I just thought it would be nice to have a particular place to say YAY ME! - I've accomplished something! It doesn't have to necessarily be just about our weight, it can be anything (graduated, got promoted, learned to ski, read War & Peace, whatever!) And of course -it's not just for "me" me, but for all you guys too!

So, for today, I say....

YAY ME! - I have lost two pounds this past week. I think it's time for a carrot dance! :carrot:

YAY ME! For all the painting, packing, unpacking, cleaning and everything else (probably 50 hours worth) I have done in the last 5 days.


07-10-2006, 01:05 PM
Yay me! I finally got around to making clay sculptures this weekend!! :)

And I lost a pound ... :D

07-10-2006, 02:04 PM
YAY ME!!! I finally painted the fire place and hung pictures!!! and I tried a spinning class last week!!!

YAY ME! After 2 years, yesterday I actually put on a bathing suit and went swimming. It was only around my family, but still a big accomplishment for me. I had an absolute blast.

That's a great accomplishment! I'm happy I'm back to diet motivation mode after 4 months off. Even messing up on vacation was planned and isn't gonna get me down!! Loving it! What I like most is realizing it is a life long process.

YAY ME! I spent 45 minutes on the exercise bike this morning and nearly 20 minutes stretching. And my racing article I wrote last night wasn't hardly edited at all...meaning I guess I did something right! :)

07-10-2006, 04:16 PM
YAY ME! I'm up to running over 2 miles without a break now. Can't wait to get back to my 3 a day. ;)

07-10-2006, 04:36 PM
Yay me! I walked nearly 6 miles yesterday. Not bad for a person that's only 5'1"!! 8 hours of work + 6 hours of Sea World in 98 degree heat, and I'm still standing :D

07-10-2006, 05:03 PM
Yay me for eating good so far!! And for starting over!!

This definitely needs to be a daily thread!!!

07-10-2006, 05:35 PM
YAY ME! Finally being able to eat once every 4 hours as opposed to once every 2 hours!

07-10-2006, 10:23 PM
Yay me. I went swimming with my family and friends yesterday. The place they wanted to go had about 1/2 mile hike with a very steep hill. I made it up and down that hill without a problem. A year ago I would have said to forget it, I couldn't have made it.

07-10-2006, 10:38 PM
Yay Beach Patrol! for the great thread idea!

Yay Me! for choosing to have a pasta salad and lettuce salad at home for dinner instead of restaurant food, and yay me for walking 5 miles today!

07-10-2006, 10:41 PM
Yay me! We flew down to California last week and I had space between the outside of my thighs and the arm rests! :goodvibes

YAY ME! - I didn't eat over my alloted calories yesterday! (I love FitDay.com!!)

07-12-2006, 01:49 PM
Yay me - I'm jet lagged, tired, back at work, but I still got up an hour and a half early to get to the gym this morning - and I haven't had any off plan foods today. (by the way - I'm in UK where it is nearly 6 pm, so this is good going!)

07-12-2006, 02:21 PM
Yay me! I'm not sure what I have to "yay" about today - maybe the fact that I didn't overeat on my pasta lunch? - but I sure feel like I could use a "yay" today!

07-12-2006, 03:50 PM
Yay me! I chose to eat brocolli and 1 ounce of chicken instead of a chicken parmagina hero today !

07-12-2006, 04:52 PM
Yay me! I went on a 6 mile bike ride last night and ate chicken and asparagus for dinner instead of pizza!! Oh!...and I reached my 2lb weight loss goal for the week!! YAY!:carrot:

YAY ME! For saying under calories everyday last week except Saturday!

07-20-2006, 01:51 PM
Yay Me! I reconnected with my diet 4 weeks ago. At first I was losing nothing! I kept going and even made allowances for 2 weeks of vacation. I've lost 3.5lbs! I'm on the go now!

Also Yay Me! I was mature this week. I had company that instead of really including me in the tourist thing in my area when they came to visit me (I'm new to the area too) they paid my dinners and bought me T-shirts but excluded me from the tourist vacations. They were going to let me go today but made like 3-4 excuses why I might not want to go. I get it. I'm JUST the relative. But because the second person is a guest, I acted like a gracious host. Yah Me for being the bigger person. I'd rather go with someone who wants me to be with me. Thanks, but no thanks!

07-20-2006, 02:02 PM
Yay Me! I had my first check-up in years where my doctor didn't tell me I need to lose weight and exercise more! She actually commented on how slow my heartbeat is--all that cardio paying off! :carrot: :cb:
