|40 pounds lost!!! 😀|
It’s been a while since I’ve posted an update on my weight loss progress! In the days after I gave birth, I weighed in at 266 pounds. Since then, I’ve been getting healthy by tracking my calories each day (and not eating too much or too little), cutting back on sweets and fats (without giving up anything entirely), and attending an exercise class a few times a week! That, and enjoying a glass of wine every night after putting Troy to bed. Hooray FWDGF!!
And I’m proud to say that today, six months later, I weigh 226! I’m 40 pounds closer to my goal weight!!
For my height (5’3″), the highest weight in the healthy range of the national BMI chart is 140 pounds, so that’s my goal. That might sound low when compared to where I am now, but this isn’t a sprint – it’s a marathon – and it’s okay to jog slowly, even walk, as long as I finish. It’s incredibly important when you’re losing weight to keep your expectations realistic. I don’t need to lose this weight tomorrow, this month, or even this year. As long as every month has a number on the scale that’s lower than the month before it, I’ll be successful!
What are your current health goals?
