Once upon a time, weight was not an issue for me. I’m honestly not sure how or when it became one. I have always been fairly healthy, and attempted to keep healthy habits. When my current husband and I started seeing each other, I did gain some weight, but I was not really overweight, I was HEALTHY. After having JW however, I began to really put on weight. It’s like between having a whole new person in the house to take care of, and the pain from my c-section recovery, I gave up on healthy habits and traded them for comfort foods. Lots of comfort foods.
I am currently going about losing weight in two ways: I have started using Noom to keep me accountable and Emeals to meal plan and conveniently order my weekly groceries. I am also back to walking daily, and hoping to start running again. Those who know me personally know that I had to have a hysterectomy last year, and thankfully my doctor was able to clean up a TON of scar tissue from my c-section which should make running less painful… I’ve just been scared to test it too much.
I’ve been at it for a week now and have lost 3 pounds. According to Noom, I can expect to be down 12 more by February 10th (just in time to look a little trimmer for Valentine’s day!). I’m hoping that this is the case.
Are you trying to lose weight as well this year? Have you found a successful way to lose weight and keep it off? If so, please comment and give me some tips, I would love to hear whatever you have to say!
I should add- I cut out all carbonated beverages a few years back, and am now in the process of replacing sweet tea with lemon water. If I could cut out coffee, that would be awesome, but people may die.
