Two weeks ago: 159.2 lbs
This week: 157.8 lbs
Change: -1.4 lbs
This loss is was achieved by my eating alone! That is huge! I don't think I can ever recall a time where I have lost weight without having to kick my own ass physically. February 27th was the last time that I actually worked out. Since then, I've went on one run and walked at the park twice, both times being less than 2 miles. So, this loss is huge!
I've had some motivation to eat right.
1. The book It Starts with Food. Erin @ She's a Big Star highly recommended this book and I am so glad she did! I want everyone to read this book. Everything is just making sense. Danny and I will be doing a Whole30 starting April 6th, the day after Easter. I am chomping at the bit to get started, but until then, I am using it as a guide for my meals. Since I have already cut dairy out for the month and gave up pop for Lent, it hasn't been too difficult. I have felt great the last few weeks by eating "right" despite the fact that my sleep has been less than stellar. Ah, life with a 1 year old! I can't imagine what I would be feeling like if I were still "treating" myself to Taco Bell and pizza every week on top of not getting enough sleep.
2. Rest. Like I said, I haven't actually worked out since the end of February. My leg was in a lot of pain the few days following the workout, so I decided to give it a rest for at least a week. After a week, my leg was worse and showed no signs of improving. I made an appointment to get a second opinion with a doctor down in Indy, who I actually go see tomorrow. Since making the appointment, my leg stayed the same.... until Monday where the pain went from sharp to a dull ache. This may seem silly, but I went to the park yesterday because it was nice out and I wanted to make sure it was still hurting. It was. Not as bad, but still there. My mom agreed, that as soon as I would cancel the appointment, it would start hurting again. So tomorrow morning I'm getting a start on that second opinion and probably setting up an appointment to shell out another $500 for another MRI I'm sure.
Anyways, so that's where I'm at right now. I've officially reached the 150s! I'm 7 lbs away from my pre-pregnancy weight. Pre-pre-pregnancy weight as been achieved!
