Day 1

Monday, May 18, 2020

We are slowly working on opening back up after the COVID-19 restrictions in my area. I heard on the radio that the average person gained 15 pounds while working/stuck at home. This is very sad. I participated in a 19 day challenge with my work peeps that had a different exercise each day that was either 19 reps; 1 minute 90 second hold or 19 minutes. I also gave up desserts and sweets for Lent. All of this was beneficial to my overall health but, I'm sad to admit that I didn't lose any weight. I seem to keep gaining and losing the same 5 pounds.

So, here I am again, starting a new plan. I really want to lose a total of 50 - 75 pounds. I know that it's more achievable when you break it down into smaller increments so I'm going to start with losing 10 pounds. My plan for this is to eliminate "whites". I know how difficult this is but I'm willing to give it my best shot. Only whole-grains and minimally processed foods will be consumed. I plan to exercise as much as possible, too.
Any encouragement/suggestions/tips are welcomed! Let's get this done.

    I need to get back on the band wagon also. So don't feel alone, that's why we are here, and have so many friends here for us. So lets do the first 10 pounds.

    Sounds like a good plan. You might fall back once in awhile but just keep getting up on that horse. I have gained three pounds of a Mother's Day and I'm proud that I lost one of those pounds. Keep up the good work. Thanks for sharing.

    Today is my Day 1 also. I'm one those people. 17 pounds gained. The extra stress I've been going through does not help but I know I can control myself only. I'm going for a walk right now! :)

    Thank you for the motivation!
