{August 20, 2012}   One month down!

I am down 20 full pounds from my start point! Pretty good results for my first month, don’t you think?!

I talked with my doctor today about my calories and exercising. He told me to exercise a little, not a lot and also said to leave my calories at 1200 a day. I had questions because after exercising, I sometimes feel weak like I’m not getting enough so he told me to drink a LITTLE Gatorade after exercising. I’m guessing this should help me replenish what I’m losing when I exercise. He seemed to think my 20-30 minutes of Zumba or Just Dance on the Wii was a good amount so I guess I will be sticking to that and not rush myself to lasting a full hour on working out yet.

Otherwise, I’m feeling happy still and I don’t necessarily SEE a weight change but I have been told by others that they can tell I have lost weight. I still have a couple more weeks before I check my measurements again and I am hoping my measurements show what people have been saying. 20 pounds down, 30 more to go by Christmas! I really think that’s very possible. 🙂

That’s fantastic!

Thanks! I am really happy about it! 🙂

You have done so well another 30lbs is likely to be gone well before Xmas! Are you finding it easy to do?

I’m hoping it’s gone well before my goal deadline so I can be even smaller by Christmas! 🙂
I wouldn’t say “easy” because if it was so easy I would have had a handle on my weight before….There’s definitely some strong willpower going on with me and a lot of determination but I WOULD say compared to in the past, it feels more likely to stick and work long term because I’m in a different mind frame than I was in the past when I tried, succeeded and then failed. This time, I am going into this realizing that even if I lose all the weight I want, I will ALWAYS have to eat in healthier ways for the rest of my life. This has to be a permanent thing for me because I know NOW that the weight CAN return easily if I don’t live a healthier life consistently….due to my thyroid disorder.

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
