The Journey Continues..

March 27th, 2009

For those of you who have been following my weight loss journey for the past year, I am happy to say that I’m still moving forward and losing weight. I’ve not jumped on any trendy diet bandwagon, or taken any pills or diet aids such as, atro-phex, but instead, spent a whole lot of time on the elliptical that we bought in the beginning of 2008, and completely changed my lifestyle. I eat healthy, and I am healthy. Last year, I lost 82 pounds and even though it took me a little while to get back into the swing of things after our two month vacation ‘home’, I can say that I’m now working out every day again and working towards getting the rest of this weight off once and for all.

I had started to become a little obsessive with the scales, so I have put them away, and have decided not to weigh for a while. I think I may wait until the end of April and see where I am then.

I’ve started running stairs and that sort of thing, and last week I even ran up a huge dune hill, followed by a steep flight of stairs that took me to the top. It was a great feeling.

I will share my journey here from time to time, but mostly I’ll be putting that on the throughthetulips site.

    Congratulations!!
    I can’t run stairs – so I’m tremendously impressed to hear you say you can do that.
    Way to go – SO proud of you!

    Hey Sammi- I bet you can do it. I have a bad knee and I bet you could! I use to always think there was no way, but I surprised myself when I said- I’m tired of limiting myself by my own self beliefs, so I decided to change that thought process, and I’ll be darn if I didn’t do it :)

    I would like to be able to run more, but I will get there.

    *hugs

    Good job, Lori! :) you lost 82 pounds in just a year?! That’s really great!

    I cannot run anymore because of RA in my knees is so bad. But I can walk fast, lol.

    Yay! for getting and keeping that weight off! *hugs*
