A little at a time

Well, it's been a week now that Bob and I have been going to the gym and working out. I have lost only 3 pounds but I'm not discouraged by that. It would be awesome if we could loose weight as easily as it's put onto our bodies but we all know it's not.

Test results are in..........

The colonoscopy test result are in. Doc says everything is A-ok and to follow up in 3 years. I'm happy with that!!

Feeling like a Mack truck has run over me today. Bob and I had our second workout at the gym lastnight and I discovered that I love the rowing machine!! I refuse to weigh in until mid next week. I'll weigh in once a week just like they do on Biggest Loser. It feels good to be sore though. At least I know I'm doing something good for myself.

Finally getting serious

Things have been happening around here that have been dragging me down. After many serious conversations and actions being taken, I feel life is getting back on track in a positive move forward. Life just gets you down sometimes when it throws a curve ball your way and you just have to make up your mind how you're going to deal with those curves. I feel the right choices have been made and that things here will turn around and start looking up again.

Part of things that are changing, is that Bob & I have decided to do more things together and get out of the rut that we have allowed ourselves to get into. The first decision made was to join a gym together and work as a team in getting healthy again. This is the place we joined called Prince George's Sports and Learning Complex.

We started our membership today and had a great time working out and sweating together. It feels great to be back into working out and this time I'm not alone doing it. We will not only be losing weight together, but we are on the right track to becoming a better team and building up our relationship. We may also start volunteering somewhere once a week together. I may even take a Spanish class. That would help me out with my job since there are several Hispanics where I work as employees and customers. I stepped onto the scales in the gym today (fully clothed in my workout stuff and shoes) and I about fainted on the spot. It said I was 200 pounds!!!!! My Ultimate goal is to get to 150 pounds. If I make that then I'll see how I look and feel as to whether or not I go down to 140 pounds. I want something that I know in my mind is an obtainable goal. Rather than sit here and be depressed over how fat I allowed myself to become, I'm going to look at it as I'm going to save my life and get healthy. I'll post a photo of us now and then again after we have lost a few pounds. I'm looking forward to starting over again and in a positive way.

Bob & I now...................

All is well

My procedure went very well. They found and removed 3 polyps and sent them for biopsy. the doctor said all looks well so I'm not worried. The worst part is preparing for the procedure the night before. I lost 5 pounds over night!! Anyone that would go to that sort of length to loose weight is absolutely crazy!!

I have to call the doc in a week for the results and then I'll post again.

Up coming "event"

I suppose calling this an event isn't the right thing to do. Procedure is more like it. Two years ago, I had my 1st colonoscopy and they found 2 polups that they removed and they turned out to be benine. In 1996 my Mother was diaognosed with colon cancer. She had surgery in January of 1997 and has been cancer free ever since. I was told to have one every year, but I am now 2 years behind in doing so. On February 12th., I'll be having my colonoscopy. I'm sure they will find something but I'm also sure whatever they find won't be a big deal. I'll post afterward to let you know how it turned out.

Super Bowl humor

Sorry Bob, but you know it's funny too.
