Monday Mileage

 I now have 856 miles in the bank for the year.  I'll get well in to the 900 mile range, if I don't get to 1000.  That's OK.  I know I have given this my best shot and I'll walk the remaining miles in 2013.

Sunday marked the end of the second four week phase of P90X.  As of this morning, I have lost 0.4 lbs.  Some of my more alert readers might remember that just last week I had posted a gain since October 1.  I lost 2 pounds last week.  Let me rephrase that.  I lost 2 pounds THANKSGIVING WEEK!  I'm really, really hoping that means I've turned the corner with this thing and the next 5 week session will bring some much anticipated results.  I have lost 5.25 inches over my entire body.  I'm sure the slow melt is the best.  I'm OK with that.  I just want to lose no matter how slowly.  I do not want to regain one ounce.

I am not getting too excited about the loss just yet.  I don't want to create an unrealistic expectation and be disappointed yet again.  I'm tired of being disappointed.  Besides that, I really can't tell in my clothes or in photographs just yet.  I had 65MD take pictures again last night.

They are in order from top to bottom.  The very top picture is the start picture.  The middle is after 4 weeks and the bottom is after 8.  I'm just seeing microscopic differences.  I debated about even posting them.  It seems a little pointless.

I will forge ahead still.  I will know soon enough if I've truly turned the corner or just had a fluke week.  Which by the way, was fabulous!  I'll refrain from gushing about what a great family I have.  I'm counting the weeks until we are all back together again.


  1. Two pounds LOST over Thanksgiving week is awesome! I'm working at trimming off my own Tgiving gain. Also, great job with the mileage. i'm betting you'll reach 1000 by yearend.

  2. I can def see indentions more and more in the 2nd and 3rd pics around the ab area. Also, your rear looks not as big. Hehe, sounds funny to say that. Anyway, do you think losing 2 lbs on Tgiving week could be info that you need more food or more fuel to lose - losing more when eating more verses eating less???

    1. Staci,
      I thought my rear looked smaller, but decided it was the camera angle.

      That is a great insight on the food thing. I didn't exercise quite as much either. I probably need to moderate on both sides of the equation.

    2. I am not a weight loss expert at all this time around. :( However, I also know that when I lost 35 lbs 7 years ago, I would have several days of low points/calories in a row. Then I would have a day of a giant splurge (Mexican food and dessert), and the next morning I would show a HUGE loss on the scale. That always confused me, but it did it every. single. time. Sooo... no harm in trying. I guess it just shocked my metabolism and made it work overtime. Something to consider anyway!

  3. i can definately see the stomach getting tighter darlin! these are great and so beave of you to post em, i KNOW that pain/fear but it's also liberating isnt it! BRAVO!
