Ups and Downs

Hey Friends, my last two weeks have not been great, and I felt badly about that after having felt so inspired in my last Beginnings and Endings post.

Being accountable here has been such a help, though, that I don't want to remain in hiding. So here I am, biting the bullet!

On Tuesday the 26th I was 152.8, which was after a weekend celebrating our 39th wedding anniversary by eating! The warm goat cheese with almonds (to start,) the wine etc., were all great, but...I'm not sure I'd do it all again next time.

I also didn't do what I'd planned in terms of exercise, although I went for a walk whenever I could manage it. I realize that I need to make it a higher priority.

On Tuesday the 3rd (yesterday) I was 153.2, which I think had more to do with a stomach problem I was having. This morning I'm back down to 151.4.

I wanted to post a couple of photos that encouraged me, taken in August of 2007 and August 2008.

Sometimes we don't realize how much difference just 5lb can make. In 2007 I was 157 and in 2008 I was 152.2. Those few pounds made a big difference when I see the photos.

So this week I am trying for start of the next 5lb off, and aiming to build in exercise in fact and not just in my mind!

How is everyone else doing? I would love to hear from you!

Belinda, you look great. You look happy!!

I'm glad you posted - I've got one in the works too.

I have to get back to exercise as well...but more on that when I post.

Great photos of inspiration!

I need renewed motivation also so perhaps we'll inspire one another as we press in with this new September's beginning.
