I weighed myself this morning, and I’m down to 196.5 pounds. That means I’ve lost another 1.5 pounds since my last update!
Overall, I’m feeling good. My energy level is great, and I’m not feeling completely exhausted at times when I should have plenty of energy to make it through the day. Just a few months ago, I would regularly feel wiped out early in the day. At first, I thought it was just trying to keep up with 5 kids (3 of those kids being 5 yrs. old and under), but I think it also had something to do with my diet. Since we’ve switched to a more whole foods plant-based diet, I’m not experiencing the exhaustion on a near daily basis anymore.
The one big thing I’ve not been doing so much that I want to change is exercise. I’ve been skipping trips to the local zoos with Ruben and the kids in order to get some quiet time to work on projects. I’ve also not been getting on the treadmill like I’ve wanted.
I’m seriously going to work on exercising regularly. I must, especially since my work-at-home job requires so much time sitting in front of a computer.
Anyway, here’s what my progress looks like this week:
Beginning weight: 220 lbs.
Current Weight: 196.5 lbs.
Goal Weight: 170 lbs.
# of total pounds I want to lose in 2012: 50lbs.
# of pounds to go until I reach my goal: 26.5 lbs.
Total # of pounds lost to date: 23.5 lbs.
Next week, I’m going to share an updated picture of myself.
How is your weight loss progress coming along this week?
