Eva's Biggest Loser Year: Week 1

I had some specific goals for this week.
* No soda at home. 
* 50% of my plate at church dinner would be vegetables
* Exercise at least 4 days of the week. 
* Spend more time standing and walking around during the day.

So how did I do?
* I only had 12 oz one day while we were out running errands.
*I did eat small servings of everything that wasn't vegetable and I had a large salad. 
  I also only ate half servings of dessert, though I did have two types. 
* Walked 1.8 miles on Tuesday and Wednesday, pool on Thursday, and walked 2 mi on Monday
* I made at least twice as many trips up the stairs per day and am trying to do more housework and standing during school time as well.
* I lost 5 lbs. this week !!!

My sister-in-law, Leah, is working on things with me.  She has agreed to a weight loss tracking ticker on my sidebar.  Maybe she will let me put an update picture with it in a month or so!  Also working on some others to join me!  If you want to be a part of my Biggest Loser Circle just let me know your stats and I will be happy to celebrate with you!

Next week I plan to record what I eat and the calories.  My goal is an average of 1,100 calories per day.
This is where I can record and calculate certain factors.  This should result in at least a 2 pound loss this week.  Hoping I can burn more off since I am getting better with my walking.  On Tuesday when I walked it took me an hour to limp around the track for 1.8 miles.  Monday I did the whole 2 mi. in 50 minutes.  Hoping to go longer this week!

Thanks for reading my blog to help hold me accountable.  If you want to leave a message for me here I would appreciate the encouragement!  I thank God and all my family and friends for helping me!

With All My Heart~


  1. Wow, it's great to see that your discipline is working. Keep praying for help...I know that it helps me keep away from unnecessary goodies! I've gone from close to 81# to 75.5# in about a week and a half. Gained a little today because of a small Mickey D splurge last night, but after having an English muffin for breakfast, I am not planning on eating until this evening. Lots to do in my shop today! God bless you as you continue to be a good steward of your health.

  2. Thanks for the note. Good job on your loss! You are right about prayer. It is the biggest help! Praying for all at your house! :)

  3. You are doing awesome! Look up the couch to 5K program - I started running with it a year ago, very small increments that you could add in when you go to the track!

  4. Thanks Jonatha! I will look at it. I have never been much of a runner though, and since I broke my ankle, I am really slow. I was starting to run at the gym before I broke it so hopefully I can get back to that too. I appreciate your prayers and thoughts! How is everyone at your house?

  5. We are good - trying to get through the sicknesses that winter always seems to bring to our home! I am a VERY slow runner - but like they say "a 14 minute mile and a 6 minute mile are both a MILE". :) That goes for walking as well!
