I'm down another pound, YAY and I started a lower fat, vegetarian diet. I'm 4 days in to the new eating habit and so far so good.

I fixed up my husband's and my mountain bikes. Took me 4 hours and a lot of sweat and grease but I did it! I'm very proud of myself. This gives me just one more avenue of exercise. Yea!

Wow, CookieBee. That's wonderful to hear how involved your kids are in your--and probably theirs and the family' well-being.

Dana, that's great that you stayed on track during vacation. That is a tricky one to accomplish. emoticon

I've raised 2 incredibly intelligent confident women, who are both married, and I have 2 fantastic grandchildren. As a mother, I couldn't have dreamed up a better set of daughters! My youngest daughter sat me down and signed me onto sparkpeople and helped me design my initial spark page. My eldest daughter has encouraged me every step of the way. I also strongly credit excellent teachers, my husband, the support of my phenomenal parents, and my brothers - but indeed - they are my daughters! emoticon

I lost a total of 6 lbs and 8 1/2" during the month of February. I added more dancing and strength training to my regimen not to mention, for the most part, I was better with how much I was putting into my mouth.

I have lost 3 lbs in the last two weeks. I have been more vigilent about my food intake and intending to nourish my body rather than just fill it. Also, I have been exercising more to Turbo Jam and ChaLEAN Extreme as well as walking and dancing. I guess it all adds up (or down) over time!

I have begun to be honest about clothes as I continue to shrink. Some I want to cling to because they represent happy memories or were the only thing that looked good on me when I was heavier, but I am trying to take a moment to think about those times, the previous me's and to let them go to other people with my blessing and my closure on being heavier in each of those sizes. I am letting go of the pain of being heavier than I wanted to be which I have shouldered since I started gaining weight 8 years ago. It is a gradual and constant process and I am not done, but at least I am successfully on my journey down a long, positive road.

I have been able to say away, far far away from any temptations around me. I am always saying, 'oh no thank you' to just about everything except water.

I love it because even at work where treats and goodies are always strewn about the kitchen and a dozen emails go out a day letting you know there are treats in....I have been soooooo good. I go in, get some water, chit chat and watch other people chow down and it doesn't even phase me.

I love that!!!!!!

I just have to brag real quick. I FINALLY made it through a one hour spin class at the gym. I had attempted spin several times before, but could never finish. I just changed my mind set and I was able to do it. It is amazing to see what can be achieved once you have the right mind set.

Dana, I'm sure you are tired after "moving" the whole lawn! Just mowing it would be enough to wear me out! LOL

Keep up the good work. That trip to the treadmill is so much easier once you've started to see results, isn't it? *LOL*

Gentle hugs,

That is great! I too am getting on our treadmill that we have had for years. Everyday I push myself a little more and it feels so good. I do have one problem though... Since starting to work out I'm not tired. Normally that would be a good thing, but I work nights and get home at 6am. I try to get at least 3 hours of sleep in before my 3year old gets up and I can't fall asleep in the morning. However, I am wide awake at work!! Keep it up!

We bought a new treadmill as our family Christmas present but due to work schedules, I hadn't used it much. Then starting at the end of February, I started getting up early (no more hitting the snooze a couple of times!) and doing the 15 minute weight loss walk program. A couple of weeks ago, I upped the time to 20 minutes. So I have just hit my one month mark of walking every morning! I haven't weighed myself but can see that my waist is coming back!
