May Day! May Day!

Happy May Day!

It's almost time to break out the bathing suits for those of us who have struggled through a long cold snowy winter. Spring has finally sprung here in the Northeast and my itchy, watery eyes and non-stop sneezing fits prove that things are bloomin' and pollen is flying everywhere.

I've been dancing around the 150 pound mark but haven't been able to break through to the 140s yet. "They" say that the last 10 pounds are the hardest to lose but I disagree. Every single pound lost is hard and takes effort but it is worth it. I managed to gain 1.3 pounds this week but I'm used to the roller coaster by now and know that it's just how my body fluctuates. I generally have a few good weeks of losses and then a gain.

I'm planning on joining a couple of challenges to keep me motivated and hopefully help me reach my goal this month or next. I'm a very slow loser but I'm getting there, slowly but surely. As soon as I get all the challenge details I'll let you know all about it.

Have a great May Day!


  1. Happy May Day! I love your'll get there!

  2. 150 is great!!! That is my goal. I am about 15 lbs away. After that, if I can break into the 140's that would be awesome but we will see how it goes. Yes, i am in the northeast too and I am welcoming spring, even though all this rain is awful!! Keep up the good work.


  3. Belated happy May Day! I just figured out today that it took me 12 months to lose 85 pounds and 6 months to lose the last 15. You're right: ALL of them are hard...but they're also possible with an attitude like yours!

  4. I think I am going to do my 100 days of summer challenge again this summer - would you join again?

    I am 3 pounds from the 150's - I can almost taste it! :D
