Feeling great!

Thursday, October 15, 2009

Hello!! Yes I am still here and still doing great. Weight loss hasn't really gone down much but I'm not to bothered, so far it's been smooth sailing and now that I'm getting closer to goal I knew it would start to really slow down. Have to admit though I've been eating far too much 85% chocolate, I find it a little addictive!

I started a hip hop class last week, it was so so much fun, I used to do dancing when I was younger and it's something I love to do. Cardio to me is so very boring so I just don't do it. Dancing is some healthy 'low level' cardio and you have so much fun doing it. My calves were pretty damn sore too.

Still going well with the weight training, starting to get my strength back after my bout with the flu. Taking a while though.

Overall I am feeling really wonderful. I don't think in all my life I have ever felt so good about myself. I know that I'm looking a whole lot better but it's not just that. The energy I have is awesome! some people ask me what I'm doing that gives me all this energy??
For me all it really comes down to is eating right, exercising right and sleeping! I've come a long way from the tired grumpy lazy lady who ate a lot!


  1. Thanks for the update!Since my weight loss has not been as smooth sailing, you're success serves as great motivation to me:)

  2. Glad to see you're doing an activity that you enjoy. If you have exercise you look foward to instead of dread, you've won 90% of the battle!

  3. Well done Shell and keep it up! The thought of going back to a high-carb way of eating is unthinkable now, isn't it.

  4. I'm glad I'm still motivating even though it's slow weight loss.

    Yeah rachel so true, 1 hour goes so fast when you do something you love!

    I sure can't even imagine eating high-carb again, so unappealing to me!
