Well, I almost gave my dh a HEART attack when he got home this afternoon. I bought this beautiful chocolate colored bra and panty set when I bought my shoes to go with my new outfits and it was delivered today. I took the stuff out and looked at the panties thinking, "Ain't NO way my big butt is gonna fit in these I don't care what size it says they are." Well, I was wrong, they did fit and I put the set on and walked around in the condo waiting for Jack to get home. He thought he had died and gone to heaven! Much better response than I would have thought he'd have! So that just shows you young ladies that when you get old, Viagra is not necessarily a necessity! Stick to satin and lace! It will work EVERY time!
WEDNESDAY: Today is Wednesday's woes. Get that griping off your chest. Anything and everything is up for grabs!
Morning ladies! I was sleeping and dh came up and woke me up to ask me something so here I am posting EARLY as usual.
I GET A: for points. Boy, I am sure impressed at what exercising has done for me. I was showing dh my "tricks" last night, which for you 20-40 lb losers ain't nothin' but for me is super human, like being able to cross my legs at the knee and stay that way, laying flat on the bed and lifting my leg straight up in the air and keeping it there, standing on tip toes, stuff like that. Jack of course sees the more logical things in his mind, my butt is smaller and softer, my boobs are smaller (though that bothers him probably! ), when I am sitting, the promised land can now be seen. I am really glad I have gotten my mind clicked on to exercise because without it, I know I wouldn't be able to do what I am doing, losing weight or not!
Good morning Ladies....all points for yesterday...got my water,stayed on program and exercisewas great...Faye ,you sure are right about all the different little things that come along with getting fit,and exercise is the very key that makes it possible...not to mention the energy that comes along too....yesterday I walked 3 miles ,strength trained for 15 minutes and then did Denise Austin for 30 minutes...I really had a lot of energy and I pushed myself ....then cleaned house ,hung out 2 loads of clothes ,baked 2 dozen muffins,made supper...then we went to my son's practice..where I got some more walking in...I am determined to have those tight buns in my jeans..oh yeah,I did 3 sets of squats...good for the buns well Ladies,I hope Yall have a SUPER MOTIVATED DAY!!!!......i WILL CHECK IN LATER...i'M OFF TO START THE DAY....HUGS TO ALL.... Joy
All that we are arises with our thoughts.....
Faye--I'm glad life is treating you so well! I haven't got as much weight to loose as you but I to have tricks that I can do that I couldn't before. I guess my gripe is that I remember tricks I could do at 135 that I can't do now at 170. Like wear high heel shoes. I exercised yesterday and I drank my water but I didn't eat to well. I want to stay with the challenge though and woke up this morning feeling really motivated. Can I give in a weekend day to make up for not eating right yesterday?
everyone thanks for posting you are quite inspirational
Mornin' Ladies! I'm running late, so this will be short....
Got all 4 points yesterday, though I tried hard to talk myself out of exercising. Did it anyway....I think I'm addicted to sweat! Once I start sweating, I feel great and don't want to stop. It's just getting out the door and on the treadmill.
Faye, I'm so happy for you and your new underwear ! You've worked so hard and we're all proud of you.........remind me again, when is that 5mile walk you're doing?
Joy--Great job on the exercise! You'll have that tight butt in no time
Wow Faye, I've been away 2 days and look what I've missed. What fun. Must get myself some satin undies. I'll wait till our December deadline and then get a scarlet set.
I've been good - I get 4 points for Tuesday. I GOT ON THE TREADMILL TODAY and did 20 min. on an incline!!! And my back doesn't feel too bad. I think I should get 4 points for today, but I'll wait till later before I start crowing, late night is the danger period.
Julie, how are you doing with the journal?
Everybody seems to be on track. I'll post again later tonight providing we have electricity. There was a fire at the power station yesterday morning, ( hence I have not been able to post). The power has been erratic all day today as well.
DebbieL: YOU GET A: for points! You have 10 days out of 14 for the challenge starting this last Monday so YEP, any 10 will do but try to get as close to 14 as possible if you can!
Julie: YOU GET A: for points! Oct 25th is the Race for the Cure (for me, walk for the cure!)
Joy: YOU GET A: for points!
My sil calls underwear my size "big girl panties" but I am now able to wear "elegant tushie and boobie covers" so I am coming up in the world. Actually, Just My Size has some gorgeous sets that are cheaper and I may invest in some of those too! Got to keep Jack hoppin!
I just finished 3.4 miles !!! That's the farthest I have ever walked. So now I really know I can do the 5K even though I was pooped. I am hoping the area where the race is , is not totally uphill or something. I did walk probably 1.5 miles of the total uphill though and did A-OK! I apologize for thumping my chest about this, but I actually cried coming back knowing what I was accomplishing. All of this, the weight loss, stamina increase, smaller size, different clothing sizes, etc is like finding a friend you have been looking for a long time. I told Jack last night that for me it is not an ego thing, but for myself it is getting healthy and being able to do things I couldn't and for others I just want to be an example to someone who says, "There is NO way I can do this. I can't walk or exercise because I am too fat, I can't stop overeating, I can't control anything in my life. I am just going to die fat." I just want to shout, "look at me, yes you CAN!" If through this thread, and my website, I get just one person turned on to bettering their life, I am totally thrilled.
I am sticky and icky from walking so I am going to hop in the shower.
Good Morning Ladies!!! I got all my points yesterday!! Yeah!! The bike ride was fun, but harder than i thought it would be...but in time it will just be a breeze. i went to bed last night mad at my hubby... woke up tired and not quite my optomistic self. This too shall pass... thats my only gripe tho. I am hoping the weather gets nicer so i can get my kitchen table repainted today...
