100th Post! Most Excellent!

Today is my 100th post in this blog since I started it in February. If that does not show some real dedication, I don't know what does. ;)

It never ceases to amaze me how much my mood can shift, so drastically, in a matter of a day or two. If you recall I was all doom and gloom on Monday, and today it's 180 degrees. Huh? I can chalk it up to a) crazy hormone stuff or b) the amazing power of positive thinking. Or both, of course.

Still, I am amazed. *shakes head*

Chalk up another day of clean eating yesterday, and another good outing this morning, this time intervals of running and walking (5r, 3w, 6r, 2w, 5r sandwiched in between 5 minute warm up and cool down). Today I stopped at the grocery store before work to load up on veggies and fruits for the day, as well as a couple mutigrain rolls and a spicy lentil soup for lunch. I'm continuing to log my food and will do so until I don't feel like it again. I must admit that there is something very comforting about keeping track when you feel like you're in the middle of a personal crisis.

I tried on the pair of size 22 grey dress pants again this morning to check on the progress there. They are fitting much better even though I haven't lost much more weight, so much that I could wear them comfortably. I would definitely wear a long shirt with them, though, as they still make my belly look like a balloon. Not for much longer, though! I figure another five pounds and they'll be in full rotation. At this rate, I may be able to get into normal sized stores sooner than I originally thought!

I'm going to keep this up, and I will definitely have no problems reaching my goal of under 300 pounds by the end of the month. I can't wait.

Feels SO good!

YOU CAN DO IT!! Thats great that the pants are fitting better! A lot of time when we are not losing pounds we are still losing inches!

Have a SUPER day!

Yay! Your positiveness is infectious. You're right, our moods are so unbelievable sometimes. When I'm down I get convinced I'll never be back "up" again. Then, wham! I'm back. So, welcome back!!

Great attitude! I'm certainly not going to get in your way. I have a feeling I'd be steamrolled. :)
