It has been a while since I posted. I had to put my weight loss goal on hold for a while, busy with school, work and tax season. But I must say that I am glad that Britta and I decided to get help through a personal trainer. I used to, key work here used to believe that it was a waste of time and money to hire a personal trainer, but to my surprise it has been the best investment I have made. It's been about two month and it has been very hard but worth it. I was getting upset because I wasn't seeing any loss on the scale, so I decided to avoid the scale all together for now, but I have notice that I have lost some sizes on my stomach and face, and my legs are getting tone (squats, lots of squats). I feel better and stronger, core exercise do that, WOW, I learned something, I used to lift weights but this is much better, I feel younger. I am looking forward to seeing a six pack this summer, even if I have to spray painted...LOL , just kidding.
I can actually run 2 mile on the treadmill, I am working on doing the same outside, it is a totally different feel to it. Well Britt, we are not looking back now, I keep telling myself, "eyes on the goal", my life for the past year has been a life of goals, some big and some small, but I am getting there.

I must say that I can not wait for spring to get here. I want to be able to go hiking, biking, walking and running. I feel trap at work, home and the gym. It makes it harder to focus on working out. I started slow this year with the weight loss and my doctor told me I need to lose the weight, so now it is not just me wanting to look and feel better about my self, it is a health issue which it is greater than my vanity. I did well this week so far and I am going to stick what works for me and that is doing the low carb, high protein program from South Beach and Atkins.
Working out is definitely the power behind my weight loss. Britta thanks for the picture that is going to be my inspiration. Wow, I can not believe how much I change and how much weight I gain in the past ten years.
