Last Weigh-in For August
Okay so I didn't make my first goal, it was an obscene amount I had hoped to lose but if the folks on The Biggest Loser could do it I figured I could too. I had hoped to lose a pound a day for a whole month.
After the first week of trying I realized that I wouldn't be able to lose 30+ pounds in a month so I changed my goal to 20 pounds in a month. Well that didn't work out either.
However, I did lose 3 pounds this week bringing my month's total of weight lost to 15.2 pounds, but I started on the 3rd of August not the 1st. Nothing to sneeze at.
I'm close to one of my first increment goals of 20 pounds which means I can soon give myself a reward. I'm excited to be so close to the 20 pound mark. I wanted to lose 60 pound total, which means three goals and three rewards. I just have to be patient as its not going to come off as fast as I want.
Nurse M did tell me that the more I lose before the IVF the better my odds were going to be to get pregnant. So every time I see candy bar, can of soda, or something that I know is full of non-nutrition calories I think that if I eat that I won't get pregnant. Its my bit of will power.
Yes, I had a single slice of my husband's birthday cake. Yes, we went out for dinner last night.
No I didn't have a big slice of the cake. No I didn't eat all on my plate or bowl. I shared it with my husband. He's the right weight for his height. He can eat what he wants.
I'll continue to keep trying to shed the weight. I'm not following a diet plan. If I want something to eat, I eat. I exercise within limits of my fibromyalgia.
I do not take diet pills. I don't take diet supplements, shakes, bars, or any other meal replacement.
Truly it is all about portion control, lowering the sodium, lowering the fat and exercising.
Now I just need to hope that the weight loss continues as my medicines change. I might have to work a bit harder to get more off but I'm going to try.
