Week Two - Status Quo

Week two did not show a loss, but there was no gain either! Woohoo!! I am allowed to take one day off a week. I stayed off the sugar, but over the three-day weekend, my cardio suffered a little. Boohoo, poor little cardio!!!! I have certainly made up for that these last three days. Also, Tootsie knows I'm supposed to be walking more, so she spazzes out on me about 10 minutes after I get home from work! (I just know that she is the spirit of one of my deceased family members... probably my mom... who are making it their heavenly goal to keep me on my toes!)

There are only two or three of us "Big and Beautiful" ladies competing in this health/weightloss/get fit as a fiddle chain gang. Just about everyone else is within 20 pounds of a healthy weight; they already have a structured exercise regimen; and they are at least 10-15 years younger than me! They should all reach their goal by June. The rest of us flubber butts have agreed to cheer each other on and keep tabs on one another. If we Thunder Thighs can lose about 40-50 pounds by June, I, personally, will be so ecstatic I just might have to shout it from the top of the St. Louis Arch!

I want to thank those of you who have left such supportive comments for me. I think of you all when someone passes me crunching on one of those Sam's giant cookies (250 calories) or slurping a Starbuck's Mocha. I tell myself, "they love me, they really love me. I can't let them down!" Your kind words have meant so much to me - Thanks!

I'm waiting to hear you shout from the top of the arch.

Hope you loose some more this week. Keep on going strong! The first weeks are the hardest!
