weight loss update


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!

  1. Honestly, you look amazing. My fourth and last) baby is ten months old. It was my third c-section and I only gained 12 pounds in pregnancy, as I worked with a trainer until 38 weeks. However, I had a hard recovery (harder than the others) and then gained weight after that so I feel like I'm starting all over again. You're making great progress but I agree so much that it's harder because you also have to add in the extra exhaustion and the more limited availability working around baby's schedule. It's awesome to watch your progress and you seem to be striking a great balance.

  4. I got a total gym (?--the weight set) on KSL for $100. It is a $900 machine!! There are great deals but I'm sure you know that. My treadmill was from ICON fitness outlet in Ogden. Brand new and half price!! But they might have closed that location recently. :( You can search "icon fitness outlet Ogden" for their phone number.

  7. Your post is very helpful, thank you. Many people complain about losing muscle mass along with fat when they follow a diet, thinner hair or even itchy skin. On the other hand, the Military Diet doesn’t let that happen, because it provides the right amount of proteins for your body to function at optimal levels.

  8. Just because you are on a diet doesn't mean that you can't eat out sometimes. Just remember that serving sizes in restaurants are very large. You can have the waiter bring a take-out box and put half of your meal in the remaining half. This allows you to consume an appropriate number of calories while providing you with a meal for the following day. For more info visit ReShape Ready .
