Keep on truckin'

Tuesday, May 05, 2009

So I've lost about 50 Lbs at this point and am happy to see the progress. I've been stuck on 137 for most of the month but the idea of seeing my "big break" is keeping me going. I really want to lose those last 20 Lbs or so by the end of May or beginning of June. For inspiration I've bought myself two adorable bikinis and hung them on the back of my door. Even if I don't see those numbers budge I'm going to keep pounding it at the gym and pushing harder each week. Never in my life have I been able to wear a bikini and I would love to rock one this summer! I think keeping my little accomplishments in sight and not beating myself up over every little slip has really kept me going this year. Speaking of life's little accomplishments, I RAN yesterday! I haven't been able to run in ages. I gave myself a hesitant 5 min goal and voila! lasted 25 minutes longer than expected, 30 mins total. I still did my regular Elliptical set but really got enjoyment out of the fact that I could run. I'll be using the treadmill this week to try to break this blasted plateau! Thank you SO much to those of you who've lent some GREAT advice and inspiration! This site has kept me going more than I can say. emoticon

    Congratulations on the 50 lbs!! That is an amazing accomplishment!!
    Those bikinis are ready for summer & ready for you to wear 'em :)
    And another congratulations on the RUN! Wonderful that you were able to keep going 6 times longer than you expected!!
    I hear ya on the plateau department...I was plateaued at 135 for a little over a month....it was J. Michaels book "making the cut" that popped me over the top. It changed up my routine enough to lose the final 5! I totally recommend it :)
    Keep runnin' darlin'!

    Omg! I'm doing the same thing! Not with bikinis but with 2 cute outfits.. capris.. hehe I'm still shy to show my calves but I'll get there.. they are just one size smaller than I am and when I hit 230 I'll try them on again and if they don't fit I'll try them on at 225... SOMEDAY soon .... WOW.. to be 137 would be so amazing!!!! Girl you should be proud of yourself too.. I think your suggestion to look at my ticker every morning was awesome you are so RIGHT!!!!! I will!!!!! Right now Sparkpeople has really helped me get on track again and I'm feeling SOOOOO much better! God willing I will get in my 30 min of heart pounding exercise today.. I WILL DO IT! If I have to break it up I'll break it up but hopefully I wont have to.. I just got this computer, and I just installed my printer.. then I'll go pay my rent then I'll work out because tonight I'm celebrating Cinco De Mayo with friends at a party and I am NOT going to go overboard on the Margaritas!!!! Thanks so much for visiting my Sparkpage!!!! I appreciate the support and I really hope you have a great Cinco De Mayo and wish you all the best.. emoticon
