Month One

Month one into my weight loss adventure down. Phew.

It’s been an interesting 30 days with a variety of changes but I’ve committed myself to a low calorie life style, tracking my activity on my Fitbit Flex and keeping up with my food/calorie intake using MyFitnessPal (MFP). What’s awesome is that my Fitbit and MFP link to one another. Each day as I’m active – my calories burned are added to my allowed calories so I don’t over eat and remain accountable. Best of all, I can eat whatever I want – in moderation of course.

In terms of exercise – I’ve been embracing the Spring weather Ohio is actually experiencing and taking my pups for walks. MyFitnessPal has a sister app – Map My Walk – that’s easy to use. I simply turn it on when I leave the house and it keep track of my pace, distance, laps, etc. AND – brace yourself for this awesome sauce – it synchs with MFP and my Fitbit. BOOM. How efficient is that?!

April has proven to be successful. I struggled no doubt and still am. But this month I’ve managed to wear two pairs of pants I haven’t worn in over two years, gotten on the scale and seen numbers actually decrease for a change and even broke into a decade of numbers I haven’t seen in a long ass time. I’ve already learned that I can’t eat the way I used to and when I do I pay some serious consequences. And while I am Egyptian – my stomach no longer is. I’ve had good days and bad days. Hell, I’ve even eaten my feelings. But I’m a month in, I’ve made progress and I feel good about the progress I’ve made.

Don’t get me wrong, I have a looooong way to go. It’s going to be a struggle but I know this is something I have to do. I’m taking it one day at a time, one pound at a time, one good food choice at at time…

I’m one month into my weight loss adventure and 10 pounds down.

      Thanks! I’m looking forward to that change and am already seeing some of it when I step out on my diet. :)
