How I've Been Doing
Thursday, April 23, 2009
I'm a Community Team member now, so I'll have to update this more often. It'll probably be good for me. So, here's the deal with me right now.....
Well, I'm 147 pounds at the moment. 115 pounds gone, and 27 left to go. I've gone from a XXXL to a medium. On one hand, that feels really good. On the other hand, I'm getting tired of needing new clothes all the time! I have a little loose skin, but nothing too bad. It's mostly on my inner thighs, stomach, and breasts. (My breasts sag like I wasn't expecting them to do for another 20 years or so, though!
I've started making a big pot of soup or something similar for lunches and eat it throughout the week, instead of just grabbing a sandwich. It keeps me fuller longer. Especially something that includes a large amount of fiber. This week I've been eating a lentil and barley stew.
I think I might get a Greek salad and veggie kabob from the Persian place across the street tomorrow, though.
I got my mother using Sparkpeople. I really hope she sticks to it. She thinks I'm like this super strong person for accomplishing what I have, and that I'm a special case. I'm not special. Sparkpeople just works, that's all. She can do it! Anybody who sticks to it and doesn't give up when it gets hard can do what I've done!
