Just over ten years ago I started blogging about losing weight, I started on what has now transformed into this blog, my original blog everything and anything featured not only things about me and products I loved, but I also shared my weight loss journey. Eventually I decided to start a blog focused on just my weight loss, but found I had over done it and eventually I shut that blog down.
I have now ended up gaining much of the weight I had lost back and find I once again want some accountability, so I am going back to my weekly weigh in post and sharing with you my journey. I found when I stopped writing about this subject this blog seemed to lose what I hope you all come to read, a blog with personality, I want to bring more of me to this blog and I hope this helps you get to know me more.
I also invite you to join me in my journey and feel free to post your weight in the comments each week, if you own a blog share your own weigh in post if you do them!
I do want to tell you I am not starting today, I started Monday and have been working out every day. Monday I did two workouts, I work out at home I do Zumba on my WII, and yes it does work, that is how I lost 80lbs before and I enjoy the workout. I also spend some time shoveling snow. The rest of the week I just did Zumba, except for yesterday where I skipped Zumba and spent over an hour shoveling snow from my driveway and sidewalk, yes I hand shoveled and got a great 62 minute workout in where according to my fitbit I also burned over 600 calories!
As I said I started my workouts on Monday, I also weighed myself on Monday, though at that time I didn’t plan on doing weigh in post and did not take a picture. I wish I would have because I lost a lot more then I thought I would lose.
Monday: I weighed 290
Today: (yes that is a cat in the picture)
I was really surprised that I lost that amount. Though I have been doing things that they say to do when trying to lose weight, and I’m going to share those tips with you in another post. I am really excited to see what next week brings!
Don’t forget if you want to join me on this journey to post your weight in the comments or link to your weigh in post!
