I'm not sure if its my age or not but losing weight seems so much harder than it used to be! I have been eating 1100-1200 calories a day for three weeks. I count everything that goes in my mouth! I have stopped using my salt shaker completely. I have also switched to Splenda for my sugar. I have limited my wine intake to two glasses a week except last week, I slipped and had 4 glasses.
I am still loving the gym. I go 3 to 4 times a week and am now doing 45 minutes of cardio per session.
I think limited my sodium and sugar intake is the biggest thing I am doing for myself right now.
My daughters 17th birthday is tomorrow and she wants an oreo birthday cake so if I have a small slice, it just means that I need to work an extra 30 minutes at the gym.
I am 171 and just pumped to get out of the 170's! That is my first small goal.
I will let you know when I have accomplished it!!!
Have a great weekend everyone!
