So, I have some good news and it has to do with the scale!
This morning I weighed in at 252.8 lbs.
I lost 9.2 lbs. for my first week doing Weight Watchers Freestyle.
I feel great!
I exercised 5 days during the week on the treadmill. I am starting out slow. I started doing 1 minute of light jogging and 2 minutes of walking for a total of 30 minutes this past week. Every time I worked out I tried to increase the speed of my jogging a small amount.
This week, I will be doing 1 minute of jogging and 1 minute of walking for 30 minutes. I will also try to increase speed every time I exercise.
After a few weeks of the treadmill, I would like to expand my workouts to strength training and other cardio type workouts. Right now, I am happy where I am.
Eating has been difficult at times. I have good days and bad days but no matter what, I am winning my battles. One example of that... my department at work keeps candy sitting on a table that I walk by multiple times a day. I did not eat one piece this week. This is definitely a victory since one of my favorites is there, BUTTERFINGERS! I was able to resist the temptation and that is a win in my book.
I will start sharing a day or two during the week of eating. I'm not perfect and I'm sure some of the foods I choose to eat aren't the best for me. I'm making changes and I can't expect to change everything from day 1.
This will always be a work in progress as I learn more and start changing small things that will make a big difference.
I'm in this for the long haul.
I'm looking forward to week 2!
Until next time,
