First job, weigh myself and see if I have really lost weight. Wheezeee yes and if I'm really good this weekend I feel I will make my goal for the end of this week of 9lbs. Yummy mexican hash for breakfast. I give some to my son and his girlfriend to try and they are really impressed and look through my diet menus and recipes. They then say they are going to do it with me in January to get rid of any weight they put on over Christmas.
I tell them the scales calculate BMI, fat percentage and hydration levels. I knew this but had forgotten how to set it up so I follow the instructions that came with the new scales. I already knew my BMI was in the obese range. In denial I always believed because I've always worked out that it wasn't an accurate reflection for me. I am mortified when the fat percentage reading shows as 47%. OMG!!! I am nearly half fat. That strengthens my determination to lose this weight and get that % into a better level.
I do a step aerobics video at home. I used to do this one regularly when the kids were younger and I struggle to keep up even though I put the step at a lower level. Another thing to work on me thinks.
I don't let all this new information get me down. I have upped my exercise and I am losing weight on the plan and I feel really good. If I stick to it I know things will improve. I have taken the first steps and nearly completed the first two weeks and have established new good habits in my eating and drinking.
