Week 1 Weigh In

Wednesday, April 21, 2010

Well, I'm pretty happy this week. I lost 4.8 pounds! I know the first few pounds is usually water, but I'm happy to see the scale go down instead of up. I think I'll set a mini goal of 10% of my body weight. I also know that I can kick up the exercise routine by getting in some more walking instead of sitting on my duff. I think I'll have to get up a little earlier in the morning and head out for a walk before work.

4.8 pounds down.... 85.2 more to go!

    Great thinking; Who doesn't want too lose fast, but the slower the better. Wear a pedometer & it will help you keep up with your steps. Every 2000 steps equal a mile. I clip mine on my shoe & just make sure I don's shake my foot when I am sitting.

    Nice first week!! Looks like you and I started about the same weight.

I don't do any formal exercise, I just manage my calories with the nutrition tracker. I weigh less now than I have in 25 years. You CAN lose the weight if you want. Good luck to you!

Day 2

Thursday, April 15, 2010

Well, I'm off to a decent start. Today is day 2 of watching what I eat and so far it hasn't been bad. I've actually been looking for stuff to try and make sure I get all my food in. I'm really determined this time to make a change. A change for good this time, not a change for a few weeks only to revert to the same behavior that got me here to begin with. I have the MS walk this weekend so I'll get my exercise in for Saturday. 3 miles is gonna be a challenge. I haven't walked that far in a long time. Just hope that my knee holds out!

Let's roll!! emoticon
