Well I weighed myself last Saturday and have lost a total of 15 lbs since Jan. 1st and 27.5 inches. So I’m doing pretty good. Oh like everyone else I wish I could lose the weight faster but I know that the 1-2 lbs a week loss is just right if I want to keep it off for the rest of my life and that is what I want to do. I am never ever going to weigh that much again.
This week I have gone though my closet and found 2 pairs of jeans, 1 sweater, 1 sweatshirt and 2 blouses that I will never fit in again. I also found 2 tanks and 1 fleece jacket that I gave to one of my daycare mom’s because she’s losing weight too just a bit larger then I am. If really feels good doing this but I can’t take to much from the closet, there’s not that much in there to begin with. I sure do hope garage sale season starts soon because I don’t want to buy anything new until I’ve reached my goal. I’m 1/3 of the way there.
I need to get out and move a bit more. This week I’ve been slow. It’s already Wednesday and I’ve exercised once and rode my bike once, not enough to call a great job yet. I did walk over 12,000 steps on Monday, 10,300 yesterday and 9800 today. I need to get back to my food journal. I’m doing okay but I do better with the help of that. Also I need to make up a weekly menu. I’ve said that before but for some reason I keep procrastination about it. Stupid, how hard can it be to take 30 minutes and work on it.
I’m doing this whole life style change by myself. No gym, no WW or anything else and I’m learning to cook and bake healthier. I figured since this is a new life style for me I might as well do it all naturally and learn from the beginning.
I love comments, encouragements, ideas, recipes, ideas…. anything that you’ve learned I’d love to be taught.
