Before I get started, please accept my apologies for skipping last week. I thought about you guys, I really did. Life got in the way and I spent all week preparing for my In-Law’s 40th anniversary party we hosted last weekend.
I haven’t lost that much weight, but I can tell I am losing inches. My clothes fit better and a few people have noticed I have lost weight- that’s always a good feeling (especially when it’s your skinny sister-in-law!)
Do you use My Fitness Pal to lose weight? I’d love to add some more friends on there. I allow my friends to see my food diary, which definitely forces me to rethink the decision to eat a million Munchkins. Please visit my profile on there and add me if you have the app as well (my user name is RiGatorMom). I also use a FitBit to track my steps throughout the day- are you on there too? Add me! The more friends, the merrier.
As far as my diet goes, I am trying to stay around 1600 calories a day while allowing -300 calories for breastfeeding. If Sidney was still a tiny baby nursing all day I would bump it up to 500, but she is eating solids and not nursing as much as a newborn. I am still using the chocolate Slim Fast shake in the morning, mixed with Fat Free Lactaid milk and will occasionally eat that for lunch as well. I try to stick with real foods as much as possible and force myself to record everything I eat, no matter how embarrassing it is that I just binged on my toddler’s goldfish.
Holding myself accountable is necessary to live a healthier lifestyle.
So the numbers for week 3 of Project 10 are:
beginning weight: 150.0
end of week 1: 147.6*
*at one point I was down to 147.0. Meh.
Have you joined Project 10 on your journey to be healthier?
