Weigh in Day 8/30/13 – No Change

31 Aug

I guess after losing that weight I gained back, I can’t be too surprised by not losing anything this week.  I am also not all that concerned, it was a crazy week at work and I am just glad I didn’t eat my stress which I normally would do.  I kept to working out on my normal schedule and just dealt with it all.   That in itself is a huge win and so I continue on.

More importantly we had a great hike today and with the long weekend I am planning a second hike…likely a repeater but there is something about being able to get out twice in the course of a weekend that always makes me feel good.   We also met the nicest people at the summit, best part about starting early the huge hike lovers are always out and this couple had so many good suggestions!  I was a huge dork putting everything they suggested into my iPhone for our future.  Honestly, they have been doing what we are doing for almost 15 years and I completely decided I want to be where they are in 5 years.  It was just exciting talking to them and learning about all they have done and how they have done it!  Great people to meet as things start to cool off.

I am also starting to realize that I may not meet my goal of losing 90 lbs by my 40th birthday, at least not at the rate I am going.  I know I could do a more drastic approach but the more I think about it, the  more I realize I am ok with progress this far.  It took me 10 years to put this weight on and while I would love to be a size 12 tomorrow, I am actually fine with how I am losing the weight.  Right now the most important part is that this has really started feeling like a lifestyle and not a diet.  I feel like I could live this way…..

Can’t wait to get all the hike details together to share with you all…. it was such a great day!!!!

Happy Hiking!!!

Weigh in day 7/26/13 +.6, 56.8lbs down 33.2 left to go

This small gain is not a surprise to me and I am not overly concerned about it.  With my inability to exercise for almost two weeks and break from counting calories last week, I am surprised it wasn’t more.  I will take this little gift and turn it into a challenge for my weigh in next week.

I do have to say I am pretty excited about my hikes this weekend, neither is very long and there isn’t a ton of elevation gain but they are both brand new hikes with some of my favorite people in the world!  I get Aaron back tomorrow and on Sunday all my favorite Colorado girlfriends!  It will be a perfect weekend!

The other thing I am getting really excited about is I am just 13 lbs away from my wedding weight!!!  Below is one of my favorite pictures from that day….we eloped…in Vegas…no one knew until we got back….And yes I did get a full-fledged wedding dress and made Aaron wear a tux even though we eloped totally in secret.  I mean look how handsome he is in a tux I was not passing up that opportunity!

Weigh in Day 5/17/13 NO CHANGE

18 May

no change…  which I guess means I need to change, right!?!?!?

The one thing I do have to say is that I am definitely getting smaller even if I am not losing weight, maybe I need to finally do some measurements.  I hate measuring but I need to change-up something to stay motivated!  Stay tuned….

That said, todays hike was all over the place, I am trying to figure out how to get it all down but it was good, then bad then good….and finally good.

I will get the details out as soon as I can!

Weigh in Day 4/12/13 -.8, 51lbs down 39 lbs left to go

14 Apr

Another small loss, but a loss none the less!  It was a tough week for a weird reason, I wanted to celebrate reaching this milestone but my typical way of celebrating is to eat which isn’t the way to go this time.  So all I focused on was not going over my calories each day and getting in as much exercise as I could.  I actually just worked towards a maintain, the fact that I still lost something is great!  Plus I am now officially over the -50LB mark!  I feel really good today!

What I did end up doing was going to the Green Russell Friday night with some good friends, I was being good-ish trying to drink a lot of water in between all of my drinks.  We had so much fun and I got to wear clothes I haven’t fit into for years!  The only bad thing was drinking the night before a hike, I have to admit I was a little nervous about how I would perform….
