I'm SO happy that the scales are going down and my desire to eat healthfully and moderately and exercise faithfully are increasing daily. I've lost 3.2#'s in the last 3 weeks and I'm SO tickled! One of my SparkFriends suggested drawing a 'paper graph' and hanging it on the fridge. I have to say that it's QUITE motivating to see that line going in the right direction!
Last night I put away all my fall/winter/spring stuff and took out my summer clothes. I was DREADING trying on stuff since I'd gained since last summer; however, it wasn't as painful as I was thinking. I still have many capris and shorts that fit! WHEW! There are some favorites that are too tight--but it's just motivating me further to get these pounds off!
THANK YOU for all your support! Maybe by my 2 year SparkVersary, I will be down a couple more pounds. Right now my BMI is 25.7. Four more pounds to be in the normal BMI again. I'd REALLY like to do that before July 12th which is 22 days away. Do you think that's reasonable? 4 pounds in 3 weeks? I think I'll go for it!
Just so I'll NEVER forget!
Have a GREAT day
P.S. I've decided that one of my trigger foods is ice cream so I'm trying to keep it out of the house. However, I LOVE McDonald's ice cream cones at only 150 calories and 4 grams of fat, and will probably indulge once a week. Well, yesterday I tried their 'dipped in chocolate' cones, and figured it wouldn't add that much to the calories--our McD's didn't have the nutritional info on it yet. I came home and discovered that the LITTLE bit of chocolate added a WHOPPING 180 calories to the cone! Live and learn--I opt for the plain vanilla and saving all those calories!
