I guess it’s been a while since I said much about the weight-loss/fitness plan. Let me start off by saying THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS INSTANT GRATIFICATION where weight-loss is concerned. Fitness is almost the same.
Sorry for all the shouting, but it took me about 10 years to pack all this weight on and I really need to get it through my thick head that it ain’t all gonna come off this Summer!
However, I am seeing progress. I started my simple plan on April 26, 2009. The plan is just to exercise using the Walk Away the Pounds DVD as much as I can without causing injury. I am currently doing the 2 mile walk 3x a week.
The only dietary change I have implemented is I have given up processed sugar. And I have cheated on that one several times. I keep giving it up again, right away.
Now, for the PROGRESS!
- My ankles are not chronically swollen.
- My energy is at least tripled.
- I have lost 11 lbs. One of those is since Monday, yeah, 2 days ago.
I have been rather inconsistent with both the exercise and the sugar. I’m very encouraged that I’ve had impressive progress even while being so lackadaisical about it.
This week I determined to start being more diligent with both. Also, I started reading Sugar Busters to find out what else I need to change.
I am so happy to have more energy. The whole family has noticed and it just makes such a big difference in our lives.
