Default Tiny success on the way to bigger one

I started back to lifting after two years. I stopped to babysit my grandaughter fulltime and couldn't fit in trainer. I try to tell everyone the extra weight is from "having a baby", but nobody buys that. About a year ago I bought Cathe's dvd's but amazingly they don't work if you don't use them. On November 17, 2008 I started Cathe's nutrition calculator and started using some of her dvd's.

The tiny success is losing 7 pounds as of today in about 8 weeks. I would be happy with 30 more pounds, probably should lose 40 pounds, and thin at 50 pounds.

I will be starting STS with Cathe and the rest of you and plan to eventually get at least those 30 pounds off.

Joan

Joan that's AWESOME!!! I'm all for small victories on the way to much larger ones! I, too, have seen some good results (also amazed at the added benefit of actually DOING a workout! LOL!) since starting with Cathe back in August 2008! I have lost about 6-7, but have yo-yo'd during the holidays... I'm looking forward to fully (re)committing to my better eating and STS when it arrives!

GOOD JOB!!!

Another update,

I'm down 1 more pound for a total of 10lbs.

You have to celebrate small victory's or you would probably give up. I'm either 1/3, 1/4 or 1/5 the way to goal. I see the goal as a moving target. Let's get to 30lb loss before I move goal to 40 or 50lb loss.

Thanks everyone for the encouragement.

Joan

I agree with everyone, congrat's on the accomplishment. Those "few pounds" mean a lot and really start to add up - like the journey of a thousand steps (literally when using Cathe). I also had to find out the hard way that just having the dvd's doesn't work as effectively as using it. I know, hard to believe isn't it. :-D Congrat's again to you.
