Weight Loss Journey: Week 2, 3, and 4

Oh no... I fell behind!

I've been meaning to check in but wouldn't you know it, as soon as Mom wants to go on a diet, a tooth comes in... make that two teeth. And do you know what teething babies do... or don't do? Sleep!

It's super hard to not eat bad when you're just tired and really don't want to prep a proper meal. I like to eat my feelings and I get sad when I don't sleep.

Add in one more fun factor, a visit from Aunt Flo too. Boo.

But despite all that, Week 2 check in!

My Stats: Week 2

Current Weight: 143lbs
Goal Weight: 135lbs
Pounds Lost to Date: 5lbs


Boom! Still lost two pounds aaaaaand I put on my pre-pregnancy jeans and I could button them!

Talk about something to celebrate. Those jeans were kind of loose on me when I got pregnant, but I will gladly take it!

Now, I'll admit, week 3 I was not good. My husband and I were out shopping Sunday and I got a pumpkin spice latte. He was home sick Monday due to his asthma, so I got a pumpkin spice latte. I had a bad nights sleep one night and the next day, he brought me a pumpkin spice latte. Coffee shop Saturday? Yes, I had a Pumpkin Spice Latte.

And it shows.

My Stats: Week 3

Current Weight: 142.5lbs
Goal Weight: 135lbs
Pounds Lost to Date: 5.5lbs


Well, it's a loss right?

This week, ohhh, it's hard to look. I've had Chinese food, a burger, pasta and lordy, all that darn halloween candy!

My Stats: Week 4

Current Weight: 145lbs
Goal Weight: 135lbs
Pounds Lost to Date: 3lbs


Ugggggggh. I'm angry, I'm upset, Noooooo. But this is how it goes.

All honesty, I'm really in need of a boost, I've been looking into something to get me there. I'll keep you posted on that. I feel like my body is just a little off right now, like its not processing foods as well as it should, you know? With recently having a baby it could be a number of things! I have a Doctor's appointment this month, I plan to talk to my Doctor about my weight struggles. Maybe look into having my thyroid checked and such.

But for now, I'm upping my exercise and trying my hardest to eat well. It's that time of year that it just becomes flat out difficult to do so if you love food, at all. A

And I love food.

See you Friday!
