I weighed in yesterday. The number: 407. To date, I have been able to lose 170 pounds.
It's not coming off as fast as I'd like. Right now, I'm at an average of 2.5 pounds a week. At that rate, I'm looking at it taking 2 more years to get to my goal of 200. I guess that's not too big of a deal, but sooner would be nice, wouldn't it?
So, I have 2 choices:
1.) Eat less
2.) Exercise more.
I could always eat less, but I have to be cautious there. I don't want to upset the apple cart. There is the old saying that "if it ain't broke, don't fix it."
So I'll be amping up the exercise. I walked 4.2 miles yesterday and am going to keep doing that more often.
I really can't complain. I have a much better life now and it's only going to get better. I can buy clothes at the store. I can fit in my car. I can walk long distances. I can tie my shoes. I have so much more energy. Life is good!
