I didn't blog an update last week after my August 16 weigh-in so I'm going to catch up both weeks today. Regardless of my weight the best part of the last two weeks is that I already feel better physically. I'm not exercising aggressively or even moderately at this point. I'm walking more, lifting light weights at home, and most importantly eating better. I'm keeping my calories low and my food quality high. I am (mostly) avoiding junk, eating lower carbs, and having at least one salad per day. My splurge is on Starbucks chocolate chip cookies. I know I had at least 5 this week. Free and discounted stuff plus triple stars as a partner; that's challenging. I'm going to a cycle bar on Wednesday and see how that works. With the added weight in the past year I notice more joint aches in my knees and ankles. I do want to get back into running at some point, but that's about 20 pounds from here.
Here's my numbers for the past two weeks:
