February 1, 2014: 229 Pounds

Well I met another goal with this morning's weigh in. That goal was to lose weight each month in 2014 and I was a bit worried that I might not do it even in the very first month. On January 1st I weighed 230 pounds, and as of last Sunday I weighed 231. Thankfully this morning the scale was down two pounds to 229. So that's a pound lost in January. I'll take it.

This week I was more active than I have been in months. Aside from the usual stretching and PT exercises at home, I went to physical therapy twice, biked at home a total of 24 minutes, and twice I walked 4 blocks outside with the dog. I tracked my calories on Sparkpeople and averaged 1544 calories and 149 grams of carbs per day. I am VERY happy to see the loss on that level of calories, because I have gained on 1500-1600 calories in the past even with more exercise. I hope the trend continues and I will be very happy if I can keep up my activity level or slowly increase it each week.

Feeling good! Thanks for the support.

Keep it up. Just take it two steps at a time (WHAT? THAT'S TWICE AS FAST AS ONE STEP AT A TIME! I DOUBLE-CHECKED THE MATH!)

Yeah!!! Good going, Lyn! I'm happy for you. :)

I'm happier on 1500ish calories but I need to keep under 100 g carb in order to keep the munchies away. I'm done trying to stick to 1200ish calories.

Glad things are better.

Be careful to do what they say. Sometimes these things happen and then we have to find a new way of doing things from that point forward.
