I haven't been in the 160's for a very long time. Maybe 2 years? wow. Here I am, finally. It's nice to see this ticker inching toward that goal! I've been running every day I'm able (they gym had wacky unposted hours during the holiday week so I showed up after closing almost every time!) Even with the incontinuity I feel good about the effort. I've started Tivo'ing some shows from FitTV to do on days that I can't hit the treadmill. There is one that is all ballet/modern dance derived movements that incorperate some Pilates, I LOVE that one.
The one sad part about this is that my three year old son Dade asked me to read him a bedtime story and I told him I was sorry but couldn't. He said "Yeah, because you go to the gym today." He sounded so sad! I'm going to have to make sure I give him some special time with me during the day to replace the bedtime ritual he's missing.
I had a friend (who wasn't aware I had started this journey) ask me if I had lost weight recently. That felt good! No one has asked me that in awhile.

Just sharing my happy happies! Hope you all had a great holiday. I stayed good and had my favorite chicken on a salad instead of a bun. I think I liked that even better!

You are doing great. I bet it is hard taking that time. But wen you reach goal you can give him some more time. My girls are old enough to tell me to go on a bike ride with them. I can make ten do the ball exercises with me. Nice to have support. It also teaches them good habbits and how to take care of your body.

I can't gt to a gum. So my time is taken from the house while still in it.

Congratulations! You soon won't be able to use your signature...with the reference to Queen's "Fat Bottomed Girls"! (One of my favorites! ) Keep up the great work! You'll have to start a new routine with your little guy! He just misses that story time..... but don't they know how to make a Mommy feel so badly?!!? Hang in there!

Take care!

WTG!! Keep up the great work and I agree it is fun to see that ticker movin' along. Maybe your son would be happy with a story during the daytime since you can't read it to him at bedtime. Kids sure know how to make us Mom's feel bad, but taking care of ourselves makes us better Mom's!!

Thanks! LOL, I'll always be able to use that signature. Even in HS while I was dancing 5 hours a day and I was oh, 135 ish? I had a bubble butt. Junk in the trunk no matter what! I like my curves (as does hubby! heh heh) but a little shrinkage is A-OK with me.

Housewife, I'm with you on getting to the 160's! Finally! In the last few days I've bobbled between 172 and 168, but for 2 days in a row my low has steadily been 168, so I'm finally claiming it! It feels GREAT, doesn't it??

Your son may need a little extra mommy time shuffled into the day. I felt bad when I first started this because I would take off on my bike after my hubby got home from work, or right after dinner, but I noticed that since I started feeling better I was actually spending more time with my kids, even if it was just joking and talking because I was pulling myself out of years long depression and metabolism death.

Hope the rest of your journey goes smoothly!

Kim

This is a great success for you!! I also can't wait to see those 160's. I can't believe I detested them so much on the scale....not I long for them!! Funny how this weight thing works.

I also like your goal of 3 miles in 30 minutes. That's a great goal!! Keep it up, you've got a great thing going.

Congrats! I am so anxious to get to the 160s myself -- it's been about 2 years for me, too. Keep going, you're awesome!
