Week 3 Post Partum Weight loss Update

Hey everyone!

If you’re been following along, you know that I have been on a 3 weeks journey to lose some additional weight. If you want to hear more about my story, check out week one here. 

Week three brought about challenges as my son hit a growth spurt, teething, and all sorts of fun schedule changes. In combination with my sleep deprivation, we have cold weather changes (making workout out outside a little tough) as well as I have been experiencing what is known as “Mommy Wrist.”

If you’re interested in learning more about this, check it out here.

So needless to say, exercise did NOT happen this week. Which I am OK with. I’ve got to do what’s best for my little and my body. Better to take time off then to not be able to work out at all.

Also – the great thing about tracking my calories in/out is that I can STILL lose without any exercise at all.

I want to encourage you to listen to your body, know when it’s ok to take a break and when to push yourself. Don’t get lazy, but also don’t suffer needlessly.

So here are this week’s results without any exercise at all:

Starting weight : 150.5

Week 1 – 146.6

Week 2 – 145.2

Week 3 – 142. 6

Total Loss : 7.9 lbs.

So as you can see, Abs really are made in the kitchen. Without exercise I still lost 2.5 lbs! Don’t give up! Keep going. You CAN do this.
