|Current photo - down 51 lbs|
|Where I was last March|
It is kind of ironic to me that I hit it now, as I have gone into the diet funk! All of a sudden, it has become harder. I am having a more difficult time eating right, not snacking, and tracking. Especially the tracking.
I hate Tracking what I eat. And when I say Hate, I mean it is the last thing I want to do, and what has always been my problem with Weight Watchers before. For the past 6 months, it has been what has worked for me. So while I hate it, it works and has helped me to lose this weight. And it will be what works to help me lose more. This 50 lbs, while a lot, is just the start. I still have a lot to go, and I am determined to keep at it.
I have now met a few mile stones on my weight loss journey: I lost 5% of my beginning body weight, 10% of my body weight, I now weight less then my husband (silly, but important to me), I have controlled my blood sugar to the point that my Doctor took me off of one of my drugs, my knees feel better and overall I feel better.
I also noticed today on my walk that I am walking faster. I returned to walk at a park that I have not walked at since Spring, and I walked further in less time. It is a more demanding walk then my usual (more hills), so when I had completed a longer distance then I was doing there last Spring, and looked at my time, I was surprised to find that I had walked less then the time I use to put in there. This is a good thing, as I am preparing for a 2 week trip to Disney World next May. In our history, Glenn has always out walked me and made me exhausted by the end of each day. A few weeks ago we went to the zoo as a family, and I out walked Glenn. So there has been great improvement in my health.
My next goal is that I lose 20 more lbs by our trip. I should be able to do it (if not exceed it) as that is 29 weeks away, so less then a pound a week. I know I can do it!
