Week 10

Down 23lbs. There is a light at the end but it still seems so far away. I have two more weeks of working out with Mariah. And oh my god, I am so tired! I have politely asked her if we could do some workouts that were not all "balls to the wall." She said "No." .....Great....

I'll say it again. The food part is really easy for me. I have discipline. I can handle another 5 weeks of eating this way. It is just about willpower. But the exercises, man oh man, it is getting harder and harder.

Saturday I have my first 5k. As a non runner, I am pretty nervous and excited about it.

2 more freaking weeks of this - I can do it! Right?

Also, I know how to jump rope now. :)

On Week 9

So, I am on week 9. I have lost 19lbs and counting. Personally, I feel good and think I look good. My trainer may disagree and say I have further to go reach my destination. But no matter, I am still happy with where I am right now. Over six inches lost off my hips alone. 19lbs lost in 8 weeks. I worked out everyday while on vacation, and ate healthy things. I even told the chefs that I had a medical condition whereby butter and oil caused me severe damage, so I needed everything dry. So I am giving myself a virtual pat on my back. Good job me.

I really cannot wait until I am done with the whole process. It has taught me how to eat better, how to exercise better, and be generally more fit. But I want to be a normal person again.

I am doing everything I can to not obsess about my weight, or get all worked up if I don't manage to lose a pound here or there, but sometimes, someONE makes it hard for me to be normal...

I have 4 weeks to reach my goal weight. I know I will reach it. But you know what? It doesn't really matter if I reach it in 4 or 5 weeks. That said, I will lose it in 4 weeks, but I am just saying that no ones life depends on me being the exact goal weight at the exact day and time we arbitrarily set. Mainly, I am just writing this for my own sanity. I am in charge, which I sometimes forget.

See you in Week 10.

Week 8

Down 17 pounds, down a dress size, down some inches. 2/3rds done, and really looking forward to the light at the end of the tunnel. Not going to post any pictures till I'm done, that way it can be all dramatic. I have another 12-13 pounds to go, I can do this...but I will complain all the way till I make it.

Till week 9!

Week 6- Halfway Point

13 lbs down! Yay.

I have to give a shot out to my trainer Mariah MacDonald over at http://www.revelationfit.com/
She puts up with my complaining, and though I dread working on out on her days, because I know its going to be a brutal butt kicking, I certainly love the results the days after. Shopping is fun again and I am starting to have energy throughout the day. I am eager to see the final results in another 6 weeks, but I am enjoying the current results as of now!!
