I know I haven't posted about my weightloss in a couple weeks, but I have been everywhere. (makes me think of that song 'I've been everywhere, man") The previous couple 0f weeks were tough, I was away helping my sister and then it was my birthday, so the 2nd and 3rd week of May was not good. I actually gained 1/2 of a pound. This past week was good however, I lost my half of a pound I gained plus another 2 lbs. Yeah, back on track. I only have 4 weeks left of this challenge and i need to lose a good 10-12 pounds if I stand a chance of winning 1rst or 2nd place in the contest. I need to lose 18.5 lbs to reach my goal that I had set for myself by the end of my 12 week challenge. That would mean 4.3 pounds per week. Unrealistic but if I don't push myself I won't succeed in any goal. I forget the importance of fiber in my diet and so I am pushing for 45+ grams of fiber per day. Each gram of Fiber will eliminate 7 calories of fat from my body. which would total 315 calories per day which is 3/4 pound in a week. so if I do my math I think 72 grams of fiber per day will eliminate a whole pound in a week. I am shooting for a 5 pound loss this week. It is a steep goal, but if I don't shoot big I will miss it completely. Anyway, God Bless & have a great Friday!
