Milestone Reached

Saturday, July 30, 2016

Went to doctor on July 28 and weighed in at 242. That is a 50 lb loss for me. I am really happy to have gotten so far , but still have much farther to go. I am getting a little burned out of counting calories. I am in need of a rejuvenation of motivation! I plan to vamp up my diet and exercise starting Monday. Going to try lifting weights twice a week and/or dance one to two days a week in addition to my walking. I am a little nervous about going to the Y to work out. Haven't don't that in 15 years or so. Wishing I had a workout buddy or could afford a trainer to make me more accountable and to make the adventure a little more fun. :( But I guess, just like this walking and dieting journey I have been on so far, it is a trip I will be taking by myself. I learned years ago you cannot count on "exercise buddies". Everyone's journey is personal and not everyone is ready at the same time. So although I am happy about my loss, I am feeling a little overwhelmed about how much farther I still need to go. I am tired and revving up my exercise just sounds exhausting. In need of some motivation here, please. :) Have a great day!

    How about water exercises such as swimming or water aerobics? If you live near a YMCA they offer this. It is a great exercise and easier on the joints. You may meet some new people as well, and encourage each other. Plus it is better for your workout routine to mix things up. Keep it up, you are doing great!
