I’m a little late into the month but I noticed an old thread like this popped back up and since I am on my own weight loss journey I wanted to make a new one! I wasn’t too sure if the bee who made the original is still active or if any of the other bee’s on the thread were.
I know these kinds of posts have the tendency to die off but hopefully this one will stay alive! I liked the idea of starting a monthly one similar to the POAS thread.
Feel free to participate and if you feel confident enough, let’s add progress photos to this thread! I love seeing progress photos, it’s always a huge motivator for me personally.
Weight loss so far:
Exercise (routine and/or programs you use):
Diet (specific type, counting calories, track macros, vegan, etc):
Fav. Healthy Snack:
Positives so far:
Negatives so far:
Current Weight: (as of this AM) 162
Goal Weight: Short term – 150. Long term – 135-140
Timeframe: By Memorial Day or end of May for my short term goal (150lbs). My long term goal by 4<sup>th</sup> of July. I’d love to get to even 130 by the end of August.
Weight loss so far: 3lbs – started at 165lbs
Reason: For myself, to be happy with my body again and be more confident. I don’t like how I look currently so I’m doing it to look better by my standards and my standards only.
Exercise (routine and/or programs you use): Currently dealing with a somewhat serious back injury, so no physical exercise BUT I use Beachbody programs. Completed 2 rounds of 21 Day Fix (my favorite that I’ve tried so far). I also am on week 2 of a 3-week shred meal plan from a personal trainer.
Diet (specific type, counting calories, track macros, vegan, etc): No specific diet, but I have started calorie counting and since I’ve been doing that its trickled to me “watching” my macros. In fact, I think counting calories is what has helped me drop pounds thus far.
Fav. Healthy Snack: This is tough… I guess I have a few (most are according to proper serving size): pineapple, cottage cheese w/ dash of pepper, a good ole’ protein bar (Aldi USA – Elevation brand, flavor varies). I don’t snack that much honestly.
Positives so far: I’ve lost 3lbs by strictly my diet and no exercise! Feeling slightly more confident in certain clothes too.
Negatives so far: My back injury keeping me from any physical exercise. It was a pretty traumatic injury from impact. Currently waiting X-Ray results and a diagnosis from my chiropractor but I have this pit feeling that I may have fractured something.
