I'm ashamed to say that I pretty much lost all motivation towards dieting or exercising, and my weight's remained steady at 160 lbs, +/- 1 lb. That's still 2 lbs less than my starting weight, but I've been at 160 now for weeks, when I know I could've been dropping weight if I'd just kept on track.
Sooooooo.... Enough of my could-have's should-have's, and now I'm much more serious! I had a break-down the other day about how disgusting I look, and how I feel like I'm just getting bigger and bigger, and so at the end of my meltdown, I just thought, "How can I complain so much if I don't plan on doing something about it?"
So now I'm doing something! I'm dieting (which I wasn't doing before), and this is my third day of successful healthier eating. I've cut down portion sizes, drastically reduced my soda intake (it was pretty bad again), and am making healthier choices (apple dippers instead of fries, water as my drink, vegetable side instead of more complex carbs like a roll, etc). And something amazing... I actually feel truly hungry again! I was eating so often throughout the day that I never really got to that hunger point. It was always just, "Oh, I guess I could eat again." Know what I mean? So now, I'm actually waiting till I feel hungry, and then I eat something small and satisfying, like a chicken, bean and rice burrito with green beans as a side. And instead of snacking on chips, I'm snacking on things like honeydew.
Overall, I've been really satisfied with my diet, and as soon as it cools down some, I'll be out on the trails a lot more!
Oh that's WONDERFUL! I got stuck in a rut with food too for a while. I started noticing that I'd fill up my points with sweets. Ugh. I really thought AF was about to show, but still nothing thankfully.
I am really, really happy to say that it's still going GREAT! I even feel better physically and emotionally. The weight's coming off faster than I thought it would (I'm already down 5 lbs now, weighing 155 today, but I'm thinking that a lot of that was bloat from all the sugary foods I ate). I don't think that can be helped, though, because I know that I'm eating enough. I started a food diary just so I wouldn't worry, because it's easy for me to go overboard once I stick my mind to dieting. I'm just trying to eat when I'm hungry. Annnnnnd my milk supply has been up ever since I started dieting! Caleb is MUCH happier about that because he's such a fast eater!
