Weight Loss Journey – Day 43

Weight Loss Journey – Day 38

My average is still less than last week, so I’m doing OK on the weight, even though I do weigh more than yesterday.  In this morning’s workout, Harley Pasternak mentioned to ‘Graze, not Gorge’.  I have not been very good about eating a healthy snack in between meals, so I did that today – one…

Weight Loss Journey – Day 37

When I weighed myself this morning, the recording actually went through from yesterday, which I was a pound off.  I was actually 163.8 – not 164.8!  Correction has been made on that post. As a heads up, I’ll be continuing my weight loss journey blog posts up until the end of this month.  At that…
