One week down, and I'm feeling great! Tonight was our first team workout. Everyone worked really hard, and Mcyveton totally pushed us. It was humbling to run on the track because I Am super-embarrassed about my weight...and everyone could see me. Totally uncomfortable. But I pushed through, knowing that each time I see those same people, I will be smaller. Fitter. Healthier. I'm looking forward to being pushed out of my comfort zone and hoping that Mcyveton works us harder than I think I can handle.
Mcyveton told me that I would be sore this week. You know what? I'd rather be sore than fat.
I'm down 6 pounds this week. That was a great step in the right direction. Healthy weight loss....sustainable weight loss...is about a pound or two per week. I know that 6 pounds is not coming off each week. I'm okay with that (mostly). This is about a lifestyle change, not a fad diet.
A huge part of the weight loss is from actually logging every single thing that I eat and drink. I'm using a tool called My Fitness Pal. I have the app on my iPhone, so I can log wherever I am. It's also available online, which is convenient when I'm at work. I can also log in to the website when i meet with Mcyveton and show him the food log to see if he has any tips or concerns. It's a fantastic tool, and I highly recommend it!
Fellow Smallest Winners, we are ON OUR WAY to our best selves! Work hard this week. Not too hard, though. I'm all about the competition, and I fully intend to win this thing!! :)
