TOTAL POUNDS LOST (Season 5): 34.9

Okay...... I'm "in"

I actually found a chart I started exactly a year ago... it showed how much I lost every day for about 2 weeks and I now weigh 10 lbs more than I did when I STARTED to lose weight that time... so yeah, that is one reason I just have to do this.  And I could possibly have a wedding this year and I refuse to be the "fat" mother standing in the line.  Vain, I know.  So, I dusted off my old VHS tape (I know, a relic) of Tae-Bo with Billy Blanks... I have the routine pretty much in my head, but have to watch it to so I don't have to do any thinking... so I just blur my eyes because he and the girls that exercise with him are pretty gross to look at.. blaaaah!  I will be sore tomorrow, but it will be worth it.  On my weight chart I also include the measurement of my waist and my thighs so I can watch the inches fade as well.  Because muscle weighs more than fat and when I excercise and build more muscle I want to see something change on my chart.  There are probably better exercise tapes out there that are newer, but I hate to have to learn something new all over again.  I feel really good when I get to the point of being able to do the whole 30 minute workout without stopping and panting.  I like to go walking in the neighborhood in the mornings for a break, but I feel like tae-bo gives me a much better, all-over excercise... and I refuse to run... running breaks down knees and both my sister and mom have bad knees.  I am protecting mine.  So whatever you girls do.... keep it up and good luck!  Woooo Hooooo!

good job mom, with the tae-bo. i actually just thought about the measurement thing yesterday. how sometimes the weight doesn't mean as much as how you look. i might have to go measure myself.
