Kaya Maganda's Journal, 11 April 2018

So I cheated. Yup. Between my last weigh-in and today, I had 2 cheat meals and 1 cheat snack, so I did NOT lose the last 7 pounds that I wanted to lose by today, which is 1 year from when I stopped breastfeeding and started dieting. So, officially, I lost 53 pounds in 1 year.

I lost 53 pounds in 1 year. I guess that's nothing to sneeze at.

So I'm already back on the diet 100% as of this morning, and I didn't slack off on exercise while I was on the break, so I've got that going for me. I anticipate a little stall or gain with actual scale numbers because I'm lifting weights now, and I've gone from 10 reps being too easy to now 25 reps getting to be too easy. Muscle weighing more than fat is going to be a factor. I have to put that down to remind myself of that, because I will absolutely forget and then not lose weight as fast and hate myself for days over it.

I have started taking my measurements, which I will post below. There will be no more weighing or measuring until after my period. I can feel it coming, I know it will be here in less than a week, and I only risk hurting my own self-esteem if I obsess over numbers between now and the end of it.

I have discovered that yoga is absolutely not the best exercise for me, and so I have put it away for a while. There is a very gentle program that I will be doing during my heaviest flow days, but I believe that the weight-lifting program that I am doing is better for my body, and seems to help with the injuries that I've sustained since getting active again. Somehow the yoga seems to make them worse. I may be doing something improperly or poorly as far as my postures, so I'm just going to stop risking it. Yoga isn't recommended for "type O" people like me anyway.

So here are my measurements:

Weight: 222lb
Hips: 44"
Waist: 43"
Underbust: 35"
Overbust: 43"
Right Thigh: 25"

I'm hoping to see some of those numbers come down by the next weigh in... Which should be 4/25/18. Wish me luck!
222.0 lb Lost so far: 53.0 lb.    Still to go: 67.0 lb.    Diet followed reasonably well.

Way to go!! 53 pounds is an amazing accomplishment! And a few “cheat” meals/days here and there aren’t going to kill you, nor will they ruin the progress you’ve made. It sounds like you allowed yourself some wiggle room, took it, and now are back on track. Taking measurements is so smart, I really need to get on that. Watching the # on the scale bounce around doesn’t help when I’m not feeling motivated. Anyways, way to go and you’re going to kill it by the 25th!!
