Weight Loss!

Well I havent reported back and had gained a few pounds but Im happy to announce that today I weighed in at 171.8 which is still higher than I should be at but its a loss of 2.4 lbs from last week!

This week I havent exercised a ton but I brought my lunch EVERY DAY and have drank lots of water as well. I have also tried to cut back on my sweet tea consumption as well.

Unfortunately I have inherited a cold that is kicking my butt now and we are heading to Atlanta for the weekend so Im hoping it will go away soon!

I had a gain today of 1.4 lbs (exactly what I LOST last week!) Im really not too bummed out because I know how much crap I ate eating in the cafeteria this week and with the fried chicken strips and cookies it didnt help. I need to get back to bringing my own lunch. I know I can do it I got me a new FB ticker and am all ready for it to start going down for good in the right direction.

Goals so I can come back to them as well...
1) Start back journaling (it really does make a HUGE difference)
2) get back to working out on a regular basis (at least 4X per week for at least 30 minutes)
3) try to eliminate/cut way down on fried foods and sweet tea
4) lose 1 lb per week and get into the 150's before Chrismas which would make me have a normal BMI instead of overweight for the first time in years and years!
5) tone up

Day Two

Day Two...

Much better day and my food was a little bit better too. Im trying to make small strides to eating better, losing the weight so these last 20 lbs will melt away

Ive been trying to get in some veggies and really try to analyze everything I eat. Today at lunch in the cafeteria I wanted some type of meat and the only option was fried chicken strips so I ended up eating only 1.5 instead of the 3 I could have eaten so again small strides....

Differences from yesterday...
Calories: 1960 - 1419
Carbs: 314 - 198
Fat: 56 - 47
Protein: 56 - 56
Sodium: 4265 - 3738

So much, much better but still lots of room to improve. I have it setup in sparkpeople and how much weight I want to lose and what calories and all it tells me and I was very close to stay in range except for protein and sodium was really high

Amounts it should be:
Calories: 1200-1500
Carbs: 163-236
Fat: 32-56
Protein: 60-127
Sodium: 2300

Success Never comes to those who quit...

Its at the top of my page and should be the motto of my life but it has gotten to where I really dont follow this at all. Finally getting back into the hang of tracking and realizing also what it does for you. I think Ive been in a bad slump with things. I hope I can really stick it out and focus on being healthy and getting back to my good habits instead of my "who cares the nutritional information I wont gain too much weight" so here is my food for today..not grand but its much better than what I have been eating thats for sure

Getting Better...

Well I guess its been almost a month and usually I guess when i dont post for that long it means Ive hit the bad part instead of the good part but I finally have found a better home in the good direction for a few weeks just been busy with school.

Weigh Ins and results...
August 15-174.8
August 22-172.4
August 29-171.0

So Ive now lost almost 4 lbs and am getting back into the groove of things with school being back in session.

Also does anyone else have a WiiFit? It really has some fun things and gets kind of addictive since when you use it for so long you get to unlock new games. At first I wanted to kick it when it told my how unbalanced and my real age but I know Im going to get better so my real age can go down!

Hope everyone had a fabulous Labor Day and thanks for checking in on me!
