    Pregnancy was never the end goal; being a mom was.

    2) How has your progress been this week? Shitty. I didn't take shakes to work for lunch all last week and ate like an ass all weekend.

    QOTW:  How do you prefer to exercise?  With a group of people?  At home alone?  At the gym?  What type of work outs do you like to do best? None of the above ;)  But if I must, I like a long walk all to myself.

  • @poppies717 - it's tough to resist cake! Good job!
    @nfp147 - how long have you been doing the shakes for? What different foods do you mix with them?
    @AprilH81 - congrats on losing 2lbs already!
    @KonaCoffeeBean - sorry to hear you caught a cold. Are you feeling better today?
    About 6 months now.  I'm finding they are really losing their effectiveness for me, so I'm giving them another month and I'll re-evaluate.  

    In the mornings I mix in mostly just frozen fruit: tropical mix; raspberries with a tablespoon of frozen lemonade concentrate; pineapples with a dash of coconut extract.  For lunch I use similar mixes, but add a handful of spinach and a tablespoon of ground flax seed.

    I have a list of 100 shake recipes.  I'll send you a PM with it (if I can).

  • I am going to attempt to join this.. probably won't really start anything until after next week though...

     

    1) Goals? Ultimately to lose 60lbs by our 10 year wedding anniversary in March. I need to keep my goals small though so I'm aiming for 10lbs right now. I finally made the call and am going back to my nutritionist office next Friday to get things going again. I did really well with them before and then fell off the wagon when I stopped going.
    2) How has your progress been this week? Haven't started anything yet. And it's CD3 so.. EAT ALL THE THINGS. 
    3) What is your "plan" (diet, workout regime, etc)? I'll nail down the diet more next week after I meet with the nutritionist, but I know it'll be vegan/gluten free with the occasional fish thrown in... same thing we've been doing for almost a year now (except I cheat WAY too much right now, which is the problem). Workout will start out very mild b/c I have a bum knee and exercise induced anxiety. Yes, it's a real thing.  Anyway, we've been biking every weekend though so that will continue. I also want/need to start lifting with the Bowflex again.
     
    4) Best part of your week? Sucking it up and calling the nutritionists office was a great starting point for me. I've been putting it off out off shame b/c I gained back everything plus more.
     
    5) Worst part of your week? Everything I've eaten the past 2 days, thanks to AF.
     
    QOTW:  How do you prefer to exercise?  With a group of people?  At home alone?  At the gym?  What type of work outs do you like to do best? I like to do fun stuff that doesn't feel like exercise... like biking or brisk walking with people or swimming. I also like weights if I have someone to do them with me. I don't like to workout alone at home bc I am afraid I'll die. (for real.. like I said, anxiety. lol) I don't do the gym right now b/c of anxiety but I do want to get back there eventually. We have a 24hr membership, but there isn't a convenient club near us anyway.  Thankfully, we live within walking/biking distance to some great trails so we take advantage of that.

    In Christ alone my hope is found. He is my LIGHT, my STRENGTH, and my SONG!

  • @madeline10L - For me, it's SO worth it. I have failed at so many "diets" but when I met with the nutritionist regularly several years ago, I dropped weight like it was no big deal. I dropped almost 30lbs in about 2-3 months and that was just changing my eating habits (no starving by any means, no "weight loss pills" or anything.. just normal, wholesome, clean food) I need restrictions and I need personal accountability. It's the only thing that works for me. Up until about 10-12 years ago, I was very underweight and couldn't gain weight, no matter what I did. I hated it. I developed some very bad eating habits though in order to put on weight (eating junk food) and then when I got a desk job and got a little older, everything flipped and now I have horrible eating habits and I can't lose weight. I need a nutritionist to keep me in check and teach me how to eat like a normal human  being :) Hopefully I'll have the same success I did before! Sorry, that was long.. :)

    In Christ alone my hope is found. He is my LIGHT, my STRENGTH, and my SONG!
