I am so excited to have something that is actually working for me. I can’t even explain my enthusiasm for that. Today marks 6 weeks of concentrated, trainer-led, food and exercise challenge. Today I was 17.5 pounds lighter than day one. I’ve lost 5 inches off my waist, 3 inches off my hips, and 2 inches off my thigh. My body fat has gone down about 1%.
I am very aware I have much more to lose, but I am thrilled!!!! Today we were in the pool again and I can tell I was stronger than last Monday when we were in the pool. It’s still pretty pitiful compared to what I could do at age 20, but it’s an improvement each week.
The one comment I received from my trainer and his boss today was EAT. He said the days that I hit 2200 calories were highly responsible for that weight loss (3.5 pounds this week.) I honestly thought he was going to say that the days I was at 2200 calories was just too much. NOPE. Eat, eat, eat, eat. I’m trying.
I’d say 14 years ago when Ben was just a wee one and I was nursing him, Kristin Moynihan and I joined Weight Watchers in Gunnison. I was successful then too, but I was much younger and I was nursing. But that’s the first time I tried eating 6 times a day. And IT WORKED.
So if you see me eating, it’s okay!
I will write about Marcia’s visit. We had such a great time. I just wanted to share my excitement for today. And I have to keep getting our house ready for the class we have starting on Saturday morning (at 8:00 a.m.). I’m going to keep up with my fitness goals even with the class. We have a unique schedule for our class (3 times a week – every other week). But it works for all of us, so it will be great.
