New Numbers

The past two days have been emotional.  But life goes on, as they say, and I have a promise to my Aunt that I’m going to work my hardest to keep!  So yesterday, even though I felt I could have done anything else, I got on the elliptical and did my hour.  I ate healthily, albeit less than what I should.  Today I walked for 40 minutes, and am trying a new recipe.  Things will get better.

I saw new numbers both yesterday and today.  I’m hoping to continue to see new numbers, and pray that I don’t fluctuate like I did last week.  Yesterday I saw 202.9, and today I saw 202.7.  This weekend I will be seeing my soon-to-be father-in-law, and I’d like to tell him that I’m down 19lbs from when I started.  I know he is disappointed in my lack of job right now, but maybe this will off-set it, when he sees how hard I am working on myself.

I’m starting to see my sides tuck in a little more, which is giving me a more hourglass shape.  I’m not quite sure yet if that is what I’ll be at goal, but one can hope!  From what I understand it’s the most desired body shape, so I’m looking forward to seeing it.  I could also be a rectangle/brick shape (I really hate those terms for it), which also wouldn’t be terrible.  Those two body shapes give a lot of versatility in clothing, so…yay!

Happy Dance!

I Worked out for an hour on the elliptical, and my fitbit adjusted 273 calories, so my NET calories for the day was 742.
