Close to 5% Loss - End of Week 5

Saturday, June 15, 2013

I am so excited, I weigh 202.2 pounds today. I am 1.4 pounds away from my 5% Challenge Goal and 2.3 pounds from hitting 199.9!

I am on my way out but wanted to quickly record what has helped me lose weight this spring.

I Sparked family members so 3 of us are doing the 5% Challenge. Great support and motivation!

Daily walk - more consistently active. Walking and going to the gym.

Staying in my calorie range most days.

Really working the weekly Living the Good Life Challenges and trying to continue them after the Challenge.

Tracking exercise and food.

Eat off smaller plates

Fitbit 7,000 steps minimum but sometimes hit 12,000

Aim for 10 PM bedtime

Drink V8 juice to keep appetite under control

Drink at least 8 glasses of water so I don't confuse thirst and hunger

Going to the YMCA

My Streaks

Nutrition Tracking Day 90
Daily Walk Day 56
No alcohol 88/90

Also great support from my Spark Friends. emoticon

Thanks for your support, you have kept me going on this journey to better health!

    Way to go! Whenever I see your tracking streak, I think back to when you first started and were determined to get into the habit of tracking, but you disliked it so much! I'm so impressed with the routine and lifestyle you've created! Keep up the great work and I'm excited for you to hit Onederland!!!

    I'm so excited for you...When I reached 200 I was so beside myself. Now if I can push on down below 190 I think I would be happier...but congrats on reaching the 5%. emoticon
