I have gained weight!!! Oh no. I am hoping I have changed some fat into muscle or something. My clothes are fitting better. I think my tummy looks better too. Oh well. This week will be better, less drama!

sparkpeople.com is a great site to keep track of your exercises and meals and it's free. I have found it really helps. There are also healthy recipes there.

Connie, muscle weighs more than fat so if your clothes are fitting better I would say you gained muscle! You have gotten me motivated to start getting back into shape. My 47th birthday is tomorrow so I am rer-joining weight watchers online and am going to start walking every day again. (I sort of stopped doing everything when my mom passed away) I need to lose about 40 pounds but my goal is to lose 20 by June for my brother's wedding.

Congratulations on the weightloss, Mish!! Keep up the good work!

Yesterday I joined Weight Watcher's online. Even though there are no meetings to attend etc. it does have you keep track of everything you eat which will help me. I am hoping to lost 20 pounds before my brother's wedding in June. I have started walking again too.

I am committed to getting healthier after a bit of a scare this past weekend. I am beginning to go through "the change". I had several episodes of "flooding" over the weekend. This is when you start bleeding very heavily and pass very large blood clots. When I started researching menopause symptoms, I realized that a lot of my health problems lately are really part of the change. I am determined to start eating healthier and definitely going to start exercising again. I need to lose about 50 pounds! I'm not as much as concerned about the weight as I am in being healthy. I figure if I work on getting healthy, the weight will come off as well. I just don't want to focus so much on losing weight because then I get discouraged. I'm going to measure progress on how much better I feel.

Goals for this week:

Wean myself off of all caffeine (again!)
Walk for 30 minutes every day
Drink at least 16 ounces of water every day
Drink one glass of soy milk every day

Next week, I will add more goals. Wish me luck!

Kathy
