tiny victories
ok, it's time for the bragging. but about the LITTLE things. every mini-success you have counts! it means something in the end.

let's encourage each other and share!

here's a few of mine
1. waking up a 1/2 hour early to workout in the morning. i hadn't done that before.

2. i forgot to eat breakfast and had to eat something at school, from the vending machines (!!!). i got: a nutri grain bar, and mandarin oranges.

3. last time i had pizza, i had ONE slice!!!

Last week while traveling to and from Atlanta, I did not have to struggle with the seatbelts at all, just picked them up and made them click. First time in at least 4 years that this has happened.

1-last time i had pizza, i too had just one slice, which was awfully good for me.

2-have been under a lot of stress recently and have not used it as an excuse to eat more.

thanks for the topic!

all the best,

1. At my Scott's (my fiance's) birthday last night, I had just a little slice of chocolate cake, and when everyone went for seconds, I declined. :)

2. I have increased my workout time from 30 minutes to 60+ minutes (it took me a month to gradually get up there), and I feel great

3. I can wear this pair of levi's that I bought when I had only lost 10 lbs (they were my inspiration pants that I had tacked to my wall lol - size 36 waist)

Raelynn--I know all about the inspiration pants tacked to the wall. Mine are a pair of size 10 Tommys, bought them on sale this winter. They're on a hanger, I used red ribbons threaded through the belt loops and tied to the hanger to make them more attractive "wall art". I hung them in the hallway so I see them multiple times everyday. Someday I will wear them.

Yesterday my husband brought home Taco Bell which I love and usually prompts a pig out fest. I had 1 bean burrito and was done.

Been using my measuring cups faithfully on my days off to control my eating.

Getting my half hour+ movement a day! WOOOHOOOOOO!

Eating less (counting calories - writing everything down -measuring) moving more. Still not as much of either as I need to, but most days have been better than they were for a while.

Little steps ~ one day at a time.

small victories!
-I can see my cheekbones again :)

-I'm starting to lose my double chin-can't wait to see my jawline again

-bought pants in a smaller size, and a shirt in XL-first thing I bought in ages that wasn't a plus size :) : )

-I've been exercising consistently-I've never done that before in my life!

saying " no" to ice cream lastnight

Like you, Suzie, what I've bought recently has NOT been a plus size. Can't just pick up and wear everything yet but that will come. And I have a closet (well, almost) full of clothes to look forward to trying on for spring. I've had more fun wearing clothes I had not been able to get into for a long time than looking for new ones. I was at this weight a long time on the way UP and only kept things I really liked so they're all things I'm happy to get into again. Am wearing today a pair of size 18 slacks I bought a couple of months ago (and they were still a mite snug then) and they are getting loose. Yay!

+I got rid of 4 bags of clothes yesterday

+I am having no problem sucking down 3 liters of water

+I weighed myself last night & it looks like I am down 2 pounds.

I made m&m cookies with my daughter yesterday. I ate 3 cookies for a total of 6 points. I counted them and still stayed on plan for the day.

btw, they were really good and worth it!

I just exercised for the first time in over a month (besides cleaning and painting :)). Did yoga - I have an excellent DVD - Yoga for Weightloss. What's nice about it is that you can pick out of four levels of exercise. Since it's a DVD, you don't have to ff or rewind to the level you want.

Stretching is supposed to really help with fibromyalgia, so I have double motivation for getting a regular program.

Anyway, day ONE on my exercise program.
