Skipped Back 10

February 21st, 2007

Monday I spent the most wonderful day at Oakland Cemetary with a friend. We walked for 3 houres there. I'm guessing that because it was pretty leasurely and we didn't see the whole 88 acres. I think we saw about 15 to 20 acres. I normall walk about 3 miles in about an hour when I'm walking for exercise so I think I did about 3-4 miles that day. Not sure. Haven't logged it in to the challenge yet.

I just love my newest lil toy. The pedometer can be worn even during my Firm workout and it keeps track of miles! Whoooooot!

I went out walking last night since I joined a WW challenge and logged 2 more miles last night. Good for me!

I also bought a WW pedometer that also measures points earned, distance, and steps. It can be customized just for me. JOY! I love my newest little WW toy!

I was a goof and didn't check my LJ before setting out to the Atlanta History center for our weekly walk with walkingatlanta LOL! It was cancelled due to the cold. I went not knowing and thought it odd I didn't see anyone, but I figured, hey I'm here. I'm gonna walk anyhow. So I did 4 miles. I saw the lovely Cherry Asian gardens, the Quarry garden, the Tilly Farm House, the Swan House and gardens, the Peace garden, as well some of the general property just looking for the trails. I soon found them and throughly enjoyed seeing all this stuff. It felt good to earn 6 APs for Weight Watchers *grins*.

Hope everyone had a great week. I think I might play with creating a ticker from www.tickerfactory.com for my challenge. LOL

Well, I managed 2.4 miles on the challenge this Sunday with the walking group. Now, hopefully next week I'll be feeling better. I fell Sunday evening and royally bruised my tailbone. Yeah, I'm at work today, but I'm not a happy camper. I'm still in quite a bit of pain today and sitting is not fun. *sigh*

I want to go to Chastain on Sunday for our 3 mile walk, but I'm feeling under the weather today. I'll take it easy today and tomorrow and see. I'm not cancelling yet. Hope I'm feeling better soon.

I'm just about to go add 3 more miles to my chart on Eowyn's Challenge! WHOOOOHOOOOO!

January 13th, 2007

Ok, I lurked, I waited, I watched, and today folks, I JOINED!

I spent an hour in bed telling myself that no matter what the weigh in was, I wasn't going to let it bother me. I was there changing it, so why sweat what the first weight was?? I'm pretty bad about having a worse self image than is reality, so I was really having a mental war. I didn't even go the to the early meeting like I meant to do. I finally *did* get up and go to the 11:30 meeting. I like the leader, and enjoyed the group that I was with. I'm so proud of myself for not chickening out.

SQUEEEEEEEEE, I even got 2 bravos today for participating! Next week, I get a bookmark. I'm so happy! Ok, here are the stats:

Beginning weight: 305.6
10% goal: 30 pounds

Won't worry about my ultimate goal weight until a little later. My leader said she would help me decide.

*so happy I'm cross posting this big time!*

A pic of me as a "before" pic and the post I made in a locked journal and in _weightwatchers:

I thought I was going to wait until I joined up at weight watchers again to make this intro post. I think I'll go ahead and make it.

Reasons for rejoining weight watchers again besides the fact that I have gained weight:

1. My sister and mother have diabetes. I don't have it, yet. WW won't keep me from getting it if I'm going to get it, but Healthier is better.

2. I just don't feel good anymore. Small things but.....

3. I want to have a baby. I have low fertility working against me. I know losing weight will help

4. I want to be at a healthy weight for *me*. I just can't do it for anybody else. It's my body. In years past it was because my mother or grandmother wanted me too. Well, I'd lose weight but it didn't last. I was doing it for the wrong reason. It has to be *my* need, not someone else's. For some reason, it has taken me far too long to realize that fact.

Things I'm doing now to be proactive. I'm exercising a couple of times a week. Just walking for health. WW tells you not to in the first few weeks of the plan, but I'm really enjoying this walking group and I've been on WW before. I think I'll be ok. I'll bring it up with the leader on Saturday. I don't think they will have an issue with it. They may limit it a little though. They may be fine with the routine like it is. I'm also being much better about my water intake. I got away from it for a while for some reason. I don't have any issues with the water thing, so I don't know why this happened, but it did. I'm changing that. I've already gotten the money together to join, have found the closest meeting place, and I've picked my favorite time. WW online was great for that.

I'll post about my first meeting sometime on Saturday or Sunday. Thanks everybody!
