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, April 4, 2009
Good news and bad news: The good news is that I lost another 2.5 pounds giving me a total weight loss of 5 lbs, yea I got my 5lb button. Bad news is after only 2.5 weeks I am already falling back into bad habits and I am afraid to get on the scale Saturday.
Each day is a new day and I am not going to dwell on this past week regardless of what the scale says, I am going to move forward or in relationship to the scale - I'm going to move down...hee hee.
I do have to say that even though I am not always getting my eight glasses of water in and I am drinking more water now then I used to. As far as the pop goal, some days I do good - some days not to much.
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 successes 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.
Have a great day and make it a healthy one.
