I have to keep reminding myself that this is a marathon, not a sprint. I'm simply not going to make it to my goals in days or weeks, its going to take months, possibly more than a year. I have a lot of weight to lose. I've made some progress, but I still have a ways to go.
My higher calorie eating is working! I've got my daily intake goal set for about 2400, and my minimum at 1600. I hit about 1900-2000 most days.
I've noticed an incredible difference, though its hard to say if its just the diet or the fact that I ditched the birth control I was on, lol. But I am feeling far more energetic, happier, and just ... BETTER in almost every way.
I've lost about 3lbs in the past 3 weeks or so. Seems like its been less than that and that its taken longer than that... but when I check, I am reassured. I'm trying not to weigh myself every day because that just messes with my head... so I'm weighing myself every 4-5 days instead. Every time I get on the scale and see "only" a .2 lb drop or whatever... I remind myself... 'hey... at least its a smaller number than the last time you were on here!' :)
So lets see. I'm down to 195lbs and can squeeze into size 14 jeans. They're a bit tight, but they don't hurt to wear. :)
I've lost 27lbs and 2 pant sizes since Christmas.
I am all the way out of my maternity pants! (Though I still wear them because they're so comfortable LOL)
And BEST of all... people are starting to notice! :D
I'd still love to be down to 190 by June, but I'm thinking its going to be more like... I'll get to 190 IN June. :P No rush... its not a sprint.
