Week Twenty-Six Weigh-In Day: Six Months!

Thursday, July 03, 2014

Here I am at the 6 month mark, and still at it. Wow!

After a pretty disastrous Thursday and Saturday, I actually had a good week, and the weigh-in shows it.

This morning I weighed in at 183.8 lb for a loss of 1.8 lb this week and 33.2 lb overall since January 2.

I did two things on Sunday. First, I changed my activity level from moderately active to sedentary. I am not sedentary by any means, but I wanted to err on the side of caution and lower my calorie range. I felt I was sneaking up too high some days, and I needed to get things under control. I kept telling myself I needed fuel, and I did. It was healthy food, for the most part. It was just too much now that I've lost 33 pounds.

Second, I unhooked my nutrition and fitness trackers. In the past few weeks I've been exercising just to have that extra piece of cheese or two in the evening, and I can't be doing that any longer. I will try to stick to 1500 calories per day no matter how much exercise I do or don't do. I will let my daily calorie differential my guide.

It's been a great 6 months. I've made some positive changes to my eating habits, kept with a pretty rigorous exercise program, started getting good sleep on a regular basis, and really, I've never felt better!

Let's see what the second half of 2014 has in store!

    Congratulations on your success! Your consistent, persistent efforts are being rewarded.

    I, too, have my fitness and nutrition trackers disconnected. In this mode, I believe the assumption is that I am sedentary and like you, I am by no means sedentary. The conservative approach has worked well for me.

    Keep up the great work!

    Congratulations on your success. You are doing great, keep up the good work.

    By now you are looking better, feeling better, and it may be time to donate some of those old clothes that are too big for you now and reward yourself with something new to wear.

    You are an awesome and beautiful woman and you are doing great.

    Way to go!
