When I say consistency, you say YEAH!
This week I lost 2.2 lbs and am very happy about it. At this point in my weight loss plan, I am hoping to lose an average of 2 lbs per week. I still have 23 lbs to lose, so this should be at least 11 more weeks. In order to do this I will stick to the same ole’ diet and make small increases/changes to the intensity, type, and length of my exercises. The reason for all the changes is for several reasons. First, in order to avoid plateaus, you must keep your body guessing. Next, the muscles may need time to recover from the previous days loads. Lastly, varying your exercises improves overall fitness and prevents mental burnout and injuries. Keep Reading
Let me just say first that plateaus suck! Last week I worked my butt off to bust my plateau and ended up losing 1.4 lbs that week. This week I worked half as hard and lost 2.4 lbs.

I stuck to the same diet of 100 calories per hour during both weeks. This week I went back to 1 workout a day. This is the nature of losing weight. Keep Reading
This week was a struggle for me. Despite the fact that I was doing everything right, my body was intent on doing it’s own thing. The week started with my Saturday weigh in of 164.6 lbs.

With sticking to my diet and all this exercise you would think I would be moving in the right direction. Nope! Tuesday morning I weighed in at 166.2. Keep Reading
This week I have still been plugging away at my weight loss goal. It has only been 3 weeks since I delivered my baby so I haven’t been able to be too aggressive. This week I lost a total of 2.2 lbs. I am very happy with this number. I have been consistent in my diet of 100 calories per awake hour and I have been pretty consistent in exercise this week too. I played tennis 2 days for 1 hour each and walked for 45 min on 3 days. Below are this weeks stats. Keep Reading

Following a week where I lost 10.3 lbs; it may seem that 3.9 lbs is a little lackluster. This is not the case at all! Losing weight is no easy feat. After a big loss week, I would expect to see a much smaller number. For someone who is (now only 166.8 lbs) this is a good number Keep Reading
After delivering a baby, many moms are excited to start whittling off the baby weight. However, they may delay starting an exercise program due to questions about when they should start and which exercises are safe. The easiest way to answer these questions is to listen to your body. Keep Reading
There is no doubt that 10.3 lbs in 10 days is a pretty fast and aggressive weigh loss amount for someone who is 181 lbs. This is especially true since I am not taking any supplements. However, I wouldn’t have it any other way. Keep Reading
