My 50 Pound Weight Loss Adventure Progress Update

Tuesday, November 08, 2011

10 pounds down, 40 to go! I started my current streak on June 1, 2011 - and today I reached Day 160, and am happy to have finally crossed the 10 pound mark!! Being over age 50, the pounds are not coming off quickly, to say the least, but I am never going to give up - even if it takes 1000 days! I feel better, have more energy, and my clothes have gotten baggy - and that's all so much FUN! The going was very slow at the beginning as you will see by my chart below, but has actually speeded up in the past 60 days and that's encouraging!

- long-term: 135 - I want to FINISH what I started here in 2005!
- short term: The NEXT POUND will be my short term goal...I must just check them off one at a time.

1. Plan ahead each evening for the next day - budget out my calories in advance - on paper, on purpose - every calorie has a name before the day begins!
2. Eat within my calorie range everyday
3. Eat 5 fruits/veggies every day.
4. Drink 5 pints of water
5. Exercise between 30 - 60 minutes a day


Starting Weight: 185.5
Day 10: 184.5
Day 20: 185
Day 30: 183.5
Day 40: 184
Day 50: 184.5
