The Regional Science Fair is in one week. Hannah and I are refining her presentation. She’s doing great so far.
To bring you up to date, I’ve lost 22.6 lbs since Dec. 3, 2012. I’m leaning more towards a vegetarian diet. I’m working out regularly. Many have encouraged me.
Thanks for visiting and reading the blog!
Weight = 206.8 (I’ve lost 19.2 lbs since 12/3/13!)
It works, if you work it!
Well, here are the photos. The first one was taken at the beginning of this science fair project. It was taken on December 3, 2012. I weighed 226 lbs. the second photo was taken this morning (Feb 13, 2013). I know weigh 209 lbs. I thought you might like to see my progress to date. I plan to keep on going. Using My Fitness Pal, planning my meals, recording what I eat, exercise, portion control it’s working!
If you have been following my blog for very long, you know this all started with my 3rd grade daughter’s science fair project – the effects of healthy eating and exercise on her 53 year old dad. Well, it’s time for her to creating her display board and then begin practicing her presentation skills. The science fair is on Wed., Feb. 27.
She has learned a lot. So have I. I’ve also lost a lot – 16+ lbs! And I’m not turning back.
I plan to keep this blog running. It’s had nearly 2,000 hits since Dec. 3. I’ve met some great people. I’ve found some very helpful articles. I’ve begun to follow a lot of resourceful folks/sites on Twitter. I’ve been encouraged. Did I say I’ve lost over 16 lbs?
Thanks for reading and sharing this blog. Thank you for the encouragement. I like this new me.
It works if you work it!
My back hurts. It’s been hurting for a couple of months now. I ended up in my doctor’s office this afternoon to see what he could do. It appears that I have a muscle that is inflamed. Our guess is that it is caused by my new office chair (we moved into new digs at work just over 2 months ago – right around the time my back started to bother me). But that’s not what this post is about.
My doctor’s nurse told me that she had seen the TV interview of Hannah and me. She also voiced her encouragement of my weight loss.
My doctor also remarked how happy he was that I was doing this. He said that my portion control and healthy eating choices coupled with exercise has been a smart thing to do. “You’re doing this right,” is what he told me.
I knew this, but it was great to hear from my doctor – the same guy that warned me about 6 months ago about my weight and blood pressure. He’s very happy with my results and where I’m going.
I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: it works if you work it.
Weight = 210.2 (15.8 lbs lost in 2 months!)
