10 months….

October 19th, 2009 by way2fluffy

Finally back to the 192 that was my weight at the beginning of summer.  Feeling not too succesful this year, although 20 pounds lighter is 20 pounds lighter.

I’m not going into the new year with another 20 pounds to lose though…..

3 Months of backsliding…

September 16th, 2009 by way2fluffy

Well, 3 months of backsliding landed me almost where I began.

I’m at 198 now but gained 2 inches to my gut…..not healthy.

Let’s get back to the program and work this.

It would be great to start the new year lighter…………

Summer…

June 30th, 2009 by way2fluffy

Doing the low carb thing for 6 months now.  Really thought when I started this WOE that I would be very close to goal right now.  However, the reality is what it is.  I need to look at the 20 pounds gone and maintained.  I need to continue to lift weights on a regular basis and get more exercise.  I need to limit alcohol as this stalls and prevents my weight loss.

I is important to celebrate success at this time and renew my enthusiasm for this lifestyle change.  In 6 years this is the most weight I’ve lost and KEPT OFF.

My clothes fit so much better….

But I shouldn’t be satisfied with this.  For my health I need to lose at least 30 more pounds, so I can’t back off now.

Work it!

Stalled……..

May 8th, 2009 by way2fluffy

Well, everybody talks about having long stalls so I shouldn’t be surprised.  Also, with no exercise routine (all though I do a fair bit in terms of house/yard work) I don’t expect fast losses.

Still, I have to admit, it is frustrating.

I need to remember this …  how hard it is to lose this weight…. and use it to when I feel the need to slide.

AARRRGGGHHH!

My 51st birthday is two days away.  At least this year, I can say, I’m 20 pounds lighter.’

Here’s to losing it all before 52!

It’s May!

May 4th, 2009 by way2fluffy

Well, honestly I thought I would be done another 20 pounds by this time (10 pounds a month).  Obviously I was off on my calculations.

Waa waa …pity party over.

If I want to lose faster I’m going to have to do more consistent exercise, period.  I’ve ordered some 15 min weight lifting and ab dvds…not going to do much good it I don’t use them however.

I have lost another 1 inch from hips and waist.  So that’s a total of 4 inches off waist and 3 off hips.  This is a healthy great thing…..so stay the course.  No cheats, no carb creep.  I can do this.  I will do this.

Doing well….

20 pounds gone.

Yes I thought I would be able to report a 30 or 40 pound loss at this time< who was I kidding? at  my age??? But 20 pounds is the best I have done in the past….and I’m still sticking with this WOE like glue.  If I want to lose faster then I’m going to have to develop the exercise habit.  In fact, I’m going to HAVE to develop the exercise habit anyway if I want to get to goal and if I want a healthy body……..

I’m proud of how much I’ve accomplished BUT realize I still have a long way to go to lose the remaining 45 pounds AND develop a working plan to keep the loss for life.

Control…….

Spring is coming…..

March 30th, 2009 by way2fluffy

This weight is coming off more slowly than I thought, but at least it coming off.  Went skiing today and I have to say I can tell the difference in my clothes.  I wore heavier pants and shirt than usual and was still able to zip the pants without too much trouble.

But I need to be real.  I’m still 50 pounds over weight, and with losing about 5 pounds a month <–on a good month….it’s going to take at least till summer to see a big difference.

AND IT’S NOT GOING TO HAPPEN WITHOUT EXERCISE.

ok, so you got the eating down pretty well…..it’s noT as difficult as it was in Jan. for sure.  Now you need to get the exercise to habit mode……it’ll be good.  I’ll feel so much better.

Hiking at the lake.

Gettting out and swimming around.

Just all around feeling better….

REALLY GETTING YOUR MONEY’S WORTH FROM THE CLUB!!!!!

It’s time to start taking time for ME…..

Time for some more CONTORL!

Down another pound…

March 26th, 2009 by way2fluffy

WOOT!  2 pounds into to onderland…..slower than I hoped but still losing NOT GAINING….Keep going….

ONDERLAND!!!!!!

March 12th, 2009 by way2fluffy

I was shocked by the scale<——in a good way!!!!!
I thought maybe a pound loss would be something to celebrate. I had a 3 pound ‘whoosh’. I thought I was one of the ‘whooshless’ as I hadn’t had a significant loss of over 1 pound since the first week on induction.
So it took a total of 70 days to reach onderland. But I’M HERE!!!!
I could have never made it without these boards. The information (recipes, advice, experience) and support helped me stick with it when I stalled for weeks. Thanks to all……..
It’s such a relief to be successful over what has seemed like (for me anyway) a long haul. It helps me to stay focused on NO CHEATING, NO ALCOHOL(until I’m no longer obese). For me carbs and alcohol lead to over eating. I can stick with this because I feel better off processed foods. More energy and less cravings.
Still have a lot to lose but I really feel like I will be successful with some more hard work and this life style change.

One month down…..

January 29th, 2009 by way2fluffy

Ok, so I didn’t lose 10 pounds this month BUT I lost 8 and 2″ from my belly fat which is great.  If I can lose 8 pounds a month, by Sept. I can be at goal.

Positive energy is needed.  No CHEATS!!! Stay with it and all that other rah rah crap.  It’s going to take time.
