I haven't been regularly keeping up with posts of my weight loss journey. Sam at Sam's Noggin does a Stick with it Saturday and said I should join her. So, here I am.
I started losing weight in October 2010. I really thought I'd be at my goal weight by now but I think slow and steady is good. As of this morning, I have lost 66.6 lbs. You can read about how I was losing weight in my post How I Lost 50 lbs. Since September the weight was just coming off SO slowly. I did not feel like exercising and I was eating about the same way but was a little less strict with myself. At the end of February, people in my family started to get sick...influenza and pneumonia for several. My husband was even in the hospital for 4 days. While he was in the hospital I found out I was pregnant then a few weeks later I had a miscarriage. A week later it was my birthday...... Lots of distractions from dieting. I was still sticking to the plan but just not all that motivated.
A couple of weeks ago I decided to get serious again and started exercising and really watching what I was eating and gained a pound. Talk about discouraging!
Last week (or so??) my friend Amanda who was my original motivator for trying the Flat Belly Diet decided to switch to Weight Watchers. I was drawn to the idea of WW because you don't have to count fruits and vegetables and I just felt that I needed to try something new to get myself jump started again. I signed up Thursday and went for my first meeting. I bought the monthly pass so I can go to unlimited meetings and use the online tools. It was fun and I'm excited to be trying something new. (and down 2 lbs already)
I like to use Leslie Sansone walking DVD's. I think I did 21 miles this week. I'd like to get back to bike riding which I have not done in well over 20 years. I used to be an avid bike rider in my youth.
Hopefully I'll be keeping up with these posts each week. Thanks Sam for hosting it! Link up your own diet/exercise post over at Sam's Noggin.
