I have now officially lost 11 pounds, and a total of 11 inches!!! I am so excited about this turn of events. There are two weeks left in my program and I need to work extra hard to lose those last 9 pounds to reach my goal and then I will be half way to my long term goal.
I was a skeptic, I will readily admit that, I didn't think the diet component would be that big of a deal, but apparently it is. So after struggling with it for a bit, I have adopted it into my new routine and things are going well. I still would like to indulge every once in awhile and have some tasty treats, but I am refraining for now because I want to win the competition but also because I am determined to see this through. My treat after the six weeks will be a night out to have a decadent dessert.
But I will keep up with the food plan and the diet plan. I think that will definitely help, but I will have to adopt some extra workouts to do at home if I do not win this competition to work out with a personal trainer. I can always continue to sign up with the group classes, but I think in April for sure I want to be working out hard core for April, May and June so that I can be in my best shape and learn to maintain my weight, because that's going to be my next big challenge.
I have lost weight in the past, but it's keeping that weight off and down with which I struggle. I mean I can't even blame everything on the pregnancy, I gained a bunch of weight before I got pregnant and then my eating when I was pregnant didn't help matters. So the next habit I must teach myself is moderation and not doing things in excess.
Any ideas how to do that??
