Weigh-In Wednesday: 3/18/15

It feels good to be checking back in with Weigh-In Wednesday. I was on the road all day last Wednesday and just did not have time to get a post up. But, I am back today and I have good news!

Weigh In Wednesday
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!


  1. I hope your second opinion comes back with positive news and congrats on hitting the 150s!!! That is so exciting!!!!!

  2. You're doing great! Following!

  3. Erin I am SO proud of you!!! The 150's... freakin' awesome!!! I couldn't wait to tell you this... I'm on day 16 of my Whole30 and the last few days I've been bored. Kind of sick of the same old foods but no big deal, I'm definitely committed to the program. My clothes are getting super loose and that's the first time I've been able to say that in a long time. Usually they're getting tighter, not looser! I tried on the next size down jeans this morning and they FIT! One pair that didn't button or zip a month ago buttoned and zipped this am! They were still tight but I could get them on. Another pair completely fit and I'm also noticing my shirts are looser. The maxi skirts I've been living in (because everything else is too small!) are falling off of me! The BEST motivation to keep going with this Whole30 and the lifestyle in general! Can't wait for you to get started... you're going to see so many great changes, including a reduction in that pain I bet!

  4. Great loss! I hope your leg starts to feel better soon!

  5. Keep up the good work you are rocking this!

  6. Woohoo! They always say that abs are made in the kitchen, not the gym. Keep it up!
