Getting a little more JOLLY, a little more GREEN, and a little less GIANT.

Good News and Bad News

Good news and bad news.

Which do you want first?

No weight gained, but none lost either.

This is the second week in a row that I've maintained my current weight.

While I'm grateful I haven't gained anything, I'm frustrated with this plateau. I have a goal of being under 200 pounds before January 20, 2012, Baby Cee's first birthday. I don't care if I'm at 199.9999 pounds. I just want to see a 100 on the scale versus a 200.

As of today that means I need to lose 30 more pounds in four months. That is totally doable. I just need to get strict with myself again. I have been anything but strict lately. Skipping workouts and eating chocolate covered pretzels isn't exactly "dedicated". It's time to change things up.

Blah. I hate change.

Joe and I decided to start P90X today. I read over the material last week and we even did the Fit Test to make sure we "qualified". I barely qualified, but qualify I did.

I'm afraid I don't have the most positive attitude in starting P90X. It just seems brutal and brutal isn't for me. But I need to do something different and the program is already sitting in my house. Might as well use it. Plus, Joe said he would do it with me and I will do just about anything to get him on board with this get-healthy journey.

Funny thing is, we were supposed to start today and he headed out of town on a business trip. Looks like it's just me and good ol' Tony Horton. Ugh.

Here I go. Hold me to it! Today is the day I finally start P90X.

(I have my "before" pictures but I'm only willing to show those side by side with the "after" pictures.)

I was looking at your goals on the side and you are doing so GREAT! I have plateaus! They are the worst part of the journey, but I am sure you will keep moving forward!

Evelyn, you are doing awesome! I find you so inspiring and, geesh, super brave! P90X...it terrifies me.

On a side note, have tried Pilates? I've been doing Pilates for years and I love the way my body feels when I've been doing it. I don't know if it will help with your plateau, but I think you'll like it.

Love ya!

Maintaining, for me, is harder than the losing (sometimes). :)

So I just have to say that 50 lbs in 6 months is awesome!! I know it's really frustrating to get stuck in plateaus but I just know that I would feel like a superhero if I lost 50 in 6. You're amazing!

I like the way you set your goals too. One thing at a time. Fabulous.
