So here's the skinny, I've got about 130lbs to lose to get me to the top of my "healthy" weight range. I've already lost about 20 lbs from my highest non pregnancy weight. Although, honestly I didn't have to work hard for that to come off. It came off pretty quickly not long after Macie was born and I was nursing and got gingivostomatitis and I couldn't really eat or drink anything. I lived on coke and milkshakes for almost a week.
Since then I've been couting calories (1800 a day) and I've started the Couch to 5k running program. BUT, I've lost zero weight. Infact I weighed myself in perperation for today's post and nothing. There was zero movement on the scale. So, I think maybe I need to decrease my calories a little bit. I'm thinking maybe 1600. The recommended daily amount of calories for me is actually 1500, but I wasn't qute ready for that just yet, but it may work out that's what I have to do.
What is perfectly clear that is that I'm not doing something right. I've been couting calories for 2 weeks now and I've only had maybe 3 days where I've exceded my calories. So, something isn't working.
I don't think I'll be posting my actual weight online. Not yet at least. Not quite ready for that, but I am going to be brave and post a before picture. This was taken this morning. So it's recent.
