Since my first and only entry six years ago, I’ve gotten amicably divorced, begun and continue to be in a new loving, nurturing relationship, and moved to a new city.
I’ve been through two rounds of significant weight-loss and gain in my traditional style: Fast, unhealthy, and inconsistent.
I’m currently in the longest, healthiest period of weight-loss I’ve ever sustained, one which has required the two characteristics least natural to me: Patience and moderation. But I knew this time around I had to do this correctly and healthily. I’m in my mid-forties, so a slowing metabolism has been an added challenge, causing a couple lengthy, bewitching stalls that, surprisingly, has not defeated me.
I discovered that my diligent, robust cardio workouts would not counteract my over-fueling eating style, healthy as it is. After so much denial and resistance, I finally realized that I needed to reduce my calorie-intake, plain and simple. I realized that too many calories would still flummox weight-loss, or cause weight-gain, even if the food I was eating was organic, non-GMO, and grass-fed. I tried intermittent fasting to jump-start my middle-aged metabolism, and it seems to have worked. I focused my workouts more on body-weight exercises and light resistance training – squats, lunges, and planks. I do need to get back to doing cardio, but not for weight-loss.
For purely moral reasons, I have also switched to a vegan diet, which has had a positive side-effect on my already healthy weight-loss process. 2 months ago
It’s only taken about 6 years, but at least I can say I’m 35 pounds lighter than I was 6 years ago. :) 4 months ago
If I remain below 200 lbs for the next few weeks of this pregnancy and then lose 30 pounds like I did in the three days following J’s birth, I’ll be done with this goal about a week post-partum. (Read: right around Thanksgiving. LOL!) If not, I’m sure I can get my butt in gear and continue my workouts and such to thin back out. Having not been below 200 for two years, it’s such a bittersweet feeling to be 8.5 months pregnant and at my lowest weight in ages. Haha.
Here’s to hoping everything works out and I can be one hot momma after Sammy-Boy gets here. 4 months ago
I realize now that certain foods aggravate intolerances in my body.
I am starting to slowly but surely eliminate certain foods from my diet. It is very hard but in the end it will be well worth it. 7 months ago
