No matter the plan... we all Blog to Lose!
So I have a few minutes and I want to share the results of my 60 days from July 1 to Sept 1st. I am not bragging, but I am pretty happy with my success.
I lost 22 pounds--exactly my goal--12 pounds in July, and 10 pounds in August by moving more, eating a lot more fruits and veggies, ,more lean protein, drinking more water, almost eliminating bread and sweets.
Inches lost in 1 month--from August 1st to Sept. 1st:
0.5" off my waist,
1.0" off my bust :(
1.0" off my upper right arm
0.5" off my tummy
1.0" off my upper right thigh
0.5" off my right calf
I do weigh and track what I am doing every day...and I wanted to show WHY I do this...I made a graph of my weight over that 60 days. It's crazy, up and down. But when I track I can tell periods when I didn't do as much exercise what it did to my weight. Also, If I only track once a week and I happened to weigh in on a day when I was up 2 pounds, it would be very discouraging. So I keep the chart below where I can look at it and not get too discouraged if the scale isn't cooperating. (I know, get a life, right? But I try to act as my own trainer)
That section in the middle was vacation--I didn't weigh in. I was very active walking, canoeing, biking, etc. (allowed myself some little york peppermint patties while the kids had s'mores ) and still lost 2 lbs
