I know that it’s been a while since I’ve posted, so let me catch you up.
I’m down a total of 6.6 pounds in 6 weeks. Mostly, I’ve had small losses and actually gained .2 pounds this past week. I didn’t track and let myself emotionally eat, so I can’t say that I’m surprised. I’m actually surprised that that’s all that I gained.
Working out must be my saving grace. K and I tried a chair and a pole dance workout class and it was so much fun! We really felt the burn in out butt, abs, and other muscles, and we worked up a good sweat. I definitely recommend trying it! Don’t worry- heels are not encouraged and stilettos are NOT allowed. I also met with a different trainer that actually took the time to listen to my and my workout history and goals. He out me through a great workout using just my own body weight and a 25 pound plate.
Let’s see… as far as food goes. Well… That hasn’t been my strong suit lately, but I’ve been better. I’ve definitely been letting myself emotionally eat, but whereas before WW I would order a pizza or eat half a block of cheese, I’ll make popcorn and melt butter on it.
K and I haven’t been eating dinners together lately, which I admit that I miss. It was a big source of motivation for me, and I really enjoyed it. I’m hoping that we can get back into it.
My biggest success lately involves meetings. Last weigh in, I didn’t want to go because I thought that I had gained weight and I skipped it. Now my boyfriend is very supportive and just wants to help, so he talked me into going the next day, which I did, and I actually lost a pound! I wanted to skip this weigh in too, and I wasn’t going to go to the gym until K texted me and we did both. That was a major win for me, even though I had a slight gain.
