Update on my weight lost

As female or at least I know I do we pay too much attention to the scales.  But sometimes when the scales don't move like we think they should we become frustrated and give-up.  I know I am bad about it.  This week I think I've done good but the scales doesn't reflect it.
I have found an app on my Nook tablet called Loseit.  I can keep a record of what I eat and my exercising.  And on the days that I exercise I seem to eat less, because I either burn more that I eat or don't miss it by much.
For Valentine's Day I told Scott not too buy me any candy and he didn't.  I told him what I really wanted was to start going to the gym here in town.  It's an all women's gym and I love it.  I got 7 days free to see if I would like it.  And I did so this past Monday I joined.  I hope to get to the point where I can go 6 days a week,  this week I made to 4.  The gym has helped me feel so good about me.  I can't remember the last time I felt this good about myself.
I started out doing 5 minutes on a stationary bike, then twice around the exercise circuit, and finish with 10 minutes on the treadmill.  I am now up to 10 minutes on the bike, twice around the circuit and 45 minutes on the treadmill.  In distance I made a mile and 3/4 this morning.  I looked up a 5K walk and told Scott that's only 3.1 miles.  I'm halfway there.  So that's something else I would like to do in the near future. 
I will get weighed and measured again at the gym on the 12th.  So I'm excited to see how much difference there isI know I have dropped one size so far.   But if I did look at the scale I have lost 21 pounds so far.  My goal when I started was to lose 20 by the time I go back to the Doctor this month.  Whether I come off the blood pressure medicine this month or 6 months from now.  I'm not stopping until I reach my goal weight.

  11. I love that I just came across your blog. I just wrote a post about how I've struggled with physical appearance, and how I've really had to change my perspective as a Christian and focus on Him instead of myself, and not make getting into shape an idol in my life.

    Congratulations on your weight loss. What an accomplishment that is! You go, girl!
