I Have Lost 24.4 Pounds

I see that it has been several months since I last updated No. Calories Needed – so here goes.

I have (once again) started losing weight.

My first goal is to lose a total of 80 pounds.  I am down 24.4 pounds.

I re-started my weight loss (once again) June 1.

I hit my highest weight – ever- back in March.  I got a little freaked, lost about 10 pounds, lost motivation, gained 5 pounds back, lost 3 pounds, gained 7, and so on, and so forth.  Such is my life when it comes to losing weight.

So, on June 1, I decided to try, one more time, to shed the pounds.

I lost 10 pounds in the first week or so (which was, most likely, water weight) – but I stuck to my a very vigorous workout schedule – and I am down 24.4 pounds.

Basically, I am eating a lower-carb diet and doing a lot – and I mean a lot – of walking.  I am averaging 8 miles per day – and on some days I’m walking as many as 12.

I have also started the T25 program – and I’m doing C25K.

So, yeah, I’m working super-hard and I’m super-focused.  I waited the entire month (almost) before blogging, because I want to be sure that I’m actually sticking to something for more than a week before I wrote about it.

Thanks for checking out the site.  I know I’ve been here before – believe me, I know – but, there’s no time like the present to “start over” – so here I go.

Be blessed.

 

 

Back To The Beginning

I have been here before, so I’ll skip all of the “what’s been going on since the last time I posted” stuff.  Instead, straight to the details -

Last year, I managed to lose a total of 15 pounds, which was awesome.  This year, I plan to be more focused and lose even more.

Tomorrow, which is actually today, because I’m typing on Sunday, but publishing on Monday, I will re-join our local gym.  I really have missed the gym, but the budget really hasn’t allowed for much wiggle-room the past two years.  This year, I’ve made a goal of tightening my belt, literally and figuratively.

I like going to the gym…

Well, I like BEING at the gym.  Going, not so much.  But, once I’m there, I’m there!

So, my plan is to swim a few laps, hit the old treader, and really stretch.

It’s cool to be back to blogging.  For a variety of reasons, I’ve been away, but now I’m back.  You rock!
