Weight Loss Update June 2013

June 2013

September 2012

This is 305 days of My Fitness Pal, exercise, knee surgery, South Beach,
protein shakes, both GNC and Arbonne. If it might help me lose weight, I might have tried it in the last 305 days. I started tracking my food and exercise on August 13, 2012. The day after my birthday.
My original goal was to lose 100 lbs in a year. I was on track with losing 2 lbs a week. Then I hit a
plateau. I have averaged 1 lb a week so far. June 13, 2013, I have lost 52 lbs. I am very happy with that.
I have gone down 1 size in my clothing. But, I probably should have gone up a size before starting, so you might say I have lost 2 sizes. I still have a way to go, but so far I am pretty happy with my loss.
I eat healthy. I track my food, even if I eat too much.
I try to exercise 5 times a week. I cannot really say that I feel great. I always thought if I took some weight off, I would feel so much better, more energy, etc. So far, that has not happened. The surgery may have delayed that from happening. Or it may just be my age. I plan on keeping up the tracking on MFP and my exercise, past 365 days. My next update will be when my morning glory are blooming again!
