Well, I’ve completed my first week of the ‘eat healthier, lose weight’ journey of 2018.
I’m down 5.2 lbs!
I know, first week is always the most spectacular, usually do to fluid loss. I’ll still take it. 🙂
Ideally, I’d like to lose 2-3 most weeks, but will happy as long as it’s 2 lbs. most weeks. In the past, I’ve always been able to lose 2-3 lbs. per week, until near goal weight, but the last 2 times that was always in an almost grain free plan, which I can’t quite do anymore. But I’m trying to keep my calories to about where they were grain free, so hopefully I can keep up that pace of weight loss or close to it. Even though, yes, I’m a few years older.
Still need to get started on exercising again, but my right knee has been bothering me since I took down the Xmas tree. It feels a little better, so I’m going to try at least 15-20 minutes or so and see how that goes. Otherwise, just continue on the way I am. It’s worked well. I’ve had no chocolate or desserts in a full week, and that feels GREAT.
That’s it for me.
Except, I got us great tickets to see Hall & Oates with Train in early May. I saw Hall & Oates about 16-17 years ago with my two daughters; it was awesome. Hubby has never seen them, but we watched a tape of a concert of theirs in the past couple of years; they still have their voices (many artists don’t as they age.) So we are very excited. 🙂
Have a great weekend!
