I've been doing fairly week for the few weeks since starting metformin. I'm down 5 pounds, which for some people not a bit deal- but honestly 5 pounds in 3 weeks is practically a record for me. I have been eating fairly well... i could do better. I have been relatively active- i could do better.
My vacation is 26 days away.
I need to do better!
I am in between sizes at the moment... I want so much to be down to the smaller size before I leave April 6th. I have a plethora of vacation clothes that I can wear... just one size down. or more like half a size.
Is this possible?
I have never had a normal weight loss... it would take me easily 3+ months to drop a size. now that my body is actually losing more normally, i wonder... is this possible?
First step: Upping the activity. Now that we have daylight in the evenings (YIPPPEEE!) I don't anticipate this being a problem
Second step: get back to the ST! lean muscles is what we want!
Third step: clean up the eating just a bit... which I anticipate will happen once I increase the activity, it is usually pretty natural for me.
By my calculations- a two pound a week loss (which is HIGH for me- but maybe possible with this metformin?) will have me in onderland by my birthday in May. my 33rd birthday. wouldn't that be a rocking birthday gift to myself?!?!
