A weighty update July 30, 2006

Filed under: Uncategorized — Shannon @ 8:41 pm

Just wanted to let you all know that I am succeeding in my new healthy lifestyle.  I am not eating past 6pm, upped my intake of water and run/walk everyday.  I have not lost an ounce.  So frustrating!  I am trying so hard and am eating so healthy.  I definately feel stronger and my legs look better.  I know muscle weighs more than fat and all that.  Has anyone else ever ran before?  I am finding I cannot suck my stomach in anymore?  Any words of advice?

    Even if you aren’t losing any weight, I am positive that you’re body is much healthier now. I think the weight loss will come — for me it took about 2 to 3 weeks before I really noticed it on the scale. After that it just dripped off of me. Of course, I was much more overweight at the time so it was easier to see results.

    I think that, right now, the best thing to think about is how you are improving your health and how that will ensure you are around much longer for your kids. Even though I lost weight several years ago, I wasn’t really going to the gym or anything. Once I found out we were pregnant, I really wanted to ensure that I was around for a while. As a result, I have been going to the gym 3-4 times per week for the last 10 months. I have never felt better about my health.

    So……in the long run this is good. I know that you know that. And you should know that you have a lot of supporters out here that are happy for you and cheering you on!

    Just stopping by to see if you had a new lifestyle update….and low and behold you do. Your run that you are doing is amazing. Such stamina. As far as the weight goes, it will come off. One suggestion, however, that seems to help me is to journal what you eat everyday. Then that way you can annalze better what your regular comsumption is. It aslo makes you accountable for every bite. It also helps you to keep track if you are eatting 5-6 servings of fruits/veggies every day. Keep it up. I’m looking forward to seeing you on Saturday.

    You can do it Shannon! Remember that the number on the scale should be used as encouragement, but how you feel and move is more important than a number.

    I love you – stay strong!
