Some of my longtime followers may remember my weight loss journey back in 2009. Click HERE to read the beginning of the story. Well, needless to say, I didn't continue and have done a bit of back sliding. So, I am going to switch gears here and try to focus on my weight loss again and healthy recipes.
I'm going to put my weight numbers out here, because I think making it known will help me with this adventure, AGAIN. I started out in 2009 weighing 221 pounds. Yikes, I hate even thinking that number! After 14 months of Weight Watchers, I lost 71 pounds and got to my goal weight of 150. Weight Watchers is kind of unrealistic with their goal weights, so my doctor and I had a meeting of the minds and decided 150 was a very realistic number for me.
Fast forward to January 3, 2015. I weighed in at home on that day and weighed 185.6. How in the world did 35 pounds creep back on my body?! I was so aggravated with myself as the weight just kept piling back on the past 4 years. So, time to do something before I gain the entire 71 pounds back!
While I am a lifetime Weight Watcher member, I decided to try a different approach this time around. I am using the My Fitness Pal app on my iphone. Based on my information, the app has allowed me 1200 calories a day. Which seems realistic for me. I am finding the app very user friendly
as well. Also, a friend of mine through facebook started a little group for a few of us greyhound lovers. Mostly, it is a support group, diet hints, and recipes.
When I started this adventure, I decided I would give myself 30 days to see how it went. I am happy to report that as of January 30, 2015 I weighed in at 175 pounds. Down 10.6 since I started this re-adventure.
Today, I leave you with this quote from my dad...
