I started out saying I wouldn’t weigh myself constantly. That once a month I’d weigh in and take measurements. Yeah, well…..that ain’t happening. I’m too impatient to wait a whole month to see my improvements (or failings). So I’ve decided to stick with the once monthly measurements but every Friday I’ll weigh myself. Starting today.
Today is a REALLY good day. When I did the calculations to come up with how many calories I could have per day, I figured that cutting 1500 calories per day would mean an average loss of 3 lbs per week. Except for one day this week (I misread the nutritional info for a restaurant L), I was actually between 200 – 400 calories under my 1600 calorie goal. I guess that works for me because not only did I lose the anticipated and hoped for 3 lbs, I lost almost 3.5 more. That’s right. In eight days, I lost 6.4 lbs. That also means that since my annual exam on June 21st, when I hit my all-time highest weight of 390 lbs, I’ve lost a total of 12 lbs.
Can you imagine my happy dance after I stepped off the scale?
Well, now I know I can do this and I’m nothing but encouraged!!!!
