The anticipation is just about killing me…I have to be honest. It seems like it will take *forever* to get to the 100-pound mark. That saying keeps popping into my mind, though, and it is pretty relevant:
“Slow and steady wins the race.”
I know it will happen for me…eventually. The struggle that I have had with the last few pounds I have lost (really about the last 10) are preparing me for just how hard it is going to get after I pass that 100-pound mark. The weight is not going to continue to just melt off of me. I am going to have to crank it up to HIGH all the time to keep things moving. I am going to have to switch things up every few days to keep this body guessing.
I also wanted to share this with you:
The last picture was taken when my chicklets and I went walking at Sharon Woods. We walked the 3-mile loop they have…and the trail is beautiful! My chicklets loved it and had a great time searching for wildlife along the way. We ended up spotting a frog, fish, ducks, 2 turtles, an inchworm, a spider, lots of squirrels, and a chipmunk. That, of course, does not include the dozens of doggies we saw trotting along with their owners.
How is your week going? What is the goal you currently are working toward? How close are you to obtaining that goal?

As of this morning I have only EIGHT more pounds to BURN to reach 100 pounds lost!
This number is pretty exciting to me for a few reasons:
1. This is *definitely* the lowest weight I have seen on the scale as an adult!
2. My BMI is now 34.92 which puts me in the Obese Class 1 category instead of my previous Obese Class 3 (morbid obesity) and Obese Class 2 categories! That’s pretty exciting!
3. I am only 38 pounds away from my initial goal weight of 185…and I am only 23.2 pounds away from being in one-derland! I cannot believe I am that close in only eight and a half months!!!
I am sure Monday’s rigorous workout schedule helped tremendously! I spent nearly FOUR hours working out at the gym between physical therapy, cardio, Denise, and power yoga. It was insane! By the time we were in the last 10 minutes of yoga I actually wondered if my arms would hold me up for 10 more minutes. 🙂
So, in light of Monday’s insanity, I took it pretty easy yesterday and spent only about an hour at the gym. I do not want this body to strike against my efforts of weight loss, so I must treat her nicely.
10 weeks; 2 days
How is your week coming along?
