Still playing catch up on my blog; this is a wrap-up of the week after Thanksgiving. This is week 5 of my Slow-Carb Diet, and I am so excited to be home in my kitchen after a weekend with my foodie family for the holiday. Now it’s just me and my food, nobody coming at me with something delicious. So why isn’t this easy? Holy cow! Why am I eating this? Why did I snitch on that? What is happening here?
We are all sick with gunk, and we are all exhausted. I did not work out any this week because of pure exhaustion. My cold symptoms aren’t very bad, not as bad as my boys, but I am flippin’ tired! After some struggles getting back on the clean eating bandwagon, I finished the week nicely. I was shooting for a new low weight for 2012, and I had to meet that goal by eating well since I was not working out at all. Then towards the end of the week, I took every single one of us to the doc to find out we all had sinus infections, and would need antibiotics. My neck/base of skull area is also aching in a new, sinister way. Man, I can’t wait for this junk to be finished with us. No time for discomfort now, it’s time to pull out the tape measure and step on the scale.
Week 5 weigh-in:
Lost 0.8 lbs to reach a new low for 2012 of 203.6 lbs.
Lost 2 inches in circumference (this was from measurements taken two weeks ago)
I am so pleased with these results the week after Thanksgiving! Yay for LOSING inches over the two week period that included Turkey Day.
And a drumroll please for the results from my first month of following the Slow-Carb Diet:
Weight Loss for Month 1 = 9.6 lbs.
Inches Lost in Month 1 = 10.25 inches
The weight loss has been slow these past few weeks, but do you see those inches lost? WOW!!! That was the sum of inches lost from my arms, waist, hips, and legs. It did not include bust, upper thighs, or my muffin top. Boy does that feel good!
