November 10, 2011 —
Thing are going well. My last check in, I weighed 222.2 lbs. Today I weighed in at 220 pounds! Thats another 2 pounds lost, and another 2 pounds closer to my goal of 210 pounds. I am well underway into marathon training, and the increase in exercise is definitely helping.
I must say though, I could be losing more weight if I could stay away from ice cream, and make some better choices when eating out. However, I am still moving in a good direction. I also feel that having these foods is making this experience more bearable. I think I would be miserable if I completely cut out ice cream and pizza. However, I do know that if I want to cut down past 210, I will eventually have to start really watching what I am putting into my body. But for now, I will keep doing my best and slowly shedding the pounds.
I have thirteen weeks from Saturday November 12th until my birthday. At a reasonable rate of 1 pound a week, I should definitely reach my goal! Keep your eyes open for another check in. Hopefully the next time I check in, I will be in the ‘two-teens’!
