I love you guys **edited

Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU for your encouraging words!!! I will get to my goal! I will enjoy that day!

I pushed myself yesterday even though I was T-I-R-E-D. I did my walk/jog during lunch for 11 laps, and I did a Biggest Loser DVD at 9pm. A total of 90 minutes of exercise for yesterday, and it felt good.

I work in Rego Park which is a predominately Russian neighborhood. I walk behind my office building, around the same 4 blocks each day. There are only huge apartment buildings, and some of the older Russian people hang outside with their walkers. I usually see the same people during the week, and also nannies walking with carriages. I guess they're starting to notice me since they've seen me every day since January. When I was finishing my last lap, one of the old men approached me and told me in his thick Russian accent and broken English that there is a gym a few blocks away with a huge swimming pool. I thought that was the cutest thing!

**Had to add one more thing. My co-worker who sits next to me just got a big box in of pills and stuff. She proudly showed me a box of colon cleanser, and maybe 4 different bottles of pills & supplements for losing weight and water pills. She said I should take them as well. Whyyyy??? She is in the 240's range, I was around the same when I started. She sees all I eat, and she knows I exercise, why whould she turn to all those cleansers, pills & supplements?? It's frustrating!


  1. Love you right back, babe! :-) The old Russian man was totally adorable.

  2. Great job pushing through the fatigue! :)

  3. People want magic. Much easier to believe in a quick fix than in yourself.

  4. Aw, that is really cute about that old man.

    Sometimes it's a drag working out at night, but it also makes me feel totally bad ass, too. It would be sooooooooo much easier to do nothing at that time of night.

    And while I've tried a million different diets before, I've never been one to go the pill route. Always was too scared. I hope your good habits rub off on your co-worker. Lets see how far she gets with her pills in the same time it takes you to lose 30lbs by July.

  5. It's a shame she couldn't see your success and know she could do it too.

    Love your dedication to walking during lunch!
