First Time Mom and Losing It: 22 Weeks Down

Monday, June 23, 2014

22 Weeks Down




Weigh In: I gained 15.8 pounds for an adjusted total weight loss of 48 pounds. I lost 13 pounds last week with the stomach virus and knew some of it would come back but I didn't know I would gain that much. I know it is my body adjusting to what I went through with the stomach virus but seeing a weight gain like that is still pretty shocking and disappointing.

Nutrition: So I have to admit that it hasn't been a great eating week. I finally got my appetite back and started eating things I craved like fast food. I didn't make healthy choices and even had an iced coffee several times this week. I also went out to eat on Sunday on another date night with the husband. Time to get back on track with the Skinny Jane 10 Day Challenge!

Exercise: Monday and Tuesday I was still recuperating. The rest of the week I walked tons. I hit my goal Wednesday through Sunday. Though I am enjoying the weather and walks I really need to get into the gym for a tougher workout. It is only a matter of time before my body adjusts to the walking and it will not be enough.

Goals:
  • Go to the Gym Three Times
  • Strength Training Three Times
  • Restart Plank Challenge
  • Complete 10 Day Skinny Burn Challenge
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

  1. We experience a few bumps on our weight loss journeys. Feel better soon, Michelle. After that, I'm sure you'll be back in your groove.

  2. You can keep indulging your cravings...try making mini steps with them until they become "good" cravings. Iced coffee is a great example...skip the whipped cream and sugar and its not such a big deal! :)

  3. Don't give up, my darling. Being unwell is not disappointing, it is a bump in the road. Now that you are getting well again from the virus, you can achieve your goals with more strength.

  8. I appreciate how honest you are. You are doing great and little set backs happen. You will get that momentum back!

  9. It'll probably even out again, and you'll see a loss again next week. I'm doing the plank challenge too, and walk, plus now swimming a couple of times a week where possible. Good to see there's someone else going through similar ups and downs (mine are all ups at the mo despite me eating much better, and exercising!)

  20. I can see how disappointing the weight gain could be. Just keep at it! I'm struggling to get rid of this belly fat. I even got a comment not too long ago whether or now I had a "bun" in the oven....

    ReplyDelete
  22. No! When I started eating junk after my hard work, I knew it was over. I kept making excuses for myself! You have done so well! I hope you keep going!

  24. Weight loss journeys just as life tends to give us ups and downs. You just have to find your resolve and bounce back

  25. Aww girl I know dieting is hard but try dieting by medical order while pregnant no sugar no fatties no yummies. Currently so depressed by the lack of sugar. The pounds lost while you are ill will always come back sooner or later hate the yo-yo effect.

  26. I hope the drastic shift on your weight doesn't affect your system but looks like you are managing it well.

    ReplyDelete
  27. You cannot and do not be disappointed with your progress. Weight gain is normal so there's no reason to be disappointed.

    ReplyDelete
  28. It's normal to experience bumps along the journey. What matter is that you acknowledge those bumps and never give up. Good luck this week :)

  34. It is great you are being honest with yourself and your readers about these mishaps. It puts more trust in you because everyone needs to know there is a human being doing this and humans mess up. But what I love about your posts is you get right back on track! You are doing great!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Sorry to hear you had a bug, that's never fun. Glad it's gone and you can get back on track now. :)

  36. You are so incredibly brave by telling your story in an honest way. making yourself accountable for your set backs only helps you go further in life and goals. it gives you the chance to think and go at it again with a new perspective.

  38. You are doing great! And you DON't need to feel bad about Iced Coffees. Just get them without sugar. OR add one packet of sugar yourself ( One packet of sugar is only 13 calories).
