I Was Going To Write A Good Post, But...

I am up way too late and feeling much too sore! I did lots of walking today and my legs are not very happy with me. I think a fast soak in the tub before bed is in order.

One neat thing I will quickly share is that I realized today’s weigh-in means that I have knocked almost exactly ten points off my body mass index reading from my highest weight. Plus, I only have twelve more pounds to lose until I am no longer in the obese category, but rather wonderfully, gloriously, and simply overweight!

- 10 glasses of water throughout the day
- 1 banana
- 1 mug of gingerbread steamed soy milk
- 1 wrap on a whole wheat tortilla shell with egg white, feta cheese, spinach, and sun-dried tomato
- 1 Mandarin orange
- 10 hand-shelled peanuts
- 9 pieces of a California sushi roll with soy sauce
- 3/4 cup low fat piƱa colada yogurt

- 2 hours and 45 minutes of walking completed in 3 outings (45 minutes long, 30 minutes long, and 1 hour and 30 minutes long)
- 7 push ups


  1. Your food and exercise continue to look're so's a pleasure to read about! :)

  2. One of the happiest days of my life was when my Wii Fit declassified me as obese and announced in the chirpy little elf voice that I was "overweight." And then came the day it declassified me as overweight and I became "normal." NORMAL! Woot woot! I was never so happy to be normal in my life. Normal is a bee-yoo-ti-ful thing. I rejoice in being normal. But it takes a lot of work to remain normal, so what am I doing sitting on my behind typing on my laptop! The day is gorgeous in North Florida - sunny and cool. I think I shall go walk the trails down by the Intracoastal Waterway! Have a wonderful day!

  3. Well, you continue to hit those numbers out of the ballpark!! Your consistency and resiliance are very inspirational. You'll be at goal in no time!!!

  4. You are so inspirational. You are kicking butt!

  5. When I went from morbidly obese to severely obese, yes, I felt a little scolded...but a lot less morbid. 12 lbs to overweightsville. Sounds like a good place to visit.
    Have a great day. I'll be posting your award on my blog later.

  6. Ahhh the fabulous Obese category. I will be there for a while but will celebrate Overweight. Congrats on being so close. Gosh I love your sidebar pictures -- so inspirational!!! I will put mine on the sidebar when I actually have some results to post.

  7. Gingerbread steamed soymilk? Goodness that sounds good. From Starbucks???
    I love the sound of your wrap with the eggs and feta. Yum.
    You're a walking machine!

    It's really fun watching your progress. I'm enjoying it and you're inspiring me to do my best so I can get fantastic results as well.
    Have a great week, 266! or should I say 203 :D

  8. Thanks, everyone! Your comments make me so happy to be a part of this community; they always do!

    Fitcetera, I have been on some sort of weird Starbucks obsession since the weather got cold... I almost never used to go before. The drink is awesome, and the wrap is from their too. I better cut down on the eating out though with Christmas around the corner and moths already flying out of my wallet!
