So that's why I felt so bad in 2008.

The previous post on Thursday, January 17, 2008 explains the excruciating pain I had during a personal training session. Found out months later through testing that I suffered from low blood iron...for years! Ack! Will be enduring a surgical procedure in a couple of weeks to correct a female issue I'm having and then back on the weightloss band wagon again! And Im actually excited about the impending challenge and to cycle outside in warm weather again. WooHoo!

Whew…No Paramedics Needed!

OMGah! Had my FREE personal trainer session today and 30 minutes into it I was holding on to dear life! (thought bubble) Is this the end? Why does this beginning hurt so much? (end thought bubble) Now I've started back before, but I have n e v e r felt pain like THAT before. My stomach felt like it was going to crumble apart! I felt sick, yet not nauseous. But I bet if I thought about hurling I would've. Ha!

So this is what "starting over" feels like for me. It has been 1 year since I stopped working out. I moved outside the U.S., became malnourished, lost ALOT of water weight and looked hungry upon arriving back to the states 3 months later! Fast forward to today and I am 15 pounds heavier, but am still the same jean size. Go figure.

That personal trainer session was a wake up call that I don't want to NEVER start over again!

Look at me! I'm a gym memeber again…WooHoo!

So, I signed up for the Discovery: National Body Challenge 8 week FREE Ballys membership yesterday and ended up a 2 year committed Ballys member. I vow to use this membership as much as I can. I want the body I worked so very hard for back! I gained 15 pounds since June 2007 and enough is enough. Tomorrow is my first personal trainer session and the game begins;Tis time I wanna win!

Who would've thought?

Well, I got into the size 10 I have always dreamed about. Ha! My mom gave me the uncanny compliment of saying, "You are the size you were in high school)

My weightloss resulted from:

- Living in Costa Rica for 3 months and not quite knowing what I was getting myself into.
- I walked e v e r y w h e r e everyday due to not having a car and having to get to school somehow.
- Lost my appetite for the first month because of speaking countless hours and being sleep deprived from constantly kicking out Jurassic Park out of my rental house.
- Once I gained my appetite back, I only ate fruits, vegetables and peanut butter and cheese. I did not like the taste of the beef in Costa Rica. Not even the ketchup!
- I did an adventure excursion almost every weekend until the rainy season started in May.

All in all I believe I lost about 10-15lbs. Now I just need to tone it all up, because my stomach still looks the same. Ha!

"14" is the magic number.

I am 14 pounds away from my plan weight of 149lbs. Such a small number when you think about it. I must write my plan wieght down, so I am not afraid of actually acheiving my plan. I am much afraid of success. Success scares me, because nothing will ever be good enough for me. I constantly have to have challenges in my life. (on the contrary, that is probably why I have challenges in my life. Ha!)

The Universe will help guide me to my plan. 149lbs.

Following Dr. Ian's Smash Diet (of Celebrity Fit Club), cheating now and then, moving and breaking a sweat 6-7 days a week helped me shed these 2 pounds this past week.

Found my old Weight Watchers Membership Book dated 2002. My Starting weight was 195.8 lbs! The heaviest I have ever been! WW set a target weight lost of 19 lbs. Today I am 32 lbs lighter from my heaviest weight. Not too shabby. And best of all, managed to keep the weight off for almost 4 years now.

I'm loving it! "14" such a small number...Come on Karma, you can do it!
