    Glad to see you are still doing well. Keep it up!! It is great to show people all aspects of this journey by having people who took the same main road but when down different side roads and stayed determined.

    @Newme17 I am sooo excited about this. My co-worker made me a training schedule to prepare for a 5K. I am over the moon excited about it. He told me that my journey has inspired even the “Skinny” employees to get up off their butts and workout. I just laughed. He said, that though they are small, they aren’t healthy neither and could use the inspiration.

    I hope your wrist gets better. While I was reading your post, I couldn’t help but imagine the fall and the cartoon sound. I would hold off on weights for a little too.
    Nope there are no victims here. Just strong people reclaiming their lives each and everyday.
    You had such an eventful week. Oh man, someone hit your car, police get called. I am sure you were like what else could possibly happen. Whop Whop!! PoPo knocking at the door. It’s crazy how so much can happen in a short period of time.
    The amazing thing is how we can laugh about the craziness now instead of turn to food.
    Yeah that stuff has my tummy looking like a waterfall when all is said and done.

    Lol, I use sweet sweat and a neoprene to help me sweat. I honestly have a hard time sweating to it makes my tummy pour down. That's where I hold most of my water and feel bloated.
    Since upping my cardio, the weight has been coming down. I think the key for me is equilibrium lol. That is the the key to everything. Also my diet has equaled out. I have no more than 40g of carbs with 120g of Protein. Limiting the fats a bit to no more than 20g. Also increasing my water intake by another 10 oz getting me up to 74 oz. This has been working and I see and feel the change.
    Yayy for being strong.

    I would drive to the nearest location. My gym is across the street from my job which is a 1 hour - 1 hour and a half ride on public transportation. I make it a point to head there even on my off days as they are open only Monday - Fridays 6 am - 8 pm.
    I agree with your husband. You do not have a reason to not drive across town and workout.

    @Newme17That is awesome that he is going to pull through. I feel bad for the children. That is going to be hard to get over. They will need a lot a therapy to get better. I hope that they also can come out of this stronger. It will be hard and they will have nightmares but with the right help, they can overcome this horrific hurdle.

    @Newme17 It has taken awhile for me to get used to the whole sculpting the body then losing the weight on the scale. I am just happy that changes are happening. Although they maybe slow, it has been a fun journey and I want to be strong.

    @karen_marie Thank you. I wanted to be around the 150lbs with muscle but the build of my body allows a lot more muscle. I have packed on soo much of it. My coworker who has been weight training since his early 20's says I annoy him because I can easily gain muscle but he has to struggle to gain. I advised him that while I can gain muscle easier, he burns fat extremely quickly. So we are both **** out of luck lol.
    I am sure you will be able to do more than just one pull up down the road.

    Congrats!!! I am sooo glad to hear that you are back in the gym. I cannot wait to see your progress.
    I am starting my taxes, I have claimed over $5,000 in medical expenses. Between, compression garments, protein shakes, payments on hospital stay, co-pays and therapy for my ankle which is still ongoing. I did not realize I spent much. I also wear glasses and contacts and have other medical needs. I believe it is anything that exceeds 10% of you annual income.

    @FluffyChix It is hard work but soo worth it. I am working hard to try and get rid of the stomach. My Doctor says, that's where I am holding about 15 lbs of fat. I do a stomach workout every workout. Plants, decline sit ups, mountain climbers and russian twist. They are killer and my abs be sore but soo worth it. lol

    @Newme17 I know how you feel. I use a rolling massage ball for my foot and ankle in the morning and before bed. I then stretch it while laying in bed. It seems to help loosen it up from a night of being inactive. You will get back into the routine. We all fall off at some point. The point is, to get back on track eventually.

    @Newme17 Have you tried doing stretches to get your mobility up? My ankle always creeps up on me but I use an ankle brace on heavy leg days and cardio. I also stretch it out everyday before a workout. I do a lot of mobility stretching everyday. It helps a lot. I hope you are feeling better now.
