End of Week One Weigh In #DietBet

I have been working hard all week at eating right, exercising more, giving up soda, and keeping my big butt off the couch. I’ve cut out all soda and junk food, I’ve reduced my portion sizes, and I have started exercising. {Walking on a treadmill at 2.8 MPH for 30 – 45 minutes.}

Since I don’t own a scale at home, I had to go back to my local Curves office to weigh in. Imagine my surprise when I noticed that the scale was 8 pounds lighter! That’s right! I went from 213 to 205. Awesome. That means I am just 1 pound away from meeting my DietBet goal, and I am that much closer to my overall goal.

bathroom scaleI have been very, very careful not to overdo anything: For the first time in my life, I am eating 3 meals a day plus healthy snacks. I’m drinking nothing but water. I don’t over exercise, and I’m continuing to take in more than I work off. I want to do this the right way.

I am convinced that giving up soda and sweet tea is what has helped the most. Not drinking 4 – 6 cans of Pepsi every single day has made a world of difference. Already I’ve noticed that my pants are getting looser, my belly doesn’t appear nearly as bloated, and I just feel better.

I’ve still got a very long way to go, but if I stick with the what I’ve been doing for the past week, I’m sure to get a great start on meeting my final goals for this year.
