Weigh In Wednesday & Hot 100 Update 5

Well, broke free of the 240's.  Again.  Barely. Everytime I do, I swear it will be the last time.  I really, really need this to be the last time!!  Today was 239.6.

The ankle swelled a bit and there was some limping after the 3rd time on the treadmill.  No pain, but it wasn't happy. So I didn't go on today.  I'll try it again tomorrow.

Sorry, actually posting this on Thursday, so tomorrow actually means today.  Ya, I'm confused to, I never know what day it is.

Hot 10 Update

Goal 1: Posting: I want to post regularly on the dieting blog here.

Continuing to do well.  I so don't want to be one of those people who just fall off the face of the blogging earth.  So sad when that happens! 

Goal 2: Food Tracking

Better.  Not completely consistent but better. 

Goal 3: Get moving regularly:

I've been on the treadmill regularly.  I'm aiming for 4-5 days a week on  it.  Plus I'm doing some pushups and weights and have been regular at it.  Yea!


  1. Kudos for listening to your body saying "Ouch" and not forcing any more exercise on it until it has had a breather. It's just as important as pushing yourself.

    Nice one on getting down into the next decade...keep it up.

  2. WOO HOO!
    WOO HOO!
    WOO HOO!

    Congrats on getting into the 230's! I knew you would do it!

    I'm with Phil - listen to your body and give it rest when it needs it.

  3. YEAH!!!! I knew you could do it. You did so awesome. Good for you. I'm so proud of you Debbi. I'm with Jo and Phil, good listening to your body. Keep it up girl you are rocking.
    Take care and God Bless!!!

  4. Whoo hoo, a new decade for you! Excellent work to get into the 230s. Bye bye 40s!

  5. Sounds like a perfect time to never see 240 again! Woot!

  6. Yeah you go girl!!! I knew if you would get started it would be great for you!!

  7. YAY! This is awesome chicka! Before you know it you will be walking that treadmill like a pro. Keep up the great work!

  8. I know what you mean about breaking that barrier. I've been stuck at my own weight wall for way too long now. I've broken through it a number of times but I always end up right back on the other side. So frustrating. Arg! You did it though. You're on your way. Just keep it up. You rock!

    Happy Friday! :)

  9. I love my treadmill! I'm not good at tracking at all, and lately haven't been posting that much!

    Congrats on getting out of the 240's!

  10. Great job with your goals - and this will be the last time! We will all bug you to make sure :)


  11. Good for you! And please don't drop off the face of the blog world. I always worry when that happens.

  12. Great job on those goals! Have you considered wearing an athletic brace while you walk on the treadmill? Just until your ankle gets a little stronger? I had to wear an air cast on mine for over 6 months, and walked with a cane for quite a while because it was so weak and sensitive.

    Eventually I got where I could go without either, but still couldn't do something as simple as stand on my tiptoes.

    So then I started specific exercises for the ankle, including standing on the tippy toes while hanging on to a sturdy chair, pushing myself partly up with my hands. When that became easy, I started doing ski jump on the Wii Fit, (I stand up on my toes when its time to jump). My bad ankle is now at least as strong as the other one.

  13. Congrats on the milestone. :-)
    And it looks like you are doing well on your Hot 100 goals.

    I had to laugh at your comment about the onion and apple pizza.. now that's a new one on me!!


  14. Debbi! Debbi! Debbi! Great work - and this week will be the week you leave that 240 barrier behind you!! It's going to be AMAZING to post your progress at the end of this week, isn't it? Go, girl!

  15. Excellent job! Learning when to back off is as key as learning when you need to push. Phil's way right on that one!

    Congrats on getting through the 240s! Now don't look back and just keep rolling.

  16. Great job on getting down past 240! I'm looking forward to that day, myself! Woohoo!
