Weight Loss Journey: Seven Months In


Weight: I loss 1 pound for a total of 54.4 pounds lost. Seven months in and I thought  I would be a lot further into my weight loss journey. Now that summer is over it is time to get serious and be the weight loss maven that I was when I started!

Nutrition: I didn't follow the Dr. Oz plan and ate out a few days. I became obsessed with Panera Bread this week and ate the pick two sandwich and salad a few times this week. I also cooked some healthy meals like the Teriyaki Salmon with Garlicky Zoodles (recipe to be posted tomorrow!). I didn't do so good at night when I kept snacking on some candy my daughter got at a birthday party.

Exercise: I got a cut on the bottom of my foot from wearing flip flops at the park so I couldn't make it to the gym. I did get some good walks and play time at the park with my daughter before the cut. I recently got a pedal exerciser on sale and started using it this week. I also hooked up my old Wii and got active with the boxing and tennis. Both things don't compare to going to the gym but I tried staying active.

Last Weeks Goals: (None completed)
  • Go to the gym 3 times
  • Strength training 3 times
  • Modified Dr. Oz Rapid Weight Loss Plan
  • Take Vitamins and Probiotics
  • Increase FitBit goal by 500 steps and meet it each day

  1. Hey, you are still making progress and should be proud of yourself! I think increasing your fitbit step goal will help as well, especially because it will help you form a routine.

  3. Hey at least the idea and goal to get fit is on your TO DO list. Even if you slip up a few times at least it's on your mind and you are trying.

  4. Glad you're staying active despite the setback...there are so many activities that can be done outside the gym to keep you fit! And I agree...the veggie sandwich with 1/2 greek salad is sooo good!

  6. 54 pounds is nothing to turn your nose up at. This is a new lifestyle therefore time is ot a factor. How you feel is. WAY TO GO!

  7. Keep at it, you are making progress. Even if you just play tennis on the Wii is better than nothing at all.

  8. There are claims in several forums I found that Dr. Oz' advice are really not working. These are bold statements made believable because of his popularity. Good to know that you're staying active at the gym.

  9. If you're going to do anything, DO NOT follow anything Dr. Oz says. 1 pound lost is 1 pound lost. it is a victory in your journey. Don't put yourself down and use it to push you forward!

  18. My husband loves to eat out, so it's hard to stick to a diet here. BUT I know I could do it if I would be more motivated. The extra few pounds I've got from sitting at the computer too much are not making me very happy. ;) Good luck to you next week in meeting your goals!
