Frustration

Posted on

Anyone’s metabolism take a huge turd after the baby?

I went into my weight loss challenge with such zest. I counted calories and did a little happy jig when I saw I lost 6 pounds in a week.

Then it just stopped. The last three weeks I have not only stopped losing weight, I have GAINED. After eating 1400 calories a day, I somehow managed to go from 138 to 140.

Shira (bless her sleep trained little heart) has been sleeping through the night for a good 2 months now, so aside from the 50-60 hour work weeks, I have no excuse not to start exercising again. I think this is the only way I will ratchet up my metabolism from “Sloth” to “Lazy Cat”.

Thankfully, Hubs is in the same boat, and we have decided to team up and do a weight loss program. A Program, people! It sounds so officially weight lossie, doesn’t it? I caved and bought 21 Day Fix--which is supposed to FIX all of my weight loss problems and turn me into a ripped super model in 21 days, of course! Duh!

I intend to follow this program to a tee, and post on my results. Little did I know when I bought it that the diet portion of the program would be so detailed, so I’m going to have to do a lot of planning in order to have success. The program comes with colored Tupperware that you fill with certain food groups throughout the day. There is no calorie counting, but rather, you eat whatever you can fit into the Tupperware.

The infomercial made the Tupperware look big and hearty. Little did I know the tupperwear for “fats and dressings” is about as big as a thimble. The other sizes aren’t much bigger than my fist, so who knows how I’ll do on this, but it’s worth a shot.

I start on June 2. Until then, I’m living it up and ate mac and cheese for dinner.
