I started a weight loss journey on started May 17th, 2011. Each week I thought I’d weigh in and let y’all know how I was doing. By week 6 I stopped recording… because by week 8 I wasn’t losing weight or actively trying. BUT, wouldn’t you know it, I’ve started to try again. And I’m down to 299lbs. (started at 324). This is a large milestone and is very motivating. I haven’t been under 300lbs. since 2005 when I picked up running for a few months. I feel like I am finally doing the right thing.
Last time I actively tried losing weight, I just went with exercise. Which is good, but was hard to maintain. I truly don’t want to make time for exercise. I feel my time is better spent elsewhere… at this point in my life. I can’t make a habit of it. Hopefully someday that will change. In the meantime, I have effectively been changing my diet. Less carbs, more fiber and more fruits and vegetables in general. That is it. I’ve started this about 6 or 7 weeks ago and have lost 15 pounds… without sacrificing time to exercise. ~2 pounds a week. That is pretty amazing. So, I’m going to keep at it and see how it goes.
I have met one of my goals and now can cross that off the list.
