First off, welcome to Sabine, our newest blogger. I've known her since I was a teenager, and she's seen me at every stage of my weight journey ... oh, hold on. I don't think she ever saw me at my skinniest, which was when I got married. I shall take care of that right now:
Okay, now she's seen me in all my stages. :) But now I can't get Blogger to let me rearrange elements on the sidebar, so she has to just sort of dangle up there at the top until I figure it out. :)
Moving into the message for today ...
I've been paying a lot more attention to my fat intake. For so long, I've been living on autopilot, just moving from task to task to task. That's how weight creeps on, when we're not looking. We've talked a bit in the past how hard it's been for me to shift my focus onto myself. When you have four children who are home schooled and you work full-time from home, it gets hard to find those minutes to think about yourself. I'm working on it, though, I really am!
I mentioned that my blood pressure has gone down a lot already, and that's awesome. But perhaps the most measurable progress is in my weight.
Are you ready?
Can I say it?
I'm now at 277.5, which is a total loss so far of 7 pounds. 7 pounds for Tristi! Go, Tristi! Go, Tristi!
