6 week weigh-in

So this is my 6 week check in during my 8 week fitness overhaul lead by How Does She Do It Mom's lovely Carrie.

Since the last weigh-in on December 23 - Christmas Day and New Years have both come and gone.

My family did things a little differently this year when it came to the holidays, and my Dad's family offered brunch and my Mom's family only had a plate of cookies served. No meal. Boy does that help! No plates and plates of dinner followed by desserts and then leftovers.  I had to refuse the homemade cookie box from my aunt and grandma this year. It was hare to say "no" on a sentimental level, but I know if I have sweets in the house...I eat them. They just split the goods across everyone else, so no waste.

In addition to the holidays, my daughter was fairly sick. I'm an emotional eater, and that tested my willpower. Because we only had good options in the house, I still maintained control (for the most part).  Of course, with Babygirl sleeping in my bed...I got little sleep AND exposure to her virus, so working out has been sporadic this past week.



Despite all of that...

...after 6 weeks...

...and a total of 11.5 lbs lost...


 I had to ditch the green (maternity) tank because it was so saggy. :-)

You look Fan-freaking-tastic!

OH MY GOD.

I am so happy and frankly inspired by you!

I'm going the whole portion control route of dieting since I'm a lazy ass and can't motivate myself to work out unless its doctor prescribed (physical therapy).

You are just so beautiful!

Also, I apparently wasn't following you.. Which is obviously not true.

but I fixed that.

Thanks, Ella! I am very excited! Ditching the carbs and sugar did it for me! I haven't cut my hair since I started the diet so that I can look extra spiffy for the last weigh-in. Feeling a bit shaggy right now! :)

Thanks for all the positive feedback! I do appreciate it! Two more weeks on the program - but I really have changed my relationship with food. Hope to take what I've done on this program and incorporate it into my family's eating habits for years to come!
