5 more days until my second weight in. I have seen some more changes in my body but not sure about what yet. I just know some of the clothes I wore like a glove fit me much better now. I know that I have a necklace I wouldn’t wear because it was just to tight and I was able to wear it to Mike’s Court of Honor and it didn’t bug me.
It is still a challenge to eat everything right. I am still drawn to chocolate after a meal. I still like my meat, skin and all. I won’t give up my breakfast cereal though have been watching the labels much more. I love milk and will drink at least 2 cups a day sometimes 3. But…..I have learned portion control. I eat one piece of candy (and not all the time sometimes I’m able to tell my stomach my brain in in charge), I eat my meat but a deck of cards size instead of a full steak. The chicken skin, well I’m still not great at that but I do now just eat the piece right on the top, not the full skin. Milk, well it’s good for a person and we are drinking 1% so that won’t change either. I know, sometime down the future I’ll look back and think, why’d I say I won’t change these thing. But for now with so much I am changing I need to keep a few things the same.
I went for a walk last night. I’m figuring about a mile in 20 minutes so not bad especially since I was in winter gear. I wore holes in both my socks because they slipped and slided around in my boots and I have a sore on the ankle where the tongue was but tonight I’m going again, adding about a 1/4 of a mile and a huge hill and will either still wear my boots but wear better socks and tie them tight or with luck it’ll be a bit warmer then something below zero but I won’t bet it tonight, maybe next week and I can wear my sneakers. Today is another day with Jillian level 2. My arms hurt so bad yesterday from Tuesday I didn’t do that work out today their better so will try it again.
So that’s my week so far. I’m learning, trying hard and making progress, just very slowly. I don’t know how some of you can loss 20 lbs a month or more but maybe your will power is better, maybe …well I don’t know. I’m figuring it’s a life style change and it won’t be quick but it will be forever. Something is better then nothing.
Take care all my inspirations, all my helpers, all my supporters. I so appreciate all the help you are giving me. Have a blessed day today!!
