I'M BACK!!!!!!!

It has been a long time since I've been here at Blog To Lose but I thought this blog might be yet another way to help keep myself accountable.  I've been on and off Weight Watchers a couple of times since I last blogged here and I am back yet again.  This time I am hoping to lose the last 5 pounds and KEEP THEM OFF! I can't tell you how many times I have lost these same 5-7 pounds.  And I am really tired of it.  I am not sure what I plan to do this time around that will be different than all…See More

Knock Me Over...

Posted on November 25, 2008 at 5:38pm 1 Comment

Maintenance is still going well for me. I am still surprised that that is the case though. I have never been this successful in my weight loss attempts before and it has me scratching my head. I can't quite put my finger on what switch was flipped that has made this time, THE TIME. I think the biggest motivation for me right now is how good I feel. I have a lot of energy and body feels more fit than ever before. Which amazes me. I have never been into fitness before. I think I suddenly… Continue

Roni's Exercise Question

Posted on November 19, 2008 at 3:39pm 0 Comments

Roni's question of the day ( really got me thinking. And even though I responded in the comments, I thought I would tackle my thoughts a little more in depth over here.

My relationship with exercise has been a love-hate one for a long time. I have been a dancer since the age of 4 and it used to be that the only exercise I even remotely enjoyed was a dance class. I would do other types of exercise… Continue

Weekend Update

Posted on November 10, 2008 at 7:37pm 0 Comments

Happy Monday, everyone! Well, this weekend was not the greatest food-wise. After Friday's candypalooza, I ate at my favorite deli on Saturday (turkey & brie on a baguette with Kettle chips - yummo). Then Sunday I had a bag of dark chocolate m&m's plus 2 of the pumpkin spice muffins I made (granted they are only 2 points each but I really didn't have any points left to spend on them). Then today I ate lunch out with a friend and again I didn't make exactly the best choices. I had split… Continue

Welcome. This is a wonderful site with great people who are here to support you in every way!! Hope to get to know you better! :~)

Hey Jenny - I am so happy that you found something to think about in what I wrote. That is how I got started again...I found something in what someone else said, digested it and then made it work for me. Losing weight is the hardest thing I have ever done and you and I can do this! Think of all the things that we have accomplished because we stuck to it and committed. Have a great week and lean on us when you need to

Thank you, thank you, thank you Jenny! I so appreciate all that you wrote on my blog and it really helped! Thank you so much again...really. I loved what you wrote. Yes, I too am always on program and it feels nice to know that I am not alone. Thank you for your thoughts and suggestions. I also appreciate more than you know the hugs you sent! I started CORE today and so far so good. It seems that it might be more what I need right now. Food more often. I would almost be done my points by late afternoon which meant a scanty dinner and lots of cheating at night due to STARVATION! LOL. Anyway, I am starting again... I am thankful that you are one of my friends. Thank you and have a great week...:)

Wow, how amazing that you would check in on me! I am just so touched you would do that! Thank you so much. I really and truly appreciate it!
I am doing so well! I am so happy with the CORE program and feel so much freedom with it! I am still journalling even though they say you don't have to. Just in case I don't lose weight in the next few weeks, I want to be able to show my WW leader and see if she has any thoughts. It is so nice not to be hungry all the time. I am making sure that I am eating within the recommended portion sizes (as per flex) and just hope that helps. I just love that there is no pressure to spread my points over a day and end up miserable after dinner because I am out of points and was hungry all day. I just feel scared because it is not as controlled as Flex is. But I am sticking with it. I will give it two weeks because someone told me when they switched programs they didn't lose the first week but lost the second week and from there on. So I will give it time...and a very solid try!
Thanks again for checking in. I am doing very well and just felt on Saturday like I was going no where and that I was trapped. I don't feel that desperation any longer. Your support means so much! Take care...:)

Hey Jenny
Believe me.. I've NEVER been a runner either! AND...I have a lot more weight to lose, so I was afraid that I'd quit after I started as well. The program starts out pretty easy and you slowly work your way up. I found that the first 3-4 weeks were not bad at all! Week 5 is a little intimidating to me....but as you can see...I'm still at it! Much to my very own amazement! I guess I am still in shock that I am actually doing it! Today my week 5 training said to run 8 minutes...walk 5...and I actually pushed myself a little bit and ran a full 10 minutes! I still cringe when I think about running 20 minutes straight though. But the way I look at it is...even if I have to stay at this point for a month or longer, at least I am still running! And they say that interval training really boosts your metabolism and burns more calories! So I guess I'll just see about that! Keep me posted if you start C25k! I'm sure you'd do great! And good luck for maintaining over the holidays!
