So, I’m continuing on my Noom weight loss/health adventure. And I think it’s going well. My only fear as the life changes I’m making won’t stick and I’ll be back to heavy and miserable in 6 months.
The good news is that I don’t think I’m halfway through the psychology lessons yet. So there is still a good bit of journey left. And the longer you reinforce the new habits, the better chance they’ll stick. For that reason I’m cautiously optimistic.
I’m at the point where the daily “lessons” are becoming a bit didactic. A lot of the information seems to be stuff I kind of already know. Some is cool science, like the different hormones and how they affect hunger and satiety.
Right now Noom is all about schooling you through the ups and downs and plateaus of weight loss. How to stay motivated. How to re-energize your your motivation. Setting goals and recognizing the stumbling blocks.
The good part is that I sense my appetites are changing, and that was part of Moon’s plan. Getting you to crave healthy options instead of processed foods. Filling up on low calorie dense foods. Adding protein. Lots of veggies. But at the same time not depriving yourself of treats. Just everything in moderation.
Anyway, I’ve gone back to the gym (double vaxxed!) and amped up my workouts, which is helping. I’m lifting weights and getting in cardio. Walking. Biking. And I’m feeling better!
Oh- and I’m down over 20 lbs now. I’m one pound away from the initial goal set by Noom which is really encouraging. And another 15 away from the lightest I’ll have been in 15 years. Then a bit more beyond that to get to where I think I need to be to be happy.
