I am pretty happy with this week's progress. After losing only 1.5 pounds in 3 weeks, this last week I was able to lose 2 pounds. I think the key has been eating breakfast & drinking water. I did have a dinner of 2 pieces of pizza and salad. I was working off the theory that once in a while you need to give your body a calorie boost to stoke the fire of your metabolism. This week it worked, but I wouldn't have done this unless I had been pretty much stuck for a few weeks. It worked this week, but it is like playing with fire when you do this. It can backfire on you. Have I said 'fire' enough in this post? Geez!
Next week I start Phase 2 in Jillian Michael's Body Revolution. All the workouts change this week and get harder, so I am expected encouraging results. One thing I can say about this program is that I really feel like I am in better physical condition! My endurance and strength have improved greatly. I can now do 15 REAL push-ups! In January I couldn't do even one!
My goal is to lose 2 more pounds over the next 2 weeks. Hubby & I are going to Vegas and I'd like to be at or pass the 30 pounds lost mark. If I get there, I will be the thinnest I have been in 12 years. All that time spent feeling bad about myself for being over weight. Why didn't I do this sooner? Hmmm.... That's a pretty profound question. I will need to think about that.....
See you next Saturday!
