Losing Weight! #KnockOutTheFat

I lost 3.8 pounds!!!!

So excited that I lost weight! 3.8 pounds is a lot considering I got in the challenge late and missed the first two days so it was only 5 days. My BMI lowered from 31 to 30.3 which doesn’t seem like much but now I am only .3 away from being “overweight” instead of “obese”.

What I did differently this past week:

-I walked more and “speed cleaned” (challenged myself to sweep and mop as fast as I could)

-Ate healthier and used my George Foreman grillAlysa put together a meal plan for me and gave me ideas of portion sizes. This helped a lot since I used to think if it was not too fattening it was ok to eat as much as I wanted of it.

-Cut down on sugary, caffeinated drinks

This coming week I plan to:

-Make sure not to skip meals or snacks (I’ve been so busy I forget to eat!)

-Cut down even more on the caffeinated drinks and drink more water

-Follow the circuits that @fitmomtraining is giving us to do and exercise more

(Disclosure: I am part of the George Foreman Knock Out The Fat Weight Loss Challenge. I am being compensated for participating in this challenge but all thoughts are my own.)

  1. Yay!! 3.8 pounds is great! Congrats!

  2. Way to go! It amazes me how little changes can add up to be so much. You are off to a great start. Be sure to put that excitement/motivation into new things. I am a huge fan of walking, too. It has really helped me. Can’t wait to see how you progress through the 90 days. You are doing awesome.

  3. Good for you! I am losing weight too on a high antioxidant chocolate diet. I hope we are both successful! I lost 50 pounds so far and have another 50 pounds to lose.

  4. WOW!! That’s amazing, congrats on your loss and your goals for the week.

  13. Congrats on the weight loss. It’s awesome to see how a simple meal plan and exercise can change the weight loss progress. Good For You!

  14. Congrats!! You’re certainly on the right track! I highly recommend using a food diary (I use MyFitnessPal.com’s iPhone app) because it makes you think about what & how much you’re eating (I’ve lost 25 lbs since Sept). I’ve never heard of the George Foreman Challenge…we love our “grill”, will have to check out the challenge!
