Happy Monday everyone! I know my post is a day late. I haven't been feeling so well lately, and last night I hit a wall and just couldn't drag myself off the couch. I visited my doctor this morning and I'm now on antibiotics and a couple different allergy meds, so hopefully I'll be feeling better soon.
I promise you that this post was worth the wait, though. I have some exciting news!!! I hit two milestones this past week... First, I officially hit that 10 pound loss mark! And second, I am FINALLY back down to my pre-pregnancy weight, and then some! I never thought I would ever be this small again.
I have struggled with my weight for years. I feel like once I moved to Orlando in 1998 and started my "real job", I started putting the weight on. Then I met my husband shortly thereafter and got lazy, I guess. Over the years it just slowly crept up on me. I dieted a few times to get it off, and then it would come back. Here's a little video showing the ups and downs over the last several years.
I am finally happy with my weight again, and I refuse to ever let it creep back up! It is such a great feeling to be able to feel good about myself again!
I still have two months to go on the Nutrisystem program, and I am hoping to reach my ultimate goal of 130 pounds by the end of those two months. I have been doing well sticking to the diet plan, so I think I will be able to do it. I still find it easy to stick with the program, since there is such a variety of great foods. Some of my favorites this past week were Cinnamon Bun for breakfast, Roasted Vegetable Pizza for lunch, Chili with Beans for dinner, and Carrot Cake for dessert.
Now for my weekly weigh in. As I mentioned earlier, I am back down to my pre-pregnancy weight, and then some. When I got pregnant with Rylie I was right around 137. When I stepped on the scale Sunday morning it read 136.8! Yay! That is a loss of 2.4 pounds over the last week! It looks like my body recovered from that eating binge I went on last weekend.
Week One Loss: -3.2
Week Two Loss: -2.0
Week Three Loss: -1.0
Week Four: Vacation
Week Five Loss: -1.4
Week Six Loss: -1.0
Week Seven Loss: -0.4
Week Eight Loss: -2.4
