Well, it's been one week, and I'm down two pounds. I didn't get in the work outs I had planned (only two resistance) and 1.5 walks (one was only a mile, the other probably about 2.5 miles.)
However, I think my diet was probably on the better side. I had some salads for lunch and dinner, and desserts were kept to a minimum (only a few). In addition, my snacks during the afternoon consisted mostly of nuts -- which I am told are healthier than Flaming Hot Cheetos (yeah, I don't believe it either).
So, I'm down to 212.5 lbs from 214.5 lbs. My initial goal is 200lbs. I guess we'll just have to wait and see if I can keep this up.
How about you? Anybody want to join me in my efforts to be healthier? If so, leave me a comment!
