Seems like we have been doing this forever. But it has only been 10 weeks. I am proud of how we have been able to make a legitimate go of it "this time." I know we have all been there before not really feeling like we really can or will do it. I shared a bit of that feeling in one of my first blog posts.
I happy to say I have lasted much longer than a week to 10 days :)
As far as weight lost goes, I am satisfied with my progress. With this week's loss of 2 pounds I have now lost a total of 23.2 pounds. I feel like I am getting to the point where I noticing a difference for myself, even though no one has commented (outside people who know I am working on it). When I get to that point I think I will be more confident that I am really succeeding.
My husband is nearing his goal and is starting to think about maintenance plans and building muscle. He has done a phenomenal job :)
For lunch today I had KFC - a chicken little and potato wedges. Even though it was only 600 calories - bigger than a normal lunch, but not a crazy big lunch - it seemed to hit my like a brick. Since lunch I have had a bit of a stomach ache. I think the food preparation (read fried) is not what I am currently used to and my stomach is reacting.
To be honest, I don't have a plan to never eat fast food again, but I imagine over time it will be something I just don't really want so much anymore. Perhaps days like this when I have it and later don't feel as good physically will have a positive affect on my food choices.
Picture of me and my sweetie from this weekend. Look forward to comparing to my changing self in a couple of months :) Have a good week, everyone!
Finally figured out how to get the Weigh-in Wednesday link up on my page. Thank you Finding the Skinny Geek Within for being great tech support :)
