Finally! After what's seemed like an eternity (mainly because I now realize all the things I've been doing wrong) I've reached my first 10 pound goal! In Weight Watchers I'd have gotten a red ribbon. So...I'm posting my first red ribbon!
I said at the start I'd do this in 10 pound increments. So here's to the first ten! Only four to go!
The amazing part is - the scale has not budged - I mean BUDGED! in weeks. And I start this new eating plan - where I'm actually eating more and I lose! Awesome! If there's any one thing I can tell you (besides reading You On A Diet ) it's to load up on the fruits and veggies. They makes the meal seem bigger, it's much more satisfying, and you'll feel better too. Also - make taking a 30 minute walk as much of a routine in your day as brushing your teeth or taking a shower. As the Nike commercial says - Just Do It! I make my mind up mentally on the drive home from work. Then as soon as I walk in the door - I change my clothes and look for my sneakers. It takes me about 35 minutes to walk two miles. I always feel better when I'm done and I just know I'm going to reap the benefits.
On a side note:
My little grandson (only 2 years old) is at the hospital having tubes put in his ears as I write this. I know it's supposed to be a simple procedure - yet still I worry. Say a prayer for the little guy. Thanks :-)
