My Public Display of Dieting – June 2017

RESULTS: Gained 4 pounds for a total loss of 22 pounds

I missed checking in last month because…well, I was going to say because I was busy, which I was. But honestly, I kept waiting for good news to post and it didn’t happen. Mostly because I didn’t really try – hahaha!

First we had my birthday celebration in March, then we ate some yummy things at Easter, then it was our anniversary and our anniversary trip in early May, then our two-week trip back home. So LOTS of extra eating and enjoying it and not trying to watch my calories much at all.

That being said, I DID write down everything I ate in the My Fitness Pal app. (I’ve entered what I’ve eaten every day for a year and a half now!) And I often had a protein shake for breakfast to start the day well…and so I could have Grand Traverse Pie Company pie for lunch every day. LOL!

Also, by the time we got to the last few meals of vacation (all the plane food from nearly 24 hours of flying), we were completely ready to go on a diet. On the first day home, our grocery shopping including about six different fresh vegetables! LOL!

So…here I am, overweight but FINALLY ready to hit the Restart button! YAY!

The scale said I weighed 177 pounds yesterday, or about 80 kilograms. To lose 50 pounds from my original high weight last January (2016), I wanted to hit 148 pounds, or 67 kilos. From today, that’s a weight loss goal of 29 pounds.

Okay, the line is marked in the sand now. 🙂 Time to dig in and work on getting to be my fittest and healthiest by my 50th birthday! That’s 9 1/2 months away.

I can do it!

How about you? How are your goals coming along? Do you need to hit the Restart button? You can do it! 😀
