1st Goal Met - 50lbs Gone Forever!
Sunday, August 28, 2011
Today it happened, I stepped on the scale, and the numbers 299.7 blinked back at me..... HOLY COW was I excited. I've been waiting to hit this for the past couple of weeks and I am soooooo ecstatic. Meeting my first goal is so fulfilling. I will never ever see a number starting in 3 on that scale ever again. I just won't. I can't let that happen again.
I bought myself a new Vera Bradley bag as a reward (Stephanie style in Boysenberry) and I call it my 50lb bag.
I am doing well getting my protein in and I am progressing through to different foods every week. Tonight I had some turkey and chicken taco meat! It was yummy :) Some things that have been ok before aren't ok another time, but I think a lot of that is me not chewing them up enough. I have to remember that every time I put something in my mouth.
Vitamins are no big deal, I have a pill box where you can take out the am/pm for the day and I throw it in my purse as I head to work. I have a Nectar protein shake with 16 oz of non fat milk every day first thing. It helps me hit my protein mark.
Exercise is getting better as I can walk more and faster. I want to do a 5k this year. We'll see!
Happiness to everyone as you continue your own journey to a healthier you! I wish you well in your own experience!
