Thought it was about time I started a progress page for me..
I guess it hasn't felt like progress up til now - but today I couldn't resist and weighed myself and I finally saw double digits on the scales again
yay me! What a beautiful sight!
I think back to a couple of months ago and I could barely swim 5 laps of the pool and a 20 minute walk left me puffed..
Now I'm doing 20 laps of the pool every day and 3.2klms walking every other day.
Dietwise, I'm not doing terribly badly either.. I heard someone say a while back that you crave the foods you eat.. It made sense at the time (even though I didn't think I'd ever stop craving fat and sweet stuff) .. so I started eating mainly fruit.. pigging out on mangos and apples and sultanas.. and now that's what I crave..
(It's probably because of the high sugar content and I'm going to end up getting fat on fruit! - that'd be just my luck)
So now I'm introducing vegies as snack food too.. I rarely eat vegies.. so I've been cutting up carrot and celery and cucumber sticks and leaving them in a bowl on the very middle shelf of the fridge, so that I feel perfectly okay about going to the fridge and 'grazing' because I'm grazing on what I'm supposed to be eating more of anyways.
It seems like such a simple formula, doesn't it? .. Eat right and exercise.
That's really all we've got to do to lose weight - I've just got to keep at it. . Why the hell didn't I do it years ago?
Oh well.. There's no stopping me this time.
