Unintentional Weight Loss FTW
March 22, 2010 4 Comments
I mentioned two weeks ago how I had unofficially lost 10lbs since I stopped eating out. I have done two official weigh ins since then. Last week I was down 13lbs, this week 14lbs. Considering that I have done NOTHING to change my behaviors aside from eating at home vs eating out, this is pretty impressive to me.
And as many of you have noticed, I don’t exactly eat that healthy even when I do eat at home.
So I’m starting a challenge to myself for the next few weeks (through April) to go to the gym at least three times a week (during my lunch break) and eating a bit healthier for dinner (I’m thinking salads and the like) at least three times a week as well.
I don’t know if this will make any difference, but I figure if not eating out can cause such a dramatic result, coupling that with more healthy eating and a little bit more physical activity couldn’t hurt.
Also, one of my undergrads asked me today if I had lost weight. She’s the first person to notice, it made me feel really good. =)
