Happy Weekend, everyone!!
Numbers on the scale!!
12/31/11 - 122kg 268,9 lbs
01/07/12 - 121,1 kg 266,9 lbs (-2 lbs)
01/14/12 - 120,5 kg 265,6 lbs (-1,3 lbs)
01/21/12 - 119 kg 262,3 lbs (-3,3 lbs)
I'm so happy with these numbers. I'm aiming for 2 lbs a week so this is looking really good.
Waist measurements have stayed the same. 46.8 inches
My workouts were sadly lacking again this week. I went to aerobic class twice this week and went out for a walk/run only once.
Like I've said before I track with My Fitness Pal and it wasn't working for me a few days this past week. So I looked into a site called Calorie Count and I really like the way they break down my nutrients - they tell me what I haven't had enough of (like fiber) and what I've had too much of (like sodium or carbs). But since I've already logged so much in MFP, that's where I'm back at today.
My average daily calories have been between 1400 and 1800 calories a day.
I'm still reading Made to Crave, and the chapter I just read is about how important accountability is. I think all of us participating in this challenge can agree with that.
Betty also sent me her copy of The One Day Way, by Chantel Hobbs. After reading her first book Never Say Diet, I finally had the hope and encouragement I needed to start losing weight again (that was in October 2010), and I'm really liking this book, too. Thanks Betty!
On the support... I've been reading your blogs every day. Thursday, I had set time aside to read and comment on my fellow challengers, and the internet was down. So, I didn't get in all the commenting I wanted to, Sorry!
My buddy Julie, has been struggling. I wish I were closer so I could help her out if I could. Please send her some encouragement. I know many of you already do!
Julie, I wish I could give you that big hug you need! I know Someone is there for you right now. Just take it one day at a time. Enjoy Mike every chance you have, because you know how much you'll cherish those memories when he's away.
Today has been a little difficult for me. I had an appointment with my ob/gyn and will have to see another specialist as soon as he's available. I've been bleeding for about 10 days now and since it didn't look like it would stop anytime soon, I decided to have it checked out. I've been really tired these last few days, and I'm assuming it's the blood loss. Hoping for an opening next week so I can get on with my life. But like I said... one day at a time.
Have a wonderful weekend!
