I need to start from over there first. January 2016 had me knowing I needed to restart.....again x?????. I was weighed
and weight was 197...I couldn't believe it and yet I did. I started walking and joined every weight FB place and group ** sparkpeople and the like **
I came across. I was walking a mile and actually I was walking two miles when you counted the return trip. I got up to 5 miles..walking and run/jogging.
I went too fast and would have sore heels that kept me from walking for several days then weeks. I wanted to get back into exercise mode however
at my age, all the extreme, beastmode and killer routines just weren't for me. Heck, let me be real here....they weren't when I was younger!!!
For some reason I just couldn't get into it...I think it was because I wanted to be outside and feel that rush when I am walking..feels so good.
I started watching what I was eating. I decided to go to a weight clinic....ok..hold on! I went got weighed and was at 180-something...I had lost some weight!
However the lady there told me she would NOT give me the usual program but would give me a food list. Pretty much what I was already doing.
Ever been turned away from a weight clinic? lol lol lol. Then and there Jenny Craig popped up...I thought ok, it worked last time and if I could just
'get started' lose 20 to 40 pounds I could do the rest myself.....cost, cost, cost,cost of food. I bit the bullet.
So there I am sitting with a JCC....I told her I didn't want to know how much I weighed...yet I did find out. She asked what my goal weight would be
I said oh, 135-140...how much weight do you want to lose...oh, about 40 pounds....HA! losing that 40 pounds will put me under my goal weight!
oh happy day.
So I started and completed my first week. 4th day on, I could feel my energy levels rising. I only disliked one food selection, and I got in some
exercise. I went to my JCC today..8-2-2017 and I have lost 3 pounds. No pooh poohing that amount for me!!! I am JAZZED to meet my second week
and relearn,realigned and think forward NOW on a healthy calorie limit per day, real food portions and amounts to keep me at goal weight.
Starting my next session of belly dance also! And no that is NOT me in the photo.....** smile **
Here's to less of me!!!
