Weigh-In Wednesday

It's Wednesday which means it is time to bring back my Weigh-In Wednesday posts!! Whoot whoot!! 

Not gonna lie, I missed doing these posts once a week. I just looked and the last one I posted was on April 2nd. That was two and a half months ago. So needless to say, I have some major updates for you guys today!

Let's start with my nutrition. Things seem to be going okay here. I have been struggling a bit these last few weeks because we cut my calorie intake down from 1550 calories a day to 1450 a day. You wouldn't think that a 100 calories would be a big difference, but it really is! You notice it, especially when you are starving and don't have any calories left for the day. It sucks. My biggest issue has been that I need to find some different snacks. I love Peanut Butter and I love mixed nuts which are very healthy and all around good for you. However, the calories are very high and on their own don't fill me. So I have been working on pairing them with different fruits and veggies to try and find something more filling. It's a work in progress for sure, but I think I am figuring things out. 

Then add the fact that any day that I am not lifting weights, I have to keep my carbs under 30 g a day and that throws a whole other wrench into it. It hasn't been easy navigating through all of the nutritional changes, but once I do get things figured out, I do pretty well with it. 

My workouts are more consistent than ever. I am still doing Zumba on Tuesdays and Thursdays and sometimes on Saturdays. It depends on what is going on that weekend. And I am lifting weights on Monday, Wednesday and Fridays. I feel myself getting stronger each day in the gym and it is a feeling that I am seriously in love with. Not to mention that I have some serious definition on my arms, it is pretty freaking cool. I amaze myself more and more everyday with how much I am able to accomplish. It has made me realize that I really can do whatever I put my mind too. As long as I work hard, I will be able to accomplish it and it is a pretty cool feeling. 

Now for the good stuff. As of my last Weigh-In Wednesday post, I was at 177 lbs. As of this morning I am down to 163.2. That is another 13.8 lbs, which puts my total weight loss at 59 lbs since November of 2013. That is huge! I can't even begin to tell you how proud I am of everything I have accomplished. Although my weight loss seems to have slowed down these past few months ( I was losing about 10 lbs a month there for a while) I am still pushing myself as hard as possible and still seeing results. No matter how small the results are, they are still results and I will take that any day! 

Just a few more things I want to mention. When I started this whole journey back in November I was wearing a size 18 in jeans and anywhere from a L to an XXL in tops. As of today I am in size 9 jeans and most of my tops are either Smalls or Mediums. I still can't believe how much my body has changed in these past eight months. It is crazy. And then you see a picture like this and just think WHOA!!! I have changed a lot!

That's all I have for today's Weigh-In Wednesday. Thanks for stopping by and seeing how things are going. Hope you guys are having a fabulous Hump Day!
