So, this week was interesting as usual and I’m not sure what inspired me, but I took some updated weight loss photos and posted them side by side with my “before” picture and I was completely overwhelmed with the response!
Before I show you the pic (don’t scroll down there and peek), I’ll just give you a little run down of the week. I discovered a new place to get a good salad in town. It’s a little local burger joint called Chip’s Burger Village. Their chef salad was so good and so big that I actually felt full after eating it!
I realized about half way through the week that I have been eating only salad during the day and that could really be contributing to my exhaustion. I have been tired and cranky and I think I’m not getting enough protein. My boy and I love to go out to eat, but that just leads to me ordering another salad that I love. However, that chef salad that I mentioned actually has quite a bit of protein on it. So, there’s that.
The plan this week is to get more protein in (as soon as I start feeling better, today has been a bad tummy day) and to maybe even start trying some exercise to get my energy up. We’ll just have to see how that goes.
Okay, so here’s the updated weight loss photo (and then keep reading for my weight loss this week)
Do you remember the “before” pic at 369.8 lbs?
So, yeah, there’s a difference, and yes, I still have a long way to go, but I am actually quite proud of my 4 months and almost 40 lbs! And guess what…
I lost 1.8 lbs this week!
I’m at 330.2 lbs now! I was really hoping for 2.2 because that would have put me right at 40 lbs, but as it is I have lost 39.6 lbs in 4 months. I feel great (except this tummy thing today) and Howard is still right there with me. He finally passed me up this week and he has lost 39.8 lbs in 4 months. (MEN…grr!)
Give me a couple more months and I’ll post another updated weight loss photo. For now, it’s just about time for me to start shopping for some new jeans. I was just able to buy new bras and I love how they are holding the girls up nice and making my rib area look even smaller.
