Two weeks in and 5 lbs down

Friday, September 07, 2007

I weighed myself on Wednesday and was 5 lbs down from my starting weight. The first week, I only lost 1.4 lbs but this past week, I lost 3.6 lbs. I was kind of bummed because I weighed myself when I first woke up and it said I lost 4.2 lbs, but then I used the restroom and weighed myself again, thinking it would be lower, but it wasn't. It said 296 even, meaning I only lost 3.6 lbs. I decided to use the smallest weightloss, but know for next week to only weigh myself once and leave it at that.

So far this week I have done well. I was suppose to start strength training today but got real busy so I didn't. But I did get in 40 minutes of walking. I would have done more but since we were at the park, my walking buddy and I decided to let the kids play so instead of doing laps around the park, it took 20 minutes to walk there and 20 minutes to walk back. Not too bad. Better than nothing I guess. Hopefully I can make it up tomorrow. We'll see! It really sucks that kids decide how long we can walk. But oh well.

I ate outside my calorie range today. I was in my calorie range until 11:30pm. I started craving brownies really bad and I had heartburn so I wanted milk. So I ate a brownie and had a cup of vanilla flavored organic soymilk. It put me quite a bi over my limit, but that's ok. I will make it up tomorrow. No big deal really. Tomorrow I have a little over 1200 calories scheduled. If I don't eat anything extra, I should be fine.

I wouldn't have eaten the brownie and milk if I had just gone to bed but I needed to take my shower tonight so I had to stay up for a while longer. And Ta-Da here I am. Still awake.

But I am about to go to bed because I have to get up early to take my son to the doctors, so I guess I should head to bed now. It's just so hard because this site is so addicting. However, if it wasn't for this site, I wouldn't be 5 lbs lighter!

Go me!

My first blog

Wednesday, August 29, 2007

This is my very first blog and the end of my first week. I think I have done very well. Of course, my calorie intake wasn't great, but like I said, it's my first week. I weigh myself in the morning and get to find out if I have lost any weight since I started walking nightly and watching what I eat. I am anxious. It is taking everything inside me to stop myself from going in there and weighing myself right now, at 9:33pm. I keep telling myself that if I do, it will be wrong because it's the end of the day and I am totally full of water.

I totally passed the eight 8 oz cups of water today. I think I am on my 11th or 12th cup already. My goal is to drink 8 cups, but I would be most happy with a full gallon. I figure, the more water I drink, the better. I drank a cup of kool-aid with my dinner tonight and am trying to count the calories for that, but it's difficult. Oh well. I'll figure out how to count it and add it later.

I have gone over my calorie intake by a couple of hundred to eight hundred, but I'm not trippin over it. My calorie intake will drop as soon as I really start to focus on my calorie intake, which I believe will be in stage 2. I have one more week to go until stage two, unless I decide to go another round in stage 1 which part of me thinks might be the best choice, but we'll see when that time comes.

I am working on focusing on the now and not the later so I can set small goals and reach them in order to reach my biggest goal: to be a healthy weight. Preferably 135 lbs, but right now, I am focused on weighing 290.

Wish me luck! Tomorrow is my first Weigh-In day!

    Good luck! I sometimes weigh myself before bed, knowing that it will be about 3 pounds more then it will the next morning. So sometimes when I know ive done well, I get excited and weigh before bed to see how much it is and then take away 3 to see if it looks like ive lost that day. Its retarded, but hey, im a scale-aholic. LOL
