It's Been A Month

Today it has been four weeks since I started my "lifestyle change" - Ha! (AKA - DIET). Last Thursday I weighed myself and found that I had lost 7 pounds total in 3 weeks! I was ecstatic. So, I guess I thought I could take a few days off, and Wah-La, I gained back almost 3 pounds! So, here are my honest to goodness facts:

Pounds Lost in 4 weeks: 4.5
Days Exercised in the Past 4 weeks: 7

Sad, I know. I'm really trying to keep motivated now. I realized last week that my motivation had started to wane, I had stopped walking daily and was starting to eat more poorly. It started with our vacation and I had a hard time getting back on track.

The frustrating thing is that you work your BUTT off to lose weight, but then if you skip even 2 or 3 days, you can suddenly start gaining it back so fast! I am going to post next Tuesday just to let you all know how I'm doing - it is a way of holding myself accountable. Thanks for reading... I think it really does help to know there are people out there and I need to do what I say I'm going to do!


  1. Our bodies must have similar make-ups! I do the same thing, thinking I've been good, just a little treat. . . then I can't get the taste out of my mouth and NEED more :) slow but sure - I'm excited that it's warming up here, almost 60, time to break the stroller and and get in gear! Well as soon as Ella's better :)

  2. I should say - Great job loosing 7 lbs! that's huge!

  3. Hey you are doing it girl! I need to get my eating in check or the scale is never going to move. The working out is quite routine and I actually miss it when I take a break but the eating is just hard. What are you doing? Did you end up doing the You on a Diet book?
