Weight this Week

I weight 163.4. It sucks. I've been running and cutting out sugars, unless it's date night. I did eat cookies this weekend though. Anyway it's been decided I'm going back to the South Beach Diet, Phase One. I never completed this phase last time because I got sick and couldn't keep anything down. This time I'm bound to finish it and get on to phase two. I felt SOOOO good after the first few days of no carbs and sugars. I was feeling thin and my body was feeling healthy again. I can't wait.

Last March I had a miscarriage and before I miscarried my pre-pregnancy weight for baby number two was either 158 or 159. I'll be excited to get to those numbers. My friend who had two miscarriages said she never lost the weight for those no matter how hard she tried but she always lost the pregnancy weight for her kids (she had four kids). She thinks the body just doesn't know how to handle the weight loss, which would make sense. Anyway, wish me luck. I'm sure I'm going to be a bit grumpy this week, at least for a couple days until my body gets used to no sugars or carbs. Thank goodness it's only two weeks before you can start eating them again, the healthy ones that is. :)

    A couple of things...

    Depending on the time of month you weigh yourself, the scale may not be accurate. Keep that in mind! I only weigh myself the Sunday after my period ends, just so I know it's consistent each month and won't freak out about the fluctuations during ovulation and PMSing.

    Remember when you run you're going to be buidling muscle, which weighs more than fat. Have you measured yourself to see if you've lost any inches?

    You know how I feel about South Beach Diet and eliminating things, unless it is medically necessary, but if it's the route you want to take I cheer you on 100%. A couple of other things you may want to try if this doesn't work, are weighing and measuring your food portions. Or cut out the eating out maybe.

    I wish you the BEST of luck! Of course then that would mean that you'd get pregnant and not have to worry about it right now!

    I love ya!
