Extreme Karen Makeover - End of Week One

Well, it has been seven days since I started working on the new and improved me and I am very excited today....I lost 10.1 pounds this week. I have been working hard on drinking 8-8 ounce glasses of water every day, cuting out carbonated beverages, drinking green tea(for the antioxidants), watching my daily caloric intake, and increasing my exercising amounts....and it paid off. I stood on the scales at the doctors office and could not believe it when the scales registered a 10+ pound loss. I told the doctor what I was doing and he told me it was a good campaign to follow....told me not to be disappointed if next week the drop was less....but that this was a great start. Well....I am hoping next week is a good week too. I only exercised three times this week. Next week I will have exercised five times. I have been totally amazed at how much food I was really consuming. One night this past week we had Italian sausages done on the grill. I love the things(throwback from State Fair days when I was a kid). I ate one...just one...without a bun....and some veggies to go with it. I was full when I left the table...and later got to thinking...hummmm....at a normal meal...I would have probably had two...on buns...with onions, peppers cooked in oil...with chips...and baked beans. I am truly ashamed of my old eating habits...but hopefully...this is a way of the past. I have eaten out three times this week and still kept it under budget. Whoooo hoooo....keep praying that I will endure! I can't wait to start seeing a difference...and posting pictures of the New and Improved Me!
