She gave me this analogy which helped me really get over the slow down of my progress and why these last 4 pounds are coming off slowly. She compared my loss to squeezing a lemon. When you make juice at first a lot comes out quickly, but then you have to keep squeezing to get the rest out. And before you are done to get the last bit out you really have to squeeze extra hard. Weight loss is like thatthose last few pounds you know are there are just stubborn and you have to work extra hard. I never thought of it like that, it really made more sense to me! So thanks for your great advice again Stacy!
I plan to crush the lemon lol
So now I am a woman on a mission! I am going to squeeze the last few pounds off in the next coming weeks and hit all my mile stones once and for all! First up will be hitting the big 100 pounds lost. Current I weigh 154.4 so that means I have 1.8 left to lose to make it. Then 4.4 to go till I hit lifetime!!!!
I am going back to basics, back to what I know how to do best, exercise hard and eat a little less. One serving of carbohydrates at breakfast (my 1/3 cup of oats) and then rest of the day lean protein and fruits and veggies! No refined sugars, no salt, and no dairy. I cut dairy out march 1st and it has made my stomach issues so much better! So its a little harder being gluten and dairy free but I have come to enjoy some almond milk! Plus it is a lot less carbs which helps with my over all goal ;)
Today I am prepping some chicken breasts with some Mrs. Dash and baking them for salad toppers for the week and I got in a great workout this morning at the gym!
How was your weekend?
