Progress Update – as of September 13, 2014

Height: 5’7″
Weight: 290.4 lbs
Loss: 3.9 lbs
Current BMI: 45.5
Loss: 0.6

This week’s loss, I think, was brought to you by influenza and the fact that I really couldn’t keep much down for a couple of days. So, oh well.

What I Did Well This Week:
1) One thing I have been doing well is drinking a lot of water. It’s kind of astonishing how little I had been drinking, I didn’t even realize. Now that I am drinking a lot, I notice that when I don’t, I really feel thirsty. Hopefully I can keep this up!

What I Need to Improve On:
1) Although I have been drinking more water, I haven’t been eating less sugar, which has been one of my goals for a couple of weeks, so I can most definitely improve on that.
2) I also really, really need to start getting into an exercise routine. I have really gotten off track and I haven’t been able to find my way back, so hopefully I can do that this week.

How I Feel:
Pretty good, pretty optimistic and hey, this week is a new week, hallelujah!

Progress Update – as of September 6, 2014

Height: 5’7″
Weight: 294.3 lbs
Gain: 0.1 lbs
Current BMI: 46.1
Gain: 0

So, I skipped August 30, as you may have noticed. The past couple of weeks have been SUPER busy for many reasons: my brother’s birthday, acquiring a new kitten (he is the cutest little fluffball you ever did see!!!), picking apples and plums off the trees before they all fall AND, most importantly, preparations for my very best and oldest (we’ve been friends for 24 years!) friend’s wedding, which happened on September 6th in the mountains of Alberta. Normally when I don’t do a blog post for two weeks, I like to update with both days, but I honestly cannot remember August 30. I weighed myself, but I didn’t record the number (wedding prep drove pretty much everything else out of my mind) and so I have no idea. Oh well. 

What I Did Well This Week:
1) Well, not a lot. I’m frankly surprised that I only gained 0.1 lbs, given how little sleep and exercise I’ve gotten in the last two weeks. Not to mention that I haven’t been eating very well (the whole “no sugar” thing was a total bust) and then of course weddings mean FOOD (including the most delicious red velvet cupcake I’ve ever had in my life) and drinks. I have never had a rum and coke before the wedding and I have to say, I’m hooked! 

What I Can Improve On:
1) Now that the wedding is over, I really want to get back on track with my exercise and my eating and my sleep patterns. Cutting out sugar completely was a total mistake, as I went overboard later, but I am still hoping to reduce my sugar intake. 

How I Feel:
Pretty darn good, actually. The wedding was so wonderful, I had such a great time, and I am really hoping to use the positive energy from the weekend to help me with my goals. 

Cheers, happy losing!
