{August 3, 2012}   Week Two Results

Well, it has been two weeks since I made the decision to change my life for the better. I dropped another pound this week for a total of seven pounds all together. I was expecting more, but (and sorry if you’re a guy reading this) I just recently had a visit from “Aunt Flow”. From past experience, I tend to put on a few pounds of water weight when she visits so I am really hoping for a drop on the scale when she leaves. I have made my first check-in with my doctor for this coming Monday so it would be nice to show even more of a loss. I know I shouldn’t be hummed about the one pound loss, since it’s better than nothing, but I really, REALLY want to be below 360. It’s been so long since I have…

This week has been harder because I have been craving food I can’t have, but it feels good to say I have NOT given in! Today, we took my mom to Olive Garden for her birthday and I faced my first out to eat /eating healthy challenge. I picked a salad and a meal of grilled chicken breast with broccoli and asparagus. It was good and I feel it fit my new healthier way of eating. It’s nice to know I CAN still eat out with people without feeling guilty!

For exercise, I have been doing Zumba on the Wii ..20 minute beginner classes and I can tell I am getting a little better each time. I think I am going to also research dance/aerobics videos on Netflix Instant Watch. I think having a lot of variety will keep me from getting bored and I definitely love dancing. It’s just so much fun and I forgot I am exercising!

Well…this is the update for me…I will let you know how next week goes next Friday! 🙂

I totally feel that frusteration, I had it today until I whipped out my measuring tape. Sometimes the numbers aren’t on the scale but show up in measurements, maybe you could add that in as a monthly thing, as a moral boost when things start to slow. But a pound down is a pound closer, congrats!



Thanks! I’ve been thinking about adding measurements too…I like your idea of doing it monthly

As Meagan suggests, take some measurements. This is always more tru than the scale. Well done. We are cheering for you.



Thank you! I am definitely going to do the measurements

Worth the trouble

“He couldn’t see why people made such a fuss about people eating their silly old fruit anyway, but life would be a lot less fun if they didn’t. And there was never an apple, in Adam’s opinion, that wasn’t worth the trouble you got into for eating it.” ~from Good Omens
