09-19-2009, 10:09 AM
As I am going into the 4 th week I decided to get on the scale a day early ( Ususally weigh in on Sunday)and to my amazement I have lost 4 pounds last week that is a total of 11 pounds so far . I have already informed my husband that I want to bring my weight bench in from the garage and find a place I can set my treadmill up. I figured that Going on in 4 weeks I am ready for something more then Cardio I do daily.
I was thinking yesturday that since I decided that I was gonna do something for me and my health I have already noticed some changes.
I am not eating a entire bottle of ROLAIDS for heartburn. I even spice up some of my food ( Helps to get the water down) And No symptoms of heartburn. Thats a accomplishment their in its self.:carrot:
Most of my weight is in my stomach area and I noticed its dont stick out sooo much.:carrot:
Cant Wait to see myself at goal. I havnt been under 200 Since I was like 18. Hope I will look like a nockout.

You're doing so great! I know exactly how you feel with the heartburn, when I was eating really fatty foods and sometimes spicy foods I would get horrible acid reflux. I would wake up in the middle of the night choking on acid, it was so terrifying and would happen almost every night because of my bad eating habits. Now that I'm eating healthier I haven't had it once, and I'm so happy you haven't been suffering as well! KEEP ON GOIN', CHICKIE!! :hug:

My heartburn was caused because I was lactose intolerent- supposedly most adults are. If you stop eating (drinking) cow milk, you will usually stop all heartburn unless there is another reason.
I am happy for your eight loss. It takes a while-- persistance, and not giving up is the important part.

Wonderful, you are doing great! It is so much easier to stay on plan once you start seeing the results. You are going to start seeing more and more of those! Way to go!

You are making excellent progress--congratulations! I would second the suggestion to start taking progress pictures NOW. I don't have any pictures at all that show me at my highest (except for head shots) and I'm really sorry, because I think it would help me to compare. So take those pics! :)

Congratulations Bonnie! Great job. Definitely take pictures and measurements; I didn't and really regret it.

Good for you!

Thanks Everyone The Encouragment goes a long way too. Yeap I plan on taking measurments. I tried the other day with one of the measurment tapes and it is too small. I didnt have enough tape for a true measurment. I will keep trying. But had to recharge my Batteries and Plan on having my daughter take pic of me tomorrow. The ones I took Didn't turn out. She love to take pics she wont mind.
But tomorrow is my sons 20th Birthday so I have to make him a cake . Hard to Believe that he is that old already. I will make it.
My Hubby bought in my weight bench and all today so I can start using it. Now I have to figure out where I am gonna put my treadmill. But I am doing good.

You are doing spectacular! 11 pounds gone already. You are well on your way.
Oh you just reminded me about the heartburn. Oh did I have it. Such a bad and painful memory. I kept a bottle of Maylanta in my night table as well as in my medicine cabinet. Used it all day long. From Day One of my lifestyle change - day one, I no longer needed it. Amazing.
Keep up the great work Bonnie and you will continue to be amazed at all the incredible changes that are coming your way.
Oh and Happy Birthday to your son.

You are doing awesome! :yes: And I love that you told DH to clear the way for your weight bench and treadmill - fantastic!
One thing you might try with the measurement tape. Grab some string or ribbon that doesn't stretch. Put that around your waist and mark where the end hits. Then you can lay that out on your measuring tape, and measure what is left over - just add the measurements together! That should at least get you close to an exact measure.
Keep up the great work!!
