1 more pound for January….

That’s what I loss this week. Not a huge number but added up to my total for January it’s 9 lbs. I can handle that, I will take that and start February at 185 lbs.

This month is my health club Winter Melt Down, the more I lose the less next months dues will be. Since life isn’t easy in the money parts here I better get to work losing a bit more. Even if it’s another 9 lbs and with my insurance kick in I should be able to afford March and maybe even April. I’d like to stay at the gym until the snow melts.

My migraine is finally gone. Saturday I thought I had the touch of the flu but think it was my new multi vitamin. I’m going to try taking them before bed so they don’t upset my stomach.

It’s a new week. Tuesday is weigh in at the gym and then starts the mini triathlon. I need to swim a total of 90 laps, walk 26.2 miles and bike 112 miles. I’m not worried about the walking or even the biking but the swimming the laps, I’m not to sure about that one. I can do two before I’m tired, I don’t know. I’m going to try my best. For the mini triathlon I have 6 weeks but out of those 6 weeks I only have 11 days I can work out for more then a couple of hours, the other days will be limited to either 5:30 am and hurrying home by 7:30 for daycare (got travel time too) or after 6:30 pm and the gym closes at 9:00. It’ll be hard but I will give it my all.

So there you have it, 185 and I’m feeling fine and really am becoming very happy with all the work I’ve done. Less then 3 months to go to be at my goal weight of 165, to wear my wedding dress on my 31st anniversary. I can do this, with your help that is. Allan’s challenge, your support, you all holding me to my word. It’s making this all possible.

For my miles towards my 400 for the year, it was 31. Pam at Empty Nest has joined me on this quest. If anyone else is interested you can link up and join us. I said that at years end there will be a prize lottery for anyone that succeeds.

Take care everyone and have a great week. God Bless you all!!!

I like that your gym is allowing discounts for weight loss. You've made a great start to the year with 9 lbs off in January. Way to go and good luck with that triathlon.

9 pounds is really cool! Melt away, Julie. I am thinking- imagine if you'd made a plaster cast of your original self earlier! You'd be walking in and out of it today!!! :D
