I joined Weight Watcher in July of 2011 after seeing my wedding photos and feeling like a blob. I lost 35 lbs before getting pregnant with Mason. I stayed active throughout my pregnancy and felt great. After having Mason in July 2012 it took me almost six months to finally get back into the groove of weight loss. I was active, but I could not get my eating under control.
I ran my first half marathon in the beginning of June and I felt like I could do anything I put my mind to after. I also felt like I deserved a little break from running and I let myself indulge. Apparently that break lasted three month.
Eating is the hardest part of the weight loss journey for me. I can get into a workout groove pretty easily, but I cannot get my food sort out. I recently jumped on the Advocare bandwagon. Today is my last day of the 10 Day Cleanse part of the 24 Day Challenge. I have been tracking my food on MFP everyday and I have been eating clean. I feel great and I have seen a difference on the scale. I know that I will not be able to keep up this habit in reality. I know that people eat clean everyday and that it is possible, but it is not our lifestyle to do it 100% of the time.
What I am learning is that if I track my food and I am consistent I will be successful. I am also getting my body back into feeling full with less and not snacking as much. Oh how I loved my snacks! But, I love how I feel when I take care of my body and when sizes fit that didn't fit before. With determination and heart you can accomplish anything you set your mind to!
