Sorry for the delayed absence. I got a killer migraine that lasted 2 days and couldn't really get on the computer. Then we headed to the beach, and now here I am again. =)
On Saturday I got a chance to weigh myself and I was 139.6, so that is what I am posting for last week's weight.
I'm starting the 17 Day Diet again today, (and I think my mom is joining me, too!). I've gone back and forth about wanting to do it. I have probably 10-15 pounds that could still come off, especially going according to all the "charts" that are out there. For a person 5'4" like me, I'm supposed to weigh anywhere between 102 (!!) to 130. So yeah, I could lose some more. But, here's the thing.
I'm happy where I'm at. I feel good. We went shopping this weekend and I'm solidly in a size 8. 10's are definitely too big. At Loft I even fit into a size 6, but I hear their sizing is a little off, in favor of people fitting a smaller size than usual. I feel comfortable in my skin and clothes, even though I could definitely tone up, and I don't "love" the way I look in a bathing suit. But really, I've NEVER loved the way I looked in a bathing suit, even before kiddos.
So I'm in a bit of a conundrum. Because I am so content, it makes it hard to restrict myself. But on the other hand, if I could lose 10-15 pounds, that'd be great! And the 17 Day Diet seems very doable, so I'm going to give it a shot. We'll see what happens.
I have some chicken baked up and I'm marinating some turkey tenderloins too, which I'll grill either tonight or tomorrow. I also plan to get a rotisserie chicken and eat the breast meat.
Other than that, things are going well. We had a nice time at the beach and now it's back to the daily grind. My kiddos start swimming lessons today for 2 weeks, so we're off to do that soon.
Hope you are all doing well and had a great Father's Day weekend!
