Health Journal 6-12-21

6-12-21Down another 3/10ths of a pound which is somewhat surprising since yesterday I ate some not so great foods health-wise. But I stayed within my calorie budget and exercised an hour and 15 minutes- both aerobic and resistant . I know the number on the scale is not the only way to measure success, but…More

6-10-21Somehow I the last 24 hours I’ve lost 3 pounds. I ate about 1900 calories yesterday. I must have gotten rid of a lot of water weight. Hmm. That’s about 5 pounds a week so far which is acceptable for my height and weight, but I’m still nervous I’m losing too fast. I’ll enjoy it…More

My Health Journal

One thing I saw on a YouTube video about weight loss was to journal my feeling about my weight loss journey. Using EverNote, I created a page for (almost) daily thoughts about my weight loss journey. I plan to post most of them to this blog. I may not post every one of them, but…More

The First Week

So, okay, I’ve gotten serious about losing 100 pounds. It wasn’t any great epiphany. A couple weeks ago, I visited the doctor. While I hadn’t gained back the weight from when I was my heaviest (around 320), I’ve been stuck at 300 throughout 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic. My doctor didn’t say anything about my weight,…More
