11 Weeks - 77 days

I'm down 31 lbs so I'm still averaging 2.82 lbs per week, which is great.

I'm not getting as much working out in as I'd like, but I'm getting some.  People are really starting to notice my weight loss now, which is a positive thing and helps keep me motivated.

77 days with no diet coke, with only a couple of binges.  I'm feeling mostly strong these days.

I still wonder what it is that makes me wake up one day and be motivated, but the 2 1/2 years worth of days before that I had nothing...not a care to be motivated, not a care what I looked like or what I ate.  (and this was after losing 100 lbs and gaining it all back!!)

Mystery of life I suppose!

10 Week Mark

Day #70.  10 Weeks.   Total lost: 28.2 lbs.   Which averages about 2.82lbs per week.    It feels good.  People are starting to notice the loss, which is a great feeling.   It's a tough cycle since you aren't doing it for anyone but yourself, but the comments feel really good and satisfying! 

I'm certainly losing differently than the last time.  The first time I lost all the weight, I felt I was losing it in my butt first, but this time I'm losing it from my calves and torso.  (which I prefer to go first! LOL)

It's tough squeezing in that exercise, but I'm getting there a couple of times per week.  I took a bike ride with my daughter on Sunday, which was also very nice!

I'll keep checking in.  Noone on my blog roll has posted in a while!  I hope you all are doing well!
