Down 55lbs! Getting through the holidays without putting on any weight!

So, I made it through Thanksgiving weekend - yes, we might as well call it Thanksgiving weekend, because we are pretty much stuffing ourselves with leftovers throughout the weekend and if we're lucky, we're taking turkey sandwiches on whole wheat bread to lunch the following Monday (sans the mayo). Lucky for me, I only put on two or three pounds, but I quickly took it off (maybe it was water weight). The following Monday, I went to the gym and went all out on my workout.

I am happy to report that my weight has been pretty much stabilized at 145 lbs. I'm not upset about that. I'm just happy to not be gaining any weight. Enjoying the gym this holiday season, because it is empty! I have all the weights and equipment I want at my disposal! 

Hope you all have a happy and healthy holiday season!

It's Never Too Late!

Here's an inspirational video about Matty Fusaro's father. I'm in my 50's, so whenever I think I'm past my total fitness days, I watch videos such as these!

Life Changing Transformation

This video will make you cry... and inspire you to work toward a healthy lifestyle!

Progress Photos

I took the summer off from from my weight loss quest. I still did my exercise. I just wasn't so strict on my eating program, but I still managed to lose another ten pounds. Now I'm on my program full steam, so I can drop that last 25 lbs and get into the best shape of my life! 

Here is a "before, during and after" photo of me. The last photo was taken in August. 

Think Before You Eat!

Think you're going to "work off" that cheeseburger? Not unless you plan to spend the next two and a half hours on the eliptical. Below is a chart to let you know how much effort you'll need to put in to offset many of our favorite treats. Very eye opening!

More Than Halfway There

I've been on my weight loss program for exactly six months and I lost 40 lbs. I want to lose another 30 lbs, which will put me at 120 lbs.
