First setback

Well, I weighed myself this morning at Winn-Dixie, and I'm ashamed to report that since my last post (14 days ago), I've only lost 1 more pound. While that's a total of 21 pounds, that's not nearly as much as it should be. I really only have myself to blame. Adipex has given me a great jump start and a chance to make some serious changes, and I haven't taken full advantage. I haven't worked out since coming back home from my Denver trip, I'm still drinking more beer than I should (there's been a lot of stress lately), and I'm not always making the right food choices.

So, if I ever want to fit back into the 14's and 12's I have in my closet, I'd better get my ass in gear (literally). Today is day 1 of workout blast! My goal is to exercise a minimum of 30 minutes every day. Walking, jumping rope, rollerblading, the Total Gym—these are all things at my disposal. Add to that a treadmill at Mary's house and a swimming pool down the road, and there's NO EXCUSE. I meet with Ivonne again in a week, and while it is a week earlier that it should be since she's out of the office, I still need to show more than a 1-pound loss since my last visit.

Ok, off I go—let's see if I can shed at least 3 more pounds before next week. That would mean about 4 pounds, which Ivonne will tell me is not nearly enough, but if I can show that I've re-committed myself, hopefully she'll renew my prescription.

Wish me luck!
