2 Weeks In

Thursday, March 15, 2012

Well I am a little over two weeks of being completly dedicated to this diet and I am excited. I have not been disallowing myself any treats but staying under my 1500 calorie count. I have lost avg of 2lbs each week, counting this 3rd week that I will not record until Sunday.

I feel much better even though the weight is not coming off. I have been doing my 740 minutes in exercise/cardio each week and walking 5 miles per week. I walked a mile today at lunch, I still have trouble doing much more than a mile, my legs feel like jello. My goal is to be doing a 3 mile stretch by the end of April which I think can be accomplished.

I am in my last semester of school before I receive my bachelors degree emoticon so I am having a hard time between work, school, home and kids finding the time to exercise but I am determined.

I am going today to join a Gym, some student for the college I work for are joining with me. This will be fun, me being a 45 year old woman joining a gym with young adults, maybe they will motivate me.

Lovin life and lookin forward to a long healthy journey..

    emoticon You say the weight is not coming off but you have lost 2 lbs per week. 2 lbs per week is very good and is at the higher end of the recommended weekly weight lose goal. Sounds like you are doing a lot and I bet you will see your body catch up soon. I also suspect you have been replacing fat with muscle from all the exercise you are getting that will reflect on the scale as well. Just remember you are getting healthier no matter what the scale says.
