For the last couple of months I’ve been eating less.
Not exercising that much really….but fixing my eating.
Lots of fruits and vegetables, proteins and less breads and pastas, especially for the evening meal.
I do need to exercise which would help with more than just the weight.
That’s the next step.
I’m happy I’m finally getting to my goal! It’s been forever…I’m already fitting into clothes I hadn’t seen for years. More importantly, I feel better and healthier.

For the last couple of months I’ve been eating less.
My SIL has been losing weight steadily for a few weeks now. She shared her “diet” with me. It’s not really a diet, just a healthier way of eating. Quite easy too. I have already been doing some of that but my commitment level to healthy eating comes and goes (mostly goes!)
Well, a new week is starting and I felt so bad this morning due to overindulging yesterday that I hope this kicks my butt into gear.
One good thing: last week I started to exercise again!!
6 months ago I was at 29.9 (185 lbs)
With two weeks of boot camp I went down 5 lbs. After those two weeks I had to quit boot camp because of clinicals and school. I still have 21 days paid for that I can go back and finish at any time.
I was on vacation for 5 weeks in Argentina and while last time I came back with 10 extra pounds…this time I came back with 4 lbs LESS! YAY…
I’ve been trying to eat at home, more salads and less bread and pasta.
I weighed 175.6 lbs this morning: BMI 28.3 Been steady at around that weight for about two weeks.
It’s slow…but it’s progress nevertheless.
29.9 :That’s my present BMI. And I start EXTREME BOOT CAMP, I’m so happy about that, I’m writing about it in every related goal I have!!!!!
Orientation for EBC was yesterday and they gave us a list of what not to eat after 3 pm for maximum weight loss. Basically, no starchy foods, no high-glycemic foods, no carbohydrate-rich foods.
Here’s the list, called THE DIRTY DOZEN:
I hate how weak I am… I’ve been losing and gaining four pounds taking me from 180 to 176 back and forth for MONTHS!!
To me this means that I’m not committed, that I can’t do this…I feel like a failure. Just last night I was all pumped up about the fresh fruits and veggies we got, and a chance to start a new week well…being healthy…
Well, I didn’t start well. I guess I have to start again at the next meal, the next minute. I know that i should do that.
I had gained a couple of pounds, putting me up to 180 again!! I hate that number, hate it, hate it, hate it!
Been eating a lot better this week, plus some exercising…not as much as I should of course, but going in the right direction.
I’m back to 178 lbs, BMI 28.8.
Yikes…that was not fun at all. Hubby and I measured each other (ok that was kinda fun, LOL) and wrote it on a journal. Our waist to hip ratios are a lot better than what we expected! Only a few points til they are good! So that’s good news. Less chances of heart disease for both of us!
We are getting busier now in the evenings so the workouts are going to be in the mornings. When I read all of my entries here I get disappointed because it’s taking such a long time to get there, you know? BUT, I know that it’s important to keep going, to make healthy choices for life not for now.
Last year I went from 32 to 36… and after 6 months of not working out consistently and not eating well, it’s 24!! I wanted to cry!!!!
We went to the gym today, and on the treadmill fitness test I scored 29.9. I’ll check my Polar Fit test again tomorrow and see if it compares…it would be nice! But, i’ll go with the Polar value since it’s a lot more accurate.
My progress is so slow…granted I am not trying hard enough!
My husband and I are starting to exercise together this week. This should help a lot since I hate exercising by myself.
Yesterday my gf and I figured out how much we really need to lose according to our physical frame and BMI and how long it would take us if we lose it the healthy way, you know? 1 to 2 pounds weekly with good eating habits and exercise. We both have different goal dates and goal weights, of course…but it’s great to have another person to do this with. She is very supportive and we can talk about anything…especially those things that are behind being overweight, all the emotional baggage that comes to light when you try to change the status quo. Those things are hard to bring out in conversation but we feel so good afterwards that it’s worth the uneasiness.
