I’m joining Kris at Weird Unsocialized Homeschoolers to help hold each other accountable and being transparent.

Transparency – In August of 2008 I began to attend 12 step meetings for overeating, weighing in at 240 I think could have been higher. Oh so difficult, but by April of 2009 I had lost 60 lbs. In 2010 we moved and the weight started to creep up then a radical hysterectomy with stage 4 endometriosis and even higher.

After drug therapy of 6 months to reduce the endo gained 30lbs.  Lost the weight from that so down to 195 and it has started back up again 207 after a busy summer with little planning food wise and sporadic exercise.

What I’m working on….

  • Making peace with exercise and doing things I love – walking, tap dancing and bike riding.
  • Making fun exercise a priority 5x a week at least 30 minutes. My husband is doing this with me so he is running.
  • Logging my food every day with my fitness pal.
  • Planning meals that are filled with veggies.
  • Drinking plenty of water 1/2 body weight.

“I’m  going to keep making good choices and plugging away.”  Kris makes this statement and it is so true.  Consistent effort will bring about results.   I made progress this week in more than one area.

What I did right last week:

  • Had so much fun with the exercise last week.  Had a couple good rides on my bike and even did a 10 miler (58 mins) by myself breaking our previous time of 67 minutes.  Exceeded my weekly goal of 220 minutes
  • Made progress on reporting in each day.
  • Made a healthy meals for our family
  • Increased the amount of water
  • Lost 2.2lbs

My goals for this week:

  • Preparing ahead some of the items on our menu – veggies, whole grain rice and salad fixings.
  • Taking dinner with me on Friday night so I don’t need to eat out.
  • Continue to work on reporting each day.
  • Continue to get enough water every day.

I’m inviting you along – even if only to hold me accountable. Each Monday, I plan on updating my blog. If you don’t see an update, please ask me how I’m doing.

Do you have a successful weight loss story?  Do You need to lose weight?  Please share your story.
