Week 3 and I am down another 1 pound. I was hoping for a little more, I felt like it was going to be more. But I'll take it! That is 5.5 lbs lost in Oct and just 5 lbs to my original goal weight. The Hubby has been out of town for two weeks and just returned and said he saw and felt a noticeable difference in me. He also said I seemed really excited about cooking and happy. The main thing I have noticed is that I have "de-puffed" all over.
My clothing is very loose all the sudden. Really cute cargo pants I got this summer (from the Loft, they are onsale for $23 now!) fit perfectly or a little tight and now they have a baggy butt and the Hubby said I shouldn't wear them anymore. They're my favorite pants! But I think I lose these last pounds from my upper thighs and rear-end. w00t! to that! I carry quite a bit of weight there. My waist measures at 28 inches this morning, but my hips as 39 inches. I'm curvy. Even at 196 I was curvy.
No cheating or going off Fast Track this week. I did have 4 Dark Chocolate squares a few days, instead of the limit of 2. But I don't consider that any big sin. I have been getting really creative with my food and feel I can recreate any missing grain or starch with a veggie. It seems that I have a social event once a week and probably have 2 glasses of White Wine those nights. Otherwise I don't drink alcohol. I don't have Zevia or any sugar alcohols on Fast Track either.
The folks over at Zevia asked me to write the first article for their new Weight Management Blog. I was really honored to do that! I hope you all are still doing great on the Fast Track, Belly Fat Cure or whatever you are doing. The key is to KEEP DOING IT EVERYDAY. Even on days you don't want to, or when you don't think it's working.
