Weight Loss Mission - Week 1 Update


Bust: 33.5” (Loss 0.5” from previous week)
Natural Waist: 29” (Loss 1” from previous week)
High Hip: 36” (Loss 0.75” from previous week)
Low Hip: 29” (Loss 0.5” from previous week)

Weight: 132.0 lbs (Loss 3.2lbs from previous week)
Body Fat Percentage: 28.1% (Loss 1% BF from previous week)

What contributed to my success this week?
• Eat relatively clean – I ate clean this week with the exception of 3 occassions where I snacked on gummies. My gummie addiction is extremely difficult to break. But other than gummies, I didn’t have any other junk, ie. chips, ice-cream, etc.
• Worked out 6 mornings in a row – 45 minutes on the Elliptical each morning.
• Ate 5 small meals daily with protein at every meal.
• Stopped eating as soon as dinner was done. Did not snack after dinner.

This weight loss thing is a battle for me. It may come easy for others but not for me. I have to consciously work at it. But I tell myself, one day at a time. If others can do it, so can I. And if you’re following along on this journey with me, if I can do it, so can you! We’ll all do it together. We’ll cheer each other along. We’ll be each others cheering section!

So, that’s my Weight Loss update for week 1. If you’re on a weight loss mission with me, how did you do this week?

You are doing great! Would you mind doing a post of some of the small meals that you eat throughout the day? I always need ideas and kinda just stick with the same foods and it definitely gets boring. And for the record I think that you are just beautiful the way you are but I know we are always harder on ourselves. Good luck and thanks for inspiring me to get off my a**!

Hi! I'm also on a mission to trim down this summer. I'm sticking to the no carbs at dinner time regime. I'm not tracking inches like you are, I'm just using my "skinny jeans" as a guide. Good luck and echoing Jadan's comment above, post some of your snack/meal ideas! Good luck!

Hi. I'm a fairly new reader and thought I'd just drop a note that I lost 30 pounds last year eating high protein/low carb. I also lost around 12% body fat and one of the huge keys to success was short, intense cardio interval workouts. I did between 20-30 minutes four or five times a week and you'll be surprised at how much more effective it is than longer lower intensity cardio. I'd be happy to send you a word.doc of the workout if you'd like. My email is jillianinc at yahoo.com. My blog is currently hidden for redesign and redo so if you come over to visit my blog is won't show. I'll be reopening my blog soon. Good luck!

Hey, we`re pretty similar in size (and angst...) I realized a couple of weeks ago that vacation suddenly loomed and my half-assed run once a week wasn`t going to cut it! I returned to Jillian Michaels 30-Day shred- it`s pretty awesome, and hard!
The exercises are super basic, but it`s an intense 24 minute workout. I would say I`m noticeably firmer already after 2 weeks. The main thing I like though is the length- it`s relatively easy to fit in (if you don`t count the hour I spend in recovery!)
