Update

I'm sorry I haven't been around much... I have a million excuses/reasons... my daughter's been on summer break and hogging up the computer. Work has been crazy. I'm still trying to handle the Ross situation. I've been exercising a lot more with leaves me less time to sit in front of the computer. I haven't updated any of my blogs in a long time... and the list can go on.

The good news is last week I got my 3o pound award! I'm currently down 31.2 pounds! 165! I've given myself two weeks to get under 160. I think I can do it.

I finished my first round of the Fat Smash Diet. I didn't do it perfectly but good enough to drop a whole bunch of weight. I gave myself about a week on phase 4 (which is the final maintenance phase) then started my second round. I'm on day 3 of Phase 1 round 2. I feel good. I've been exercising 5 days a week for an hour a day... My legs are SUPER toned... I've lost about 6 inches off my waist, and a few here and there... I carry the most fat in my belly area. My waist is now slightly under 33 inches which taking me out of being high risk for Diabetes (due to fat).

I feel good... my body is changing and better toning techniques will be needed soon, but right now I'm working on just losing the weight and cardio mostly.

I've dropped from a 34.8 BMI (obese) to a 29.2 (overweight)... not bad. I won't be out of the overweight category until I'm at Weight Watcher's goal... which won't be long! 140 here I come. Only 25 more pounds to go. I want to be there before Christmas... that would be nice. My personal goal is 5 pounds lighter than that... 135.

I feel good about my body, stronger, healthier, just not happier... but we'll see what happens...

I promise to get back to my blogging ways. Vi starts school tomorrow so the computer will be free'd up more. I also need to find some time to make another video. Haven't made one of those in a while. My last one was introducing my 33 by 33 Challenge and I'm also done with it now... gotta do another video soon.

I hope you're all doing well... I'll be reading some blogs again soon too... I haven't forgotten about ya!

Hey, Rosie. Sounds like you're kickin' butt, even if you're not bloggin' about it regularly.

Keep up the great work, and congrats on moving out of Obese City. That's awesome!

Welcome back, Rosie!!! I try to cut people some slack on their lack-of-blogging over the summer if I know they have kids ... but I was planning on hunting you down in the next couple of weeks if you didn't post something :) Congrats on the great progress you're making!!!
