Big Wins

I wanted to send out a quick update.  I have been very positive, I have been on track with food, and I have also been getting in some exercise, not a lot of exercise, but some.  This morning was my weigh in day and I am down 2 pounds and 1 inch.

I was surprised, I expected it to be a 1 pound loss, but this loss got me into the 160’s, and I am so happy with that.

Starting weight: 176 (this was the highest I got to as of September 29, 2016)

Weight last week:  171

Weight this week:  169

Total Loss:  7 pounds

I am considering joining a gym, I have been taking 2 Zumba classes a week and paying for each class.  I have just received a free 5 day pass to a Woman’s Fitness and as it turns out, their program, where I can access the facility 7 days a week, and have the use of all the classes, and equipment, is less then what I’m paying for just the 2 classes.  And they also offer Zumba.

I’m a little nervous about my weekend, I have been doing so well, and I am going to be visiting a close friend.  She’s basically my sister.  Anyway, when we get together we drink, and eat and it’s not healthy at all.  I don’t want to get derailed by this, but I want to go and be social, and it’s also her birthday, and I haven’t had a drink in so long, that I might be drunk off just the one.  Anyway, I’m worried, I think I may pack a bean dip that I have a recipe for, it’s a great dip, it doesn’t have sugar, or grains, I can have it and hopefully it will keep me full enough that I won’t want to binge on anything else.

I will have to come up with a plan on how to handle the weekend, and take it from there.  Any advice would be helpful, please comment if you have any thoughts.

  1. SEE?! You ARE making progress! Seven pounds is friggin’ AH-MAZE-ZING! You are working it! You are staying the course – even during your rough days. If only I could say the same thing. I am so VERY proud of you!

    What if you take the book with you and the two of you come up with stuff you can eat and/or binge on (that is good for you)? Would she go along with that?

    I know you are going to be SOOOOOOOOOOOO successful!

    I’ve got your back!

    1. She is relatively easy going, and we both love to eat, and neither of us are picky, but with this book, as you know, not everyone has a lot of the ingredients available, so I’d have to pick and choose before going. We’re too busy to just sit down and talk about it beforehand, and I know that we are going for Ramen, because that is what she wants to do on her birthday. The bean dip is from the book and is really good, so I can make a big batch of that, and maybe I’ll bring along some fruits and nuts with me for snacking. I’m trying not to worry too much, she has a pool, so I;m going to try and fit in a lot of swimming with Devin and hopefully I can build up enough calories to counteract the effects of the binging…LOL
