Hello and welcome to my first post of my weight loss journey for 2015. It’s a new year and at the end of 2014 my husband and I made a pact that on January 1, 2015 we were going to eat different and somehow incorporate exercise into our busy lives.
Before the 1st I donated all the food that was currently in the home that would not be considered “healthy” and replaced those foods with healthier ones. I am at the heaviest I have even been in my life and it’s really taking a toll. To be honest I can’t even believe I’m posting a picture of myself for the world to see how big I am. I like seeing progress in pictures so I thought it would be a good idea to take pictures on Day 1 and monthly after that point. Every week we will weigh in and track our progress and take body measurements bi-weekly. My long-term goal is to lose 125lbs! It’s going to be a long road but I know I can get there.
My husband and I are a team and are doing this together. Unfortunately this is how we got into this mess as well. Good company and good food, yep that’s how it was everyday. Take-out, pizza, Chinese food, pizza, yep pizza again.. As you can see though he didn’t gain as much as I did. Go figure! We have tried this before with not much success. This time we’re not calling it a diet but a change for the better. We don’t count calories as of yet and are following no weight loss plan besides our own. If I find that I’m not losing each week then I may have to cut back or start counting calories. So far so good though.
It’s been a week and I have to say it has been pretty easy so far. I’ve been enjoying making home cooked meals and making healthy recipes. The only thing I wish I could have worked on more was getting more exercise. I’m pretty proud of my hubby too for ditching the soda since I know it was hard for him to do.
For my first week my weight loss was.. drumroll…. 6 lbs and my hubby lost 2 lbs. =)
Next week my goal is to start exercising more.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you check back in next week to see our progress for week 2.
