Ok, so it’s been over two weeks and I really miss chocolate chip cookies, lol. I have been really good with following my diet and being honest with my Lose It app. The first week was tough as I was so used to eating whatever I wanted that my body was a little shocked when I stopped. I felt a little dizzy at times and definitely very tired. I am much better now that my body has adjusted. I am a sugar….they say you are a sugar or a salt, and I love, love sugar. Cookies, ice cream, candies, whatever as long as it is sweet. So it was like diet detox, I think I actually went through withdrawals.
So my starting weight was 130, I just didn’t want to put that in here until I was sure that I wasn’t 130 pounds anymore…and I’m not. In two and a half weeks, I have lost 5.5 pounds! I am typically around 115 so I put my goal weight as 110. Though at 115 I still have an ass, at 110 I just have mud flaps. As a dancer for 10 years, you get in the mindset that your boobs can never be too big and you can never be too skinny. Not the healthiest way of thinking but hard to shake, so maybe I will put my goad weight back to 115. Anyway, my app told me that I would achieve 110 pounds by April 24th, 2012. This would be losing 1 pound per week but I am averaging almost 2 at this point. I think maybe my app is off as they have no exercise called chasing your 2 year old all over the place but I am sure it has to burn at least 200 calories an hour! Though house cleaning is an exercise and listed as burning 119 calories an hour. There’s never been a better reason to clean my home!
I really never even realized I was getting chubby. It seems to happen overnight. It’s like I looked in the mirror one morning and thought, what happened? I just stopped breastfeeding two months ago and I know that has a lot to do with it. We tend to make excuses and that was one of mine. “I need to take in extra calories to support my milk production.” Right, because chocolate chip cookies have many nutrients to support that. Ya, excuses. I now have none left, so salads and chicken breasts for me.. which are really not that bad. I really do love vegetables and do enjoy a big bowl of steamed broccoli. Strange for some and downright torturous for others but quite tasty for meJ
Anyhow, I will keep it up and keep you up to date on my progress! Here’s to healthy choices in the new year!
