I’m obviously happy because I did lose weight as I always go into weigh-ins with a bit of trepidation. The only problem is that people that know me know that I am not the most patient person so I am always wishing that the number was larger!
My random goal at the start of this was to be down to 250 pounds by Nikki’s wedding. I have nine weeks left so that would require an average weekly loss of 2.6 pounds per week to accomplish that. I suppose it’s doable but not all weeks are going to produce good results I’m sure!
One key to make it will be the exercise. If I can stay on top of that it is likely achievable. As to that topic I walked/jogged last night. Well lets just say that when I tried to get out of bed today by legs reminded me of my age and weight!
I intend to carry on with some level of exercise today but this is how I’ll be moving about until that point.
Again- I sincerely thank each and every one of you that come to this site and support my efforts. I assure you that I could not do this if it wasn’t for the fear of failure before you. For those who are considering starting such an effort- do it! I swear to you I have never once gone hungry in these three weeks. It’s all about retraining yourself in what/how to eat.
