1 = 1

McHotterson and I started working out again last Monday. I missed two workouts but did really well the other days.

I weighed in last night and I have lost 1 pound! Woo hoo!

I know that doesn't sound like much, but I don't have much to lose, so anything is great in my book!

Plus, I've read several places that a pound a week is an ideal goal! If I keep that up, in 8 weeks I will be at my goal weight!

I have to say, though, the weight loss is only a secondary bonus to the fact that I feel great! I am excited to get to the gym and the euphoria when I get off the treadmill (read: exhaustion) makes me want to go clean my whole house, or do lots of laundry, or even tackle Wal-Mart for groceries at 5:00 p.m. I just love all the energy I'm feeling and how well I'm sleeping again, oh and of course how my pants are just slightly looser than normal!

I had forgotten how good it feels to physically sweat! That's how I know my workout was a good one; when like yesterday, I get off the treadmill and I have sweat dripping off my head onto the floor! That's not easy for me to do, but it's awesome!

1 pound down, 8 more to go!


  1. I agree with you. The energy boost and better sleep are great!
