Last Week: 84.8
This Week: 81.7
I am pleased with the results, but must admit, it has been hard. I AM NOT a morning person nor a breakfast eater. Trying to do both has seemed to have nothing but negative consequences. Getting up earlier makes me feel SO tired the whole day. I like that I seem to get more done, but don't like that I never feel good all day. With the whole breakfast bit, I must have some switch that turns on the grazing, because the second I eat, I WANT TO EAT ALL DAY! I get this unsatisfiable desire to eat, and want every no-no food out there!
I am "supposed" to gear down to 1000 cals this weeks, but since I have been loosing, I may stay at 1200 for up to another two weeks until I can get a diet schedule down that works. I have found that there are some super yummy meals that feel like comfort foods. Healthy Choice makes a turkey, squash, cranberry meal that only has 210 cals in it! It's perfect for my evening meal, because I can just pop it in the microwave and go. The only downfall is that most of the meals have quite a bit of sodium in them. I am supposed to watch the levels of sodium, but it seems that the water pills are helping so much with the edema, I can eat one and not be in too much trouble.
I'm am trying to make goals like Heidi. I think I kinda jumped into this head first, and it has been a little overwhelming. It seems like you have to be in the mindset to go on a diet or it doesn't work. I guess my time was now, because I didn't want to put it off any longer.
I am happy for all the support, and feel like blogging about it makes me a little more responsible! My main goal is to be in the 40's for my birthday in February! I also think I am going to start saving $20 a payday, and put into an account so when I reach my goal, I can buy some new clothes! I am really hoping by the summer, I will have reached my goal.
I DO need some help with some ideas for exercise. When I was in the hospital I lost a lot of muscle, and need some ideas on getting back some strength!
Thanks again for being so supportive! I hope you are all having a marvelous day!
