I am back on the wagon! Hooray! My husband got hurt at work in March and couldn't help with the kids and I just couldn't keep up with everything. Thankfully he's fully recovered and we are back to being a THM family. Actually it was Daryl who got me back on plan. One day he said "Would you make me some skinny chocolate? I miss it and all this sugar is killing me."
I have been back on plan almost three weeks. I did gain back some wieght during my subbatical. At one point I was back up to 197. This morning I was 185.6 which is close to the 185 I was when I went off plan in March. The last 3 week I have been going between 183.4 & 186.6 mostly hanging at 185.5.
While I have lost all my baby wieght from both pregnancies this 185 range is really where my body likes to hang out and this is where I feel the real hard work begins.
I am trying to be realistic and optimistic. After all my last pregnancy wieght was 233. In light of that I have lost right at 48lbs in less than a year. 20 of those where THM pounds. That's definately worth celebrating but I am nervous at the same time, that the plan won't work for my real weight issue. My non-pregnancy, I am just fat weight. Lol. And now that Ariella is sleeping through the night and nursing alot less I don't have that for an extra boost. :-/
I finally started excersizing this week. Its about time I got my butt in gear, literally! So as promise I am going to put my scale away til Aug 12th. My goal is to fit into the size 14 skinny jeans I got at the thift store last week. So as I figure it I have been on plan a total of 12 weeks ish total and lost right at 20lbs. At the end of this month I might consider doing a Fuel Cycle.
Its good to be back in the groove. Happy THMama-ing today.
