I mentioned on Friday that I started working out.
I hit the awesome elliptical machine each morning for twenty sweaty minutes. Then, I met hubs at the Y twice. We'll try to meet three to four times a week, but only got it in twice last week.
I have a goal. I want to lose 40lbs by June.
Two years ago, hubby and I did a great job of losing weight. Then we went on a cruise and it was over for me. I got lazy again. Over the next year, I gained nearly all of my weight back.
So I'm back on it.
I must relose this weight and keep it off this time. This is ridiculous!
In 2007, I only used my old elliptical. No weights. No variety. Just the elliptical. And I loved it. It worked for me, so I was happy.
This time around, I'm trying a little variety. A stair climber. A treadmill. A stationary bike. A little weight training. Muscle burns more calories, so maybe I'll lose the weight faster this time.
This past week was the first full week of my journey. I'd lost a couple of pounds the week before, but I ate what I wanted to eat for New Year's Eve and NY Day, but I still managed to be down 1lb.
So I wanted to share that last week I lost 4.5lbs!!! My total for the year so far is 5.5lbs. I'm pleased as pudding: 60 calorie, sugar-free, Jello pudding, that is.
I've thought about hosting a weight-loss blog...and allowing other authors so we could all post about our journey in one place. You wouldn't have to give your weight, cause I'm definitely not sharing that, but we could all post our loss for the week and encourage one another.
So let me know if you have any interest in being a part of that project and I'll get it started if there's enough demand.
If you have set any such goals, I hope that you are encouraged, motivated and that you have a great week of it!!!
