Week 3 results are in and the trend is still downward! Yay! Another 2.5 lbs gone!! Needless to say, I’m excited and happy with this trend! We have a little competition at the gym right now, so I have to keep myself in check and be happy with the good results I’m seeing. I am just a tad competitive, so that is slightly difficult. 🙂
Starting weight 2/26/2012 179
New weight 3/20/2012 160.9
Down a total of 18.1 lbs.
Next week I will have all the other measurements redone as well … but what I can tell you is, my size 14 pants are VERY loose and baggy and my size 12 pants are loose as well. I’ve had to make 2 extra notches in my belt and I can fit into a dress that was given to me a few years ago. Don’t know the size of the dress because it was mislabeled, but I can zip it up, though it is snug. Love these small victories.
- I’m adjusting to the gaps between meals better – not so hungry and mentally I have been able to be more at peace with everything. I still struggle, just not as bad.
- After going gluten, corn and dairy free several years ago, my seasonal allergies significantly improved. I still have occasional battles with allergies but they haven’t gone into full blown sinus infections like they used to. But I still had to blow my nose every morning when I got up and every night before bed. I’ve noticed over this past week, however, that I have NOT had to blow my nose. I don’t remember a time that I’ve ever gone without having to do that … I will certainly be taking note when the time comes to add food back in to see what was causing that!!
- RA pain in my feet also continues to get better. It was already starting to go away before I started this plan and it continues to improve!
- I’m enjoying slowing down some. Though it’s still hard when I see others around me working hard and the competitiveness begins to rise up in me. Good thing I have a trainer to keep me in check!
Enjoying life to the fullest!!
