WI Week 2

Another loss! YES!  My new weight is 321.6, a 1.6lb loss.  A total of 5.8lbs in the past two weeks.  I have two weeks to go to meet my first mini-goal of -10lbs.  If I can get a loss on Thanksgiving week, I can do anything!  Woo Hoo!!

I was doubting myself yesterday, but I pulled it off.  I am so excited.  I am feeling alive :)
My plan for weight loss is not to overwhelm myself so much, as I have done in the past.  It was always go big or go home.  Well, big was too much to handle with a new baby, work, etc, so I ended up just going home (or hitting the couch is more like it.)  I am really trying to make this a new lifestyle, so small changes at a time.  Slow and steady will win the race.  I am feeling good and am right on track.

The goal for this new week is to start putting in the effort for exercise.  I have really been coasting these past two weeks, just trying to get my portions under control.  Now that I have done well in that area, I can start incorporating more exercise.  Last night we went out for a quick 30 minute walk and if we can convince my visiting sister-in-law to watch Holly today, Daniel and I will hit the gym for a while.  I can't believe I am actually excited to go to the gym.  Who am I???  LOL!

Here is the math update:  (This is my first time pasting my excel spreadsheet.  I hope it works.)
