I had no idea how hard losing the baby weight would be. I think in my mind it would be like how I lost weight before. However, this time around I think I will have to work twice as hard and double the patience. It's taken me two weeks of working really hard to even see the slightest change in the scale. I have to remind myself that the scale doesn't mean a thing sometimes. Just because it may say there has been a gain, does not mean that I actually gained fat. It's so easy though to get caught up in that number. I am trying not to do that! This past Friday, I weighed in and have lost 3 lbs. I was pretty pleased because I sure put the work in. I also have lost 6 inches throughout my body. That is what I am most pleased with because I cannot wait to fit into my clothes again. I have an entire tub full of clothes that I put away when I was about 18 weeks pregnant because they were all slowly getting tighter on me and I needed to free up space in my closet. I remember when I put them away and thought to myself "when I open this back up again, it will be like Christmas!!" It will happen, I am sure of it.
I have been putting the work in at the gym and it sure feels incredible. I have wanted a home gym for forever and I think this next month we are going to make it happen. We have a fairly large garage which we don't really use except for random junk. I am really excited because my workouts will be much easier to get done since all I have to do is go to my garage. I want to put a treadmill, a bike, weights and maybe even a bench in it. I haven't figured it out completely, but once we get the garage cleaned out, I will know what I want exactly. Well things are going good here. Staying motivated and preparing healthy meals is the extent of what my free time consists of!
