10 Lbs. Down - Tailor Time!

Posted July 1, 2009 9:55 a.m. EDT

It’s tailor time! The new suit I bought in January doesn’t fit anymore. The pants are too loose around the waist. I love this kind of problem.

Yes, I made my goal of 179 pounds this morning. I’m halfway home in the Ten Pounds Down – Ten Week Weight Loss Challenge. I’d like to credit Brian Shrader for my progress this week. Brian booked me for his Live @ Show today to talk about the program. I didn’t want to spend the whole time making excuses.

Many of you have told me that you are also trying to shed a few pounds. How are you doing? Please talk about the struggles and conquests. I saw personal trainer and registered dietitian Tara Wind at the gym yesterday. She’s ready to answer your questions.

I’ve continued an active exercise program. No major changes. My diet has been pretty consistent. I did splurge on Allen & Son barbecue in Chapel Hill on the way to the mountains last week. Talk about a great meal! Following a hearty workout I polished off a large barbecue plate and four hushpuppies.

Well, the new goal is 178 lbs. by next Wednesday. That will put me just four pounds shy of my overall goal of 174. Wish me luck and I’ll do the same!

I have a handwritten summary of my diet and exercise log. If anyone requests it I’ll be glad to post it.
