One of the things I love most right now about this journey is that my husband, Ben, is taking it with me. It is so much easier when you have a partner. When I dont feel like working out he encourages me to do it. He has lost over 30 pounds so far and as of last Friday I have lost 16. I actually think its more than that because a few weeks ago our other scale broke and we had to get a new one and it weighed us a little heavier than the other one.... but honestly the numbers dont matter to me that much. I am seeing changes in my body and all my clothes are fitting looser! I am positive I've went down a size in jeans but I want to wait until I go down another size before I buy any new ones, It can get expensive buying clothes while you are in the process of loosing weight.
I mentioned using myfitnesspal and the calorie goal it set me for to lose 2lb per week is 1490. When I do cardio and add that in the calories go up but I dont usually eat them. When I first started the calories it gave me was 1550 so it has went down.. I guess the more you loose the less you get to eat. LOL Overall though I'm just trying to make good healthy choices. I just recently over the weekend got some good vitamins for Active women. So I am taking 2 of those each morning and we also got some protein powder to help build our lean muscles and replenish our bodies after workouts.
Tomorrow I will talk about how we are exercising and how much I've improved in that aspect already!!
