Making progress......

Well, 4 weeks into this, plus one day, and I'm down 9 lbs! I'm feeling much better too, and hubby got the black card membership at Planet Fitness, so basically, the two of us can go for the price of his membership.....I love weight training, it feels so good to feel tight arm muscles after a good workout.

I was originally planning on 20 pounds to begin with, but I'm half way there now, and I'm thinking I'm going to go for another 15, instead of 10.....We'll have to see how it goes, and whether my body is liking that or not.

How's everybody else doing too?

I had a pre-New Years resolution, and I'm sticking to it!

I am bound and determined to lose 20 pounds, and I'm going to do it! I did Weight Watchers with my sister last year, and I lost 21 lbs in 3 months. Then with my new job, and having food available all of the time, due to drug reps bring snacks and lunches, I put 10 of it back on. So....back on WW I go, and I really do like finding new recipes online. There are so many sites that have free WW recipes, that I spend hours looking at, and printing recipes.

Well, 3 weeks into this, I've lost 6 1/2 lbs, and now my hubby has joined me. We have a membership at Planet Fitness, and will be working out and weight training. I really like lifting weights instead of doing cardio, but we all know it's a necessary evil!

My secret desire and motivation for losing the weight, is that I am turning 40 in a couple of weeks, and I want to be able to wear a black leather halter bra on the back of my husband's motorcycle! I don't know if I would ever have the courage to do it, but that is my goal, at least, is to fit in one, and look good.

If you too are fighting the battle of the bulge, feel free to post your successes, and struggles!

I'm ba-aack! And Happy New Year!

Man, it really stinks not having a computer for a couple of weeks, but I'm back in action now. Good to "see" everybody again, and what is going on with people.

Hope you all had a great beginning for a New Year!
