I had to take a picture this morning to prove it: I’m down three pounds from last week!
It was my goal to at least lose 2-3 lbs from last week, especially since I had gained a pound last week instead of losing. I’m so excited that it happened!
What changed? Well, I continued to track what I was eating, but I upped my water intake and went out for a few more walks this week. I also wore the baby quite often the past few days since he’s been a teething Tyrannosaurus and won’t let me put him down. With the added weight on me and bouncing/walking around my house, I must have burned some extra calories every day.
Here’s this week’s results:
Week 1: 236 lbs
Week 2: 235 lbs (-1 lb)
Week 3: 232 lbs (-3 lbs, total -4 lbs)
Week 4: 229 (-2 lbs, -6 lbs total)
Week 5: 230 (+1 lbs, -5 total)
Week 6: 227 (-3 lbs, -9 total)
I’m hoping for another 2 lbs this upcoming week. I don’t want to be so obsessed with the weight loss, but you know what? I feel great. It’s been a long time since I’ve felt this good. My body may not look like I’m getting healthy yet, but it definitely feels like it!
Have a great weekend!
