Do Better

Hello! In my August goals, you read that I have been losing weight, and wanted to continue doing it. It was about two pounds a week then. Since the beginning of August, I have lost a total of nine pounds. I don’t eat as much anymore, and I’ve been working a lot, which involves walking (during a 7.5-hour shift, I regularly walk about six miles) and hauling one to six dresses, weighing anywhere from a few ounces to five or so pounds each. I’ve still been eating less, and making better food choices. If I continue in this fashion, I should reach my goal weight by mid-May 2020. 

The thing is, I know I could be doing better. I could walk the dog more. There have been too many days these past two weeks I’ve taken the easy route of putting her in the backyard and encouraging her to run by chasing her. I could take up exercising on my days off again, and work my way up to working out every day. I could make even better food choices. I could wean myself off Coca-Cola faster; take up coffee instead. It’s been a wonderful four weeks of 2.25 pounds lost a week, on average. But, like I said, I think I can do better. 

Here’s to nine pounds lost. Here’s to a sizable amount to go. And here’s to continuing to improve my habits, and hopefully increasing my average weight lost per week.
