1/4 of the way. . .

I'm a 1/4 of the way to my weight loss goal and I will admit that, it feels FANTASTIC!!!

Seriously, this is what has kicked started my whole "resurfacing" journey.

By taking better care of myself, I see can myself resurfacing.

On 11/07/09, I met with a nutritionist at the urging of my parents because they knew I needed and wanted some direction.

She's a godsend.


Love her.

She's the perfect blend of being nice and being just mean enough for me to fear her.

Especially, when I eat things, I know I shouldn't.

Like this. . .

Or this . . .

I have done so well, but these 2 things are so tempting to me.

What a weird combination too, huh? 

By the way, these items are currently banned from my home. : )

I have also learned that the old adage "You are, what you eat" is in fact true.

At least, in my case, because if I eat crap, I feel like crap, ya know?!

It's amazing because I am actually craving things like water and fruit!

Who knew!?!

Maybe now that I am getting the eating part down pat, I can get a structured exercise routine going too.

Do you exercise? 

If so, what do you do and how often do you do it?

Any help or advice is greatly appreciated!

That's AWESOME!!!

I'm 1/4 of the way to my goal too!! ;)

I try to get in a cardio work out at least 3-4 times a week (I'd love to do more, but until it's warmer and can just run outdoors this is what's workable to get me to the gym)

Then, strength training 2 times a week. I LOVE Body Pump class at our gym - it's offered at YMCA's as well. I do so much better in class-type workouts than on my own - and the music is so motivating too!

My mom just walks every day 30-45 minutes and that has worked really well for her in addition to monitoring her food intake.

Good for you, Stephanie!

For me, especially since I've always been a big eater, exercise is a big part of life. The thing is, I truly enjoy it! That would be my recommendation; do things you enjoy, and try to do at least 1 thing a day for around an hour. Also, toss it up a lot. Do things that are hard and easy, and alter what you're doing.
