Week 2

Well I didn't quite meet my goal this week, but I still lost weight, and that's what I'm aiming no discouragement here :-)

Last week: 226.5
Today: 224
Total loss: 6.5lbs :-)

It's going slowly, but it's still going!

I need to be exercising more, and want to be...time seems to get away from me now that it gets dark so damn early. I hope to be better with that. Even it if means taking out the WiiFit during Aly's nap or getting up earlier in the morning. I know the weight loss will be even better once I'm a lot more active!

I think I also need to push my post dinner snack back to no later than 8pm. It has been about 9pm because of Aly's bedtime, but I need to work on that.

Goal for next week: 2lbs (It's Thanksgiving I'm aiming low! LOL)

Until next week....

Still on the wagon ;-)

It's been a really good week :-) The Alli seems to be doing what it says it does (including some of the kind of gross stuff...but it's all still good LOL)

So here goes!
Last week: 230.5
This morning: 226.5 :-D

4lbs down in one week! At this rate, I'll be skinny by Christmas ;-) hehehehe

Really though, the first few days I tested the pill and ate pretty shitty...and regretted it! LOL The last few days I've been eating really well. Snacking on low fat things like fruit and pretzels instead of sweets. Eating good meals. I feel really good!

I've been trying to get out and walk every day, but I've been slacking in that area. I think I need to make it part of our schedule and just go out every day at 11:30am or something along those lines. That would actually work pretty well I think since I could walk for 30 min and still be back for lunch time :-)

So week one was great! Hoping for even better in week 2! My goal for next week is 3lbs :-)

Beginning again...

Okay...I'm officially fed up :-) BUT, now I have some goals...and motivation ;-)

June 18th, 2011 is only about 7 months away. What day is that, you might ask? Well, after 5 years, Brandon and I are finally having a wedding :-) As it stands right now, I don't want a camera pointed anywhere near me...SO there's the motivation ;-)

Weighed this morning (after breakfast because I forgot lol): 230.5lbs
I want to be at most, 170 by next June. Which gives me 7months to lose 60lbs. Doable? I sure hope so! (160 would be preferable, but I may adjust as I

Thanks to a good friend, I will also have the help of Alli (begun today). For those who don't know, Alli is a pill that helps to block the absorption of some of the fat you consume. If you consume too much fat, Alli will want to get rid of it...leaving you to run for the bathroom (from what I've read lol) So basically you're forced to eat less fat and fewer calories.

My other goal is to walk at LEAST 30min a day. I began the couch to 5k training program a few weeks ago and I was doing okay, but my stamina is pretty bad and I was having some major shin splint pain. So for at least a few weeks I'm going to build my stamina by walking (and pushing a 30lb toddler in a stroller lol) and hopefully I can get back to the couch to 5k because I really liked it, it just hurt too much...and not in a good way.

I also have a daily food journal so I can keep track of everything I'm eating. I won't bore you all with my daily food intake, because no one really wants to read that LOL I think my big goal is to work on portion control. I don't think I eat bad things, I just think I eat too much. SO, to trick myself, I'll be eating out of smaller dishes, thinking I'm eating just as much as before. I know it sounds weird...but apparently it works LOL

SO...Here we go. No turning back this time...I refuse to be fat and nasty come June!

Thank you everyone for your support! I don't know if I'll update this daily, but at least weekly. I think I'll do a Sunday weigh-in each week.
