I Work Out!

Left: a girl who could barely lift herself out of a chair without help

Right: a woman who can run 3 mile!

The mojo is coming back!

For all of you who know who bandedwendy is on youtube (google her...amazing women!) She is starting a SoCal chapter of WLSFA (weight loss surgery foundation of America). I have the honor of being able to join this chapter when I get to SoCal in June! (mojo booster) This means I get to shake the hand of bandedwendy and possible give her a big old bear hug! She has been a great role model for me since being introduced to her vlog in October.

Ok so that's all for now. Peace and love my darlings! Till next time :)

p.s. since people are asking how to find this WLSFA here is the link to their Facebook page

So I have started running again and I did 3.11 miles on friday in about 41 mins after working myself up to it over the course of the week. I have been riding me bike again too. We did about 8.5 miles today on the bike. I don't believe I have found my motivation again yet but I do love how I feel knowing that I got off my ass and just did it. So I am going to try to run or bike every day except Wednesday because I am starting class up again on Wednesday. I have to keep reminding myself that I couldn't even stand up by myself a couple of years ago and how for I have come. 88lbs is no small amount of weight and whether I have motivation or not I owe it to myself to at least keep going so I don't get to that place again. I am looking to do a 5k soon. Not sure when or for what but base host them all the time. So whenever I find one to fit into my schedule I will do it.

Also we have only 8 weeks left till we move. 7 weeks till I am sleeping on the floor and in strange beds for about a month. Thats really the only thing I hate about moving is strange sleeping arrangement's. I am lucky enough to not have to do all the packing. The Navy will do that for us. I will try to get some running in while we are on the road. My bike will have to be packed because the bike rack we have doesn't fit either one of our cars anymore.

I really have to start concentrating on my eating. I have been a sweets whore. Today alone I had a giant Reeses egg, half a blonde and half a bag Hershey drops. I have to really stop the bad not caring eating. I have been saying I want to see 100lbs gone by the time we leave and it is still doable if I get my act together.

off to bed now, love you all and have a great week.

I have hit that point in my weight loss journey where I am officially out of the newbie excitement stage. Ok ok, so I have been there since about Christmas. Now I will proceed by giving you a bunch of excesses...winter hit full swing and I have been to cold to move, or I have been so busy with school and work to have the energy for anything else. My knee hurts when I bend it at the wrong angle so I shouldn't walk at all, the couch told me so.
Chocolate is a super food as long as it's dark chocolate.
So many excuses so little time to use them all. I am even a lucky girl with P90x videos and an elliptical in my living room. Still Have not yet hit the 90lb mark. So if you went to BOOBs 2011 I still look the same.

For those of you who are farther along in your journey than I am. How do you keep up the motivation? Getting back into running is the most daunting task in my mind right now (saying a lot since I am prepping for a cross-country move).

I am thinking of moving back to no scale months again just to up the motivation not to see a higher number at the end of the month.

Ok everyone I need some feed back...

I have your average run of the mill port on old Phyllis (band). Since doing P90x I have been having a little bit of pain during the ab work out. I have been thinking about asking for a low profile port after we get settled in California in June some time. My question to you all is, do any of you have a low profile port and what influenced the decision to get the low profile port.
