I lost about 3 lbs last week, even with the birthday party on Saturday for my twins (one year old) and my niece (3 years old). I had some cupcakes, but I don't think I was overboard.
One things I notice by taking the oil daily is that I have less of a craving for breads. I don't feel the need to include it in every meal.
When I run on the treadmill, I set little mini goals to reach: 'Can i reach the 0.50 mark without stopping', 'Can I make it to 8:00 without stopping?'. My ultimate goal is 170lbs, but my mini goals are:
- Lose 12 lbs before our Family reunion in August (6 weeks from now). Goal is 260lbs
- Lower my waist size to less than 40 inches. (This indicates a factor for heart problems).
- Get down to 220 by December 31, 2008/ BMI < 30, so that I would be considered to be overweight instead of obese. (52 lbs in 28 weeks)
My brother who is two years younger than I called last night and we talked a little about our tests. I'm glad I could talk to him.
Tomorrow I have my Stress test at the Boulder Center for Sports Medicine. I'm anxious to talk to my doctor about all of the results.
I had the best Father's day moment on Sunday. My son Jon, is a brute and very physical but after a full day playing and late in the afternoon, he crawled up on me and fell asleep in my arms. That was really nice.
