#teamgordo day 10

I continue to celebrate every pound lost

I started my 10th day at 293 pounds. If you are keeping track you would remember I started this journey 10 days ago at 305.

How do I feel?

I feel great. It’s weird that I slowly feel like I am waking up after years of being tired and dormant. This past Saturday was my second time with the local workout group. I am lucky to have found such a supporting group with such a positive attitude and keep me motivate. I wasn’t able to do some exercise only because of my current physical limitations but the whole group was encouraging that just my attempts are the achievements for now and I just need to stay on track before I can complete all the exercises.

The attitude of “Today you did 2 last week you did 1 – next week you do 3. But, even if you only do 1 next week you are still on track moving forward”.

I can tell they are sincere because they have all been in my place. When they started they never thought they would be able to do the full exercise. They had trouble with 1 push up and never thought they would be able to do 100. So, they remind me as long as I shop up and try. I am making progress.

I cut the soda pop, the chips, the fast food. I eat when I am hungry and that is about every 3 hours. But, I eat fruits. An apple, a banana or an orange holds me over to lunch and dinner. I am not doing any special diet. I am just eating more fruits and vegetables and if I cook something is from scratch. I am avoiding anything that is process like they plague.

It isn’t easy and I don’t have strong will power. So, I just tried my best to avoid temptation and Netflix has a lot of motivated documentries. 🙂

If you have a juicer maybe is time you put it to use to start this journey. Check out the film “Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead (2011)” on Netflix. It is also free Hulu herehttp://www.hulu.com/watch/289122 and you can read more about Joe the Juicer at http://www.fatsickandnearlydead.com/

For starters. This film motivate me to get one. 🙂
