The first big goal

I'm down 10lbs officially. I figure that it has been a few days since the flu has passed, my eating has been back to normal, and the scale should be settled.

10lbs. Finally!

I'm thrilled about this goal, but I know it's because of my new job. I haven't been eating as much, and I've been insanely busy. I'd prefer my loss to be as a result of lots of exercise and an amazing diet.

Oh well - there's still hope for all of that!

Next five pounds - here I come!

that's great!
i just found your blog.
i love when people really work on reaching their goals. its hard sometimes to really take time to make conscious decisions about their health.
i am a fitness instructor (at trainer's fitness) part-time, and i find it so rewarding when my students keep returning, and start seeing results!
best of luck to you on your journey.

also, i have a question for you about a health/beauty product. could you shoot me an e-mail at
so that we could discuss?!/

Yay, Sonya! You could've had your new job make you snack all the time, but you didn't. I count this as a total success!

congratulations on the 10-pound loss! you couldn't have lost ALL of it due to work :P at least half of that must've been from the diet and exercise ;)

anyway, mind if i link you up? i'm reviving my weight-loss blog, and i figure reading other blogs will keep me motivated :)
