Weight Loss Results
Week one went pretty well…until I got to the weekend. I worked out twice a day Monday through Thursday and once a day on Friday. Didn’t make it at all on Saturday or Sunday. And my nutrition went to crap on Saturday and Sunday.
Here’s how it went down. Troy and Zeke went on a camp out Friday around six. I had made a pot of low calorie vegetable stew and was prepared to have a light dinner and hit the gym. Until…I took a ride with my sister to run some errands and she asked if I felt like sushi for dinner. I have a serious weak spot for sushi. And I thought to myself, “You’ve done really great this week! Reward yourself! Have some sushi!”
This saying comes to mind that I saw on Pinterest:
So true! I totally reward myself with food! I need to come up with alternatives! As far as Saturday and Sunday went, I did okay, but could have done better. I had little cheats both days – a slice of pizza on Saturday and a burger from McDonald’s on Sunday. And those “little cheats” cost me around 500 calories each! In spite of my small slip ups, my results were fantastic!
Here are my measurements from this morning:
Week 1 Weight: 272 pounds
Week 1 Measurements:

And here is where I started:

Weight Loss Results
Woohoo!! So I have lost a total of 6 inches AND 6 pounds! Even with my little weekend backslide, I exceeded my weight loss goal by two pounds! I’d love to lose 15 pounds this month, but secretly the goal in my head is to lose 20, so I’m tracking for that, which is really exciting!
Imagine what I can possibly do this week if I don’t reward myself with food this weekend. I’d love to lose another six pounds! That would put me at 266 and only 4 pounds away from my post pregnancy weight two years ago.
How did you do this week? What are some suggestions for rewarding weight loss without sabotaging your progress?
