I'm very pleased with the last couple of weeks. We went on vacation two weeks ago, and a trip to the beach was not kind to me... I overindulged, and bloated two whopping pounds (I know, I know. ;) Not bad.) I wasn't too worried, though; vacation's vacation, and we never get them.
So I buckled down, and though I haven't been exercising like I want, I have been maintaining my nutrition (I don't diet.) As of my official weigh in, I've lost the two pounds I'd gained over vacation (meaning it was probably water weight) PLUS two more! So I'm actually down from my pre-vacation weight of 188.6 to 186.2!
That feels GOOD. I haven't weight this little since before I had my last child!
This brings my total weight loss from since September 2011 to 25 lbs! I also started back exercising Saturday and felt like I was starting over. I missed this morning because I stayed up till 4 AM playing Reckoning. Ah well. Will get in a walk tonight, weather permitting. I'm still pretty sore from Saturday, though...
I'm also well on track with my calories for the day. I was feeling snacky, and made myself a quick half-strength protein shake, and my calories are still only halfway through the day, so I'm making really good progress to maintain this momentum. Next week, I want to see 185 in my weigh in!
I do want to thank you guys for all your support over the last two weeks... it has been instrumental in this little victory. Without your kind words and support, I don't know that I would have been as motivated to DO this.
