Still on track... I weighed myself and I'm down 7 lbs (370 - 363) in the last two days but i know most is water weight but still very happy to be moving in the right direction. Keeping my calorie intake between 1200 - 1500 by mostly eating lean protein and fruits & veggies. Had some watermelon today for a snack and it was amazing and pretty low in coliries. I didn't get a chance to walk yesterday but I'm geared up for tonight. Thanks for all the support!
7lbs is tremendous, John! Congratulations! You sound like it's going pretty well for you too. Have you gotten any of your kids to walk with you? It's a great way to spend some real quality time with them, doing something healthy for the whole family. Plus a lot can get discussed in that 15 min walk. Great time to catch up on what's happening at school or at the playground or in sports. Also a great time to discuss what you are going through and how it may be affecting them, plus how it's going to affect them more in the future, because as you get more active and fit, you are going to expect them to keep up with "dear old dad".
keep it up, you're definitely on your way.
