Back in the Saddle Again

Why hello, family, friends and anyone else who for some earthly reason reads my blog. I've been out of touch for quite a while but am once again in blogging mode. Aren't you excited!? (I'm being sarcastic.)

So, the last time I blogged I was sharing my ups and downs with my struggle to lose weight. I admit that my last entry was me sharing my frustrations about a definite bump in the road, but it did not derail me. To update all my loyal blog readers, I joined 24 Hour Fitness (I signed a 3 year membership contract - talk about commitment!!!) and hired a personal trainer. Yep, I have my own Bob Harper (the trainer on "The Biggest Loser" for anyone who doesn't watch TV.) and I am loving it. It's definitely hard and I've had my share of injuries in the 3 short months I've been doing this, but I feel great. I've lost 33.4 lbs. YEAH!!! I have to celebrate this even though I am a little discouraged it's not more. I am up to working out with my trainer 3 days a week for 50 minutes and 6 days a week of 1 hour and 10 minutes of cardio. I'm also cutting calories and changing my eating habits and have been able to keep my daily caloric intake down to around 1800 calories a day. With all this 2 weeks ago I lost a whopping 0, yes, a big fat ZERO pounds. Last week it was a whole 1.4 lbs. It's been extremely hard this last few weeks to not let myself get too discouraged. Part of me says, what's the point. But I have to have faith that it will eventually come off. Besides, my trainer has already said he won't let me quit. He will risk being fired and getting arrested before he let's me give up. How's that for dedication? I love it!

So that's where I'm at. Tomorrow is my big weigh in for the week. Send good vibes my way. I'm hoping for a good weight loss.
