When I weighed in yesterday, I was right on the brink of being 214 pounds. Remember when I went to Vegas I had gained four pounds, but lost two by the last weigh in?? So today is good news for me. I weighed myself this morning, as I do every morning, and I'm officially back to 214. So while yesterday I was only at a ONE pound loss, today I'm at TWO. Yee Haw! LOL
I have to admit that I have not exercised since I've been home, but I have just cut down the amount of calories I took in: 1200. It's been kind of hard. It's amazing what kind of willpower I have when I really want to do something. I tried to do the cold turkey route with the sodas, but I can't. What I have been able to do though is limit myself to one can per day. I drink half in the late morning/early afternoon and the other half at night. The rest of the day is all water.
I have been pretty hungry cutting down. With thyroid disease, I have to or I won't lose any weight. My metabolism is pretty much non-existent. It's funny, I've always gotten full relatively fast since my thyroid problems started, but even more so now. I figure I could probably really be losing more than this if I started exercising again. Now I just gotta stop being lazy! LOL
I just wanted to say thanks to all of you with all your support and encouragement. It's helping more than you know (especially when I hear about the weight loss because it makes me determined to lose as much, too).
