Noom and me — one year later

It’s been a year since I signed up with Noom. Here are some facts.

First the negative.

  • My current diet is not what I’d like it to be. Specifically, I eat way too much sugar, mostly in the form of cookies (okay, Oreos).
  • My arthritis has been acting up in my right index finger and my right big toe.
  • My sleep is still not great. I continue to struggle with getting back to sleep when I wake up early, which is far too often.

Now the positive.

  • My weight is around 160 pounds, which is 15 pounds below my original goal, and 10 pounds below my stretch goal.
  • I’ve been holding steady around 160 pounds since June. This morning I weighed in at 158.2.
