Hey everyone! It’s been 2 weeks since my husband and I have started our Weight Loss Journey for this year. I have not been tempted to stop at a drive-thru or grab unhealthy snacks while out shopping and my husband has done very well at staying away from all types of soda. We have been drinking a lot more water and have started to include a daily vitamin as well.
I think my body is wondering where all the crappy food is because I’ve been feeling different. I thought I would be feeling better as far as fatigue and energy but still experience those. I know it’s going to take time and it’s well worth the wait. I’m sick of being fat and not being able to do a lot of things.
I really wanted to start exercising this week because I know it goes hand in hand but damn how does anyone find time to do that? I really would like to know. After a long day and I start to get a moment I realize it’s time for the kiddos to go to bed and by that time I’m exhausted. I used to exercise at night and just may have to do that again. I wish it wasn’t so darn cold outside right now so we could walk as a family around the block or something.
During the week I have been tempted to step on the scale before weigh-in day but didn’t cave in. I think I like it better weighing in one day a week versus jumping on the scale all the time like I have done in previous years lol. Seems like more of a surprise that way.
I felt that I had a good week but haven’t noticed any clothing getting loser or feeling any lighter so I wasn’t sure how this week was going to turn out. Our progress this week was….
I lost 3 lbs and so did my hubby. =) So my total weight loss to date is 9 lbs and my hubbies 6 lbs. I really thought that I would have lost more being a bigger person but I’ll take that 3 lb loss. Since it has been 2 weeks we also did body measurements. My husband really only has a small tummy to work on where I have everything to work on. =( So far he has lost 2 1/2 inches and that was all from his waist and I lost a total of 2 inches combined. For some reason I gained an inch around my waist imagine that lol. Go figure! Maybe I measured wrong the first week?
I’m feeling very confident about our changes this year and can’t wait to share our continued success and struggles every step of the way.
Thanks for stopping by and hope you come back next week to see our progress.
