First off just look at me in this picture–I’m so young and blond and skinny!!! What is even funnier is to see my little brother Ryan next to me….just to show you the difference here is a pic of him that was taken while they were out here 2 weeks ago (and he was trying to be dumb not cool so ignore the face he’s making and his hands, haha!!)
Amazing what a difference 5 years makes! Haha! But on to the Not So Fat stuff!
Well this week was another “not so bad, not so good” weeks. I did great with the food journal up until the weekend and then it just got stopped entirely. I was very sick, busy, and stressed all week and it showed in the food choices I made. I wasn’t able to work out because of all of that too. But I still stay at 4 lbs. lost. I was kinda getting discouraged that I haven’t been doing too hot the last couple of weeks. I feel like I look at a lot worse than I did 3 months after I had Amber–which can’t be true because I know I weigh less. It seems like with him being the second baby though he really made my belly flabbier and my love handles more love handle-y though. So I decided this week would be a good one to look back at exactly where I am and where I want to be.
So far since having Tyler I have lost 19 lbs. in all.
That puts me just 6 lbs heavier than my pre-Amber weight
And 16 lbs heavier than my pre-Tyler weight.
Which means I’m 26 lbs heavier than my “skinny pretty me” weight.
When I break it down like that I don’t feel so bad–especially considering he’s only just turned 3 months old and not even close to sleeping through the night yet. Not to mention the sickness and visits and stuff that has interfered with weight loss.
So I’m not going to beat myself up about it. I do need to focus on portion control, not snacking after dinner, and once I get better (still feel yucky) I need to start working out again.
I still have 6 months to lose 16 lbs and I’m determined to do it!
So how are you doing in the big scheme of things??? I’d love to hear!
