About a month ago, I wrote a post about my promise to eat healthy and count calories. I wanted to update you on that and let you know how I’ve done so far.
Since tracking my food and working out at least twice a week, I’ve lost … 4.6 pounds.
I mean, I knew the weight wasn’t going to fall off (and I also realize it’s unhealthy to lose a bunch of weight really quickly), but I have to admit I’m majorly disappointed that it’s such a slow process. Plus I had two weeks where I didn’t lose any weight, which is so disheartening. For some reason, I remember losing weight quicker the last time. I know 4.6 pounds in a month is still great, and I know it’s a process for a reason, but I can’t help wishing it would all go away quicker.
I’m actually considering going back on Weight Watchers. It’s a program that’s worked well for me in the past, and I know it will work again. My Fitness Pal seems like a great way to be aware of how much you’re eating – but I still occasionally go to bed hungry at night, something that didn’t happen with Weight Watchers once my body adjusted to it.
One thing that has improved is how much I’ve been working out. I’m taking two BarreAmped classes a week, and am even starting to throw a yoga class in with that! It’s been wonderful to get stronger, even as much as I hate holding yet another plank. (I do wish Horatio could join me in classes – that’s him in the photo hogging my mat as I do a Barre workout at home!)
Thanks for your encouragement – and I’d love to know if you have any tips or advice!
