So, I started my new lifestyle 4 weeks ago today, actually this very minute 4 weeks ago - on March 1st.
I am not sure what made me walk out that door on that March 1st and decide that I will walk daily - rain, sleet, (and even snow, in Austin, Tx - crazy) period. And, so far I have.
Moving and realizing I can walk farther and farther has been great. I even jogged to the end of my street this morning then did my normal 1.5 mile walk.
I have been eating proper foods and haven't cheated. WE went to a birthday party on Saturday, wow that scared me a bit, my husband had a piece of cake and I had one small bite of his and that was it. I have worked too dang hard all month to blow it now.
I am down 7 lbs total for my first 4 weeks and 3,5 inches down in my waist area. I think today I will do more measuring and then be able to check in a month to see where I am.
I did think I would have lost more weight, but I guess 7 lbs down is better than being 7 lbs UP.
I can tell I have lost inches, my clothes are very loose. I had jeans on the other day and showed my husband how I could pull them straight down without unzipping or buttoning them heehee. (I love how he just raises one eyebrow at me when I do stuff like that). hahaha
So a very small part of me thinks, why am I bothering, I will never loose the weight a very much larger part of me thing I really can do this.
One this I need to do is DRINK MORE WATER. ugh!
Thanks for all of the support and awesome knowledge ya'll share.
Here's to another 4 weeks!
