My Weight Loss Journey – Week 41

I have been determined on this journey that I will not treat it like a diet, so that means that occasionally I'm entitled to eat a nice dessert. My only concession is that if I'm making it myself I try to cut back a bit on some of the sugar and fat in a recipe if possible. Last week I decided to try my hand at a slightly lower calorie apple crisp. I also made it in an individual serving size so that I wouldn't be tempted to overeat.

My Weight Loss Journey – Week 40

Wow! I can hardly believe it's been 40 weeks since I started my journey. Part of my motivation at the very beginning was to lose some weight before my cruise coming up in February. I honestly was not sure how successful I would be, but I figured every little bit helped, so even though I still have over 50 pounds to go, I'm thrilled with where I am now

My Weight Loss Journey – Week 37

My goal last week was to reach or pass my next milestone of 75 pounds, and I'm so happy to report that I passed that milestone! I lost 3 pounds last week for a grand total of 77.2 pounds! My next personal goal is to reach 200 pounds, I'm only 7.8 pounds away from that milestone, and I'm hoping that I can reach it by Christmas. That's six weeks to lose just under 8 pounds. If I can stay on track I should be able to make that goal.

My Weight Loss Journey – Week 36

I'm a bit late this week, but I have great news, I’m almost to my next big milestone! When I weighed myself on Monday morning, I was down another 1.5 pounds for a grand total of 74.2 pounds. That’s right, I am less than a pound away from 75 pounds! My goal this week is to keep myself on track and make that milestone by next week.
