Have faith

Claretta – Week 16

Time is flying by and here we are at the beginning of the Holidays – or so the department stores would want you to believe.  I’m feeling optimistic about staying pretty close to my plan through it all.  My trainer and I are getting along good and she promised that neither she nor the other trainers laugh at people like me.  I mean, I’m using 3# dumbbells for my squats and it kills me!  AND, it’s a really good thing that after laying on the floor in an attempt to do crunches, the machine next to me has a handle, cause you should see me trying to get up!  I don’t feel any different (ok, maybe a lot more sore!) and I don’t feel like I’ve lost any weight.  I do believe things are rearranging tho!  I know I ate too much candy here and there during the Halloween madness.  OK, I fessed up and feel better already!
I found this little note on Pinterest.


I printed it out and put it up on my refrigerator.  I have to keep reminding myself that I can do this, and I will do this.  It’s just going to take a while.  I’m trying to learn how to gracefully accept people’s comments and compliments when they notice the more improved me.  I just want to be a healthy size 10 so bad!!!

About Lexy

40 years old, "stay at home mom" to 2 boys (ages 16 and 14), wife to a chiropractic kinesiologist! I love blogging and learning new ideas. I follow the Weight Watchers Points Plus program and enjoy working out. I have run 2 full 26.2 mile marathons and 3 half marathons... and many 10k and 5k's. I love taking BodyPump classes and lifting weights. Working out has always been fun for me, but I struggle with eating healthy. Blogging has introduced me to a world of healthy eaters... When I first started WW... I just wanted someone to tell me what to eat! I didn't like cooking and I am not the kind of person that can just throw things together. There are tons of ideas out there and I love finding new and fun ones that I feel like I am capable of making myself!
