Flabulous to Fabulous

I lost 2 more lbs this week!  Okay, so I know some of you think that's not much and it's not in the grand scheme of things.  However, those little pounds add up.  I know I never stated my weight on here before but it's time if I want to be held accountable.  Shoot, in college I had to be weighed and measured every 2 weeks.  I was in very elite shape.  Their theory was if you're going to teach it, you must live it.  I ate well over 5 meals a day back then.  Biked, swam, ran and walked every single day.  Along w/ taking classes.  Had body fat measured all the time.  I need to find one of my college pics to show you all.  You probably wouldn't recognize that person.  My major:  Health and Fitness Specialist.  Yep.  Kid you not.  That's why it is so, so hard to see the shape I have gotten myself into.  However, I am now determined to dig myself out of it and back into the swing of things.  Doing it the old fashioned way too...diet and exercise. 

I have started walking every morning at 7am w/ a friend of mine.  Poor Rebecca comes over to a tired mom trying to drag herself out the door to walk.  But, with her support, we both do it.  It's great.  Also, sticking to the just drinking milk and water.  Still have yet to give up chocolate.  Shoot, a girl has to live, right?  I have a fitness journel and food journal but this week was totally slack on filling it out.  That will be my focus for next week.  I like the path I'm headed towards.  A path towards health and fitness.  Food diet needs to be tweeked.  Working on that.  Will give more detailed report next week.  I actually would love to be able to lose the weight and get ACE certified.  Do they even have that any more?  LOL.  I used to help teach cardio way back in the day.  I miss it.  A lot.  I still did not get the cardio workouts in I wanted to this week.  I am walking, light weightlifting and stretching every day.  However, the cardio is just not working out yet.  Going to re look at the schedule and work it in somehow some way. 

So, never gave my weight before.  At my highest, it was 204.  I am now at 195.  My plan is to be in the 180's in June.  I have not been there  for years upon years.  My goal would be to lose 50 lbs.  I'm striving to lose 3 or 4 lbs next week but will have to really work at that.  Even just reporting here helps.  Knowing I am accountable.  I told my friend that if I could just get to 194, I'd be excited as I can't remember the scale saying that in years.  And now, I'm just 1 lb. away from that goal!  And, pool is almost ready.  I do laps as well in the summer.  50 laps a day.  I know, it's not a regular size pool, but it's a workout.

  1. Do you want me to hold you accountable and ask you about your weight when I see you on 6/22? Or maybe I'll just tell you that you look great instead :).
