P3 Coming to end … what the ? When did that happen!?

Rate this Entry
Seriously, I entered my weight this morning and was totally surprised to see I only have one more day of P3 left! The other surprise was that I only went over my 2 lb window twice. Once from eating avocado (didn’t agree with me) and the other from getting hit with a stomach bug on Sunday. Our bodies become inflamed when we’re trying to fight something off and that can show up as a gain on the scale. I’m starting to feel better and it showed yesterday with a 2+ lbs loss that put me back within range.

I’m bummed that I haven’t been able to work out since Saturday. I was starting to feel strong. I haven’t really seen any reshaping, but from past experience, that tends to happen for me in P4. I’m still a size small top and 4/6 pants and I don’t see that changing. I like my size right where it is. The goal is to tone, tone, tone.

My menu won’t change much in P4. Besides eating a lot of healthy fat, protein, veggies & fruit, I’ll add in things like red wine and starchy veggies (sweet potatoes, green beans, butternut squash, etc.) and maybe quinoa, brown rice or corn tortillas on occasion. Just like P3, I'll add new foods in slowly. I’ve learned a lot about my body in the last couple years and know what works and what doesn’t. Respecting that balance serves me well. And with that I'll leave y'all with one of my favorites quotes: "Being fat is hard, losing weight is hard, maintaining is hard. Choose your hard."

    Love that quote. Gotta keep reminding myself how hard it is to be fat.

    But I'll tell you one thing: exercising is easy. Because I am just so enjoying my walks!

    Congratulations!! I've loved reading all your blogs! P3 is ending for me soon. I'll start another round of injections since I still have quite a bit to lose. I hope I'm as successful as you have been! You've been a great inspiration to me! Here's to a "Healthy" life! :-D
