This week marks two months down for McFatty Mondays. I am loving the progress so far and you all are keeping me motivated! Two months ago I felt my worst...I just wanted to crawl in a hole and not show my face. I was embarrassed to see family and friends because I know they would see how big I had gotten.
I needed to make the change, I needed to save myself from getting any bigger. I wanted the next time I got pregnant to be a lot smaller so I didn't look and feel very bloated.
When I started I wasn't really thinking a ton about fitness, I knew I would exercise, but never thought I would train for a 5k. But here I am two months later, about to run 20 minutes straight tomorrow! I looked back to when I first started running, it turns out I have lost 5.6 lbs since beginning C25K. I completely recommend it to everyone! Your body completely transforms!
Yesterday I went out shopping to get a few new things. It turns out I am down 2 pants sizes! I was a 14 when I started and now I am down to a 10! Or at least a 10 in the brand that I got! And I bought a large shirt...not an XL! This is huge for someone with a larger upper body.
This is working, and I hope it is working for all of you too! I am so thankful I made the decision to make this journey public...it keeps me honest and it keeps me going. Like I said last week...this is a life change!
Here are this week's stats:
Starting weight: 200.8 lbs
Last week: 185.6 lbs
This week: 184.6 lbs
Loss (gain) this week: -1 lbs
Total loss: 16.2 lbs!
16.2 lbs in two months is great! I am officially 1 lb away from my wedding weight 2 1/2 years ago! This also means I lost about 6 lbs this month, which I will take...at this point I should make my 40 lb goal by July! That is one month earlier than I planned! I know it may not happen, but I think it can. I know I can even do better than I did this past month, especially with my eating! So we will see what happens!
I am not going to post goals for this week...just to survive it! It is my last 4 days of work, plus I have a lot of school work...so I just want to survive it! I hope everyone had a great weigh in today!
