So after almost 2 1/2 years, I am finally signing up for an exercise class. I’ve been wanting to lose some weight to help me feel strong and have more energy for my kids, but I also wanted the health benefits, reducing my blood sugar levels, etc. I managed to lose my baby weight, so currently I’m at pre-baby weight, which is big for me.
To get there I did the following:
- Reduced processed foods
- Reduced carb intake through bread/tortillas/roti
- Stopped drinking beverages with sugar
- Reduced my sweets intake
- Walk every day with my coworkers for 1/2 hour
- Do my spinal health exercises daily
- Reduced food intake
Now I’ve been stuck at this point for a few weeks, and I have two goals. The first goal is to reduce my BMI to normal, which is (18.5–24.9). I am currently at 25.4 (pre-baby), so it has improved, but to get in that range, I will need to lose another 5 lbs (marriage).
In order to lose more, I joined a Boot Camp that runs twice a week, and I believe it has jolted my body out of its plateau because I’m back down to my lowest weight during my weight loss journey. My second goal is to lose another 5 lbs after that, which would take me to a healthy weight (college).
I want to stay accountable to myself, so I am posting this in hopes that I will keep track of my thoughts and what I want to do.
- Keep reducing processed foods
