My starting weight was about 20 lbs over my goal weight. My plan was to lose the first 5 lbs by reducing the amount of junk food I eat.
If I'm totally honest, I've had a "cheat meal" more often than I'd like to admit. Here is a list of the unhealthy foods I've had:
- Pepperoni Pizza + Soda
- Biscotti + Brownie Brittle
- Red Robin Banzai Burger
- Sweet Potato Fries
- Steak Fries
- Red Robin Cookie Magic Shake
- Starbucks Iced Caramel Macchiato
- Thai Iced Tea Boba + Pearl Milk Tea Boba
- Happy Hour - Strawberry Daiquiri + other drinks
And that's just what I can remember!! Despite all this, I am now 17 lbs away from my goal weight!
I'm attributing the weight loss to the amount of walking I've been doing recently. I started using fitbit to track my steps and it has really helped motivate me to move more!
Here's my fitbit summary for the week as of this Thursday morning:
This upcoming week is going to be tough with Memorial Day weekend, but I'm going to try to be a bit healthier! At least I'll try to avoid the free soda in the cafeteria!!
