10,000 minutes, everyone Ė way to go! Iím dipping my toe in with posts here until April 1, I think. Then, Iíll start the serious journal. 10,000 minutes is inspiring
Heather, youíre a prof, too? What do you teach? (I teach English.)
Dgramie, sorry you had such a frustrating weigh-in. Iíve had many of those after hard work out weeks. Do you measure, too? Sometimes, I find measuring more rewarding and real than weighing.
Annie, I hope the job is going well. Itís always scary being the newbie.
Cyn, wtg with the challenge! Everyone wins! Even your pocket book Ė fast food is Expensive in more ways than one.
Jaime, itís great that youíre checking in. Iím returning after a long time away and the slow regain of 65 pounds. No use regretting. Thereís no yesterday. No day but today.
Catherine, Iím glad youíre on the mend. Wish you could get out more, though. Take care of yourself.
Julia, cycling sounds wonderful. Iím still way shy about biking, but my husband would love for me to go with him. He has a couple of great beach cruisers. Maybe this summer.
LitChick, do what you can, and if it doesnít work, try again next time. There are few opportunities that are once in a lifetime, and if you have any worries about how long it will take, remember that one day youíll be 50, no matter what you do. Youíll just be 50 with an MLS or 50 without. A year, two years, ten. The time it takes doesnít matter so much in the long run.
Brenda, wtg on your award and your renewed energy
Seegore, good for you not worrying about the scale. Have you tried measuring? Muscle weighs more than fat, so you could be trimming down with all the gym days, but not seeing the scale reflect it right now.
Iíve lost 7 pounds since seeing the surgeon 6 weeks ago. 4 of those this week, I think. (Iíve been fuzzy with the dates and numbers, lately.) I see him again on the 30th. Gosh, I hope I can show a 10 pound loss or more. I first asked about surgery a year ago, and I feel like Iím just Now getting anywhere with Kaiser and my own personal mind-blocks.
