Still going strong!

I've lost another 1.2 pounds so I'm up to 36.2 pounds!  My eating is not as balanced as it should be, but it's working for now and it's something I can live with.

I've decided I'm going to break my weight loss into 50 pound increments...I'll soon be 'starting over' with my weight loss!  I might try different approaches with each 50 pounds!

I started using the elliptical machine the other day and my knee didn't hurt!  PTL  It burns more calories, but it's harder too!  So I only did 5 minutes, tomorrow I want to do 10 minutes on it.  I also did 25 minutes on the treadmill the other day.  Tomorrow I hope to do 10 and 20 with weight lifting!  :)

I bought some new pants to workout in...I hope they fit!  I also was able to wear a skirt that's been too tight for me!  :)

Another pound!

I haven't updated for a while because of our trip our trip last weekend and it usually takes me a week to get back in the groove!  I weighed this morning and have lost another pound so I'm happy about that!  I need to get busy and start losing a little faster though.  I think my summer travels are over with so I can get back into the swing of things and start exercising regularly.

Mike joined Snap Fitness with me so we are going to go there...hopefully together, but if not we will go separately.  With my schedule I think afternoon/evening workouts are what I'm going to have to do so having someone to go with me will be a bonus!

I'm going to get a fitness assessment this week at the workout place where I go just to get a starting point. I've been here and done this before so I know what to do, but it's kind of motivating to see where you are and have goals.  I set up my online account and they have recommended exercises that I will be doing, but I'd still like to hear what the fitness trainer has to say too!  I suppose she's never met anyone as overweight as I am with as much knowledge as I have in nutrition and weight lifting! But I hope to learn from her...even if she is half my age!  rofl

I just wanted to check in and let you know I'm still plugging along in my weight loss journey!  :)
