i only have a quick second to make this happy announcement:
i am wearing my old skinny jeans today!
i hit my target weight this morning (just barely, but i'll take it.)
i've been hitting my little goals slowly but surely but not posting about them since, well, i just figured it was T.M.I. (too much information-hehe).
BUT the end weight was met today! and really, those last ten pounds ARE the hardest and really, i haven't exercised in almost two months (minus playing with my kids and the random family stroll around Laie)
so this brings me to my sad conclusion, this is the fastest and easiest i have ever lost weight and although i am sure nursing a baby helped me some really-
I WAS CAREFUL ABOUT WHAT I ATE
for maybe the first time in my life.
i'm not 18 anymore. :(
did i do free saturdays? no, those were nasty and out of control.
did i do atkins.
southbeach? YOU diet? grapefruit? hollywood? insert trendy diet name here?
nope, nope, nope.
i just didn't eat a ton of crap. that's it.
and then for the last five pounds i joined my friend in trying to break our sugar addiction.
because i know from my own experience and a million others around me that once the impossible to live with diet is over you gain weight back because no body lives on extremes forever.
so, if i got my body to crave sugar less then when i entered the real world again i wouldn't yo-yo or balloon- making all my hard work for nothing.
the first week of breaking my sugar addiction was not easy because i didn't even realize how much of my everyday diet was so sugary. i would be like irritated at night- like i could feel it under my skin and then from there on out it got easier and easier.
i get my frozen yogurt with toppings once a week and i am good and as the weeks go by, i feel less and less like i want those toppings, which is nice. i can enjoy them but not HAVE to have them and all the other junk i used to eat.
so, that's it. i'm keeping it up for curiosities sake, maybe until christmas. if you are interested in my results i will let you know.
it feels good to be more healthy, less addicted to sugar, and more able to fit into my clothes and run around with my kids. i have toning to do for sure, your body just changes as you have kids, it's a fact, but i feel good and that makes me happy!
