The journey begins

Happy Monday sweet friends. Well, I started my journey to better living this morning. I stepped on my scale, and it screamed, tilt, tilt. My weight at the beginning of this journey is 147. I will be having my weigh in every Monday morning. I started my morning with breakfast, of course. I am eating Atkins dinners for breakfast. Being a type 1 diabetic, it is very important that I watch my carb intake. My total carb intake with each meal, can be 45 carbs. After breakfast, I went walking for an hour. Woo Hoo, loved it. Came home, did some chores around the apartment, then ate another Atkins meal for my lunch. After lunch, went walking for another thirty minutes. When I got home, rested a little. Then, I exercised with my exercise bands, and hand weights, for thirty minutes. I drank an Atkins shake for my supper. So, total carbs for today=57 Total exercise for today=2 hours For those of you who are also on a journey, good luck. Cheering you on, let me know how you are doing.

Amazing! I'm still sticking to my schedule & diet, and am frustrated that the weight isn't coming off. I feel better, though, so I guess that's the important part!

Way to go, you can do this and the less carbs you eat the less you desire. That's a fact! My goal is to get to 147 pounds so your way ahead of me.
