So this week on MyFitnessPal I buckled down, entered my food, exercised, and gave it my very best.
And I lost 4.5 lbs.
I AM SO EXCITED.
I’m down to 164.4!
Here’s what changed:
Even though I didn’t respond to each comment, I read each and every one – I always do. Promise. And they stuck with me, the basic words of “You can do this, it works, keep going.” Then a few jumped out about how any successful plan to be healthier takes work, Weight Watchers also requires me to enter my meals, and this one in particular from Jen:
“It is painful and I keep telling myself it shouldn’t have to be this hard but then I ask myself one simple question- Do I want to be right or successful?”
That was in my head all week. I want to be healthy, to not have to go buy new clothes, to lose the extra baby weight that really isn’t good for me to have. I don’t want to be a stick, I simply want to feel better.
So between yoga and my Tony Little Gazelle (yes, all the way back to the very beginning of Beth Anne’s McFatty Monday’s) I worked out almost every day this week. And I entered all the ingredients (I found out just entering the food and not things like spices make it easier – obviously) then did my best to calculate how much it would be.
When I had no idea – like on my crockpot chicken tortilla soup the other night? I typed it in, picked one that was close, and went a half serving up just to be safe.
BOOM. It worked.
I think my only question this week would be: how do you exercise in the heat? What do you do inside – or when do you go outside? It was 106* here almost every day that week and it was brutal.
Soooo, how did you all do? Have you just started – what week are you on? Hitting any frustrations? Have a recipe to share with us you’d like to link to? (We should do that!) You can find me as lifeasaSAHM on myfitnesspal.
Link up if you did a post today or last week about MFP, health, weight, etc:
