Mandie160's Journal, 15 January 2008

Good Morning,
I am back at work today. Class was something else lastnight. My instructor kept looking at me and I didn't know why, so when she called for a 15minute break, she walked over and asked me if she knew me from somewhere. I told her that I didn't think so. She then asked me where was I employed and what highschool did I attend, I answered her and I asked her did she work anywhere else besides the college and she told me other places where she was employed. Then she asked THE QUESTION! She asked me my age! I don't know guys, I am going to have to get me some plastic surgery in order to feel good about being 35. That was the first time someone has asked me my age since I turned 35. I thought about it the entire class. This woman didn't look a day over 40 and she went on and on about how she thought that she had taught me in elementary or highschool. This was even after I told her my age! I wanted so bad to ask her her age, but I didn't want to offend her and I couldn't come up with a way to do it so I just left it alone. She made comments all during class about how old she felt. I'm telling you guys this woman looked 40 or 45 at the most....but now that I think abou it, I guess she could've been close to 50. My mother is 51 and she looks really good for her age. My mother was a very young mother.
On another note, I exercised yesterday morning and again lastnight after I got home from class. I did 30 minutes of treadmill and 30 minutes of weight and stretches lastnight. I'm really getting the hang of this exercise thing. My weight today is 187.4 but I was really wantin to see 185Lbs, but I can live with this for now. I hope by next week I will be 185 or lower. It's been two weeks and I have really been working hard on this diet.I am going to try very hard not to blow it this weekend.
Good luck everyone on your diets.
on diet Atkins  


All I can tell you is that life begins after 40. You should NEVER feel old at 35. You are still a baby! I am 42 and have never felt better in my entire life! (about most things). Hold your head up high and be proud of your 35!

Do be too upset if your weight doesn't drop faster. You may be adding muscle mass while losing fat and that could make it appear that you aren't losing anything. If you haven't done so already, start taking your measurements every week. You may see bigger drops there than on the scale and it all leads to a smaller you!! It sounds like you're doing great!

You're doing great Mandie... Sometimes the thought of turning 30 for me... isn't a pleasant thought, but other times, I realize how far I've come in life and I am so much happier now than right before I turned 20! I'm more in tune w/ myself and I'm settled in life, happy and I feel like a bottle of fine wine I guess... I just get better with age, LOL... You look beautiful so don't let that little number get you down. Take a look back and see how you feel about it then... you may realize that you are much more "pulled together" now than you were say.. 10 years ago! I think I will take turning 30 in stride and hold my head high and be proud of who I am and how old I am.

Great job Mandie! I am glad to see you back in the 180's. You weight is encouraging to me because we always seem to follow each other. That means in 2 weeks, I will be 187! I am excited. On another note, I hope life gets better at 40. I have only 2 1/2 more months to go!
