Weigh-In Day

I have actually got on the elliptical twice this week.  Ten minutes each time, increasing my speed the second time.  I have also really watched what I ate this week.  No eating junk food or fast food.  It really paid off because I lost five pounds this week.  So since I went on blood pressure medicine I have lost fifteen pounds.  But to me the most exciting thing that happened this week is my middle number changed.  To a number I haven't seen in a while.  I'm embarrassed at how much I actually weighed when I went to the Doctor.  My immediate family didn't even have no idea.  I asked Megan yesterday and she guessed way low.  But I think she was just trying to be nice.  When I told Makayla last night how much I lost this week she asked me if I could be a certain weight by the summer.  I told her maybe not but possibly close.  I don't want to lose it fast, because my experience has been the slower you lose it the more likely it's not coming back. 
I didn't get this way over night and it's not going to go away overnight.  But it is and will continually to go away.  It has really clicked this time.  I don't want to be on blood pressure medicine or any medicine as for that.  My Mom's side of the family has all lived to be at least 90, some even 100.  So if there's something I can do to live a long healthy life, I want to do it.  I want to be here to see my grand kids grow up, and to be there for the birth of any others that may come along.


  1. I wish you well with your weight loss adventure. I too am trying to lose. I don't want to stay on this medicine either. I've been eating a lot better, but haven't started the exercise part. I think it's time.

    Take care and have a great day.

  2. Wow! Good for you. You're very inspiring. I need to get off my tush, put down my computer and get busy too. Keep going and keep writing. :)

  3. Good job! One step at at time and it makes a huge difference! Keep up the good work.

  4. Congratulations! You must be so proud of yourself! Just goes to show you, with a little determination and God's help, anything is possible! I too am on a weight loss journey. I am on Weight Watchers again. I lost 54 the first time and now I want to lose 20. So far, I'm down 5 lbs. Only 15 more to go. I believe I will get there! Best of luck to you too!

  5. You Go Girl...keep on doing what your doing...just take baby steps n you won't feel overwhelmed! You have the right mind set, so that is a big plus!

  6. I'm so glad to hear that you are sticking with it and continuing to lose--and exercise. I need to do the same thing, and you are becoming an inspiration to me!
