Happy Monday and Happy June to all of you! We're having absolutely gorgeous, hot (yes, hot for us) weather and it's not even summer yet. I just checked my weather information, and it's 81 degrees at 12:30. So that's hot.
The first few days of our weight loss challenge went very well; I got perfect points each day. Toward the end of the week things began to fall through, but I persevered and stuck with most of the points each day. I've found the easiest points to be no diet sodas and no sweets - I haven't even missed them . . . much. I don't like drinking water, so that part I had to force myself to do, and that was where I lost a point or two. Exercise . . . 5 out of 7 days, which is a huge improvement for me, and I already see and feel some good changes from getting almost daily exercise. Taking a vitamin is just one more pill, so that was easy. Eating 5 fruits and veggies each day? Goodness, I thought I ate more than I do! I missed a couple of days on that. I'm finding that the combination of good food, lots of water, and daily exercise are making me feel a lot better. Early in the week, when I was getting perfect points, I was losing weight pretty fast, but the end of the week put an end to that.
Here are our points for the week:
Wes - 40/56; 3 lbs. lost
Me - 45/56; 1.5 lbs. lost
Beth - 51/56; 0 lbs. lost (she doesn't need to lose any; she's doing this mainly to eat more healthy)
