Motivation Monday - 2 lbs gone

2 lbs. & Another Inch Gone! 11


Wahoo!  Wasn’t expecting to see two pounds gone from the scales this morning.  But that’s exactly what I saw!

Not only that – when I took my measurements, I was down another 1/2 inch from my waist, and another 1/2 inch from my thigh.

Yeah!  Things are coming together, I guess.  I am still using (more or less)  the Cucumber/Lemon Water that I wrote about two weeks ago.  Missed a couple days, but for the most part I have been pretty diligent.  Didn’t really do much exercising this week, so I can’t point to that.  But I intend to get back to my hiking and walking this week.

It must have been just plain being more careful about my eating, and maybe staying busy this week.  I have found that I am a “bored” eater – when I have nothing pressing to do, I eat.  If food is available, and I have a few minutes, I will eat.  There – I have figured it out.  🙂

So I guess packing my schedule tight is my solution to weight gain.  OK, I know that’s too simplistic – but it’s something to think about.  Maybe by staying focused on other things, and staying out of the kitchen, I can keep losing pounds and inches.  If my mind is occupied elsewhere then it can’t be focused on food.

How about you?  Are you a “bored” eater, a “stressed” eater, etc.  What emotion makes you head for the cookie jar?  Or is that your problem at all?  Let me know what YOUR trigger is, and how you deal with it.  🙂

    Congratulations Missy :). I refuse to go on a scale lol, scales scare me. But I started measuring last week, so this week I was able to see I’ve lost 1inch in some places or a 1/2 in others. I measured everywhere lol. The only place that has not moved is my thighs and butt smh (thanks mom). Work in progress

      Thanks Kate! So glad that you found my blog and stopped by to say Hi. Congratulations on your new little one, and good luck on your postpartum weight loss journey. At least you are not like me … I guess you could call this my postpartum weight loss journey, too, but my youngest is 10 years old! It’s good that you are getting back in shape now, instead of letting the weight stay on for years. Good job! Let me know how you are doing. I would love to hear about it. I just started following you on Bloglovin. 🙂

    Congrats!!!!

    I have learned there are certain things I have to stay away from, because I can’t stop with only having one. I am talking about things Chocolate Chip cookies (especially homemade); cokes, Ice Cream, and I could name more if I took the time. If I am watching TV I can snack a tad too much rather than eating a full meal and what I snack on isn’t always the healthiest. To combat that I had to be more selective on what I bought at the grocery store.
