1 week to go !!

Saturday, March 24, 2012

1 week to go for my first weight in, and I can't wait. I have gone slightly over my calories the last 2 days but not by much. I took yesterday off from exercise to let my feet rest after Thursday's 3.5 mile walk. I really wanted to go walking yesterday in the great weather but I could barely walk. The feet are feeling much better today so I went to the gym and rode the bike for 70 minutes and burned a nice 525 calories.

I will be trying my best to work out as much as I can this next week. Putting a rush on the calorie burning for the next 7 days until my weight in. I am going to weigh in on Sunday the 1st....yes April fools day. Let's all hope that I don't feel like a fool after I get on the scale. I would be thrilled with a 15 pound loss, but that may be wishful thinking. I will be happy with 10 and a little surprised if it's less than 10.

Regardless of what number pops up on the scale, I will not be let down, not even a little bit.
Six weeks into eating better and four weeks into working out & Sparkpeople, I feel a lot better physically and mentally. It feels good to know I am sticking to it and doing really well.
I've had a couple small bumps in the road but nothing that we don't all have.

Be strong and make good choices !!!

    Way to go Tony...keep up the great work and hope it show up well on the scale but remember it isnt just what the scale says ...check out how your clothes are feeling and how much more energy you have too!

    The scale should show good numbers for you by the way you've said your eating and working out. I find a good judge of where I am is how my clothes fit and how I feel.

    15lbs a month for 4 months is a HUGE goal. I'm sure some of it will come off quickly but it may start to slow down as you loose more and more.

    Can't wait to hear how well you've done!

    its always nice to see the weight come off fast...but in the end sometimes we lose it slower but as long as its still coming off thats all that matters! good luck!

    There is absolutely no way you should feel like a fool regardless of the number that shows up! Remember that weight is just ONE symptom of a systemic problem. Look at all that you have accomplished the last month. I imagine there are all kinds of amazing changes happening within your body. The weight will come too (and the scale number might be great) but just remember the bigger we are to start with, the more variable the water weight can be. Exercise and eating clean is good for us no matter what the scale says. ...That said, I hope it's an even bigger number than you hoped for! :)

    I can relate with the sore feet!! I've been doing a lot more walking and playing DDR and the bottoms of my feet feel bruised when I walk. I've taken it a bit easier the past couple of days and my feet are feeling better.

    I agree the scale doesn't matter. It is really all about the changes you are making.. they are what count. Keep opting for healthy choices and exercising and your weight will adjust. It's not about the scale.. it's about our new healthy life!! The healthy choices you have made so far all ready discount you from being a fool no matter what the scale says April Fool's day!

    I can't say that I have noticed any difference in the clothes. All my clothes fit me good before so I don't notice. I guess if I had been wearing tight fitting clothes, then maybe I would be noticing.
