Sorry I'm late. Went to the nutritionist on Tuesday. Still maintained at 215. My measurement in my waist, however is down 1 1/2 inches. I'm pleased with that. I have been put on "blind weigh-ins" from now on. I was told to have Nathan hide the scale and when I do my weigh-ins from now on, I won't know what the scale says. Erica (the nutritionist) says this will help me stay positive and feel my successes.

I really need to embrace the positive in this. It IS a little over an inch off my waist (which I DO desperately need), but I would have loved to see the numbers go down. I'm also adjusting my diet to calorie counting. I asked her which she thought was more successful, carbs or calories. So counting I am.

Hoping in the next month to see (or feel, rather) some change. On a positive note...I ran my first fit fun run w/ Raven this morning. Her school does this once a year. Nathan ran the 1 mile w/ Tessa (they were the very first ones across the finish line, btw) and I ran the 2 mile w/ Raven. It was a blast. I must have a death wish or something, I'm also running a 5K tomorrow morning! EEK! ;)

Hi. I'm so boring & frustrated. I'm up to 216.6. Which, I'm not sure if that's better or worse than I have been doing. This week I've been all over the place. Maybe it's my scale? I've been up to 220 (which I haven't seen in a long time) and hovering between 217-218 all week. I'm baffled. I've been watching what I eat (lots of fish, chicken, veggies, fruit) hardly any breads.

I'm on week 6 of Couch to 5K. I've been running 3 miles at least 3 days a week. I'm hoping my inches are down. That's all I can hope for. I'm going in for my last appointment next Tuesday. Hoping there've been some big changes since January. That's all folks.

Hey all. Things are going good. I've gotta accept that they aren't going to go the way I always want them to go. I've been working out for 5 weeks solid (a minimum of 3 days a week) and am up to 216. Ugh. Hoping that my measurements are down. Will know this month. The nutritionist took them in Jan. Will be interesting to see what happens. Or maybe, depressing! haha

We were in St. George last week and I really haven't been on the computer a whole lot the last month. Sorry for my absence! Thanks for your support! BTW, I'm SO SLOW on the treadmill. I kind of feel ridiculous. It shouldn't take me 45 min to do a 5k, but does. That's hard to admit. I'm really outta shape. This is probably the hardest thing I've done in a long time. I'm hoping I can REALLY do it.
