closet. I had to get rid of the size 18 , 20 , 22 and even 24 . WOW
I can not believe I had all of those sizes I am down to 14/16 and I was able zip up these jeans I wore seven years ago
. I have paid a lot of money for clothes but now it is time to move on and take them to the the support group for a clothing exchange. I have lost 50 pounds since March I know this because Quick Weight loss called me to come in and weigh. They were hoping to sell me some more weeks on their program I started at 258.5 when I was there is in March and my goal was 230 but now I am 209 on their scale and it is unbelievable.
