I have been pleased with my progress in the last week. I feel as if I am making changes for life and thus they need to be sustainable. Nothing too radical, just small things that can become habit and make a difference. As I want my changes to last I am introducing just one or two new things a week and building on my previous changes, building a checklist for life if you like. Every day I will mentally check off all the tasks on my list until they feel second nature and just part of my life.
The first week I started to think about weight loss again I decided that my first step was to think positive and believe that I can lose weight. I really do believe it, God is walking with me and will help this to happen
Last week I set the goals to exercise a minimum of 3 times and to pray before I ate. I have done OK with the exercise and I have had 3 sessions using my walking DVD and I have certainly remembered to pray each day but not enough perhaps, I think I do need to try harder with that one.
This week I am adding 2 more to the list -
- Think positive, I can lose weight
- Exercise a minimum of 3 times a week
- Pray before I eat
- Drink a glass of water before I eat & drink at least 2 litres a day
- Plan my meals for the week ahead as I know it keeps me focused
So there we go, good simple stuff but things that make a difference and how have I done this week with regards to weight loss? I have lost 3lb and I am happy with that, I have cut down but not at all starved or deprived myself. So today I am sat at 235lbs or 17st 6lb. Here is to a good week..... for us all!
