I haven't blogged in several weeks, but I'm trying to get back in to it. I signed up for a free 28 day health challenge via a community health support group on Facebook.
I started 1/2 and am currently in the middle of the 2nd week. Prior to the weigh in on 1/2, the last time I had weighed in was on Saturday 12/30. I was 317. I decided to go off plan for new years eve and day. I decided to weigh in on Tuesday night 1/2 and the scale read 325.2. I was a bit disappointed at first thinking - geez, I totally gained 8 lbs in 2 days, but I was determined to get back on track.
I had run out of fuelings and was waiting for my order to come in. In the mean time, I was counting my calories and making sure my macro levels were consistent. I submitted my first update on 1/9 with a pic showing the scale at 312. I reported a week 1 loss of 13.2 lbs. Now that felt amazing! I knew it would slow down the 2nd week as my body was adjusting back to the plan, but it was a huge motivation booster. It is amazing how quickly the body retains weight when I eat a lot of carbs.
