This is my first weigh in and I don’t have high expectations. I haven’t been exercising at all. Well, except for walking around the zoo over the weekend. But, other than that, I haven’t done anything. I’m trying to focus on one thing at a time and get a firm grasp before I move on to something else. Since food is the hardest for me, I’m tackling that first. You know, the whole eat the frog mentality.
Since I’ve only focused on my food, I wasn’t expecting to see much of a change on the scale. I wasn’t even planning on weighing myself so soon after my check up but I was curious. Every other time I’ve done this, I’ve weighed myself daily. I know, I know, some of you are going to say I shouldn’t do that but it works for me, okay?
I’ve been stepping on the scale all week just to see what’s happening. Imagine my surprise when I stepped on the scale yesterday and saw….drum roll please…..268.0! Which means, if my math is right, that I’ve lost 10 pounds! I know that this is pretty much all water weight but, hey, I’ll take what I can get. 😀 I can’t tell you what this has done for my motivation!
The only thing I’ve done is watch my carbs, sugar, and calories. I’ve also done some meal planning and snack prep. I love cashew, and, as it turns out, they’re good for you. So, I bought some and portioned them out into snack baggies. I just grab and go now and I love it!
For week 2, I’ll be incorporating exercise into the mix to see what happens. So, stay tuned for the next weigh in to see how I did.
