It's happening slowly, but it's moving. Yahoo!
I started off at xxx.x weight. Yeah, you didn't think I'd be sharing it did you? I'm not THAT brave yet! That weight was on September 4th. I started the Let's Get Physical challenge with a group of peeps coordinated by Wendy, of Wendy Nielson: Writing a New Story. We have a few more weeks to go, but since September 4th, I have weighed in a few times. Lost a little, gained a drop, lost a few more drops.
And after Tuesday morning's weigh-in I'm down 4.6 lbs. Four-point-six pounds after four weeks.
It's not fabulous. Not as fabulous as I'd like it to be, but hey, it's not that bad, right? I mean - I can't complain since last week I was like dying. Okay, that's an exaggeration, but I was freakin' sick, people. Seriously. And though the week before I worked out big and hard (Mon/Tues/Weds/Thurs/Fri!), last week I didn't work out AT ALL.
So, yeah, most of my loss has happened these last few weeks and I'm okay with that.
I'm glad it's happening, no matter how slow, ya know?
And on Monday I started a new aspect to my own personal challenge. I'm participating in Udi's Gluten Free 14-day Challenge. I met up with them briefly at BlogHer, and they emailed a follow up to see if I'd be interested in this kind of challenge. I've always wanted to give it a go, so I figured why not? Udi's sent me a few products to ease my transition into non-gluten-filled-foods. They sent me a bag of granola, a package of brownie bites/chocolatey muffins and a loaf of g-free bread. They also included a few Qs - which I haven't used yet because our quick grocery stop at Target did not have any Udi's products for me to score - boo!
I had only been on this newfound way of eating for a day, so I know it's got nothing to do with the scale changing, but I'm hoping that next week it does have an impact! Maybe finds a way to help clear my gut of the gluten that's lived there my whole life?
I even cooked up some quinoa for myself! Imagine that?
So - what are some of your favorite weight loss tips? Healthy eating advice? Gluten-free recipes or mindset ideas for me? Please feel free to share, here or on my facebook page.
If you leave me a comment and want to actually have a conversation, leave me your email as some of you aren't Blogger (where I created my blog) peeps and I hate not being able to write back. Especially since I'm sitting here sipping my tea and I'd love to chat! Cheers!
