You Tube Fitness Videos

So some of you know I have been working out at my fitness class I take (Orange Theory) but tonight I was inspired by SFMOM who was dancing at home. So I searched for dance videos... and found one that is a little Silly - but got  me up off my chair and sweating - and not heading right to dessert and bed.   So I think I will see if I can keep this up for 7 days. So this is the 7 days of you tube videos... None of them are my videos... and I have a bunch that I love that  really work you

Foods been ok, except for two extra glasses of wine yesterday.    Going to to the gym... I hope.. really not too motivated and will do a splin class and then see my JC consultant. Will be great to see here..as it's been three weeks as she was away last week.    Anyway boring post,  am feeling boring.

Week 5 Day 1 Running App again

Welll - not much to read to day on the forum so far so thought I would spend a few minutes here. Today at the gym I saw this woman I usually see at the gym on either treadmill or express circuit. She has determination and I was thinking of offering my support (really she'd be supporting me as it is helpful to have people to say hi to at the gym). One day hopefully I will say hello. I joined this gym juts a few months ago because it is about 1 mile from me.     It is never easy to

Travelling with Jenny - Time to take it back a notch

OK So these past two weeks I have been staying at a hotel in Atlanta and eating out for most meals (though they have Publix and Whole Foods... so I did not have to) . Also Drinking wine (a couple of glasses) each night. Net net weigh in this morning - I will be up a pound or three. People say the eating comes form stress- I think it also is insecurity, So surrounded by really bright stars from my company on ,my new project doing something I am not the worlds leading expert in (go figure). creati

Today I am a BadA$$

So every day I discard, giveaway or put in the upstairs closets outfits that are too big. It's an adventure. So after my workout class - I basically am likely in for the day... Anyway I felt like I was putting on a costume. 1) wear clothes that are just so small.... 2) wear eye liner etc..  mean I am at home today literally working at computer. So anyway - with no further ado.. I bring you BadA$$ sue with a message of peace. Oh and today I am in solidarity with @Crayola64we are not eating mindle

The Outfit in the Closet

Do we all have the thin outfit or outfits? I had a dream.. and it was small in the stream of big dreams, but to me it was huge. In OA when I was 25 I went from 246.25 to 145... For my sister's wedding I could pick out any dress I wanted. I wore a glorious purple dress. Well... I have about 5 pounds to reach that 145 goal... and I put the dress on yesterday. Not sure where I am going in it - but I almost have everything in the closet that I put away for the illusive date when I got thin again. So

Surgery Prep, Email, and New Food Plan

So I am prepping for surgery and want to be as healthy as possible. One of my struggles is eating too many veggies and gas. I figure this is a good time to try and cut back! So starting tomorrow for each lunch and dinner I will commit to one veggie portion. Not a salad and veggie, not nibbling before hand. No need to I can always eat between meals - have a yogurt, water, soda, tea, or a veggie. I feel like I eat so much at meals because I don;t want to feel deprived and think I will be hungry. I

Sue's Muffin Review

OK So they were ok - by no means were the muffins (see prior blog entry) the same as Jordan Marsh Muffins circa 1970 (and 250 calories each, according to the recipe I posted in My Fitness Pal. I made the recipe using Emily Bites muffin recipes - based with oatmeal. I swapped out the sugar for Truvia baking Blend and they landed at about 80 calories.  I took 2 frozen muffins out of freezer into fridge last night, popped them in micro for about a minute and had them with coffee. A lite breakfast -

Sue Wore A Dress

So one of my favorite stores is Dress Barn... I grew up in a family that would only shop in Bloomingdales.. so this is quite a controversial move.. but I just love the dresses and clothes that I think thin people wear!!! I have a pair of their Signature Fit shorts on now   So I picked out a ridiculous dress, in a ridiculous size... and wore it to see my client in Houston yesterday.   So without further ado....

So Should I cut my hair?

So most of my life I had short hair. You jumped in the shower and wham it was so fun - afterwards you juts put gel in it - and were ready to go.... Photo below -I was about 30 or so ..not sure - after OA at about 140-150 lbs.... x Photo of me now - so can I cut my hair????  The idea is to do one hair cu or the other - anything in between is still alot of work and will drive me crazy on golf course and at gym.... I use ponytail on golf course and at gym with my long hair. It is naturall

Shopping in the Upstairs Closet

Merry Christmas! Happy Hannukah   Warning.. It's a blog - It rambles and weaves.... Thanks for reading... Sorry if I am boring... or redundant. But being thinner is a BIG DEAL!   Work up this morning - and my house is a mess and my cold still lingers. Going to start back at gym Tuesday - so decided to stay lazy. Anyhow not sure why but off I went to tackle the thing that I did not have to do - the upstairs closet. (Next up is cleaning house before Xmas party at sisters...) An

OK Gang - well up early and did a Beach Body workout (Day 6 or so of Obsession - I don't do them straight - but it was leg day)>.

He leaves early Tuesday.    So Mom died March 5 - and I was not

Plastic Surgery

Warning Controversial Posts - As I imagine some of you are against surgery....So you may want to skip this one....   Hi Guys - We' ll for years I have been thinking of getting plastic surgery on my breasts. After losing 100 lbs in Overeater's Anonymous I had a tummy tuck (abdomnioplasty) and thigh skin removed etc (lipectomy) but skipped the breasts. The Abdomen surgery tightened the muscle and removed a ton of excess skin. The thigh = left a pretty big scar, but also got rid of extra

Orange Theory Weight Loss Challenge

So On JC I have lost  a lot of weight -and am very grateful.. However - I decided to finish strong... or transition to maintenance strong...  Sol today i got weighed in at the gym for my OT Weight Loss challenge - supposedly 6 weeks but officially starts Monday - so it's a bit longer. So weight was 154.4 I think (with sneakers). We were told to wear a tight outfit. So I sort of liked working out in the outfit... Anyway I am amazed that I am this thin (in clothes) and I know I don't hav

One Clean Week for the Bee

Note:***I will keep this blog entry for one week and add to it. If I binge - I will post it here no matter what!! So let's get through this week - with my plan in tact.... my heart in tact...   Saturday 9/30/17 9AM Hi Guys - Today i go for my weigh in - I will definitely be up. Last week went pretty well - but Thursday was a night of binging. There's no way that is allowed for on my plan or way of life. For me it is a terrible sign that I may spin out of control and gain the weigh

New year 2018 Resolutions & Accoutnability

So it occurred to me that one of my goals for the New year's challenge is to drink 1/2 my body weight in ounces of water a day. I recently listened to a podcast on losing weight and they were saying big huge goals dont really work for weight loss or to make significant changes.  So do goals that support the longer term gola. So I guess my goal is to be healthier and reduce bloat and whatever else water does for you..... also 8 glasses a day today does not seem achievable... so thought I would bl

New Photo - Just another Day

Hey everyone - just a low key Saturday - Sure I walked 12 miles  that was a tad strange but it was fun...  (...LOL). And wanted to post a picture to say it's not just a normal day. Normal for me was gaining weight, being heavy and wishing I could go on a diet. So just checking in - and pretty sure people are sick of all my diatribes on the forum posts. I figure this is my section.. so I can be as vain or boring as I want here .No? Anyway - Off I go to JC today, Trying to not buy expensive entree

New outfits - New Body - Still So new to Me?

Should I be used to this? Went away this weekend to my cousins graduation and made a mad dash to Chicos to find a white t-shirt to put with Black pants.. But alas I bought a ton of stuff. First off - I remember when I could not fit into Chicos. Did you know they have a size 00? say What? (I had 00 jeans on...) Anyway I purchased a bunch of clothes in size 0. Wow... So if you have not shopped Chico's size 0 is not a true size 0... it's more like a Size 6 or on the smaller side of a size 8.
