Weight Loss. Sigh.

March 14, 2012 at 10:00 AM 2 comments

The Newlyweds on a Budget 10 pound challenge ends in four weeks. Thanks to the contest I’ve been fairly focused on my goal of losing weight from my recent pregnancy. I cut back on soda, (something I never drank while pregnant but really craved after my son was born), and started taking daily walks uphill while pushing a stroller.

I thought I was right on track until the grocery store ran a sale on Entenman products. The buy-one-get-one bargain was simply too hard to pass up and I came home with not one but two chocolate cakes! On top of that my family and I went back to the beach this past week. I don’t know why, but I have the hardest time eating healthy when I’m down there.

I’ve lost nine pounds so far, but my goal was actually to lose twice that much. While my jeans are feeling looser my bathing suits are still much too tight. I can blame some of that on my expanded chest size, but the extra weight around my belly is undeniable.

I think I should hang my bathing suit over the fridge in my kitchen. Maybe the daily reminder of my goal will help me get there faster!

    Congrats on the 9 lbs lost! Don’t beat yourself up too much–take it one day at a time. I’m always amazed how little changes add up over time. There are a few months left before bathing suit season. 🙂 good luck!
