Now that I'm losing weight consistently and my clothes are starting to look pretty silly…it's time to focus on getting toned up a bit. I mean, I'm thrilled that I'm losing weight and almost halfway to my goal, but I don't want to get to goal and be skinny-flabby.
That is why this Sunday I am going to start Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred! I'm going to be totally honest with you, I am kind of intimidated. I am worried about the intensity of the workouts and how it is going to effect my body. I guess the only way to find out is to give it a go!
Either way, more exercise and activity is in order. Not to speed up my weight loss, because quite frankly if I was losing any more weight, I'd be quite concerned. I can't even tell you the shock I experienced seeing 4 pounds gone on the scale this week, while it made me happy, it also concerned me. My weight loss has yet to slow down to 2 lbs or less, which I was sure it would have by now.
Don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining, I just don't want my weight to yo-yo and I know that slow weight loss (1-3 pounds/per week) is the best indicator that I won't just put a bunch of weight back on when I transition out of Medifast! Enough with the worries and concerns….did I mention that I can:
Fit back into my 7 jeans!!! Remember, that was Jeans goal #1!!! Now, my muffin top looks like it is back with a vengeance in this picture, but that is because the jeans are pretty tight still. I do believe I'll be able to wear them comfortably by the end of next week though!! Either way, I'm super happy. And…my muffin top in my regular clothes is almost completely gone friends!!
What little tips have you learned that have made a difference in meeting your weight loss goals?
I'm proud of these choices:
I'm staying on plan with Medifast!
Our whole family is eating better now (even Zion has been wanting more green veggies)!
I'd like to work more on:
Refocusing on getting full nights of sleep!
I totally cheated when:
I didn't really cheat at all this week, however; I've taken in a few more calories than what the plan would have me take in, and it really hasn't upset things at all. I'm still in shock that I lost 4 lbs!
How did you do this week?
