"Weight Loss Update"....

Saturday, June 12, 2010

Hello Friends, I hope you are enjoying your Saturday!...I wanted to check in with you all about this last week, & let you know my progress on the road to losing weight & getting healthier!...
Well, I am thrilled to report that I had a fabulous week!...I walked approx. 13 miles this week, I ate right, stuck to my point allowance & wrote everything down! ( which certainly does help!)
I still enjoyed frozen yogurt, grilled salmon ( many times) & lots of fresh fruit & veggies!...lots & lots of veggies!!! :)....I even entertained a group of dear friends for dinner, & ate everything they did...just planned for it!...& watched my proportions!

So off to Weight Watchers I went this morning & I had lost 2.4 lbs.!....I already feel thinner & have much more energy than a couple weeks ago!....
Now after my post last Saturday, I had many of you writing me the most supportive comments, with some of you deciding to join me in your own weight battles!.... which I find so incredibly nice!...So please write me & let me know how you too did this past week!...and if you too have any tips!......For me, it was eating "real" food, nothing processed!....I feel real food not only sticks with you longer, it also just makes you feel better all around!...and one other thing, I ate no red meat, chicken or pork...just fish!....It was a bit challenging, but something I have wanted to try for some time! Not yet declaring myself as a vegetarian, but headed in that direction! :)

So now we are off for a few days in Palm Springs!.....I am entering this second weight loss week with a renewed energy!...which comes from not only taking care of "me"...but having support & friends like all of you!.....
Have a wonderful week ahead!

Love, Heidi XO

(P.S. weight 270.2... loss of 2.4 lbs....(& still 5'8")

Hello did FANTASTIC! Good for you for sticking to it and trying something different (fish only) and eating lots of veggies. I admire your 'stick-to-it-ness' (probably not a word but it's the best I could come up with tonight). I on the other hand didn't do a dog gone thing! I ate about the same and didn't get on my treadmill or my Yoga mat (hanging head in shame). I'll try this again starting Monday. Have fun in Palm Springs..we'll be waiting to hear all about it when you get back. Take care...Maura :)

Way to go!!! Great job. I can't yet tell you how I did as I don't weigh in until Tues. But I'm thinking I'll have a loss.

I do need to get out and walk more. You inspired me to go tomorrow for a nice long walk.

Good for you!!!! Man, it's hard to get those pounds off when you live a busy life!!! I always feel so much better and have more energy when I take off some pounds!
Enjoy your get-away!

Heidi I am so thrilled for you!! Losing weight is HARD! Especially as we get older and that ole metabolism goes bizzirk! Even 1/2 a lb. is fab for me!!

Wishing you all the best and motivation! Hope you have a wonderful start to a new week and more "new" you! I bet you feel amazing!

You are doing a fantastic job - congrats on your weight loss. Losing weight isn't easy but you made it through the first week with excellent results. I will be following along on your journey because you have inspired me to get exercising and to start making more healthy food choices.

I was reading your post for Thursday and kept scrolling down to see what I have been missing. I love the idea on the side of your stove for "things' btw. But a special congrats to you for your commitment. I have been ignoring my own "issue". I'm 5'8" also... but no "negative" number. I would love to be able to say -2.4#s! Good for you!!!

Good job, Heidi....I don't weigh in until Saturday, but I agree with you that cutting out processed foods makes such a difference, especially in regards to energy level...Or at least that is what I am experiencing...

Have a great weekend...
