Wendee: I'll have to admit, just reading your posts makes me 1. exhausted (in a good way) 2. encouraged & 3. accountable to my own exercise regime!!
You seem to have so much energy! But I will tell you, we are similar in weight and I DEFO don't think I look so well in my present weight as you do! U GO GIRL!!!
My hubby also thinks I am an addict of this site--partly b/c I AM. I get out of bed, and I can think of a million excuses to not exercise or I say "y bother?" but then, after reading a few posts, I am so encouraged! I pull myself together and think--if ALOT of other ladies don't "wanna" do this and DO, so can I!!
Fresno: Thanks for starting this thread! It is just plain HARD to loose 20-30 lbs and keep it off when that's all you have to loose! Water really isn't a problem for me. I really only drink 3 things: Water, Diet Coke, and Merlot (and in NO particular order)
I do however struggle some days with not getting my 64 oz a day in. But using MFP (my fitness pal) HELPS!!! If I c I have a couple cups to go b4 bedtime, I usually just gulp them. I take Maca and Alive (multivitamin) and I ALWAYS try to drink 12 oz when taking them!
When I work out, I keep 32 oz with me, b/c I am one of the ones who has to drink drink drink during the workout!
Happy: I feel u on the "tots and fries"! My DH is a junk food fanatic! (His weight shows it, but he really isn't interested in getting control of it and I don't push him). Just this week, I came home after Zumba class to find a Large pizza from Little Caesar's on the eye level shelf of the fridge! I said to him "REALLY!!! Will u please remove that from the eye level shelf"
I am extremely happi this morning. I got a new scale and validated it with my MD's scale yesterday. I've been off phen for 4 weeks and this was my first real weigh-in since. I'm down 2.6 lbs!!!!!!
I re-weighed this a.m. just to be sure that's really what I was from overnight and I am now 157.6
Today is jam packed: Zumba, theatre, and dinner. I'll be on late tonight! Have a FABULOUS Saturday
