Operation Weight Loss - Week 5
I am doing a happy dance! I've lost a significant amount of weight over the past 5 weeks. How much? 17.3 pounds! You've read that right. I've lost 17.3 pounds since the week of Thanksgiving AND I've also lost 8.5 inches. I am actually amazed. This week I lost 6 pounds and it is funny because I was not hitting the exercise as hard as usual but I did manage to get it in. I stuck to my EA SPORTS Active workouts but I didn't do any add-ons. Just getting the exercise in was an accomplishment and I am thankful that although I missed some days I was able to make up workouts on my rest days.
My 6 week challenge with EA SPORTS Active More Workouts ends tomorrow but my love of fitness and exercising is not going to end. I actually think I will do another 6 weeks! In addition, I can't speak highly enough of my Jenny Craig consultants. They have all been very helpful, inspiring and encouraging. Having a weekly weigh-in has kept me accountable and I actually look forward to my meetings.
Here is my vlog about my progress this week:
So, I am looking forward to a New Year and a New Me. If you are interested in taking steps toward your health in the upcoming year, here are a few places you might want to check out.
