weight loss wednesday #6

weight loss wednesdayReally 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.

How is your journey going? Any challenges or successes you’d like to share? I’d love to hear them!
