This week more than makes up for last week's total bomb in the scale department. I'm down 3 1/2 pounds! Finally some movement! But what's even better than that is that I can (finally) tell that my clothes are starting to fit differently.
I grabbed a pair of jeans and pulled them up
Progress (no matter how small)? I'll take it!
Oh, I should also mention (because I think it has aided majorly in the scale movement) that I completely cut out refined sugar and artificial sweeteners about a week and a half ago. This is no small feat, but I remember it helping last year (before the pregnancy) with not only losing weight, but feeling normal again and feeling like I had some sort of control over my emotions which, let's face it, everyone appreciates. After being off the stuff for about four days the cravings were pretty much gone and I felt energized and refreshed and normal.
So, yeah, there you have it!
Total lost: 25.5
Still to lose (to ultimate goal): 29.5
