Joining a fitness club in February I weighed 204 pounds. I always said I was 5 foot tall and 5 foot wide. Not far from it tho'. Changes to be had.

Today april 7th I weigh 197 pounds and am 5 foot 2 inches

goal weight 160
start weight 204
May 20th 193 with a Personal goal of 190 for my birthday, 29th May
Well I did it even with all my diet splurges this W/E
190LBS on the head.
May 30th 188.5 Really doesn't pay to have dessert twice in a weekend!! Gained 2 LBS Joined two challenges for June ---
#1 is to loose 10LBS in the month ---- didn't do so good, only down 8 pounds
#2 is to loose to 160 by July end
Next personal challenge is to loose from now to 180LBS and get a DQ strawberry sundie --- hit 180.5 LBS on July 2nd.
Wish I had held that weight but am back up to 184.
Will have to kick up my exercise some and cut back on the calories some. Too many carbs and I know right where they sit -- right on my hips.
Well so-ooo long to 180LBS. I am up to 187LBS since I broke my 2 ribs. Had to slack back at the gym and take it easy on my program.
Aug. 5th I am back to routine. We burried Cliff's mom and have visited with all the folk down there. Moncton didn't have any more sites for us so we came home last night/morning. Got weighed today and was pleasantly supprised. Left here 187LBS and got back 186.5LBS. Guess I was better than I thought. Some of the portion size and what I can and can't eat must have made it into my mind. Great ! !
Sept 4th 184.5LBS
saw Dr. Monchesky and he D/C my Glyburide and O.J. in my gym water.

My Goals:
1st goal to reach 200LBS

2nd is to reach 180LBS & reward myself with a small DQ strawberry sundie. Reached goal on July 2nd and then two days later am fighting with a gain of 3.5LBS again. Frustrating!!

Broke two ribs and have to easy do it ! ! ! for 6 weeks. Painful little things they are.

Weight has been holding at 185.5LBS even with the gym. Will have to ''kick it up a notch''

Aug 30th and I am down to 182.5. I got a trainer and he set me up a routine. We meet again on Tuesday. Hope for some faster progress in loosing the weight.
Last goal ( 150 LBS ) and to wear the slinky black dress I got in Moncton for New Year''s 2007.

My Program:
following the SP food count for 1200-1500 cals. and follow my diabetic diet as well. Not doing well with the 1500 calorie thing. Go figure, Cliff can''t eat all his calories and I would gladly eat his leftovers and mine.

If I stay doing the exercise I am doing, going to the gym 5x a week and trying to stick to a 2000 cal. diet I seem to be loosing 2 LBS a month. Enough that I am off my diabetic meds and don''t see the Dr. for a year. Horray for me!!!!

Personal Information:
I am a m/w/f from Whitby, Ont. Canada. Debbie is what my family calls me but friends call me Moemo.. Moe'' cookies, mo'' candy. A name my nephew gave me when he was at that rug rat age.

Other Information:
The "man of dreams" asked me to share his world two plus years ago. We have so - oo many of the same interrests, likes and values. It''s neet tho'', we can be feet apart,do our own thing, but enjoy one anothers company.

    Costal Condritis -- is an inflamation of the costal cartilages that hold the ribs on to the spine. It becomes inflamed because of repitious or heavy work. Advil, rest and gental movement are about all one can do to heal it. It is always there just waiting to flair up.

    Happens when I do too much or too heavy a lift. Learning to not flair it up but am human and mess up some times. Last time I had just gotten my trainer, therefore a new program, gone shopping at Walmart and the grocery store and did my regular workout at the gym. Too much exercise all in one day! Was so sore the next day that I couldn't lift my arms to even brush my teeth. Forget brushing my hair.

    good news today,

    all this exercising, watching what I eat and portions is paying off. My diabetic med, Glyburide, was discontinued by Dr. Monchesky. Also I should not need the o.j. in my water at the gym.

    my weight could be down more to suit me but the nurse and Dr. was happy with my loss from 204 to 184.5 ( works out to about 2LBS a month, when I was dieting).

    went to the gym in pain today. Did my cardio workout by starting with 15 minutes on the eliptical trainer and following up with about 12 low impact exercises from SP. Felt much better leaving the gym excupt that the US's storms have hit here with rain and winds. Not bad tho'. Will pray for those of you in the states that the storms there don't harm you.
