New Plans

18 Jun

So, last week I came to a decision. Yes, I’ve been losing weight, but recently it’s been slow and stalled. Losing 1/2 Ib is great, but not when I’m trying to fit in a wedding dress in less than 3 months. My goal is to make it to goal (140) in two and a half months… That’s about 12 Ibs. I think it’s doable. It will be hard, but worth it. I’m going to stick to weight watchers and I am going to keep tracking and going to the gym, but I will also cut out the white stuff for a few weeks to rev up my metabolism — no breads, pastas, flours, rice, potatoes, grains, sugars, desserts. I’ve done this before, and I know it isn’t sustainable long-term, but I think it will shake things up enough so that my metabolism can maybe lose at 1 lb a week again.

So, plenty of vegetables, proteins, dairy and exercise!

I also went wedding dress shopping on Saturday and found a dress — talk about motivation! The fact that I’m getting married soon is just now hitting me.

I got a new app to help keep me motivated on the elliptical — the elliptical app by Lolo… So good! Makes me sweat in no time!

And finally, a non-scale victory: I fit into a pair of size 8 capris at New York & Company. Now, granted their sizes are always a little big, but I will take what I can get!!!

I’m excited to be active and healthy this summer, and I cannot wait to see what this summer holds for me!


Getting my gym on!


And happily getting my O’s on! (look at that thin face! Almost there! 12 more lbs!)

    Wow, I’ve read your whole story practically and I’m so inspired. I am going to follow you for motivation and if you would like to follow me too and help motivate me that would be awesome. Keep up the good work, you look awesome! I am getting married next Spring so I’m in the same boat as you, hopefully I have the same results ๐Ÿ™‚

    I love this post! You are so honest with where you are at. A Pound a week is a very attainable goal! Keep going girl!
