weighloss recap

So I have been slacking in posting about my weighloss because I have been so busy (spoke to a real estate agent today more on that later)

Well I have been doing fine, I am still at 144, which after being up last week and all the pie I ate this past weekend I feel that that is a major SUCCESS! Anyway. I do have to say that I have still been walking which is also a plus for me. I have not be completely dead the past few days. Today during nap time I will be using my ea active. I can't wait. Dinner will be super easy tonight, and I have a long list of "to do's" but I can not do them unless my daughter is awake, so nap time today is mommy time! Oh how I need mommy time. I am very happy to be back on schedule! I will be putting myself in high gear the next few weeks to make up for lost time.

By the end of GAG I want to lose these last 4lbs and get down to 140 even! My ultimate goal at 135, I had originally planned for February. It is still very realistic! I am fine with this time frame it will give me plenty of time to get there and plenty of time to stay there too.

I do have to say that this weight loss journey I have been on has been crazy. I never though my whole life I would have to "lose weight" or that I would be at a place with my body that I was unhappy. Well I am starting to get used to my body again, it has been a long time coming. I feel that I am able to do what I used to do and this makes me happy.

I have a little plan, I was reading up on e-readers. I really want one. I feel that it would benefit me. I love to ready but a book now a days is so hard to buy, and $10 per e-book is not a bad price. Seeing how most books are $18-$25. I want to put this as a HUGE push for motivation! For my birthday, I want to weigh 130, and if I meet that goal I will get my e-reader. I am hoping that by the summer the prices will go down a little but it is still fairly do-able. they are about $250. It will also help me get my grove back and start writing again. Plus reading helps me de-stress and stay focused. Something I really need in life nowadays. Till then the option I have is to install an e-reader on my laptop. I will be doing this to see how many books I have I can get rid of if I can find them for free in a digital copy. Also my local library has an e-reader website. I will use whatever resources I can. I have 2 large bookcases full of books that I want to do away with. One its less to move, two its less to clean, three its less to deal with.

This blog was created for me to lose weight, but more importantly it is about me being me. reading and writing was such a huge part of my life. Not having that constant focus has taken its toll on me. I know I have that focus stored somewhere in my brain I just have to pull it back out and recharge it. I want to blog about what I read and how it makes me feel. I want to enjoy the philosophy that is in the written word. Yet I do not want to have to deal with bookcases of books or notebooks of paper. I can do this. I know that there are options out there for me and I feel that I have found it.

  1. sounds like a plan, congrats on holding your ground weight wise.
    It is such an underrated thing, holding ground.
    I see alot of people, if they are not losing they are gaining. The ability to hold the loss is key.
    An electronic reader is a great idea. Sounds like you want to be a writer?
