1,000th Post

Yes, this is actually my 1,000th. I guess I have a lot to say LOL! I made a commitment to myself to journal this journey and I have stuck with it so I am proud of that. It has really come in handy when I was trying to remember a timeline when something happened, I can just look back in my blog :-) It has saved me more then once.

Went to Personal Training yesterday as scheduled. I am not a fan of Monday's (is anyone?) but that was basically the time that worked for his schedule. I worked through it though and it was a good start to the week. My next appointment is tomorrow. I am pretty sore today but it is tolerable.  One thing we talked about yesterday was food/calories etc. I told him my target calories are 1,400-1,500. He thinks I am not eating enough calories! He wants me to send him 3 days of my foods logged and he will assess it. It will be interesting to see what his feedback is. Meanwhile... the scale is moving again and in the right direction! I will post my weight on Thursday.

Some of the long time readers may remember Julia who used to blog at Jewlia Goulia. She lost a whopping 160 lbs. She is a photographer (graduates in May) and did an award winning series of photos showing the aftermath of her weight loss on her body. Well, CNN Health featured her story on Friday and I thought I would share the link so some of the newer readers can check it out. It is graphic so if you are at work or around small children, you may want to wait to view it. Her website also features some of her other work and is definitely worth checking out.

I had a nice NSV (non-scale victory) this morning, I was able to wear a blouse that I have only worn once but have owned it for quite a few years. One thing I forgot about wearing this top is the sequins - they are chafing on my arms. I put a sweater over it and it seems to help but it is nice to add a new top to the mix.

Tonight I may go to the mall with Danielle. She wants to check out the Mac counter and I want to get my necklace cleaned (Tiffany's) and I have a Groupon I want to use at The Body Shop If we don't go then I will be working on some decluttering. We shall see. Until next time...

  8. Congrats on 1,000 posts!
    I have the cutest top but I ended up donating it because it irritated my arms so badly. The red rash I got after just an hour of wearing it was not worth it :(
    but good idea with the sweater!
