Closing In

Originally posted 6/2/2010

I am very happy to say that I lost 19 pounds my first month of weight loss! It has been difficult, and there were times that I strayed...but just briefly.I was really worried about this past week. I stayed so busy, and when I had a free moment to go to the track, it would start raining. I tried to do my workouts at home the best I could, but my beautiful daughter thinks she needs ALL of my attention ALL of the time.Memorial Day weekend was spent with family and friends (my fave) and LOTS of food. I tried to stick to my calorie budget, and did well on Saturday. Sunday, however, was a different story. I blew it out of the water! No prob. I'll just be sure to work out extra hard tomorrow. Negative Ghost Writer....I came down with a stomach bug. GROSS!!! I'm not feeling 100% yet, but I'm well on my way. Hopefully tomorrow will be better, and I can return to my daily routine.I've decided that I'm going to start measuring myself as well as weigh. And, I'm going to take pictures...or rather have my hubby do it. I want to see what other people are seeing. Because the numbers only paint part of the picture...Can't wait to post some updated pics!
