Still going strong =)

I haven't been on here lately (I know, i'm always on and off)...
I didn't lose much weight since a month, but I'm glad I didn't gain. I keep working out, but maybe I was eating a little too much to allow me lose weight.
I just read my last entry - I know I was pissed off, but I don't want you to think I let myself go after that! I just don't listen to nutritionnal advices around me anymore, especially when there is no reliable source.
2 days ago, I went to a nutritionnal group meeting. We were supposed to be 4 people, but 2 didn't show (last-minute cancellation). The other woman that was with me didn't seem to have anything in common with me at first: Business woman in her early fifties, with a great shape. But when we talked, that woman told me she lost 110 pounds in one year and a half (and trying to maintain)! She is an inspiration for me, even if I wouldn't do what she does: Training 6 times per week at 6 am. She is very courageous!
Right now, my current goals are simple:
- Losing one pound per week (so I need to control myself and avoid crappy food)
- Exercising 3-4 times per week at the gym. I am currently doing 3 days per week with no problem. I'm trying to do 4 times per week (going an extra time and doing 30 minutes elliptical or doing 2 courses and 2 gym training).
Last week, I started Zumba again. The class started again. I was doing Cardio-Dancing but didn't wnjoy it as much. When I entered the Zumba class and started to dance, I was so happy!
At 3/4 of the course, I started having tears in my eyes. You see, for the first time, I was doing Zumba and didn't have to stop to take my breath or moving less because I wasn't able to. I did the whole course and I was in great shape after! I cried a bit because yes, It was also one of my goals to be strong enough to do an entire 1 hour zumba class without stopping. My trainings has been paying off!
So I keep going and I really have faith that I can succeed this time. =)
