Guess what happened when I abandoned my little blog here?
I gained my weight back.
How much you ask?
All of it. Plus 1 pound.
As far as I can tell, it happened because I left the blog world, thinking I had attained my goal weight, was looking pretty great, and was just overall happy in life. Know what happens when you're happy? You eat. A lot. Then you get unhappy because you went back into a size you swore you would NEVER go back to.
Then you have routine blood work done and realize your cholesterol is at a scary level. WAKE UP CALL!!!
So I'm back to blogging, off Weight Watchers, and onto a new plan. I'm using the My Fitness Pal free app so I can use it on my iPhone and on my iMac at work.
So far, I've lost 4.8 pounds in about a week. I'm sure that's just the "shock the system" loss. When starting most plans, most people lose 5-8 pounds in the first two weeks.
But it's easy to track and it is keeping me in control of what I eat. My goal is low calorie (obviously, since it limits me to 1,200 a day), low fat, high in whole grain. This should get the ole lipids where they need to be.
So I'm back and plan to be better than ever!
First goal: 10 pounds off by June 30th.
Let the journey begin (again...for the third time...)!!!
