The results from the last 9 weeks are in at The Big Slice Off...I came in third with an 8 pound loss! Jamie, the rockin' chick that she is, lost an incredible 16 pounds! I'm grateful to be in such esteemed company. A big thanks to Jenny who ran the contest and provided all of us with motivation and support.
I haven't blogged about weight loss in several weeks. I've stalled a bit, but seem to be able to maintain without any difficulty. I have lost a total of 20 lbs and feel like I have about 20 left to go. If I can stay away from the wine and the pizza, I just might be able to do it.
I'd be willing to bet that my cholesterol is down too. I have been eating so much less fat and exercising way more than I used to, I can't imagine that it hasn't come down. It wasn't all that high to begin with, but I was wanting it to come down a bit. We'll see at my next Dr.'s appointment.
Overall, I'm just feeling so much healthier. I'm still pretty tired a lot...I am going through perimenopause for sure and am having a hard time sleeping most nights. Over the counter sleep aids help for sure, but I don't want to take them any more than necessary. I also get night sweats and frequent headaches and pretty severe fatigue in the afternoons.
