McFatty Monday..first week down

My first week back on track with my eating and working out was successful. I tracked my calories every day and stayed right around 1200, plus whatever I earned from working out.

I walked five days last week..mostly around the neighborhood, up and down every street, which is about 3 miles. Yesterday we went to the kite festival and walked about 2 miles.

I had a question in my comments last week about when I weigh myself. I actually weigh-in every morning, first thing in the morning (before getting dressed or anything). The only weigh-in that "counts" is the Monday morning one. I'm excited and motivated because I lost 3.8 lbs this week!

Current weight: 192
Weight lost this week: 3.8 pounds
Total weight lost: 3.8 pounds (still about 9 pounds from where I was a few months ago)

That's a great start!

Side note - we took our 21 month old son to the zoo on Saturday morning and I actually saw you guys on the same train (but obviously didn't say anything). And then we were also at the kite festival on Sunday(didn't see you though). Small world!
