As an update to my FitBit goals and losing weight, I have been so good I can’t even believe it. No thank you has become my new middle name instead of pass another slice.
My daily target is just around 1000 calories a day which I diligently keep track of. My walking target is 10,000 steps a day and I am easily getting to 7-8000 steps a day, a good portion on the treadmill and going up and down stairs preparing the guests rooms for company. The FitBit logs stairs as well as steps.
I’ve lost a full ten pounds already. I notice it, but yesterday with a gaggle of friends, no one said a thing. I guess that means it’s only noticeable to me, OR that people don’t want to say something like hey tubby, you finally losing weight? 🙂 The quickest way to tell you still need to lose weight is to have a iPhone Facetime or by accident, have the phone camera facing in, not out. Sh**, that’s scary stuff!!
In any event, I haven’t had a morsel of chocolate or anything sweet for that matter in weeks. Barely bread either. Once I get to a certain level of weight loss, I’ll slowly add in now-forbidden items so I’m not living a life of being deprived (note, I said deprived, not depraved).
The test of will is when I am on the road for almost three weeks in and around North Carolina, staying at hotels when not using my family-friends cabin in Lake Lure. I will have to have some NC BBQ, won’t I? You all can be my bugs in the ear, as I post, you can make sure I’m eating healthily.
Time to go for a long walk, but not off a short pier.
Hope everyone is enjoying this glorious weekend weather.
