It’s been a great Sunday. You could say it was “WINNING!” Church this morning was particularly awesome and then we headed out to St. George Island to meet up with some friends to savor the last hours of Spring Break on the beach. It was windy, but the water was warm enough to swim and the it was a beautiful emerald. (I love Florida.) Anyways, I didn’t sleep well last night due to a combination of worrying about the weigh in and the fear of waking up late because of Daylight Savings. I was anxious to see if the week was better than I thought it was. It turned out alright! I was lying in bed when I heard Megan yell through the house “Nathan! I lost 2 pounds!” I’m so proud of her! She’s lost a total of 35 pounds! I’m so proud of her and she’s lookin’ fine! Then it was my turn. I stepped on and I got a pleasant surprise: I lost 2.9 pounds! Holla! I’m really stoked because it could have went either way. So since September 14th, my first post (almost 6 months to the day) I have lost 74.4 pounds and since I’m now at 282.6, I’m shooting to break 280 this week. It’s been a tough road to ho, but the hard work has really paid off and I thank you all for your awesome support. For those who read this blog and want to start their weight loss journey but a nervous, I challenge you this week to try a few simple changes. Drink water instead of Dr. Pepper, take the stairs instead of the elevator (4 floors is not that bad!) take a walk around your block, and really think about what you are eating. Try these small steps and see how you feel at the end of the week. These little steps are the ones that will make the difference and will ultimately set you on the path of your weight loss journey. Seriously, what do you got to lose?
Breakfast: I just had a wafflewich which was awesome (as always) and 5.5 points. After service when we were trying to race out of church, I snagged a left over muffin that Crystal made. It was so good and about 3 points.
Snack: We had to run to Walmart to get some essentials (diet coke and $3 thug sunglasses) and I got a big bag of pretzels to hold us over. Through out the day I ate about 4 points of pretzels. That was 40 pretzels too!
Dinner: After a hard day of beach bummin’ it up, we all headed back and got some dinner. We stopped at this place called The Pit that had a carnivorous pig on the sign. I was thinking it was going to be BBQ, but it ended up being this awesome hole in the wall grill. I had the grilled Mahi Mahi with a salad and a baked potato with a little butter. (The oysters on the half shell really looked awesome so I’ll have to get those next time.) As you can see, it was a huge chunk of fish and the salad was really good too. It was only about a 8 point dinner which is awesome.
Dinner: We had a 15 bean soup slow cooking at our house so I had a 3 point bowl. It’s awesome and Megan put the pot in some containers so we are set for lunches this week (Spoiler Alert!)
So today I got to 31.5 points which is awesome. I ate pretty well and had a blast today. It’s been a good day. Now back to reality. See ya tomorrow.
