I’ll give you a fitness update in a minute, but first I wanted to report a small victory.
Yesterday I had a doctor’s appointment. This is usually a source of intense anxiety due to one simple reason – the scale.
There is NOTHING like being a plus size woman and having to step on the scale in front of a health professional. It. Sucks.
So yesterday was different. Yesterday, I was able to get on the scale knowing that I had lost weight. Granted, my doctor was sick and didn’t comment, but who cares? Not me. I was ecstatic!
Here’s my workout plan right now:
30 Day Shred – On week 1. I may be here for a while, folks. I like this workout because it’s so short, but intense. I like the stuff Jillian says (and if you had told me 5 months ago that I would *like* Jillian and her methods, I would have thought you were smoking crack) during the routines – I find it helpful.
Nutrition – I am trying VERY hard to eat enough calories. I still find myself slipping into the old mentality of my mom’s thinking about eating the fewest calories possible.
Soda – Notice this one gets its own category? I am allowing myself a few a week to help with the feeling of deprivation.
And for the overall results: I have lost a total of 17 pounds!! I am THRILLED! I am almost at 20. | | this close.
I can’t wait. To be able to say that I have lost 20 pounds (and then more of course) is going to feel fantastic!
