I was pretty successful with my goals and with starting to lose weight last week---5 pounds gone. Yay! Week 1 down. That is usually one of the most difficult, just getting started. The next week will be difficult also (not my first rodeo!), but once I start losing a little and noticing the difference in my clothes and start hearing some positive feedback I'll wonder why I waited so long.
So, I still want to keep it simple...
Keep daily food journal (can't believe how this helps), 1200-1500 calories
Walk 15 minutes a day, and add 15 more minutes for 3 days
Drink lots of water
Avoid sugar (my downfall)
Thanks for the support.
