4.8lbs and 4" this week. Not a bad week but not as great as I was hoping. But how can you be upset with 5 lbs. I am now at 293.6lbs with a total of 63.4lbs lost. I have really started to notice that I am not as short of breath doing small things like walking up stairs or carrying in a pile of lumber. I used to be very winded and would have to take a lot more breaks. I am noticing an attitude change in myself as well. I am happier and having a lot more fun with life. I am just excited to do things now where as in the past I would dread having to work. I was talking to the Dr. today, we were talking about when was the last time I was under 290. I realized that it was probably my sophomore year of high school during football season. I remember being around 270. It has been a while. I am realizing that it is very close. I have noticed the change in how I look at food. I used to eat fast food at least once a day because it was fast and easy. Now when I look at fast food I just think of how bad it is for you, which I never thought about before just shoveled it in because I thought my body could "take it," I now realize the fast track I was on to my grave. It is a great feeling to be doing something about my obesity versus just saying I need to lose weight. I would like to thank everyone for being very supportive. Also I would like to let everyone know that my mom started the same diet back home two weeks ago. She is doing great so far she has lost 15lbs So I am very proud of her. It is a great feeling to have so much love and support from friends and family.
