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.
