How did I let it happen? How did I wake up one day to find myself at 286 pounds and completely miserable in my own body? It happened, I can't blame anyone but me. And only I can fix it. So I am. On December 23, 2009 I had Lap-Band Surgery with Dr. John Marsden. I'm down 100 pounds so far with about 25 to go.

Better and better

I worked out again last night, and this time I went 12 minutes on the elliptical! I didn't run as much on the treadmill but did a higher incline and walked for a longer period of time. Then more bike and more stretching and sit ups/leg lifts. I felt pretty good about it all.

Thank you all so much for the words of encouragement. They mean so much to me! I am having an easier time resisting the foods that aren't as good for me right now too. I won't say "bad foods" because nothing is supposed to be bad, as long as it is in moderation, right?! Since I'm having trouble with moderation right now, I'm choosing to abstain from some things while I'm working this challenge.

Have a great day everybody!!


  1. I love just setting the treadmill to the highest incline and walking it for an hour! it burns a ton of calories and I feel very acomplished afterward. So incline is awesome in my book!

    Great Job!

  2. That's awesome, Debi! I know this is so out of your wheelhouse and to me, that's what makes it so great. You rule, sister!

  3. Great job Debi! Sounds like you have a good game plan going there.

  4. Great job Debi! Incline is hardcore.

  5. You are doing great. I so need to get back to exercise. I'm more of a walker and incline the treadmill too. It's such a sweat.

  6. Man...I am impressed that you run on the treadmill. Have a said that before. I am an incline kinda gal too!! You are doing great. Your head is in the right place. Keep it up!
