I am 218 even, and need to start thinking of 220 as the past. So onward to new goals. At 216 I will hit 50 lost on SP. I was 215 in 1994 @ 20 years of age. Can't ask for much more than to be lighter than you were at 20, but I will. At 211 I hit 150 lbs total lost. Then I have a goal of 204. This one was when I was coming up with a goal weight. See, I really had no idea, so I started multiplying my height (68") by lbs per inch.. 68 X 3 lbs per inch = 204..lol.. I just want a goal every few lbs, and the last one is 199.. Onederland. I hope to reach all of these goals by the end of summer, and then set new ones for 199 -172.
I got up early and did almost 2 hours. Yesterday's 90 minute walk was more like 80, and guilt made me walk farther, around 6.5 miles. I kind of like the 3 eggs, and 1 Tbsp of butter for breakfast. Eating 4 eggs, and 2 Tbsp. butter some days seemed like I was force feeding myself. I was surpised my 1/2 a banan lasted quite well from yesterday. I was worried it would turn brown like apples do. Today I am having 2 ozs of cheese for a snack. I gained no weight by eating 2 ozs no salt peanuts yesterday, so I am happy. The peanuts said 0 NA, but tasted okay, not bland. I will say that 2 ozs of peanuts is a lot to eat at one time. Took me 30 minutes of munching.
I am worried a bit about having peanuts, fruit, and cheese in the same week, but hoping by sticking to 40 net carbs I have no issues. My mind is screaming " they are bad!", but in my heart I know that these aren't carbs I should be afraid of. They may slow my weight loss a bit, but I should continue to lose. I will be shifting to Pre-Maintenance soon, and need to figure out a wider variety of good carbs to eat. Plus hoping to get to 50 net carbs eventually.
Today, I have to go to the Amish meat mart. The lady there has gout, and told me her foot is broken from it. I feel awkward with her in a cast, on crutches, and I have had no issues in 2 months almost. She is one of the few people I know who have gout, and discuss it with, and I can't be happy about my good fortune, while she is crippled.
Today is going to be 70 and sunny, so I am gonna go shoot some hoops by myself, and tonight there is no Biggest Loser, so I am lost..lol
Hope everyone has a wonderful day!
