Day 39:198

Yes.. I'm down 1/2 a pound since yesterday. Which blows my weight lifting theory out of the water. Usually I am up at least a pound today.. and yes, I did do my upper body weight lifting circuit yesterday. Maybe my body is shifting into a different gear. Maybe all that weight lifting is starting to pay off.. and instead of holding on to water.. they are burning fat!! What ever the reason.. I'll take it!!

I will have to keep an eye out this week and see what my body is going to do...hopefully it just keeps going down.. but I wont be shocked if I see a gain in the middle or end of the week. I am doing great... I just need to keep going. OH.. and speaking of doing great, have you noticed the number of days I've been on track? This Friday will make 6 weeks straight!! I am thrilled.

I think the biggest motivations for me are the upcoming holidays. Halloween.. eh, not so much. But Thanksgiving is always held at my Mother In Laws.. and my hubbys entire family (all 8 brothers and sisters, their husbands and wives, and all the cousins) are always their. For the last 4 years I have tried to lose weight and look fantastic.. and for 4 years I failed. I have never done this well on my own...and the fact that I am already 20 lbs lighter then what I was this time last year, makes me feel confident that I can lose at least another 10 lbs by then. I may not be at goal, but damn it, I will be one of the healthiest people there!!

I ran 1.3 miles this morning and then went on to my lower body weight circuit. I am wearing pants today that I have never been able to wear comfortably... and boy are they comfy!!! Food was awesome yesterday.. and today will be the same. Portions are small, but filling.. and no in between snacking.

Thanks to everyone who gave me songs yesterday. I had some great tunes to listen to this morning!! Some of my favs??....

Christina Aguilera = Candyman and Fighter
Back Eyed Peas = Pump It
Rihanna = Pon de Replay

Have a great day!!!

YEA!!! You are down to 198 that is wonderful. You have been running for awhile and staying on track - keep up the good work. Hey - a 2 mile walk/run is how you build up to eventually running 2 miles, you have to start somewhere. Lots of hugs for all of the hard work!!!!

did you realize that you are solidly in the 1xx's and still dropping? Look at you go!
That whole strength training and a gain got thrown out the window for me this morning as well! i'm not going to complain about a loss ever though!
