This is the big day where I finally announce my weight again. And I have pictures!
I don’t think I can possibly say anything else about the Whole30 program, but here are my earlier posts if you are curious:
The day I started Whole30: 255.5 pounds
30 days later:
Total Weight Lost on Whole30 = 15 pounds (!)
Total Weight Lost in 2012 = 22.5 pounds (!!!!)
The Progress Pictures:
(I wish you could see the definition in my arms better in the picture above – it’s much more apparent in real life!)
Next week I’ll be able to share the inches I lost and the change in my body fat percentage because I’m getting those measured on Friday.
I absolutely insist I will not participate in any more ridiculous “lifestyle” plans. I’m going back to eating real food in realistic portion sizes. It was helpful to me to keep my dairy and sugar intake low and I know it’s best if I can minimize my grain intake as well but I will be handling that in a much more realistic and sustainable way from now on. And the food journal is going to make a comeback when I get home from my trip.
My energy bounced back within the first 48 hours of reintroducing grains. This means I’ll be going back to my swimming and because I’m being foolishly optimistic I’m considering running as well (I predict that will last a few days before I remember how much I hate it). And I’m still doing strength training with my personal trainer.
But in interest of full disclosure, I treated myself to a cheat meal last night with my friend Betsy so I could finally have that delicious slice of pizza I’d been dreaming about for the past 30 days!
It was everything I hoped and dreamed it would be and now I have quieted my pizza craving. I wasn’t craving the chocolate frozen yogurt but it was pretty delicious anyway!
Friday is the final weigh-in for the contest at my gym so keep your fingers crossed for me! I really want to win this one!
Your turn: What are you proud of this week? How are your goals coming along?
