You know that on top of the world feeling you get when your really rocking an area of your life? It’s amazing! Right now that is how I feel about my weight-loss and PCOS Control. A few post ago in 21 Days Weight Loss Challenge & PCOS I revealed my plan to lose weight.
The thing is it has gone against everything I know about losing weight. I mean come on the world has over 1000000 messages out there on weight-loss. It is a huge industry from work out machines to shake plans. (Yes, I have been on a few of those)
Yes, you read right! The only time I feel hungry is when I skip my snacks, (which I do way too often) or do not eat my heavier meals early in the day. With the 21 Day Weight-loss Challenge guidelines I have replaces my bad habit food with food that fuels my body.
I broke up with my scale and measuring tape a long time ago. It’s scandalous I know! How many pictures do you see with declarations I lost 15 pounds in so many days in your daily life? A lot probably. The thing about PCOS and stress I find is when I put expectations like that on my weightless journey I fail miserably. The only expectation I had was to fit into a pair of favourite dress pants, that didn’t happen.
This graphic hit my social media last week and it’s true. One day a few weeks ago I caught myself in the mirror. My back fat was no longer hanging over my bra. Then I turned forward and saw definition on my rib cage. I have also lost some definition in my breast size. This also happened after my last pregnancy weightless journey. During my pregnancy I go from size A cup to size D cup. It’s not that surprising to see change in this area first.
In the past I have jumped on high impact work out plans but this time I decided to focus on lowing my stress levels instead. Over the last two years I have gained some stress related injuries. The biggest hurdle I had to get over was re-training my mind. A walk that used to take me 15 minutes now takes me an hour. (I also go with 2-3 other moms and their children) After the walks I feel so relax and my stress levels where way down 🙂
How about you? Have you had any results this week with you weight-loss? Do you also struggle like me?
