I have finally conquered a major milestone, breaking the 150lb benchmark that has been a constant for me since I gave birth. Last month I told you how I was assessed at 31% body fat, you can read that post here. Well I did it! 11 lbs later, 11 total inches lost and I’m down to 141lbs and 26% body fat.
It hasn’t been an easy month. I’ve dealt with ear infections and colds, really stressful work days and even more stressful house hunting. I had days when all I wanted to do was order a pizza, sit in bed and watch shows. But I didn’t and I’m so glad that I didn’t.
Week three for me was the hardest, but since then I’ve found my groove, and this new way of eating and working out has become a habit. I still don’t eat many carbs, and I’ve cut out gluten entirely. I don’t eat any dairy except for the occasional non-fat greek yogurt. I cut out sugar and increased my protein and water intake. And you know what?? I feel amazing. I don’t feel bloated anymore, I feel leaner and full of energy. So its working, this new way of life. I still have a ways to go. My goal weight is 130lbs, the weight I was at when I got married. So I’ve got that to strive for. But for now I’m taking it day by day, and thanks to my amazing supportive husband and my friend and personal trainer Briana founder of Bikini Body Mommy, I am sure I will succeed.
