Week 1

Down 2.6 pounds! Yay!!!
It's not the 10 pounds I was hoping for but I really didn't think I was going to lose anything so i'm way happy with that. I think my problem is that the TV show The Biggest Loser makes me think I should be able to lose 10 pounds a week.  But what I have to remember is that they have professional trainers and they are working out like all day long and have a kitchen stocked with healthy food. I did great working out last week but my diet still needs some work.
I did my walk Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Tuesday and Thursday I did some strength training and yoga. On Saturdays i'm trying to get Bobby to something fun and active with me. This week he chose to play games on the wii fit. That was pretty fun. I even went on a few walks in the evening with Bobby last week. I found it really easy to be more active.
Eating healthy does not come easy to me. It is so much easier to just grab a burger than it is to stay home and make something healthy. But, we went shopping on Friday and got some healthy stuff so I actually ate much better this weekend. I plan to do much better this week too. As long as I don't make another batch of brownies I should be fine:)
My goal this weeks is another 2.6 pounds.


  1. Great job Sharon! The eating healthy part is always the hardest for me too. I also have a Biggest Loser complex that makes me think I am failing if I am not losing massive numbers every week. Keep up the great work!

  2. Thanks Brittany. Good luck tomorrow. I will be thinking of you and Heidi all day:)

  3. Good for you. I have been struggling with my weight too. I joined myfitnesspal (free) and it really helped her me going. since I can use it on my phone it is super easy to input my food. pretty much anything you search for already has the calories listed and you can input exercise too. It helped me realize just how many calories I was eating. I also learned from watching extreme makeover weight loss edition that it takes 3500 calories to gain/lose a pound and your body naturally burns about 12 calories a day per pounds you weigh.after that I got into super workout mode and lost 15 pounds. It was over summer break, so I had the free time. Now that school started again I'm not doing so well. I even gained a pound back. Maybe your story will get me inspired again. I'll keep reading. Keep up the good work!
