This Week -2.4 Pounds
Total Loss 24.6 Pounds
Some programs you can just start and be up and running. Calorie counting, eliminating processed foods, and eating more fruits and vegetables require knowledge, but it is knowledge that is easily available on the Internet. What I am learning about the Hunger Scale is that you learn as you go. After years of being out of touch with my hunger cues, I have been relearning to recognize those cues. In reality, what I did was more to avoid 8’s, 9’s, and 10’s (on a scale of 1 being famished and 10 being stuffed like at Thanksgiving). Hopefully next week I can provide better insights into this plan.
Most weight loss blogs are built around a weight loss goal. I have avoided this because “lose a bajillion pounds” sounded more like a hope than a strategy. But I’ve been plateaued and am looking for a little extra motivation, so here goes: My goal is to hit 50 pounds lost on the Pounds Off Playoff by Labor Day. That’s a little more than 2 pounds a week, so it’s a push, but doable. And I figure I will be a little more active in the summer, when I actually get a little time off and it’s not raining practically every day.
So, in honor of the World Cup, that’s my Gooooooooooooooooooooooooooal!
Do you have experience with weight loss goals?
