This is my story, to eat better, to increase my movement, and lose weight. I would like to lose a total of 90 pounds but that is a real turn off. After all, who wants to wait that long. I have to decided to break my weight loss goal into small sub-goals. My first goal is to lost 20 pounds by 6/6/09, my daughters high school graduation.
Here are my results as of Saturday, March 28th.
That 2.5 pound lose was my first week and I consider that great due to the fact that we had three sports banquets/pot lucks that week. Last Saturday when I weighed in I found myself with no loss but no gain.
I am finding out that sodium really makes a big difference in my weight especially when I don't drink at least eight glasses of water. I was doing really good with the water until middle of the second week. Not sure why but the water consumption drop way off again. Also, I believe increasing my activity was also starting to help, but I started to fall into old habits fast with that too.
I haven't given up, everyday is a new day. As I post this I have already eaten a healthy breakfast (something I usually don't) and have planned snacks for the day.
I believe that hearing from others with a common goal is a great support system. With that in mind I have joined the world of Twitter. You can get the link to follow me in my sidebar. I encourage others to do the same and follow each other. We can post our sucesses and bombs and encourage each other on to a healthier life. I won't deny I am still getting used to this Twitter thing, if you have text messaging you can do it all through texting once you have it set up, it's actually a very easy way to stay in touch.
So how about it, want to take the Twitter Update challenge with me and encourage each other into a healthier life style?
I know, it's not healthy to spend a lot of time on the computer or our phones :-), but the support will be great.
