My husband and I started our "healthier living journey" 2012 probably around February. While I have lost 48.4 pounds I still have 32.6 to go before I THINK I am where I want to be. I say THINK because I've never been this weight in my adult life. I've always been heavy. I'm the fat one in the family. Although I don't think I would call myself that anymore. But I'm still to heavy. I'm not in my "healthy weight range". I'm not comfortable naked (not sure I ever will be).
Throughout this whole thing I haven't really wanted to consider myself on a "diet". Ive done that before and ended up gaining half the weight back that I lost. I have really tried to not tell myself that I can't have any certain food, reason being then I'm constantly gonna want that food. That's just how I am. But since I've been playing around at this back and forth 5 pounds for months now I think its time to stricken it up. I've been trying to figure out how to do that without being miserable. I Love food! And I enjoy eating. I normally stay within my calories too, but for some reason I' m not losing anymore so here is what I'm going to do for the time being. No more crackers/chips for the next two weeks at least so I can see what the scale does. If I really feel the need for something of that nature then I will pop some popcorn with coconut oil. At least that is "clean". I was getting a little crazy with the flavored peanut butter also so I'm going to limit myself to only "real" peanut butter or the PB2 for the next little while also. Also I will be keeping trying to incorporate more veggies into the mix. I'm finding a lot that I didn't even know I liked! I am still going to allow myself one "cheat meal" for the week.
As far as exercise I have been rocking it better than ever with that. I have 2 days left of Jillian Michaels the Shred and then I can move on with my life. LOL Not stop exercising but just adding new and different things. I really do enjoy the circuit type workouts though. I'm defiantly gonna incorporate lots of those in the mix. I'll keep Ya ll updated! Here's hoping for big loses!
