Weight Gone Update Round 1

I hit  8 pounds gone this past week!!!! So in my first round I did not take any measurements but I lost 8 pounds in 21 days!!!  I have another 16 to my first goal and a little under 3 months to do that!

I am still not getting a ton of exercise in because of my back.  I did have an MRI this week of my neck and I am seeing a new doctor about that and the rest of this pain tomorrow morning.  Hopefully I can get some more answers soon!  I will be trying to do more yoga after I see the new doc and get the ok and hopefully that will help this weight gone hit the next level, I am also hoping to hit the 10 pound mark by this weekend!

Weekly Diet Update

Ok So today is the start of week 2 for me, so far I have lost 3 pounds!  I have not had soda in 10 days now!  I started counting carbs today like I did when I was pregnant with David.  my reasoning for this was loosing 15 pounds while pregnant and only gaining 15 from where I started my pregnancy!

So this morning I had a Sweet Potato Hash for breakfast, along with my coffee! I will share this recipe later today and plan to make  Citrus Grilled Chicken with Brown Rice and a Cucumber and Orange Salad!

I am off to have a snack and do some yoga!

A Little Update Post IUD

So the IUD has been out for a few days now and I am in general feeling better!   I have had much more energy today despite the fact that I worked all night after getting up at 8 am yesterday. The cramping has resolved as I kind of figured it would.  Now I begin to really start watching what I eat and add in some exercise.  I will be making smaller changes to start and going from there.

Tomorrow morning I will weigh in and check my A1C level,   I had gestational diabetes with David so I am going to be working hard the next few months on my physical well-being as well as my spiritual well-being!

I want each and every one of you to know how much the support means to me,  it wasn’t easy to open up and share about this but I felt like I needed to share the word if only to help one person.

I would like to invite y’all to follow me on MyFitnessPal I am DavidsMommy2011 .
