I am in SHOCK!


This morning I stepped on the scale and gasped like I had seen a ghost! I couldn't believe my eyes! The scale read 168.4!! That is down from my plateau since May of 174-171!!! I really, really hope it lasts and I stay in the 160s and below from now on! We will see. I was 169 for a brief moment a couple of weeks ago and I went right back into that little 172 pocket again but fingers crossed!

I have been trying to track what I eat before I eat it so that I can somewhat control how much goes in. I plan and prepare to try to keep my eating in check and it seems to be working.

I haven't been feeling well this week so haven't been doing my workouts. But I enjoy them, so I know once I feel better it will be back to the weights and back to my bar method DVD. Have you ever tried the bar method? Kind of a cross between ballet and yoga. You have to hold these ballet like poses for a long time while flexing your muscles. IT BURNS but feels great too. I have noticed my shape changing because of it, and sweat literally drips off me when I do it, which is rare for me because I don't sweat that much. I also lift heavy weights and I am starting to see some muscles growing there too.

I want to look like her!

I feel so grateful that I have found something that works for me and is easy to fit into my life. The people around me are really supportive now and even my co-workers are starting to get it. They still ask questions and say things like, “Aren’t you hungry all the time?” But now that I have been doing this since January, they all kind of realize that if it was really hard, I wouldn’t have been able to keep it up this long.

Dieting just doesn’t work like that. I don’t know anyone who has tried a diet and was able to maintain it for almost a year. Even 6 months would be impressive. This is my lifestyle now and I have complete confidence that I will see my goal and stay there for the rest of my life. It is slow going now but I WILL arrive there.

  1. Yahoo!!!! Doing the happy dance for you!!!!! Girl, you rock! It's so cool that people are now supporting you. Can you believe I've maintained my 139lbs for a year with intermittent fasting? I know you can, it's awesome. Haven't tried that form of exercise, but it looks so cool! Enjoy your weekend.
