The 17 Day Diet
June 29, 2012 Leave a comment
I am about to do something I have never done before. Blog about my weight.
Last summer I went on the 17 day diet. I managed to lose the excess baby weight that would not leave naturally. However, when I got pregnant I had been dealing with a back injury that left me with a very limited range of motion several times and heavier than I wanted to be. Before I hurt my back I would walk on my treadmill everyday afterwork. After my injury it took me a while to return to my routine.
I did great on the 17 day diet. Which you can review at: http://www.the17daydiet.com
The weight stayed off and most of it still has except for about 5 pounds that came back to comfort me during some relatively dark moments of the past year. You know the pounds just happen to bring the assistance of Ben and Jerry who really know how ti cheer up a girl.
Now, I’m ready to set these comfort pounds free plus a few more and return to a pre-baby weight that will make me happy. I probably have about 12 pounds to lose. It doesn’t seem like much but it is still so hard. It would also make for a grand total of 55 pounds since having my daughter.
I don’t want to talk weight and pounds. I’m not really obsessed with a particular number. In fact, I have a really bad body image. I from a family where almost everyone has had some kind of eating disorder and body dismorphia. So to shake this, I am more interested in how my clothes fit. Especially, how they fit during that PMS filled bloated part of the the month that changes the physique of almost every woman I know who will admit it. If my clothes fit me with wiggle room then, I know I am happy with my weight. If they are snug, it’s time to do something.
They were starting to get snug. And that is the worst feeling. I figured let me start fresh a new month to begin the Acceleration phase. I have the kindle version of the book ready to go. I have a pinboard on Pinterest dedicated to health and fitness and extra figure friendly recipes. It’s time.
