|Feet in the water! Ahhhhh!|
But I did take a moment to remember all of our service men and woman who have fought and died for our country. The true reason for the holiday.
The previous week's weigh in was not good. I knew it wouldn't be because I was bloated really bad. Dad and I had also eaten out a few times, and when I thought I was making smart choices, the calorie counter showed me they were not.
With Noom Coach the orange check marks mean you stayed under calories and did your minimum number of steps for the day. The yellow check marks mean you either are under on steps or over on calories.
In my case, it was a little of both.
I weighed in at 330.4 lbs. Ouch!
The following week I wanted to eat at home as much as possible. With my new job it is very easy to eat out. I often don't get home until really late. I'm tired by then, so eating out is easy to fall back on. The problem is that when you eat out, you can never be 100% sure of what you are eating. We did eat out once, BUT I planned it very carefully. I looked at the menu before going and chose what I would have, counted the calories, and all.
My two big goals were to eat at home and log EVERYTHING. Even if it meant going over on calories. It turned out being very successful. I didn't go over, and I lost 3.4 lbs.

It's a start. I'll take it!
The goal for this week - To keep logging and be more active. I am trying to walk or go swimming everyday. I also have a training session with one of the personal trainers at the church rec center on Thursday. I'm a little nervous about it because I am terribly out of shape. We'll see how it goes.
