One week and 3lbs down........

So I am one week into this eating better and losing weight.  Now will admit I haven't been stringent in the exercise department, but I have had a few 10,000 step days.  With it being a long weekend, I didn't get the walking in, but was busy otherwise.

My eating is a whole lot better, but of course could improve, but with losing the 3lbs, I am happy, as it's 3 lbs in the right direction, and slow and steady wins the race as they say.  I have another 9 weeks before I see the nurse practitioner, so losing the 20 lbs by then seems to be doable.

I am finding life busy at the moment with the gardening, the walking, the business and just the general day to day things and when I am busy I don't have as much time to eat!!  There is always room for improvement and I want to concentrate on walking more this week, as that is the best way for me to lose weight.

So my goals for this week:

Up the walking.

Cut back on my sweet things.....had a bit of chocolate mousse cake on Tuesday as it was someone's birthday.  But did have an hour in the swimming pool with the grandkids......so that should count for something....LOL

Remain positive!!!

When I sewed so much, I did not gain weight. I never eat while sewing so I won't get the item dirty.

I find exercise makes me hungry so no matter how much time I spend walking or on the tennis court, I never seem to lose an ounce. I have zero will power as far as eating goes!

Slow and steady wins the race is right. I think if your doctor sees that you are really trying, and if your blood work numbers are going in the right direction, he will not put you on meds right away. It really becomes a change of life style, the whole moving more and eating healthier thing. Stay positive!
