The buttons and the pins and the loud fanfare...

Ok - so I apparently SUCK as an NKOTB fan because I completely forgot (UNTIL today) that they were on the Today show on Friday. Totally forgot to set the DVR and everything. I think this diet is rotting my brain. Anyway, watched it on YouTube (what did we do before YT?) and I have to say - when they did "Tonight", I became a giddy, gawky teenager again. Donnie hasn't missed a beat. I keep waiting for him to put on some overalls and wear them down with no shirt. I also would pay good money to see Jordan do "Baby I Believe in You" with the white shirt (unbuttoned - remember that?) and the wind blowing on him. Oh yea...wait - Jon is my favorite. Stick to Jon...

Back to reality. I've been a bad blogger and I apologize. I've been so swamped lately at work and with this new diet, working out, trying to be positive and organized, blah blah blah.

So, I'm pretty pissed off about this week? I worked out FOUR days, at least an hour each time - doing treadmill (fast pace), rowing machine, weights, cycling, you name it. Watched my points and food and I did not lose ANYTHING. I leave in about 15 minutes to weigh-in and there is no hope for me dropping two pounds before 10. So, I am PISSED. I feel like one of those people on the Biggest Loser that does everything they can and doesn't lose but 1 pound. Heck, though. I'd take the pound right now. Happily. Nothing. Nada. Since I started, I have dropped 12.2 pounds - averaging 3 1/2 per week. This week. Nothing. And, I worked harder!

I'm sitting here in a defeated moment. I'm not giving up. I have a lot going on. Vacation is in four weeks and I will be in a wedding next year, so I need to keep working at it. Plus, I feel better. That is probably the biggest change. I actually FEEL better. I was running the other day and didn't even get winded. Can you imagine? Fat girl didn't get winded. Ha!

Alright - I have a lot more to say but I have to run. Fat camp is calling.

I promise to be better about blogging!

Can relate to the work hard don't lose weight dilemma... but remember, the scale doesn't measure everything! Like, muscle tone for example!

So be encouraged! Keep up the exercise and know that it is helping you be healthy!

(I'm currently trying to drop another 30 after the birth of my 3rd child)

We've all been there. Heck, I'm always there now that I'm over 40. It sucks. I think you're doing great and I'm proud of you. Don't give up! Kick that treadmill's ass!

Don't let one week get you down. I've been a leader for 9 years and I have only met ONE person who got to goal without ever gaining/staying even. One out of probably thousands I have seen. You are doing great, and the weight will catch up to what you are doing.

Stay strong, Ginger! I have faith in you and know you will continue to work at it--even through bad days. Hang in there! Hugs!
