Wow!!! It’s been 5 months since I’ve posted…time does fly. Well, it has obviously been a very busy 5 months. I am delighted to say that I am….45 pounds lighter!!! That is correct…forty-five down. I have to say that WW Freestyle has been an easy weight loss plan for me. I mean no disrespect for anyone who doesn’t like this plan, but I love it and has far surpassed what I thought I’d lose on the program.
During my journey, I have gone down 2 sizes and my husband even demanded I buy new clothes….LOVE that!! I think the biggest change is that when I do eat something that isn’t particularly good for me, it doesn’t taste as good as I remembered AND sometimes I don’t feel great after eating it so it makes me not want to eat it again. I am a total sweets lover. When there is something around that falls into that category, I really stop and think if it is worth the extra points. Sometimes it is, but most times it isn’t. Also, some foods that I took for granted before (chicken kebab salad), I now look at as a treat and it is something that is good for me and fits within my eating plan. The mindset of a healthier eating plan has always been a roadblock for me so I am thrilled that I have internalized the healthful eating mindset.
Another thing that I have discovered on my journey is Pilates reformer classes. LOVE them. I have not added a ton of workouts to my schedule while losing the weight. I know that I need to tone my muscles now and Pilates reformer is perfect for that. It is very low impact and makes you feel great. If you have a Club Pilates near you, give it a try. You can get an introductory class for free and then if you sign up after your intro class, you can get some great deals. (I receive no compensation from Club Pilates, I just really like it and want others to enjoy it too.)
