Week One

I made it through week 1, barely! On Thursday I totally broke down, cried on the floor and ate about 1/4 cup of ice cream! AAHHH! The sad thing was, was that it wasn't satisfying. So I stopped eating it. Friday went really well. Saturday, I decided to give myself a cheat day (don't judge!) because my family kept eating such yummy treats around me as we watched General Conference, and I was weak and caved in. I ate Oreo cookies and had a burger from Wendy's. But it felt good and I got over the cravings, and I jump started my metabolism, since it had to go into overdrive to burn all those calories! :) I know that I am not perfect, and I caved way too easily, but I will learn as I go on this journey!

I did really good today, staying on the program and watched everyone around me eat yummy snacks and a pulled pork dinner, but I was strong and kept my goals in mind!

I was very consistent with the workouts through the whole week. I never missed one day! So good job out of me for being strong in that area!! :)

I weighed myself and I lost 1 pound and 1.5 off my hips in the first week!! So during all those breakdowns and one free day I still lost!!

Now, my meals are ready for next week, and my goals are set, and I am determined to make it through the week without any emotional breakdowns or a free day!

Wish me luck!!


  1. Girl this is awesome! And I don't know what you are talking about the fat around your mid section. What? I don't see it. you are tiny. I am having my baby on Thursday so give me a few weeks to heal and I may be calling you for some good advice to shed these pounds. I was so bad this time and gained way too much. And it didn't help that I started out 10 pounds heavier than my comfort weight. So I'm going to need a good plan and goal to lose 50 to 60 pounds! Agh! Depressing. But I will do it. I did it before but before I only had 35 to lose so this sounds way to hard and very depressing when I like of losing 60 pounds. But anyway sorry for all that random info. You look amazing!

  2. Requel you are having your baby on Thurs?! Wow! How exciting!! If it makes you feel any better I had to lose 40-50 lbs with both of my pregnancies, so it can be done! :) Good luck with everything! Can't wait to see your baby!
