I hope you've all had a fantastic week and that you are getting to spend your weekend doing fun, healthy things with your loved ones.
I had a great week both physically and emotionally. I ate really well and did something to sweat every day. I did decide to make a change though as far as the plan I am following to lose weight. I had joined Weight Watchers last year and had great success. This time around I was not having the same success both on the scale and in the meetings. The leader this time is different than my last time around and this leader just didn't inspire me. Several of my friends have been talking about using myfitnesspal.com both online and the app so I decided to give it a try. If I liked it I would cancel WW and just use myfitnesspal (which is FREE btw). So Monday was a holiday and both Hubby and Hannah were off so we spent the day shopping and eating out. Not always a great combination but we made healthy choices for lunch and dinner, we walked a lot and I used myfitnesspal on my iPhone. I was in love with it from that first day. I find it so much easier to understand and track than WW and the whole concept of counting calories and exercise makes more sense to me than having to figure out what the points plus value is for every food and exercise.
Since I started on myfitnesspal last monday I have dropped several pounds, many inches and I have found my stride in tracking and exercising. So, here are the week's progress pictures and stats.
LBS lost - 4
Inches lost - 14.5 (!!!!!)
I don't know if you all can see the difference from week one to week 4, but I can definitely see a change in my body in these pictures. I have a long (long long long) way to go, but I am focusing on this one day at a time and I am seeing results. I am FEELING the results, in my attitude, my confidence and in my body.
Go out and be healthy loves!
