Week 1 Report
I did not meet any of my goals from last week. In fact, this picture pretty much sums it up:
But, surprisingly enough I managed to lose a pound.
- Last Week’s Weight – 216.0
- Week 1 Results – minus 1.0
- Current Weight – 215.0
- Total Loss – 8.0 lbs
How did you do? Please leave a comment saying if you met your goals Yes/No for entry into the weekly drawing.
Comments will be open until Wednesday.
My Week 2 Goals
My personal life is very stressful right now and I have been soothing my emotions with food. Carbs release a hormone in your brain that increases happiness (can’t remember if it’s dopamine or seratonin), so eating has been clinically proven to affect your brain chemistry. And I’ve been relying on food to help get me through day to day.
Good long term strategy? No.
But with all aspects of my life having some sort of stress – marriage, parents, children…plus a new job, I’m frankly just impressed I haven’t crumbled. So, I’ve allowed myself to indulge in food, but that leads to my pants getting tighter, my stomach getting softer, and my resultant self confidence getting smaller.
I need every ounce of emotional strength I can get right now, so this week’s goals are to do the things that help me feel better about myself.
- Exercise 3 times.
- Lose 1lb.
