I lost 1.5 lbs this week!
Isn't it amazing how much effort goes into losing weight? Mercy, its time and energy that I thought I would never find. Some how I have managed to stay on track in my weight loss in spite of stupid mistakes Ive made along the way.
Today marks the end of the third month of dieting for me. As of this morning I have lost a total of 27 pounds. My goal was to lose 50 pounds by the 7th of July, six months after I began. I am 2 pounds ahead of the game. I have lost 2 dress sizes! I have done this by counting calories only. I haven't drank my 8 glasses of water like I should nor have I done any added exercise.
So guess what? Its now time to work on the next step; exercise. The next three months I am going to make time to exercise and make it a habit like counting calories. It's baby steps the whole way. I knew when I started this that there would be no rushing into anything. I have 100 pounds to lose and I've given myself 2 years to lose it if need be.
Now Im dreaming of all the things that will be better this summer. I'll be able to stand the heat just a little better. I'll be able to walk a little further with the kids. Hopefully my back wont bother me so badly. On and on the list goes. Im excited about the changes that weight loss will mean in my life. If I stay focused on that it's not so hard to turn down all the good food!
Nothing tastes as good as thin feels.
So how did you do this week?
