189 pounds

No more excuses.

I’ve spent the past two years living a very unhealthy lifestyle and I’ve always blamed it on my relationship.

“I’ve gained weight but it’s impossible to diet while my s/o is sitting next to me eating a pizza.”

To be fair, I spent 9 months out of the past 24 pregnant but it’s still no excuse for the other 15 months I’ve spent inhaling 2,000+ calories a day.

Well, now he has a new job that requires him to be out of state for 3 weeks at a time with 1 weekend home per month.

I’m now 48 hours into a strict, low carb, paleo style diet with a 1,000 calorie cap and I told him that I would be 15 pounds lighter when he seen me again. No, he doesn’t want me to stress out and crash diet, he loves me the way I am but I know that when I set goals and make promises, I keep them! So it’s more for me than it is him.

I’m 5'6 and I weighed 128 pounds the day I met my s/o. I weighed 189 pounds the day I delivered my son 15 months ago, my current weight is 165 pounds. I’m 48 hours into my diet with a 4 pound loss, (water weight, I’m sure.) And going strong! I’m not giving up this time because as I said, I have no more excuses.

I’m writing this to keep track and motivate. ❤

Usually, I don’t like putting this type of stuff on the internet, but I am just far too excited not to say something! 

Alright, since like the beginning of May, I have been changing my diet in an attempt to lose weight. At the start, I weight a whopping 189 pounds. Which for me was way too close to 200 for my liking. So I have been working tirelessly to alter the way I view food and how much food I eat in a day. And after months I have finally gotten down to . . . drum roll, please . . . 166 pounds! Now, I am nowhere near a healthy weight as of yet, but I just can’t believe I have lost 23 pounds. I know it sounds like I should have lost more since I have been doing this for months. But I didn’t just want to lose weight, I wanted to change the way I view food so I could keep the weight off. This was never a get slim quick diet.

I now fit into a size 12 jeans and I am just elated! I used to wear a 16, but those are way too big for me now.

Like I said: I don’t like posting personal stuff like this, but I am just too happy not to say something. God has helped me so much in this endeavor and I can’t thank Him enough!

So I really, actually, FINALLY started moving towards my goal weight and I wanted to share with anyone who may still be paying attention.
The picture on the left is from One month ago, I weighed in at 189 pounds
Yesterday I went to the doctor and weighed in at 176 pounds.
Thats 13 pounds in a month and I definitely knew there had been a change but I didnt really realize until I saw these pictures
So proud of myself and my progress!
