Starting Strong Monday!

Life has been so busy (hence my apologies for not posting this weekend!) but everything has been going really well!

I’ve been working hard, with the help of my pedometer, to make my 10,000 steps a day and I’ve been going to the gym a few times a week.

After a slow start, I’ve found some classes I really enjoy (though why the heck the lady next to me kept staring at me yesterday morning was a bit lost on me – maybe she’s never seen a chubby gal working out before?)!

DOMO! (1/365)

I’ve also been eating a lot of salads (thanks, in part to my new Rubbermaid LunchBlox that making taking salad to work so much easier!)

I lost another 2.4 pounds this week so I’m now down 23.4 pounds since January 1st (and 9 pounds in the last 3 weeks!).

Is it awful to say I’m so proud of myself? Because I am!

    May 2-So glad you are doing well. The first time I went to a gym, I worried that the guys would be looking at me.–(I don’t know why they would, I wasn’t young at that time.) I was relieved and amused that the guys, for the most part, were too busy looking in the mirrors at their bodies to notice anyone or any thing else –unless a particularly gorgeous girl came in. The mirrors won most times! Keep up the good work-you are an excellent role model.-el03ro

    Congrats on your 23 lb weight loss! It’s not awful to say you’re proud of yourself – because you SHOULD be πŸ˜€

    As for the woman at the gym – even more reason to keep going! Let her jaw drop as the pounds drop off!
