Ok. So I officially re-joined WW last Wednesday. And in my first week back of being really strict with my eating - I lost *drumroll please* 3 lbs. YES! I'm so excited. I have my weight-loss confidence back.

How's everyone else doing with their New Years' resolutions, diets, etc.? Huh? I believe in you guys and I want to hear about it. Email me or comment or something. Bye for now!

Daily Log, etc.

  • 19 miles down, 346 to go!!

  • i am also proud of myself b/c tonight at the Y i participated in a class - core conditioning or something like that...i have always wanted to join in a class since i've been working out at gyms but tonight was the first time i actually did it. i was a bit uncoordinated compared to the others there but oh least i did it!

  • i joined back up with WW today. i was excited to find that i weigh right about what i did the last time i officially weighed in there in october. so, while i was not successful at losing any more weight, i was successful at maintaining a weight. and that's a lot better than the way i used to be (i gained 5-10 lbs a year all through college until the day that my former personal trainer pointed that out and i realized if i didn't change that i would weigh at least 300 lbs in 10 years...)

  • anyways, i am really looking forward to shedding the last 10-20 lbs. if i lose 15 more then i will be at the weight i was when i was in state fair band right before my junior year of high school. that's pretty much the skinniest i've ever known myself to be. i hardly look like "me" in the pics from back then. dave asked me the other day if i could even visualize myself skinnier than that. i said "no" - and i think maybe that's part of what has held me back since august... anyways, it's time now to go to the next level!

  • i'm feeling very hungry after my first day of not cheating on the WW plan at all in probably 6 months. but not too hungry. i think i have to get back in the mindset that i had last spring - being a little hungry is a good thing cuz it means i'm probably going to lose weight. YES!

Weight Watchers re-visited

I'm re-joining WW on Wed. I want to lose about 20 more lbs. I want to stop eating junk. I want to feel the way I did last spring when I would watch 2, 3, and 4 lbs melt away each week... I'm joining with a friend from work. We are going to keep each other accountable in the midst of all the pizza, fun-sized candy bars, cookies, donuts, pretzels, and other various snacks that wind up sitting out in the office kitchen!

2007, here I come!!

So I was browsing thru this one girls' blog this evening. I found her site a while back.... I've never actually commented on it or anything. I just think it's cool cuz she often puts on neat Western US pics and Dave & I once dreamt of moving to Wyoming, so...I guess I'm living vicariously thru her. So, anyhow, I did not know that she'd lost 30 lbs last year. Or that she read the whole Bible.

I was also checking out Chris & Jenni's site (they're the ones who had the house fire earlier this year) I decided that I should set a New Years Resolution so that I will stay more on track but do like Jenni said her pastor suggested and state what I'm not going to do and what I will do instead, since the Bible does that.

I want to set a goal of running/walking 365 miles this year. I know I won't be able to run 500 miles like the girl in Wyoming but I will start logging the miles that I run/walk at the gym or outside from now on so that I know what kind of progress I'm making. This goal should ensure that I never can take much time off exercising this year :) And that should lead me to lose more weight...YES!
