Day 237 of my VLCD journey!

Wednesday, August 24, 2016

I am feeling good, I am down officially 105 pounds! I have 61 pounds to lose before my next goal of being 200 pounds by Christmas.
I am in a work out rut. I haven't been going to the gym, partially is because of being exhausted from the insomnia my new meds have stowed upon me, the other is I feel I am being more active as it is summer. I am outside more, and I always doing stuff. I know this isn't enough though. I need to get back into it. I actually miss the gym, the great feeling I get after a work out. Knowing that I pushed as hard as I could and that I sweated my booty off. For some reason though going is harder in the summer then I thought it would be. I am tired of making excuses. I am doing the other parts of my journey, the food, the water. and I am more active, but not as active as I was in the beginning. SO that is going to stop, If I don't go in the morning because I am tired I will either go after work, or I will take my dog for a walk or go for a bike ride. I have to stop making excuses. Excuses is what led me to being almost 400 pounds!

Last week my sister and I did a sister getaway for 2 days to Atlanta! We had a blast! And I had a NSV! I didn't need a seat belt extender on the airplane! I was so happy as the last flight I was on I needed one, and I was so embarrassed. We walked all over downtown and I wasn't tired, or out of breathe! I was so proud of myself because a year ago that never would have been possible. It was fun to get away with my sister. We had a lot of laughs and made some great memories.
Well time to get ready for work. I am off to Madison today for a meeting. Hoping to hear some good news today!!
Have a great Wednesday everyone

Keep Pushing!!

    Go Sam...Go Sam!!! You've got this. We all do some of this back and forth...it's that you recognize it that is a win, I think. I traveled so with my old job I bought an extended so I wouldn't have to ask...I'm looking forward to not needed it!

    Awesome! I was so excited last time to not need to ask for the extender. I have felt the same way about the gym lately. I know as summer winds down and it gets dark earlier, I will be back there.
