A Day in the Life of a Coffee Addict

>Weight Loss Check In

Posted on: 01/01/2011

>I will be perfectly honest and tell you that during this holiday season I have not eaten as well as I should have, not only was I not counting my Weight Watcher points but i was not following the doctor’s diet either and I’ve paid the price believe me. But throughout the season I have continued to workout and have some super healthy eating days and as of tomorrow I will be back to 100% strict dieting! I did want to take some time to show off my progress a little bit.

In August the doctor scared me and I started dieting, changed my eating habits, drank much less coffee, steered clear of white foods and started Weight Watchers. I had a long way to go and wasn’t sure I could do it.

By September I had already taken off several pounds and was noticing differences in how my clothes felt and how I felt – more energy, more motivation, more stamina. I was pushing myself in my workouts and finding new and creative ways to make meals.

In December (the 31st be exact) I weighed in to find I am down 39.7 pounds from the day I saw the doctor! I need new clothes, I have SO much energy, I can do lunges without my knees hurting, I can run longer, I can walk farther. Overall I feel great! I still have a ways to go but I am proud of the start I’ve made!!

*note* In all three photos I’m wearing the same type of shirt and pants – they are the same brand and size just different colors.
