Came to check in.

 

I have started to work on hitting that plateau. Sometimes I feel like whenever I get close to breaking it, I get stuck. So far I have lost a little bit of weight (now between 153-152.6) and I want to get out of that 150 range. I am so close! I have started on Pump It Up The Ultimate Workout. It has a great dance portion and the high energy aerobic part is great! I also found the fitness blender portion on youtube and it has pretty good strength training exercises. Maybe if I do cardio 6x a week, strength training 2-3x a week with a rest day of just a relaxing swim, I can get over this.

I think one reason I wasn’t losing weight was because I wasn’t eating enough. I know this sounds strange but if you eat too little (under 1,200) calories then your body reacts weird. Of course you have to eat healthy food but make sure you eat enough of it. I did eat too little but yesterday I ate enough and was able to lose a little bit more weight than usual.

Current weight: 190 (!)

I’m short, so I really need to lose a good chunk, but I’m going to start with 20lbs and see how it looks and feels. I don’t want to give up cheese or beer (don’t laugh), so I have my work cut out for me!

I was determined to order a dress at my current size and ignored everyone that said I would lose weight before the wedding.

Well, we ordered the dress wedding size 18 in February and I have now lost 30 pounds to date!  Hoping to lose 10 more lbs before my first dress fitting next month.  Myfitnesspal has been instrumental in my weight loss.  It really helps put your calorie intake in perspective.

Last night I had my first excersize class in years…. BELLY DANCING!! Woot. Yes, I’m pretty sore, but it was really fun and I’m motivated to keep going.
