Well, had a pretty good day. I made it to the gym.
I did an hour on my elliptical and burned 708 calories.
Then I did 150 situps, instead of 200...mostly cause I thought I was going to throw up.
There is a stomach bug going around, I hope I haven't caught it.
Hope all is going well with you.
This week I am going to try and 'clean up around the edges'.
I am going to eat only at prepared meals...
no in between snacking.
I will measure everything, no guesstimating.
I will exercise every day.
One clean week...it usually leads to another.
My official weigh in is on March 1rst.
I am hoping to hit 172 for a clear 90 lb loss.
I think I am pretty much there...I just want to make sure all my I's are dotted and t's are crossed.
I am in the low 170's as of a few days ago.
175 at night...even lower in the morning.
That means that I am not only closing in on 90 lbs lost,
but I am also closing in on the overweight as opposed to obese catagory.
In a few more pounds (at 169) I am technically overweight.
Having been obese now for years and years.
It will feel awesome to be able to officially call myself merely chubby, and mean it.
The last time I was in the low 170's was in 1997 or so. When I lost 21 lbs and went from 179 to 156...only to regain it because I got frustrated that it wasn't going fast enough.
I lost 21 pounds in three months.
Ridiculously childish on my part.
And self destructive to boot.
With a few more years under my belt and a whole lot more experience with waiting...
this time is different.
I will get to 156 again....and I will keep going.
Because this doesn't end once I hit my goal of 132...its all about maintaining.
Its about consistency.
It's about the rest of my life.
I am only 35 lbs from a normal bmi....
I remember looking at fat free me in the 170's (she has since hit her goal) and being unable to imagine what it would be like to be in the 170's....
I see melissa from that whole knitting and running (sorry, can't remember the whole she bang...good web site though) and she is so thin...I can't imagine being that thin.
Luckily my weighing 132 lbs doesn't require imagination.
I will get there and so will you.
It is just a matter of time, patience and being consistent....
Nothing too sexy about it...
have a great night all....
Keep on going.
