I believe the heaviest I have weighed is 230-something pounds in my lifetime. For someone 5’2.75″ (okay 5’3″) that is A LOT. I decided to lose weight and do something about it. I’ve struggled with ups and down but I’ve always let life throw me off track. I love that as a Shaklee Blogger I have support, not just from my fellow bloggers but from an entire community of men and women using the Shaklee 180 program. I am transforming myself slowly but surely….
This month I have been working at modifying meals at home so that I can easily eat what my family eats. Most of the time I find that portion control is more important than anything else. I’ve tried cutting all carbs out of my diet. It didn’t work. I tried cutting all fat out of my diet. It didn’t work. Now I’m doing a shake for breakfast (or lunch), a meal bar for the other meal and a sensible dinner to end my day. Healthy snacks are key to keeping my metabolism going…
Exercise has always been an issue. Working FT in social media and as a blogger doesn’t allow me too much time away from my computer. I have blogger butt. I have been trying to incorporate more movement in my day though and I’m always looking for tips from others so if you have some ideas feel free to share them with me! I haven’t been riding my bike like I was early in the program and I really need to get back doing that. I wanted to start this week but it has been raining almost every day and since I live on a dirt road it’s terribly muddy. I do, however, plan on getting back to riding my cool Panama Jack bike soon.
Next month I’ll have to share updated measurements. Right now I can tell you I’m down 5.5 lbs since I started and I’ll take that. It isn’t nearly as much as others but it is something and I’m still proud of myself. Go Lisa!
