Starting week 7: Mostly according to plan
Sunday, November 11, 2012
I can't believe it's already Sunday again! It seems like the weeks are going by so fast...
Well anyway, last week went like I hoped - for the most part. I was able to get rid of the extra pounds I had gained through Halloween, and lost and extra pound as well! I honestly had hoped for 2 lbs progress, but I feel like I did really well considering I had 4 extra pounds to get rid of before I could make progress! So anyway, I'm very satisfied with the way that week 6 went.
I did have a medical concern a few days ago, possibly related to my gallbladder surgery in 2011, but I'm keeping an eye on it, and I'll head straight to the doctor if anything seems to be bad.
My energy level is honestly not getting any better, like I hoped it would. I suppose I've only lost 10 lbs, so it's not going to make much of a difference yet. I really do hope I'll see more improvement in the weeks to come.
On a side note, I realized today that I only have around 8 weeks left before I will be posting blogs from Germany. I should be leaving around January 15th if all goes according to plan...
I think it might be a challenge to keep up my diet and weight loss once I get there, but I pray I can stick to it without giving up. I will have to figure out how to diet with German food! I think most of it is the same really, as long as you don't go out to eat. I heard there will be what we call a "Farmers Market"(not sure of the German word) right around the corner from where I'm going to be staying, so it will at least be easy for me to get fresh vegetables!
So anyway, I really hope this week goes as well as last week did. Wish me luck!!
