This is my first official weigh in day, after the starting weight of course, and I weighed 200.0 lbs! That means I've lost 6 lbs already! Who'd a thunk it, diet and exercise actually do work. Now my next major milestone will be losing 4 more pounds to get me out of the obese category and into the overweight category. That word, obese, just sounds so awful. As it should, I guess. We shouldn't delight at the word that was chosen to indicate that you're so overweight your health is at risk. That being said I can't wait to no longer be considered obese.
I cycled last night as I said I would. This post pushed me to do it and get through it and be proud of myself and the fact that I had a body that was capable of biking those 20 miles a day. I've cycled 105.4 miles thus far, only 194.6 miles to go to reach my goal of 300 by the end of the month (hopefully sooner with the holidays and all). Here's a pic of me on my bike last night:
After cycling I had a great low calorie dinner. It was 350 calories total and it tasted good and was plenty of food and I even had room for some frozen yogurt afterward putting me at a total of 1,455 calories for the day. I've always had trouble cooking fish. It always tastes too fishy for me and I can never seem to make myself eat more than a few bites. At restaurants, though, I always love fish and think it tastes great, it's just cooking it myself that I seem to have issues. Anyway, so I found these frozen pre-seasoned fish fillets that are only 80-100 calories a piece and I actually liked it. So that's definitely going to be a new staple in this house to get me to eat more fish. Here's a picture of my half eaten dinner from last night:
I also wanted to show you the HUGE box of oranges I got yesterday, plus the few oranges I had gotten when I went to the grocery store. I swear I'm not a lush, the wine in the background is from a get together we had on Thanksgiving where everyone seemed to bring a bottle of wine and no one seemed to drink much, lol. Although I'm not complaining about having it on hand.
Last, but certainly not least, here are a couple better close up pics of the puppies from my camera. My camera on my phone just didn't do them justice.
