That's 44 Sticks Of Butter!

Monday, September 28, 2009

I've lost 11 pounds so far since starting this journey 2 weeks ago.
And because 1 lb. is equal to 4 sticks of butter, I've lost an equivalent of 44 sticks of butter. That always sounds far more impressive.
Realistically, I've lost about 44 sticks of water, but still.
The food part hasn't been very tough at all. There was one moment though, when I drove by Ford's Burgers and craved a banana milkshake (my cryptonite). That feeling stayed with me for maybe 10 minutes. No biggie.
Exercise has been a problem. I still do not have the energy or drive to do anything physical. At least on a regular basis.
My goal for October is to walk, run or bike 100 miles. Think I can do it? Wish me luck! :)

    Yep - that sounds good doesn't it? I love your perspective.

    Do you watch Smallville? Use your "super speed" to get those miles done - you CAN do it.

    You can do it! Keeping an exercise diary is just as important as keeping a food diet. There are many days in my exercise diary that I had all of the excuses and none of the energy to get my workout in, but did. To see it in writing is a subtle high-five to yourself!

    I giggled when I read this. One of my good friends and I always use a tangible item to compare with our loss. For example, when I first lost 15 lbs, I was complaining that it wasn't very much and she said, "it's a bag of cat food from your thighs." Having that 'visual' not only made me laugh but put it in perspective.

    Congratulations! I started about 6 weeks ago. I have a very very long way to go… I don’t even like writing it publicly… I was very sedentary. I don’t know what your capabilities are, but please, do not over do it. I can see a difference in myself and I started out by only exercising 3 times a week at Curves. I can do more now and can increase the intensity and number of days I go. Definitely GO FOR IT, but, listen to your body so you don’t hurt yourself. -A
