7-16-12 Update 269.9

Well, it’s been one week since I started treading every day. I missed one day completely because of work commitments and I did only the morning session on 2 days. Otherwise I maintained my 2 10-minute sessions pretty well. As a matter of fact, I bumped them up mid-week to ten and a half minutes and yesterday I did 11 minutes. I know it’s no great shakes to many but it is momentous for me.

I weighed in today at 269.9 – exactly 3.5 pounds lower than last Monday. I did indulge in Chinese takeout one night with leftovers the next day. And I had a few regular beers to celebrate my husband’s new job, which he started today. So all things considered, I am satisfied with where I am.

This week I am planning to just continue what I am doing: go slow and steady, keep exercising and try to make wise food choices. I am not trying to win a race or hit a deadline. I just want to feel better. And currently since I only own two pairs of shorts and four shirts that fit, I have great motivation to lose a few more pounds. When I can fit in my older clothes, it will feel like I’ve gotten a whole new wardrobe!

I'm so happy for you! I'll bet that the better sleep w/the CPAP has a lot to do with how you feel.

Yes, Marie Anne, the CPAP has everything to do with how good I feel. Before I had absolutely no energy and couldn't even consider trying to exercise.

Thanks Magena! It has been a long road and it stretches out even longer up ahead but that's ok. It's what we do with the journey that matters most.
