Fruits and Veggies taste good, but...

my weight stayed exactly the same this week. I was
told not to be too concerned, that with the transition
my body had some extra adjusting to do. We will see.
I have enjoyed the variety that f/v have added to my
meals. I had forgotten how good green beans taste.
Hopefully next week will be a better week for weight
loss. I will let you know.

The Official 12 Week Total Is...

Drum roll please - 42.3 pounds! That is right, I have
lost 42.3 pounds in the last 12 weeks. I have a long
way to go, but I am off to a good start.

I am an official Healthy Solutions girl now, and to
celebrate I went out with some friends and had
a baked potato and small salad for supper. It
taste so good. After supper I went to Kroger
and bought fruits and vegetables for the rest of
the week.

Last week I didn't get in as much exercise as I would
have liked, so this week I plan to bump it up a little.
I am going to try to make sure I walk and ride the
bike everyday this week. Last week there were
days when I only did one or the other.

Thanks friends for being so supportive. You all
have been such a blessing to me and I know I
can count on your continued support in the weeks
and months to come. See you soon.

-4.9 This Week

Wow, even I am amazed with this weeks loss. I thought I had done okay,
but I never dreamed I would loose 4.9 pounds. This officially brings me
over the 40 pound marker and I have one more week in "core". I am
going to bump up the physical activity this week by riding the bike in the
morning and walking in the afternoons to try for another good weight
loss to end my core program. After next Monday night I will be transitioning
to healthy solutions and adding fruits and veggies to the shakes and entrees.
I am sooooooo excited. I have been "planning" menus in my head that
include vegetables and/or fruit at every meal. Anyway, I will let you know
how that goes later. I am off now to walk with a friend and burn more calories.

-3.4 This Week

This brings my total weightloss in 10 weeks to 36.4 pounds.
Tonight our leader told us that our class has hit the "gold"
standard for physical activity (PA) calories burned in a week
for two weeks straight. She said that is a first for a Jonesboro
HMR class. Last week I burned 3700 calories - my largest
burn in a week so far.
For anyone wondering about the decision I have been trying to
make, I have decided to transition to Healthy Solutions when
my core class is over. I should be adding fruits and veggies
in about 3 weeks. Thank you to all who have prayed about
this decision for me and encouraged me as I struggled to make
the decision. I believe it is the right decision for the summer
anyway because it will allow me to add so much variety to
my program. If at any time Healthy Solutions is not going
as well as I want, I can switch back to Decision Free.
I still have a long way to go, but I am off to a really good start.
Please hang in with me and keep the encouragement coming.
I need all I can get. Thanks!!
