10 Pounds!

So, I have been going to the gym for an hour to an hour and half every morning after dropping T. off at school. It has been exactly two months and I had my measurements completed again. I lost 10 lbs! and Two inches from my waist! I am excited by the progress, but I am not celebrating yet. I have 60 pounds to lose. I have a long way to go and am in no hurry to do it. I am more concerned about being healthy and strong. I have built endurance up so much so that I can be on the elliptical for 30 minutes! When I first climbed on, I only achieved 3 minutes. Thankfully, I really do love working out and sweating. I know for many woman they work out and somehow avoid sweating, but I can’t imagine they achieve much success in their fitness goals. I like it when I am dripping with sweat.
I have to wear a belt to keep my jeans from falling down. Uncomfortable, but so worth the trade off.
I also hit another milestone. I can wear high heels again!! I haven’t been able to wear this type of shoe in years. Especially in the last year since my twisted ankle in November of 2011. I feel quite confident in them and that is really nice for a change. I purchased three pairs as soon as I realized I could walk in them. Yay, for sales. Two pairs are like hiking boots, the heels are clubs and the soles are rubber with boot treads. The other pair are summer sandals with a wedge heel. I love them and they are very comfortable. Casual, not dressy.
