59# Down!

Im continuing the same eating patterns but trying hard to eat 1000 calories a day but that's a struggle eating that much. I started the Couch to 5k running program and have signed up for a Color Run in three weeks! I am also doing Refit (like Zumba) once a week.  Its a work in progress.

Cuteness Overload

 I am the crazy chicken lady. I am down to 8 laying hens and 1 rooster. 
Its spring! Time for babies! I purchased six chicks and 1 duck. 
Why one duck? I wanted a few ducks but at Tractor Supply they had only ONE duckling! 
It was in a bin all alone so I got him and Im pretty sure hes going to grow up thinking hes a chicken.  His name is Dexter. (we really dont know if its a he or a she)
Dexter is going to be one spoiled duck!

On My Way

 Ive lost 57 pounds (counting from my highest weight) I went through my closet and I have three trash bags full of clothes I can no longer wear. Its great! But at the same time, I have hardly any clothes to wear!
 Today I wore this to church. Ive never worn pants on a Sunday morning to church but I have no dresses or skirts that fit me!
Tomorrow I start Couch to 5K training. I signed up for a 5K color run for next month! I might be crazy but signing up is the push I need to make me train.I need to exercise more than I have been. 

I go to Refit once a week. Sometimes I do weights and stair stepper at home but in the past few weeks Ive been slacking. 

Ive also been pretty down about a lot of things. Generally not happy with life even though I have a pretty good life. Mid life crisis maybe??? Side effects from surgery???  I don't know. I feel great about my weight loss,  just a lot going on in my brain these days. Hoping more training and exercise and concentrating on that will help.

Loss Update

As of March 1st I have lost 52 pounds. Im averaging about 7 pounds a month now. Still working on my water intake. I went for my three month visit with the surgeon and he said Im doing awesome and warned that this is when many lose focus. Im still working hard at eating only what I should have but once in a blue moon I might sneak something small. At work they are putting out all sorts of sweets and snacks and Im proud to say that the only thing I got was a yogurt! I want to lose about 40 more pounds!
