Missed goal, all good
Tuesday, July 01, 2008      1 comments

My goal was to be 130 by yesterday, but I'm only at 134. I'm not concerned. I feel good. If I stayed at this weight, I think I'd be happy. That being said, I just readjusted my goal to 130 by 7/31. I think it's still going to be hard to hit, in ... Read more

My last blog was about how great I was feeling. And it's a few days later and I still feel great. In some strange way, I all of the sudden feel like a different person even though my progress has occurred over time. A couple of weeks ago I ... Read more

Yesterday I felt great about what I've been accomplishing with SparkPeople and my weight loss. I spent the day with friends mountain biking and hanging out at the pool. Everyone who'd spent any time with me before commented on how great I looked... Read more
One Year, 30 Pounds

It was almost exactly one year ago that this journey began. I was riding my bicycle when some fast, skinny racer-type guys passed me. They didn't say hello--my pet peeve. They stopped a mile or so up the road and I just went past them without sa... Read more

Ok, I'm the lightest I've weighed in probably 20+ years (well maybe I weighed 2 lbs less than now for all of like 2 days in 1997). And my upper body is buff--big triceps, visible chest muscles--I can see muscles in my stomach and I can see my hi... Read more
People are Starting to Notice (Finally!)

One of my frustrations has been that no one at my office has commented on my weight loss. I mean I've lost 25 pounds, like 15 percent of my body weight. Finally one person last week said "you look skinny today." I couldn't help myself and said s... Read more
My Body is a Mystery to Me!

Over the course of the past week (starting a week ago Friday) I've been really struggling to stay on track. I had been doing great for a LONG time, steadily losing weight, when I hit a minor plateau. I got home from a stressful work day Friday a... Read more
I feel the same! (most of the time)

I've now lost some 23 pounds. And my baggy clothes tell me that's a lot of weight. And I can see it in the mirror somewhat too. And maybe my legs rub together a little less when I walk. But in my day-to-day life, I have to say that my body mostl... Read more

Ok, I was feeling SO in control, making great progress in the past couple of weeks. I had a 3-day trip to Washington, DC starting Sunday and I did so well on my first day there despite the usual temptations. I even resisted the amazing looking h... Read more
Daring to Dream

I joined SparkPeople to lose weight so I could improve my athletic performance. It's been so long since I haven't been slightly overweight that I forgot how much better I feel about myself and how I look. I'm starting to fantasize that I co... Read more
