    Saturday's progress report: 3 more pounds gone!
    Weigh-in days usually weigh heavily on my mind, but once the Poon scale gave me cheer-worthy news my mood brightened!
    Hope anyone struggling with either diet or exercise in their valiant efforts to get back their body or to re-shape it for the first time for health reasons, I am WITH you!!
    Strength in numbers....

    I have noticed this month that Longos has partnered with Toronto Rehab Foundation to present the Healthy Eating information in conjunction with Cardiac College. Might be a useful resource for anyone wanting some help with eating to maintain a healthy heart.

    Given all the pop I have been taking in this month, I need to see what the scale tells me about my weight. With the longer daylight hours in the spring, I should find it easier to drink water. My skin will thank me once I rehydrate it.

    Goodbye March! Good bye four more pounds!!
    Yeppers! my weigh-in at the Clinic this morning was a true comfort.
    Dr. also said that ALL 4 of those pounds I dropped were of the " fat " persuasion....double hee hee!
    ( that is now 57 lbs melted away since end of Oct )

    Even better is my BMI has now improved. When I started this programme my BMI categorized me as Stage 3 Obese.
    ( not sure if any of you remember Dr.'s used to call that morbidly obese, but they have renamed their categories into Stages 1,2 and 3 to be kinder )
    My new and much improved BMI now categorizes me as " just " overweight!! No more Stages of obesity!!

    I wanted to dash home and reward myself mixing up a batch of creamy dreamy Greek yogurt with powdered cocoa and stevia,
    ( a yummy dessert I invented and up until 3 weeks ago thought was totally allowed! ) but once I got home I thought " why is my initial instinct to make my reward a food item? " . So I decided nope....I'll wait for my lunchtime and enjoy what I had planned to eat then.
    I'll have to figure out a much better reward later.

    Carry on being strong in whatever method you are all using to improve your health and fitness levels!!

    I will take the successful drop of 3 more pounds over this last 2 week period as a sign that I can do this....right till the end when I reach my goal weight!! Feeling strong again.

    How is this idea for a true visual motivator for our weekly or biweekly pounds successfully dropped??



    I am going on the hunt around my house now for what I can drop " 60 of " into the jar on the right!! ha ha
    I love this!! @Lynn49 what do you think ?

    The tricky Easter Bunny didn't catch me off guard! I stayed away from all of his tempting treats.




    My weigh in was this afternoon. I eagerly read over the little printout from the scale that they give you and saw that I had lost 2.5 more lbs!!

    So as the Dr. entered the room I made a sad face and hung my head down some and said " I can't believe I gained 5 lbs! " and he was unusually understanding saying " I've been hearing that a lot today, Easter is a very tough time to be on a diet. "

    But then I said " no, no, no, I was only kidding! " then he checked my data on his computer and said that 1.5 of the 2.5 I had lost was fat! I never get tired of hearing that.

    So once back home I quickly removed 3 of my pretty blue " gems " from my Pounds To Lose jar and dropped them into the Pounds Lost jar. Ya can't split those plastic gems in half and anyways the day after my weigh-ins I usually drop another lb or so. That is now 63 lbs represented in the GONE jar with just 37 remaining in the other.

    Good Luck everyone on this long haul of a journey towards smaller summer clothes and more energy!!

    I made the statement yet again ( in my head ) when I stepped off the scale at the Clinic....." Sheesh! I only lost a pound? "
    So grateful that by the time I walked around to the workout area an acquaintance in the class rescued me from myself and so I will post this photo to remember to celebrate ALL losses.



    Tally ho!! I must keep going.

    @walkonby I saw someone using jars like that on my ddp yoga group. He had like 150lbs left to lose though. I think he was using marbles.

    Anyway, I havenít posted here for a little while. I was posting mostly in the chat thread but I have kept plugging along. Here are some before and after pics.

    today at physio I did 15 push ups 2 times!! and did my " step up stuff " on the higher step apparatus as well as used higher weights while doing squats and such. At this point I am not sure which muscles will be cursing me tomorrow but they will have to just take a number!

    maybe a warm shower using the pulsing feature might help with muscle soreness

    @Shwa Girl we don't have any fancy gadgets or removable shower heads to play with here...... both bathrooms just have a tap on and off and the water flows out at the top. ha ha
    However, I did take 2 muscle relaxants and placed a warm heating pad under my thighs as I sat in the recliner. That felt so nice!!

    I dragged my lethargic butt to my workout this a.m. but I postponed my May 25th scheduled weigh-in until June 1st.
    This darn cold/cough nonsense thing that decided to burrow into my perfectly content body a couple of days ago is upsetting my metabolism! Well, that or it was the giant double chocolate muffin I scarfed down the other day!
    There are some moments/and or days where I succumb.

    I know a few members here ( as well as myself ) have participated in and are still experiencing the positive benefits from I.T. ( Intermittent Fasting )...... however, after watching this very long video ( it is so long .....ha ha ) I have come to admire and appreciate more and more the power our bodies have to instinctively fix, heal or simply regulate itself.



    Enjoy watching if ya have Nuttin else to do!!
