Weekly Weight Loss Check In 8-22


I'm late this week. Due to Hurricane/Tropical Storm Fay, I've had other things on my mind lately! LOL

Well, we're at a stand still right now. Walking was OUT this week with the wind & rain, but I managed to remain at 148!! Yay me!! Stress makes me eat, so I did well there. AND....I haven't had one salad! Been eating lots of veggies, but no salad. The dressing kills me. I LOVElovelove Bleu Cheese! Highest in carbs & calories! I have been eating more fruit, too. I'd forgotten how much I like fruit. Guess I stopped eating it when we cut back on expenses, fruit can be a premium.

Back to the regular routine next week.

Fay has passed us without much damage or rain. Now it's mostly wind. She is headed out into the Gulf to restrengthen - geez! Thanks for all your prayers during this storm, they worked!!!

Will check back in next Wednesday with another update. Thanks so very much to all my friends for the encouragement!!!

Weekly Weight Loss 8-16-08

Well, last week I went back to my diet / exercise plan from a year ago. I weighed 155 pounds on Wednesday the 6th(Weigh in Wednesday). On the 13th, I weighed in at 148! Good start.

I am cutting back on my carbs. I went from eating whatever & whenever the hell I wanted to to 180 carbs per day, with 150 being optimal. It's not much, doesn't leave room for snacks. Sigh...but it's necessary.

I plan to drop to about 130 pounds by November. About 2 pounds a week.

I walk my street on Mon., Wed. and Fridays. As I get back into shape, I'll walk further.

Why am I doing this??? For me, for starters. I feel bloated & ugly. My clothes don't fit any more - I'm down to 2 pairs of shorts! It will benefit me healthwise as well. My diabetes, blood pressure & energy levels will benefit.

Secondly, we are having company in December from our friend from England. When she last visited, I was so out of shape I couldn't enjoy anything.

I will post weekly on Wednesday's with an update. Thanks for reading.

Say a prayer for us that "Hurricane" Fay doesn't hit us hard here in Florida.

See you again soon. D :)
