Lazy Week

This week was a lazy week.  I ate well but skipped the gym everyday except for Wednesday and I have to admit, I feel better.  I needed some me time, away from the gym, to re-energize and focus.  I did managed to lose almost a pound.  I weighed in at 252.6lbs this morning giving me a 0.9lbs loss for the week.. I'll take it.  So close to a 40lbs loss!  Next week?   

At work, I finally managed to get my core french program running the way I want it to.  Kids wrapped up a dance unit that I was getting bored with.  And I almost have a class website sorted out.  I just feel like I got a lot done.  Oh and I got my class cleaned up last night, most specifically my desk, which had become a mountain of papers and things that I could not find room for.  

Most exciting news all week though came on Wednesday night, my very best friend in the whole world, she's like the sister I never had, told me that she got the call that he agency had a child for her.  I got to find out that she will be getting a beautiful 3 year old boy before Christmas.  Words simply could not express my happiness for her and her husband.  After years of struggling with infertility she is finally becoming a mother in just a few short weeks.  I, as the honourary aunt, look forward to spoiling this little boy like crazy! A trip back to my hometown in December will be necessary to help welcome him to the family. 

Next week I'll be back to my regular routine of hitting the gym and eating well.  Oh and as a side note, I have become addicted in a very short time frame to Tim Horton's Oatmeal.  It's delicious and it's good for you.  Gotta love that! 

Have a great weekend everyone!

Saying Goodbye to Morbid Obesity

At my highest weight earlier this year of 292lbs my BMI was at 45.7, it put me right into the morbidly obese category.  When I put my info into the calculator and it spit out the number I was horrified.  I was so over weight that my health and life were in serious jeopardy.  It was time for action but I honestly didn't really get moving until we got started over at A Nu(de) Motivation.  My weigh in yesterday nudges me into the obese category, which is still horrifying, but I have to admit I welcome the dropping of the word morbid.  My BMI as of yesterday is 39.7!  Still not a great number but what an improvement. In just under 6 months my life has changed so much!  I can't imagine going back now.  I will be working my weight down to the overweight category over the next several months.  63lbs from now, that will happen.  I know now that, it's just a matter of time before I get there.  No longer an IF but a WHEN. 

Have a great day everyone!
