Smile I'll HUFF and I'l PUFF...

...wait! No I Won't!!

I have been counting calories, counting carbs, meshing carbs with protien. I have been drinking (a lot of) water, everyday. I have been exercising for an hour a day 5 times a week. In roughly 6 weeks I have lost 22 pounds.

But today, when I walked up the stairs to the break room at work. I did not huff, I did not puff, I did not stop when I got to the top to catch my breath so no one would see how out of shape I am (as if my size doesn't give that away!).

I am happy with the weight loss I have had so far, but not sounding like the Big Bad Wolf when I climb a single flight of stairs is a Major Victory for me!
Failing to plan...is planning to fail.

I remember the huffing and puffing too well! I was on the phone with someone as I was going up the stairs once, and they asked me (in a joking way) if I was a crank caller doing heavy breathing! Congratulations - it only gets better!

Oh, I had this realization the other day! I was at a friend's house, and you had to go up 3 little mini-flights of stairs to get to her bedroom, and not only could I walk up them without getting out of breath, I could run up and down them 2-3 times and STILL not be out of breath. 6 months ago, that would've killed me.

That has never happened to me before. It was right exciting!
5lbs ~5 times? Let's do it! One for every 5lbs lost until I get to where I wanna be.

Starting weight: 209 (2/20/16)
Current weight: 184 (4/24/17)
Goal weight: Somewhere between 155-165lbs
