Week Four 1/22/11

January 1:   208.6
January 15: 206.4
January 22: 205.2

I'm very pleased with my progress this month.  I'm doing very well with the no sugary treats.  Drinking lots of water and getting in my exercise.  After awhile it just becomes your way of life.  So glad my husband is going to the gym with me.  Should I have a day where I think "I don't want to go." he says, "We paid for it, we're going."

Last night we ate at Red Lobster.  My meal fit in with my calories and I even ate one of their "evil" Cheddar Bay Biscuits--just one!  Seriously, they are not a good choice because 1 has 150 calories.

Week Three 1/15/2011


I gained .8 from the week before but from the first of January I'm still down 2.2 lbs.  Then today (Sunday) I was back to 205.

Keeping up my hour (or very close to it)  a day of exercise.  Keeping track of my food eaten so all is well.

I weigh about 65 lbs. less than my highest weight and I have 2 areas that I still have the fat clinging to.  One, of course, it the belly.  When I read all those magazines that say "walk away the belly fat" I'm so so so unbelieving.  I've walked miles and done hundreds of abs workouts.  I have lost about 7 inches in my waist but I need to lose about 3 more to be in the healthy range.

I'm satisfied with my hips, legs, thighs and back.  But my knees are extremely fat.  Pouches of fat behind the knee--very, very unattractive.  I do a lot of exercises for my legs but I know of no exercise that targets the knees.  So it is my hope that if I lose an additional 25 to 30 lbs. that some of that fat will disappear.

Hurray!  Loss of 3 lbs. for the week.

Changes I've made:

    giving up sugary treats for the month

I've got a new attitude!

Week One 1/1/11

208.6 lbs. 47.3% body fat

In 2009 I posted weekly my weight loss adventure and did well.  In 2010 I chose to not do this and I actually gained back just a bit over 3 lbs. during the year.

In 2011 I'm going to post here again weekly.

Goals:  Exercise an hour a day at least 6 days a week.
            Drink more water.
            Eat more fruit and vegetables.
