Weight Loss Wednesday

Well, I was expecting to be very disappointed when I stepped on the scale this morning. I haven't hardly even walked in the last week, let alone exercise. We have had most of our meals from fast food restaurants, or grabbed something from the grocery store that could be microwaved or thrown in the oven. I tried very hard to watch my portion size, and I ate the healthiest of what was available. (Except the night we had Dominos pizza, and I ate one Chocolate Lava Crunch Cake! But, once again, I didn't eat near the amount of pizza I normally would! The results:

I lost one pound this past week!

I couldn't believe it! It just goes to show how important portion control is! I've always known that you can loose weight without exercise, it just isn't as healthy for you...your body NEEDS as much exercise as you can give it. Obviously, with my back, good exercise is still a ways off, but I will start making baby steps. I will also note, that I wasn't running to the kitchen for snacks all day long either! That makes a HUGE difference. Ideally, the body should only be eating a small meal or snack every 3 hours or so. Any more, and you are overeating. I am looking forward to next week, and hoping I can get some walking in to help aid the weight loss, but it will have to be one step at a time, I do not want to be bed ridden again. I'm excited though, I know that getting all this extra weight off will help my back tremendously. This past week really made it apparent, just how important it is that I get the weight off and take better care of myself.

Now I have to try and prepare my house for company tomorrow without overdoing it! It will be a challenge!


  1. Congratulations!!!! You go girl:)

  2. Congratulations on losing a pound! That's awesome! I haven't exercised the last week like I usually do. I was dealing with ear problems at the end of last week (I think an ear infection). My ear is MUCH better now so hopefully I'll be back on target for my exercise by the end of this week or the beginning of next week.

  3. I'm glad you are feeling better Karen! Don't you overdue it either!

  4. YEah! Way to go and I hope you back continues to improve!

  5. Thank you Jen! I just hope it can make it through tomorrow. I know I'll need to go to the chiropractor again, but I really need to get the house clean tomorrow for dear daughters birthday party!
