Two Month Mark

The scale is my friend.  I made my goal of twenty pounds in two months.  Lost that is.  I can hardly believe it.  I officially weigh less than Adam now!
Last Friday night I hurt my back at the gym.  I thought I would be down for at least a week.  But by the third day I was feeling like my old self so I went back to the gym for an easy workout.   John thinks it's because I am in better shape.  Just one more reason to stay in shape.
My end goal is get back down to 150 lbs.  As of today, I only have 13 more lbs. to go!  I hope to lose five of that by November 16th. :) 
I think I can!
Here is my current game plan.
Go to the gym four times a week doing cardio and weight lifting.
Eat 1200-1400 calories a day.
Drink plenty of water.
Take vitamin supplements.
Eat lots of fiber and vegetables.
Avoid white bread and sugar.
Indulge once in a while with a homemade brownie or cookie.
Continue to eat my all time favorite snack-- 10-12 almonds with 1/8 cup dried cranberries at least once a day.

  15. This sounds like a great balanced plan, and congratulations! Make sure you're eating enough (including healthy fats and proteins) that you don't make yourself sick, but like I said, this sounds pretty balanced. And I'm so glad you're allowing yourself the occasional special treat!
