Had to repost a correction with my math --- actually have lost more than I had figured out.
Well, I'm here to happily report that out of my 25 pound weight loss goal...I have now lost a whopping eight pounds! I'm so close to a ten pound loss that I can TASTE it!
Over the holiday gathering, my daughter Heather actually noticed my weight loss and made a nice comment. But, she's perceptive that way.
I've had a lack of appetite, so that definitely helps with the weight loss. But, I cannot believe that I actually lost weight over the Thanksgiving Holidays...this is probably a first for me.
If I keep going at this rate, then by Christmas I should be mighty close to that 25 pound weight loss goal. But, for today, since I have lost a solid eight pounds, I have 17 pounds more to meet my weight goal. But, having these several pounds gone do make a nice difference for me.
And what will I do once the 25 pounds is gone? Well, then I will start on my next lump goal of another loss of fifteen pounds. That should put me at a weight that will give me leeway and it will change my clothes sizes significantly. I'm sure those last fifteen pounds will be extremely stubborn to remove, but I am ready to take them on!
Taking off the weight slowly has been rather easy. I eat a variety of foods; I really do not deny myself, but I do watch the portion sizes. I figure, my frame is already petite, I just don't require that much food to keep going, so I better adapt to the proper nutritious intake required for my small-frame.
Little changes do indeed make big differences!
