Last cdcc check-in week 14

So this week has gone by quickly, for 2 days I thought it was Tuesday, lol I am honestly sad to write this last check-in. I have Learned so much about everyone and felt as if we were side by side conversing daily, not in different states/countries. I have not been able to workout this week because my son is sick again and I had to prep for my surgery on both of my wrists. I did not get a chance to weigh myself so ill just say i am the same, 161.4.I can not believe I used to be 180 when I started this challenge,i did noth think I could lose weight without physically being around ppl but the myth has passed. Weay not have physically seen each other but emotionally, mentally, and spiritually we had each other's back and pushed each other forward no matter what.I have drank 8-10 glasses of water and found a new love in herbal teas; So no more caffeine for me. My calorie intake was good all week until last night when hubby took us out for "a last night of wrist pain" dinner. I did go over my 1300 calories by 250, which I can say really is not as bad as I thought. I know when I get to a scale I am not going to like what I see, I am still going to stay optimistic.I can not upload a picture of me as of right nowbecause my computer has a Trojan virus; I am using my phone to update right now, sorry that I can not fufill the very last request of the cdcc requirement:(, i still plan on losing these last subborn 30 pounds and still posting pictures when i can for all the ladies following my blog;But on the other hand,I really enjoyed everyone's outlook and input when it came to the challenge. I wish everyone the best in their weight loss endeavors. You will achieve and look amazing;even after all we go through we are all still perfect imperfections!! HAPPY HOLIDAYS LADIES!

mid week check in

so this week is kind of sad for me, i know this is the last week of the challenge and i must say i enjoyed losing weight with everyone,i may not have wrote my blogs in as much detail as everyone and  as much as i could because i love to write; i was recently diagnosed with triangular fibrocartiledge complex and carpal tunnel in both of my wrist so it has been really hard to write/type,plus i am still getting adjusted to writing blogs.After this week is over i hope to keep in touch with everyone and maybe join another weight loss group. i am so close to my goal that i can taste it. i am really dedicated to do this even if i don't have support of a group like I'm in now; believe me when i say you gals are amazing. it is going to be hard for me to nominate just one person when everyone has been there and has had amazing stories to tell.I hope everyone has a great holiday,no matter which one you celebrate.:)

In denial but optimistic:)

i am not trying to think about how i wont be able to update and link up Christmas it has become part of my weight loss regime. i plan on continuing to update my weight loss even after the challenge is over so please feel free to keep in touch everyone.. but on a sidenote,thanks for allowing me to join Mir and Angela. i don't think i would have taken my weight loss so serious if i did not have the support of everyone in this group. i think i would have given up about 3 weeks in. I have never blogged before until i joined this group;now i can not stop. if i do not blog at least once a week i fee like my week is not complete. everyone around my is starting to notice that i have and i am taking my weight loss serious. i am starting to do more cardio workouts so when spring time comes around i will be able to jog with the kids with no asthma related problems( i hope). I am still unsure of how to browse through the website and see different blogs and challenges so i think that is something i will start doing this week, time permitted that is.

Week 13 of cdcc

This week has been amazing, I now weigh 161.4 so I'm 2 pounds down from last week. I have been drinking 8 glasses of water a day and walking for 3 hours a day. Yes that's right.. Not 30 minutes but 3 hours. I tried on a pair of size 12 jeans that I haven't been able to wear in 5 years and they fit, if I could have do a summersault, I would have, lol. My calories have not exceed 1300 calories, so even after exercise I would still have 150-200 calories doctor told me yesterday that I'm starting to look happier with myself and my response to her was I AM AND IT'S ONLY GOING TO GET BETTER! i hope everyonehas had a great week, one more left!

tunnel vision

With me knowing the fact i am so close to being 160 my mind has been set into tunnel vision. i am working out more then before, walking,jogging,and dancing and lately i have been on a soup kick; all kinds,(crab,broccoli and cheese, lentil, chicken..those are just some of the soups i have been eating for lunch), my breakfast consists of a different bagel w/o creme cheese.(multi grain, blueberry,cinnamon raisin, plain) and my snacks are apples and oranges. my husband said to me the other day" i love your determination, when you put your mind to something you always excel".. that made me feel so good and it felt like a big kick in the right direction. I know i can achieve my goal and i will everyone that saw me try on my Christmas dress said i look great but i know i can look better,lol 37 pounds doesn't sound like a lot but i held a 40lb weight the other day and i couldn't believe that's what i am carrying on my body. I have to thank this challenge for giving me the mindset to lose weight because i never had the confidence to do it other wise.SO THANKS CDCC AND EVERYONE IN IT!

continuing weight loss

so i am really optimistic that is can reach 160 before the challenge is over..i cannot believe that it will be over before we know it, i feel like i have really got to know everyone closely..i hope we all can keep in touch even after the challenge. i am looking to still lose weight by my birthday in June i would like to be around 130-135.  that would even be fine and since i still have a lot of weight to lose. I am grateful that i met so many females with the same mindset that i have when it comes to weight loss; To read everyone story and be apart of someone else's success is a fantastic feeling to me;but i was wondering if there are any challenges i can join after this one is over for the summer season please let me know..
