Week 4 of Body After Baby!
I am happy to report FINALLY some weight loss around here!!!!
Recap: Starting Weight: 180.6
Weight this AM: 178.2!!!!
What did I do different this week?
I actually started “counting calories” like I am supposed to.
According to a calorie counting website, I should be taking in about 2000 calories a day to maintain breastfeeding and loose weight. That would be one pound a week. I’ve been trying to stay between 1800 and 2000.
Well, it worked! I noticed it worked best when I just became aware of what I was eating. I admit to having ice cream this week. Several times. But I accounted for it in my calorie budget! I made sure i ate three meals a day. With snacks. And when I work at night, I made sure to eat only soup or a lean cusine meal for dinner. And I snack on yogurt( Dannon’s Greek Yogurt REALLY helps. It has 12 grams of protein!!!).
So I am very proud of myself despite the face that I haven’t exercised.
But that will change as of today!!!
The boy is going to daycare and I WILL exercise!!!
So have a good week ladies!!!!
