I have decided that if I am going to reach my goal of losing the weight I need to, then I need to be more disciplined about tracking it all. Because of that, each week, on Saturday, I will be sharing my highs and lows from the week. This weekly weight loss check in is definitely going to help me feel more in control and like I am on track with doing what I am supposed to be doing.
I just finished weighing myself and I have to say I am totally disgusted at the number. I found a picture of myself just a little over a year ago and I was at 155. However, this morning, my starting weight is 177.8.
That number makes me sick!
Being 40 has some serious disadvantages and when I look at food, I gain weight. I know I have to reset everything about the way I have been living and eating.
Weight Loss Stats:
- Starting Weight: 177.8
- Waist: 41
- Thighs: 24 1/2
- Arms: 11 1/2
- Neck: 14 1/2
- Bust: 40″
I plan on really getting focused this week and I hope that exercising becomes an addiction for me and replaces my food addiction. I can’t stop eating and it is making me so angry.
Workout plan for the week:
Sunday: Rest Day
Monday: Zumba at 6:30 with Yoga at home with my daughter
Tuesday: Zumba at 6:30 with yoga at home with my daughter
Wednesday: Yoga at home
Thursday: Kickboxing at gym at 6:30 with yoga at home with my daughter
Friday: Workout on gym equipment
Saturday: Yoga and stretching at home
I’m trying out a couple of different classes at the gym to see which ones I like best. I really would rather work out at home by myself, but just not disciplined enough to do it, so I am taking myself to the gym starting on Monday.
Of course, none of that matters if I don’t change the way I eat.
