Weekly Weigh In

Just lost a little this week, but I’ll take it!

Weekly weight update:

Starting Weight – 1/6/15: 218

Current Weight – 7/28/15: 171

Total Loss –  47

What I do seem to be losing is my “arse”.   The stomach would be much preferred! I’ve got the jeans too loose in the butt right now.  Not complaining though! :).

Weekly Weigh In

It’s now been 6 months and I’m very happy with my progress.  There are still things I need to work on (i.e. water, remembering to take my vitamins and tracking my protein) but all in all I’m so happy!

Stayed the same this week.  Believe it or not, I’m just now getting out of vacation mode.  Time to get back into my workout routine and walk more!

Trying to get out of vacation mode and back into my routines.  It was nice to have Friday off to recoup a bit.  Still washing clothes.  Need to get more walking in this week!  Feeling great!

Weekly Weigh-In – Back from Vacation

Weekly weight update:

Starting Weight – 1/6/15: 218

Current Weight – 6/30/15: 173.8

Total Loss –  44.2

Had a glorious time in London and Paris and managed to lose a few more pounds!  We did a LOT of walking.  Daily step totals were around 15 – 17,000 daily!  I did, however eat what I wanted (just not much of it).  I generally ordered chicken, shrimp or beef.  Had a few “chips” here and there and definitely desserts.  Had the best Napoleon I’ve ever had at Café La Paix in Paris and also had ice cream a few times.  In Paris I had a Pain au Chocolat every morning! I found a balance and was happy to come home and have lost weight.

Here are some of the things I enjoyed…
