Weighed in this morning at a new low- 130! Can I seriously be only 5 lbs away from my goal weight? DD won't be 1 until July which means I'm doing SO much better than I did with DS (I got pregnant again just as I had reached my goal after him and started gaining weight the following week, sigh). I really have to make sure that with my next pregnancy I don't gain another 50+ pounds. Bigger is NOT always better.
I felt like I had gotten stuck in the mid 130s for so long, it is really exciting to see them coming to a close. I might actually have to buy some new summer clothes that fit me which, ugh, I hate shopping, but it will be nice to be looking at smaller sizes. Maybe I won't dread it so much this time (yeah right, I still hate it).
I mentioned before that DH and I decided for health reasons to move away from the overly refined grains and sugars and chemicals and I know that it made a huge difference (5 lbs in 2-3 weeks!) but if I were just avoiding them to lose weight there is no way I'd be able to last. People say things like "___ doesn't taste as good as skinny feels" and things like that, but...maybe they aren't as good a cook/baker as I am, lol. Oh well, I just need to view this new challenge and march forward. I made a 100% whole wheat chocolate cake sweetened with raw honey and it was awesome! If I can keep making things like that I won't have any troubles.
pacificbliss- how are the back troubles coming along? It's nice if the pain killers are assisting in your weight loss, but I'm sure that you'd rather feel better.
trekkingirl- I hate stepping on the scale in the days after I see a loss too, I'm always afraid it was a fluke! How is returning to work going?
Keep up the good work ladies!
