Before I get into the update are you on Snapchat? I am and I am looking for friends!
How appropriate is a weight loss update for the day after the SuperBowl. It could only be worse after Thanksgiving, lol
So yea we kinda fell off the second half of last year. There was some of this wonderful ice cream from Six Flags…
And my favorite sandwich from a local restaurant Delish. Unfortunately they closed so this was my last one….
And of course all the holiday eating (not pictured) so when I dared to visit my scale on January 1 for the first time since August I was up…..11 lbs 🙁
Not fun, but the damage was done. My family was doing a weight loss challenge to keep everyone motivated so I jumped on board. So far I have lost 6.3 lbs. since January 1. Here are some of my stats:
Starting weight Feb 2014: 216 lbs
Current weight Feb 2016: 172.9 lbs
Lowest weight ever: 164 lbs
Weight loss goal: 155 lbs
I have been toying with switching up my diet. For the past two years, I have been on a calorie reduction weight loss plan and it works, but I am starting to plateau. I am getting to the point where it is becoming necessary to be more mindful of the types of foods I am eating vs. amounts.
My current diet is trying to eat whole foods/organic as possible but I know there are some things I should cut/reduce in my diet. I have PCOS and from the research I have done, it is recommended to cut chocolate, dairy and coffee and to eat organic/reduce pesticides. I can say that since switching to organic foods, I do feel better and when I eat large amounts of chocolate, coffee, and dairy, I feel horrible. So I have been thinking about doing a Whole 30 challenge.
I chose the Whole 30 challenge over the 22 Day Revolution because I like their goals better. The Whole 30 is meant to remove all of the foods from your diet that can cause inflammation to give you a clean palate when it comes time to reintroduce foods. I am hoping to walk away from this with a greater knowledge of how my body reacts to certain foods.
Does anyone want to join me??? Has anyone else tried a Whole 30 or the 22 Day Revolution? I would love to hear about your experience!
