Woohooh! I'm officially 25 pounds down and feeling really damn good about it. I've had a loss for two weeks in a row, and though the pounds aren't melting away, I'm headed in the right direction. For the first time, I'm feeling confident that this weight will come off. I'm only 5 pounds away from the halfway point!
I'm starting to feel like I'm getting the eating aspect of my weight loss under control. I've been tracking more frequently on MyFitnessPal and though I haven't been as good as I know I can be, its making me really think about what I'm putting into my body. Because I'm breastfeeding, I feel like I'm ALWAYS hungry, but I'm making better food about the type of foods I am eating. I'm still battling my newfound addiction to sweets, but eating more fruit is helping. And, I know it better if I slowly loose weight, especially right now, because I don't want to jeopardize my milk production.
It rained or was pretty cold almost all week. Since I'm responsible for Bug about 22 hours a day most days, she needs to be a part of my workout routine. This is so much harder when we are inside.
I'm also struggling with the fact that my body can't do the things it used to do. I'm trying to look solely at my post pregnancy progress, but its hard to forget that at this exact time last year, I was running a 5k 3 times a week and playing adult league water polo two nights a week. I was in great (for me) shape. Now, I'm struggling to run for 90 second intervals.
But it is getting easier every time that I work out.
And, I had a huge NSV (non-scale victory). I went down a pant size from a 16 to a 14... I'll be back in a 10 or dare I dream, an 8 in no time.
