Really quick update today as I am not feeling great – but it is a happy one! I lost 3lbs and I finally feel like I’m making progress. I think the shift in my eating over this past week has really helped. I haven’t been able to manage a smoothie every morning… there have still been a couple days where I just had a coffee, but I’m a work in progress!
#1 Started May 13, 2015: 235 lbs
#2: 233 lbs
#3: 237 lbs
#4: 231 lbs
#5: 233 lbs
#6: 230 lbs
I managed to get in 4 workouts this week, and I’d like to start walking after dinner every day with the family to add to that.
I still forget to track my calories quite regularly, but I have been avoiding late night snacking which is when I typically consume most of my daily calories.
I may have gone for lunch with a friend on friday at Famoso and had a margherita pizza… and when I looked it up on MFP it may have been like 1200 calories… I knew it would be more than a salad but I was shocked. It was a great reminder for me to look up the nutritional information before going out to eat.
I look forward to saying goodbye to the 230’s when I step on the scale next week, I’m also due to take my first progress photos (not ready to share yet but I’m taking them as reference for myself) and while I don’t expect to see much of a change, I know I will within the next few months. I hope to be under 220 by my birthday (September 20) as that would be my lowest weight since before being pregnant with my son.
