Today has been a day of reflection for me. I love these days...they are so motivating!
I decided on Wednesday that I needed to look seriously at my calorie intake because I have been sitting in the 170's since the beginning of April. I felt like I was juggling the same weight around and not really dropping it!!
My intake has been low, like around 1300 calories as I have shared before. This I am discovering is too low for a breastfeeding mom who is working out everyday. It totally goes against everything in me to eat more calories to lose weight but I have decided to give it a really honest effort. So my plan is to eat 1800 calories daily for the next 2 weeks and see what happens. I am feeling positive about this change but time will tell!
One of my goals on this journey was to be able to wear my wedding band again. It has been over 3 years since I have been able to wear it at all. This week I put it on to try it and it fits. Still a bit snug but I have been able to wear it for 75% of the day at least before it feels restrictive. It feels so nice to wear it again!
