I DID IT!!!!

Yay!! I FINALLY got below 143lbs. The last time I weighed myself I was 139. Oh happy day!!! Four more pounds to go and I'll be at my goal weight. My exercise partner has been out of town but I continued to exercise (half heartedly) without her and I've been watching my calories. I can fit into most of my clothes again and the weight lifting is the best thing I've ever done for my body. Now if only I could do something about the saggy skin!!!

It's getting hot in here!!

The heat is helping!! It's starting to get hot here in Austin and my appetite is dwindling with the heat. YAY!! We'll see how long it lasts before I acclimate. After all if I've had an appetite in the Arizona heat I'm sure mine will return soon enough in the Texas heat!!

BLAST this last five pounds!!! I can't get below 143!! I'm still exercising and I'm trying to watch my caloric intake but I'm just not as dedicated as I should be. My friend's doctor told her that weight loss is 90% diet and 10% exercise so I know where my problem lies. Why does food have to be sooo good?

So are we deleting and disbanding our fat blogs? I noticed that nobody has posted for a while. I'm still plugging along with my exercise. I'm having a hard time controlling my appetite (shock, shock). I have been neglectful in my postings though. Niesa, Anbo and I have started facebooks so that may be detracting from our fat blog postings. What do you guys think?

Another Plateau

Well I'm stuck again. I guess I should be glad I'm only stuck and not back where I started after my smorgasbord last week. My monthly friend is also visiting which helps explain the smorgasbord last week (like I need an excuse for smorgasbording). The exercising is going well but my eating plan is faulty. I guess I need to come up with a new diet besides artichoke jalapeno dip and pita chips. NOW what am I going to eat!!

Saturday, April 12, 2008


What was I saying about success? Mom and Dad are in town and I have not stopped eating since Friday morning. There is so much good food and so little time. Mom introduced me to this WONDERFUL artichoke jalapeno dip that is 90 calories for 2 Tbsp. Let's just say I've eaten WAY more than 2 Tbsp. Hopefully I don't undo in 4 days what it took me 4 weeks to achieve. I've still been exercising but I don't think my exercise can keep up with my consumption. It's a good thing that tomorrow is fast Sunday. HALLELUJAH!!

Sweet Success!!

Success is addicting. I like it, I love it, i want some more of it!!! It's getting easier to stick to my guns as I inch back into my clothes.

I've done it!

I FINALLY got below 145. It's still slow going but it's going. Oh happy day!!

1 Month to GO!!

So I don't think I'm going to make it to my goal of losing 15 pounds by May 1st. I've only lost five so far but I would settle for going down a size in my clothes. I would like to believe that I'm trading my fat out for heavier muscle but I think that is fantasy. The exercise makes me feel great though so I will continue doing that and watching what I eat and we'll see what this month holds. At this point I would be thrilled to lose 5 more pounds this month. Keep on keepin' on.

I can't get below 145. I know the working out is helping because I'm not as flabby but I still need to lose some more weight so that I can fit back into my clothes. I'm having a hard time being patient. "I WANT IT NOW, I WANT IT RIGHT NOW!! I WANT TO FIT BACK INTO MY BLUE JEANS, I WANT TO BE SO LEAN!!!! GIVE IT TO ME!!! DON'T CARE HOW I WANT IT NOOOOW!!"

Starting to see results!

So the working out is starting to work out!!! I've worked out everyday this week and I feel good and my body is starting to tone up. I still have weight to lose but seeing results is encouraging. I'm watching what I eat too but I think I need to buckle down and count some serious calories if I want to see better results. I'll let you know how it goes.

So far, so good!

Well I am on my way. I picked a great workout partner who is very diligent about calling and making sure we are getting busy. I lifted twice last week and walked once because I had preschool at my house but this week we are on track for five days of workout. It's slow going but it is going. I want it to be FAST!!! I have to remind myself that slow and steady burns the fat. I hope you all had a Happy Easter. My was mostly candy free so I don't know if I'd call it 'happy' but I survived it without gorging on candy. That's a first!!

I'm on my way!

So today was the first day of my exercise program. I lifted weights with my friend Melissa. We did upper body and I can already feel the soreness setting in. It almost hurts to type. Tomorrow I will have to use my eliptical (sp?) because I have preschool at my house and I won't have time for anything else. So I'm off to a good start. I'm 1 for 1. I'll let you know how tomorrow goes.

Better late than never!!

Hello my fellow bloggers!! So sorry that I have not posted for a while. Last week was a little crazy (Summer's birthday) and this week we're on Spring Break. We're getting ready to skip town so I thought I'd better write a few lines before we leave. I haven't started exercising but I have been watching what I've been eating and I'm down three pounds (first thing in the morning post-pee, pre-clothes). Next week I'm going to start lifting and walking/running. I'm not sure about the running part but the friend I'm going to be working out with is a runner so wish me luck!! Have a good and successful weekend. Remember YOU CAN DO IT!!!! Oh Anbo, Pat Greene is coming to the Nutty Brown Cafe on the 22nd. I wish you were here to go with me. Love you!!

Okay ladies, I'm getting serious now. I am challenging myself to lose 15 pounds by May 1st. That will require losing two pounds a week for the next 8 weeks. Totally doable. If you guys want to take the challenge too we can track our progress on our pages. WE CAN DO IT!!!!

I'm a slacker!

Sorry I haven't been posting on my blog. I have been doing better with my eating since I got back from sister's weekend but after the glutton I made of myself there, anything is an improvement!! I've just been crazy busy trying to get back into a routine after the fabulous weekend I spent with ya'll and Judd's in AZ this week so I'm a work widow. I did take "before" pictures but they are still on the camera. I'm not sure I know how to get them off. I got a new camera for Christmas and I haven't figured it out yet.

Monday, February 4, 2008


I can't stop eating!! I think I must be premenstrual because I'm definitely seeing a salty/sweet pattern in my binges. That means I'll probably start on the sister's weekend!! Ode to JOY!! I am going to take some before pictures and get them posted before this weekend. As Ashlyn said: Before and AFTER pictures - Priceless.

Pumped up!

Well I worked out again tonight. I really need to lift twice a week but I'm taking baby steps. I still need to take my motivational pictures. Sybil, thanks for the spiritual nutrition pep talk. I am seriously malnourished in that department.
Can't wait to see you all in a week!!!!

Hello, hello, hello, hello, I welcome you today. . .

To share with me my fat busting blog and by my friend in a very special wayyyy.

So, I really need to get serious and commit to a change in my eating habits but I am having a hard time getting motivated. My husband tried to talk me into an extra workout session on Saturday but I cried and stomped my feet and refused because I just didn't feel like it. So much for getting CLAP "pumped up!" It's time to motivate myself in a most serious way. Motivational pictures to come.

I am here to (clap) PUMP YOU UP!!

(said with an Austrian accent) Look at me. I am strong and sexy. I am not like a little girly man who can't handle some pain.

Seriously, I really did pump some iron tonight with the hubby. I'll be crying like a baby tomorrow!!

I have a blog!!

How exciting!! I have a blog!! I have enjoyed everyone else's blogs immensely and only hope that I can add to the entertainment! I have a lovely picture to share that Rylie took of me while I was rock climbing. It was the inspiration for my blog title. I'm too sexy for my harness!!
