Another week gone in my weight loss journey and I've made a couple changes this past week...
First of all, I've joined the bandwagon over at Operation Skinny Bitch it's a relatively new website that has been created by 2 ladies, Shannie and Shannon (easy to remember right?!). The concept is to have a place for SUPPORT so anyone starting, in the middle or at the end of their weight loss journey is welcome. Also it doesn't matter what you are doing to get healthy...So if you're interested hit the link above or on the picture on the side bar and sign up!
Second, I've finally started an exercise program officially...I found out about the Couch to 5K program via one of the members on OSB, Sasha. The whole concept and plan is here, compliments of the Cool Running website. Let me tell you, running is NOT my thing. There are people out there that have it on their list of lifetime goals to run a marathon; Me? not an inkling of interest there...but I think I could handle a 5K and the program looks very do-able. So I decided to take the plunge...I have 2 of the workouts under my belt (and believe me, I am sucking some serious air out of the universe!!). I'm trying to find a 5K in October to participate in...I would really like to do a run for MS or the Susan G. Komen foundation...more on that as I find out information...
So now for the numbers of this week (which coincides perfectly with the weekly OSB weigh-in). I gained 0.6 lbs this week :( It seems losing my "motivation mojo" has caught up with me...However, I'm not making that big a deal about it because I'm sure the new changes will turn things around and help me get that Mojo back!
I leave you this week with a link to a couple of inspirational ladies who have been very successful changing their lives:
1) Jessie at Muthering Heights: Her 100th post was about her 100 lb weight loss! (and thanks to Cassie at Southern Domestic Goddess for leading me to this post...Cassie is also a featured Saucy Blog this week...she's funny...go check her out!)
2) JKW at My Journey to a Better Me: She's working to loose weight in 2008 (I hadn't heard that one yet, cute huh?!). Look at her picture diary on the side bar of her blog...AMAZING!
I hope you find these ladies as inspirational as I did...and good luck this week on whatever your better health goal is this week...remember to put your update in the comment section!!
