I'm down another 1.8 this week! Can't complain at all since I haven't really been doing much in the way of exercise. I've just been sticking to my calories and that's it!
I go back to my doctor today for a follow up visit and the last time I was there I weighed around 242 and now I'm at 225... down 17 pounds in about 3 months. Not bad... not where I'd like to be, but not bad at all.
I think my biggest issue currently is getting exercise. I'm not really too comfortable in going out at 5 in the morning right now because it's pitch black. It doesn't get lighter out until around 630 or so and by that time I can't walk 45 minutes b/c that would make me late for work!
Same thing for when I get home... I don't get home til around 6pm and then we eat dinner. By the time we're done it's getting dark and again I don't want to be out running/walking when it's pitch black. I would join a gym, but I don't have the funds right now.
I'm going to ask for just straight old cash for Christmas and my B-day this year in the hopes of being able to buy a decent elliptical or a recumbent bike. I could do them while I watch tv either first thing in the morning, after dinner, or heck... why not do both?!?
I'm also thinking about asking my doctor about a weight management program that's offered through Christiana Hospital. They have what looks like a pretty good program. They have an exercise facility and it looks like they offer nutrition classes and such. We'll see how it goes!
Only about 3 weeks until I start my vacation and I get to see my sister, my mom and my dad. My sister has been totally kicking a$$... she's lost like 50+ pounds! Can't wait to see them all! I'm thinking this year's eating will be different than the past years. When they're here it's usually time to loosen up and return to my gluttonous self. But this year I feel will be different. My sister's losing weight, and my dad is as well so I'm hoping that we make some smarter choices in what we eat. I'm not saying that I'm not going to get a nice greasy cheesesteak while there here, I'm just saying that I'm not going to eat the cheesesteak, an order of cheese fries, and a large coke. (Haven't had a soda in 25 weeks!!!)
Best of luck to you all, and keep on losing!!
