Getting Thin In 2010: Back On The Road To Success!


Well...it's been 3 weeks since I decided to get serious again about this weight loss goal. I've been praying about it, eating less, and (starting today) moving more!

By eating less and praying about it, I finally got the scale to budge. You know I've been up and down with this since February (wow, I really didn't think it had been that long). As of my weekly weigh-in today, though, I'm back down to almost the lowest I've been since I started trying to Get Thin In 2010! I have lost exactly 5 pounds.

Progress To My Goal: 5 pounds lost, 20% of the 25 pounds I'd like to lose.

Today I started back on Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred. WOW - I am out of shape! I'm excited to start feeling good about myself again, even if I just get a little toned and don't lose as many pounds as I'm hoping to.

You know...there are bad days, and there are good days. Life happens, eating out with friends is a reality, and eating cake at a birthday party is enjoyable.

I'm just trying to stay positive, not give up, and put the "bad days" behind me. On the days that I mess up, I try to start over the next day and forget about it, rather than giving up and blowing it completely. My progress has been like molasses. I used to be able to lose weight in no time at all. My life is different now, though, and I have to try to push through, despite my present circumstances...

I'll try to update you again next Monday when I weigh-in again! Also, I think I will talk about the number one factor that inhibits my weight loss. Until then...

Your post really hit home, based on reading your blog I purchased the 30 day shred video from half.com (for like $3.00) and have been doing it every day (sometimes halfheartedly)and have lost a total of 9 pounds in 14 days. Not the best results but not bad either. We weigh in on Mondays and I almost let it derail me yesterday when after a week of trying, I lost 1 pound. However, I am on level 2 in the 30 day shred and pushing on. After 30 days of this I am going to purchase the zumba tape. Thanks for helping me to motivate and sharing your story!

Way to go Meagan!!! I'm so inspired to get back on track myself (although I've tried and failed a zillion times). Congrats on those 5 lbs! I know how hard it is and every ounce is a victory!
