Trying Yet Again
So The Biggest Loser’s newest season started on Tuesday. I have so thought about signing up to see if I could get on the show, but then I think, hey, I have lost 45lbs already. Then I watch the first night… and 3 of the women on the show weigh LESS than I do!!! Hello??? Guess I should have tried. I have the advantage of knowing how much better I feel getting the weight off and knowing I don’t want it BACK ON!!!
Having had my foot surgery, which I have talked about practically NON-Stop on Twitter, and over at Crayons, I was really worried about gaining weight. I was impressed that I only gained about 3 lbs on vacation this summer. Yesterday afternoon I got on the scale and have actually lost since vacation. Not back down to the -46 (219), but holding at -44 (221) (cuz I had gotten to -41 (225) before vacation, so I have lost all of vacation and almost the rest I put on) but the cool part is, I have not gained since quitting Karate.
I so love this show, because it does motivate me. Granted, right now, I can’t get up and do the stuff like I want to do, but the stitches are supposed to come out on Monday, and then hopefully I can at least start using the Wii Fit again.
I haven’t posted here since we got that either… but Man, that little thing can get a good sweat going. You have to actually get up and do it though. K really frustrates me because she figured out that you can do the running program while sitting in the chair and just moving your hand. Granted, I have the better score because I actually RUN, and don’t just wiggle my hand, but still, she sits there and then it opens new programs. The fit learns with you. The more you do, the more programs and advances you can open. If I could go in and edit all her stuff without deleting her Mii, I would.
Anyway, I found out that my class reunion is in May, they are doing my class and 2 others together, so mine is a year late, my brother a year early and class of 84 right on time. I think it will be cool having 3 classes together, since we went to school together!! I told dh that if I am in Onederland by Christmas, that we are going. (I can’t believe how many people I have to explain Onederland too btw… anyone who’s weight is in the 200’s probably knows EXACTLY what I am talking about!!).
I was able to buy a size 14 this summer and went to a Large in my shirts (that is down from a 20 in pants and XL in shirts since last August) Even if I am not losing pounds at this point, I am losing inches!!!! I just want to feel good. Right now it is so frustrating, because my toe DOESN’T hurt, but yet I can’t do anything. Granted, when I do something like the yard, then it does hurt, but still.
The other cool part is, I got a new phone, so I can do entries from my phone now instead of always having to get to the computer, so hopefully, I will be able to do that more often!!!!
