Cashew Loses It

To Create and be eaten. Self improvement, Self Sacrifice and look into my LCHF/Keto/(somewhat)Gluten free journey.

Finally, a return to the downward trend!

Well, it took long enough! This week really seemed beyond impossible. Water retention was the bane of my week. I hopped onto the scale about a week ago to find that it jumped up about 6 lbs overnight, which was immediately followed by my first postpartum visitor. I realize it was water, and it’s still going down, but seeing it read well over 280 was not a happy moment for me. I fully admit, that is why I’m late in posting. I had to really dig down deep and keep telling myself “Yo, it’s water! Seriously, not fat! I’m still kicking butt and taking name!” Today, FINALLY, we’re back in the right direction- 276.2, which is a good solid lb under my last weigh in a week + a few days ago.

Scales are fickle, but tape measures don’t lie.

8/1 →9/1→10/1

  • Waist: 56″ → 52″ → 50″ (-6″)
  • Hips: 58″ → 56.5″ → 54.75″ (-3.25″)
  • Neck: 18″ →16.5″ → 16″ (-2″)
  • Wrist: 7″ → 6.5″  → 6.25″ (-.75″)
  • Thigh: 28″ → 27″ → 25″ (-3″)
  • Calf: 22.5″ → 21″  → 21″ (-1.5″)

So, that’s where we’re at now, it’s definitely a change!

I’ve also noticed that I’m eating more lately, but I’m also exercising like it’s going out of style (well, for me at least) but I’m going to need to keep tabs on that big time. I’ve joined a online weight loss support group. Not that my friends aren’t supportive, but sometimes it’s nice to have someone in the same boat to talk to.

This months goals are:

  1. Take meds and check sugars (I’ve been slacking on the sugar checks, and I did miss 2 pills this month)
  2. Keep exercising at least 5 days a week
  3. Really keep tabs on what I’m eating to make sure it’s not going to become a problem later.
  4. Don’t blow it over halloween. It’s not worth it!

We got this!

Change nothing except your expectations. It’s not a race, it’s a marathon. Slow and steady.
