I made through Week 1 and am well on my to Week 2. I lost 1 pound. That’s it. I was devastated at first because in my mind, I worked pretty hard so far. When I spoke to my Mom she reminded me that a box of butter was a pound. When I thought about it that way, I was happier. One pound is more than none and better than gaining, right? I am not giving up, this is my time.
This week, I cut back even more on my portions and I stayed satisfied. In fact, at times, I wasn’t hungry at meal time. I am starting to love greek yogurt so very much. I need to eat more fruit but it seems like my favorites are never ripe this time of year. I tried to eat a can of fruit cocktail and let me just say it was not a pleasant experience.
I started using Just Dance on Wii just about everyday and I love it! It is a fun way to get moving and burn calories. There is even an exercise mode that keeps track of calories burned. I would love to buy more of them.
I will keep on trucking and focus more on eating fruits and veggies.
I started upping the incline on the treadmill and the resistance on the bike too.
Stay tuned! I will continue posting about my journey to losing weight.
