Slow, but steady as she goes

The fast weight loss has slowed down, but I’m still making progress. I haven’t weighed myself in the past few days, but the last time I did, I was down 20 pounds. Very excited about that. I finally started walking too. I couldn’t make up my mind whether to straighten out my gym membership or to buy a treadmill. With the economic crisis erupting over the past few weeks, I decided it would be a better “investment” to use nature and not cash to start my exercise program.

I enjoy walking in the morning now. I download NPR podcasts on my iphone, and I take a brisk walk around the neighborhood. Sometimes, I don’t want to come home!

My clothes are getting loose, but not loose enough that I can start wearing some of my jeans that are folded neatly on top of my closet shelf. I really look forward to the day I can get into some of my old clothes. I’ve slowed down a little with cooking, but have really radically changed my attitude/behaviors with “bad” foods. I haven’t had any potatoes, white bread (of any kind), pasta, etc. for over a month now. I only drink diet iced tea or water and have not had anything fried at all since I started.

Tomorrow, I’ll try to remember to weight myself and report how it’s going. I’m not sure if I gained any of the twenty back, but I had better check in to see how I’m doing and make adjustments if I see a bad result.

Will try to post tomorrow night. Thanks for reading!
