30 day weight-loss challenge check in!


Today is the half-way point in my 30 day weight-loss challenge! I thought I would share my results so far. I am feeling pretty happy with my progress to date. I have lost 3.59% of my total body weight! In case you are interested in how to calculate this it is: [(IW-AW)/IW] X100 (= weight loss percentage). IW: Initial Weight (starting) , AW: Actual Weight (today)
Here are some pictures to share:

Half way of 30 day challenge!

I’ve had a few challenging days (The Spring Sale, Mother’s Day & Beat The Bridge BBQ) and an evening out (where I had to find something on a Thai food menu that wouldn’t completely sink me) where I chose the vegetable dish (with chicken).

I’ve been trying to follow the principles that I learned a couple of years ago when I was on Nutrisystem. Small entrees plus Dairy or Protein and Fruit or Vegetable for each meal and one or two healthy snacks (protein bars normally). I’ve been chewing sugar-free gum when I feel hungry and don’t have any healthy choices available. It is going pretty well!

I’ve had plenty of opportunities despite the rain to get exercise – including walking nearly 4 miles yesterday in Beat The Bridge To Beat Diabetes (where you can still donate on my page) 😀 Thanks for reading! Have a Healthy Week!


About hobbymamma

I'm a mother of the marvelous Olivia (age 7), the adorable Cooper (almost 3) and Wyatt (6 months). As a busy SAHM (& wife to Tyson aka 'Sarge'), I find myself with irons in many fires. Some of my time is also devoted to voluntary services for various non-profit organizations. The idea for this blog came from something I find myself thinking or saying rather often lately: I have so many interests & hobbies that I don't consider myself 'expert' at any of them. It can be frusterating on occasion, but mostly I find it refreshing and rewarding to enjoy such variety. On this blog I share bits and hints about some of the hobbies I currently enjoy. When considering some of my favorite hobbies - i've discovered that a theme that threads through many of them is green. Not necessarily the color (that too) but 'green practices'. I often find myself thinking, how can I make this more environmentally friendly. What ingredients or products are better for my family and the beautiful planet where we live. I hope you will enjoy reading about some of my hobbies and be inspired to try something new!
