Not fade away….

January was tough.

And I had to make the decision to keep on losing weight.

I decided to go with the good habits I started with and concentrate on the positive.

1} concentrate on walking after work…not worry about distance just get outside 45 minutes after work and walk. (I have walked 4 times after work in the last 5 days- 6.5 miles total)

2) no sugary foods…(4 days and counting)

I have been eating moderately– I feel I am back on track !!! February has mostly been good. The most important part about this is to keep going…..

A very good week.. weigh in is later today !!!

No sugar….walking sessions for 4 days after work…which has lead to 10,000 steps as marked by my new Fitbit. Plus good eating in general. Grilled chicken or fish plus vegies for lunch and a moderate dinner. Breakfast has included some whole grains either toast or oatmeal (if I had my druthers it would just be fruit)..but what are you gonna do? I have also tracked every day.

December was the worst month…. December was the best month

I finished December at 219.4. lbs. I started this process around June 10th and my weight was a little over 244 lbs. So I have lost about 25 lbs in a touch under 6 moths. In December I lost a little less then 1.5 lbs. On one hand that was lower then average. On the other hand December offered a ton of challenges..2 office parties, Christmas and Christmas Eve parties with my family plus a modest New Years celebration. On top of that my office had treats everywhere. I resisted a fair amount of the free treats (although I was not perfect). And I tracked almost every day on the weight watcher app. I am looking forward to the rest of January which is as near as I can tell a party free zone…And I am off to a good start so far 6 days into the new year…
