So we had initially decided that we would weigh in every Friday, take our measurements and then carry on with our day. Week one was pretty darn good, we had both lost a little weight and some inches, good start!
Well today was most certainly a difficult one. For me, it started with me standing on the scale, I had lost 1.5lbs since last Friday but I had been 219.5 for the last few days and was hoping to see a bigger change when I climbed on the scale today. That was a little disappointing. Once we started measuring ourselves though, it became apparent, either we had put inches back on or we were not measuring correctly. We eventually stopped the measuring and have decided to measure once a month, instead of weekly. We may be finding it difficult to measure in the same spot everytime which is very frustrating.
It was one of those days where we were both disapointed, not really having lost anything. We are not ready to give up though, we used the day to discuss our previous diets, eating habits, calorie counting and exercise. This week alone I have done at least 130 minutes of Jillian Michaels and I’ve sweated and managed to keep up more than when I first started. That was way more exercise than I have done in a long time! With changing my diet, I thought it would make a big difference, it was heartbreaking to not see as much of a change as I would have liked, for both of us.
From next week we are going to kick it up a notch, get in about an hours exercise everyday at least and we are thinking of starting calorie counting.
Whatever we decide, you guys will be the first to know.
Much love ~*The Determined Housewife~*
