My first blog :) 11 wks, 3 days to go!

Well...I can't believe I'm doing this. I only wish I started blogging at the beginning of my journey.

A little background before I begin blogging about my daily struggles in the next 11 weeks and 3 days. Oops... just in case I never mentioned it, I'm trying to lose 20lbs+/- in the next few months. I weighed in today at 164.4 (Monday's official weigh in was 169.5) and want to weigh in on March 28 at 143. Wow,it will be hard but I am up for the challenge.

Since January 4th I have been journaling my food and now I will be journaling all my thoughts and ideas of what is working and not here on this blog. I am apart of the Biggest Winner program at Body Dynamics bootcamp here in Victoria BC and it has been instrumental in aiding in my weightloss to date.

I haven't worked out since the end of September of 2009 because I was preparing for my surgery. I decided to reward myself for the 80lb weightloss and have a lower body lift done so I didn't have to look at the loose, flabby spare tire around my tummy and back. The surgery went well except for the bump in the road which was two pulmonary embolisms in both of my lungs :( I am in recovery and getting back at it.

I am so sore from my 2 workouts this week, I go to the studio 4 days a week for a total of 5 hours of butt kicking workouts. The official weigh in for week 1 is on Sunday...I will keep you all posted - whoever is reading this.

  2. YO JODI! I'd like to see a picture of you on here gorgeous. Good luck in achieving your goal! I'm sure the final 20 will be a breeze - look how far you've come. Looking forward to reading all about it! I need more distractions at work...

  4. We'll do this together my friend. I'd like to lose 28 by program end to take me to 138lbs, so we're on a similar countdown! That'd be 80lbs total. OMG! What are you eating tonight? I made vegetarian chili...num!
