Scale and Tape Measure

I am 5 days into my new path to better health.  I have made good progress and hoped to avoid any detours or delays.  I have not done a good job at entering hydration and meals, but I have done a great job at exercise with three days in 6 with 11,500 steps or more.  I have lost nearly three pounds.   

Goal: 203 pounds by 16 October 2017.  

Calories: 1500-2000 per day.  One of the biggest things I have done is adding a snack or almonds and broad bean crisps to help with my appetite. I eat three meals of about 500 calories per meal.  

Hydration: 2-3 liters per day.  

Exercise: 3-4 days per week.  I try to exercise in the morning.  Morning exercise helps me avoid a lapse due to procrastination.  

I will continue to focus on getting enough exercise and watching what I eat.  I still drink a little alcohol on weekends and seems to be working for me.  Moderation appears to work with me so I will continue to push forward with moderation and portion control.  I will post again in about a week.
