As many of you know, on Thursday I WENT BACK ON THE LOW-CARB DIET I’ve had success with in the past. I also started walking again (5 miles last week) and I even did 30 minutes of aerobic exercise at home yesterday.
I must say I'm quite pleased with the results - 10 lbs. lost since Thursday – yeah me!! Now I’ve been down this road (many times) before, so I know the first week is always the easiest week to lose weight. These results are in no way astonishing or abnormal for me - and, trust me, when you are as big as me it doesn’t take much to drop 10 pounds. But I am still happier than Oprah in a biscuit factory over the results so far.
My first goal is to lose 10% of my total weight (as of Thursday) – which would be 29 lbs (do the math – it’s not pretty). So in the first 4 days I am already 1/3rd of the way to my first goal. Yeah Me!!
Thanks to all of you for your encouragement – it really helps. I must say that doing this “publicly” makes me think twice before reaching for a Big Mac.
In non-diet-related news, this is how I spent my weekend…
Dust Bunnies Mrs. Alaineous and her hubby Mr. Mischief send me the boxed set of the original Star Wars trilogy! They no longer wanted it, so they mailed it to me – along with a hysterical “National Smell My Hand Day” postcard. It was wonderful spending the weekend in “A galaxy far, far away…”. Thank you Mrs. A and Mr. M!!!!!
So ... how was YOUR weekend??
