I just wanted to give you a quick update on how I am doing with my goal of losing 100 pounds by November 30, 2011 and my walking efforts. I have bad news and I have good news.  Bad news first- I decided to take a week off of walking to let my body rest after the 5K and that week has turned into two…Not good huh?  I haven’t wanted to get out this week with the temps not going over 35.  I promise you this, if it is too cold tomorrow, I will use my Leslie Sansone Walk Away the Pounds DVD and get some walking time in. Deal?  Ok!  Now for the GOOD NEWS…ready?  I have lost a total of 8.6 pounds since I started my goal.  Woo-hoo!!  I told myself that when I got my first 10 pounds off, I was making an appointment to have my nails done at Nailz by Kelley so you better believe that I am gonna work hard this week so I can have my nails looking great by Christmas!

Thanks for checking in.  Keep pushing me to succeed.  I need the motivation and encouragement.

    YOU CAN DO IT! One day at a time! Then, after like 60 days, when you look back, you will weigh less than when you started! I focused on that 3 years ago and lost 40 pounds that way.

      Thanks 🙂 We should definitely do that! I think Amy is going to try to get a big team together for next year’s St. Jude 5K…you should join in!!!

  3. Hi, Christie! Wow – that’s a super encouraging start. I’ve missed walking these past two weeks, also – rain, cold, house guests, etc. – but hope to be back out tomorrow if weather permits. Any other weight loss tips you can share? Keep up the good work!

      Thank you Camille! The new Weight Watchers program is great. I am tracking everything I eat with their e-tools and can do it right from my mobile.
